Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between “ENCAPSULATION” and traditional steam cleaning?

With the encapsulation process,  we use an polymer based product that clings to the dirt and oil in your carpet, Removes it from the fiber and surrounds or “encapsulates” it. After the product dries to a crystal powder, a simple vacuuming removes the contaminants. This process leaves regularly mainatianed  carpets looking their best, with very little dry time.

The traditional steam cleaners or Hot Water Extraction, is reserved for carpets that have not been regularly maintained. We get it, life gets away from you and your carpets haven’t been cleaned in 3, 5 or even 20 years. Your dog or cat had some accidents, or maybe you just honestly dont like any method but Hot Water. We understand.  In cases like these, we recommmend the traditional Hot Water Extraction.

What makes our Hot Water Extraction better than the next guy? Products and People. We only use the best of the best, and safest products. Also our equipment is state of the art and regularly maintained. Our Technicians are very well trained, and meticulous cleaners. We employ only the best!

How long do we have to stay off the carpet once you have finished cleaning them?

This depends on what method we use. If we clean with HOST or Ecap, we suggest 30 minutes. 

 

If we use Hot Water Extrction, we recommend about 6 hours. 

Do you clean area rugs?

Yes, we do clean area rugs, Oriental and Persian rugs extra.

 

What should I do if I spill red wine on my white or light colored carpet?

When red wine hits a light colored carpet, try to blot up as much of the wine as possible and then spray hydrogen peroxide on the stain, followed by a hefty sprinkle of baking soda. Make sure that the peroxide and soda fully cover the stained area and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.

As crazy as it sounds here is another solution. When red wine is spilled onto your carpet, white wine can be your true companion. White wine will help neutralize red wine and will make it easier to lift the color off of your carpet or clothing. Simply pour white wine over the stained area and very gently blot the liquid up with a thick towel (be very careful not to rub as this will force the stain into the carpet or clothing fibers). If the stain is still visible, you can add salt or soda to continue lifting out pigment.

Do you offer pet deodorizers?

Yes, we offer a pet and stain deodorizer which is an enzyme that breaks down any remnants that causes the odor.

Carpet Cleaning Tips

To extend the life of your carpet, vacuum weekly.

Always remember when cleaning any type of spill blot with a towel and never rub the spill (this will push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers)
