Our 10-Step Pure Green Carpet Cleaning Process
1. Carpet Cleaning Pre-Inspection
Our certified technician, never a subcontractor, will arrive on time and in uniform to perform a thorough pre-cleaning inspection with you to evaluate your specific soiling conditions, stains, and/or odor sources. We will perform a high-intensity UV light inspection to detect bacteria from pets, humans, or other allergens. You will be given a clear evaluation of potentially permanent stains, any special conditions or needs, and the expected cleaning results. Only the requested work will be done and we require your signed approval before getting started. No surprises or hidden costs when the job is done.
2. Protecting Your Flooring & Sealing Our Entry Point
Protective guards and cotton floor covers are used to protect all flooring while we work. A temporary door seal is placed around the opening of our entry point to keep in your air conditioning or heat and your curious pets.
3. Moving & Replacing Light Furniture
Light sofas, chairs, tables, and smaller furnishings are carefully moved and replaced on protective tabs. Items to be moved are at the technicians’ discretion.
4. Apply Organic Pre-Cleaner with Bio-Enzyme
Our patented organic eco-friendly, green pre-cleaner with added bio-enzyme solution is heated to 180° then applied to the surface to emulsify and break down embedded soil, spots, and odor sources for a more thorough cleaning.
5. Pre-Groom Matted Carpet Pile
When needed, a professional carpet groomer is used to further loosen soil, spots, and matted walk areas or collapsed pile.
6. Truck-Mounted Steam Extraction & Purified Water System
Each truck is outfitted with the most powerful, state-of-the-art 250° truck-mounted steam extraction equipment powered by the truck’s 340 hp engine. This helps leave your carpets dry in about 2-6 hours on average. Our water purification system boosts our zero-residue deep rinse process to deliver the best deep cleaning results on even the most heavily soiled and stained carpets, including removing harmful toxic residues left behind by the last carpet cleaner. Every carpet we clean is left pH-balanced to ensure no sticky residue is left behind. This leaves your carpet feeling soft and fresh when dry.
7. Apply Green Certified Disinfectant & Deodorizer
Carpet cleaning, or rinsing the fiber, alone at any temperature DOES NOT kill or remove all bacteria, allergens, mold, or other contaminants. In fact, improper carpet cleaning is known to cause health problems in people and pets that come into contact with the pile. That’s why on every carpet we clean, we apply a liberal post-cleaning application of our 100% non-toxic eco-friendly disinfectant and deodorizer to ensure a complete deep clean, total bacteria and allergen kill, and odor elimination.
8. Apply GREEN Guard Stain Protection
After the disinfectant and deodorizer application, we apply a liberal application of our GREEN Guard polymer encapsulator soil and stain carpet protector. This will enhance vacuuming in between cleanings, protect against permanent stains, and lengthen your carpet’s life.
9. Groom & Set Carpet Pile
Once the carpets have been thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, deodorized, and protected, your carpet is groomed with a professional pile groomer to leave the carpet pile standing tall when we leave.
10. Post Cleaning Inspection
Once everything has been completed, our technician will walk through your home or business with you to point out the cleaning results and to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the results. We provide you with plastic shoe covers, an aftercare cleaning and spotting guide, and one free bottle of our green stain remover for any “uh-oh” moments in between cleanings.

Blackened walk areas and some stains may or may not fully lift; these will require additional cleaning steps and/or visits at an additional cost. While every attempt is made to fully remove stains some stains may wick back up after drying.
Extended Set Up Fee
If your home or business is on the 2rd level or higher or is an extended distance from where the truck-mounted equipment is set up, you may be subject to an additional charge, not to exceed $75.

Carpet Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Clean Carpet?
To clean carpets, we use a truck-mounted hot water extraction, or steam cleaning, method. Our truck-mounted steam cleaning method ensures the most thorough spot and dirt removal from your carpets. Using a specially designed water purifier on our trucks, the hot water works with the eco-friendly pre-spray to lift the toughest stains and deepest dirt. Then, using the truck’s engine to power it, the truck-mount uses its powerful suction to extract the dirt, allergens, and 95% of the moisture.
Truck-mounted steam cleaning is the only cleaning method recommended by carpet manufacturers and approved to keep your carpet warranty intact.
What Products Are Used To Clean My Carpets? Are They Safe For Kids & Pets?
All of our service trucks are equipped with the best and most effective 100% eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning products. We take pride in knowing that the products used in your home or business are safe for people, especially children, the elderly, and people with allergies or other respiratory conditions; pets, including birds; and the environment. All products are certified green.
If you have a question regarding any of the products used in your home, our service trucks and office have a copy of the MSDS sheets available for your review.
We will move items that can safely be moved and put them back in place on protective tabs. Items that are generally moved by our technicians include: sofas (excluding sectionals), chairs, coffee tables, and end tables. All breakable items must be removed from these items before our arrival. Several items will not be moved, including but not limited to: beds, dressers, entertainment centers, pianos, pool tables, or other fragile furnishings.
I Have Gray / Black Stains Around The Edges Of My Rooms. Can You Remove Them?
These stains are commonly referred to as filtration or draft stains. These are caused by the dirt and dust settling around the edges of the room where there is little to no traffic. We will do our best to remove them fully during the first cleaning. However, depending on the severity and length of time between professional cleanings, they may not be fully removed. At a minimum, these stains will be lessened in appearance and will continue to lift after each professional cleaning.
Do You Guarantee Stain & Spot Removal?
We cannot guarantee that all spots or stains will be removed from your carpets. There are some substances that can permanently discolor carpet fibers, such as bleach, red dyes, and oil. Other factors can affect stain removal, such as age and material of the carpet, age of the stain, products used to clean the stain previously, and source of the stain. During the initial walkthrough, our technician will try to determine the likelihood of specific spot removal and let you know the expected outcome. Most spots do come out with our carpet cleaning process, but if some do not, their appearance will at least be lessened.
I've Had My Carpet Cleaned, But Some Spots Have Reappeared. What Can I Do?
Although we do our best to remove most spots from the carpet, sometimes you may notice the spots reappearing during the drying process. This is referred to as wicking. This happens when a substance is removed from the carpet pile, but comes up from the carpet backing as it dries. Unfortunately, since we cannot see through to the carpet backing and pad, we cannot guarantee this will not happen.
How Long Will It Take To Clean My Carpets?
Each job is unique, and our technicians take their time to explain our process to you and to ensure the most thorough cleaning. On average, you can expect the cleaning crew to be on location for about 2 hours for smaller jobs (500 sq. ft. or less), 3-4 hours for mid-sized jobs (600-800 sq. ft.), or 4-5 hours for larger jobs (900+ sq. ft.). If there are special requirements for your job, such as extended setup or pet damage, please allow for an extra hour or so. If you need to leave during our visit, we are insured and bonded and can lock up your home once we are finished. If you have any special time constraints, please let our office staff know at the time of scheduling.
How Long Will My Carpets Take To Dry?
Once your cleaning has been completed, your carpets will be damp to touch, not soaking wet as with some other companies. They will typically be completely dry in about 2-6 hours, depending on if pet treatments were needed and the humidity level. The cleaned areas can be used immediately after cleaning, but we recommend wearing socks and placing towels or area rugs where wet carpets meet hard surfaces. You can also speed up the drying process by using floor or ceiling fans to help air circulation.
