SMALL OPERATION (Quality Control)
"This is not a job for us, it's our business!"
When most carpet cleaners come into a home, they're thinking "How fast can I do this job and get to the next one?"When we come into a home, we are thinking, "How can we please this person?"We consider ourselves as intensive cleaners (which takes more time and effort) compared to economy, conservative, and dry cleaners.
Remember! Carpet Cleaners are not created equal.
Superior Flushing Power! Superior Cleaning Power! Superior Drying Power! Total Fluid Control!
These unique tools are part of the combination that give Superior Results!
We are the only company, that we know of, in the Bay Area that uses these tools in conjunction with a Truck-Mounted System.
This combination is potent!
Cleaning Tools are not created equal.(More about these tools in the "Upholstery" section.)
TRUCK-MOUNTED CARPET CLEANING SYSTEM:
Extra Cleaning Power!Extra Cleaning Power compared to Portable and Dry Cleaning Systems.It is quieter than many other Truck-Mounted Systems.
Carpet Cleaning Systems are not created equal.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE CLEANING AGENTS:
There's an abundant amount of cleaning agents out there that a carpet cleaner can choose from. Many of them are effective and can help make your carpets look very nice. Are they safe though? Seeing we are the people who are working and breathing in these cleaning agents all the time, we are going to be real particular in what we choose to use for you and us!Note: Some carpet cleaners do not precondition the carpet and some preconditon only the real soiled areas. We precondition everything. Carpets are made to hide soil. When you actually see the soil, that means it's very soiled at that point.
Cleaning Agents are not created equal.
SUPERIOR AND QUICK-DRYING CARPET PROTECTION:
There's "Scotchgard" and "Dupont Teflon". These are Brand Names! There are many other types of carpet protectors out there. We chose the one that we use because it's superior in repelling both water and oil based spills and it doesn't add on drying time for the carpet. It is a dry chemical. Most carpet protectors are water based and could add on 4-8 hours of drying time if applied correctly.
Note: Do you really know what's being applied and if it's being applied correctly to your carpet. That takes a lot of trust in the company you are dealing with.
Carpet Protectors are not created equal.
EFFECTIVE SPOT AND STAIN REMOVAL:
Generally, most spots and stains can come out easily with our normal spotters. Occasionally, there are tough stains out there such as coffee, tea, vomit, urine, wine, red dye, ink, etc. that need the use of stronger and maybe aggressive chemicals to remove or at least reduce them.Spotters and stain reducers are not created equal.
PET ODOR REMOVAL:
There are many different types of pet odor removal products out there. At this time, we use an effective two part process. The first part is a pretreatment to break down the urine particles for easier removal which will help in reducing the stain and odor. The second part is a very strong deodorizer to kill the remaining odor that it comes in contact with.Pet odor removal systems are not created equal.

“We've gone through all the chain carpet cleaners--- Stanley Steemer, Coit and on and on. All of them send a kid who has no knowledge of carpets and stains or anything beyond just pushing the machine around. They take no pride in doing a good job and we never hire them back. They never do much more than make our carpets wet and soggy. I could tell by your website that you knew carpets and took pride in your work. Our carpets look like new. GREAT JOB AND WE APPRECIATE IT.”
Julie Beach, San Rafael
"Wow, your carpet cleaning was awesome... I'll definitely give you guys a call next year. Thank you so much! I'll refer you guys to everyone I know."

|"ELLIOT, WE HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED IN YOUR SERVICE, BUT THIS LAST CLEANING WAS SO WELL DONE I HAD TO LET YOU KNOW! I KNOW IT IS HARD WORK, AND TRYING TO MAKE A 20 YEAR OLD CARPET LOOK NEW IS IMPOSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY WITH ONE OR TWO DOGS LIVING IN OUR HOME, BUT YOU CAME CLOSE!
What Does It Take to Do Carpet Repair?
'The Temperament of a Watchmaker'
(article from the March 2012 Atlas Online Newsletter)
We promote Gary Myers in all our online newsletters.
You might be wondering just what he can do.
Gary is a carpet repair specialist.
The first thing you need to know about Gary is that he has many years of experience. He is old school, being taught a far more demanding protocol. He installed carpet for several years and then went into retail before returning to become a union supervisor. In the 80s, he opened a profitable retail store. Now he's semi-retired and specializes in carpet repair work.
Not everyone realizes that carpets can be repaired.
The most common problems that Gary sees are:
- Bumps and ridges in the carpet
- Holes in the carpet (pets clawing at the door jam)
- Permanent stains on the carpet (bleach for instance)
- Padding damaged by pets repeatedly urinating
