How Often Should I Have My Upholstery Cleaned?

It is not always readily apparent when your carpet is in need of cleaning due to the fact that carpet is designed to hide dirt and does so very well.  However, most of us, do make a habit of vacuuming the carpet once or twice a week to remove some of that dirt that has been tracked in or absorbed from air circulation in our homes.  This helps to extend the amount of time between cleanings carpet can go and reduce long term wear on the carpet.  Now what about your upholstery?  Couches, Love seats, chairs, drapes and other upholstery all absorb dirt, and oils off of our clothes, our pets, and the air in our homes.  Your upholstery is very capable of absorbing nearly as much dirt from circulating air in your home as your carpet is, and thus, should be vacuumed just as often as the  carpet is, rarely is this the case though.

According to the American Furniture Manufacturers Association upholstery should not become soiled to the point of noticeable visible change in the color of the fabric.  For most people this will mean having your upholstery cleaned every 18-24 months.  Of course a couch which is used multiple times by multiple people per day, or the dogs favorite chair will absorb more soils and need cleaning more often, and the love seat in your front sitting room which is used twice a year will not need cleaning quite as often.  Our technicians will be more than happy to test pieces of furniture for you to see how much dirt your upholstery is holding onto, what we can remove, and what the visual result will be.  If the piece has spots, spills, or other accidents we can handle those too!  The important thing to remember whether carpet or furniture it is designed to hide the dirt it absorbs, once it becomes a visibly dirty your at boiling point.  Daisy’s professionally trained technicians can meet all of your carpet or upholstery cleaning needs!

How Often Should I Have My Carpets Cleaned?

This is one of our most frequently asked questions, and it is a good one. There is no hard steadfast rule for how often you should have your carpets cleaned. Having your carpet cleaned regularly will protect your carpets color from becoming dull and reduce the amount of wear your carpet sustains thereby extending the life of your carpet.

According to Shaw Floors Inc., one of the largest carpet manufacturers in the United States, the average household should have their carpets cleaned roughly every 12-18 months. I would assume they are basing this on an average family two adults, and two children, so factors like pets and additional traffic can make cleaning more often pertinent and necessary.Minneapolis Carpet Cleaning Resdiential Service

Your carpet is very effective at hiding dust, dirt, and other soils. When your carpet color starts to dull or show soiling it is actually nearly saturated with soils, body oils, dirt and dust or whatever the Twin Cities weather drags in. Having your carpet cleaned before it becomes an eye sore will yield better results and prolong your carpets life. Having your carpet cleaned prolongs its life through removing the soils which, when walked on, grind and scuff your carpet fibers.


Things to consider, include:

  • Whether or not you wear shoes in your home
  • The number of people and pets living in your home
  • Most importantly how often you vacuum.

Two Carpet Cleaners vs One

Posted: January 27, 2012 — About Daisy,Minneapolis Carpet Cleaning

Does Daisy always send a two man crew to clean for you?

As a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning company our steam cleaning system is easily run by one person.  The truck mounted steam cleaning system which we use does most of the work for the crew.  This being said Daisy does often send two man cleaning crews to your home.  We do this in order to allow us to clean your home and do things such as moving furniture and navigating the vacuum hose through your home safely and efficiently.


Some examples of why we may send a one man crew to a job include:

  • If we have empty homes to clean in adjacent cities such as Plymouth and Maple Grove.
  • A job with strictly upholstery to clean.
  • A cleaning job with upholstery and a small amount of carpet.
  • Smaller carpet cleaning jobs.

By doing this it allows us to properly dedicate two cleaners to jobs which:

  • The carpeted area we need to clean is larger.
  • Have more furniture to move in order to clean the carpeted room.
  • Jobs which can be difficult to set up at (i.e. a third floor apartment in Minneapolis).
  • Commercial Cleaning jobs and jobs that may need multiple suites or condos cleaned in the same building.

These guidelines are by no means steadfast; Daisy Carpet and Upholstery cleaning sends two man crews to empty homes, smaller carpet cleaning jobs, and upholstery cleaning jobs every day.  However, we consider these examples when planning the cleaning crews to make the most efficient use of your valuable time and ours, and to be the best Minneapolis carpet cleaner we can be.  Whether you have a small or large carpet cleaning job for us, we’ve got the resources to handle it. Call today for an appointment or fill out our online contact form for same day carpet cleaning in Minneapolis.

Finding a Professional Carpet Cleaning Company in Minnesota

Posted: January 16, 2012 — About Daisy,Carpet Cleaning

We understand that shopping for a professional carpet cleaning service in Minnesota can be tricky and maybe even frustrating.  One tool that we think may help is using the Better Business Bureau. They have two methods to help consumers shop for carpet cleaning:

  1. Over the phone.  The phone number for the Minneapolis and St. Paul area is 651-699-0011.  All you need to do is follow the touch tone directions.
  2. Through their website.  The Minnesota BBB website can be accessed here –

Once you are at their site you will select “Checkout a Business or Charity”.  Then simply type the name of the carpet cleaning company into the search box.  Once you have reached the companies page you will need to sort through which information is important.

  • The first and easiest item is their letter grade rating.  If they have a C, D, or F, move on.
  • Length of time the company has been in business.  If the carpet cleaning business has been around less than a couple of years, I would proceed with extreme caution.
  • How many and what types of complaints do they have.  If a carpet cleaning company has a B rating but has had 30 complaints in the last 36 months, you need to be very wary.

Checkout Daisy Carpet Cleaning’s  BBB report.

Then call 952-432-6999 or email us to have three areas cleaned this month for only $128.95.
