After a period of years, depending on soiling, traffic and installation, carpet may need to be restreched. If you have “buckles” in your carpet, we recommend carpet restretching. We use a power stretcher to get your carpet as tight or tighter than when it was new. If you have holes, seams coming apart or any other damage to your carpet, an expert carpet repair can be done for you.


We continue to use the most innovative methods available in order to dry your home or business as quickly as possible, with minimal damage to the structure, finishes, furniture, and other possessions. We work directly with your insurance company to ensure that your claim is handled quickly, and with the personal treatment you deserve.


Our in-plant rug cleaning is recommended for oriental rugs and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like wall-to-wall carpet. Extreme Carpet Cleaning cares for the finest — to the most basic — rugs from around the world. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning plant where it will receive our very thorough 9-Step Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot removal. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.

Here’s what you can expect of our process:

Step 1: Pre-Inspection and Pick Up

We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We will outline the expected results and cleaning “prescription”. Our company will come to your home to pick up your rug, or you may drop it by our shop.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal

Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago, the Eureka Company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide 87 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to clean the rugs from the front and back. A machine called a pile lifter, special vacuum attachments and any many other methods are implemented. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.

Step 3: Pre-Condition

Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

Step 5: Shampoo

Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.

Step 6: Rinse or Wash

Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

Step 7: Speed Dry

Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.

Step 8: Finishing

When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

Step 9: Post Inspection and Delivery

Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.


Routine cleaning of ceramic and marble floors is key to preventing damage and keeping your flooring beautiful. There are three things the homeowner should be aware of: Prevention, Cleaning without damage, and Stain removal.


There are two types of prevention: The daily things that the homeowner can do, and professional services that provide future protection.

The homeowner should prevent damaging grit tracked in by foot. Large mats placed at each outside door will collect outside grit and soil. These mats should be shaken or vacuumed frequently. The floor should be vacuumed frequently. Be sure that the vacuum lifts the grit and soil and does not push it around.

Prevent contact between staining materials and the floor. Put plastic castors under wood and metal furniture feet. Metals will oxidize (rust) and wood will leach tannins. Put plastic trays under potted plants. The pot itself can stain the floor and dark stains are leached from the plant soil. Do not use rubber pads under rugs; the rubber contains sulfur. Also do not use rough fiber pads; they can scratch marble and ceramic.

Wipe up spills promptly. Moisture will pull stains into the minute crevasses between marble crystals. Acids will dissolve the calcium carbonate in the marble, creating dull, etched spots.

Professional applications of stone sealers are effective in preventing stains from penetrating marble. Professional resurfacing of dull, scratched or worn marble or ceramic will create a hard, smooth finish that resists soiling and stains. A professionally resurfaced floor is also easier to clean because the smooth surface does not have uneven spots that trap dirt.


A nylon stain-resist carpet is made with two protective properties: The first is an acid dye blocker that is basically a clear dye that fills the extra dye sites in a fiber. This helps to keep “foreign” dyes (such as red dye in a beverage) from penetrating the carpet fiber. The second property is called a “fluorochemical”. It is commonly known as 3M Scotchgard® or DuPont Teflon®. This treatment helps keep spillage from actually getting to the acid dye blocker, but its biggest job is to resist dry soil.

By resisting dry soil, less soil bonds to the carpet, therefore being picked up by your vacuum or cleaning. Making sure that you have a sufficient amount of protector on your carpet will help keep the soil from bonding to the carpet. Once it bonds to the carpet, it acts like sandpaper on your traffic area. Once the traffic area yarns are broken down, there is no way to bring them back to their original state.

There are two primary ways that factory protector is removed from a carpet:

1. Regular foot traffic. Over a period of 6 months to 2 years depending on the traffic, a significant amount of protector can be removed from your traffic areas and needs to be reapplied.

2. High alkaline cleaner. The use of harsh chemicals on the carpet that will strip its protection.
