Advanced Carpet Restoration has been brewing eco-friendly carpet and textile cleaning solutions for more than two decades. Upon arrival, bootie-clad technicians protect domiciles with entry mats, floor blankets, towels, and corner guards before carefully moving most furniture with the help of sliders and protective blocks. Then, they can prep their surfaces for a gentle machine scrubbing, restoring twisted and damaged fibers on matted lanes and removing loose allergens and dust mites with a HEPA-filtered vacuum. Fibers are pretreated with an eco-friendly, clinical-grade disinfectant and green detergents, and can be followed by a rotary-machine shampooing process using microfiber bonnet pads to remove soils. Revitalizing soft-water steam from a truck-mounted system occurs next, with subsequent suction removing stubborn dirt and allergens without leaving a dingy residue. Techs don't leave the cleaning to chance, wielding hand tools after each initial pass to meticulously steam clean along all baseboards, stairs, and edges. Once satisfied, they let their fans finish up, leaving carpets dry in a fraction of the normal time.
In addition to carpet cleaning, the expert techs specialize in many other textile and carpet maintenance services. They break down pets' organic stains and odors with safe acids, enzymes, and oxidizers after a complimentary black light inspection. They can also treat carpets with an advanced green carpet protector application to prevent staining and keep carpets cleaner for longer. Along with fine fabric upholstery services, techs also restore treasured area rugs in their in-plant submersion tanks. They even venture beneath rugs and carpets, restoring water- and fire-damaged flooring and cleaning hard surfaces such as tile and grout, garage floors, and even natural marble and granite surfaces.
