Very Very Detailed- a little Pricey but I would use them again. I used them because I was having an open House on one of My properties. After it was Cleaned I didnt want to move.
This business was referred to me by a friend of the owner- My house has NEVER been this spotless- they arrived on time and took 20 mins longer than I was quoted for; Since I was one of their earlier customers they didnt charge me extra, I will use again.
Brandon has done our house about a couple of times and does a excellent job every time. Our carpets are not so new but after he clean them they look like new and they stay clean for quite a while. So it's time to havethem do there magic again and there are carpet cleaning guys l recommend them to all my friends and family there the best give them a try you'll be glad you did
Last week I had a party and a huge bowl of tomato soup fell onto our carpet. Man that thing made our carpet look like a crime scene. I even thought that I might have to get the carpet removed, but my sister recommended to me Fontana carpet cleaning services. They were great! They came in and were done in a few hours. There was no trace of any tomato soup spilling there. You guys saved us!
These guys always provide me with the best cleaning services. From cleaning my tiles, to my carpets and all the way to my air ducts; you guys always do such a phenomenal job when it comes to getting my home into tip-top shape. I am a clean freak, so I NEED my housed cleaned every so often. Your technicians are always so nice and courteous and they always bear with me when it comes to answering all of my dying questions that I have and just keeping me updated with their cleaning process. Thanks!
D&E Carpet Cleaning is the best! I had been asking around to find someone reputable to clean the carpets in my home. A good friend suggested that I try D&E since she spotted the van performing a job in her neighborhood. I took a chance and called the number. I spoke with Brandon who immediately put me at ease with his knowledge in carpet cleaning and his customer friendly tone. He was on time and did a great job! I will definitely refer this company!
Came right on time and they made my couch look just as if I had bought it that very day. These guys had successfully went ahead and removed this latex paint spot and red sharpie stain. Everything came out and they made it look so easy. Not all cleaning go as smoothly as this company and I am just happy that I found a great cleaning service such as this one. Wonderful services over, will definitely be using these guys again!
I love family owned businesses such as ones like these! I have gone with the bigger guys and although their businesses are bigger, you just don't get the same interaction as you would with small owned businesses like this. I felt like these guys really comprehended where I was coming from. Because of the excellent communication I felt like it translated right onto my carpet, and my carpet came out wonderful when everything was said and done! Support good small businesses such as this one right here! You will not regret their work.
The work could not have been any nicer -- these guys worked really hard in trying to make us happy and they succeeded. We are cat owners and they shed all night and day so it is pretty impossible to keep up with all of the cleaning. By the time these guys were called, we were living in fur den!!!. It had looked like a cat and their friends through a part in our home. It's just amazing how much cat hair was pulled from our carpet after the cleaning. There was so much cat fur that you could've probably made a cat fur coat! Thanks for the service!
The owner of this company cares about customer satisfaction, you can tell that he takes it serious. If there are any issues; let him know and he is extremely proactive in resolving any issues. It is great to know that it is easy to get scheduled in for an appointment with these guys. I have went ahead and used their services two times and twice I have had both my appointments scheduled within 24 hours. Thats nice. They had really went through every length in assisting me in making sure that I was a satisfied customer. I appreciate all of the effort and the helpfulness; especially when I needed the clean up as quick as possible the second time around! Quality service, quality business!
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
