More Satisfied Clients!

I had my carpets cleaned last week and I could not have been more pleased with the results. This was my second time using Able Carpet Card and it will not be the last. Especially with two large house dogs and a hunter/fisherman for a husband. -Marion

I called Able Carpet Care and wanted to write down my feedback / experience with the local carpet cleaning company. He was able to get to me on the same day I called which was perfectly what I needed. I was surprised at how fast and efficient he was at getting the task done on our moderately large home. Friendly, efficient, and did great work on cleaning my carpet. Which says a lot when we have two Black Lab’s, four cat’s, and 2 children. Let me just say, I desperately needed a good carpet cleaning! Thank you Able Carpet Care. – Kisha Majors

They do excellent work! I would recommend them to anyone needing their carpet cleaned. -Mike Dean

Holiday Carpet Cleaning

It’s that time of year again!

Every year we experience the mad dash to get ready for holiday parties and get-togethers. We’re busy dusting, baking, cooking, shopping and planning our big events. That is when we look at our floors and realize we need to spruce up before company and family comes over.

Dun dun dunnn! Able Carpet to the rescue!

All super hero humor aside, we want all of clients to know we are here to help. We truly understand how important the holidays are, and how having our homes or business in tip-top shape is a priority for many of us. If you’d like to schedule a carpet cleaning or tile cleaning appointment today please call us at 208-446-3223. We get asked many questions during the holidays so we wanted to tell you 4 great things.

4 great things to know:

Help A Friend – Do you know someone(family, friend, co-worker) that would like their carpet, upholstery or tile cleaned? You can help them by participating in our referral program(<—click here).

Sanitizing – Our carpet cleaning equipment heats our cleaning solution 200+ °, helping us remove oily soils, and every day dirt we bring into our homes each day. If you’re like many families with children opening gifts, it will probably have a lot to do with setting on the floor, or crawling under a tree to retrieve the gifts. If you’re going to be entertaining friends and family there is a big chance there will be little ones crawling on the floor. Need we say more?

Odor Removal – Many of us have furry loved ones(some may refer to them as “our hairy 4-legged children”) and they’re not always kind to our flooring or our furniture. Their oily fur leaves dark spots in their favorite lounging area, or they may even have little accidents from time to time. No worries! We have wonderful products and procedures to getting your carpet smelling fresh and clean. You may not have any furry children but still want to have your carpet and furniture smelling nice and fresh for company, and we can certainly take care of that for you too.

Protection – Having your carpet, upholstery or tile cleaned before the holiday not only allow us to freshen them up, but afterward we can apply a protector to them as well. Every year it always happens – our family & friends or even ourselves have an ‘oops’ moment. A drink is spilled, or plate is dropped, and now the panic sets in. Having a protector applied will help you remove the spot or spill easier. We always offer free spoting removal tips, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for these.

Of course if you’d like to wait until the holidays are over to freshen up your home we understand that too. Just remember – When you need clean, we are Able!

Did you know we clean upholstery?

Yes that’s right, we clean upholstery! In fact we bought a new piece of equipment specifically for upholstery cleaning.

Take a look here:

Upholstery can come in a wide range of textures, colors, and fiber content, yes not all upholstery is the same. We go through a series of steps in order to clean your furniture safely and effectively.

First we will test the fabric to see what fiber content its made of to determine what safe cleaning solution(s) we will use to clean it. Not all upholstery is created equal, and we want to be sure we get the best results possible. When needed we will gently agitate the cleaning solution to help break up the oils and soil that has attached to the fabric.

Finally we rinse the soils suspended in the cleaning solution(s) leaving the fabric soft. Leaving the fabric soft ensures that there are no soil attracting residues so that your furniture will stay cleaner longer.

The great feature of this machine is everything runs inside the home so it is perfect for cleaning upholstery during the winter time without having to have the door cracked to allow our hoses in. Give us a call to schedule your upholstery/furniture cleaning today. We’ll even clean your husbands favorite chair!

Did you see our announcement below? Our very own technician Nathan just completed his Carpet Cleaning Technician class and certification course from the IICRC last month. Read about it here.

Yes, we can clean your upholstery at the same time of your nampa carpet cleaning appointment. Just let us know when you call us 208-466-3223

Tile Maintenance & Cleaning

We’re often asked how to maintain tile and grout or stone floors. Our first big answer is to SAY NO TO MOP AND GLO!

Say no to mop and glo

The Do Not’s

Mop and glo and similar products will leave a residue on your tile floors. Over time the residue will actually attract soil causing the floor to get dirtier faster. The soil embedded in the residue can actually stain the grout, and dwell into the pores making it very difficult to remove, or cause permanent damage. This can be true for any product that has a lot of “soap” in it. The issue is once the soap dries to the floor the residue it leaves is hard to remove, along with the soil. What happens is most people will mix their cleaning product stronger to get the results they desire. Mixing the product stronger will mean more residue and the problem compounds itself.

The Do’s

As with carpet cleaning, the first step you want to do is remove as much dry soil as possible.( See our blog post on how important this is, here ) You can use a dust mop, broom, or your vacuum cleaner. The best cleaner for ceramic or natural tile is a neutral cleaner. The neutral cleaner will ensure no harmful residue will be left of on the floor, and it will not damage natural tile/stone. Please feel free to ask us for recommendations of neutral cleaning products for your floor(s).

Having your tile and grout cleaned professionally every 12-18 months will maintain its like-new appearance. We also have the ability to seal your tile and grout to keep your floor cleaner longer. We can perform your tile and grout cleaning at the same time as your carpet cleaning appointment. All we need is the approximate square foot of the tile area(s) you’re wanting to have cleaned so that we can give an estimate over the phone, and schedule the proper amount of time to perform the work thoroughly and correctly.

Feel free to check out our video and photo galleries to see real photos and videos of OUR WORK!

We can also clean your counter tops, bathroom showers, and wall tile.!

The importance of vacumming….AGAIN!

Vacuuming is the single most important thing you can do to maintain your carpet. Well all get busy, and we all neglect it from time to time. We recently had a cleaning appointment where we pre-vacuumed the carpet prior to cleaning, and this is what we found…

As you can see there was a lot of dry soil particulate. This dry soil damages the carpet over time and causes it to prematurely wear out. Soil and dirt have thousands of sharp edges that cut away the carpet fiber over time. We cannot stress enough how important vacuuming is to extend the life of your carpet in between professional carpet cleaning.

Vacuuming Checklist

In order for your vacuuming to be efficient there are a few things you will want to do…

  • Check Filters: If your vacuum has any filters you will want to clean them after every use, or at least regularly. This will ensure you have proper suction so the dry soil can be removed from the carpet.
  • Check Hoses: Check any hoses your vacuum may have for debris/lint/hair. This is simple to do – you can detach the hose and take it outside and flush water from your garden hose through it to remove any clogs. A metal coat hanger also helps remove any stuck debris as well.
  • Check Vacuum inlet: Underneath the vacuum near the beater bar there is a vacuum inlet port that carries the soil to the bag, or dirt cup. It tends to get clogged if larger debris is swept up, and a results loss in suction/vacuum occurs.

These three things are the most common issues with vacuums that we see. The vacuum doesn’t work properly, and many people go and buy new when it simply could just be a maintenance issue.

  • Check and Clean the beater bar: The beater bar becomes ridden with hair and lint over time. It is good to clean it periodically so that it brush off the soil from the carpet.
  • Check the power cord: For safety reasons you want to make sure there are no exposed wires or damage to the power cord. There are many cases in US every year where frayed and damage power cords cause fires. If you notice damage you will want to have it repaired, or buy a new vacuum.

As we mentioned before in a previous blog post the type of vacuum isn’t as important as to actually doing it regularly. A good rule of thumb is to vacuum common living areas 2-4 times a week depending on use, and amount of people living in your home. Living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms, hallways, and bedroom entry ways are what we consider to be common living areas. Studies have proven that regular vacuuming of your carpet will extend the life of it by 30-60%. The normal life expectancy of carpet we’ve experienced is 6-8 years, but we have clients with carpet 12-15 years old, and it is still in good or great condition.

Finally

Remember to have you carpet cleaned every 12-18 months as the manufacturer recommends. Some of clients require carpet cleaning every 6 months because of the amount of use. You can view videos of our work by clicking here. We also have some great before and after photos in our photo gallery.

Restaurant Carpet Cleaning Boise

We offer carpet cleaning in Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, and Meridian.

We not only clean residential carpet, but clean commercial carpet too! We have 20+ years of experience in the carpet cleaning industry.

Here is an example of a restaurant we recently cleaned.

 

As you can see carpet was heavily soiled which is normal for a restaurant environment. Restaurants should be maintained every 1-3 months depending on amount of traffic.

Regular maintenance of your restaurant or business carpet has many benefits:

  • Saves on the cost of replacement – It has been proven that having your carpet cleaned regularly can extend the life of your carpet by 50%.
  • Maintaining a professional appearance – When patrons enter your business they will notice the cleanliness of it, and having your carpet regularly maintained will ensure you’re projecting the image of your business that you want.
  • Less sick days – The carpet in your business or restaurant acts as a natural filter capture all of the dust, pollen, allergens, oil, grease and bacteria. Carpet cleaning regularly removes theses things from the carpet, and brings it back to a sanitary level. Our cleaning system produces water for hot water extraction (‘steam cleaning’) in excess of 200 degrees. The high temperature will NOT damage the carpet but aids in remove greasy oils, soil particulate, and sanitizing.

 

Able Carpet Care provides residential & commercial carpet cleaning in boise, Nampa, Caldwell, and Meridian.

Some of Our Reviews!

We wanted to share a few testimonials from some of our amazing customers! We always appreciate a referral from friends or family, and the support of our local business!

 

Robin Says:

We have used John with Able Carpet Care for many years. We have rental properties and we get some really dirty carpets. John seems to always get them clean and if he doesn’t think he can get them clean he will tell us instead of wasting his time and ours and charging us for it. He has always been very dependable and provides great service.

We had Able Carpet Care clean our carpets recently, and they did a great job. They were able to accommodate our schedule so our office didn’t miss a beat. They were very thorough. I would strongly recommend them.

Fabric Protection

Is Fabric Protection Necessary? You benefit by having us apply our carpet & fabric protection any time we clean your carpets, rugs, and furniture. Our protector makes it more difficult for spills, spots, and stains to PENETRATE to the interior of the fibers (where they cause permanent color change). The protector keeps messes on the surface where they can be more easily cleaned. Some fabrics have protector applied during the manufacturing process.

However, the protection degrades over time with use and cleaning. It must be refreshed from time to time. We don’t just clean carpets. Able Carpet Care’s carpet cleaning technicians are also experts in cleaning upholstery. We know the right cleaning methods for a particular fiber or fabric. Our steam-powered equipment will clean almost any sofa, love seat, chair or other piece of upholstered furniture.

Your home contains many pieces of furniture created from many different fibers, each with different characteristics. Cleaning these fibers properly takes experience and the correct cleaning methods. No one method cleans all upholstery fibers. So that expensive living room set, dining room chair cushion, or office ensemble you bought years ago doesn’t need to be replaced. Able Carpet Care will make it look like new again. So when you call us to have your carpets cleaned, don’t ignore your furniture. We can do both at the same time.

Use our website inquiry and we will protect one room you have cleaned for FREE!!
