Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use a portable carpet cleaner?
The convenience of using a portable carpet cleaner is the main reason. On top of that, they clean hard-to-reach places around your home, and can remove deep-down dirt and stains on the go.
Why are carpet cleaners better than a spray or foam?
Carpet cleaners use a mix of warm water, special cleaning solutions, and powerful suction that deeply cleans and removes dirt. Foams and sprays cannot reach these deep down places. Also, carpet cleaners do the dirty work for you.
Are full-size, upright, or portable carpet cleaners better?
Each has their benefits, but it depends on what part of your home needs cleaning. Portable carpet cleaners work best on stairs, area rugs, and upholstery, while full-size upright carpet cleaners are best for large areas and rooms.
What type of vacuum cleaner works best for stairs?
A cordless handheld vacuum is best for stairs, but most modern vacuums are built with an extension hose that can be used to clean stairs.
How often should I wash vacuum cleaner filters?
We recommend that you clean vacuum filters once every month with heavy usage, and every 1-4 months with occasional usage. This will ensure that your vacuum traps dirt and dust and stays clean.
Do I need a HEPA filter?
If you have allergies, the vacuum cleaner you use can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. We recommend that you start using an HEPA filtered vacuum. HEPA stands for (High Efficiency Particulate Air), and is important because it improves air quality, and reduces allergy symptoms.
Do I need a canister or an upright vacuum?
Canister vacuums are usually more versatile and easy to hold. With the right tools, canister vacuum cleaners can provide smoother transitions between different types of flooring. Upright vacuums provide deep cleaning, especially for carpets. The choice between buying a canister versus an upright vacuum cleaner is mostly personal preference.
What is the difference between a turbo brush and power brush?
A turbo brush is air-driven. A power brush is driven by electricity. Tools that are air-driven are usually less powerful on thicker carpet.
How often should I vacuum my home?
Those with allergies should vacuum at least 2 times a week. However, you might want to vacuum more often if you see dust build-up in high-traffic spots, or if you have allergies or pets. In any case, it doesn’t hurt to keep your home as clean as possible.
Is a bagged or bagless vacuum better?
Bagged and bagless vacuums both clean well. A bagless vacuum will save you time, hassle, and money from having to buy extra bags. However, they can be messy to empty, and can be a hassle to keep the filters clean. On the other hand, vacuums with bags keep all of the dirt and debris contained which can make it difficult to retrieve objects that may have been accidentally sucked up.
