Professional Carpet & Area Rug Cleaning 

Is There Any Reason, Why you shouldn't have the cleanest carpet in town ?
Carpeting is easy on your feet, insulates your home and captures the pollutants in your home, hiding "dirt". By the time your carpets look dirty, they’re hiding as much dirt as it takes to grow a plant! Besides removing dirt, our carpet cleaning procedures will remove stains, chemicals, smoke, bacteria, fungus, pollens, dust mites, fleas and other bio-pollutants. So, if anyone living has allergies or breathing complications, there will be less allergens to contend with, they will feel better and sleep better after professional carpet cleaning and area rug cleaning is done.

 

What Sets Me Apart From Other Cleaners?

Furniture we actually move furniture. when I say basic and light furniture, I mean it. we even move it with our economy packages and when we don't I am discounting the cleaning so you aren't paying for the areas underneath the furniture we aren't moving.
  1. In Step one we vacuum, other cleaners don't until their "Gold, Platinum, Premium, or Ultimate" packages, if that.
  2. In step four we employ a machine that has two counter rotating cylindrical brushes that;
    *Work in the Pre-Sprays,
    *Standing Up the Matted Fibers,
    *and Pre-Cleaning the Carpeting Prior to the Extraction Process

THUS, ALLOWING THE EXTRACTION PROCESS TO JUST RINSE THE SOILING OUT OF THE CARPETING WITH A NEUTRALIZING RINSE ALL AT ONCE reducing the need for over wetting the carpets!

 

This Puts to Rest the Fear Mongering of:
 
  1. Those "Dry Cleaning" companies that try to scare you out of the Deep Cleaning Extraction Service that you Want, Deserve, and that keeps your warranty in tack! My Method Provides a Quick Drying Deep Cleaning!
  2. Those "Rotovac Guys" that want you to think the more wet passes is the only way to get a carpet clean and that companies that use a wand leave your carpets streaky and soiled! The Rotovac is a good tool, the RX20 is a better tool, but it's only one of many tools that should be used when performing a cleaning service! The key is, with the proper pre-conditioning, I rarely need either in a house!
 
The RX20 Rotary Extraction Tool
Rotary Extraction provides 600 Cleaning and Dry strokes per minute to Rinse Carpeting after Proper Pre-conditioning helps Provide the Most Thorough Cleaning Ever!

 

How Will I Get You The Best Results?

First you and I will evaluate your carpet’s needs, because every Carpet must be treated a differently. We will then decide what will be the best approach to fix your concerns and why! Best of all you will know up front what we can and can’t do! Then you will decide (without pressure) how we should proceed. This way there are no surprises!

My Basic Service incorporates the proper mix of procedures and products, leaving your carpets free of harmful or soil attracting residues! In a nutshell my 8 step process is what is specified in the I.I.C.R.C. Cleaning Standard; proper vacuuming (if not already done so), Pre-spotting, Pre-conditioning, Agitation/ Mechanically Brushing, Spotting, Extraction, Post Cleaning Spotting, and Finally Application of Fabric Protector (not part of the basic service), and grooming the carpeting. All of these steps ensure a proper cleaning that will leave your carpeting feeling and looking great without any soil attracting residues!

From Here, I can customize the service package you choose to provide the solutions to your cleaning problems, while providing the Level of Service suited to your needs and desires!

The Most Common add-ons that I run across are;

Specialty Spotting and Stains

PLEASE NOTE, due to the nature of these spots and stains, I can't guarantee their complete removal!

  • Pet Stains & Odor Control pricing varies from
    • One time accidents that may cost from $7.50 to $10.00 for topical spot treatments
    • Application of a Topical Enzyme Treatment for a broad based Urine contamination problem ment to control the odor but not necessarily remove it completely will add an additional $. 25/ sf to the cost of the cleaning. Other times, we may determine that a Peroxoide based Product will be better suited becuase it will aid in the removal f visible pet stains as well.
    • Sub-surface Treatments vary from $20.00 to $35.00 for an area that is approximately One Square Foot to a Foot and a Half and an additional $15.00 to $20.00 for each additional foot. Additional areas will be discounted.
    • Extreme cases that call for detaching the carpet to remove the padding and treat the carpet’s backing and sub-floor require a full inspection prior to pricing

  • Dye Stains resulting from either organic or synthetic dyes require special treatments, with multiple steps required to effectively treat them. Costs start at $25.00 for a stain 4’ to 6”s in diameter, ask for more details when you call.
  • Other Stains That are less common but still require extra work include (but are not limited to); Coffee, Gum, Make-up, Paint, Syrup, and Tar. In moderation, there is no extra charge, but larger or multiple spots will require an add on charge.
  • Deeply rooted spots that go all the way down to the bottom of the carpet fiber and possibly into the pad must be treated with the sub-surface method. This procedure is more product and time consuming and thus must be charged for. The cost is on an individual basis usually from $10 to $15.

 

Filtration Stains

These are those fuzzy dirt marks and streaks that appear along the edges of the walls and require Special Products and Tools to properly attempt their removal. Their severity vary from a light gray to black, they may only be thin streak or an inch out from the wall, and sometimes can go all the way down to the backing of the carpet! The cost to work on them can vary from 75¢ to $1.25 a linear foot with a $50.00 minimum.

Reality Check
(Things to Keep in Mind!)

Spot & Stain Removal

Spots are usually the result of a spill that has attracted soils from the bottom of our feet to stick to them. With proper preconditioning, most soils and spots disappear from sight permanently. However, some spots may re-appear if the original cause wasn't totally removed or cleaning residues were left behind, if that is the case; I’You will be back to treat them, otherwise, they may be permanent.!

Some spots are so deeply rooted that they require subsurface treatment for removal, this procedure is more intense and time consuming than normal spotting procedures but, unfortunately, it’s not always 100% successful.

Stains resulting from a color transfer from food coloring, dye pigments, from furnishings or other items, or from some other spill, on the other hand require more advanced treatments. Sometimes it's as simple as a simple pre-treatment and sometimes it's a multi-step procedure. Sorry to say it, even by following the proper procedures, not all stains can be removed from your carpet!

I'm not trying to make excuses, but after all, doctors only practice medicine and we all know the amount of education and training that they have undergone.

 

Filtration Stains

You may have notice that there are dark streaks along the edges of your walls, these are commonly known as filtration stains and can be quite troublesome. Caused by air flowing from between the walls and floor, the carpeting acts as a filter absorbing these fine particles . We first apply a specially formulated pre-spray, followed by brushing the soils and then extracting the edges with a special tool. Please note, however, that due to the minute nature of these particles, they may become to embedded in the carpet's fabric to remove completely; further, there are times when the soiling is all the way down to the backing. Please remember, this is an add on service as mentioned above, even if you pay for it, we cannot always remove all the soiling!

Furniture Indentations

You may have notice that after furniture has sat in one place for a prolonged period of time it leaves those Indentations that are such  an eyesore. Especially if you are getting new furnishings or are trying to sell the house. WE can't remove the entire indentation, but most of the damage will come out!

 

Fabric Protector

You can count on Maxim Advanced Fabric Protector to keep your carpeting and fabrics clean up to three times longer than similar untreated carpeting. It resists spills, soils, and even dye stains after frequent vacuuming and traffic. Maintenance applications of Maxim Advanced will keep your carpet’s warranty intact.

In addition for those who insist of specific products, I also Stock Maxim Advanced Upholstery Fabric Protector as well as the old, Standard ScotchGard™, as Well as Encapuguard Green which meets the EPA's "built for the Environment Program' guidelines.

My Guarantee: Customers that purchase Maxim Advanced or ScotchGard receive a 6 month guarantee against permanent spots and stains not caused by; acid dyes, bleaches, dispersion dyes, pet stains, vomit, and products that may have faded the color from the carpet altogether! If I can't get the spot out, I will refund the cost of the Maxim Advanced for that entire room! Some samples are:
  • Cool-aid, Red Wine, Mustard, Coffee, ETC. …
  • Paint and Make-Up Stains with Deep Saturation into Fibers
  • Furniture Stains
These types of stains may become permanent, so please don’t do anything, leave it to a professional, without knowing it making even more difficult to remove, or you may permanently set the stain. That being said, even with proper treatment, not all stains will respond, but still, leave it to a pro.

Of Course, I will be glad to discuss these options and problems over the phone or come to your home during a free No Obligation Carpet Audit!
