Before & After: Cleaning Pics of the Week

Happy Wednesday, and welcome to another edition of “Before & After: Cleaning Pics of the Week.”

This week’s Before & After photos were sent in by Warren Wallace of Magic Carpet Pride, an IICRC-certified carpet cleaning and water restoration company servicing the Chicagoland area.

In addition to their carpet cleaning and restoration services, Magic Carpet Pride also offers hard surfaces cleaning, green cleaning, pet odor removal and more.

The below photo displays a quintessential carpet cleaning emergency–red wine on light carpet. Warren writes:

I had a customer call on Saturday night. They had had a full bottle of very good wine break and spill all over their white carpet. I could tell they were stressed out big time.

 I told them not to worry–that I would take care of it on Monday morning. We got there in the morning and went to work. BTW, the house was going on the market in five days. The spot was dry at this point.

Can Warren’s team save this carpet, or will the home-owners have to delay putting their house on the market?

wine after
An incredible save! How did they do it? Warren writes:

I took my DDT 12 deodorizer and Judson Cleaner and poured it into the carpet. I used about one gallon and let it sit for 10 minutes. We then used our small water claw and sucked it up.

 I then used 30 volume and ammonia after 40 minutes and 4 applications. The stain was still visible, so I went at it with Stain Magic and my steam iron. This took care of it. In total, we spent one and a half hours getting this spot out. It took a lot of patience, but the client was thrilled and gave us a big tip. We even made Angie’s List.

Awesome work.

    Fantastic job you guys. Have you ever boosted the ammonia with Hydrogen Peroxide? Check it out my video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9LFcZcbBec where I demostrate this mixture.

    Nice pictures. Benefit of carpet cleaning is the potential improvement to your family’s health. Scheduling a carpet cleaning can help to reduce the severity of these allergies
