What is the best method of cleaning?
The best method for cleaning a particular carpet is dependent on a range of factors. All carpet cleaning methods offer various advantages, but also have some limitations.

Your ACR technicians are skilled in all carpet cleaning methods. We provide truck mounted “and Portable steam” cleaning and low moisture carpet cleaning methods.

Will your services help my allergies?
Yes, having your carpet and furniture cleaned removes pollutants and makes for a more friendly breathing environment.
Will you remove all my stains?
Let me start by defining the difference between a spot and a stain: a spot- is any foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) that is removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material is on or around the carpet fiber) A stain- is foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) on carpet that is not usually removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material has penetrated ‘soaked into’ fiber and has changed or damaged the fiber itself). Some stains may be very difficult or impossible to remove.
Does cleaning your carpet make it wear out faster?
No, actually dirt acts as an abrasive when trapped in your carpet or fabrics and should be removed to reduce wear.
Does your process restore the original feel of my carpet?
Yes, our process leaves your carpet fresh, clean, residue free and soft to the touch.
Should I have a fabric protector applied after cleaning?
Yes, most carpet manufacturers recommend that you reapply protector after professional cleaning to restore the original stain resistance. Some manufacturers even require it as part of the warranty on the carpet.
My carpet is really old, should I replace it?
With the cost of replacing carpet being as expensive as it is today, it is always best to try having the carpet professionally cleaned first. It is far less costly and may make a world of difference.
What should I do before your Carpet cleaning crew shows up to clean?
1. Vacuum all carpeted areas thoroughly.
2. Remove all breakable items from the cleaning area and store in a safe area (lamps, collectibles, etc.)
3. Other than large furniture, remove all items from the floor (waste baskets, brief cases, toys, etc.). Light chairs (i.e. dining room chairs) should be removed as well. Pin up bed spreads, dust ruffles and drapes.
4. Extremely large or heavy items will remain in place (i.e. entertainment units, china cabinets, pianos). We will clean up to the outside edges.
5. Medium-sized furniture (i.e. tables, coffee tables, end tables, wing chairs, recliners, sofas) may be moved at an additional charge by our techs, the area cleaned, and returned to their location. When the furniture is returned, we will place protective padding under furnishings with wood or metal feet to protect the carpet and the furniture.
6. Please make a parking space available near the entry and free of obstructions (vehicles, bikes, flower pots, etc.)

8. Finally, we will treat your carpet and furnishings with the utmost care and respect. Thank you for choosing ACR. We look forward to providing you with the best service available anywhere.
Hot Water Extraction (Steam)
We use an extraction cleaning method that takes the dirt from your carpets and upholstery; this, combined with the quality non-toxic cleaning products we use guarantees excellent results.
A solution of water and detergent is injected into the carpet under pressure. It is then immediately extracted together with soil and spots which have been loosened and suspended. Our cleaning units provide powerful vacuum suction for water extraction and use a “heat exchanger” to heat the water, bringing it’s temperature up to 230 degrees wow – hot!! This system is the best for deep cleaning carpets and upholstery.
Carpet Cleaning equipment available are; Truck-mount steam cleaning, Portable steam cleaning for high-rise buildings and difficult to access areas and Rotary cleaning for heavily soiled carpets.
