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.
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.

AIR DUCT CLEANING ESTABLISHED IN 1969!

According to the EPA, carcinogens, dust, yeast colonies, smallpox, viruses and other bacteria may be living in air ducts causing asthma, headaches or influenza.
PROFESSIONAL AIR DUCT CLEANING PROCEDURE
To start a Technician will walk through your home or commercial building to review your system and how it is setup and to locate all registers, returns, furnace and points of access.
- First, carefully transporting the revolution hybrid portable duct vacuum to where the furnace(s) are located.
- Second, the Technicians cut a small 8-inch access point in each trunk line and attach an 8-inch round vacuum hose connecting to the access hole. In addition, the 8-inch round vacuum hose maintains the negative air suction pressure from the air duct cleaning machine.
- Third, we travel to each individual register and return. so that, compressed positive air forces all the debris, dust, fungus, and bacteria down to be collected in your main trunk line. Agitation equipment is used like whips, brushes and forward skipper balls to ensure everything is completely removed.
- Lastly, we clean out your trunk line, filter box, blower compartment, and combustion chamber and seal up the access point.

3 COMMON PROFESSIONAL UPHOLSTERY CLEANING METHODS
First, the shampooing method is the oldest form of professional upholstery cleaning. Indeed, it is an effective way to clean upholstered furniture. However, there’s two major concerns with shampooing furniture: 1.) Over shampooing, 2.) Over wetting. Since, shampoo cleaning agents are applied an overuse of them maybe be a challenge to rinse out. In addition, the residue will attract dirt like a magnet. Lastly, over wetting upholstery can cause shrinkage, discoloration, mold and mildew problems.
Secondly, the hot water extraction method is an advanced technology from the issues stemming from shampooing. Because of technology, the hot water extraction method can rinse and extract simultaneously. Furthermore, extracting 80-85% of the water used to rinse safe cleaning agents. In the end, leaving upholstery less wet with faster drying times and more effective results.
Lastly, the encapsulation method to professionally clean upholstery. For example, encapsulation may be applied by spraying or rubbing foam onto the upholstered item. This method is a low moisture clean and is commonly used for natural fibers. To conclude with the encapsulation method, just vacuum spray or foam.
MCCREARY’S HEALTHY HOMES PROFESSIONAL UPHOLSTERY CLEANING PROCESS
- To start with, pre-spray safe cleaning agents on the upholstered furniture to break up the dirt, bacteria, stains, and pollen.
- Next, upholstery is agitated with a brush.
- Thirdly, deep clean using a 3 inch upholstery tool.
- Afterwards, rinse and extract using the upholstery tool. Similarly, creating dry paths to quicken drying times.
- Finally, brush out the dry path lines to gain consistent contrast of fabric.
Afterwords, keep children and pets off clean upholstered furniture that has been cleaned until completely dry. Further, drying time will vary due to specific factors, including: humidity, density, fabric of your furniture and air circulation.
FURNITURE FABRIC WILL DETERMINE THE METHOD OF A PROFESSIONAL UPHOLSTERY CLEANING
To start with, check furniture tags for the cleaning code. Furthermore, the cleaning code on the furniture tag will have a description of the method for cleaning. Above all, before you attempt to clean or remove a stain please check the tag.
More importantly, when trying to remove a spot or a stain, do not scrub. As a result scrubbing could spread the stain deeper into the fabric. Instead, blot with a soft microfiber cloth.
As a final point, dirt not only affects the appearance of upholstered furniture, but wears away in the fibers. Therefore, vacuuming upholstered furniture often is encouraged to loosen dried dirt and debris.
Our 30 day guarantee, is like a 30 day warranty on the areas we cleaned. Please give us a call back if any areas that we cleaned and treated re-appear.
We have great success eliminating stains and spots, but nothing is ever promised. Our upholstery cleaning experts will evaluate all areas and will give their honest opinion and what you can expect!
Colored stain(s) or spot(s) may not come out with just a professional upholstery cleaning. There is a process/method we can perform, but it will be at an additional cost and no guarantee they will come out.
Most of all, how long a spill, spot, or animal accident occurred will ultimately determine the success rate.
Furniture Takes a Beating
Professional Upholstery Cleaning
First, no matter the protection on upholstered items, furniture takes a beating! Furthermore, accidents happen and the reaction will determine the outcome. Although, there’s no intention to destroy, harm or ruin furniture, it happens. Over time, furniture takes a beating, sitting, laying, drooling, eating, or drinking. Call (517) 484-6908 to schedule a professional upholstery cleaning.
Second, no matter the rules set, children do what they want, when there is no one looking. Usually, being at grandma’s house, there are no rules! Sippy cups get lost in couches and chocolate fingers touch everything. Even grandma might spill a little red wine on her favorite upholstered chair.
Third, no matter how trained an animal is, they enjoy the luxuries we provide, but leave a trail. Fury family members could be the main suspect for accumulating the majority of dirt on upholstered items.
Lastly, no matter what, the air circulating through homes is at least 2-5x dirtier than outdoor air. Dirt, pollen, bacteria is brought in from the outside, doesn’t leave and the fabric on furniture acts as a filter attracting it like a magnet.
In all, call (517) 484-6908 to schedule your professional upholstery cleaning in Haslett, Okemos, East Lansing, Williamston, DeWitt, St. Johns, Laingsburg, Perry, Mason, Holt, Eaton Rapids, Dimondale, Lansing and Grand Ledge MI.
