  2. Pre vacuuming – Including edges and along walls.  The large majority of soil in carpet is particulates.  Dry soil removal is an important first step in the carpet cleaning process.  We will do this before the carpet clean.
  3. Pretreatment – of carpet for great penetration and soil suspension.  Dr. Clean will precondition the carpet which breaks up the oxidized oils and resins that are binding the other soils to the carpet.  Carpet clean sounds funny we know, but to make sure as many people as possible can find this important information about carpet and upholstery cleaning steps, we use some words that people type when they search.

  4. Agitation – Dr. Clean will use a combination of a pile brush and wand agitation to help aid in the distribution of the cleaning agent as well as soil suspension.  It will also loosen tangled matted fibers and help in keeping the carpet clean.
  5. Deodorizer – As requested before and after carpet clean.  Our non-toxic positive Bio-enzyme is formulated to digest, eliminate, and encapsulate odors from pet and human urine odor, vomit, fecal, mold, mildew, organic rot, and smoke and other smelly things.
  6. Hot Water Extraction – The pressurized hot water extraction (PHWE) the process uses a combination of high water pressure for agitation, and hot water to increase reaction rate.  The chemical activity of most cleaning solutions increases significantly as the temperature of the solution increases.  Higher temperature solutions are also more effective at emulsification and suspension of soils.  This improves the overall carpet clean feeling.
  7. Post Treatment – which eliminates detergent residues, speeds carpet drying, and makes colors really pop!  It also prevents browning, gives carpet a wonderful, soft feel, and returns carpet to the proper pH for use and/or to apply a protection application post carpet clean.
