Most of our clients get their carpets cleaned Spring & Fall (Every six months) This can be slightly more or less depending on the amount of occupants in the home, pets, children, and sensitivity to allergens and contaminants in your carpet from your lifestyle.
Regularly maintained carpet lasts longer, and is just healthier and more pleasant. Less used rooms such as guest rooms can be done little or yearly, but will still accumulate airborne contaminates.
We use a three step process to get your carpet as clean as possible. First step is to pretreat all areas to loosen all the spots and soils that are in your carpet. By pretreating your carpet we are able to use less cleaning solutions to clean your carpet This helps to lessen any residue left in the carpet. Second after a 20-60 minute pretreatment time, we rinse your carpet thoroughly . Third step is to extract making several dry passes to lift the water and soils out of the carpet.
Soap residue is by far the biggest problem we run into. Heavily soiled carpets are often caused from inadequate rinsing . Residue problems, cause PH problems in the carpet which over time can damage the color of the fiber. Many of the over the counter spot cleaning products do damage over a period of time. We have had a lot of success in correcting these issues. The photo above is a great example of residue problems. The right side has not been rinsed. The left side has been cleaned by water only correcting the problem.
