Here at J. Matthis Carpet Care Plus, we know that area rugs are usually more delicate than wall to wall carpeting. So we take the proper precautions to insure that your rugs are gently cared for, while being properly cleaned and maintained. We use the carpet cleaning method called hot water extraction. Which is basically how it sounds, we use very hot water along with powerful water pressure and suction. We concentrate on high traffic areas accordingly by applying our powerful yet gentle pre-spray to the carpet 5-10 minutes before we start our cleaning. This allows the pre-spray the proper amount of dwell time, to make the cleaning process easier, and less stressful on the carpet fibers. This will preserve the condition of your rugs for a long time.
