Our equipment is custom made, as we've learned from 32 years experience how much moisture is needed, combined with state of the art cleaning solutions, to NOT over-wet the carpet while maximizing efficiency.


I start with a pre-treat which emulsifies and soliloquizes the foot and pet oils in the carpet that trap dirt, dust and food particles, loosens and lifts them to the surface which enhances the steam cleaning process.


WE DO NOT use shampoo because the PH level is neutral and it leaves a sticky soapy residue. The solutions I use have a much higher PH level which enables the steam cleaning machine to break through the grease and oil and extract the dirt from the carpet. Carpets should be cleaned at least once per year and more often when pets are present.



Advancements in fluorochemical technology have improved the oil and stain repellency many fold. This means vacuuming is immensely more effective which enhances the life of the carpet while keeping it cleaner for longer.

When you spill something on most unprotected carpets, the fibers absorb the mess, creating stains or odors. Carpet protection works by repelling dirt from the carpet fibers and preventing them from absorbing the spills.

This is essential if you are trying to keep a healthy, clean looking carpet!


We have four different sanitizers to choose from depending on exactly what specifically we are trying to rid the carpet of, such as a specific sanitizer that attacks pet urine, and others for a myriad of pesky odors.


These products ARE NOT deodorizers which do absolutely nothing but mask odors for a very short period of time. Deodorizers are like a band-aid where sanitizer is equivalent to plastic surgery.



Upholstery cleaning is performed using our custom made hot water extraction tool that is not used by most other cleaners.


This enables us to extract the dirt, oil and dander from the actual fabric without getting the cushioning wet and drying time is usually within the hour.


We clean most fabrics and have specialized solutions that differ from the carpet cleaning solutions.


The Oriental rug cleaning solutions are made to bring out the natural colors of the oriental rugs and the entire process insures the colors won't bleed nor will the backing become damp, hence the rugs CAN be cleaned while on a hardwood floor.

Any shape, any size!



Mattress cleaning is performed using a special hydro -kinetic upholstery tool that does not saturate, yet cleans the skin cells, dust mites, and dirt from the fabric. Sanitizer is included in the solution to kill any bacteria and most odor problems.

After setting off the Precor Plus Fogger , you should leave the house for 2 hours and then upon returning, open doors and windows and let the house air out for 1 hour. 


The only clean up you need to worry about would be food handling surfaces like your counter top. We use Microban which is 100% safe and incredibly effective in eliminating odors, mold, bacteria and various other bothersome smells.
