In their white vans and red polo shirts, the technicians behind Augusta Carpet Cleaning travel to homes and businesses to clean carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Before they dig in, though, they throw open the back doors of their trucks to reveal HydraMaster equipment. They use its silver nozzles, attached to long blue tubes, to expunge odors, allergens, and stains with steam-cleaning techniques and distribute Scotchgard to protect carpets from future splotches. When they aren't purifying fibers, they purge tile and grout, clean air ducts, and restore abodes that have been flooded—they ask the resident, however, to fish out any trout beforehand.
