There are several acceptable methods for professionally cleaning wall to wall carpets. Steam cleaning, also called hot water extraction, is by far the most common. Dry cleaning, encapsulation, bonnet cleaning, and shampooing are other examples. Most carpet manufacturers recommend steam cleaning because it is more thorough and superior at removing embedded soil, environmental contaminants, oiled based stains, blood stains, vomit stains and many others. We generally use steam cleaning. Although we follow the industry recommendation of cleaning carpets annually, each household is different. Pets, children, and heavy traffic cause carpet cleaning needs to vary. Carpet replacement will be reduced if they’re cleaned and maintained regularly.
Vacuuming carpets at least once per week is essential to avoiding premature damage to carpet fibers by removing abrasive dirt or sand particles. Tar and other oily substances tracked in from garages or recently sealed driveways cause stains to bond with carpet fibers more easily. This simple procedure is the most important in extending the life of all carpets.
We inspect the carpets for high traffic surface wear, color loss, and other factors so that we can explain what needs to be done and how to properly maintain things.
We move most furniture so that the carpet is thoroughly cleaned, and use protectors under furniture legs and edges. We have special tools to reach under beds if they can’t be moved. We focus on high traffic areas, discoloration along the perimeters of the carpet and anything else that requires special attention. Our objective is to give the customer the best possible cleaning.
We only use high quality cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and have a proven track record of effectiveness and reliability. Our carpet cleaning agents are biodegradable, non-toxic and safe for your family and pets. Our cleaning agents leave your carpets smelling fresh.
When necessary, we use specialized cleaning agents to remove difficult stains such as water based paints, pet yellowing, and a variety of spills that can cause damage and require more advanced cleaning techniques. These types of cleaning agents are non-toxic and rinsed out thoroughly which is important so that no residues remain.
Most cleaning agents are also designed to disinfect and eliminate odors. There are situations where specialized disinfectants and deodorizers are necessary to treat odors caused by unusual dampness, mildew, pets and other unique situations. These products are highly beneficial for these specific purposes but usually unnecessary otherwise.
You’ll find our services to be high quality and a good value. We’re always happy to answer questions or provide advice.
