Frequently Asked Questions

I'd like to clean my carpets and air ducts. Which should I clean first? Can you clean both at the same time? And how long would it take?

Yes, UCM Carpet Cleaning Burke can definitely clean your carpets and your air ducts at the same time, however, that requires for you to schedule both carpet cleaning and air duct cleaning at the same time you make your appointment. If it's done at the same time, the best way to normally go about it is to start with the air ducts, and after this heavy duty process of eliminating the dust deposit and various allergens from your air ducts, and only afterwards to follow up with the carpet cleaning service, so that we make sure to get as much dust and dirt as possible out of your home. For a standard 1000-1500 square foot home, such a service will take anywhere between 2 and 3 hours.


I have pets and young children. Are your cleaning products safe to be used around them?

Absolutely. We insist on using only Green cleaning products, which are non-toxic, Eco-Friendly cleaning products. Those are completely safe for babies, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and pets to be around at all times. UCM Carpet Cleaning Burke never compromises when it comes to the well being of our customers and the environment.

What is the difference between the on-site rug service and the off-site service?

Whether you prefer to have your rug cleaned at home or you would love to send it out and returned to you clean, our professional rug cleaning service will give you excellent cleaning results. The main difference is that for some extremely delicate rugs, we feel that the best care can be given off-site. There are also times when the cleaning can't be performed at your location - if all you have is hardwood, we won't clean the rug there because the moisture could cause serious damage to your floors. We will gladly take your rug and deliver it back to you cleaned, with no delivery fee. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, and we'll make sure your rug is cleaned to your complete satisfaction.

What should I do if I think I have a mold problem?

Mold is an incredibly serious issue that can cause significant health problems, so if you believe you may have a mold problem in your home, it's essential to take the necessary steps to have it addressed. The first step is to get a mold inspection and mold testing performed by a mold remediation professional. This allows them to accurately identify and locate the mold, measure the extent of the contamination, and provide an understanding of any potential health risks associated with exposure. With mold inspection and mold testing results in hand, you can then proceed with creating a plan for appropriate remediation measures that should be taken.

What are the health effects of mold exposure?

Exposure to mold is a serious health concern and should not be taken lightly. Inhaling mold spores can cause allergic reactions ranging from mild symptoms such as sneezing and coughing, to more severe conditions such as mucus production and asthma. Even in small amounts, mold exposure can lead to headaches and other respiratory illnesses.

To protect your family's health, mold removal should be done immediately if you notice indications of mold growing in your home or office. Get rid of mold as quickly as possible by taking action to prevent it from growing further; this includes areas where mold growth has already started comprising wet carpets, foliage close to the building among other places.
