Carpet Cleaning Raleigh NC

Hot water extraction, also known as steam cleaning (although no steam is actually generated), is THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN CARPET according to nearly all carpet manufacturers.

This is the carpet cleaning method nearly all carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers suggest.

In addition, this is the only cleaning method that is truly classified as “deep cleaning”. All the other cleaning methods are really considered “light surface cleaning” or “interim cleaning” methods because they cannot remove soil that has worked its way deep into the pile. Also, all other methods leave large amounts of cleaning agent in the carpet after cleaning.

Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, recommends this method in its maintenance brochure, because its own research indicates that hot water extraction provides the best capability for cleaning.

Carpet Inspection

The best carpet cleaning Raleigh homes and businesses can get starts with an inspection of the carpet to determine its fiber content – nylon, olefin, wool, etc. This allows us to choose the appropriate pretreatment and cleaning solution for your carpet. Any spots, spills or damage areas that require special attention will be noted at this time.

Next we check traffic areas for fiber wear or abrasion. Once we’ve completed the carpet inspection, we are able to provide you with realistic expectations for your carpet cleaning.

Pretreatment for Cleaning

Pretreatment is the next stage of the carpet cleaning process. The carpet fibers are treated with a preconditioning agent to emulsify soils and general spots. Further emulsification of stubborn stains and that pesky orange North Carolina clay in traffic areas is accomplished with a professional groomer which agitates the preconditioner. Use of this carpet cleaning technique depends on the type and condition of the carpet.


After pretreatment, the carpet fibers are thoroughly flushed with a neutralizing rinse agent using the world’s most powerful extraction system to immediately vacuum it out. The super-heated water helps kill germs, and the neutralizing agent leaves the carpet fibers pH balanced. This simply means carpet fibers will remain clean, soft and only damp to the touch with no sticky residue that causes resoiling.

Spot Removal and Stain Removal

Specialty spot removal products may be employed on an individual stain-by-stain basis during the rinse phase of the carpet cleaning process. This is for any spots that did not respond to preconditioning treatment.

We insist that carpet cleaning Raleigh Area homes and businesses creates as many satisfied customers as possible. Unfortunately some carpet stains are permanent, but we will retreat with spot remover as many times as it takes to either remove the stain or be 100% confident that we have done our very best to remove it.
