About Chem Clean
I got into the cleaning business about six years ago as a summer job. It then grew to a full a full time job and the eventual take over of this company. From there I started taking certified courses in the proper care of carpets and upholstery. I became a member of the
Better Business Bureau to portray the quality of my work. I am constantly looking for enhanced chemicals and solutions that clean better and that are EPA approved for the environment. Because of my three boys and our Black Lab, Macy, I understand that life happens in a home. I know how to restore your carpets and upholstery back to a like new condition.
Here is a list of stains that I have successfully removed out of clients carpets. Not all carpets are created equal in stain resistance. Some fibers respond very well to spotters and solvents and some do not. Each stain will be treated specifically and you will be informed as to the success rate for that spot.

Six Steps to a Clean Carpet
There are six steps that I take to care for your carpet and help the over all health of your home.
- The first step is a detailed examination of the carpet that you would like cleaned. During this initial walk through I look for walk patterns, any stains and possible problem areas with the carpet. If there are any pets in the home, point out any possible accidents and favorite areas they like to lie. I will also ask when the last time it was professionally cleaned, how often you vacuum, and what kind of spot cleaners that you use.
- The second step is to determine what type of fiber you have in the carpet. There are four commons types, and each one reacts differently to cleaning. A simple test is used to find out what kind of fiber you have from nylon, olefin, polyester, and wool.
- The third step is to create the pre-spray that has been determined by the information gathered. Depending on the condition of the carpet, I can adjust the strength of the cleaning solution to achieve proper soil extraction.
- The fourth step in the cleaning process is proper agitation of the carpet and pre-spray. It is not enough to spray the carpet with a cleaning solution. The tool that helps me achieve this is what I call a super scrubber. It has two long soft nylon brushes that dig in deep and effectively coat all fibers with the pre-spray.
- The fifth step in cleaning your carpet is neutralizing chemicals and extracting all foreign material. My final cleaning solution that I use on your carpet is designed to remove all chemicals leaving it residue free and when dry soft and fluffy.
- The sixth and final step in the proper care of your carpets is applying a protectant. This is not required, but is recommended by me. If the carpet manufactures feel that it is important to apply Scotchguard or DuPont Teflon Guard, then so do I. The reason it has to be reapplied is that it slowly wears of with walking on the carpet. The basic purpose of it is to repel dirt and grime so when you vacuum, normal traffic easily comes out.
