WHAT CLEANING METHOD DO YOU USE?
Hot water extraction (steam cleaning) is the best cleaning method
available. Shaw Industries and Mohawk Carpet, the two largest carpet
manufactures, require regular steam cleaning as a condition of their
warranties. In fact, 99% of carpet manufacturers recommend truck-mounted steam cleaning.
- A cleaning agent is applied to the carpet and allowed dwell time
- time to work into your carpet. Dwelling time breaks down dirt
and any other substances so they can be removed easily.
- Following pre-spray and dwell time, suspended soil must be flushed
from the carpet using hot water extraction equipment. Powerful jets
breakdown the suspended soils/spots with hot water and are immediately
extracted and removed from the carpet. A heated solution requires
less solution, minimizing residue and dry time. Our machine runs at
a constant 250 degrees; yet is still safe on all synthetic fibers.
Heat can be turned down for wool and other delicate carpet and rugs.
- The hot water contains a rinsing agent that neutralizes the pre-spray,
leaves the carpet soft, residue-free, and in a neutral ph. This leaves
a nearly virgin, soil-free fiber that resists re-soiling much as it
did when new.
HOW OFTEN & WHY SHOULD YOU CLEAN YOUR CARPET?
- DID YOU KNOW? According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, carpet
can hold as much as one pound of soil per square foot before it is
noticed. It is often diry long before the human eye can see it is.
- A CLEAN CARPET LASTS LONGER. Cleaning your carpet reduces wear by
removing fine & large dirt particles that scratch and dull your
carpet accelerating wear.
- IT'S A HEALTHY CHOICE - Carpet is one of the largest filters
in your home. Dust, soil, and other contaminants get trapped in your
carpet. "Every time carpets and fabrics are emptied of their
pollution build-up through professional cleaning methods, there is
a health benefit." * EPA
- IT'S RECOMMENDED! Many carpet warranties require steam cleaning
on a regular basis. It's recommended that you clean your carpet
every 6 to 18 months before it shows soiling! TIP: Move a piece of furniure covering your carpet to see the difference between clean and dirty carpet .
Clean Carpets = Healthy Living!
DID YOU KNOW? Recent studies show that carpet actually improves indoor
air quality and is safer and healthy for indoor environments versus
other flooring choices!
IS YOUR PROCESS TRULY RESIDUE FREE AND WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
This is the most important step of carpet cleaning.
Carpets cleaned by Esteem Carpet Cleaning stay cleaner longer because we leave no residue behind to cause resoiling or contribute to chemical sensitivities.
Often, carpet-care professionals will leave a residue that can re-soil your carpet quickly - even if the cleaning solutions claim to be residue-free. The problem is that cleaning solutions often are rinsed improperly from the carpet. The cleaning solution residue attracts soil, making the carpet dirty again sooner and difficult to clean in the future. Residues also may contribute to chemical sensitivities.
Esteem uses a completely Biodegradable safer cleaner that utilizes natural oxygen released during the cleaning process to brighten textiles and destroy microorganisms. It will give you a cleaner, brighter, fresher, residue free clean. It contains no solvents, no butyl, no surfactant, no soaps, no fragrance and no chlorides.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY CARPET TO DRY?
Drying time is affected by humidity, airflow and type of carpet.
Depending on the time of year, heat or air conditioning can speed
the drying process up. It typically takes 3 to 12 hours depending on
the variables. Carpets are left damp and not soaked.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT TO WALK ON MY CARPET?
You may walk on your carpet with clean feet, socks or shoes. It is
always best to keep traffic on the wet carpet to a minimum. Extra
caution should be used when walking to hard surfaces. They can be
quite slippery. The carpet must be 100% before moving furniture back.
IS CARPET PROTECTOR REALLY WORTH THE EXTRA COST?
Carpet protector (Scotchgard, Teflon) helps your carpet by making stains and spots easier
to remove. However, it is not as effective against soiling. If you
have heavy soiling in a one year period, more frequent cleanings may
be a better value.
WILL MY CARPETS RESOIL FASTER AFTER MY FIRST CLEANING?
Our modern technology will rinse virtually all cleaning agents out
of your carpet, leaving no residue, so dirt cannot be attracted. This
technology leaves nearly virgin, soil free fiber that resists re-soiling
very much as it did when new. Our main cleaner is soap free and doesn't leave any residue in the carpet.
WON'T WATER RUIN MY CARPET?
No, most modern carpet is water resistant. Of the limited amount
of water we do use, 95% of it will be removed. The problem refers
to carpet cleaners with under-powered machines that leave the carpet
soaked for days. WE HAVE MORE SUCTION THAN AT LEAST 90% OF CARPET CLEANERS
IN NORTHERN COLORADO! (not exaggerated)
WON'T STEAM CLEANING RUGS ON HARDWOOD FLOORS CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE FLOORS?
No, steam cleaning does not get the backing of the carpet or rugs wet and therefore will not penetrate to the floor below.
WHY DO SOME SPOTS REAPPEAR AFTER PROFESSIONAL CLEANING?
If contaminants have absorbed into the carpet backing or the pad,
spots can resurface over time by "wicking" or migrating
up through the carpet fibers. If they re-appear within 30 days we
will gladly re-clean the spots.
WHY DOES STEAM CLEANING MAKE URINE SMELL AGAIN OR WORSE?
Urine contains salts that do not dissolve in water. When any water
is added, the ammonia in the salts can be reactivated causing it to
smell again and sometimes smell even worse. (More Info)
DOESN'T CLEANING YOUR CARPET TOO OFTEN DAMAGE IT?
Cleaning your carpet removes dirt/soil that acts like sandpaper
which dulls and scratches the fibers resulting in accelerated wear.
There is no such thing as cleaning your carpet too often unless the wrong method is used. The steam
extraction method, when performed correctly, is gentler than dry vacuuming
and is recommended by many carpet mills.
CAN YOU REMOVE RED WINE?
Red wine is probably one of the easiest stains to remove when left
alone for a professional to remove. A professional stain remove is applied
and the stain will disappear usually within a few minutes.
WHY DOES MY CARPET RESOIL FASTER NOW THAT IT IS OLDER?
When your carpet is manufactured it is often treated with a protective coating that resists soils and stains. Overtime this protection wears off and therefore it will resoil faster than when it was new. Improper cleaning of the carpet can also cause it to resoil faster. Many do-it-yourself carpet cleaning machines as well as some professionals will leave soap residues in the carpet that attract soil. Esteem’s process leaves absolutely no residue. To help your carpet stay cleaner longer, like when it was new, we recommend regular cleanings before you can see soil. We also recommend applying carpet protector after each cleaning to replace the worn off protection that was applied at the carpet mill.
