Breathe new life back into your carpets.

No other item in your home absorbs more dirt and debris and can affect the appearance of your home like your carpets. Many carpets available today have been treated with a stain resistant coating. However, even carpets that have been treated are not completely stain proof. ServiceMaster Clean has spent years developing cleaning technologies and methods to remove even the toughest stains, such as wine, pet stains, coffee and ink.

Protect your investment.

We understand that your home is one of your biggest investments. As carpet is a substantial part of that investment, neglect or improper care can lead to matting, fading, fraying and premature and costly replacement. Regular, thorough cleaning by our skilled professionals at ServiceMaster Residential Specialists can extend the life of your carpet investment, maintaining its rich appearance in an affordable and consistent manner. Our research and development team at ServiceMaster Clean works to ensure that we are using state-of-the-art products and processes to remove stains and reduce soil levels. We work to your specifications and guarantee the job is done right.

Rethink rented carpet cleaners.

Some homeowners attempt to deep clean their own carpets by using rental equipment. That equipment produces a vastly different result than ServiceMaster Residential Specialists' carpet cleaning. We have trained technicians that know the exact amount of pressure to use when cleaning, which cleaning products are best for your carpet and how to remove stains, soil and spots without over wetting the carpet or leaving behind a sticky residue. And the rental machine itself is a one-pass treatment that doesn’t pre-treat spots or rinse with clean water afterward. Homeowners are left with over-wet carpets and detergent residue. ServiceMaster Clean follows a thorough, five-step cleaning process to ensure both dirt and detergent are cleaned from your carpets using high-powered, truck-mounted equipment. 

What to expect with our service.
  • Step 1: Inspect, with you, the area to be serviced and review of the total cost of the service. 
  • Step 2: Apply a pre-spray to the carpet and let it dwell for three to five minutes. The pre-spray is a detergent solution that emulsifies (breaks down) the soil embedded in the carpet.
  • Step 3: Extract the detergent solution.
  • Step 4: Rinse with clear water. This removes any residue that might cause the carpet to re-soil faster allowing for fresh, clean carpets.
  • Step 5: Post-treat any spots that might remain. 
  • Step 6: Inspect the carpets with you to ensure your complete satisfaction. 
Pre-Cleaning Instructions:
  • Remove breakables from the tops of furniture in the room we will be cleaning.
  • Pick up items from the floor, such as rugs, plants, toys, pet beds, etc.
  • Pre-vacuum all areas to be cleaned.

Note: We will place blocks under lighter items such as end tables, coffee tables, dining room chairs, loveseats, chairs and small sofas. Items we normally clean around instead of moving include beds, armoires, pieces containing china and electronics, exercise equipment and large or heavy sofas.
Post-Cleaning Instructions:
  • Stay off freshly cleaned carpets for at least 8 hours. Walking on them may flatten the fibers. When walking on them for the next 8 hours, wear white cotton socks.
  • Use air movers to help air circulation and speed up the drying time.
  • If a carpet protector such as Scotchgard was applied, foot traffic should be minimized for up to 24 hours to let product cure. 
  • Don’t move any furniture back in place until carpet is completely dry or Scotchgard carpet protector has cured.
  • If extraction was performed, wait up to two days before placing heavy furniture back onto carpet if not using blocks.
Caring for your carpets correctly extends their life.
  • Vacuuming regularly is the best way to maintain your carpets. Vacuum daily in high-traffic or pet areas. Vacuum twice weekly in medium-traffic areas. Vacuum weekly in light-traffic areas, using attachments at carpet edges.
  • Be aware that one pass with a vacuum is usually not sufficient to do a thorough job. Going over it one time may be enough to remove the dirt that is on the very surface layer, but debris can work its way down into the fibers and may need to be approached multiple times, from different angles in order to be most effective.
  • Use rugs or mats at doorways going in and out of your house. Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters the house.
  • Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to resoil quicker.
  • To remove a spill, blot liquids with a dry, white absorbent cloth or plain white paper towels (no prints or colors).
  • Start at the outside of the spot and continue toward the center to prevent the stain from spreading. Continue blotting until the area is barely damp. Semisolids, like food spills, may need to be scooped up with a spoon. Solid, dried bits can be vacuumed up. Warning: do not scrub or use a brush. Scrubbing and brushes can damage the carpet. Fraying and texture change is the likely result.
  • Pretest your chosen carpet cleaner on a scrap of carpet or in a hidden area of your carpet.
  • Follow the product’s directions carefully. Apply a small amount of the cleaner to a white cloth and work in gently, from the edges to the center. Blot; don’t scrub. Never use a brush. You may need to do this several times to remove the spot.
  • Some homeowners ask everyone to take off his or her shoes before entering your home. This practice saves wear and tear on the carpet. 
  • Change your air filters regularly. Refer to the manufacturer’s directions for your heating and air-conditioning system. The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the less that fall on the carpet.
  • Rearranging furniture every few months and combing the dents to fluff them are ways to get rid of indentations that are caused by the weight of couches, chairs or tables. Rotating rugs so that they do not get worn in the same places over a long period of time is another quick way to lengthen the vibrancy of smaller floor coverings. 

Recommended Cleaning Schedule

To properly maintain your carpets, they should be vacuumed weekly and spot cleaned as needed. To keep your carpets looking their best, we recommend a professional carpet cleaning every 6-12 months depending on traffic and the wear and tear. An easy way to remember when it’s time for your deep carpet cleaning is to plan around your spring cleaning schedule or when preparing holiday get togethers at your home.
