Will You be Happy with Your Carpet After it’s Cleaned?

Consideration is the type of fiber. Just because they are all soft and fluffy does not mean they are all the same. An experienced cleaner is trained to identify types of fibers and use their knowledge of that fiber’s characteristics to anticipate potential challenges. Here are a few examples:

  • If a carpet is wool you know that it has excellent resilience, so those crushed traffic areas and furniture indentations have a good chance of coming out. But wool is more easily stained by proteins than other fibers, so some foods, pet urine and other protein sources like blood will be difficult to remove.
  • Olefin carpets do not have the resiliency of wool, so high traffic areas tend to pack down and lose that fluffy texture over time.
    However, Olefin has excellent stain-resistance and colorfastness.
  • Stain-resist nylon has excellent resilience and good stain and soil repellency, so carpets made with nylon tend to be the best overall performers. However, depending on how the fiber was dyed, Nylon may be bleached by some household chemicals or sunlight.
  • Polyester fibers have an affinity for oily soils, so food or petroleum grease spots will be more difficult to remove. But Polyester, like Olefin, is very resistant to stains and bleaching.

The bottom line is that how the carpet looks after cleaning will depend on some factors out of our control. But you can be assured Van’s Carpet Cleaning will produce the best results you can get when we clean your carpets.

What Others Say

I have known Ernie & Ivy for as long as they have been in business. Ernie has done my carpets and several couches and I’ve been very satisfied. Recently I had put my cat to sleep and anticipated getting 2 new kitties so I called Ivy and she promptly scheduled my carpet cleaning so it would be fresh for us and our new 2 “children”. Thanks Ernie & Ivy.
