  1. Pre-inspect the carpet with you to identify potential problems and your concerns and determine the carpet cleaning services that will be necessary
  2. Pre-vacuum to remove dry dirt and debris trapped deep within the carpet
  3. Pre-treat the problem areas and traffic lanes with conditioners and spotting agents to break down and release dirt, oil and animal problems
  4. Deep clean your valued carpet using state-of-the-art low moisture deep extraction equipment — the number one recommended cleaning method by carpet mills and manufacturers to maintain warranties
  5. Neutralize the carpet with a conditioning rinse that helps prevent re-soiling and leaves carpet feeling soft
  6. Post-inspect the carpet and re-treat or re-clean stubborn spots or stains
  7. Groom your freshly cleaned carpet with specialized pile brush to give your restored carpet that new look which also decreases drying time
Forgotten Spills, Spots & Stains

Sometimes spots and stains that have been hidden by soil are revealed after cleaning. These stains, which did not immediately cause discoloration, are often from spilled liquid containing colorless sugar that remained on the fibers. After long exposure to the air, they change to insoluble brown stains. The spots and stains may look like brownish discolorations, but often they remain unnoticed because of the accumulated soil covering them. Some food and drink stains may inevitably turn even darker from the necessary drying action after a thorough cleaning. Professional carpet cleaning services may be needed to remove these older stains.

Other Spots and Stains

  • Water soaking through and dissolving materials can cause browning
  • Wetted “Fugitive Dyes” can migrate from back of carpet, rug, or upholstery
  • Carpet fibers act as wicks causing moisture and contaminants to rise to the surface
  • Discoloration can occur when using wrong cleaning compounds and procedures than can make areas even more noticeable (See “Word of Caution” below), which is why it is a good idea to call your professional carpet cleaning company to assist in removing stains and smells from the carpet

Lessen Possibility of Spot and Stain Damage

  • Take immediate action
  • Thoroughly absorb all moisture and contaminant
  • When possible cover with thick, clean, preferably white or color-fast absorbent material
  • Weigh it down: moisture and contaminant will wick up into absorbent material
  • Keep replacing with fresh absorbent material and repeat as needed
  • Call your IICRC* Certified Firm and IICRC* Certified professional cleaning company to learn how to remove the spot safely with carpet cleaning services before it becomes a permanent stain
  • Professional cleaning services and treatment may ultimately be needed
WORDS OF CAUTION: Some over-the-counter spot lifters, cleaners, disinfectants and solutions that are supposed to address “pet memories” (urine, feces, vomit, fur balls, etc.) may cause discoloration of carpet or textile furnishings. They may even change the cleanable “spot” into a permanent “stain.” Call your carpet cleaning company for advice.
