Roger Heldreth and his techs at Knox Dry Carpet Cleaning clean carpets with a six-step water-free process that starts with a simple walkthrough. After identifying stains, odors, and damaged areas, they move light pieces of furniture and vacuum up stray dirt particles. Their green-certified pre-spotter then preps stains and soil in high-traffic areas.
With soft counter-rotating brushes, they coat fibers in an organic dry carpet-cleaning compound. As this concoction dissolves, it grabs dirt and stains, pulling them away from carpet fibers for techs to vacuum up. They finish with a carpet grooming tool that fluffs fibers and extends the life of the carpet. Roger also offers a 12-step upholstery cleaning process that includes fabric testing to determine an armchair's IQ.
