Carpet and Rug Cleaning

9/3/2019 (Permalink)

As you may know, SERVPRO of South Garland is widely known for handling firewater and mold damages professionally and effectively. But, what some people forget is that we offer numerous of other services to home and business owners as well!

Carpet and rug cleaning is a service that we deal with on a day-to-day basis. Even the highest-quality carpet and rugs can show soiling over time. It is important to clean your carpets and rugs regularly, especially ones that have a high traffic rate. As a general rule, you should have your carpets and rugs professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months. However, children and pets are huge factors that contribute to ware and tare and staining of your carpets and may require a more frequent cleaning. The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification) states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming regularly is key to proper care and maintenance. However, just vacuuming every once in a while is not enough to get a good deep down clean.

We offer a range of specialized cleaning methods such as:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry
  • Dry Cleaning: when color-fastness is an issue
