Carpet Cleaning Greenville
Our carpet cleaning service sucks the soils right out of carpets and upholstery!
Did you know your carpet acts like one enormous filter? All the sediments we track into our homes and offices settle to the bottom of these carpets, retaining harmful particles and organisms. Indoor air quality suffers from dirty carpets. Vacuuming helps, but it doesn't kill the harmful organisms that live in the carpet jungle. Particles sink to the bottom of the carpet and abrade the fibers, resulting in a less lustrous look as well as fiber loss. Human hair, skin flakes, pet hair and dander, pollen, bits of degraded spider web, and flea eggs are just some of the organic particles spread throughout our carpets. Ewwww! Don't you just want to roll around on your carpet tonight before crawling into bed? But wait, there's more! Bacteria, viruses, dust mites, cockroaches, and other bugs leave their own 'signatures' behind, in the form of eggs, bodily wastes and body parts. Let's just say you'll have some small scale biological contamination. Left untreated it can get ugly.
Mold especially loves carpet, especially if it is made of wool or cotton. Keep those kinds of carpets and rugs dry, or mold will grow on them.
Hopefully you haven't been too frightened to walk in your home! There is a solution to the problems presented with dirty carpets. Steam cleaning will kill the biological organisms, and vacuum extraction will remove them. Our process of carpet cleaning always includes first vacuuming the carpet. Vacuuming removes up to 70% of the soils, so if you ever have a carpet cleaner come in and they don't vacuum first, watch out. That's a sure sign they are cutting corners. After vacuuming, we spray our emulsifier, specific for residential or commercial carpets. We then rake the solution into the fibers, and let it dwell without letting it dry. Dwell time allows the solution to bond with soils. When it's time to steam clean, we use 210º F water with a rinsing agent. As stated above, the heat kills the organisms and eggs in the carpet, as well as works as a catalyst to release the soil's bond from the carpet. Vacuum extraction is just a fancy way of saying we suck up all the bad stuff that we loosed from your carpet fibers. The final step is to fan dry the carpets.
Carpets should be steam cleaned at LEAST once per year at the very minimum. If you have kids and pets, we recommend you have it done twice per year.
