Our 10-step Truck-mounted Steam Carpet Cleaning Process
(#1 Recommended Method by Carpet Manufacturers)
Step 1: Pre-Inspection
We will walk through the home with you to visually inspect the carpet and identify potential permanent stains to give you an honest evaluation of expected results.
Step 2: Soft Water
Vancouver WA and most of Clark County Washington tend to have hard water, which will not provide the best results. Therefore, I installed a full-size water softener system at my house solely to fill up my 200-gallon fresh water tank. This allows me to clean all day long using soft water, which in return cleans better and leaves you with a softer feeling carpet.
Step 3: Pre-spray
A preconditional agent is applied to break down traffic lanes and spots. I use 2 different preconditions depending on age or carpet and soil and spot conditional.
Step 4: Pre-spot
Difficult spots are pre-treated with special cleaning agents to help increase chances of removal.
Step 5: Power Scrubbing
Depending on the age and soil condition of your carpet, a professional power scrubber may be used to further loosen soil in your carpets.
Step 6: Truck Mounted Soil Extraction and Rinse
Your carpet is thoroughly rinsed with the most powerful truck mounted system that is being used in Vancouver WA and all of Clark County. This allows me to get your carpet fibers as clean and dry as possible.
Step 7: Neutralizing
Every carpet I clean is pH balanced so there is no sticky residue left behind. This step is very important not to skip as it gives you a soft feeling carpet.
Step 8: Post Spot
If any spots or stains are still remaining they will get an extra treatment. This process helps on stubborn stains that may not come out doing the main cleaning process like coffee, tea, and urine.
Step 9: Surface Deodorizer
We will apply a quality deodorizer to your carpets to help get rid of any smells that may be lurking in your carpet's fibers. This step is optional, customers with asthma and or sensitivities with smells should be cautious.
Step 10: Post Cleaning Inspection
With free shoe covers given to you after carpet cleaning, I will have you go around and look at the job so I can take care of any problem areas you may see. All jobs come with my 30-day clean carpet guarantee. If for any reason you are not 100% happy with your carpet cleaning I will return and re-clean free of charge. If you are still unhappy after the re-clean, you will receive a full refund!
