FAQs About Our Maryland Mattress Cleaning Services:
Q. How often should a mattress be cleaned?
A: Commonly it is recommended that you clean your mattress at least once a year but if you are suffering from allergies then you may need to clean it more frequently.
Q. Can I just vacuum my own mattress?
A. You can do this but it won’t be as effective as you may think in removing unwanted dust mites. This is because most common vacuum cleaners do not have enough power to suck up the dust mites and other unwanted particles on your mattress.
Q. How long does the cleaning process take?
A. This depends primarily on the size of your mattress but usually it would take between 15 to 20 minutes for single mattresses and about 30 minutes for double mattresses. For King and Queen Mattresses it may take up to an hour to finish cleaning it.
Q. How long after you’ve finished do we have to wait before we can make the bed and go to sleep?
A. You should wait about an hour or two before making the bed and sleeping on it after we perform our cleaning process. This is to allow the cleaning solutions that we use to evaporate and for your mattress to dry.
Q. Is there any mess after you finish?
A. Absolutely not. After we are done cleaning you just need to wait for your mattress to dry and then you can already make your bed and sleep on it.

“Clean Choice has cleaned the carpets in two of my houses and I have been amazed at how great they look. The carpets, both over 10 years old, look brand new. I was sure I was going to have to replace them but decided to try and have them cleaned first and I am so glad I did. Keith is extremely passionate about his job and very dedicated to providing the best service possible. I have already referred them to several of my friends and will continue to do so in the future.”Elizabeth Bare in Columbia, MD
