I know you must be asking what do I do to get my carpets cleaned properly? Here are the facts about carpet cleaning:

  • The only way to get soapy residue, dirt, dust and grime out is to have your carpets cleaned with a truck mounted cleaning company that understands the chemistry of carpet cleaning
  • There is a chemistry to the cleaning solution
  • There are many carpet cleaners that are totally unaware of this
  • The ph of a chemical is key to cleaning properly
  • Just like cleaning your hair you must first clean with an alkaline because this will attract the acidic dirt out. Then you must rinse with an acid rinse like a conditioner. This leaves the carpet soft and the ph balanced close to neutral
  • If the ph balance is off, the carpet will continue to pull up dust from the pad. This is called “wicking”
  • If you have ever had your carpets cleaned and a spot came back it was probably caused by “wicking” or over-wetting
  • Carpets need to dry in the least amount of time possible
  • A powerful truck mount system with 300-400 cfm (which we use) will leave the carpets dry quicker

So, as you can see, the only way to get your carpets cleaned and prevent quick re-soiling is to use a company that is trained in the chemistry of carpet cleaning and who use a professional truck mounted system. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call!
