How are we certified? Who certifies us? Recently we received this great question: Who and what makes us “certified” to be a professional cleaner?

Before I begin, it’s imperative to know that carpet cleaning is not a licensed trade, like say a builder’s license. Many states require a business license, but none require a cleaning or restoration-specific trade license. This is important because...

Ever since I became a carpet cleaner in 1994, one popular myth continues to stick around; installed carpeting increased asthma and allergies in humans and pets. We’ve looked high and low for scientific evidence to prove these “facts”, but have come up short. What I’ve found is completely on the contrary over the years.

Reappearing Carpet Spots

Reappearing Carpet Spots Have you had carpet spots reappear after you’ve cleaned them? It could be due to a condition called “wicking” which causes soil to move to the surface as carpet dries. What are Reappearing Carpet Spots?

When a spill occurs, gravity pulls the spill down through the carpet fibers...

Let’s Talk About Carpet Protector

Let’s Talk About Carpet Protector What is carpet protector? Do I need it? There are 2 different types of carpet protector: There is a soil blocker and a stain blocker. In certain carpet fibers, there are little tiny microscopic holes called dye sites. Those dye sites hold dye. You can imagine a lighter colored carpeting would have the same amount of dye sites as one that is dark, but not all of the dye sites are filled in. Less of the dye sites are filled in on lighter colored carpeting. Carpet mills usually put a protector...
