The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) as well as many carpet manufacturers recommend a professional carpet cleaning every six to twelve months to assist in extending the life of your carpet. In some cases, this is required by manufacturers in order to maintain warranty coverage. The method we use that is recommended by the majority of carpet manufacturers is Hot Water Extraction, sometimes known as “steam cleaning”. ServiceMaster Restoration by Carefree specializes in the hot water extraction method. Our highly trained and certified technicians and top-of-the-line, truck mounted equipment will leave your carpet looking like new.
No, our truck mount has a clean water reservoir that is filled with fresh water prior to every job, and the truck mount is powered by the vehicle.
The carpet won’t be excessively wet, but slightly damp for a few hours. Running a ceiling fan and/or HVAC can help reduce drying time.
No. The process is similar, but the carpet cleaning machines available for rent at grocery stores simply do not have the power to provide the water pressure and suction necessary to achieve a professional deep cleaning of carpet. These machines can potentially damage carpet by not being able to remove all the water from the carpet, leading to possible delamination and microbial growth.
It depends on the age, type, and saturation of the stain. Cat odor is very difficult to remove due to the chemical composition of cat urine. We have several products that can help to neutralize cat odors, although we may not be able to remove 100% of the smell. Dog urine is somewhat easier to remove. Our technicians are trained and experienced in removing all types of stains, and we will do our best to remove each stain as thoroughly as possible.
