10-Step Carpet Cleaning Process
Step 1: Pre-Inspection – Our Technician will do a walk through inspection with you to identify soiling conditions, carpet construction, and potential permanent stains.
Step 2: Pre-Vacuum – Your carpet is pre-vacuumed with a commercial vacuum to remove bonded, insoluble dry soil.
(If needed) Furniture Moving – Sofas, chairs and tables will be carefully moved. Larger pieces, such as beds and dressers are left in place under our regular pricing structure. Furniture will be protected with disposable blocks and tabs.
Step 3: Pre-Spot – Certain spots are pre-treated for maximum removal.
Step 4: Pre-Spray – Traffic areas are pre-treated with a biodegradable Traffic Lane Treatment.
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 and Rinse – Once the soil has been loosened, our state-of-the-art truck-mounted hot water extraction cleaning process will thoroughly flush the carpet pile. Pressure and heat are regulated to prevent the carpet from being over-wet.
Step 6a: Neutralize – The pH is balanced on every carpet and fabric cleaned. This is one of the most important steps according to the manufacturers of carpet. It is accomplished during the extract & rinse process or a post spray will be applied.
Step 7: Post Spot Treatment – If any spots are not removed during cleaning process, specialty spotting techniques are employed. Note: Potential permanent stains, as identified by technician may not be removed.
Step 8: Post Grooming – The Carpet pile is set in one direction to aid the drying process.
Step 9: Speed Dry – High velocity air movers are placed on the carpet to lessen the drying time.
Step 10: Post Inspection – Our technician will walk through your home with you to point out the cleaning results and make sure that you are completely thrilled with the job.
