What Do I Do With My Furniture?

Are you thinking about having your carpet cleaned in the Dallas area but you are not sure about how to handle all of your furniture? I can help.

I am sure that the thought of moving all of that furniture can be quite overwhelming. The fact is though that you do not need to. Most heavy furniture can be safely cleaned around. With truck mounted steam cleaning systems, the vast majority of the water is extracted from your carpet. This allows us to clean right up to your furniture and leave it in place without the risk of damage to your carpet or your furniture.

Moving heavy items that always remain in the same place is not needed and is an unnecessary risk. If a piece of furniture has always been in the same spot, the most that can be underneath it is a bit of dust. You can simply vacuum this, it does not need to be steam cleaned.

But what about other items like chairs and end tables? We always move these types of items for no additional charge. We simply move the item to the side, clean where it was and then replace it. Styrofoam blocks or plastic pads are then placed underneath the furniture and left in place until it dries.

If you do insist on moving heavier items like bookshelfs, beds, sectionals, etc we ask you to move these items to another area of your home while we clean the carpet. You will then need to allow the carpet to completely dry before replacing them. A moving company could be contacted and would charge you a reasonable hourly rate to have workers move the items for you and then return to replace them.

We have used James for the past three years. He is always on time, professional, and through. We have recommended him to multiple people and will continue to use him in the future.

James just left my house and my carpets look like new! I thought that my carpets were beyond saving. Yesterday I even had my house quoted for new carpet. I called James from sticker shock at the new carpet price. I figured that I would "try" to clean my carpets. I have a $400 home steam cleaner and it wasn't even putting a dent in the spots. My carpets are 8 years old and we have a ton of preschoolers in the house every day along with two dogs. I chose Carlson Carpets because he uses natual products and has a flat fee. I hate it when companies bait me with a good price and then try to tack on a bunch of fees for this spot here and that spot there. It took James a little over an hour and they look new. I feel like he just saved me thousands! Thanks James!

Mr. Carlson has cleaned my carpets 4 times now. When he leaves they look like new. He is the owner and the lead technician. He is very efficient, pleasant and the price is more than reasonable. I would recommend this company to anyone!! Also, Mr. Carlson is the type of person you could go outside to get your mail or to talk to a neighbor and not have to worry about a thing being missing when you return - unlike so many companies, today. Top notch service - top notch results! Also, I wanted to add: I have pets who have accidents and teenage kids in and out of the house. No problem is too big for Carlson!

Very good experience. I scheduled my appointment on their website, got a confirmation, and then everything went as the online system said. The company emailed me the day before to confirm again, and called the day of to give me a 30-minute heads-up. The owner did my job himself and he was very professional.

James called on his way to let me know when he would be there and he arrived promptly. He was very professional and finished the work quickly and efficiently. I called at 8pm and left a message with a question and he called me back within 5 minutes.

I had a great experience using them last week. James called in advance and showed up right on time. As this was my first carpet cleaning, James was patient and accommodating to my requests.
