Can pet urine stain and odor actually be removed from my carpeting?
Our powerful extraction equipment removes most spots and stains. For those stubborn stains, we carry a carpet safe solution that has proven success.


How often should I have my carpets professionally cleaned?
Regular maintenance cleaning is very important for maintaining the "like new" appearance of carpets. This is determined by each household situation.

According to major carpet and fiber manufacturers, under normal usage, residential carpets should be professionally steamed cleaned every 12 months. Heavy use areas should have more frequent care.


I have dark lines around the edge of my carpet next to the wall. What are these?
These are called soil filtration lines. These are dark soiled areas that develop gradually on carpet. They are most common around the edges of a room next to the wall, under floor length draperies and under doors. But they can develop anywhere there is an air space such as between floorboards or spaces in the subflooring. Also known as soil lines, smog lines and perimeter soiling (when they occur around walls), the problem is usually more obvious close to heating ducts, electric floor outlets, and gas valves. Bedroom doors that are closed at night, especially where windows are left open, are likely to develop the lines.

The soiling is caused by the passage of air through or across the carpet. Air carries microscopic particles of dirt, dust and soot. As air passes over the carpet, these soil particles settle and become embedded in the carpet pile yarns. In areas where air flows over the carpet more rapidly than normal the carpet acts as a filter, extracting the soil particles from the air. The soil is very fine and can penetrate deeply into the yarns. Special techniques by a professional carpet cleaner are usually required to improve the appearance of soil filtration lines.

Unfortunately, the discoloration cannot always be removed completely. The degree of removal depends on the amount and type of soil, length of time the soil has accumulated, amount of air flow, color of carpet and type of fiber. The lines can be removed from most synthetic fibers. However, in severe cases, especially on light colored carpets, traces may remain after cleaning. It is usually very difficult to remove filtration soiling completely from wool and olefin carpets.


My child misused crayons or markers. What can I do?
When you purchase “washable” art supplies for children carefully check the fine print. They usually mean it washes off the child and maybe machine washable clothing– not necessarily the wall, carpet, furniture or other textiles. Crayola®, the largest manufacturer of crayons and colored markers provides a toll-free number for answering questions on how to remove their products from a variety of different surfaces. You can request a spotting guide booklet for any future mishaps: Call 1-800-CRAYOLA weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST.
