Think about it: Most people are not happy with franchises. Would you prefer McDonald’s or a chef-owned restaurant? The key is to think beyond simply name recognition and consider the reputation of the company you are considering to hire.
Your home is more than a commodity: it’s sacred. It’s more than merely a collection of valuables. It includes the items that you have acquired and used to create the experiences and memories of your life. We understand that. It influences how we approach each project. Your valuables will be protected during the course of the work.

” In The end you should do the right thing even if it is hard “
That is a quote my parents often use to say to me when I was a child and it’s a principle I still live by today. There are those who clean rugs that will say don’t worry about removing rugs we can clean them in your home it’s much easier then rolling them up and sending them out. But is it the right way to clean area or oriental rugs ? The simple answer is No. Why?
It’s a waste of money going over the top of the rug will make it look better, but it’s far from being really clean in fact 90% of allergens and dust are still in the rug.
Just because a company cleans carpets does not mean they have the knowledge or equipment to clean wool rugs. Often times lack of knowledge leads to damaged rugs color bleeding and shrinkage
Also wool rugs need the right cleaning agents ones that are lower PH and carefully made for wool.
Critical steps are skipped when rugs are cleaned in a home one dusting or dry soil removal without this step the homes air quality is not improved. Second is drying wool rugs are tightly knit and dry slow if not cared for properly can cause dry rot or even worse mold.
Rinsing most area or oriental rugs are on wood floors so proper rinsing is not possible and that cause cleaning agents left behind and rapid resoiling.
So don’t waste your money get it done right and by professionals at Carpenter’s Cleaning Services Video Coming soon !

Carpet is a large investment and you have shopped everywhere to get just the right color and design. So over time with the change of seasons in Vermont eventually the carpet needs to be cleaned. So the question is How often should I clean it ?
The reasons for carpet cleaning in Vermont are quite basic. We clean to maintain a healthier environment for ourselves and family or employees. We clean to improve the appearance of the carpet. Plus it extends the life of the carpet.
When we make investments like a car we know we need to maintain it. We change the oil, we give it a tuneup. Hey in Vermont we wash off the salt so it does not rust. If we ignore these basics then our cars life and value decrease. the same principle applies to carpet cleaning if we maintain it with regular cleaning then it will extend the life and value of our investment.
So here are some factors to consider when determining how often you would clean your carpet:
1) What type of carpet ?
2) What amount of traffic ?
3) What type of soiling is involved ?
4) What is the situation in the home or building to control soil ?
5) Are pets in the area ?
6) What appearance level do I want to keep ?
7) What will my budget allow ?
8) How often do I vacuum ?
After thinking about these questions consider the following facts.
All of us would love to have carpet that does not dirty. Unfortunately, all things fall down and your carpet gets the brunt of it. Carpet is amazing in that it can hide soil for some time. So even if it does not look bad it can create a unhealthy environment. This is true at a home or a business.
Cleaning on a regular basis is one of the most important facts. In a home with a family of four the rule of thumb is at least once a year. Also because we live in Vermont we can’t open windows in the middle of winter so we want healthy home with good air quality and a clean carpet will help. Some think that over cleaning of the carpet will shorten the life span of the carpet. Not true, the opposite occurs. When soil left unchecked, it wears away the fibers and breeds contamination. Professional periodic cleaning keeps those contaminates under control.
But beware of unprofessional carpet cleaners because they leave behind more soapy sticky residue that attracts dirt and causes rapid resoiling. That’s why we use a soap free product, all natural, a safer cleaning choice. Cleaning carpets is not a want it should be a must for your family’s health. We have cleaned carpets throughout Lamoille and Chittenden County. Please let our family serve yours.
First I would like to assure you that we have cleaned many tile and stone floors throughout Lamiolle County all the way to Chittenden County Vermont. We have had great results and many happy customers with that said here is a brief explanation of our cleaning process
First, we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of floor and allow it to soak for about 15 minutes. We do not use harsh acids as these damage tiles and grout. This pre-treatment loosens accumulated soil, grease, and contaminants, and prepares the surface for our cleaning process.
Turbo Pressure Washing
We use a pressure washing system designed specifically for tile and grout, acrylic, and epoxy surfaces. Our truck mounted cleaning process washes the floor to extract soil and grease from the pores in the tile and grout or other hard surface floors. The system generates water pressure of 1000 to 1200 P.S.I and water temperature of 240 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. The floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose, which sucks the cleaning the cleaning disk to the floor, and confines the water so no over spray. The vacuum draws the dirty contaminated water out to a tank on the truck, and we dispose of it according to EPA standards. You will be surprised with our process which removes 85 to 95 % of it’s original appearance. Some stains will not come out such as dyes because they dye the grout. But the combination of heat , water pressure, and suction removes most stains.
After we clean the floor and allow it to dry, we seal the floor with our impregnating sealer. The tile and grout floor absorbs the sealer into it’s pores, creating a barrier against future staining. The sealer does not change the appearance of the floors by adding a shine or luster. Instead, it preserves the natural beauty of the surface.
We will provide instructions for your in house or commercial cleaning people in how to take proper care of the floors, and show them the proper cleaners to use.
In addition, we will contact you to pre-arranged cycle and offer our services to do touch ups and resealing as needed. A regular maintenance program will keep your floors in top notch condition.
So if you live in Vermont and our tried of looking at dirty grout or ugly tile don’t wait get it restored. We at Carpenter’s Cleaning Services would love to help !
In Vermont we like to do it ourselves. You can go into Hannaford in Essex or Shaw’s in Waterbury or Stowe, even the lumber yard and find carpet cleaning rental equipment. So why not do it yourself? What’s the difference between those machines and the professional ones? Can you do as good of a job as a professional and save money? These are important questions in this day and age of budget crunching. Your carpet is one of your larger investments you make as a family. So keeping it looking good and making it last a long time is important.
So what is the difference? Between do it yourself cleaning and professional cleaning?
1) The cleaning quality
Professional truck-mount system recover 98% of the cleaning solutions and water that are put down by the cleaning process. How much does a rental unit remove, depends on how many passes you make with the cleaning wand. One study showed that it would take about 20 cleaning passes by a rental unit to match the quality of a truck-mount unit. Professional cleaning equipment has 400% more vacuum then a rental unit. This removes more dirt and soil, and leaves the carpet dryer.
2) Hot water cleans better
Professional truck-mounted equipment provides it’s own heat rather then depending on the hot water heater. With the extra heat it makes the cleaning solution five times more effective then rental equipment. But that’s not all professional equipment is equilibrium-balanced in how it cleans. That means the perfect balance between cleaning solution added to the carpet and vacuum up. This maximizes cleaning performance while providing more rapid drying. So you can get back to normal life sooner.
3) Your Time
How much do you value your time ? To do a good job with a rental machine it will take eight times longer, then a professional. It’s also hard work, moving furniture, leaning over all the time, edging, emptying and refilling. Plus if the carpets are left to wet then shrinkage, mildew and many other problems occur.
Will you really save money doing yourself ? Maybe but maybe not, renting the machine is only part of the cost. You also have to purchase cleaning detergents, spotters, or other chemicals that are not professional quality. Some are harsh and dangerous to store around children and pets. The cost can quickly rise.
These are just four reasons to consider when contemplating cleaning your own carpets. Sometimes it just makes more sense to call the professional cleaner who can handle the complexities of carpet cleaning and save you time. Call today and enjoy peace of mind. 802 498 4702
