Our Carpet Cleaning Process

At Dry Advantage Carpet Care, we want your carpet cleaning service in Lincoln NE and vicinity to be the best possible and  we know how important it is to restore your carpet to the best condition possible.  That is why we use hot water extraction, (also known as steam carpet cleaning) the method of carpet cleaning recommended by all the major carpet manufacturers.  Our process also differs from many other carpet cleaners in Lincoln in that we take advantage of significant agitation of the carpet fibers to loosen soiling for better results.  And because of the powerful system vacuum and extra drying measures taken, your carpet will be dry and ready for your use again very quickly.

4. What method do you use to clean carpet?

We clean using hot water extraction to provide a thorough deep down clean.  This is the method recommended by the major carpet manufacturers.

5. If I clean my carpet, will it get dirty again faster?Bucket & Sponge

No.  We pre-condition your carpet then clean with a synthetic detergent in hot water that rinses away the soiling without leaving a residue.

6. Will the cleaning chemicals you use harm me or my children or pets?

No.  The cleaning solutions we use are registered with the E.P.A. as safe, non-toxic and biodegradable.

7. Doesn’t hot water extraction cleaning leave my carpet wet all night?

No.  In some conditions of temperature, humidity and carpet type it can take longer than normal to dry.  Normally, with our process your carpet should be dry in a few hours and even sooner if we are able to dry the areas with our carpet fan.  You can also help by opening windows a bit to lower the humidity inside and turning on your ceiling fans or using your own fans to move the air near the carpet for faster drying.

8. How long does it take to clean my carpet?

stop watchAn average size house with 4 or 5 carpeted rooms and a flight of stairs will take a few hours to clean. Heavily soiled carpet will take a bit longer.

9. I have pet stains, can you remove them from my carpet? And for how much?

We use a urine treatment for dog and cat urine.  It is more successful on newer urine stains, since older stains have already discolored the carpet fiber.  If the areas of concern are few and small, there is generally no additional charge.  For more significant spotting, pet urine stain removal service can run from $10 to $50 or more per room depending on the severity of the stains.  For extensive urine contamination and odor, you may find the only way to correct the problem is to replace the carpet and pad and then clean and seal the subfloor.

10. I have furniture in the rooms I want cleaned, do you move it?dresser

We perform light furniture moving, cost depending on the size of the items being moved, for example a sofa is about $6.00.  Because it does take considerable time and effort to move furniture within a room we are cleaning, it is very helpful if you are able to move out as much of the furniture as possible.  If you want a couple of small pieces moved off the carpet, we may do that for no charge if you can move it back when the carpet dries.  Otherwise, we will clean everywhere we can reach with our cleaning wand and all open spaces.

11.  Are there any additional fees or charges for your service?

The prices we quote you on the phone should provide a good estimate.  We will ask you questions about your carpet to qualify your needs and concerns to get you the right price for your carpet cleaning.  This way there are no surprises when we arrive at your home.  At your home, we will measure the areas to be cleaned to give you an exact price.  If you decide on additional service such as carpet  protectant or sanitizer or have special spotting needs such as wax removal or red stain treatment, we will give you a price for those services.

12.  How soon are you available to clean my carpet?

There are some cases where we can clean your carpet the same day, but usually we can work you into the schedule within a few days to a week.

13.  I work during the day.  How do we get the cleaning done?

This is a common situation.  We will try to coordinate this with you the best we can.  Occasionally this is accomplished with late afternoon appointments or Saturday cleaning.  Often we come early to meet with you before you need to leave then lock up when we are done.  Also our clients often give us a garage code so we can get in to clean or just leave a door unlocked for us.

14.  What makes your service different from other carpet cleaning services?

I am the owner/operator of the company since 2003 with extensive carpet cleaning  experience.  I truly care about restoring your carpet to its best possible condition.  Unlike larger companies, my performance directly affects my business and my life.  If I do a bad job, I could not stay in business.  I also am IICRC certified and have more training and experience than most employee technicians that come into your home.  I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my clients that are beneficial for everyone.
