We are a family owned and operated business serving the local area of Everett and Snohomish County for over 25 years. We invite you to see what our customers say about us as carpet cleaners. We use the water extraction method of carpet cleaning (steam cleaning) that is the preferred method of cleaning by most carpet manufacturers. As IICRC certified professional carpet cleaners we bring a trusted service to work on your expensive asset. Don't settle for less, call us.
Although called 'steam cleaning' it is in fact a hot water extraction method of carpet cleaning. Hot water is sprayed into the carpet while being vacuumed out at the same time. Dirt and debris are dislodged along with the water. If steam was actually used in the cleaning, the carpet could be damaged and actually shrink or buckle. Most manufacturers recommend water extraction as a preferred method for cleaning their carpet, although they call it steam cleaning.
You should know that detergent attracts dirt and stains. That is in fact WHY it removes dirt from clothes. But when used on carpet it is much more difficult to rinse out thoroughly and it is prone to being left in the carpet fibers. Since detergent actually attracts and binds with dirt and stain molecules, the carpet will actually become dirtier sooner, just making matters worse..
While hot water is the best method of cleaning, it is not foolproof. Not all the water can be extracted from the carpet and it must breath and dry after being cleaned. The equipment used must be top notch and commercial grade so that sufficient water is extracted. If the carpet is not dried sufficiently it can mold and mildew. Always make sure your carpet cleaning company is IICRC (now called The Clean Trust) certified.
The IIRC refers to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification and is a non-governmental body that certifies cleaning methods for specialized fabrics including steam based carpet cleaning. Quality carpet cleaning companies that are the best follow the IIRC guidelines for carpet cleaners. We think our customers benefit a great deal from our Pacific Steam Carpet Cleaning IICRC certification.
