(Frequently Asked Questions)
What method do you use?
Our company is experienced in all 5 methods of carpet and fine-fabrics cleaning. Which are Foam, shampoo, bonnet, dry and carpet extraction called steam cleaning.
What about dry cleaning?
Although our primary method for many years was dry cleaning, we only use it now for special situations. Compared to hot-water extraction, dry cleaning is limited in its ability to remove soil.
Can you get out any stain?
With our experience and expertise, we are able to get out difficult spots. If a spot is removable, we have what it takes to get it out.oil.
What is that black line around the baseboard of my carpet?
Filter soiling can be found along walls, under doors, beneath drapes, around the edge of HVAC registers, or anywhere air is forced to flow through the carpet. When air pressure and currents encounter a restriction, the air will pass through the carpet. The carpet acts as a filter, trapping small particulates, oils, and other pollutants that are in the air. These small particles stick tightly to the carpet. Often, they are held in place by micro-occlusion and electrical charges and are difficult to remove by agitation alone. However, they can be removed by our products that are designed to neutralize the electrical charges and then lubricate and suspend the fine particles.
Can I use any over the counter carpet spotter?
We do not recommend over-the-counter spotters, because they are high in alkalinity and leave a tremendous amount of residue. If you are not able to get that spot out, just give as a call and we will be happy to help you, using our effective spot removers.
Do you clean Berber carpet?
Yes we do. Berber is a weave, not a particular type of fabric; it is simply a type of loop construction that comes in olefin, nylon, wool, or blend. Berber requires a more thorough cleaning process than other types of carpets because a flushing action needs to take place to get under, around, and through the loops. Other companies that are not as thorough have many problems with Berber because they leave soil behind thatwicks back to the surface.
Do you clean sisal, sea grass, grass, wool, silk, rayon, and chintz?
