At BowTie we prefer to move furniture when possible or practical. Homeowners are responsible for handling small belongings, delicate items, and valuable items.

We use the “hot water extraction” method for cleaning. (210°F- 230°F). Cleaning agents and hot water are introduced and simultaneously extracted during the cleaning process. The equipment is parked outside. Cleaning tools and hoses come inside.

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.

Hot water extraction is “steamy”. It is often confused with steam cleaning. Steam cleaning is rare and requires much hotter water which puts your carpet at risk of damage and can also set in stubborn stains.

Yes, carpets should be vacuumed to maximize the effectiveness of our deep carpet cleaning process. We can, upon request, pre-vacuum for you.

Typical drying time is 8 - 24 hours depending on humidity and ventilation. When humidity is high, using fans can accelerate drying time.

Our deep carpet cleaning process requires approximately 25-minutes per room when empty. As room contents increase, so does the time need to clean around them.

While vinegar can be considered a 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.
