Vacuum your carpet often – once or twice a week as least. Vacuuming removes the abrasive soil that can cut and slice the fiber causing premature wear. Much of this soil is not visible to the eye. Vacuum before the carpet looks soiled. Remove any loose particles such as food, leaves, pieces of crayon, bugs, etc., as these items can cause a spot on the carpet.
Professional Carpet Cleaning Services
As a general rule, carpet cleaning by a professional, certified firm should take place at least once per year. For extremely heavy traffic areas, cleaning may be required more often. Proper, professional cleaning will not leave a sticky residue behind and can be done as many times per year as needed. Many stain resist warranties require a professional carpet steam cleaning every two years. Professional cleaning removes the damaging soil in traffic areas that vacuuming has not been able to remove.
STEP 1: Pre-Inspection
Every great carpet cleaning experience starts with a proper pre-inspection. Our service technician will inspect your particular areas of concern, as well as note carpet construction and soiling conditions. He will also advise you of any possible permanent staining.
Step 2: Commercial Pre-vacuum
Up to 79 percent of soil found in carpet is dry insoluble soil. Dry soil is removed by a thorough vacuuming. Removing dry soil is one of the most important steps in cleaning. We offer 10 percent off your carpet cleaning price if the carpet is vacuumed within 12 to 24 hours prior to our arrival to your home or office.
STEP 3: Furniture Moving
We offer an additional 10 percent off your carpet cleaning price if we do not move any furniture during the cleaning (we either clean around the furniture or the pieces are moved prior to our arrival).
STEP 4: Pre-Spray
Traffic areas and all carpet to be cleaned are pre-treated for more effective soil removal. Pre-spraying and allowing our cleansers to dwell a few minutes before cleaning, acts like the ‘soak’ cycle of your laundry machine.
STEP 5: Pre-Spot
Each spot is pretreated according to type of spot and color for the most effective spot removal and overall more uniform appearance.
STEP 6: Pre-Groom
Your carpet will be pre-groomed with a carpet groomer or rotary cleaning machine (depending on soil level) to further loosen traffic area soil. This is much like the ‘agitation’ cycle of your laundry machine.
STEP 7: Extract
Our high powered truck mount cleaning system will extract and vacuum all soils and cleaning agents from the carpet, including sands and soil too heavy or embedded for a vacuum to suck up. This is much like your machine’s ‘spin’ cycle.
STEP 8: Rinse
Once the soil has been removed, our state-of-the-art truck-mounted hot water extraction process will thoroughly flush the carpet pile. Pressure and heat are regulated so that carpet is not over-wet. We clean with water temperature between 180 °F – 190 °F.
STEP 9: Post-Spot Treatment
If any spots are not removed during the cleaning process, specialty spotting techniques are employed. Note: Permanent stains identified by our service technician may not be removed.
STEP 10: Post Grooming
The carpet pile is set in one direction for faster drying and visual appeal.
