The Carpet Cleaning Process

There is nothing more difficult than choosing the right carpet cleaner in Northern VA. There are many different companies using many different methods. With so many options how do you make the right choice?
The Absolute Carpet Care exclusive Hot Water Extraction Method, using truck-mounted equipment, Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (I.I.C.R.C.) certified technicians, and powerful cleaning agents make it the most effective and thorough extraction method in the industry. Absolute Carpet Care’s exclusive process begins with an all natural, hypo-allergenic pre-spray being applied to the carpet that begins to emulsify and break up the dirt and soils. Then, the 200-degree water and powerful suction extract deep down dirt, cleaning solution, and 95% of IICRC_LOGOmoisture for a fast drying time. It also removes dust mites, allergens, and other microscopic pollutants that collect in your carpet and can trigger allergies and other breathing problems

To follow up the cleaning, we apply turbofans to accelerate drying time and rake carpet fibers to restore the pile.

Maxim Advanced repels dirt and spills making it easier to care for your carpet. Maxim Advanced is the best soil protection for all types of carpet, as well as safe around family and pets. Maxim Advanced delivers its protection by forming a molecular shield around each carpet fiber. The shield lowers the surface energy of the carpet fibers causing them to repel liquid spills as well as dust and dirt. This helps keep dirt and stains from being ground in or absorbed by the fibers. Maxim Advanced protection is applied with air sprayers to ensure that every fiber is evenly coated. The area is then raked to allow deeper penetration. Maxim Advanced is undetectable and does not change the appearance or texture of the carpet or fabrics. It just offers the superior protection you would expect from any Absolute Carpet Care service we offer.

Carpet Cleaning Pet Contamination

We all love our pets but they occasionally have accidents. When these problems are not addressed quickly; you can end up with some unpleasant odors that are very difficult to remove. That’s when you need an odor removal expert. Absolute Carpet Care has the know-how and professional products to remove complex odor problems at their source. While guaranteeing complete odor removal is not possible, we will provide you with different options depending on the severity of the damage.

Light to Moderate
In this situation, the pet urinated on the carpet only once in each location. Urine will not have permeated heavily into carpet pad and subfloor structure. In this case, we treat the contaminated areas topically with a two part system to attempt to alleviate both the stain and the odor. This is followed by a deep soil carpet extraction.
Moderate to Severe
This is a contamination where the pet has repeatedly used the same spot. The carpet backing, pad, and floor have been saturated with urine. When the carpet is dry you can feel the sticky, oily residue left on the carpet. Contamination of this level requires several more steps. We would first pull back the carpet and remove contaminated padding. We would then seal the subfloor with an odor barrier. We would then treat carpet with an odor modifier to attack odorous materials. We would replace padding and reinstall the carpet before completing the treatment with deep soil extraction.

Carpet Cleaning Stain Removal

Absolute Carpet Care’s deep cleaning process is highly effective on everyday dirt and soil buildup but no matter how careful you are you are bound to have some stubborn stains. Absolute Carpet Care offers a wide variety of stain removers to eliminate most spots. We offer a filtration soil remover to remove dark lines along walls and behind doors, a stain remover that can eliminate or improve red wine and juice spills. We also have spotting agents to remove ink, gum, rust, grease, and many more spots. If stain removal is not possible we can provide you with an estimate to do a bonded insert or “patch” on the stained area.

Specialty Rug Cleaning

Oriental rugs are beautiful and expensive handmade pieces. Absolute Carpet Care’s qualified technicians will give them the proper care they deserve. Oriental rugs are generally handmade with natural fibers and dyes. This requires them to be treated with special care using cleaning agents with the correct PH balance to prevent browning, color fading, discolorations, etc. We also adjust cleaning temperatures and pressures to meet the special requirements of each type of rug. Absolute Carpet Care services specialty, Oriental, and Turkish rugs of many types of fibers including cotton, wool, and silk, as well as a variety of synthetics, such as fringed synthetics, bound synthetics, braided rugs etc. We use a whole line of cleaning agents and stain removers specially formulated to safely and effectively clean more delicate fibers. We are available for pick-up and delivery.

Carpet Cleaning FAQ

Q. Should I reapply Maxim Advanced when I have my
carpets cleaned?

A. Yes, reapplication is recommended for heavy traffic patterns. Regular household conditions that cause carpets to need cleaning (for example, dirt and spills in the carpet) can contribute to a gradual “wearing off” of the protectant. Cleaning alone will not remove Maxim Advanced. Reapplication will ensure that the ease of the soil removal is maintained.

Q. How do I need to prepare for my carpets to be cleaned?

A. You only need to remove small breakables and knick knacks on the furniture you would like to have moved. Our cleaning technicians are able to move most furniture you request and replace it to its original location protecting it with plastic squares or styrofoam blocks. (additional charges may apply)

Q. Should I be concerned about chemical or detergent residue remaining in the carpet?

A. No, some cleaners use a soapy detergent followed only by extraction, leaving a residue that causes rapid re-soiling. We use safe biodegradable detergent pre-spray, followed by a textile rinse that leaves carpet virtually residue free.

Q. I had someone out already and they said it couldn’t be cleaned?

A. We love hearing that! With Absolute Carpet Care’s exclusive process and our wide array of stain removers, we can remove much more of your carpets problems than your average carpet cleaners.
