Residential Carpet Cleaning
Did you know that your carpet warranty requires that your carpet be professionally cleaned with the Hot Water Extraction method at least every 12-18 months? (depending on the manufacturer) This is important to keep those sandy, abrasive soils from grinding your fibers down and causing premature wear.
At Beautiful Carpets and Floors, we have developed a highly effective 12-step approach to cleaning carpets. Following these 12 steps allows us to achieve consistently beautiful results, as well as giving our clients a standard of expectation. Here is our 12 step cleaning process that we use on our residential cleaning accounts. Please note that abnormal conditions such as excessive pet contamination, mal-odors, excessive red stains, or delicate fabrics and fibers may require additional steps.
Step 1: Pre-Inspection
We identify potentially permanent stains to give you a reasonable expectation of the final results.
Step 2: Commercial Pre-Vacuum
We pre-vacuum which allows us to remove 80% of the dry soil.
Step 3: Move Furniture
This step is optional. We can clean the traffic areas in your home without moving any furniture.
Step 4: Prepare
We lay down drop cloths to protect wood floors and we place corner guards at the main transitions to protect walls and trim.
Step 5: Pre-Spot
We pre-treat difficult stains to increase chance of removal.
Step 6: Pre-Spray
We apply a preconditioning agent to emulsify and break down the soil and oils. Then we agitate any areas that need extra attention.
Step 7: Clean
We run over the carpet with our rotary jet extractor. Then we do a dry stroke that allows us to recover up to 90% of the moisture we used.
Step 8: Post Spot
We re-treat and re-clean any areas that seem like we could make an additional improvement.
Step 9: Apply Protector
We apply Teflon protector and groom it in so it gets fully dispersed on all of the fibers.
Step 10: Post Groom
We rake out our footprints to make sure we didn’t miss anything and to set the pile so it will dry faster.
Step 11: Speed Dry
As we finish cleaning we set up our down draft air-mover. This takes the warmer, dryer ambient air and blows it down across the surface of the carpet so it usually dries to the touch in 5-6 hours.
Step 12: Post Cleaning Inspection
We make sure every area looks perfect, or as close to it as we can make it!
Thats it! Don’t forget that Beautiful Carpets and Floors fully guarantees every job we do! We even guarantee against “re-occurring” stains thanks to a special process we use to COMPLETELY remove the soil in the backing and pad that is wicking up and causing the stain!
If you aren’t completely thrilled with your cleaning, we’ll clean again at no charge! If you’re still not thrilled, we’ll refund every dime. No questions asked.
