Residential Carpet Cleaning

Residential Carpet Cleaning

We know how tough it can be to keep your carpet clean and protected from life's daily dirt, dust and spills. We offer a professional, safe, and non-toxic carpet cleaning solution that removes the toughest deep down dirt and hard to remove stains. We pre-spray an emulsifier that breaks up the soil making it easy to remove. This is followed by a clear-water rinse restoring the carpet to a neutral PH level. Powerful suction not only removes the deepest dirt and stains but extracts virtually all of the moisture for a very quick drying time.

Carpet Protection

Absolute Carpet Care offers only the best in carpet and fabric protection. DuPont Teflon Advanced protects your investment lengthening the life of your carpet. Teflon repels dirt and spills making it easier to care for your carpet. Teflon is the best soil protection for all types of carpet and is safe around family and pets. DuPont Teflon Advanced delivers its protection by forming a molecular shield around each carpet fiber. The shield lowers the surface energy of the carpet fibers causing them to repel liquid spills as well as dust and dirt. This helps keep dirt and stains from being ground in or absorbed by the fibers. Teflon is applied with air sprayers to ensure that every fiber is evenly coated.  DuPont Teflon Advanced Protection is undetectable and does not change the appearance or texture of the carpet or fabrics. It just offers the superior protection you would expect. (Other carpet protectants may also be available)

Our Superior Carpet Cleaning Method:

Our highly trained and licensed carpet cleaners or technicians use a method often called Hot Water Extraction" or "Steam Cleaning." The temperature of the water will become extremely hot reaching over 200 degrees F. A fine spray of water is used to break-up dirt deep down in the carpet which is followed by a vacuum opening that immediately sucks up the water in front of the sprayer. Soil and water are recovered from your carpet by our powerful vacuums and deposited into a self-enclosed holding tank. This way no dirty water is ever used in the cleaning. This type of carpet cleaning can be done from a truck-mounted unit, stationed outside the home, using a hose and floor tool or by a portable system that can reach anywhere in your home and on any story of an apartment building.

How is it Superior? According to whom?

Choosing the correct carpet cleaning process is very important. Our extract and rinse process is a superior deep and thorough carpet cleaning that will keep your carpets, rugs, and upholstery lasting a long time. Steam cleaning or hot water extraction is the carpet cleaning method recommended by all of the largest carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers. It is also the only carpet cleaning method classified as "deep cleaning". Any other way is merely a superficial or "light surface cleaning" because it does not remove soil deep in the pile of the carpet. This defeats the whole purpose of the carpet cleaning. Also, these other methods leave behind large amounts of chemical residue and can actually cause permanent damage to fibers shortening the life of the carpet.  Going over the surface of the carpet with a buffer just won’t do it and can wear out the carpet only to have the soil resurface soon after. We don’t just remove soil - we extract the bacteria, dust-mites, and much more. It kills bacteria, dust-mites, and germs using safe, non-toxic, biodegradable solutions that are powerful.  We will restore the carpet to its original condition. This process will prevent residue, keep your carpets looking new for longer, and prevent stains from reappearing. It also improves indoor air quality by removing allergens and microscopic pollutants that collect in your carpets and contaminate the air you breathe. Please check with your carpet manufacturer for recommendations. The world's largest carpet manufacturer, Shaw Industries, publishes a brochure on maintenance that recommends this method. Their latest research proves that our method is the best for cleaning carpet.

How often should I have my carpets cleaned?

It is recommended that the carpet be professionally cleaned every 6 to 18 months depending upon the number of residents, the frequency and type of activity, and whether the carpet is a light or dark color. It is better for the life of the carpet if it is cleaned before becoming too unsightly.  It will be easier to clean and you’ll get even better results. Allowing the carpet to become too soiled may result in irreparable damage. It is an urban myth that cleaning the carpet before it is necessary will cause it to get dirty faster. This may be traced back to the time when the shampoo methods were the most common.  Vacuuming the carpet after a cleaning and on a regular basis will help keep the carpet clean and looking new.

How long does it take to dry?
The drying time is much faster and leaves the carpet damp for a much shorter amount of time because we extract very hot water removing virtually all of the moisture. The carpet will often dry while we are still cleaning it, but may vary depending on the conditions, or will take merely 1 hour to dry.

Why don’t I just clean the carpet myself?
Cleaning the carpet yourself can cost you the same as having us do it for you or even more. When you add it up, our coupon special at Absolute Carpet Care (click on specials for coupons) is the same price as renting the machine with a small bottle of cleaning solution. The only difference is you’ll have to do the labor yourself!  The world’s largest carpet manufacture recommends professional carpet cleaning because of the risks of over-wetting, discoloring, re-soiling, improper use of cleaning agents, yellowing, fiber damage and other severe problems. Don't sweat it and steer clear of all the risk!
