Clean Your Car Upholstery

auto carpet cleanerWhen it comes to automotive carpet cleaning, steam cleaning is not the best fit. For residential carpet cleaning, there is nothing better. It removes the most soil and is safest for carpet. This is why major carpet manufacturers recommend this method. Auto carpet is a different animal however. It is harder to dry and because most of it is Olefin, the water tends to run down the fiber and to the backing of the carpet. And, what is behind that carpet backing? Hard to dry insulation and electrical wiring, not to mention sheet metal that could rust.

The best method to clean auto upholstery may not be the most effective but it is safe. We like foam cleaning for auto upholstery. You may have to repeat the cleaning several times to remove all of the soil in your vehicle but it is unlikely to over-wet your carpet.

The cleaning process with foam is very easy. You simply spray it on the carpet and agitate it with a brush. You can then either wait for it to dry and vacuum it up or you can wipe it with a towel to remove heavier amounts of soil.

If you want to give foam cleaning a try on your vehicle, you can find cans of the cleaner like the one pictured above at most auto repair stores.

We have used James for the past three years. He is always on time, professional, and through. We have recommended him to multiple people and will continue to use him in the future.

James just left my house and my carpets look like new! I thought that my carpets were beyond saving. Yesterday I even had my house quoted for new carpet. I called James from sticker shock at the new carpet price. I figured that I would "try" to clean my carpets. I have a $400 home steam cleaner and it wasn't even putting a dent in the spots. My carpets are 8 years old and we have a ton of preschoolers in the house every day along with two dogs. I chose Carlson Carpets because he uses natual products and has a flat fee. I hate it when companies bait me with a good price and then try to tack on a bunch of fees for this spot here and that spot there. It took James a little over an hour and they look new. I feel like he just saved me thousands! Thanks James!

Mr. Carlson has cleaned my carpets 4 times now. When he leaves they look like new. He is the owner and the lead technician. He is very efficient, pleasant and the price is more than reasonable. I would recommend this company to anyone!! Also, Mr. Carlson is the type of person you could go outside to get your mail or to talk to a neighbor and not have to worry about a thing being missing when you return - unlike so many companies, today. Top notch service - top notch results! Also, I wanted to add: I have pets who have accidents and teenage kids in and out of the house. No problem is too big for Carlson!

Very good experience. I scheduled my appointment on their website, got a confirmation, and then everything went as the online system said. The company emailed me the day before to confirm again, and called the day of to give me a 30-minute heads-up. The owner did my job himself and he was very professional.

James called on his way to let me know when he would be there and he arrived promptly. He was very professional and finished the work quickly and efficiently. I called at 8pm and left a message with a question and he called me back within 5 minutes.

I had a great experience using them last week. James called in advance and showed up right on time. As this was my first carpet cleaning, James was patient and accommodating to my requests.
