Each year several pounds of soil can accumulate in and under the carpet, so it’s just as important to clean for mechanical purposes as aesthetic purposes to remove the soil from the carpet fiber.

Pollutants in the air filter down into the carpet this is referred to as “filtration soil”, often resulting in a black line running all around the carpet where it meets the base boards, black outlines around furniture and desks etc. Filtration soil is super difficult to remove so proper cleaning habits are imperative to the lifespan and appearance of the carpet before filtration soil and traffic wear become permanent and odor begins to develop.


Once the carpets natural filtering ability is hampered by really high concentrations of soil, and allergen levels climb, the body may produce “histamines” or display signs of allergic reactions, so we may need to take anti-histamines like Benadryl. Professionally clean carpets every six months, much more so for commercial applications, usually every quarter for better health. Your doctor may also recommend allergy medications or allergy injections in addition to DEEP CLEANING.

What is a premature wear pattern?
Soil, when it accumulates in a carpet acts like little knives cutting and scratching at the carpet fiber, grinding the expensive yarns down into those worthless fibers that fill your vacuum bag. The longer the customer waits between cleaning, the more damage is done. Carpet, if not maintained properly by vacuuming twice a week and professional cleaning periodically, will quickly exhibit wear and unfortunately will result in those shaded, worn looking traffic lanes. This shading is considered damage and is irreversible. It is important to vacuum regularly and have carpets professionally cleaned with the factory recommended method and to re-apply a carpet protector like Teflon or Scotch-Guard to heavily traveled pathways to prevent damage and extend carpet life and appearance.

What happens when the “carpet filter” gets too full? Your family begins breathing higher levels of allergens including dust mites & debris. These microscopic organisms, which are related to spiders, live in many homes. Too small to see with the naked eye, dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments — eating dead skin cells and nesting in dust-collecting bedding, fabric, carpet and furnishings. The residue that dust mites leave behind mixes with dust and becomes airborne. If you aren't allergic to dust mite protein, it's not harmful. But if you are, inhaling the residue can cause bothersome symptoms, including wheezing, sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose and skin rash.

Occasionally we get busy and just plain lose the battle with our pets and from time to time they may
expel into the carpet causing an un-sanitary condition in the carpet, it doesn’t just smell, it is unhealthy!

Bacteria will bloom in the affected areas and once the millions of bacteria complete their life cycle they will de-compose causing an odor. This is often ammonia gas (called-off gassing) caused by the decomposing bacteria.

The great news is I have a product called a Digester, that when applied to this contamination, will completely digest the odor causing bacteria and remove the odor source, as well as remove the bacteria.

How Much Is It?
The great news is the treatment only runs half the price of the cleaning or $29.95 for each specific area.

I Thought That Is Included In The Cleaning?
We include everything it takes to get it clean; the pre-spotting and pre-conditioning, moving basic furniture and a thirty day warranty where if you have any question or problems, we will return for a
FREE Re-Clean as needed.

Pet damage is a more complex bacterial contamination (sort of like mold growth in a home…) that requires additional or specialized treatment to combat the bacteria that standard deep cleaning will not defeat.

Did you know that when your carpet was milled the factory applies a product to protect the carpet fiber from wear and future staining? This product is often called Scotchgard or Teflon. Overtime, with wear and tear, daily vacuuming, and periodic cleaning, this factory protection wears away especially in heavily traveled pathways and leaves your investment vulnerable to premature wear and staining!

This wear is referred to as “Shading” or a “Traffic Pattern”. It is super important to re-protect the areas with Scotchgard or Teflon to help prevent this irreversible damage from occurring. The good news is I can re-protect these areas of for just half the price of the cleaning.
