New carpet can improve the
appearance of any room, but how can carpet that is walked on every day continue
looking new? To keep your carpet clean, it's necessary to vacuum regularly with
a strong, well-functioning and properly-filtered vacuum cleaner. Unfortunately,
due to traffic, children, pets and normal wear, carpet fibers inevitably become
soiled, and a dull appearance results. And no matter how much you vacuum,
eventually you will need to call a professional.
Regular professional cleaning is
as important to your carpet as having a trained mechanic perform routine
tune-ups on your car. While your carpet may appear clean on the surface,
periodic cleaning by a certified technician can remove what you can't see and
help your carpet retain its fresh, beautiful appearance.
extraction, or steam-cleaning, is the most popular method of carpet-cleaning.
Highly efficient, hot-water extraction is simple to use and safe for most
carpets. It is sometimes referred to as steam-cleaning for the fine spray of
hot water used to apply
the cleaning formula and force dirt out of the carpet.
Hot-water extraction is the only common carpet-cleaning method classified as
deep-cleaning, and one of the few that does not leave large amounts of cleaning
solution in the carpet.
