Our Process

Step 1: Pre-Inspection
A technician will walk through your home with you to visually inspect your carpet, identify potential permanent stains,  identify your concerns and give you an evaluation of expected results.

Step 2: Home Protection
The technician will protect the surfaces in your home for the duration of the carpet cleaning. Hardwood floors and stairs will  be protected by dropclothes and corners of walls will be protected by corner guards. This allows our technician to work safely in your home without the hoses damaging your surfaces.

Step 3: Furniture Moving
Our standard fee includes moving sofas, chairs, tables and other small items. Beds, dressers and heavier pieces cost extra to move.  Your technician can quote the exact cost to move any heavier pieces of furniture.

Step 4: Pre-Spray
A pre-conditioning agent is applied to emulsify or break down the soil throughout the carpeting.

Step 5: Pre-Spot
Difficult spots on the carpet are pre-treated with special products uniquely designed to increase the chances of removal.

Step 6: Soil Extraction and Rinse with Neutralizer
The carpet is then thoroughly rinsed with a powerful extraction cleaning system without over-wetting the carpet or leaving sticky residue behind. Every carpet we clean has a neutralizer applied so that it is pH-balanced. This will also leave your carpet feeling soft and fresh.

Step 7: Post-Spot Treatment
Any spots or stains remaining will get extra treatment with one of our many specialty spotting procedures.

Step 8: Post-Cleaning Inspection
The 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.

How long should we wait to have our carpets cleaned?

Imagine: you have a newborn baby, a roaming toddler with a sippy cup full of red juice, or you’re prone for asthma or allergies; perhaps you’re the proud owner of a new puppy or kitten, or maybe you’ve just given up trying to get your kids to take their shoes off at the door.

Obviously, each situation is unique. Your carpets can act as an air filter, capturing dust, dirt, bacteria, pollen and dust mites, as well as their waste and the bacteria that feed on them. Each household could require a different answer to the question of how often to have the carpet cleaned, however, most carpeting manufacturers recommend a professional cleaning every 6 to 18 months.

We are committed to providing affordable, high-quality carpet cleaning solutions for your home or business, and our technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Education is key – and this is why we are the Smart Choice.
