THE HEAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Steam Cleaning (Hot Water Extraction) removes more soil than other systems because it uses super-heated water flowing quickly under intense pressure to flush away dirt. Then a powerful vacuum system recovers the water. Many cleaning machines only recover 40-50% of the water they put down. This just leaves your carpets too wet or they just spread the dirt around.

 

Carpeting and floor coverings are among the largest investments of many homes and businesses.

Here are some interesting facts

It is surprising that carpet cleaning often is poorly planned and assigned to inexperienced individuals. Janitors or weekend carpet cleaners usually do NOT have any formal training or industry certifications to clean your carpets. At Chuck’s Carpet Cleaning we strive to further our education by attending industry certification schools. You would not allow a weekend dentist with mail order credentials work on your teeth, right? Same thing should apply to your carpets.

 

Some owners of cleaning companies buy the lowest priced equipment and cleaning products to save money. This means that your carpets could be subjected to rapid resoiling, color changes, and fiber deterioration or delamination if you have them clean your carpets. This leads to premature wear, damage, and replacement.

 

Another important factor is your home’s Indoor air Quality.

 

The use of the best available cleaning solutions and equipment, along with trained, knowledgeable technicians is essential to doing a GREAT job for you.

 

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT Chuck’s Carpet Cleaning?

 

After all, other companies say they’re the best …

Who can you believe?

 

HERE’S WHY YOU’LL LIKE US BEST !

OUR CARPET CARE PROCESS

 

NINE STEPS TO A CLEAN, HEALTHY CARPET

 

Chuck’s Carpet Cleaning offers carpet cleaning package options for your consideration. Decide which options best suit your needs and budget.

 

STEP 1 PRE-INSPECTION: We conduct a pre-inspection alongside of you to ensure all of your needs are met.

 

STEP 2 REMOVAL OF SPOTS: We offer spot and stain removal. It is a good idea to remove spots as soon as they appear, even before the area is scheduled for cleaning. The sooner spots are removed, the easier they are to remove and the less likely they are to cause permanent appearance problems.

 

WHAT ABOUT PET ODOR AND STAINS?

Some carpets are damaged severely from pet urine stains and odor. These stains and odor are usually removable! We offer a special process for effective pet odor and stain removal!

 

STEP 3 PRE-SPRAY SOLUTION (Pre-conditioning your carpet) : Pre-sprays loosen and suspend the greasy and oily soils that adhere to your carpet fibers. These are the soils that vacuuming does not remove. Such soils exist everywhere, but are more noticeable, due to their concentration, in high traffic areas, such as just inside doorways, in hallways, in front of furniture, etc.

These soils often are tracked in from asphalt, automotive oil in driveways and parking lots. In addition, many food and beverage spills fall in this category.

To allow the pre-spray to do its job, it should be allowed to dwell for 10 to 15 minutes to loosen and emulsify the soil. The process is similar to soaking dishes before washing them, in order to allow dried food to loosen.

SPECIAL SOLUTIONS AVAILABLE FOR CHEMICALLY SENSITIVE INDIVIDUALS

If you have known chemical allergies please let us know.We can utilize a special group of products that are hypoallergenic. We can also clean with clear water to remove soil.

 

STEP 4 CARPET AGITATION: Carpet agitation that offers spectacular results! This helps to work the pre-spray into the carpet freeing up the soil that needs to be removed.

 

STEP 5 EXTRACTION: This is the process of spraying hot water into the carpet then extracting the dirty water, leaving your carpet fresh and clean. Extraction is where the "rubber meets the road" (or, in this case, where the water meets the carpet).

The more soil and chemical residue left in the carpet the faster the carpet will re-soil.

The reason is that dust, dirt and other matter are attracted to residue like a magnet and adhere to it, quickly building up to re-soil the carpet.

If carpet starts to look dingy just a week or so after cleaning, it is likely that a considerable amount of soil-attracting residue was left in the carpet during the extraction process.

Lower quality chemicals also contribute to increased residue levels, another good reason to use an extractor with a higher Impact Rate and better flushing action to remove as much of that residue as possible.

 

STEP 6 CARPET PROTECTION: Most carpets have a stain/soil protection product applied at the mill. However these protective coatings wear off and are cleaned off over the years and should be re-applied periodically to keep the protection level in tact.

We offer a protective finish after the carpet’s been cleaned – it enhances the carpet’s ability to resist soil & stains, makes the vacuuming easier, and the carpet cleans up better the next time you require service.

Never have your carpets cleaned without requesting protector. It’s cheap insurance against spills, spots, & stains. In fact, we cannot truly warranty our cleaning over time without the application of our protective finish.

 

STEP 7 DRYING: There are a number of reasons why it's desirable for carpet to dry quickly. When carpet takes too long to dry in a warm and humid environment, the possibility of mold and mildew growth becomes a concern.

Moisture in the carpet: The less moisture left in the carpet, the more quickly it will dry. Unfortunately, most extractor machines do not have vacuum systems that are strong or efficient enough to promote quick drying. This is primarily due to the distance the air and water must travel from the carpet to the recovery tank.

We double back over the carpet to remove as much moisture as possible.

 

STEP 8 GROOMING: The final step is to brush groom your carpet’s pile to enhance drying, to work the protector into the fiber, and to remove machine marks. This service is included with every carpet cleaning service.

 

STEP 9 APPLICATION OF DEODORIZER: Sometimes the application of a deodorizer or EPA Registered Carpet Sanitizer is necessary to get rid of bad odors. We make this option available offer available to you.

What do we recommend?

There's no doubt that regular, professional cleanings benefit both you and your carpet. Removing unwanted contaminates from your carpet promotes a healthier indoor environment. Properly maintaining your carpet prolongs its useful life. We can help you determine how often you should clean your carpets during your cleaning visit. Here are a few tips.

Clean your carpet sooner rather than later. Soil buried in your carpet acts like an abrasive, accelerating the wear of face yarns, and soils are much harder to remove when they've been ground in over an extended period of time.

Vacuum regularly, especially in front of exterior doors where soils can accumulate.

Clean up spills when they happen.

Use products intended for use on carpets only. Try water or carbonated water first. If the spot remains use a non-residual product such as “Spotter Blotter”.

Properly performed cleaning, even frequent cleaning, does not damage your carpet nor will it cause your carpet to soil more quickly.
