Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning
Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet. Below are the 7 steps SERVPRO takes for carpet cleaning.
Identify types of fibres to be cleaned as well as the type of soil. Decide safest and most effective product and method to clean carpet.
Furniture will be moved and drapes are pinned or clamped to prevent them from touching the wet carpet.
3) Equipment and products are staged inside the property and placed on a protective floor covering.
4) Pre-treatment and spot removal
Areas needing extra attention will be pre-treated and given additional agitation prior to the chosen cleaning method. Ex. high traffic and heavily soiled/affected areas or stains.
Based on the situation, the chosen method of cleaning will be performed to strip your carpet of any remaining soils. As the process progress, an air mover is placed to expedite the drying of cleaned surfaces.
6) Soil Protection
Similar to car waxing, we will apply protectants to the carpet or rug surface to prevent future soils from embedding within your newly cleaned carpet.
Furniture pads or blocks are placed under the legs to prevent stains and allow air flow under furniture for drying. Note that we will place courtesy mats and proper traffic lane paper at transition points to further protect the cleaned carpet.

Preventative MaintenanceCarpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.
IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.
