What We Do and How We Do It

Steve's Carpet Care in Action

Believe it or not a lot of folks with carpeting in their home or office are not aware of the need to have it thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. But the fact is that as beautiful and functional as modern carpeting can be it's not a slab of stainless steel that can be wiped clean with a rag. It is, essentially, a thick, absorbent pad of fabric spread across the floor that you, your employees, your kids, your guests and your pets tread upon daily. It needs a particular type of care in order to continue to look its best and maintain its durability.

A dry vacuuming of your home or office will generally do an excellent job of removing surface dirt and dust along with some of the other things that can be brought in on the soles of shoes. What it won’t do is address the other foreign bodies residing deep inside the pile that are invisible to the eye but affect the home or office environment in subtle, important ways. These unwelcome guests include bacteria and mold--which may have no fear of the standard dry vac--are no match for our state of the art, truck mounted vacuums. Before we bring out the big guns though, there are a few interim steps we need to take to prepare your carpet including:

  • Inspection - By ensuring that we know exactly what type of carpet we’re dealing with we make sure we select the detergents/cleaning products that will help us achieve optimal cleanliness at the end of the process.
  • Pre-spray - This part of the process breaks up stubborn deep-seated dirt and mud as well as stains so the steam vacuum can do its job more effectively. In essence it’s akin to soaking your dishes before washing them.
  • Agitation (if needed) - Heavier soiling sometimes calls for a preliminary scrub to aid in de-flocculation and removal of debris from carpet fibers.
  • An Important Pause - To allow sufficient time for applied detergents to work thoroughly.

Once the preparatory steps are complete it’s time to put the steam vacuum to work. This hi-powered system brings the clean in ways a dry vac can’t hope to replicate and typically consists of:

  • A self-contained hot water system.
  • An injection system to introduce eco-friendly cleaning solutions into the heated water.
  • A high-pressure water pump that delivers the hot water and cleaning solutions directly into the fabric of the carpet.
  • A vacuum blower to remove the waste water and residue.
  • A vacuum hose to remove the waste water and residue from the home or office.
  • A separate waste tank that holds the effluvia for later disposal off-site.

The final advantage of the truck mounted carpet cleaning system is the quick breakdown and cleanup. With no bulky machinery to lug into and out of your home or office and all byproducts moved quickly and efficiently away from the work area there is virtually no cleanup to do once the job is complete. We simply take our hoses back to the truck and we’re done.

Why You Should Do It

Steam cleaning your carpets regularly will pay dividends far beyond simply extending the life of your carpet and removing a few stains (although it will do that too). Having your carpeting professionally steam-cleaned will also...

  • Eliminate Mold Spores and Bacteria - Moisture can permeate nearly any environment or material and carpeting is no exception. Once moisture finds a home in your carpeting microscopic spores take hold and multiply. You may never be aware of this process unfolding until one day you notice a musty odor or your allergies begin acting up. It's not the carpets fault, it's nature. But it doesn’t have to happen and a high pressure steam cleaning will normally remove all of the offending biological materials.
  • Eliminate Dust Mites - Dust mites live off of the dead skin we shed. As they grow, they themselves shed skin and it’s this dust mite skin that is the source of the many adverse reactions people experience. Dust mites have been known to man since the inventor of the microscope, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, first laid eyes on them in 1694. It wasn’t until fairly recently however that their role in allergic and asthmatic reactions was discovered. When your carpet is professionally steam cleaned not only do you remove the dead dust mite skin, you remove the dust mites themselves as well.
  • Enhance the Value of Your Home - The better you care for your home the greater the resale value. As it is with cars or books or works of art, if it’s been well maintained it’s worth more. No one wants to buy a home if their first thought upon entering is “What’s that smell?”
