12-Step Carpet Cleaning Process
√ Step 1: Pre-Inspection
A technician will inspect your carpet visually during a walk through with you and will identify any possible permanent staining. He will listen to any concerns that you have and give you an evaluation of the expected results.
√ Step 2: Commercial Pre-Vacuum
A powerful commercial vacuum is used for thorough removal of the dry soil. This is one of the most important and overlooked steps in the cleaning process.
√ Step 3: Move Furniture
Under our regular pricing schedule, we will move your tables, chairs, sofas, and smaller items.
√ Step 4: Traffic Lane Treatment
For a thorough cleaning, our preconditioning traffic lane cleaning agent is applied. This is to emulsify and break down the soiling in your traffic areas.
√ Step 5: Pre-spot Treatment
To increase chances of removal, difficult spots are pre-treated with special solutions.
√ Step 6: Pre-groom/Agitate
A professional carpet groomer is used when needed in some of the challenging areas. This is to loosen the soil in the carpet even further.
√ Step 7: Extract and Rinse
The carpet is then rinsed thoroughly with A Clean Pro‘s powerful truck-mounted hot water extraction system without leaving any residue or over-wetting your carpet.
√ Step 8: Neutralizing Treatment
The pH is then balanced to ensure that there will be no residue left behind and that your carpet is fresh and soft. This is accomplished at the same time as step 7.
√ Step 9: Post Spotting Treatment
Technicians use special spotting solutions to address any spots left behind. To give your carpet a longer life, don’t forget to apply professional carpet protector to your carpet!
√ Step 10: Post-Grooming
A professional grooming tool is then used to set the carpet pile straight up when we leave. This step aids the carpet in drying faster and in an upright position. Note: some carpets do not need this step.
√ Step 11: Speed Dry
High velocity air movers are then set on the carpet to promote a more efficient dry time.
√ Step 12: Post Cleaning Inspection
A walk through will be done to inspect the cleaning results and make sure that you are 100% satisfied.
