    Frequently Asked Questions

    The manual scrub wand is a good cleaning tool for cleaning lightly soiled carpet. When cleaning more heavily soiled carpet, the wand becomes a ‘beast of burden.’ Cleaning results depend upon the strength, stamina, and technique of the person working the wand. Cleaning heavily soiled carpets with a scrub wand is ‘hard labor.’ The repetitive motion of scrubbing back and forth is extremely strenuous and fatiguing. An individual can not scrub long enough to effectively clean your carpets.

    First and foremost the Rotovac is an electric power scrubbing tool. Comparing the Rotovac to a wand is like comparing a skill saw to a hand saw. We have converted a back and forth manual task to a much easier and more efficient rotary mechanized operation. Which makes more cleaning passes per minute than is possible with a manual scrub wand. In addition, the cleaning passes are from all directions rather than just back and forth. This is what produces better cleaning results for you.

    Does the Rotovac work on all types of carpet?
    The Rotovac has a carpet pile height adjustment wheel which allows it to work on all installed over pad carpet, and most commercial glue downs.

    What is the dry time of the Rotovac compared to a wand?
    The Rotovac on average leaves the carpet about 20 x drier when compared to a manual scrub wand under similar conditions.

    Why should I have my carpets cleaned?
    There are many reasons to have your carpet and upholstery cleaned:
    Health- Carpeting and fabrics not cleaned and properly maintained have the potential to cause a variety of health problems inside the home or work place.
    Life of your carpet- can be greatly extended by simple routine professional cleaning.
    Appearance- maintain the original look and luster of your carpet with regularly scheduled cleanings.
    How often should I have my furniture cleaned?
    The EPA currently has issued no guidelines on the recommended cleaning frequency for upholstery. Until such a guideline has been issued, our company recommends that you have your upholstery cleaned every other time your carpet is cleaned. Example: if your carpets get cleaned every six months, your upholstery should be cleaned once a year.

    Should I vacuum before the carpet cleaner arrives?
    Yes, vacuuming is essential to the longevity of your carpet. You should vacuum your carpet as often as possible.

    Do you move furniture?
    When necessary we will move and replace small furniture in its original position.

    *We will not move musical instruments, grandfather clocks, most beds, full china hutches, full bookshelves, entertainment centers, pool tables…our technicians reserve the right not to move any piece of furniture or household object that they do not feel comfortable with.

    Should I move anything?
    Yes, you should remove from the areas being cleaned, all nick knack and breakables.

    How long will it take for my carpet or furniture to dry?

    Our dry times typically range from 2 – 6 hours. Dry times can be affected by many factors including weather, humidity, and airflow.

    How long before I can walk on my carpet?
    You can walk on your carpet immediately but it is recommended that you limit traffic until completely dry.

    Are the products you use safe?
    Yes, we use the #1 line of cleaning products in the world. This allows us to guarantee the highest quality job available at any price! Our products are: nontoxic, safe for pets & children, biodegradable, and phosphate free.

    Are your technicians experienced?
    Yes, our technicians attend courses, seminars, and schools across the country to keep current on the latest in cleaning technologies.

    Will your services help my allergies?
    Yes, having your carpet and furniture cleaned removes pollutants and makes for a more friendly breathing environment.

    Will you remove all my stains?
    Let me start by defining the difference between a spot and a stain: a spot is any foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) that is removable by standard cleaning methods.(The foreign material is on or around the carpet fiber) A stain is foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) on carpet that is not usually removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material has penetrated ‘soaked into’ fiber and has changed or damaged the fiber itself) Some stains may be very difficult or impossible to remove.

    Does cleaning your carpet make it wear out faster?
    No, actually dirt acts as an abrasive when trapped in your carpet or fabrics and should be removed to reduce wear.

    Does your process restore the original feel of my carpet?
    Yes, our process leaves your carpet fresh, clean, residue free and soft to the touch.

    Should I have a fabric protector applied after cleaning?

    Yes, most carpet manufacturers recommend that you reapply protector after professional cleaning to restore the original stain resistance. Some manufacturers even require it as part of the warranty on the carpet.

    My carpet is really old, should I replace it?
    With the cost of replacing carpet being as expensive as it is today, it is always best to try having the carpet professionally cleaned first. It is far less costly and may make a world of difference.

    Which provides better indoor air quality: hardwood or carpet?
    Carpet actually acts like a ‘filter’ trapping pollutants which are then removed by professional carpet cleaning. As long as a regular cleaning schedule is maintained, carpet provides much better indoor air quality than hardwood.

    Carpet cleaning is important to maintaining the overall comfort and monetary value of a property. Any type of flooring is an investment for the property owner. Keeping the investment in the best shape takes a professional, but without proper certification, the consumer cannot be guaranteed of proper education and training on updated techniques used in maintaining the value of the flooring.

    There are health concerns that can arise from any unsanitary environment, and it can be surprising to learn what survives in and under the flooring. Allergens that are left behind can lead to serious health problems for family members and even household pets. Proper techniques can reduce or eliminate allergens in the environment, improving the health of the occupants.

    Great strides have been made in technologies used in carpet-care. Today there are only a few basic wet and dry methodologies accepted by the industry leaders. Ensuring consistently high standards means understanding how the certifying body works to guarantee better results at lower costs.

  3. Pet odor carpet cleaning Killeen Tx

    For many dog and cat owners, pet odor removal from carpets is an unfortunate fact of life. Puppies and kittens have a tendency to mess up flooring quite a bit before they are properly trained, and by the time they’re going outside or in the litter box, the floor may resemble a warzone. There are, however, a few ways a homeowner can wipe out the smells and stains that animals leave behind. In some cases, a professional may be needed to handle a particularly difficult and soiled situation.

    The first thing to do when attempting pet odor removal is to locate the problem area on the carpet. This is often easier said than done, as dark flooring can make the area practically invisible. If finding the spot is too hard to do with the naked eye, illuminate the area with a black light. This type of bulb will highlight areas where Fluffy or Spot have been doing their business and will make give a starting spot when it comes to tackling the problem. Another way to track down soiled spots is to watch how other animals track through the home. If there are multiple dogs or cats in the house, they will stop and thoroughly investigate and sniff any area where other animals have evacuated.  Cleaning these spots thoroughly can mitigate the problem.

    It’s important to fix the issue as soon as it is detected, for a couple of reasons. Animals have a tendency to use the bathroom where they detect the scent of urine or feces, so the problem could snowball and training the pup or kitten will be that much more difficult. Pet odor removal must also be done immediately because if the soiled patch of carpet is allowed to sit for too long, it will require more dramatic methods to get rid of it. If the animals are allowed to soil the flooring for weeks at a time, and the fabric is not cleaned thoroughly every time, the carpet may need to be replaced, which is significantly more expensive and obnoxious than dealing with the issue in the first place.

    The best way to approach pet odor removal is to clean from the outside of the stain in. Starting from the center may push the stain out further and deeper into the flooring. Scrub inward with a bristle brush and paper towels. Use the paper towels to absorb liquid, and don’t scrub with them, as they may tear and get intertwined with carpet fibers.

    Natural pet odor removal substances include vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, lemon or club soda. Rubbing alcohol can be applied directly to the area and blotted up once it sits for a few minutes. Vinegar, baking soda or lemon juice mixed with water can also be applied this way. If the problem is more widespread or doesn’t respond to these gentle methods, consider purchasing an enzyme solution from the pet store. These solutions digest the proteins found in dog and cat urine and fecal matter.

    However, even that is often not enough to neutralize the problem, especially with more potent feline urine. If the smell remains after a few attempts to clean it, hire a professional to sanitize the flooring. This is a solution that is cost effective and quick, and will leave the carpet immaculate.

    You’re ready to have your wall to wall carpeting professionally cleaned and want to get the best job for the best price, right?

    You may have received a coupon in a Val Pak or via direct mail, advertising $6.95 per room! What a great deal, huh? How can they afford to charge such a low price? As a reputable business owner who has been serving this area, I can tell you with all certainty, THEY CAN’T! The gas alone, to get to your home would make this a losing proposition for the ‘company’. Then there are cleaning agents, set up and tear down time, and the actual job labor – a firm charging $6 or $9 a room would soon go broke.

    How/why are they charging this price?
    The answer is simple – Bait & Switch! Here is a typical scenario: Once inside your home, you are informed that the advertised price is for ‘basic steam cleaning’ in other words, clear water. Take it from me; you cannot properly clean even a lightly soiled carpet without proper cleaning agents, such as pre-conditioner, emulsifier & various spot cleaners. Oh, they have these products on their truck, but if they USE them on your carpets, your $6 a room price just went up to $75. Then, there’s the high pressure add on sales (Scotchguard tm, deodorizing) as well as a charge for moving any furniture. Throw in the ‘nominal travel charge’ and the 2 rooms you thought you would be paying $12 to clean have just cost you $300, not to mention the lousy job performed by the inexperienced technician you’ve been sent! These companies hire right off the street and pay on a commission basis. Commission on what? On all of the up sell, of course! They’re routinely sued, go out of business, and resurface under a new name. Save yourself the trouble!

    We pride ourselves on high quality Professional Carpet Cleaning and have trained & skilled technicians. You pay the price you are quoted! Our sole purpose is to please you, as well as extend the life of your carpeting with a professional & thorough job! Don’t be taken in by Bait & Switch companies!
