How is your process eco-friendly?
We're IICRC certified carpet cleaners using a green/non-toxic pH-balanced carpet cleaning process and select products that are safe for children and pets. We've also incorporated customer requests and offer hot water extraction only, as well as vinegar cleaning (for those who prefer this popular cleaning solution) as carpet cleaning options, upon your request.

Do you treat pet odors and stains?
Yes, and we have a tip for immediate in-home prep/treatment, too!
What special treatments can you use for stains or odors?
First, a specially heated, proprietary cleaning agent is misted in to break down and emulsify embedded dirt or stains. This solution is allowed to dwell in the surface for a short time. Next, the carpet is rinsed with a hot water solution, and simultaneously extracted by our ultra high-powered vacuum system. We have additional steps and techniques ready for your tough problem areas >
Are your technicians certified? How experienced are they?

My kids made slime and it's in the carpet, can it be safely removed?
