Carpet Cleaning and Restoration Services

Carpet is the number 1 flooring investment in most of our homes, and to protect that investment you need to understand that today’s carpet manufacturers REQUIRE regular professional cleaning to maintain their warranties. (See sample warranty information below)

USA Carpet Cleaning is an (IICRC) Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and
Restoration Certification – certified master cleaning company.

We use “Truck Mounted HOT Water Extraction” the number 1 recommended carpet cleaning technique recommended by the IICRC, the CRC “Carpet Research Institute”, and the top carpet manufacturers in the industry.

Truck mounted machines offer greater power and suction so your carpets will stay cleaner longer and dry faster.

Sometimes it’s better (and cheaper) to try to restore and clean carpet – than to replace it,
and it’s always a lot cheaper to maintain the carpet investment you already have. CarpetCleaningGroup2

The principles of carpet cleaning are listed in the S100 Standard and
Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning, last published by the IICRC in 2002.

The principles of carpet cleaning include:

  • Dry Soil Removal – thorough vacuuming using an upright vacuum with brush agitation and high-efficiency double-lined collection bag, or a final filter, to remove up to 99% of particles at 1 micron.
  • Soil Suspension – This involves the application of properly specified, formulated and mixed preconditioning agents designed to separate soil from fibers.

There are four fundamentals involved in soil suspension:

  1. application of preconditioning chemicals;
  2. using heat or temperature to speed chemical reactions;
  3. agitation for proper chemical distribution,
  4. and providing dwell time so that chemical reactions can be completed before soil extraction is attempted. The acronym “CHAT” makes the fundamentals of soil suspension easy to remember.
  • Soil Extraction – Any method of cleaning must physically remove soils if it is to be successful. Soil removal takes place with absorption, wet vacuuming, rinsing, and even dry vacuuming. The most popular method for soil removal among professionals is hot water extraction.
  • Grooming, as necessary – Grooming has little to do with physical soil removal; however, it is needed to eliminate pile distortion and matting, to properly distribute additives, such as carpet protectors, and to create an even appearance for your inspection.
  • Drying – Damp carpet resoils rapidly, creates potential for slip-fall problems and ultimately, can grow bacteria with associated odor.

Residential Carpet Cleaning

The #1 question the (IICRC) gets asked:
“How often should I get my carpets cleaned?”

Answer: Frequently used carpet should be professionally cleaned by a qualified technician at least annually – perhaps a little longer interval for infrequently used carpet and even sooner for carpet in homes occupied by respiratory sensitive or allergic persons; or in homes with indoor pets.

The following chart from the IICRC S100 Standard and Reference Guide for
Professional Carpet Cleaning
serves as a guideline for recommending cleaning
frequencies for carpet. They consider traffic, soil rating, vacuuming schedules,
spot cleaning schedules, and professional interim and restorative cleaning.
