Step 4: Pre-Spot/Pre-Spray
Areas that we pointed out as potential problem stains are pre-treated with different products, depending on what originally made the spot. This is a key factor for removing them during the cleaning process. Once spot staining is addressed, the carpeted area that we will clean is pre-sprayed with a bio-degradable carpet detergent that sits on the carpet to break up the soil, dirt, grime and whatever else is lodged in the carpet fibers.
Step 5: Carpet Agitation
We use a counter rotating brush that removes pet hair, dander, and other debris deep in the carpet fibers. Removal of this debris helps eliminate the “wet dog” smell when carpets get wet. Additionally, elimination of the dander, pet hair and other debris help improve indoor air quality leaving your home significantly cleaner and healthier.
Step 6: Rinse and Extract
Once the dirt and debris has been loosened, our state-of-the art truck-mounted hot water extraction cleaning process thoroughly flushes the carpet pile. Pressure and heat (180°-190° F) are regulated to prevent the carpet from being overly wet, while still sanitizing your carpet thoroughly.
Step 7: Post-Spot Treatment
If any spots are not removed during the cleaning process, specialty spotting techniques are employed. Note: Some stains may simply be permanent. Ideally, our technician identifies these stains for you ahead of time.
Step 8: Carpet Grooming
We hand groom all cleaned areas with a carpet rake that gives your carpet a “finished” look. This Step also aids in evenly coating carpet fibers with the protector if you had us apply it to your carpet.
Step 9: Post-Cleaning Inspection
Our technician does a final walk-through with you to point out the cleaning results and to make sure that you are completely thrilled with the job we have done. That’s the carpet cleaning process from Service First Carpet Cleaning and Restoration!
