The Superior Carpet Cleaning Process
Step 1: Inspect the Carpet
The first thing your carpet cleaning technician will do upon arrival is to thoroughly inspect the carpeting in which he/she will be cleaning. They will need to identify what kind of carpet fibers they will be working with in order to choose the best method of cleaning for your specific carpeting. All fibers can be divided into two categories: natural and synthetic.
Step 2: Identifying the Carpet Type
A list of natural fibers that we service are: wool, cotton, silk and sisal / jute fibers. Natural fibers are derived from living organisms such as animals and plants. They are also sensitive to moisture and harsh cleaning products so these fibers must be treated with great care so to insure no damages will incur. You can rest assured that our technicians at Superior Carpet Cleaning have been trained and are well equipped to handle these delicate fibers.
A list of synthetic fibers that we service are: nylon, polyester, olefin and acrylic fibers. Synthetic fibers are made mostly of by-products of the coal and petroleum industries, which produce plastics. Synthetic fibers being very durable have excellent strength and are non-absorbent so the carpeting dries very quickly.
Step 3: Remove Loose Dirt
Once the carpet fibers have been identified the next step involves the four basic fundamentals of carpet cleaning. Ask yourself the process involved in washing day to day items such as clothes, dishes or even hair, most people would say first wash, then rinse, and then dry. You may not think of it but many times as a first step you would need to remove the loose and large soil such as caked on mud on a pair of blue jeans or scraping leftover food on plates before washing. As you may have guessed, the same process for cleaning everyday objects is also followed in the four basic carpet cleaning fundamentals. Because dry soil is easier to remove dry than when wet it is the first and most important step in the carpet cleaning process and should never be skipped.
Step 4: The Wash Cycle
The next function of carpet cleaning relates to the wash cycle. The purpose of this step is to remove the soil from the carpet fibers and hold it in suspension until it can be removed through cleaning. There are four ways to accomplish this and they involve the application of pre spray/carpet cleaning detergents, agitation/agitating carpet fibers, time/prespray dwell time, and heat/steam rinse.
Without the help from carpet cleaning detergents we would be doing little more than rinsing small amounts of soil from the carpet. Water, by itself, is not a good cleaner. Just like when washing clothes it is important to use the right detergent to release soil, carpeting needs the same. We at Superior Carpet Cleaning only use the best pre conditioning detergents on the market so your carpeting is left cleaner.
Step 5: Agitation
Once the pre treatment has been applied the next step is to agitate the carpet. We use a brush agitating method to better work in the the preconditioner and loosen the soil for maximum cleaning.
Step 6: Dwell Time
Dwell time is just important as the agitation, because all pre spray detergents have a set amount of time that it has to set/dwell on the carpeting to achieve best results. The pre-spray detergent that Superior Carpet Cleaning uses recommends 15 minutes dwell time, we choose to use the best detergents to insure fast expert results.
Common Carpet Cleaning Rip-Offs in Lexington & Richmond Ky
Below Superior Carpet Cleaning in Lexington & Richmond Kentucky would like to help warn you of 4 common carpet cleaning Rip-Offs.
Rip-Off #1 UNBELIEVABLY LOW PRICE
To some degree, all of us are attracted by low price because we want to work within a certain budget. But some carpet cleaners use price as the bait for their false and misleading advertising. They offer a cheap price–usually $10.00 per room–and then, once they’re in your home, they pressure you into buying “add-ons.” It’s as if you were buying a new car and found that the dealer was charging you extra for the brakes and head lights. Carpet cleaning is not as cheap as some unethical carpet cleaners would like you to believe.
Rip-Off #2: BAIT AND SWITCH
Dual process carpet cleaning describes the process of shampooing or heavy preconditioning, followed with hot water extraction cleaning. Unfortunately, unethical carpet cleaners often use dual process as a bait-and-switch technique.
Here’s how it’s done: first, they “bait” you with a basic cleaning (single process) at an unbelievably low price $10.00 per room. Then, when you call, they try to “switch” you to more expensive dual-process cleaning. If you don’t fall for their switch and choose their basic service, you’ll likely receive poor workmanship using little or no preconditioning and they will not guarantee their work.
Rip-Off #3: UNSUPPORTED CLAIMS. “THIS CLEANING METHOD IS THE BEST.”
You’ll read this in almost every carpet cleaning add. You’ll hear this from virtually every carpet cleaner. Remember this: the method that’s best for you is the method that achieves your goal. If you want a method that dries quickly, then a method that takes a long time to dry isn’t the best for you. So before you choose a carpet cleaner, identify your objectives. Then select the method that best reaches those objectives.
Rip-Off #4: OUTDATED BELIEFS. “HOT WATER DAMAGES YOUR CARPET.”
Years ago, many people believed this was true because their carpets were damaged by “technicians” who didn’t know how to properly clean using hot water. But today, we know it’s false. By washing and then rinsing your carpet with hot water, your carpet is thoroughly cleaned–in the same way that if a person who wash’s there clothes and then rinses off the dirt and detergent will be much cleaner than the clothes that were sponge cleaned only.
Obviously, each carpet cleaner will be biased towards his own method. And each method does have advantages. So I suggest you look to what carpet manufacturers say. Shaw Industries, the largest carpet manufacturer in the world, recommends only hot water extraction cleaning with a truck-mounted unit used by firms that are IICRC Certified.
