Popular Carpet, Mattress, & Upholstery Cleaning questions.


How Long Will It Take?

When Will Everything Be Dry?

How Long Will It Take?


It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete the first room. It includes a walk-through, consultation, equipment set-up, and the carpet cleaning process. Additional rooms take about 15-20 minutes per room. Using a rotary extractor or a self-contained portable unit can add 10-15 minutes to each room. 


After set-up, it takes 15-25 minutes to complete a mattress cleaning, depending on its size, number, and severity of stains.

Subsurface urine removal can easily double this time.


After set-up, a typical sofa cleaning will take 20-30 minutes. Smaller pieces, such as love seats, recliners, and chairs, naturally take less time.


What Do I Need To Do?

How Long Will It Take?

Should I vacuum before you arrive?
Yes. The result is even better if my deep, quick dry carpet cleaning follows a thorough vacuuming. You save time and money by doing this step yourself. If you are having mattresses or upholstery cleaned, I will be vacuuming them as part of the process.

Should I move the furniture, or will you?
I am a one-person carpet cleaning operation and not able to move furniture. However, it is not necessary to move large furniture as the carpet under it is typically the cleanest in the room. But please move any small pieces and knick-knacks out of the way before I arrive. All accessible carpet in the room will be deep cleaned.

When can I put the furniture back?
Carpets typically take between 3-5 hours to dry, depending on temperature, humidity, thickness, and type of carpet. Carpet and rugs dry from the bottom up, and when it feels dry on top, it is time to move some furniture.

What is the drying time for mattress cleaning and upholstery cleaning?
The typical drying time is about an hour or less for both mattresses and upholstered furniture. 

Very little cleaner and rinse are used in the process compared to carpet cleaning. 

Plus, fabrics do not have the ability to hold the amount of moisture that a carpet does.
