RESIDENTIAL SERVICES: CARPET CLEANING AND REPAIRS
BIG CLEANING BENEFITS
A 2013 study by the US Environmental Protection Agency indicated that indoor air could be more than 100 times worse than outdoor air. Breathing contaminated air can be especially harmful to babies, elders, and people with respiratory issues. The solution is regular vacuuming in combination with professional steam cleaning to ensure that your home is free from contaminants that can cause health problems for your family.
Nothing protects your carpeting investment better than steam cleaning with our state-of-the-art truck-mount system. Our certified technicians use this system, preferred by carpet manufacturers, to remove and flush dirt, grime, and allergens The drying time is quicker with flushing versus conventional portable cleaning systems. Carpets are damp after we are finished cleaning but will be completely dry by the next morning.
People with respiratory issues must also be considered. Our EnviroCare™ carpet cleaning systems use only hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly solutions to deep clean all types of carpet. Our deep vacuuming systems have HEPA filters that lift soil and dust, and then trap it to prevent the particles from becoming airborne again. In addition, our programs meet or exceed those set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

When Spills Happen
Today’s stain-resistant fabrics make treating spills much easier. Still, no carpet is 100% resistant. The key is to act QUICKLY:
Step 1 – Absorb the Spill
- Blot spot with a dry white absorbent cloth, or plain white paper towel. A coloured material may transfer ink or dye to your carpet). Continue blotting until the area is damp. Semi-solids like food may need to be scooped up with a spoon. Dry, solid bits can be vacuumed.
- Do not scrub or use a brush. Bristles and elbow grease can cause fraying and texture change.
Step 2 – Treat the Stain
- Use one of these cleaners approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute. Though any of these listed have been laboratory tested, you should still test them first on a scrap of carpet or in an out-of-sight place.
- Follow the product’s directions carefully, and remember more is not better. Apply a small amount of the cleaner to a white cloth, and work in gently from the edges to the center. Blot; don’t scrub! You may need to do this several times to remove the spot. Once gone, blot the area with clear water to remove any remaining product.
