Does CLEAN Choice Offer Free Estimates? 

Our team would be happy to provide you with a free estimate, online, or over-the-phone. When you contact us, our team will ask you questions regarding the size of the property, specific cleaning concerns such as wine and pet stains to provide you with a reliable estimate.

Is CLEAN Choice Certified Green/Eco-Friendly?

In 2008, we became the first carpet cleaning service in Maryland to receive the Carpet & Rug Institute’s Seal of Approval. The equipment and cleaning solutions we utilize are certified Green/Eco-Friendly. We are also certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, & Restoration Certification. Combined, these certifications and our choice to use Green Seal Certified Products are a testament to more than 30 years of commitment to providing high-quality services while protecting the environment.

What Is the Benefit of Using Pure Water for Carpet Cleaning?

We utilize a truck-mounted purified water system for our cleaning processes. We do this because purified water is free of allergens, toxic metals, and other elements that can be found in regular tap water. As the purified hot water interacts with the cleaning solution, it creates a powerful cleaning agent that is highly effective at removing particulates, microbes, and stains from deep within the carpet fibers. Further, the cleaning solutions we utilize do not harm or damage the fibers which help protect the color and lifespan of the carpet.

How Long Does It Take to Clean an Area?

Assuming the area is around 250 square feet, it takes between 20-30 minutes to thoroughly clean a single room. This can vary considerably depending on how much furniture is in the room, or whether deep stains are present.

How Long Does It Take for Carpet to Dry?

It typically takes between 8-24 hours for a carpet to be completely dry. The dry time is heavily influenced by the amount of humidity in the air, the temperature of the room, and whether there is adequate air flow over the carpet. It is also influenced by the thickness of the carpet and the underlying pad.

When a Stain is “Gone,” Is it Gone Forever? 

Some stains and odors are more stubborn than others. Sometimes, staining agents can leak deep within the carpet pad and can resurface as the carpet dries. For example, red wine, coffee, tea, and urine may require several cleanings to sufficiently remove the discoloration and odor. Depending on the carpet fiber and the age of the carpet, full removal may not be possible.

Will Cleaning Attract More Dirt?

Our cleaning systems do not leave a sticky residue behind them. This means that there is nothing but pure, clean water left to evaporate at the end of the cleaning. With regular vacuuming and routine care, the carpet will remain clean.

Can CLEAN Choice Clean Oriental Rugs?

Oriental and area rugs typically receive heavy amounts of traffic. While they are sturdy, they often require specialized care to protect their vibrant colors and delicate fibers. Our certified professionals are highly-skilled at cleaning your prized carpets and will dutifully inspect and test the item prior to the application of any treatment.

How Often Should Carpet be Cleaned?

Depending on the carpet, we typically recommend cleaning once every 6 to 12 months.
