Carpet Cleaning FAQ

What’s the safest and most effective carpet cleaning method?
The major carpet manufacturers and carpet cleaning industry experts are recommend hot water extraction cleaning, which is what we use at ApexClean. There are other methods, such as dry cleaning, shampooing or the absorbent-pad method, none of which are recommended for the best results.
What is “hot water extraction” carpet cleaning?

Hot Water Extraction (generally referred as Steam Cleaning), is the ideal method if you are concerned about exposure to volatile chemicals. Hot water, along with high pressure cleaning or rinsing solution, is sprayed into the carpet fibers and simultaneously vacuumed out along with all the dirt and debris, using a powerful extractor.
Within a couple of hours, your carpet will be dry again and ready for use. It’s recognized as the most effective method to remove dirt, pollutants and residue from both soft and hard surfaces.

But don’t just take our word for it!
If you have any doubts, just find out from your carpet manufacturer. There is good reason why almost every major carpet manufacturer recommends (often for warranty reasons) that you use hot water extraction to keep your home carpeting in good condition.

Do I need to do anything before or after the cleaning?



  • It would be helpful if you do a light vacuuming before we arrive. (Also after the cleaning once it has completely dried.)
  • You may wish to remove any small items from the area to be cleaned.

Weather permitting for Carpet drying


  • It is important to help your carpets dry faster by opening your windows and doors (weather permitting) so that the fresh and dry air can assist the drying. You may also consider using your air conditioners, dehumidifiers or fansslip-and-fall-injury.
  • You can walk on the carpet immediately after cleaning, but be careful to avoid any re-soiling from your street shoes.
  • Since furniture can cause stains on damp carpet, protective pads should be placed under the furniture.
  • Damp carpet can be slippery. Please be careful on the stairs and when walking from your freshly cleaned carpet to any hard surface.

How long will it take to dry?

Drying time depends on the humidity, air movement, temperature and the type of carpet. If you help in the drying, by opening your windows and doors (weather permitting), turning on air conditioners, dehumidifiers or fans – all of which is highly recommended – it should dry within a couple of hours. Otherwise, it may take longer – up to a day or two.
