Facts About Your Carpet
Did you know the average carpet weighs 4 times as much when it's removed as when it was installed? Most of that extra weight? Dead skin cells!
According to studies by microbiologists, the most germ-laden air in your workplace is the air blown from vacuum cleaners.
It's not just dirt in your carpet. All that outside dirt that gets tracked in on shoes and boots is also infested with germs and small critters like ticks and bedbugs. People can, and do, get bitten at the office. A sterile workplace means fewer sick days and greater productivity.
Common Stains that We Can Remove
- food and beverage spills
- gum, grease and tar
- ground-in mud and outside dirt
- blood, and more . . .
Advantages of professional Carpet Cleaning
Hot Steam Deep Extraction technology removes 99.9% of dirt, dust, allergens and bacteria. At A+, we guarantee that our professional commercial carpet cleaning service will once again make your workplace look bright, feel fresh and restore a healthy atmosphere.
Accidents happen. Employees spill coffee. The annual office Christmas party can mean red wine stains. In most cases, our A+ professional carpet cleaning spot removal service will remove the stain completely. You’ll never know it was there.
Whether your carpet is stained by coffee, beverages, food, gum or other stubborn and hard to remove stains, call us to effectively remove them once and for all.
There are also allergens to consider. Allergens are any substance, often a protein, that induces an allergic reaction. The biomatter trapped in your office carpets is made up mostly of proteins. Walking on the carpet raises invisible clouds of these microscopic particles in to the air. This can mean a loss of productivity for employees who are allergic or sensitive to these particles.
Much of the dirt that is in your carpets acts like an abrasive, wearing down the carpet fibers each time you and your employees walk on them. Removing this dirt will extend the life of your carpets.
Client and Customers
Of course it’s not all about the employees. You have visitors to your office. Clients and customers come and go in most offices on a daily basis. Dirty carpets and musty-smelling air make a poor first impression, no matter how professional your services or how good your products.

Not all carpets, or cleaning challenges, are the same.
Wear patterns, damage, discoloration, and permanent stains are all factors in deciding how best to clean your carpets. We have a variety of cleaning solutions available and will pick the right one for the job. Different types of spot stains also require different solutions. For example, salt stains and coffee stains can’t be cleaned with the same agent.
Our powerful vacuum can remove dirt that your janitor's may not.
If your carpets aren't being vacuumed at least twice per week, for a small additional fee we’ll give it a thorough vacuuming before we start. This is highly recommended, as the more loose dirt that can be removed prior to carpet steam cleaning, the better the final result will be.
Most stains can be completely removed, while others can be dramatically diminished.
We can completely remove many stains, and dramatically lighten most others, however some stains cannot be removed. We will advise you on each stain in advance. Charges depend upon the total number of stains. We have a variety of packages available
Application of environmentally-friendly but powerful carpet shampoo.
We use environmentally friendly cleaning solutions that are completely safe for your employees and customers. There is a ‘dwell time’ for each type of carpet and cleaning solution, to allow the solution to penetrate deep into the fibers for maximum effectiveness.
Carpet brushing is required in some cases to completely remove stains.
Some high traffic areas and stains will benefit from additional agitation by brushing with a low-speed rotary scrubber. This causes the solution to penetrate deeper into the fibers, and the agitation helps to break up dirt particles.
Your carpets have a big influence on the air quality in your workplace.
If your carpets have developed an odor over time, or if you just want the cleanest, freshest result possible, we offer optional deodorizing. All deodorizing chemicals are environmentally friendly and safe for you, your employees and your clients. We have a variety of scents to choose from including Cherry, Lemon and Fresh Breeze.
Hot steam extraction is where the magic really happens, lifting out ground-in dirt.
We use the highest quality commercial carpet cleaning machines in order to extract as much dirt as possible from your carpets, without damaging them. Steam temperatures as high as 200°F applied with 200 to 500 psi (pressure depends upon carpets being cleaned) will not only clean but sterilize your carpet. Solution is then extracted with two powerful triple-stage vacuum motors.
Long-lasting protection from future stains
For the longest-lasting result, and to extend the life of your carpets we recommended ScotchGuard™ carpet protector. ScotchGuard™ seals your carpet fibers so they repel dirt and stains.
The Scary Truth About Your Dirty Carpet
Did you know that the average carpet weighs four times as much when it’s removed as it did when it was installed? Dirt from our shoes, dust from the air, and, believe it or not, a lot of dead skin cells accumulate in carpets over time. Yes, dead skins cells! It turns out that we humans shed skin cells all the time...
So not only do your carpets accumulate dirt, which just looks bad, but the decaying biomatter causes a bad smell. It builds up slowly over time, so we barely notice it until it’s gone. Many people think it’s the chemicals we use that makes the air smell better after a cleaning. While there can be a slight chemical smell until the carpet is completely dry, the better air quality is actually due to the removal of all that rotting gunk in the carpet.
Replacing Carpets is Expensive
Regular commercial carpet cleaning is required to prevent all of that gunk from building up. Once it gets ground into the base of the carpet, not even professional carpet cleaning can remove it all. A small investment in regular carpet cleaning can mean big savings in less frequent carpet replacement...
If you’ve experienced that at your office or workplace, it’s something we know you want to avoid. Not only is it expensive to replace the carpets, but you need to have all the furniture moved as well. Then there’s the lost employee time in packing up and unpacking afterwards.
give your furniture a new life

Most of us remove our shoes at home, so that means a lot less dirt tracked into the carpet. At work, of course, we keep our shoes on and rely on the more durable types of carpet in our workplace to stand up to the punishment...
This means a lot more dirt being tracked in daily. And of course, many employees eat at their desk, which means bits of food getting into the carpet. This is more biomatter that rots there and adds to the musty smell.
How Effective Is Regular Vacuuming?
Your office may have a cleaning crew who vacuum the carpets regularly, maybe even nightly. This is excellent. It definitely goes a long way toward maintaining a clean and healthy environment. However, a dry vacuum can only remove the loose particles and hairs from the upper layer of the carpet. A vacuum powerful enough to remove all the dirt would also damage the carpet fibers...
So while regular vacuuming will definitely slow the build-up of dirt before it has a chance to get ground in, over time dirt and other biomatter will build up. Only professional commercial carpet cleaning can remove this dirt.
