Which method of carpet cleaning is best?
For residential carpet cleaning, we recommend Hot Water Injection Extraction, commonly called Steam Cleaning. It employs the best method of flushing out dirt and detergent residues. It is also the method recommended by most carpet manufacturers.
For commercial installations, Hot Water Extraction is also recommended. However, because of access constraints and quick drying requirements, we also use Encapsulation Very Low Moisture system, commonly called Dry Cleaning. We can discuss your needs to determine which method suits you and your carpet best.

can you get all the marks out of my carpet?
We certainly try! In most cases when we leave all the marks are gone. We do, however, occasionally come across a stain which is permanent. We can discuss other possibilities if this is the case. A good idea is to attend to spills as they occur, as most spillages can be easily removed if attended to quickly.
how long does it take for the carpet to dry after you have professionally cleaned it?
Heat helps, but airflow is the biggest factor in drying of the carpet. Open the house, or commercial installation, and allow as much fresh air to circulate through the building as possible. We strive to remove as much moisture as possible during the cleaning process. Good moving airflow will do the rest in a matter of hours, in most cases.
what does it cost?
