So what do you do after Van’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service professionally cleans your carpet?
Follow these 5 guidelines on propert carpet care and you will get many years out of your carpet and keep it look it’s best!
- Check the Warranty.-
Copies of specific warranties on your carpet purchase may be available from your carpet retailer. Stain resist warranties can vary from 5 to 20 years. ALL STAIN RESIST WARRANTIES REQUIRE REGULAR CLEANING AND IMMEDIATE SPOT REMOVAL.
- Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum!
It is said that the three most important rules for maintaining carpet are vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Vacuum your carpet often. Once or twice a week at least. Vacuuming removes the sharp soil that can cut and slice the fiber causing premature wear. Much of this soil is not visible to the eye. Remove any loose particles such as loose food, leaves, pieces of crayon, bugs, etc. as these items can cause a spot on the carpet.
- Have Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned-
Professional Cleaning by a professional, certified firm should be done at least every 12 months according to DuPont and major carpet manufacturers. Heavy traffic areas may need it more often. Manufacturers warranties require professional cleaning at least every 18 - 24 months to retain texture retention warranties.
Rule of thumb: Clean your carpet before it looks visibly soiled.
- Remove Spots Immediately-
Spots that are not immediately removed can turn into permanent stains very easily. Always use a spot cleaner that is recommended by the carpet manufacturer or your trained, certified professional cleaner! Many "over the counter" spotters leave too much soap residue that leaves a sticky residue behind that will make your spots return!
- Have Carpet Protector Re-Applied-
The soil resistor that is built into stain resistant nylon carpet is removed with regular foot traffic and harsh cleaners. To keep your carpet cleaner longer, have your protector reapplied each time you have your carpet professionally cleaned.

Tile & Grout Cleaning and Restoration
For most, the old fashion mop is the cleaning tool of choice. Although this appears to work fine at first, eventually you start to notice the tile getting darker in the traffic areas. Moping no longer gets the job done. Dirt and soil from the mop has been absorbed into the grout between the tile leaving it dull and dingy, even on your darker grout colors.
Next you break out the toothbrush. It's amazing what you can do with a tooth brush and several long days of tedious labor on your hands and knees, however, if you have more important things to do with your time, there is a better way.
Our powerful truck mounted cleaning system will restore the natural beauty of your ceramic tile and grout quickly and economically. With Van's your tile and grout floors will sparkle once again, and you save time and money. We blast dirt and grime from the tile and grout with a powerful jet of super heated cleaning solutions. Simultaneously, the dirt and water are vacuumed.
After cleaning, Van’s Carpet Cleaning highly recommends protecting your grout color by sealing it. The sealer is invisible but prevents soils and liquids from penetrating the surface. Maintenance is easier and more effective.
Our professional cleaning and polishing add sparkle to your surfaces and even buff out minor scuffs and scratches. We clean a variety of natural stone surfaces including marble, granite, limestone and slate. When cleaning tile we also thoroughly wash difficult grout.
Van’s Carpet Cleaning specializes in many different surfaces such as:
- Tile & Grout Cleaning
- Marble Polishing
- Limestone Polishing
- Granite Polishing
- Travertine Polishing
Curious to find out how much soil is actually on your upholstery that "looks" clean, simply take a white terry cloth towel and put it over the end of your vacuum attachment hose. Turn on the vacuum (be sure that you don't let the vacuum suck up the towel) gently massage the fabric with the cloth. You will have a dark spot which is embedded soil in the fabric.

Van’s Carpet Cleaning can assist you with professional upholstery cleaning services. Upholstery gives your home a whole different look but when it starts to get dirty, something got spill or your pet had an accident it won’t look so beautiful anymore. Every now and again, you probably notice a spot on your upholstery and tackle it using household upholstery cleaner, right? It’s quick, it’s easy and most of the time, it’s pretty effective to cover up unsightly stains on your furniture.
But what happens when you can’t remove a stain with your usually trusty upholstery cleaner? It may be time to invest in a bit more than a cloth and spray bottle. Furthermore, if you can’t see any visible stains, does that really mean your upholstery is clean? Not necessarily. Even when stains are not visible, upholstery carries bacteria that, if not removed, can potentially affect your health. This bacteria can cause sickness; so the sooner you invest in upholstery cleaning, the better off you will be.
Upholstery Cleaning is also proven to improve the air quality in your home. Mold, dust, mildew and other allergens can live in your upholstery, going unnoticed to the human eye. Regular, professional furniture cleaning can prevent unnecessary pollutants from spreading through the air and into your body.
Van’s Carpet Cleaning uses a 3 step deep steam cleaning process to clean your upholstery and restore it’s beauty again.
- First we apply a specially formulated powerful pre-conditioner to loosen dirt, spots, body oils, dust mites, pet dander or pet stains.
- After applying the pre-conditioner we use a special brushed to agitate the pre-conditioner on the fabric of your upholstery to removed as much dirt as possible and to treat any stain or spot.
- The final step is steam cleaning of your upholstery with a ph-balanced fiber rinse to remove all dirt and cleaning solution from your upholstery leaving a cleaner and residue free freshly clean upholstery.
Water Damage Restoration
24 Hour Water Damage Response- Flood Restoration
When your water heater breaks, pipes burst, or heavy rains flood your home Vans Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Water Extraction services can give you peace of mind.

4 Immediate Steps You Must Take:
When water damage occurs, even a few hours can make the difference in saving expensive carpets and furniture. Please read the following to minimize your losses:
Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also, be cautious of slippery wet carpets and floors. Stay away from raw sewage backups, which contain nasty bacteria that are harmful to your health!
STOP THE SOURCE AND TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION!
If you haven’t located the source of the water, call us immediately at 352-669-1540 or 1-800-691-2229 and we will guide you through this (it is very crucial to know what to do!)
Wood furniture will cause stains which cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are difficult to remove and may be permanent. 95% of water damage jobs are restorable, and the 5% which aren’t restored are mostly caused by not removing furniture. So either move furniture that’s even near water or place something under the legs made from plastic or rubber, such as trash can bags, an old shower curtain or bathtub mat.
