Cleaning Services and More
Carpets in New England take a beating with heavy foot traffic, spills, sand, salt, water and other messes that can make them look dirty and worn. Regular, professional commercial carpet cleaning is the best way to extend the life of your carpets and keep them looking beautiful for their lifetime. Our commercial carpet cleaning services maintain the look of carpets in high-traffic commercial environments, including offices, hospitality, and retail spaces. We also repair and brighten existing carpets to restore their original brilliance.
Think of your carpet as a type of air filter in your business. When things like dust, dirt, bacteria and dust mites collect on your carpet, in time you will start to breathe in that buildup. Merely vacuuming or using household carpet cleaners to remove dirt and spills is not enough to ensure the air you’re breathing is as clean as possible.
By investing in a preventative carpet maintenance program, you can rest assured that our commercial grade, advanced equipment will give your carpets the deepest and most thorough wash possible.
Our commercial carpet cleaning services include:
- A free, on-site estimate
- A comprehensive assessment of your carpets
- Spot and stain removal
- Carpet deodorizing
- Carpet protection
- Minor repairs to fraying and loose carpets, if needed
- Cleaning times scheduled at your convenience.
FAQs – Carpet Services
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO HAVE MY CARPETS CLEANED AT MY BUSINESS?
The amount of time will be contingent on the size of the area needing to be cleaned and processes used, either low moisture, portable extraction, or truck-mount extraction, in terms of efficiencies and time. A highly trained technician can help you choose a program that best meets your needs and schedule.
IS PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANING EXPENSIVE?
Professional carpet cleaning can be just pennies compared to the cost of replacing it. Call today to get an estimate from one of our professionals.
WILL CARPET CLEANING BE DISRUPTIVE TO MY BUSINESS?
The team will work with you to schedule a time after hours or we can develop a customized program to clean your carpets in sections. Our technician will inform you of estimated dry times needed.
CAN I USE HOUSEHOLD CARPET CLEANERS FOR SPOT REMOVAL?
We recommend using only Manufacturer Approved Cleaning Products. For more information, contact Higgins Flooring Services to ensure the life and quality of your carpet.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET MY CARPETS PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED?
To keep the carpets in your business in looking there best and in good shape, we recommend setting up your business on the Higgins Floor Care Program to provide regular care and maintenance which can help extend the life of your carpets. It’s best to get your carpets cleaned quarterly using our low moisture method to remove soil before it gets ground-in your carpet fibers. By doing a quarterly carpet cleaning, you may only need a professional deep cleaning carpet service once a year.
WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO WALK ON MY FLOORS AFTER CARPET CLEANING?
It’s best to allow a drying time of six to eight hours before you can walk on your carpet. It is best to wait two days before placing heavy furniture back onto carpet if not using blocks.
WILL THERE BE AN ODOR?
Depending on the type of carpet we’re cleaning, you may notice a faint scent. This is especially prevalent when cleaning wool carpets. The amount of time it takes for the odor to dissipate is usually within an hour but varies based on air circulation, heat and humidity.
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING PRIOR TO THE TECHNICIAN ARRIVING FOR MY SCHEDULED SERVICE?
We recommend removing breakables or fragile items from the rooms that will be cleaned. One of our team will provide you details on what should be done prior to a cleaning technicians arrival.
DO I HAVE TO MOVE FURNITURE?
To get the best results with professional carpet cleaning, we recommend removing furniture from the rooms we will be cleaning. Items we clean around instead of moving include file cabinets, conference room tables, bookcases, lobby furniture and large pieces of furniture.
ARE THERE INSTRUCTIONS TO FOLLOW AFTER MY CARPETS ARE CLEANED?
Immediately after cleaning, it’s best to allow carpets to dry for 6-8 hours before walking on them. Walking on them may flatten the fibers. Use air movers if needed to help air circulation as this will speed up the drying time. If a carpet protector such as Scotchgard™ was applied, foot traffic should be minimized for up to 24 hours to let the product cure. Don’t move any furniture back in place until the carpet is completely dry or Scotchgard™ carpet protector has cured.
