The Steam Brigade's powerful carpet-cleaning services are driven by truck-mounted thermal extraction systems. This cleaning process extends the life of carpet and is recommended by most major carpet manufacturers, including Shaw Industries, the world's largest manufacturer of carpet and floor toupees. At the beginning of the rooms' shower, The Steam Brigade sprays the fiber floorhat with a hot alkaline solution and then runs extractors over the area, spraying down a mild acid wash to prevent re-soiling and vacu-sucking all of the worn-in dirt, stains, grime, and grit out. The fully insured professionals will give three of your favorite rooms, as well as one misbehaving hallway, the royal hose treatment. After the hoses are rolled up, the truck rumbles away, and the carpet is dry, you'll be left with carpet clean enough to walk on with your tongue.
Sanitize 4 Serenity's mission is to oust dust mites, and allergens from the home using only natural cleaning products that are safe for children and pets. To sanitize mattresses, upholstery, stuffed toys, and carpets, techs shine germicidal UV lamps to kill bacteria, or employ black lights to reveal any stains or jellyfish hiding in couch cushions. From there, they spray natural solutions rich with enzymes that eat and destroy any remaining bacteria, and may finish some jobs with machine extraction. A low-moisture extraction method follows vacuuming, prespray, and carpet raking during each carpet-cleaning treatment, allowing freshened fibers to dry quickly. To keep wood floors at their shiniest, they also buff planks with natural solutions that won't warp the wood and finish with a lamb's wool bonnet to leave it looking lustrous and new.
Superior Steam Cleaners sanitizes floors in an environmentally and customer-friendly manner. Seasoned stain-slayers begin by using a prevacuum-and-conditioner spray to remove the worst blemishes. The application of a stain protector increases the carpet's ability to resist stains and abrasion, leaving indoor lawns soft, fibrous, and ready for the next indoor barbecue or indoor lawn-darts tournament. They'll also clean edges and apply an ultrahot clear-water rinse to remove stubborn dirt and spots from their hideouts deep within the carpet's bedrock, finishing with a final grooming and speed drying.
