Our 12 Step Carpet Cleaning Process
Step 1: Primary Inspection
The proper carpet cleaning always starts with a pre-inspection of the future work area. Our cleaners inspect particularly soiled areas, particularities of the carpet construction. At the end of this step you will get the full information about permanent staining.
Step 2: Primary vacuum cleaning
If there is need, your floor carpeting will be pre-vacuumed in order to remove dry soil. This is an additional vacuuming, the main vacuum cleaning is provided during the carpet cleaning process.
Step 3: Furniture Moving
Such furniture as tables, chairs or sofas that hampers cleaning we will carefully move aside. Larger items such as beds, china cabinets, etc. won’t be moved unless specially requested (additional charges apply). If there is a need carpet/furniture will be protected after with disposable blocks or plastic tab to prevent staining (please leave them at least for 24 hrs).
Step 4: Primary Contamination Treatment and Pre-Spotting
We will mandatory pre-treat the most soiled areas with special products for the proper contamination removal during the cleaning.
Step 5: Primary agitating
In order to clean carpet in more efficient way at “Five Star Carpet Service” we treat it with a special carpet brush or floor scrubber before we start carpet cleaning.
Step 6: Extraction and Rinsing
The moment strong contamination is reduced we will thoroughly rinse your carpet fiber using modern hot water extraction technology. Due to the temperature and pressure control we only need to slightly wet your carpet just enough for the cleaning. The temperature can vary from 60 to 200 degrees. It depends on the type of the carpet material and soiling. In addition this step greatly improves air quality as all pollutants, allergens and dust mites are removed from your carpet.
Step 7: Neutralize
One of the most important steps is a neutralizing. We use only PH balanced cleaning and self-neutrolizing products that don’t leave sticky resedue and/or chemical after the usage during carpet cleaning.
Step 8: Post Spot Treatment
If after our cleaning some spots are still on the carpet, we treat them with special spots removing techniques. Note: Methods excludes permanent stains that were discovered during the pre-inspection.
