Accidents Happen!

However, studies show only 50-75% of spills will come out when trying to remove it ourselves. More importantly, the longer a spill sits, the higher probability it becomes a permanent stain.

Why do we need to wash our clothes?

According to Chromium Zone, “We need to wash our clothes because we sweat/excrete stuff from our body, as well as picking up dirt and contaminants from our environment. Not washing clothes, would be a risk of harboring bacteria and increasing the likelihood of infections/disease. Plus, it means our clothes look and smell nice and last longer.”- Tom Crick

In contrast, “We need to wash our clothes,” is the same reason to have our carpet professionally cleaned.

Hot Water Extraction Carpet Cleaning Method

With the Hot Water Extraction carpet cleaning method, temperature can reach up to 220 degrees.The method rinses and extracts dirt simultaneously. Most carpet manufacturers require hot water extraction carpet cleaning be used to uphold carpets warranty.

To put it another way, don’t waste valuable time and hard earned money renting or buying carpet cleaning machines. Consequently, a store bought carpet cleaning machine will not properly rinse, extract cleaning solutions or reach a temperature hot enough to eliminate oils and bacteria.

McCreary’s Professional Carpet Cleaning Process

  • First, safe cleaning agents are sprayed onto the carpet to break up the dirt, bacteria, and stains.
  • Secondly, carpet is agitated by raking the area.
  • Thirdly, cleaning the carpet with a wand or Rotary Extraction for a deep clean.
  • Fourth, creating dry paths by extracting more than 80% of the water. As a result, allowing carpet faster drying times to prevent mold or mildew. Lastly, a final groom is given.

* Fabric protection and sanitizer/deodorizer are additional costs.

Get info on our wands

Notably, not all carpet cleaning wands are the same. As a matter of fact, wands vary in length, weight and design. In the picture above, the carpet cleaning wand is roughly 13.5 inches in length, with a 3 jet dual manifold, and built on guard to protect valuables.

Furthermore, natural fibers require specialty products and cleaning. For this reason, a carpet cleaning wand has a more gentle approach. That being the case, the wand gives you more control to minimize the use of water, temperature of water and extracting water. Otherwise, the natural fiber dyes can be damaged.

Natural vs. Synthetic Fibers

For a start, natural fibers are environmentally friendly because they are made from natural resources. In addition, synthetic fibers release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are gasses emitted from the fibers. Unlike synthetic fiber, natural fibers will not release VOCs, unless, theirs a synthetic backing.

In particular, synthetic materials are man made. Likewise, because of the cost, synthetic carpet is found in the majority of homes. Generally, synthetic fibers are more stain resistant than natural fibers. Also, synthetic fibers are easier to maintain.

On the other hand, natural fibers are grown in nature, from natural resources. Indeed, a small percentage of homes have natural fiber carpet because it’s so expensive to purchase and maintain. However, natural fibers are eco-friendly because they’re made from natural resources. Either way, each fiber has their strength and weaknesses. These differences, determine the approach taken to clean. In addition, some fibers have low resiliency and others have a tendency to absorb oily soils. By the same token, all fabrics take an immense amount of foot traffic, accidental spills, and other abuse.


In the end, if any spots come back in the area’s we cleaned, Let us know and we will comeback FREE of charge to touch them up.

On the other hand we have great success eliminating stains and spots, but nothing is ever promised. A cleaning expert will evaluate all areas and will give an honest opinion of what you can expect! In any case, red and orange stains will NOT come out just by carpet cleaning. There’s a process/method, but it will be at an additional cost.
