Your 12-Step Carpet Cleaning Experience


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 noting carpet construction and soiling conditions. He will also advise you of any possible permanent staining.

STEP 2 — Commercial prevacuum--optional step at .10 per square foot

Your carpet will be thoroughly vacuumed with a special Turbine Vacuum System to remove bonded dry soil. Dry soil is removed by a thorough vacuuming. Removing dry soil is one of the most important steps in cleaning.

STEP 3 — Furniture Moving

Sofas, chairs and tables will be carefully moved. Larger pieces, beds and dressers are left in place under our regular pricing structure. Furniture will be protected with disposable blocks and tabs.

STEP 4 — Pre-spray & Pre-spot

Traffic areas and spots are pretreated for more effective soil and spot removal.

STEP 5 — 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.

STEP 6 — Extract & Rinse With Rotary Extraction

Your carpet is of course cleaned with a truck mounted steam machine. But here's what even better...Instead of a standard carpet cleanign wand, we clean your carpet with a rotary extractor called the RX-20 (see picture right). This system flushes your carpet with 180 degree water and gently agitates all sides of the carpet fiber. Most cleaners use a standard cleaning wand which has no agitation. Our RX-20 rotary process beats a cleaning wand hands down.

STEP 7 — Neutralize

Every carpet that we clean is pH balanced so that there is no sticky residue left behind. This treatment is used as a rinse or applied after the rinse depending on soiling condition. Improving air quality by removing pollens, dust mites, etc.

STEP 8 — 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 9 — Dry Bonnet

Some carpets benefit from a dry bonnet process. Ask your technician whether he advises this process or not. Dry bonnet assists in faster drying and prevents wicking on some carpets. This step is only for Berber and commercial loop carpets only.

STEP 10 — Speed Dry--optional step at .10 per square foot

High velocity air movers are placed on the carpet to speed dry carpet.

STEP 11 — Post Grooming

The carpet pile is set in one direction for faster drying and visual appeal.
