Carpet Cleaning Services

Every carpet cleaning job that we service is unique and requires a process that we have spent years perfecting to achieve top quality, consistent results. Whether we’re restoring your carpets or cleaning them for maintenance, you can depend on us. All of our cleaning solutions are family and pet safe.



Many homeowners don’t realize that carpets act as a filter in the home. This means that they trap dead skin cells, body oils, pet dander, odors, household allergens, dust, dirt, and other contaminants. When carpets are not cleaned routinely, these contaminants build up and lower your indoor air quality, which causes potential health issues. Promoting a healthy living environment is essential to protecting your family from illnesses.

Regular cleanings greatly extend the life of your investments. When dirt and grime is allowed to build up in carpet, the fibers become more easily damaged as you walk across them. You’ll be amazed at how professional carpet cleaning services can restore the original color and texture of your carpets. We recommend having them thoroughly cleaned every year depending on usage/living conditions.

Five Star Carpet Cleaning Process

Our carpet cleaning process is one that we have perfected over the years through ongoing education, research, and experience. Our primary method for residential carpet cleaning is hot water extraction (steam cleaning). However, we do also offer low moisture bonnet cleaning for situations where using steam cleaning equipment isn’t feasible, such as high-rise apartment buildings or condos.

Residential Carpet Cleaning

The first thing that we’ll do upon arrival is walk through the areas to be cleaned. At this time, we’ll ask you some questions, as well as answer any of your own questions that you may have. This would be a great time to point out any special concerns that you may have about certain areas. If you happen to know exactly what has caused certain spots or stains, please let us know at this time so that we can properly address them. Once the inspection is completed, we will ensure that you know the final price before any work begins. We’ll never use high pressure sales tactics or bait and switch pricing.

We recommend that you vacuum your carpet before our arrival. However, if you’re unable to it’s not a problem because we always vacuum prior to wet cleaning! Regularly vacuuming helps to remove the dry abrasive soils that wear down your carpet. Vacuuming is our first step because we want to remove as much dry particulate soil as possible. This enables our safe cleaning solutions to better focus on breaking up the soils that have bonded to the carpet fibers.

Next, we will spot treat any tough spots or stains using our powerful yet safe spotting agents. We have great success removing spots like soda spills, grease, oil, paint, kool-aid, wine, and other common carpet dribbles. Next, we’ll apply our soap free carpet cleaning solution to the walkways and traffic areas of the carpet. *Note: If you’ve used any products that you’ve bought at the store to attempt to remove any spots or stains, please make your technician aware of that. It can change how we approach the spot or stain.

Steam Cleaning

Our fourth carpet cleaning step is to rinse the carpet using our powerful truck mounted equipment. Our carpet cleaning machine produces water temperatures of 210-230 degrees. This is great for removing stubborn soil, but also can help to sanitize the carpet. Our cleaning tool immediately extracts the broken-up soil and cleaning solution, recovering it to a holding tank in our vehicle (no residue!). We then do “dry strokes” to remove as much excess moisture from the carpet as possible. If the carpets are heavily soiled or contain pet hair buildup, we will mechanically scrub the fibers with our counter rotating brush machines prior to rinsing to ensure the deepest clean possible.

Speed Dry

After the steam cleaning step, we have small carpet drying fans that we can place in the areas we’ve cleaned. These fans significantly improve the dry time so that you can use your carpet sooner. Until the carpet has completely dried, we recommend that you use caution when walking from damp carpet to hard surfaces such as tile or wood because it may be slippery. Typical dry times are within 3-6 hours. Rainy days (excess humidity) will extend the dry time.

Groom & Protect

If you have chosen to have your carpet protected after your cleaning, this is when we will apply the protector and groom it into the fibers. Please allot for additional dry times for this service because the product has to air dry for proper adhesion to the carpet fibers.
