Sometimes a general vacuuming, steam cleaning or shampooing might not be enough to clean and protect your carpets. If you are taking your carpets to get cleaned you should always inquire about what other services the carpet cleaning company may offer. Extra carpet cleaning services can protect you from spills and stains as well as moth infestations. Below are four extra carpet cleaning services you need to know about!
Scotch Guarding: Scotch Guard is the ultimate insurance policy for your wall to wall carpets, area rugs and upholstery. Scotch Guard is a safe chemical spray that creates a repellent coating around carpet fibers. This coating will prevent staining liquids from penetrating into the carpet giving you more time to react to a stain.
Odor Removal/O-Zone: Sometimes a general carpet cleaning may not be enough to remove unwanted odors. O-zone odor treatment attacks odors on a molecular level and is the most efficient way at removing musty smells, urine odor and any other unwanted odors.
Mothproofing: People are not the only ones that enjoy oriental rugs. Moths use the silky fibers that area rugs are made of for food and shelter. As a result moths can cause permanent damage. We recommend mothproofing your area rugs when you put them in storage, or if you do not frequently vacuum your carpets.
Padding Sales: Carpet padding helps carpets last longer and feel softer. When carpet padding is subject to moisture or water damage it needs to be replaced. The padding with contain the moisture and potentially grow mold and mildew. You should check you carpet padding on occasion and have it replaced if necessary.
