I’ve been cleaning commercially since I was 16 and working at my high school in Maryland. I moved to New Mexico in 1985. I continued cleaning while I studied for my computer science degree but I liked the idea of working for myself so in 1989 I started my first cleaning business. Throughout the years I started and run several cleaning businesses. Greg’s Carpet Cleaning is my fourth. I’m now at that point in my life that I would rather clean myself instead of hiring and training someone else. This is something I enjoy and seeing the before and after that comes from cleaning something dirty never gets old.
Is this the same as steam cleaning?
No, it’s a lot better. Since I use less water, the carpets dry in hours, not days and without a moldy smell. Your carpets are agitated and scrubbed to loosen the dirt instead of just being soaked with water and soap. This is the latest and best way to clean carpets.
What types of payment do you accept?
Cash, checks and credit cards.
What needs to be done to get ready for cleaning?
Just vacuum. Please remove breakable items from the furniture if you need me to move them.
Do you move furniture?
I can move couches, chairs and tables out of the way if needed. Just ask me when I get to your house. I can’t move beds, dressers, bookcases, entertainment centers and the like.
How long does it take to dry?
In an hour you can walk on it and move furniture back. Wait 2-3 hours before laying down rugs just to make sure there is no residual moisture to start any mildew growth.
How often should the carpets be cleaned?
Once per year for most situations. If you have kids and pets, I would recommend every 6 months.
