What process is used during cleaning?

Blue Sky Carpet Care uses a method called Hot Water Extraction. Carpet manufacturers recommend this method to keep new carpets looking their best.

What kind of equipment do you use?

We use one of the most powerful truckmount systems on the market, the Prochem Everest 650 Truckmount. Featuring a 650 triflow blower for true dual wand operation, total temperature control, and contemporary styling. This is the perfect choice for both carpet cleaning and water restoration.

How long will the carpet take to dry?

The drying time takes between 7 to 8 hours depending on air circulation, temperature and humidity. Using any type of fans will greatly reduce the drying time.

How wet is the carpet after the cleaning?

Our superior and powerful truckmount has incredible vacuum suction leaving the carpet only damp to the touch. After 8-10 hours your carpet should be completely dry.

Can I walk on the carpet after the cleaning?

Yes, but try to as little as possible and only use the booties we supply you with after the cleaning. The carpet needs to dry fully for normal traffic again.

Can we put furniture back on the carpet?

No, not until the carpet is fully dry and we suggest waiting 24 hours to make sure the carpet is totally dry.

How often should I have my carpets cleaned?

Carpet manufacturers recommend every 12 months. If there is high traffic areas in your home we recommend every 6 months.
