Our Services

Xtra Touch has been cleaning carpets since 1997. From day one, our mission as carpet cleaners in Vancouver, WA has been to provide high-quality cleaning and to deliver this service with maximum client satisfaction. We strive to educate the Vancouver, WA community on how to take the absolute best care of their carpeting, rugs, and fine fabrics. We are committed to the highest level of integrity, education, customer service and cleaning procedures.

Biokleening

Many traditional carpet cleaning products emit synthetic chemicals. These harmful chemicals are often included in housecleaning products because they are inexpensively mass produced, but they are also highly ineffective. These products can have serious health repercussions for humans, companion animals, and the environment.

Each time a chemical is used for cleaning, we are exposed  to its harmful side effects. Not only do our bodies immediately absorb the chemicals during use, but our environment absorbs chemicals that are released during the production, packaging, and disposal of that product. The simplest way to forgo the harmful side effects of conventional cleaning products is to use the tools that nature has provided us.

The life of your carpet will be extended with regular scheduled biokleening. We recommend cleaning every 12 to 18 months.

Carpet Cleaning

We apply a high-quality cleaning solution prespray to the carpet, which consists of natural citrus-peel extracts, grapefruit-seed extract, cold-pressed Valencia orange, and soy. For traffic areas with heavy soils, especially if grease is present, a different cleaning solution may be used. The prespray softens and loosens the soil for a faster, more thorough cleaning. To loosen the soil further, we physically agitate the carpet prior to cleaning. For heavily soiled areas, we use a booster to enhance the cleaning action.

Pet, Odor, & Stain Removal

Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. It can also create an unhealthy indoor environment. When urine is first deposited onto a floor or fabric, it is in an almost “neutral” state which means it is easier to remove when it is fresh. Once it dries, it turns “alkaline” and becomes more difficult to remove. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it will permanently change the dye structure, therefore causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done.

Oriental Rug Cleaning

Our area-rug cleaning process involves comprehensive stages. Rugs are separated, based on whether they are machine made or handmade. Handmade area rugs are generally more sensitive.

Next, we remove as much dust as possible from the rug. Rugs are then tested for colorfastness. If the colors bleed, we have to use special methods, such as dry cleaning or extraction, which leave minimal amounts of water on the rug.

We inspect the rug for soiled spots and pretreat those areas. Please understand that some stains are not removable, as they have permanently changed the colors of the wool. We will neutralize all odors, including pet odor, from the rug.

Upholstery & Fine Fabric Cleaning

We service all types, from the finest natural fibers to the hardiest synthetics. Upholstery can be very delicate to work with, so we have a variety of upholstery-cleaning techniques and cleaners, ranging from our water-free presprays all the way to our very aggressive presprays for durable fabrics. We carefully inspect all upholstery prior to cleaning, and then we test the fiber to determine whether it is synthetic or natural and if it is colorfast. We then decide on the most suitable process, according to the type of material and degree of soiling. Call Xtra Touch for our experience, education, and good reputation.
