Did you know the EPA recommends 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 are a locally owned and operated business, certified by the IICRC for cleaning carpets, and have been in operation since 2008. Here is why our cleaning team is different from the competition.

We Use 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 is 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 is 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 is not 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 are not properly rinsed of solution will look dirtier a few weeks after the cleaning. Vacuuming will not 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 do not have leftover chemicals grabbing dust and everyday dirt where your vacuum cannot get it. This makes your carpets stay cleaner for longer.

What Happens if You Hire an Unskilled Carpet Cleaning Team 

If you do not have a professional and highly qualified carpet cleaning team handle your hot water extraction procedure, it could destroy your carpet. Not only could the carpet stay wet for longer than you expected, but you can expect it to look dirty or more quickly than it did before you hired a “professional.”

Spots and stains may initially go away when the carpet is clean, but you should not be surprised if they reappear within a few days of your cleaning. Another tell-tale sign of an unskilled or money-hungry carpet cleaning team is hard selling. You should never have to pay extra for routine cleaning services.

Fortunately, when you have our St. Augustine professional carpet cleaners working for you, you can expect a carpet cleaning experience you can trust to get the job done right the first time.

How Much It Might Cost to Have a Professional Clean Your Carpet

You do not want to have to spend an arm and a leg to hire a professional carpet cleaning team. When you choose First Coast Home Pros, you can feel confident in our company values. The standard price for our professional carpet cleaning includes not only the cleaning services but restoration, deodorization, and protection processes as well.

If you are utilizing our steam cleaning services, you will get a flat rate estimate. We will never charge for our travel to your home or business, fuel costs, vacuuming, or neutralizing rinses. These are all included in your carpet cleaning costs.

Certain kinds of cleaning and deodorizing, like urine spots, or services like 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. You can also take advantage of our offer to move most furniture items out of the way upon request.

Clean Carpets Make a Healthier Home

Carpets are comfortable on your feet and look attractive, but they are 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 will 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.
