Wet Weather Carpet Survival Tips

In Texas, we have two good storm seasons and the last one is upon us. I am going to give you five of my best tips to help you get through the season with clean carpet.

  1. First and foremost, you should use entry rugs to give people a place to wipe their muddy feet. These do not have to be too fancy and can even be just an old towel in bad weather.
  2. If you can pull of this tip, you will be golden. Make people take their shoes off. Super hard to enforce but it is the best thing for your carpet. Try to get people to keep socks on though to keep skin oils off of the floor.
  3. If you have a mud accident, do not panic. Most mud will dry on the surface and can be vacuumed out easily. Let it dry overnight and the next day, pull out the vacuum. You will see that most of it simply disappears.
  4. Use a dehumidifier to get rid of humidity. It will keep musty smells at bay and make your carpet seem fresher. Hint, if you think you do not have a dehumidifier, you are wrong. Your home AC unit will remove a massive amount of moisture, just turn it down a notch.
  5. Call me when needed. I won’t melt and have no problem working in the rain.

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.
