How long has Primo Steamo been in business?

We started Primo Steamo in 2016, however my carpet cleaning experience goes all the way back to the mid 1980's when I owned a carpet cleaning company in Las Vegas, NV called Rugs to Riches.

Does Primo Steamo offer free estimates?

Yes we do.  While we can give you our basic pricing guidelines over the phone, it is difficult to give a firm price without actually seeing what work has to be done.  Our way around this is to come to your home, inspect what you need cleaned and give you a firm bid in person.  This is a free, no obligation service that we gladly offer.   

Does Primo Steamo use truck mounted equipment?

Yes, we use powerful truck mounted equipment because sometimes you just need horsepower!  We even have our own soft water unit in the van so we are rinsing your carpet with soft water.  

Does Primo Steamo use harsh chemicals to clean the carpet?

We made the decision when we started in 2016 that we would not use the harsh chemicals to clean carpet.  Some of these chemicals are so harsh, they can actually damage the carpet.  We use industry standard products and even have all natural products for use in situations where the customer is sensitive to cleaners.  

How long does it usually take for the carpet to dry?

Because we scrub the carpet prior to rinsing, we don't use as much steam (water) to rinse the carpet as many of our competitors.  Therefore, the carpets we clean generally dry in 4-5 hours, depending upon temperature/humidity conditions.  If you need your carpet dry quickly, we are more than happy to leave our air movers with you.  These air movers will dry a 6-foot diameter area in 20-30 minutes.  We offer this service to you at no cost.

What type of payments does Primo Steamo accept?

We accept all credit/debit cards as well as cash.  Payment will be processed by our technician when he has completed the job and the customer is pleased with the results.
