Our 10 Step Residential Carpet Cleaning Process
We will inspect and measure the areas to be cleaned taking note of your areas of concern and any items that may need special attention, such as stains, repairs, etc.
Studies by the carpet cleaning industry show that 79% of the soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is the most important step in the cleaning process.
- PRE-CONDITION :
All carpeted areas to be cleaned will be pre-sprayed with a pre-conditioner using products approved by the Carpet And Rug Institute, (www.carpet-rug.org). This solution will loosen the soils that are binding to the carpet fibers.
- SPOT REMOVAL:
Many spots are removed through the normal cleaning process, however some spots need special attention.
- MOVE FURNITURE:
Most furniture will be moved. (Examples of items that are not moveable are China cabinets, bookcases, entertainment centers, pianos, large dressers, beds with bookcase headboards or center support or other fragile items).
- CLEANING OF EACH AREA:
Each area is rinsed free of soil and detergent by hot water extraction (commonly known by consumers as ‘steam cleaning’) utilizing Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval equipment and cleaning solutions.
- RESETTING FURNITURE:
Furniture is put back into place. Furniture legs are tabbed or blocked to protect from moist flooring.
- GROOMING CLEANED CARPETS:
Grooming promotes drying and improves the appearance of your carpet.
*** Stain protector, if purchased, will be applied at this time.
As each area is completed a high speed air mover will be placed in the area to highly expedite the drying process. Average dry time is about 3 hours.
- POST INSPECTION:
The results of the job will be reviewed with the client. Any remaining issues will be addressed at this time.
