Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Should I Get My Carpets Cleaned?
Frequently used carpet should be professionally cleaned by a qualified technician at least annually – perhaps a little longer interval for infrequently used carpet and even sooner for carpet in homes occupied by respiratory sensitive or allergic persons; or in homes with indoor pets.
What is the Normal Drying Time After Carpets Have Been Cleaned?
We recommend turning on all ceiling fans and making sure your central air is turned on for proper ventilation throughout your home/business. Typical drying times may range from 6-8 hours depending on air circulation. Try to limit foot traffic on your freshly cleaned carpets and it is recommended that pets and children stay off of the carpet until it is completely dry. Be sure to use caution when walking from freshly cleaned carpet onto hard surface floors as it may be very slippery.
How Long Will the Service Take?
2 rooms take about 1 hour from arrival to departure. Time can be reduced as more rooms/areas are added to the service.
Can Stains Be Removed?
The quick answer, not all “stains” can be removed. It really depends a lot on what the spot or “stain” is, how long it’s been there, and what type of treatments have already been used on the spot. Many times a homeowner or DIY cleaner can set the spot into a permanent stain by treating it with the wrong chemistry and/or methods.

Our extensive training and considerable experience allow us to try every possible solution. We ask a lot of questions, thoroughly inspect and test as necessary. Give us a call. We can give you some expectations based on some Q&A over the phone.

What Method of Carpet Cleaning Does AmeriClean Use?
Carpet: 99% of the carpets we clean are cleaned with our self-contained truck-mounted units. We purchase top of the line equipment and we keep it maintained and clean like no other.

These truck-mounted units are the most powerful on the market with both heat and extraction (suction). The method is referred to as the Hot Water Extraction Method. Otherwise known as “steam cleaning.” It’s actually using pressurized hot water ranging from 180 degrees F – 220 degrees F. The steam often seen is not what’s cleaning the carpet, upholstery or tile, it’s simply the steam from the hot water.

Does AmeriClean Only Clean Carpets in Homes, or Do They Also Clean Carpets in Businesses?
We clean carpet, upholstery, and drapery no matter where it is. Commercial or residential. Any size. Any place. Our core target market is Hagerstown and the surrounding 40 mile radius. Some exceptions may apply.

We’ve cleaned Santa’s chair at the mall, a giant fabric covered Easter Bunny, rugs that are over 100 years old and so much more.

The carpets, rugs, upholstery and hard surface floors like tile, vinyl and hardwood are what we study. These are what we are passionate about because these are the things we live on. Our families walk, crawl, kneel, play, roll, sit, sleep and binge on the textiles that we consider “Our Specialties.”

Does "ScotchGard" or Fiber Protector Really Work?
Even though your carpet or furniture came with some sort of stain resistant properties, this stain resistance wears off over time. It’s recommended that a Fiber Protector be re-applied at each professional cleaning for the following benefits.

  • More thorough vacuuming with fewer passes.
  • Easier cleanup of spills, dust, and dirt.
  • Better cleaning the next time your carpet is professionally cleaned.

Fiber Protector is meant to enhance your maintenance cleaning and extend the life of your carpet and upholstery. We use it in our own homes, businesses and automobiles.
