Step 1 : Pre-Inspection
This is a very important first step because by inspecting the carpets spots, stains, and traffic patterns. We can determine the best course of action on restoring your carpets and a plan for keeping them both looking good and functioning properly from now on. We will be asking questions like how old the carpet is, when was the last cleaning performed as well as what method was used.
Step 2 : Commercial Pre-Vacuum
Close to 80% of what is in your carpets is loose dry soil. It’s hard to see, but it’s in there and abrading the carpets fibers which causes it to wear prematurely. We do a thorough pre-vacuuming to remove as much of that dry soil as possible. This greatly enhances our overall cleaning.
Step 3 : PreCarpet Cleaning
We apply an agent that breaks down the soil and suspends it away from the carpet fiber to make it easier to extract out.
Step 4 : Pre-spot
Any spot and stains are treated before being thoroughly flushed out.
Step 5: Pre-groom/Agitation
This helps to work the emulsifying solution into the carpet fiber and also helps to loosen the soil.
Step 6 : Soil Extraction and Rinse
Using our very powerful truck mounted cleaning system we rinse and extract the soils and residues from the carpet leaving it residue free and nearly dry.
Step 7 : Neutralizer
We leave no sticky residues behind which only attracts airborne particles and re-soils your carpeting very quickly. This helps to keep your carpet cleaner longer.
Step 8 : Post Spot
Any stains that remain after extraction will get special attention with our arsenal of spot and stain removal agents. While some stains maybe permanent and difficult to guarantee their complete removal we are usually pretty successful in removing many different type of stains. This would be a good time to consider reapplying carpet protector which provides a protective barrier to the fibers and will keep stains from becoming more permanent.
Step 9 : Post Groom
To remove wand marks and footmarks as well as set carpet pile for drying we do a final grooming that stands the carpet fiber up.
Step 10 : Speed Dry
The use of high velocity air movers are used to speed up the drying process. Turning on the air conditioning on hot days, and the heat on cold days will also aid in speeding up the drying.
When your carpets aren’t cleaned on a regular basis a number of problems can arise. You can have a buildup of dirt which can adversely affect how your fibers connect to the base of your carpet, causing them to come loose. You can also develop different types of living creatures that can live in your carpet fibers as well. If you have recently had a flood, over a period of several weeks, mold can start to develop. Carpet mites are also very common, tiny little bugs that can number in the tens of thousands. Finally, you can also have a great deal of pollen and dirt that can become airborne, making it very difficult for people to breathe. For all of these reasons, you should have your carpets cleaned at least every six months. Here’s how you can find the best companies with excellent prices that you can use this week.

When it comes to accidental spills and stains on carpets, nail polishes could be one of the top five most difficult stains to remove. Fortunately, there are ways in which to remove the fingernail polish from carpets quite effectively without ruining the carpet in the process.
Nail Polish Stain Removal
If the accidental nail polish spill is still very wet, tried to blot and soak up as much of the nail polish as possible as quickly as possible. Try not to let the polish dry as it makes it even harder to remove.
1. It’s best to call a professional.
2. Acetone is flammable so use extreme caution.
3. Never pour Acetone directly on the carpet.
Try to find a well hidden spot on the carpet where you can test color fastness of the carpet fibers. Then using a clean white cloth and pure acetone, test the carpet for color fastness. If the acetone does not remove the color, you can then proceed.
Soak the clean white cloth with the acetone and blot gently over the nail polish stain. Once you have most of the nail polish out of the carpet, continued to blot at the stain with acetone and a fresh section of clean cloth every time. If you try to use the same spot on the cloth, you will simply be pushing the nail polish stain back into the carpet fibers.
Continue to blot at the stain until all the nail polish has been dissolved by the acetone and soaked up. If you do not have a pure acetone, you can use a high percentage of rubbing alcohol instead. While this is also effective, the acetone is the best method.
Once you put this stain out, leave the carpet to dry. Usually when the cleaned area dries, the stain can sometimes reappear. If you find that this is the case, you can then use a mixture of bleach free dish-washing liquid and warm water. Make sure the mixture is quite watery. Again taking a clean white cloth, Doctor cloth into the watery mixture and blot the area again. Avoid rubbing as this might spread the nail polish into a much larger stain, making it very difficult to remove. Using a clean cloth, blot the area dry.

Most people are unaware of the importance of carpet. They live with it their whole lives without knowing its full purpose.
Why Does Carpet Exist?
When asked why homes have carpets, the average person will come up with reasons such insulation and better aesthetics. While this is true, there is one other use for carpet in the home – a filter.
Carpet acts as a filter as it soaks up the dirt, dust and bacteria that people and animals track into the home. If carpets are not cleaned properly, this dirt will be released into the air. This compromises indoor air quality and causes health problems such as allergies.
Now, allergens exist in carpet because dust, pet dander and other allergens are brought into the home. The only way to get rid of these allergens is to get carpets cleaned regularly.
How Often Should People Clean Their Carpets
Carpets should be vacuumed once a day. However, since this is impractical, a few times a week should suffice. Professional cleaners should also be brought in once every six months for a deep clean.
Why do People Need to Hire Professional Carpet Cleaners?
When push comes to shove, professionals have more experience and knowledge when it comes to carpet cleaning. They use more powerful and effective cleaning agents and operate state of the art equipment. In short, a professional can do a better job than the average homeowner.
By vacuuming and getting professional cleans regularly, residents will not suffer from common allergies such as dust mites. Those who have had an allergic reaction in the past know how this can help them. With clean carpets they will no longer have to deal with stuffy noses, itchy eyes and the feeling of not being able to breathe properly and/or clearly.
