Our Complete Deep Clean, Deodorize, Sanitize, and Stain Protection Process
1. Carpet Cleaning Pre-Inspection
We arrive on-time, in uniform and perform a thorough pre-cleaning inspection with you to evaluate your specific carpet, rug, upholstery, or hard floor surface soiling conditions, stains, or odor sources. In addition: we perform a Free forensic UV light and Hydrosensor inspection on every job. We only perform the work you request and get your signed approval before any work is performed.
2. We Protect Your Walls, Flooring & Landscape
We use protective corner & furniture guards, along with cotton floor covers to protect all your flooring and landscape areas while we work.
3. We Seal Your Entry Door
We temporarily install a patented door seal around the opening of the entry door of your home or office. This helps keep hot or cold air, insects, birds, etc. outside while we work.
4. We Move and Replace Light Furniture
Light sofas, chairs, coffee tables, and end tables are carefully moved and replaced. We then protect with disposable blocks and clear plastic tabs*.
5. Apply Our Organic Pre-Cleaner with Enzyme
Our patented organic 100% Non-toxic pre-cleaner with added enzyme solution is heated to 180 degrees and then applied to the carpet, area rug, fabric, or hard floor, then let dwell 5 to 10 minutes to loosen and dissolve deeply embedded soil and stains along with the bacteria and allergens.
6. Pre-Groom Matted Carpet Pile
When needed, carpet walk areas are pre-groomed or raked to raise matted or collapsed pile.
7. Truck-Mounted 250-degree Deep Steam Extraction System
We invest in the most powerful state-of-the-art 250-degree truck-mounted steam extraction cleaning system to ensure the most thorough deep clean. Our truck-mount deep cleaning system is powered by our service trucks 340 hp engine and equipped with a rinse water purification system that safely boosts our zero residue deep rinse process to deliver the most restorative deep cleaning results on even the most heavily soiled and stained carpets, including removing the harmful toxic residue the last carpet cleaner left behind. Your carpet dries quickly in 1 to 8 hours.
8. Apply Our GREEN Certified Carpet Sanitizer and Deodorizer
THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN CARPET CLEANING — Carpet cleaning (rinsing the fiber) alone at any temperature ‘DOES NOT’ kill all bacteria, allergens, white mold, or other contaminants. In fact; improper carpet cleaning is known to cause health problems in people and pets that come in contact with the pile. Every Carpet We Clean, we apply a liberal post-cleaning application of our 100% non-toxic eco-friendly sanitizer and deodorizer, TRIPLE PLUS+ to ensure a complete deep clean, total bacterial/allergen kill, and odor elimination.

Compare methods of carpet cleaning to see why carpet manufacturers’ now “require” an IICRC and CRI-SOA certified professional steam carpet cleaning every 6 to 18 months to keep the carpet warranty in full effect:
“Basic Clean” Cheap Bonnet Chemical Dry Carpet Cleaning: Simply smears soil and bacteria across the surface of the carpet and cleans nothing. The stains come back in weeks and the money spent is wasted. Repeated dry bonnet cleaning of residential carpet can create the pile and soils to become toxic and can leave damaging swirl marks. This method will void the carpet manufacturers’ warranty.
“Standard Clean” Low-Powered Portable Equipment: The equipment exhausts contaminated warm, moist, dirty air & odors back into your home, leaves harmful and pile damaging, residual soap and detergent residue on the carpet pile, leaves the carpet wet for days turning the carpet into a “mold farm”, dumps the dirty water into your septic or plumbing system and they are found to create more bacteria than they remove from the carpet. Over time the carpet can become full of harmful toxins that can harm small children and pets. This method can void your carpet manufacturers’ warranty.
“Thoroughly Clean” Truck-Mounted Hot Water (steam) Extraction Cleaning: This equipment provides the high temperatures above 200° to over 250-degrees (the hotter the better), high water pressure (400 to 500 psi), and the large vacuum blowers needed to maximize soil, contaminant, and rinse water removal. The EPA, CRI-Laboratories, and carpet manufacturers’ research over the last 55 years has found that the truck-mounted hot water extraction system provides the best capability for the most thorough deep cleaning and faster dry time.

“Clean Choice is the only way to go. I went through several companies before I found them. They do a fantastic job every time.”Tim Savalina in Pasadena, MD
“Clean Choice has cleaned the carpets in two of my houses and I have been amazed at how great they look. The carpets, both over 10 years old, look brand new. I was sure I was going to have to replace them but decided to try and have them cleaned first and I am so glad I did. Keith is extremely passionate about his job and very dedicated to providing the best service possible. I have already referred them to several of my friends and will continue to do so in the future.”Elizabeth Bare in Columbia, MD
