We’ll answer some of the most common carpet cleaning questions our customers have.

Welcome to Action Restoration and Property Services, Northern Colorado’s top-rated choice for routine carpet cleaning and residential disaster recovery. We manage a lot of messy problems from the move-out clean for apartment complex owners turning over tenants to mold removal and deep carpet cleaning following a flood. As you can imagine, we get questions all the time from folks wanting more information about carpet cleaning in general and our service offerings. In today’s post, we’ll answer some of the most common carpet cleaning questions.

How often should I have my carpet professionally cleaned?

It’s generally recommended to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. However, the frequency may vary depending on the level of foot traffic, the presence of pets or young children, and other factors. For instance, we highly recommend semi-annual carpet cleaning if one pet or two children live in the home and quarterly for more than one pet or more than two children. For carpets in rental homes, vacation homes, and properties with high tenant turnover, we recommend professional carpet cleaning at least three times a year or between tenants when feasible.

Can professional carpet cleaning remove all stains?

Professional carpet cleaning can remove many types of stains, including those caused by food, spilled drinks, and pets. Some stains may be too deeply embedded in the carpet fibers and may require specialized treatment or even replacement of the affected area. The team at Action Restoration and Property Services uses many different carpet cleaning techniques and stain removal solutions to tackle even the most stubborn stains and is successful at removing or reducing most stains.


Can carpet cleaning damage my carpet?

Professional carpet cleaning methods are generally safe and effective for most types of carpets. However, some carpets may be more delicate and require specialized cleaning techniques to avoid damage. When you’ve got carpet cleaning professionals at work on your carpets, they know which carpets require special care and which ones need more aggressive methods employed. The carpet cleaning experts at Action Restoration and Property Services use their skills and current technology to avoid damaging our client’s carpets and homes.

Is professional carpet cleaning safe for my pets and family?

Absolutely! Professional carpet cleaning uses better and safer tools and techniques than DIY carpet cleaning which relies on abrasive chemicals and harsh methods. Professional steam cleaning that uses truck-powered suction relies mostly on water and steam to remove stains and debris, and then high-powered suction takes the dirty water away from the home and your family. Professional carpet cleaning makes your home safer for kids and pets by removing allergens, debris, mold, and microbes from your carpet. For family and pet safety, we recommend regular professional carpet cleaning.
