Professional Carpet Cleaning In South CarolinaWhitehall Carpet Cleaners
When was the last time you cleaned your carpet?
If you don’t remember, then it’s probably been too long. A dirty carpet doesn’t just look unattractive – it can be a potential haven for bacteria that can directly impact the health of everyone in the home. Carpet cleaning isn’t always easy, and sometimes you need to call in the professionals. That would be us!When it comes to dirty carpets in Columbia SC, Whitehall Carpet Cleaning brings in the big guns to home carpets, commercial carpets, and any flooring. If you see something on your floor that you don’t like, we can take care of it.
Why You Should Never Wait On A Dirty Carpet
Dirty carpets are unpleasant: it’s a breeding ground for tons of disturbing things that can damage the carpet itself and the surrounding area. Mold, bacteria, dust mites, and mildew are just a few of the nasties that call dirty carpets home.
Sometimes a home cleaning doesn’t do the trick; vacuuming and brushing are excellent, but standard cleaning methods can only go so far. It’s a good idea to schedule a deep cleaning that only a pro can provide.
And when you get a stain that’s too tough to remove or too big to deal with on your own? You’ll need a little more cleaning power than your usual steam carpet cleaner. We don’t just clean the spots you missed, but we do it in a way that makes sure your carpet lasts longer.

How Our Carpet Cleaning Works
But how do our professional cleanings work? Well, it’s a mixture of the best tech that carpet cleaning has to offer, our own tried and tested process of getting stains out of the carpet, and solutions recommended by carpet manufacturers themselves.
We can divide our carpet cleaning into three steps:
- Surface: The usual stuff. We give your carpet a thorough once-over, getting all the bigger bits and more stubborn dust mites out of the way. Besides giving your carpet a good dusting, we also take care of the debris, pollen, and mold. Then we’ll prep the rug for the next step.
- Wet: Here’s where we go deep into the cleaning process – right up to the carpet fibers. This step covers applying carpet solutions, hot water extractions (highly recommended if you want to keep your carpet’s warranty), and other chemical treatments. Then we rinse it all off and move to the final step.
- Dry: Finally, we make sure that your carpet doesn’t stay wet. We steam and pick up the excess water from cleaning and apply carpet deodorizer if needed. We’ll then give it one last run-through to check if we’ve missed anything, and there you have it: a clean, fresh carpet that’s as good as new.
The Whitehall guarantee is a carpet cleaning process that effectively removes dirt, treats odor, and cleans to the very base of your carpet. It’s a formula we’ve used for years for our customers in South Carolina, combining the best of various carpet cleaning techniques for the ideal clean.
How Long Will It Take For My Carpets To Dry?
It usually takes carpets 4-6 hours to dry completely, but you can speed up this process by turning on the AC or the ceiling fan. The treatments also affect how long it takes: if you’ve requested additional pet treatments or other cleaning solutions, it may take more time for them to settle into the carpet.
Our drying process already speeds up the time needed for your carpets to dry, and our low-moisture encapsulation cleaning uses as little water as possible in the wet cleaning stage. We also take into account ambient humidity in drying your carpets, so we do the entire process in record time.
Can I Walk On My Carpet After It’s Been Cleaned?
Definitely! But we recommend that you wait for it to dry out completely. Carpets can be very slippery when wet – and sometimes treatments need time to settle fully. We’ll usually give you the estimate when we’re done with the entire process, and you can always ask us about the right time to put your feet back on the carpet.
Can You Treat Pet Stains And Odor?
Pet stains and odor are the two most common reasons we’re called in, so yes! If you’re keeping a family of fur babies in the house or water damage has made your carpet smell a little funky, we can take of that. But, if you want to try your hand at getting rid of some smaller stains, we have some tips for you:
- Start from the outside going in. This prevents the stain from spreading out any farther than it already has to.
- Soak, THEN rinse. It’s ideal to get as much fluid soaked up before you apply any cleaning solution.
- Blot, not scrub. Scrubbing risks spreading the stain farther out, so blotting is your best method for cleaning the stain and soaking it up.
We personally recommend using our cleaner: the AVENGE, which is specially formulated to get stains and odor out of your carpet without damaging it. Good carpet cleaning solutions are hard to find: we’ve removed a lot of lousy floor cleaners in our time, and they can be quite pricey. So always do your research if you want to take on smaller stains on your own!
How Often Should I Get My Carpets Cleaned?
You always want to get your carpet cleaned when the seasons are turning because that’s when most temperature shifts can affect your carpet. Some carpet warranties also specify how often you should get your carpets treated, so always check with the manufacturer. You’ll want to get your carpet cleaned every 6 or 11 months, ideally before spring and fall.
But if you’ve made a huge mess – wine, paint, water damage or some other substance – then call us! A dirty spot on your carpet can spread faster than you’d think it would. Much better to get ahead of the problem, right?

What Can You Do For Your Carpet
Here are the top three things you can do to make sure that your carpet is always in good shape.
Clean regularly: We can’t stress this enough – regular cleaning means less dirt over time, which means a spotless carpet. Make a habit of vacuuming, and your rug can last twice as long.
Only use safe, non-toxic cleaners: Apart from dirt building up, incompatible carpet cleaners are the bane of all carpets. As much as possible, use non-harmful solutions on your carpet. We recommend misting your carpet with 2-4 drops of essential oil and ½ cups baking soda in a spray bottle – it does wonders for odors.
Never wait on a stain: Even if you have a regular vacuuming schedule, always clean new stains immediately. This goes double for pets and food spills, which are the two most common things that can spiral out of control quickly if left unattended.
