For The Love Of Cotton

You may not know this, but cotton is the most popular fiber in the world. Why? Because it’s durable, easily dyed, absorbent, soft, and comfortable to touch. These characteristics make it the fabric of choice for clothing, towels, bedding, and more.

We’re not the first people to recognize the virtues of this versatile fiber. Cotton has been cultivated globally for thousands of years. From underwear to overcoats, clothing continues to be the most common use for cotton. The same features that make cotton ideal for clothing make it perfect for upholstery.

Like your clothing, all upholstery, including cotton, must be cleaned periodically for appearance and health. Furniture manufacturers recommend cleaning every 12-24 months. Failure to do so can result in an unwanted appearance change called soil staining. Soil staining occurs when soils, oils, and pollutants adhere to the fibers and oxidize. This can result in permanent dulling of colors and changes to fabric texture.

I was so impressed I had them clean the tiled areas especially the kitchen floor where the grout was terribly discolored. I noticed the difference every time i entered the kitchen. Even more impressive was the follow up call to check on my experience. That’s a sign of a good company. So I offered to write this recommendation because I had a difficult time finding good reviews for carpet cleaners.

I want to recommend Van’s Carpet Cleaning Service for both carpet and tile. A small flood discolored part ofc my wall-to-wall carpet while I was out of town. It was particularly noticeable because there had been a dirty floor mat on top of that part of the rug. I chose Van’s because they do real steam cleaning and their IICRC certification which Consumer Report recommends using while selecting a carpet cleaner. Even before I committed to use them, Ernie came out to estimate the cost and sprayed something to start working on the stain. Now it is almost gone. I doubt anyone else would know it was ever stained. The whole carpet looks fantastic even the darker frequently walked paths into the mbr and kitchen are gone. The carpet only been vacuumed and never professionally cleaned since we moved in almost 7 years ago so the paths were quite visible.

I just had Van’s stretch carpet, clean carpet, and clean upholstery. GREAT job! Starting with the initial visit, very professional and helpful. Even helped me decide what I didn’t need to do! Appreciated the honest assessment and guidance. Thank you!

I recently use Van’s Carpet Cleaning to not only clean my area rugs and upholstered furniture, but also to clean my wood laminate flooring. They did a wonderful, thorough job. This is not the first time I’ve used them. I am more than satisfied with the results. They are professional people, expert in their tasks.

Just this week had Vans come in to clean some cushions and pillows on our lanai furniture. We really appreciated the courtesy call the day before(we didn’t need reminding but were glad for the confirmation that we had not been forgotten).They arrived exactly on time and did a great job on our upholstery. I would not hesitate to have them back for any of the several services they offer; they will be our “first choice” in the future.

We called Van’s on the recommendation of DOC’s Restoration staff in Summerfield and are glad we did. Ivy VanGorder was great in timely scheduling the work during a day when the seller allowed us in just before the closing so furniture could be delivered the following week. Ernie arrived on time and was a true professional. It was a pleasure to have them complete our rug cleaning in our home. Van’s Rug Cleaning went out of their way to get us to our newly purchased home with a spotless rug. A definite return customer here! Veterans tell them who you are and they will hook you up!

Great Experience
We recently had Van’s in our home to take care of a bad stain on a bedroom carpet-Not only were they professional and thorough, but they weren’t sure that they could eradicate the stain, they did not charge us!!!! Well, the stain came out, and we had them back to do the rest of our carpeted areas! Highly recommend-great quality work, pleasant and knowledgeable staff and trustworthy.

------
We have used Van’s Carpet Cleaning service for both wall-to-wall carpet and area rugs. Both times they have given great results accompanied by great personal service. They treat your carpet as if it was their own.
You can’t go wrong with Van’s Carpet Cleaning.

Van’s just came over to stretch and clean my bedroom rug. I had tried another company three times and they never responded. The day I emailed Van’s, Ivy called me and was very nice and set up a time to have an estimate done. The gentleman came the next day and was very pleasant. They actually came out on the 24th and did the work. The service tech was professional in every way and did a fantastic job on both the stretching of the rug and the shampooing. Service is everything to me and this company was all about customer service. Thank you......

I used VAN’s twice this year. First for my area rug and then for my two living room chairs. As usual service was great and results terrific. I would highly recommend.

We just had Van’s clean our carpet and 2 area rugs. Because we have wool area rugs, they took them to their facility to clean them. The rugs look amazing. Carpets look great too. Excellent job. Will definitely use them again.

When Was the Last Time You Had Your Rugs Professionally Cleaned?

When Was the Last Time You Had Your Rugs Professionally Cleaned?

Don't get caught holding and owning a rug you didn't want. Protect yourself with proper cleaning so that you can FALL in love with it again.

Rugs should be regularly cleaned - but not cleaned in the home. Why not?

There are Two Main Reasons:

  1. The first is that you are not getting the rug thoroughly cleaned.
  2. In most cases, you are causing long-term damage to those woven textiles.

In-plant rug cleaning is recommended for Oriental rugs and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like wall-to-wall carpet. Van's cares for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our rug spa that has all new and improved cleaning equipment where it will receive our very thorough Eight Step Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot removal. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.

Call us right now to have us inspect your rug - Van's Carpet Cleaning 352-669-1540!

Filtration Soiling

You may have noticed it in your own home, or the home of a neighbor or friend-dark, dirty-looking lines in the carpet around the baseboards, under doors and on stairs.

What is it? Can it be removed? Will it come back? The dark greyish or black discolorations that occur around the perimeter of rooms and in the doorways of some houses can sometimes be a source of embarrassment and frustration.

Our customers rely on us not only to clean their carpets but also to educate them about how to maintain their carpet. Before we explain what these mysterious dark lines are, we’ll talk about what they are not. Contrary to what you may think, it has absolutely nothing to do with accumulated dust from poor housekeeping. It is not a defect in the carpet. And although some believe it to be mold, it is not. Even pest control companies have been wrongly accused of causing these unsightly lines with their treatments.

So, what IS it? It’s called filtration soiling.
