How Professionals Tackle Cleaning Your Carpets
Your technician will start by determining if your carpet is-water tolerant, in which case steam cleaning is generally recommended.

The piece will be vacuum cleaned to open up the pile and remove loose debris. Dirty marks or heavy traffic areas are pre-treated to ensure the most even possible final result. After this the whole floor covering is shampooed, or a dirt absorbing powder is spread and worked into the pile.
Powders are vacummed up once they’ve had time to do their work. In the case of steam cleaning, the water, detergent, and dirt are extracted using top quality machinery which removes up to 90% of the moisture. This ensures a bright final colour and speeds up drying.
Once the cleaning is complete you’ll be advised on drying time – this can be reduced by introducing air blowers if requested. You’ll also be given the option of a Scotchgard treatment to protect against future staining.
