Here’s one investment worth protecting, Carpets

Here’s a slant, I’d like to discuss the importance of carpet cleaning and upholstery for homes and offices. For a lot of people, this is literally a responsibility to maintain their home. Especially if they’re renting their home or office. To knock some sense into those who try to avoid this responsibility of keeping their carpet clean, I’ll go over some key points that I personally believe should be good enough information to stop this avoidance cycle.


First, let me start of by saying that carpet, let alone any type of flooring, is a big investment. With any type of investment whether for your home or your financial future, it’s important to remember to care for these things so we can maximize the benifits they were meant to provide…

Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning is the process of shampooing, and deeply cleaning any carpet to the point where it looks restored. This means that if your carpet has stains on it, what we’ll do is a deep clean that is so thorough, all stains will be gone! We can also deeply clean upholstery on certain types of furniture as well. The power behind cleaning both your carpet and upholstery will leave your friends and family in awe the next time they come over to your house. Usually with a brand new carpet, what ends up happening is the owner of the home will try to tell everyone walking in to take off their shoes, in order to avoid dirtying up the carpet. This never fails to come to an end. Almost everyone eventually gives is, and let’s people start walking with their shoes on in the home.

This allows for the staining of the carpet, and will eventually have to be cleaned. Believe it or not, the bottom of peoples’ shoes are one of the dirtiest places on earth! So this would call for a deep cleaning. The cleaning process for this type of work is as thorough as it gets in the carpet cleaning industry. We have our shampooing machine, which has brushes on it and squirts hot water into the carpet in order to get all the way in. The hot water diffuses all the stains out and brings all the dirt and grime to the top of the carpet. Then, it is sucked back into our tank which is essentially a dirty water reservoir. Then, we add more hot water mixed with shampoo and a conditioning agent. This conditioning agent leaves your carpet nice and fluffy for a very long time.

Keeping A Clean Workplace

In a workplace this is absolutely necessary to keep the carpet clean. You wouldn’t want a client or customer to walk in and see how dirty the carpet is. This wouldn’t make you look too professional. On top of that, if someone wears white shoes, they will end up blackening the bottom of the shoes. This will end up making your entire office look dirty, and therefor unattractive. The key to having a successful business is to make your customers happy and to make yourself very appealing. If your floors are dirty, or even stained in an area, you’re putting your company’s future at risk!

The Investment Of Keeping It Clean

The cost investment for this type of work can be between $200 – $1000 depending on the size of the carpet. We actually measure each space and add up all the square feet in order to know what to charge. This makes it very fair to each one of our customers. Investing in this service now will save you in the long run. The cost of replacing an entire carpet is far greater than the cost of cleaning one. Although carpeting is something we do, we wouldn’t recommend it unless it absolutely has to be done, or if the home/business owner requests for this to begin with.

On top of our cleaning service, we include a maintenance fee to make sure your carpet remains fresh at all times. Our maintenance packages are the key to always having a fresh and clean looking home or office. We typically have all of our office clients on a maintenance package. This package includes us coming in twice a month to clean the dirt that accumulates on the carpet. Dirt generally accumulates from dirty shoes, chairs, pets, etc. Included in the package, we are on call 24 hours a day in case anything major spills on the carpet and leaves stains. Leaving a stain for a longer period of time is bad for the carpet and will decrease the longevity of it.

So if you have a stain currently, or when you get one, make sure you get a deep clean. Just cleaning the surface may trick you into believing the job was done right. Make sure you hire the right people. Protect your investment by taking care of it with proper care and maintenance by a trusted carpet cleaning company, such as, King Kleen – Kingston Carpet Cleaning Division
