Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the questions we are most frequently asked. If you have additional questions about our carpet cleaning services or method, please call us at 920-469-0949.
Which cleaning program is right for us?
The best professional carpet cleaning program depends on the condition of your carpets, the type of wear and tear your carpets experience, and your budget. These are all factors we can evaluate during a free onsite quote.
Will you provide a quote over the phone?
No. While we can provide an estimate based on square-footage, we cannot offer an accurate quote without inspecting your carpets and discussing your options. We are always happy to provide such an inspection at no charge.
Do you offer carpet cleaning services specials?
Yes. Our inspections and quotes are always free. In addition, there are many carpet cleaning services that can be added to certain cleaning programs without extra charge. We also post special offers on our Facebook page.
Do you clean under furniture?
At BowTie we prefer to move furniture when possible or practical. Homeowners are responsible for handling small belongings, delicate items, and valuable items.
What is Hot Water Extraction?
We use the “hot water extraction” method for floor cleaning. (210°F- 230°F). Cleaning agents and hot water are introduced and simultaneously extracted during the professional carpet cleaning process. The equipment is parked outside. Cleaning tools and hoses come inside.
What is the difference between Shampooing vs “Hot Water Extraction”
In the shampooing process, the carpet is scrubbed with a rotating brush(s) creating a shampoo and dirt slurry. The slurry is then vacuumed. At BowTie, we simultaneously loosen and remove contaminants using a spray and extraction process.
Do my carpets need to be vacuumed before professional carpet cleaning?
Yes, carpets should be vacuumed to maximize the effectiveness of our deep carpet cleaning process. We can, upon request, pre-vacuum for you.
How long will it take my carpet to dry?
Typical drying time is 8 – 24 hours depending on humidity and ventilation. When humidity is high, using fans can accelerate drying time.
How long will it take?
Our deep carpet cleaning services require approximately 25-minutes per room when empty. As room contents increase, so does the time need to clean around them.
Is vinegar a good cleaning agent?
While vinegar can be considered a floor cleaning agent, it is more useful as a rinsing agent used after other (more effective) cleaning compounds. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant, the smell of which disappears upon drying.
Does BowTie's process eliminate dust mites?
Yes. Our specialized floor cleaning processes and temperatures remove dust mites and eliminate the allergenic effects they can have.
Does BowTie's process eliminate fleas?
Yes. Our unique combination of process temperature and cleaning agents will remove fleas.
