Carpet Cleaning Questions & Answers
We typically do not move furniture while cleaning carpet. However, in the rare exception that we do, we can only move small items (i.e. coffee tables, end tables, dining room chairs, recliners, light sofas, etc.). We can not move heavy items (i.e. china cabinets, entertainment centers, armoires, etc.) or anything with electronics and other breakables on or in it. This policy is to ensure the safety of our technicians and your home or business.
Your carpet cleaning expert will carry out a thorough pre-vacuum service which is vital for removing dry soil before the cleansing process begins. Once carpets have been vacuumed thoroughly, we will utilize an environmentally-friendly and nontoxic cleaning solution. This solution will be used on your entire carpet to soften up tough dirt and oily soils that have built up over time. We utilize a powerful truck-mounted carpet cleaning machine to extract dirt, leaving only a soft, fresh, clean carpet.
We offer a Scotchgard™ application for a cleaner and softer finish long after your carpet is cleaned. Scotchgard™ gives your carpet an “invisible shield” that will make it easy for you to eliminate soil built up over time through your vacuuming. It also penetrates deep in your carpet’s fiber coating to improve its overall resistance to stains.
The basic prices are outlined in our Pricing Guide. Additional services require an additional fee, which our carpet cleaning experts will discuss with you during your Professional Evaluation.
You can expect your Allklean expert to meet with you to discuss your needs. Once a plan is in place they will do a pre-clean, then they will clean, rinse, and dry your carpet.

When you’re ready to get your carpets cleaned, give us a call or schedule an appointment. If you have any furniture items that you would like to move, they should be moved before we arrive. We typically do not move furniture or items of any kind. You should pre-vacuum and leave an opening in your driveway closest to your entrance to allow easy access. Once we arrive we will take care of the rest!
As a general rule you should vacuum your carpet once or twice a week, depending on if you have pets, allergies, smoke, or have high traffic in certain rooms.
To keep your carpets in peak condition we suggest getting professional carpet cleaning:
Every 3 to 6 months in high traffic/heavy soil areas
Every 6 to 12 months in medium soil/medium traffic areas
Every 12 to 18 months in light soil/light traffic areas

Tiel & Grout Cleaning Questions & Answers
Tiles will eventually lose their surface quality and can quickly become ugly and slippery. Grout, on the other hand, is prone to dirt and limescale build-up because of its porous nature. Without cleaning, this will turn them into filthy, unappealing fillings on your kitchen or bathroom floor. Without the proper cleaning knowledge, tools, and techniques, keeping your stone tiles and grout squeaky clean can be a daunting task. It’s hard to do it yourself. Using a toothbrush and hot, soapy water will just give you sore knees and backache rather than a spotless floor. With our contained steam cleaning process you will get an exceptional clean without the unnecessary mess!
This all depends on the amount of traffic and dirt that accumulates on your floors. When your tile and grout start to get build up and discoloring that you cannot remove we suggest calling Allklean. Typically this is once every couple of years.
To ensure your tiles and grout are free from dirt, stain, and oil we use an advanced tile cleaning tool and hot water to wash the floor with 900-1200 PSI of pressure, depending on the surface area. What’s more, our self-contained tile cleaning tool will also remove dirty water in an instant leaving no mess whatsoever – only a spotless and germ-free floor!

It will ensure that your tiles look as clean and spotless as ever between professional cleanings.
