We use hot water extraction, sometimes referred to as "steam cleaning". In this method, a hot cleaning solution is sprayed under pressure onto the carpet and is immediately extracted with a vacuum source. The dirty solution is collected in a recovery tank and is usually poured into the sanitary waste system. The advantage of this process is that it has the ability to flush out large amounts of soil and contaminants in carpet. It is the most preferred method by all of the major fiber producers such as DuPont, Monsanto and Allied Signal, as well as the carpet manufacturers like Shaw, Mohawk, World and Queen. Because this method removes more contaminants than the other carpet cleaning methods, hot water extraction is favored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is the preferred method of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Most higher quality carpets that have extended appearance and texture retention warranties require this type of cleaning every 12-18 months in order to retain the warranty coverage.
All carpet and upholstery are deeply cleaned with high-pressure steam extraction truck mount units. Areas are pre-treated for spots and stains prior to cleaning with our own safe and eco-friendly chemicals. All chemicals are extracted from the areas cleaned and then vacuumed for a second time to increase drying time. Most area rugs are cleaned and dried at our facility and can be picked up and delivered or the customer can drop them off. The same cleaning process is used but we also hang the rugs on rafters with air blowers for several days to get the rugs completely dry.
We offer a Moth Protection and DuPont Teflon Protection on carpet, rugs, and upholstery to increase the life of your investment.
