12-Step Carpet Cleaning Process
At Professional Carpet Systems we offer a 12-Step Carpet Cleaning Program that is not only safe but also effective. Our cleaning program consists of the following steps:
Step 1 – Pre-Inspection
Every proper carpet cleaning starts with a thorough carpet inspection preformed by one of our IICRC Certified Cleaning Specialists. Our Cleaning Specialist will inspect your carpeting for specific areas of concern, carpet construction and soiling conditions. Additionally, our Cleaning Specialist will advise you of any possible permanent staining that may be present on your carpeting.
Step 2 – Commercial Prevacuum
Your carpet with by thoroughly vacuumed by our Cleaning Specialist with our commercial grade vacuums to remove dry particulate soil. This is one of the most important steps in cleaning your carpeting and is also required by the IICRC Standards.
Step 3 – Furniture Moving
We recognize that when we are in your home or on your property that we are working guests. Our Cleaning Specialists will be courteous and treat your home or property with the utmost respect and consideration. This is especially true when we are moving your precious belongings. Sofas, chairs and tables will be carefully moved out of the way for the cleaning process. Larger pieces , beds and dressers can be moved at the clients request. When the cleaning process is complete the furniture is put back in place with protective disposable blocks and pads.
Step 4 – Pre-Spray
Traffic areas and spots are pretreated for more effective soil removal and to break down soil. The pre-spray that we use is soap free, odor fee, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic with no VOC’s and no off-gassing. Our pre-sprays are made with all natural ingredients and are one of the safest products on the market today. Additionally, these products are Indoor Air Quality Approved by HBIA, Green Seal Certified and are certified by the SOA through the Carpet & Rug
Step 5 – Pre-Spot
Difficult Spots are treated with special solutions to increase the changes for removal.
Step 6 – Pre-Grooming
Our Cleaning Specialists will pre-groom your carpeting with a carpet groomer or a rotary cleaning machine (depending on the soiling level) to further loosen traffic area soil.
Step 7 – Soil Extraction & Rinse
Once the soil has been loosened, the carpet will be extracted with our CRI Gold Lable approved truck-mounted, hot water extraction will thoroughly flush the carpet pile. Pressure and heat from the truck-mounted unit is regulated so that the carpet does not become over-wet. We clean with water temperatures between 150°F – 200°F depending on the carpet fiber.
Step 8 – Neautralize
Every carpet that we clean is pH balanced to eliminate soil attracting residues. When we are finished cleaning your carpet the only thing left behind is soft, fluffy, clean carpet.
Step 9 – Post-Spot Treatment
If any spots are not removed during the cleaning process, specialty spotting techniques are employed. Note: Permanent stains indentified by our Cleaning Specialist may not be able to be removed.
Step 10 – Speed Dry
During the cleaning process our Cleaning Specialists will place high velocity air movers on the carpet to speed dry the carpeting.
Step 11 – Post-Grooming
The carpet pile is groomed with a carpet groomer to set the pile of the carpet in one direction for faster drying and visual appeal.
Step 12 – Post Inspection
