May of 2015 marks our 20th year in business serving the St. Louis and St. Charles area. Precise Carpet Cleaning would like to thank all of our clients that have made this possible. Over the last 20 years we have seen many changes especially in carpet construction. The mid 1990’s had quite a bit of olefin berber carpet and now we see new carpets like smart strand. Some of the new carpets even offer lifetime warranties. [Read more…]
Precise Carpet Cleaning does provide certified carpet cleaning in St. Charles and St. Louis MO. We have always been known for our carpet cleaning services. We wanted to point out that we also clean upholstery. So if you are needing your sofa cleaned we can help. Our certified technicians use green cleaning and rinsing products when cleaning carpet and upholstery.
Using high quality cleaning and rinsing products are very important when cleaning carpet and upholstery. Because in some cases if a inferior product is used there can be a sticky residue left. Which will cause the carpet or upholstery to re-soil quickly. This is a very important part of the cleaning process to ensure the carpet and upholstery stays as clean as possible. It is much easier to make the carpet look clean. The much harder part of professional carpet cleaning is to keep it clean for a long time by using the best process and products available.

At Precise Carpet Cleaning we provide Upholstery Cleaning St. Louis. Most upholstery we see now is microfiber, but we also see leather and some dry clean upholstery. We do clean it all. We do want to point out to our St. Louis customers that some upholstery salespeople may not know the difference between water cleanable and dry clean only upholstery. So it is a good idea to check it out before buying.
About dry clean upholstery fabric.
We highly recommend to stay away from dry clean upholstery unless you absolutely love the pattern it has and are only going to use it a very little. Dry clean only means that it will be damages if any water touches the fabric. It can not be cleaned the way we clean most other upholstery.
Upholstery cleaning for dry clean fabric is performed by hand using a mild solvent bases product. We do not recommend these fabrics. You can check the cleaning instructions prior to buying and make sure they state W for water. So if the instructions state S for solvent, at least know it is a delicate fabric. [Read more…]
Even as experienced carpet cleaners it can be difficult to tell just how dirty a carpet really is at a glance. If you are wanting to get an idea of when to clean your carpet.
One way you can see just how dirty your carpet is would be to move a piece of furniture from its original spot. Then look at the carpet under where the furniture was. Most of the time you can see a distinct difference between the carpet under your furniture. It should be much dirtier in the carpet where you walk. Precise Carpet Cleaners in St. Charles Mo. can help if you need any cleaning done.
How often should I clean carpet?

Its that time of year again when our kids are going back to school for another year. Carpet cleaning may be top on your list. This is a great time to get cleaned up from all the traffic over the summer. We do get the carpet dry in about 2 to 5 hours. Even though this is a quick dry time it can be difficult to clean your carpet when your children are home all day during the summer. So this could be a very good time to get your carpet cleaned. Since you may have the whole day with no body needing to walk over your freshly cleaned carpet.
In St. Charles Mo. one of our busiest times for cleaning carpet is when the kids go back to school. Having your carpets cleaned on a regular basis will help improve your indoor air quality.

Its summer again and as we all know we are looking at high temperatures and high humidity. Because of these two reasons some customers tend to wait till the weather cools and the humidity is lower to do their carpet cleaning. We can help with this. First we use a very large truck-mounted steam cleaning system. So we have the power to extract all the excess water during cleaning leaving only a slight amount of moisture behind. Because of this we easily dry your carpet even in the hot humid St. Louis summers.
Running your Hvac can help your carpet dry quicker
Another thing that helps quite a bit is running your air conditioner before, during, and after the cleaning. The air conditioner acts as a dehumidifier and will actually pull moisture from the air while running. The drier the air is in a house or business the quicker the carpet will dry after being cleaned.

There is plenty of reasons to get your carpet cleaned in St. Louis. Spring Carpet Cleaning is very common. Some people may wait till an event like a graduation or maybe Thanksgiving. And some people may wait till the carpet looks dirty or till there pet makes a mess. But it is best to clean on a regular basis.
Reasons to clean your carpet.
The best reason to clean your carpet is for health reasons. Carpet acts as a filter and holds on to allergens till they are properly cleaned out. I mention properly since some carpet cleaning processes are not designed to help with the allergies. In the St. Charles and St. Louis Mo. area we have quite a bit of pollen. In the spring this can be worse and this year was no different. [Read more…]
Precise Carpet Cleaning provides ceramic tile cleaning in the St. Charles and St. Louis Mo. area. Some tile may never need to be professionally cleaned. But most of the tile we do see needs to be cleaned on an annual basis. If a ceramic or porcelain tile floor is professionally cleaned every year it will most likely look like new for the life of the tile.
Sealing grout after cleaning.
When we clean ceramic tile and grout we also include sealing the grout. Because of this your grout will stay clean as long as possible. We often see tile and grout that has never had the grout sealed, this causes the grout to get dirty very quick and makes it much more difficult to clean. [Read more…]
Precise Carpet Cleaning services the Creve Coeur Mo. area. While cleaning carpet for a customer we ran across a carpet that didn’t look to be that soiled till we started the cleaning process.
Sometimes it is deceiving how dirty a carpet is when it is evenly soiled across the whole carpet. Most carpet will have traffic patterns that are soiled and other areas that aren’t that dirty at all. This makes it easy to see how dirty the carpet really is. Since you can see areas in the same room that have the true color still. This can cause problems since its hard to see just how dirty the carpet really is. The dirtier the carpet is, the more damage is being done to the fibers since abrasive soil is the main reason we end up having to replace carpets.
Soil is very damaging to the fibers of carpet. It will cause the fibers to be damaged which makes the carpet not reflect as much light. Soil will also darken the fiber, and cause the fiber to lay down more instead of standing up. These are the biggest complaints we see. All these [Read more…]
