Standard carpet cleaning formulas contain a combination of harsh chemical solvents and detergents. After cleaning, harmful residues remain in your carpet and circulate throughout the air. This “toxic soup”affects the health of every member of your family. Sensitive individuals may react with skin rashes, respiratory problems, attention-deficit disorder and hyperactivity (children), constant fatigue, headaches, or depression. Prolonged exposure can lead to more serious disease. Choosing green also helps to protect our outdoor environment. Greenway's products are 100% plant based, biodegradable, phosphate-free, VOC compliant, and green seal certified - plus cleaning is done without truck mounted gas guzzling machines.
In addition to cleaning spots and spills from your carpet, our system excels in removing loose, dry dirt that settles near carpet backing. This dirt can contain skin cells, bacteria and viruses, chemicals, pet dander, dust mites, heavy metals like arsenic and lead, mold, pollen, pesticides, carpet beetles and other bugs. We also vacuum under beds and furniture if possible, as well as detailing corners and baseboards.
There is no steam in steam cleaning - it is simply hot water extraction. This method flushes gallons of hot water and detergent through your carpet, which cannot be completely removed. In addition to the inconvenience of waiting for your carpets to dry, there can be other problems. Mold, mildew and bacteria begin to grow in just 4 hours and muddy debris can be left in the carpet backing. The bonnet system of carpet cleaning has its own set of limitations as well. Carpet warranties may even be voided if you clean with systems that can cause carpet shrinkage, rippling, fraying of fibers, and color fading or bleeding. Damage can also occur on wood floors underneath. In addition, if furniture is improperly protected, rust and varnish stains are inevitable. By choosing dry, you save water, protect your floors, and can enjoy your clean carpet immediately.
You really do get what you pay for with carpet cleaning. Other methods may be quicker and cheaper, but how do your carpets look after a few weeks? With Greenway's quality service, spots won't reappear and your carpet will stay cleaner - up to 5 times longer. Before hiring a carpet cleaner, ask the following questions:
Our residential rates for cleaning carpets are by area (room, hallway, closet, etc.) and commercial rates are by the sq. ft. The cost for rugs, upholstered furniture, tile and grout is determined by size. We are able to give a fairly accurate telephone estimate, which is confirmed once we are in your home or business and can see the areas to be cleaned. We will not begin the job until you have approved our estimate.
We move light furniture, including most sofas, love seats, and chairs at no additional charge. We can usually clean under beds and tables, so those can stay in place. Heavier furniture can be moved for a small additional charge. We do not move china cabinets, large dining tables, pianos, dressers, entertainment centers, bookcases, computers, and delicate or fragile items.
Greenway uses products that are outstanding for most pet urine, odors, vomit, and other accidents. The longer the stain and odor have been there, the more difficult and expensive it will be to remove. For best results, clean when you first notice the accident. Following are tips on how to best accomplish this:
The Environmental Protection Agency has identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five urgent environmental risks to the public. They recommend a schedule of regular carpet cleaning to reduce and control allergens and toxins in your indoor environment. For a healthy home and to prolong the life of your carpets, have them cleaned with a dry, non-detergent system every six months. This is especially important if you have small children, pets, or family members with allergies.
You may be surprised to learn that a study in Germany found carpeting to be the healthier alternative. Carpet acts as a giant air filter, trapping airborne contaminants and pollutants. If you did not have carpet, these would be circulating in the air of your home. If your carpet cannot be restored through cleaning and needs to be replaced, be sure to investigate non-toxic flooring.
