K-Tech Kleening FAQ
How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
Frequently used carpet should be professionally cleaned by a qualified technician at least once a year-perhaps a little longer interval for infrequently used carpet and even sooner for carpet in homes occupied by respiratory sensitive or allergic persons or in homes with indoor pets.
What is the standard drying time when carpet is cleaned?
The IICRC S100 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning specifies: (Section 7.5, Drying)...When cleaning carpet, it is highly recommended that drying occur within six to eight hours or less: however, drying time must not exceed 24 hours. Failure of the professional to implement drying procedures could result in a variety of after-cleaning problems. Often, occupant cooperation is needed to expedite drying.
With normal temperature and humidity coupled with use of your heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, the carpet should be dry in much less than 24 hours. If it stays damp longer than that, the opportunity for microbial growth and associated odor arises.
Are there any health benefits that come from HVAC system cleaning?
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.
How often should residential HVAC systems be cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the home owner. Some of the things that may lead a home owner to consider more frequent cleaning include:
-Smokers in the household
-Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
-Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
-Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home's HVAC system
-After home renovations or remodeling
-Prior to occupancy of a new home
How can I protect my carpet from pet stains?
According to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, 63 percent of U.S. households have a dog, cat or both. "Accidents" on carpet require quick cleanup to remove bacteria and odor. The IICRC recommends these tips to maintain a clean and healthful home. -Extract the moisture. Place an inch-thick layer of paper towels on the area and place a color-fast, absorbent towel on top to absorb moisture. Leave it in place overnight. -Seal the floor underneath. Repeated accidents can lead to deep odor penetration into underlying concrete or wood. Treat under floors before installing new carpet. Thoroughly clean, disinfect and seal concrete floors. With wood floors, cut out and replace wood rot. Disinfect the stained area and apply wood sealer. -Enlist a certified professional. Without specialized chemicals and extraction equipment, pet owners may not be able to completely remove animal soiling from carpet. To remove stubborn odor and stains, the IICRC recommends hiring qualified professionals for deep extraction cleaning and specialty stain removal.
