Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

Our team here at SERVPRO of South Philadelphia / SE Delaware County provides carpet cleaning for commercial or residential properties in the Philadelphia area.  We are equipped with a number of cleaning products and equipment depending on the type of carpet in need of cleaning.  First one of our technicians will identify the type of carpet or rug, and go from there while wearing their booties on their feet.  A pre-spray will be applied and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes for the fibers to loosen up, along with a deodorizer.  A carpet rake will be used next to buff out any stains on the carpet or rug.  The rotor machine scrubs with a brush on the bottom of it and has a tank on top to fill with chemicals.  The chemicals used for this are a shampoo, defoamer, and another splash of deodorizer.  After that, they steam clean the area with a hot water extractor.

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
Preventative maintenance actions include: 
  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.
