Surprising Dupont, WA With Carpet Cleaning

Residents in Dupont, WA Have Never Seen Carpet Cleaning Like This!

We have all heard it a thousand times.  “We’ll get your carpet cleaner than anyone else…”  This is the claim made by virtually every carpet cleaner in the Dupont, WA area.  Over the years, some companies have delivered on this promise.  But for most, it’s just talk.

Introducing the Rotovac – A Revolutionary, Patented Carpet Cleaning Technique

These days, its not a big secret anymore that truck-mounted steam cleaning is far and away the preferred method for cleaning carpets.  There is no other method that is able to remove soil, stains, and hair while killing 99.9% of bacteria.  Until now, carpet cleaners have been plagued by the challenges of truly filthy carpet.  Sometimes it seems no matter how hard you scrub and much water heat, pressure, and chemicals you use, some carpets still don’t look that great….until now!

Our patented Rotovac takes the already excellent method of steam cleaning, and trades out the traditional scrub wand for a rotary jet extraction system.  To put the comparison of the regular wand to the Rotovac in perspective, think of a standard wrench compared to a ratchet.  The Rotovac is an advanced, carefully engineered tool designed to drastically increase the amount of cleaning passes per minute, while dramatically decreasing the amount of physical effort required.  When we encounter carpets which require substantial, restorative cleaning, our clients are usually thrilled once we have cleaned even a small section of carpet.

Now, let’s get something straight.  Steam cleaning paired with a quality, manual scrub wand can still create some outstanding results.  In fact, we frequently use a two inch manual scrub with four solution spray jets to transform some pretty nasty carpet.  However, some situations require the extremely “high volume” cleaning that the Rotovac delivers.

I Live in Dupont, WA, My Carpets Are Disgusting, What Should I do?

Frequently, one of the first things homeowners think to do if their carpet is extremely dirty, is to replace it.  BUT WAIT A MINUTE!  Replacing your carpet is an expensive, inconvenient nightmare!  Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning can save your carpet and your money!  Contact us today for a FREE, no obligation estimate!

Carpet Cleaning Olympia – Choosing The Ideal Carpet Cleaner

Have you had bad luck choosing a carpet cleaner in the Olympia, WA area?

When you decide to have your carpeting professionally steam cleaned, the initial idea you will likely choose is to use the business with the most affordable prices.  BE CAREFUL!  Grossbusters’ has noticed that the majority of these kind of carpet cleaners have cut corners!  When organizations of this caliber advertise ‘unbelievable prices,’ ask yourself three beneficial questions.

Have they cut extremely significant operating expenses, such as insurance coverage?

 An sufficient amount of business insurance coverage is not cheap.  Consequently, this is often one of the primary items to get the ax if a company is struggling.  If this cleaner is unable to buy coverage to protect themselves if an disastrous mistake should occur in your home, are they going to be able to manage to pay pay for any destruction to your property or family should they have an mishap?  Business insurance coverage has never been mandatory by law; any person with a WA state issued business license may officially do work without the need for coverage.  BE SURE TO ask your carpet cleaner that you choose to provide a copy of his company’s insurance papers!

Is this carpet cleaning service employing inferior devices?  

Anything other than hot water extraction (steam cleaning) is NOT going to do an sufficient job of cleaning up your carpets, couches or oriental rugs.  Low moisture carpet cleaning such as encapsulation cleaning, dry foam scrubbing, and bonnet cleaning will simply conceal the particles in your carpeting, rugs, and upholstery.  Furthermore, these inferior cleaning devices don’t eradicate germs, fungi, or parasites given that they use only small levels of lukewarm water. These types of dry textile cleaning methods are specifically created for use on commercial carpeting in commercial locations such as boutiques, educational institutions, and churches.  Steam cleaning however is thought to be the best of the best for carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning.  Many hot water extractors (steam cleaners) produce water above 180º F for exceptional cleaning and microorganism killing power. Steam cleaning (hot water extraction) machinery is incredibly costly and in order for cleaners using hot water extractors(steam cleaners) to remain in operation, they must charge more money than the commonly marketed ‘ENTIRE HOUSE FOR $99,’ deal.  Prior to appointing a carpet cleaning business, ask if they do steam cleaning.  If they respond with a “no, we use something else”.

Will this carpet cleaner implement bait & switch practices against me?

 Sketchy cleaners have been doing this for years.  Sadly, hardworking people continue to be swindled out of several hundred of dollars on a daily basis.  What happens is, the individual is impressed by the enticing prices and elects to use the company.  Then, when the technicians are finished working, they spring many hidden expenses on the homeowner resulting in a much bigger total than originally approved upon.  Now, seeing as how the cleaning has already been done, the customer feels pressured to come up with the extra cash despite feeling taken advantage of.  Another position that these businesses exercise is intimidation.  The moment they enter your home, they begin with the extremely high-pressured sales and recommendations for the client.  They begin adding on cost after cost and are extremely militant in their advice until before you know it, the total price is significantly more expensive than principally decided upon.  Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning promises a typed up bill before we do any work.  We try our hardest to provide an accurate price by email or phone.  Then, when our technicians arrive at your home, they will perform a thorough inspection and will notify you if the cost is going to be higher than the calculation that you received over the phone.  Prior to starting work, you will be given a prepared quote that we positively pledge will be all that you will pay when we are finished.

Selecting a carpet cleaning company might seem a tad terrifying to you after reading this article.  Relax; there is at least one carpet cleaning company that will service you and your house with the utmost respect!  Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning has established itself as one of the best carpet cleaning services in WA state.  We are entirely insured, bonded and licensed in the state of WA.  Along with our lawfulness, our specialists have years of experience cleaning carpeting, upholstery and area rugs so you can rest easy knowing that your carpet are in great, knowledgeable hands.  Our dynamic steam cleaning equipment mated to the Rotovac Powerwand produces astonishingly clean carpet, rugs, and upholstery.  Also, you know precisely how much your cleaning will cost before we begin cleaning.  And the greatest part is, our prices are commonly cheaper than all of our competitors.  In fact, if you locate a competitor of ours in the Lacey, Olympia, Lakewood, or Tacoma area that utilizes steam cleaning mated to a rotary cleaning device like the Rotovac, and their quote is lower than ours, we will beat their price by ten percent!  So make the smart choice!  Give us a call today for your FREE estimate!

What is Really in Your Carpet?

What is Really in Your Carpet?     

 

      Many carpet owners believe that the cleanliness of their carpet is reflected by its color and odor – or lack thereof.  They believe that if it looks clean and doesn’t smell bad, it must be clean.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case.  Carpets old and new contain many different threats to the health of humans and pets.  These threats can be extremely serious and go largely unknown to the general public.  The E.P.A. (Environmental Protection Agency) cites indoor air pollution as a top cause of both short-term and long-term diseases.  Grossbusters’ mission is to shed some light on some of the hidden dangers that may be lurking in your carpet and provide the necessary guidance to the best ways to keep your carpet at its safest. 

Brand New Carpet Commonly Contains:

  • Benzene –

       Known to negatively affect the nervous system,  benzene is a known carcinogen and is commonly found in drugs, plastics, rubbers, dyes, glues, and solvents; It may also be in your carpet!  The American Petroleum Institute (API) released a statement in 1948 saying “it is generally considered that the only absolutely safe concentration for benzene is zero.”  Additionally, The US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) categorizes benzene as being a human carcinogen, and detrimental to human health.  Benzene is such a potent toxin, the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) labels any substance that is made up of 0.1% benzene, a carcinogenic hazard.

      Possible health complications associated with overexposure to benzene include: leukemia, drowsiness, dizziness, rapid heart rate, headaches, tremors, confusion, unconsciousness, nausea, vomiting, sleeplessness, convulsions, bone marrow damage, decrease in red blood cells, weakening of the immune system, and even death!  

  • Toluene-

      This Benzene derived carcinogen is commonly found in gasoline, rubber cement, paint thinners, acrylic paints, etc.  Toluene is used as a street drug and is “huffed” to get high.  This chemical is slightly less toxic than benzene but can still cause serious health problems.

       Overexposure to toluene can cause: tiredness, confusion, weakness, drunken-type actions, memory loss, nausea, loss of appetite, loss of hearing, loss of color vision, light-headedness, sleepiness, unconsciousness, and even death. 

  • Acetone-

      This ketone is a fairly well-known chemical around the house.  If exposure to this chemical is limited, any health issues are likely to be averted.  However, measurable amounts of acetone have been found in brand new carpet, thus exposing you and your family to it for long periods everyday.  Its most commonly known usage is in nail polish remover.  Acetone is also present in: industrial and laboratory grade thinners as well as fuel additives for increased engine performance.  Acetone is extremely flammable!  If the concentration of acetone in your carpet is great enough, this can pose a potential fire hazard and even cause your home to burn more quickly if a fire should start.

      Acetone generally causes mild irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat when contact is excessive.  The most dangerous part of acetone is its immense fire hazard.  In temperatures as low as -4 °F, it only takes a 2.5% concentration of acetone in the air for a flash fire to start from as little as minor static discharge!

  • Formaldehyde-

      Otherwise known as methanal, formaldehyde is a very widely used chemical.  The most well-known usage is in the embalming process to stall the decomposition of deceased carcases.  There are also a host of other uses internationally.  There have even been cases where formaldehyde is found in new carpet.  Formaldehyde is quickly becoming known as a dangerous chemical to come in contact with.

      Exposure at concentrations as little as 0.1 ppm (parts per million), formaldehyde causes: headaches, burning of the throat, difficulty breathing, aggravated asthma symptoms.  Studies also suggest that exposure to formaldehyde causes reproductive problems in women including increased rate of miscarriages and menstrual complications.  Damage to pulmonary function has also been noted.  Ongoing studies are consistent in suggesting that direct contact with formaldehyde is detrimental to health and should be avoided. 

Old, Used Carpet Commonly Contains:

  • Bugs and Their larvae-

Dust Mites

      These tiny arachnids are the most common bugs found in human habitation.  They feed on flakes of dead skin which are left behind from people within the household.  Dust mites are one of the leading causes of asthma and allergic symptoms throughout the world.  Both their bodies and their fecal matter left behind can trigger these symptoms.  At a rate of up to 100 eggs laid every 5 weeks, dust mites can be a real pain to deal with, especially if you are an asthma or allergy sufferer. 

Fleas

      

      If you have a cat, dog, or other animal that goes back and forth between outside and the house, chances are you have at least at one time or another, dealt with fleas.  However, even if you don’t have any pets at all, there still may be fleas in your carpet.  There are over 2,000 different species of fleas – even fleas attracted specifically to humans.  Generally, fleas attracted toward one specific (host) species, will also bite other hosts as well. 

      Flea bites are generally just irritating and annoying.  However, there are circumstances when flea bites can be very serious, even life threatening.  Since fleas are parasites, they have a direct line to the bloodstream when they bite their host.  More serious illnesses associated with flea bites include: flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) secondary skin irritations, anemia, tapeworms, and stomach flu.  In addition, if the flea that bites its host is carrying a disease of its own, it can pass that disease on to its host.  The number of possibilities off illnesses that a flea can pass on are endless.  The most notable example of this was a documented case where an epidemic broke out when fleas were transmitting the bubonic plague from rodents to humans.      

Other Bugs and Larva

      There are a number of other bugs and their eggs that may infest your home and dwell in your carpet.  The South Sound area saw dozens of infestations of bed bugs in 2010 alone.  Entire apartment buildings had to be shut down for weeks in order for exterminators to secure them.  Carpet cleaning will not remedy an infestation, but it will help to prevent them.  Carpet is an ideal place for these creatures to live and thrive. 

  • Dirt and Sand –

      Dirt and sand pose a number of different threats to members of your home.  Bacteria and germs present can cause sicknesses in people with weak immune systems such as babies or elderly.  Also, dirt and sand act as a net for hair, bugs and eggs, dust, dander, and toxins to get caught in.  

  • Hair and Dander-

      Allergy and Asthma sufferers probably already know that hair and dander really set them off.  What they might not know is that the carpet in a home acts as a filter for the air.  When this “filter” gets full of hair, dander, and everything else we have listed so far, it stops collecting these things from floating freely throughout the air.  This not only creates a situation where the air quality is poor, it constantly exposes the allergens trapped in the carpet, to the sufferer.                         

      Needless to say, the carcinogens and allergens that may be lurking in your carpet, are not things that you or your loved ones should be breathing in on a daily basis.  What can you do?  Vacuum regularly.  Thoroughly dust your entire house at least once per week.  Also, have your carpet, area rugs, upholstery and mattresses cleaned on a regular basis. 

      Do not waste your time or money using rental carpet cleaning machines, such as the Rug Doctor.  They are not nearly as effective as professional hot water extraction methods, largely because they don’t use hot enough water.  Grossbusters Carpet Cleaning uses a hot water extraction system (known to some as “steam cleaning”) with water temperatures exceeding 220 degrees!  Extremely high-powered vacuums lift away all of the unwanted pollutants in your carpet so you can feel safe in your home. 

      For information on how often you should be vacuuming and having your textiles cleaned, please view the Cleaning Frequency Guidelines table on our FAQ page.  All of the information in the table is directly from the E.P.A.
