This is a small business that knows what they are doing! I bought a groupon for 4 areas of carpet cleaning to get our terribly stained carpet at least clean, if not without stains. I never assumed these deep stains (which were there when we moved in [foreclosure house]) would come up! OUR CARPET IS COMPLETELY SPOTLESS!! I was amazed!!! I was very happy to see that it cleaned up so well and this company was very easy to work with, great prices (from the groupon) and they were able to come out the very next day! I couldn't suggest them more. I will use them for all of our rent houses in Oklahoma. Thank you so much Pennington! ---- I also want to point out when looking at reviews take into account people who were satisfied with the business generally don't leave reviews. So take a moment and think (Did this business only have (5) people serviced in all of its operating time?) No. They didn't. They had a lot of satisfied customers who didn't bother leaving a review. Just something to think about.

I locatedthis company first through a Groupon, but have had them back on numerous occasions. They are consistently friendly and helpful. They do a good job under less than stellar conditions: I have 2 badly-trained dogs and they are good about getting stains up. You know those old stains that have a habit of reappearing? They remove and keep them gone longer than anyone I've had work on the carpet. They are also reasonably priced. I'd hire them again anytime.
Dillon gave my 18 year old ceramic tile a facelift. My tile and grout look brand new. He did an amazing job and is a very nice man. His dedication and professionalism shows in his work. Angela helped schedule my estimate and service appointment. She was extremely nice and professional as well. She followed up to remind me of each appointment which was extremely helpful. If you need any grout services this is the company to call.
As always On the Eve of Thanksgiving day, we invited our relatives for supper and toddlers too joined the party and created big mess by pouring juices and dropping ice cream on carpet. Very next day i dropped call to KPA Carpet Cleaning Services for carpet cleaning services.They were quick to respond and restored the beauty and charm of my carpet. Thanks again Michael for the service.
We were leasing a duplex in Mustang...and it was that time for us to prepare to vacate. Our carpet was pretty dingy, but the guys from Sunbell brought it back to life! My carpet looked brand new and when we moved out we got all of our deposit back. Very professional and extremely nice people. I would recommend them over and over again!
A great experience from my first call to the office to the finished job! Efficient, reliable, polite, professional--I can't say enough about the service they provide. I had first called another Servicemaster franchise and my experience was quite the opposite, but my faith has been restored by this excellent company.
After my baby girl 1st year birthday my beautiful silk carpet turned out to be a complete mess. On suggestion from my mom i contacted KPA Carpet Cleaning Services who diligently transformed my soiled carpet into brand new as earlier.Thank You KPA Carpet Cleaning Services and I highly recommend their services
Never thought It was possible to have a carpet company be so honest with there pricing and and Still get the job done. I moved out my home needed someone to quickly get my carpets cleaned. Longs story short, I received my $500 dollar deposit back without a trace of a pet. Job well done. Thanks.
Excellent service and attention to detail. I had them clean a carpet and 2 matresses. I will have them back in the spring to clean my wood floors as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a cleaning service.
I had an amazing experience with KPA Carpet Cleaning services. I invited them for carpet repair, after everything was done my carpet was looking like new one and was damaged part of my carpet was so well repaired.
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:
- Apply a cleaning solvent directly on the stain, if needed, and allow it to soak in for a few seconds.
- Use a damp cloth to blot the spot. Don't scrub or apply too much pressure, as this might only further embed the stain into the carpet or rug.
- Rinse the cloth and continue blotting until the stain is removed.
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.
Why You Should Hire a Carpet Cleaner Service
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 Carpets
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.
What to Ask a Professional Service
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.
Decide Which Method to Use
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.
Research Online or in Person
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.
Ask About Employees and Services Offered
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.
Getting a Quote
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.
Choosing a Carpet Cleaner
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.
Owning Your Own
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:
- Attachments: Some models include special attachments that work on upholstery, stairs, bare floors, or small spaces.
- Brushes: Some units may not use a brush to agitate the carpet, while others might use a stationary one or multiple actuating brushes.
- Hose length: Bigger machines can be hard to maneuver around a room. Having a detachable hose of considerable length can make it easier to clean open spaces as well as more cramped areas.
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
