Here at Feet Up Carpet Cleaning of Alexandria, our specialists recommend professional carpet cleaning every 12 to 18 months. With the growing concern of indoor air quality these days, newer carpets and rugs often have professional cleaning mentioned in the warranty.

For example, if you happen to have kids or pets around the house, professional carpet cleaning may be needed every 6 to 8 months.

Carpet Cleaning Methods in Alexandria, VA

Our professionals in Alexandria, VA, often use more than one way to clean carpets to meet the needs of different types of carpets.

Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning)

With this method, cleaning agents and hot water are pushed deep into the carpet fibers at high pressure, and then the fibers and dirt are pulled out. It works well for deep cleaning, and carpet makers often suggest it.


Foam is used in this method to enclose and crystallize dirt particles, which are then swept up. It's an eco-friendly method that doesn't need much water and dries fast.

Carpet Shampooing

This method, which used to be very common, makes foam with detergents that pick up dirt. But it's less popular now because it takes longer to dry and might leave residue on the carpet.

  6. Drying: Once we've repeated the cleaning process, we move on to drying, ensuring that no moisture is left which could promote microbial growth.
  7. Post-Inspection: Our diligence doesn't end with the cleaning process. We perform a post-inspection to triple-check the cleanliness of the area.
