Prolonging the Life of Your Carpets and Other Valuable Assets

Carpet Cleaning

Regular carpet cleaning not only ensures they always look their best, it prolongs their useful life by preventing accumulated damage from dirt working its way into the carpet.

  • LOW MOISTURE CARPET CLEANING = ENCAPSULATION
  • HIGH MOISTURE CARPET CLEANING= HOT WATER EXTRACTION
  • ONE TIME CARPET CLEANING= ONE TIME ONLY
  • MAINTENANCE PROGRAM= CONTRACTS/ MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, SEMI ANNUAL, ANNUAL
  • UPHOLSTERY CLEANING= ALL TEXTILES/ CHAIRS, FURNITURE, CUBICAL PANELS, ETC

In the early 70’s, our Houston office initiated the concept of carpet maintenance programs to commercial clients.  (Until that time, carpets were cleaned on an “as needed” basis.)

IMS stopped using perkchlorethylene and trichlorethylene years before they were banned by the government as cancer causing agents. We were one of the first in our area to be certified in cleaning methods which are now considered industry standards.

IICRC Approved Methods of Cleaning

*Absorbent Compound:

This method uses a dry granular absorbent media impregnated with solvent and detergent.

*Shampoo:

Shampoo suspends soils when agitated resulting in soil and detergent removal.

*Dry Foam:

Cylindrical brush which scrubs and picks up the foam generated by the machine in one pass.

*Rotary Shampoo Extraction:

Similar to shampoo, except a wet vacuum attached extracts the detergent and suspended soil. 

*Hot Water Extraction:

This is based on injection of a jet of hot water containing detergent into carpet and extracting by vacuum system.

*Absorbent Pad (Spin/Bonnet)

Pre-spray a detergent over the carpet and follow this process by using an adsorption pad or bonnet attached to a floor machine and buff.
