Cleaning up after a smoky summer!

Why it is super important to clean your carpets after a smoky summer.
removing soil

Carpet acts as a large "filter" holding contaminates from the air and your environment.

It's important to clean your carpets after such a smoky summer for many reasons.  Primarily to remove all of the oils and soils that are now contaminating your carpets and make them clean and hygienic for winter time when you will be spending much more time indoors.  
Your carpets act like a large filter, they trap and hold particulate matter.  Gravity pulls these particulates down into the carpet and they become trapped in the carpet fibers.  In the image above, you can see that the left side is before we cleaned and the right is after cleaning.  What a difference clean carpets makes in your environment!

Unfortunately, our summer was a bit smoky, and that smoke may have made it's way into your carpets. Smoke and soot are made of carbons and oils, so it can be a bit tricky to get it out of carpets with a household vacuum. Those suckers really tend to stick. That's where we come in. We can thoroughly clean your carpets, using the best techniques and equipment, so that you never again have to touch, taste, or breathe that smoky stuff. Also, because in the winter you are spending so much more time indoors, you won't have to see all that dirt and grime.

We use only the best all natural cleaning agents. Cleaning Products made from plant based surfactants (soaps made with plant oils) and boosted with pure citrus oil helps to break down all the oils and soils so that we can rinse them free from your carpeting. Leaving your carpets clean, soft and free of any residue. Most carpets are dry in 3 to 4 hours after cleaning.
