Did you know the EPA recommends a carpet cleaning every 4-18 months? Vacuuming is great for maintenance, but every carpet will need a cleaning service to look great and to reduce allergens in your home.
First Coast Home Pros has carpet cleaning services in St. Augustine, FL, and other northeast Florida cities. We’re a locally owned and operated business, certified by the IICRC for cleaning carpets, and have been in operation since 2008. Here’s why we’re different from the competition!
What Is Double Extraction Steam Cleaning?
Double extraction steam cleaning is our preferred method of cleaning carpets in St. Augustine. Steam cleaning is the method recommended by carpet manufacturers to deep clean a carpet. It is the best method found so far to remove dirt and bacteria from a carpet.
However, less-professional steam cleaning companies will leave your carpets wet after a steam clean. In a humid environment like Florida, that’s an invitation for mold to breed in your carpet and pad. That’s why we use a double extraction method.
Our method draws out more cleaning agents and water after cleaning and makes your drying time faster, denying mold and mildew the chance to grow in the hidden parts of your carpet. It’s the healthier solution!
Neutralizing Solutions Remove Carpet Cleaning Residue
Steam cleaners use hot steam and a cleaning agent to lift dirt from your carpet fibers. If the cleaning agent isn’t rinsed out properly, it will stick to the fibers. All soap-like chemicals will bind dirt to themselves, and this presents several problems.
Carpets that aren’t properly rinsed of solution will look dirtier a few weeks after the cleaning. Vacuuming won’t pick up cleaning residue and any dirt stuck to it, so your carpets will look dirtier in no time. That is, unless your St. Augustine carpet cleaning company also uses a neutralizing solution.
Our neutralizing rinse removes all cleaning residue from your carpet so that you don’t have leftover chemicals grabbing dust and everyday dirt where your vacuum can’t get it. This makes your carpets stay cleaner for longer.
No Bait-and-Switch Tactics From Us
We’ve had many new customers come to us with complaints about the sales tactics of other home carpet cleaning companies. There are a lot of upcharges and hidden fees that can make the job much more expensive than you think.
When we do a carpet service, we will clean the carpet, restore its condition, deodorize it, and protect it with our neutralizing rinse. We do not charge extra for going to your home, vacuuming before cleaning, pre-spraying stains, or moving standard-sized furniture.
Certain kinds of cleaning and deodorizing, like urine spots, or moving especially heavy or large furniture may cost extra, but we can discuss these after we assess the condition of your carpet. We will NEVER clean a room and then charge extra after the fact. You will know the cost before we start.
Clean Carpets Make a Healthier Home
Carpets are comfortable on your feet and look attractive, but they’re also a hotbed of dirt, pets, allergens, and bacteria. This is why they need regular cleaning. The more traffic, pets, and spills you have, the more often you’ll need to clean.
You may also need to clean more if you have allergies or suffer from asthma. If there are allergens in your carpet, each step can push them into the air. An air purifier will help, but anyone with allergies and carpet should clean at least twice a year to allergy-proof your home.
If you have bed bugs, fleas, or mites in your home, our cleaning service can help you. Professional steam cleaners reach temperatures high enough to kill these creatures and their eggs.
