FAQS

I’ve heard that cleaning my carpet makes it soil ?
The problem results from residues being left in the carpet which attract dirt. The modern methods we use rinse virtually all of the cleaning agents out of the carpet so it will not attract dirt.

How often should you clean your carpets?
The obvious answer to that question is whenever they are dirty. However, some carpets may not look dirty be cause of light use. We recommend that to maintain the life and look of your carpet that you clean them at least twice a year. However, if your carpets need to be cleaned more often than that due to heavy traffic, spots or other spills then clean them as needed.

How long will it take for my carpet to dry?
On average, it will take approximately 20 minutes per room. This time can vary greatly depending on the amount of furniture to be moved, how soiled the carpet is, and any necessary spot removal treatments.

How long do I have to wait to let my children or pets walk on the carpet?
The carpet may be walked on with clean feet or indoor shoes immediately after cleaning; however, we recommend limiting activity on the carpet to this foot traffic until it is completely dry.

Do I need to move my furniture before the crew arrives?
We are professionally trained to move your furniture, and return it to its rightful place when cleaning is completed. We do suggest you remove items off of your furniture like electronics, plants, lamps, and knick-knacks. We will move most furniture that can be safely moved by a two-man crew. There are several items we will not move, including: pianos, electronics, china cabinets, waterbeds, some large beds, dressers with mirrors, pool tables, etc

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
