Let me start by defining the difference between a spot and a stain: a spot is any foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) that is removable by standard cleaning methods.(The foreign material is on or around the carpet fiber) A stain is foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) on carpet that is not usually removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material has penetrated ‘soaked into’ fiber and has changed or damaged the fiber itself) Some stains may be very difficult or impossible to remove.

How often should I have my ducts cleaned?
The more prone to allergy symptoms the more often you will need the ducts cleaned. For most folks every two to three years is about right.
If I need my carpets cleaned should I have the ducts cleaned first or after?
You should always clean the ducts first followed by the carpets. The main reason for this is that I have to be able to access all of your registers to clean the ducts properly. If the carpets are wet at the time it increases the potential for a mishap. Don’t forget to ask about our great discounts if you have the carpets and ducts cleaned on the same visit.
I have something large that is lodged in my duct; can you get it out during the cleaning?
Unfortunately some objects if they are heavy enough or large enough will not be easy removed with a standard air duct cleaning. The cleaning system is designed to use high speed/ high impact airflow to remove dust and light debris that is breathable and commonly recycled in your home. Large heavy items, for example a brick, will be passed over by the air flow. If you have a problem involving such a blockage, still give me a call I can always recommend the best course of action.
