FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Marc Tahiliani owner of American Carpet cleaning answers some frequently asked question:

How long does your carpet take to dry?

After a cleaning expect your carpets to take anywhere from 7 – 24 hours to dry. Fans and using you’re A/C can help speed up the process. If you decide you fans to accelerate drying times, please ensure the blades have been dusted. Tempe, AZ usually doesn’t suffer from humidity so your carpets should dry faster than 24 hours unless it is monsoon season.

How long will it take to clean my carpets?

You can expect about 25 minutes per room, depending on the amount of furniture that has to be moved and the amount of dirt in your floors. If it has been a long time since you had a cleaning it may take longer for your first treatment. Also if you have pets it may take longer to ensure all pet hair is collected.

What do I have to do before the carpet cleaning appointment?

There is nothing you have to do before the appointment but there are some things you might want to do. Here is a list of things you may want to do before your carpets are cleaned. -Marc Tahiliani

  • Lightly Vacuuming can help pick up surface dirt and speed up the process
  • Make sure you get everything you need from carpeted rooms that you might need during the drying time.   No walking on wet carpets will help keep them clean for as long as possible.
  • Although you do not have to move any furniture yourself, you may want to move any expensive electronics or other items for your own peace of mind.
  • If you have fleas, carpet cleaning is not guaranteed to completely remove them. Consider having an exterminator treat your home for fleas prior to the cleaning for best results.
