Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning
The most difficult surface in a structure from which to eliminate odors and stains is your carpet. Hardwood and/or laminate floors are easy to clean; but carpet poses the greatest difficulty in doing so because of its design. Unlike smooth surfaces, it requires special equipment and sometimes strong chemicals to lift out the odors, germs, and dirt. Often, these must be operated or supervised by a technician with proper training and experience. Several things can cause these negatives to build up in your carpet:
- Pet urine/feces
- Unwashed bodies
- Outdoor particles tracked in on shoes/feet
- Liquid spills
- Human waste
When your carpet seems to have lost its freshness; or when you know that it is causing discomfort or health issues, call SERVPRO of Mankato/Owatonna where cleanliness is as important to us as it is to you.

Preventative MaintenanceCarpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.
IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.
