Feeling of safe in our own homes, stores, and schools has become a challenge. The definition of clean today means, constantly washing your hands, masking up, applying hand sanitizer multiple times a day, and spraying surfaces with Lysol every chance you get however, you still do not feel fully clean. Here at SERVPRO Memorial West/ Bear Creek we provide a DEEPER & DIFFERENT kind of clean. That feeling of clean that gives you a sense of security in your home, workplace or while shopping at your neighborhood grocery store.

Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

11/12/2019 (Permalink)

Most carpet manufacturers recommend having your carpet cleaned every twelve to eighteen months to maintain the warranty. If you’re not worried about a warranty, the frequency is best determined by how you live in your home. Smaller homes without pets may only require cleaning once a year. A larger home with children and pets would likely need more frequent cleanings, perhaps twice a year. When it comes to upholstery cleaning, this should be done at least once or twice every two years, unless the upholstery gets frequent abuse by children and pets or if the manufacturer recommends more frequent cleanings. Bottom line? Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery.

We also offer a range of specialized cleaning methods:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include: 

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.

Bring your carpet back to life

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

If you have carpets that are affected by stains and dirt, SERVPRO offers multiple cleaning methods to bring your carpet back to life!

The first and lightest cleaning method is Bonnet cleaning. The advantage of having your carpet cleaned like this is that it is the least aggressive method and drying time is the fastest of all the methods.

The second and most common type of carpet cleaning is hot water extraction. With either a truck mount or portable extractor, the unit applies a cleaning solution with hot water while vacuuming the carpet. The advantage of having this method is that it is a deeper cleaning method for all carpets and helps promote longer carpet life.

The third is the precondition and rinse. The process is spraying soil emulsifier on the carpet and using an extraction unit to remove it after fifteen minutes. The advantage of having this cleaning method is that it helps restore carpet piles and removes deeply soiled areas. 

And the final cleaning method is premier cleaning. We begin this two step process by first shampooing the carpet thoroughly, then rinsing and extracting the entire carpet for a deep clean. The advantages of having this clean is that it is the most effective on restoring carpet after a fire.

If you have carpets that have been damaged, call SERVPRO of Bear Creek at (281) 463-9800 for a professional clean.
