Professional Wall to Wall Carpet Cleaning in Manhattan
Cleaning wall to wall carpet entails more than just vacuuming. Heavily soiled carpets require shampooing to restore their original appearance. Professional deep cleaning keeps carpet colors vibrant and reduces dirt particles and allergens that are generally not removed by ordinary vacuuming.
No matter how diligently NYC or tristate homeowners clean their wall to wall carpets, eventually a professional rug cleaning in NYC, or elsewhere in the tri-state area will be necessary. Consider this comparison: Home carpet vacuuming is to professional carpet cleaning, what fast food is to fine di ning. We recommend that at least once each year your wall to wall carpet receive a deep cleaning that only professionals can provide with their specialized equipment. Our trained technicians know what has to be done to do the job correctly.

Our specialized cleaning and drying systems have been tested to protect families and furnishings. Specialized vacuums, hoses, and wands are used. Although the high-quality cleaning solutions we use are effective on dirt, they do not harm children or pets. Our effective stain removal methods and equipment will not only clean and sanitize, but also make carpets look better.
FACT: Wool is a popular carpet fiber because of its durability and natural resiliency. Until the 1950s when synthetic fibers were introduced, it dominated the carpet industry. Wool hides soil and is naturally fire-retardant. But because it hides dirt so well, odors can be retained and one’s air quality in the room along with the life of the carpet will be impacted. Some stain removal can be challenging with wool carpets particularly if the stain has seeped past the natural oils inherent in the wool. We believe that set in stains should be removed by professionals such as ourselves.
The Cleaning Process
Carpet Cleaning NYC uses a process that cleans deep fibers, rinses out cleaning products and soil, and leaves the carpet clean bright and fresh. We recommend a carpet protector, such a Scotch Guard, be applied to keep the carpet cleaner for a longer time particularly if there are animals in the house, or the rug is located in a heavily trafficked arrea.
Before starting the cleaning process, our technicians will use cover guards under the rugs to protect woodwork. All average size furniture is removed from the carpet area. The technician will look for and remove from the rug anything such as long pieces of string, coins, or nails that could cause damage to the professional vacuum. The carpet is then thoroughly vacuumed before any cleaning solutions are added to the process.
Once the appropriate cleaning method for the carpet fibers (synthetic versus natural, like wool, cotton, silk) is selected, an out-of-the-way area on the rug is tested to ensure the carpet’s fibers will not react badly with the cleaning solutions. A conditioning cleaner is applied. Note that our hot water extraction method does not harm wool fibers. We consider it the most effective method of removing fiber-eating, gritty, greasy soil from carpets. If necessary, expert hand clean-spotting is done. No bleach is not used since it can dissolve carpet fibers.
Nearly all commercial carpet is nylon. Sometimes carpets will have a two-fiber blend. Knowing what type of fiber you are dealing with is critical in understanding its cleanability. Otherwise you could damage the rug’s fiber, color, or alter its texture.
Finally a speed drying process dries the rug. Grooming to add luster to the carpet is carried out. Some clients request an antimicrobial/deodorizing treatment, in addition to the regular cleaning to eliminate unwanted odors. Perimeter baseboards are dusted. We leave your home clean and tidy.
Steam cleaning every year by a professional carpet cleaner with the proper skill and knowledge is the best way to keep wool and conventional synthetic fiber wall to wall rugs looking their best.

Some Thoughts and Information About Rug Cleaning & Restoring Carpets
A quality vacuum cleaner should keep your carpets in a releatively good state if you clean on a regular basis. However, when it comes to deep cleaning area rugs or wall to walll carpet, a professional is a better choice than trying to do it yourself. Rugs are constructed from different fibers. The most common synthetic fibers are nylon, polyester, Olefin and acrylic which are made from polyacrylonitrile. The most common natural fibers are wool, silk, cotton, rayon (regenerated cellulose derived from cotton fiber or wood pulp), sisal & jute. If you don’t know the type of fiber you are dealing with, and have no idea how to clean it, you are more likely to cause damage to the rug. Please do not attempt to clean antique or other hand made rugs. My Home Carpet & Upholstery Care personnel are knowledgable and experienced in cleaning and fixing any rug issue . Our experts know the best methods to remove pets’ accidents, chocolate, wine, coffee, food, or blood stains from rugs. We have many stories of people who made a stain worse by their inept attempts to clean it themselves.
Know Your Carpet Fiber by Testing
The following suggestion may seem a little unorthodox, but the “burn test” is an easy way to test unknown carpet fibers. Remove a bit of carpet fiber from an inconspicuous spot such as a corner, or another low-traffic area.
Use a tweezer, to carefully extract a single strand. Move to a safe location that will avoid causing an accident when you lite the fiber with the the flame from butane lighter or match.
Pay close attention to the odor, appearance, and action of the strand. Synthetics such as olefin, polyester, and nylon will arch away from the flame. Natural fibers such as wool do not move away from the fire.
If you are still uncertain whether the fiber is natural or synthetic, try to crush it between your fingers. There is little or no residue left from synthetic fibers. A noticeable residue is left behind when natural fibers burn.
Further Fiber Determination
There is a specific burn quality that helps identify the type of fiber. It should be stressed again, the importance of carefully examining the fiber as it burns.
Nylon burns orange at the tip and blue at the base. There is no smoke until the flame is extinguished. The flame sputters out. It emits celery- or wax-like smell when it burns. It leaves behind a brown or gray bead that is round and hard.
Characteristics: Nylon is stain resistant, but the wrong chemicals can void its natural resistance to stains. Nylon also stains more easily than other synthetic fibers.
Suggestions: Use a fabric protector or have the carpet professionally cleaned.
Polyester carpet fibers produce an orange flame and black smoke. The strand sputters and drips. The odor given off is sweet. The bead left behind is firm and shiny.
Olefin, like nylon, burns orange at the tip and blue at the base with no smoke. However there are distinguishing differences between olefin and nylon.
Olefin flames burn evenly, quickly, and do not sputter. The smell emitted is tar-like, similar to asphalt. The hard, round bead left behind is light tan or brown. Olefin is also lighter than water. To determine if a rug’s fiber is olefin, put the fiber in a glass of water and see if it floats
Characteristics: Olefin (polypropylene) is valued in the carpeting industry for its wool-like appearance. But it is not as resilient as real wool, since it does not have the same ability to “bounce back” after being compressed by foot traffic. Olefin is highly stain-resistant but not very soil-resistant. Olefin is hydrophobic – it does not absorb liquid. But olefin is oleophilic – it attracts oils. Olefin is susceptible to heat and will melt in the presence of high heat.
Suggestions: Cleaning Olefin rugs can be tricky because of its hydrophobic and oleophilic properties. Professional rug cleaners know how to deal with the cleaning issues related to Olefin properties.
Wool carpet fibers sputter; have an orange flame with very little if any smoke. The odor smells like singed hair. Black ash that will crumble when touched is left behind.
Characteristics:Strong chemicals and wool are not a good combination. Wool dissolves in chlorine bleach. Removing penetrating stains is difficult.
Suggestions: Use a fabric protector after having a profeffional cleaning. A professional carpet cleaner knows the right products to use on wool.
Pet Marks / Pet Odors and other Pet Issues
Dog and cat urine, when not handled correctly, can certainly devastate rug fibers. Most pet owners have had to deal with their animal’s pee or vomit on their carpet(s). We suggest that you immediately immerse the area with water, soaking it up with paper towels or clean rags. You will find lots of advice online regarding the proper way to clean up a pet’s accident. If the accident occurs on expensive oriental rugs, we highly recommend calling us so that the cleaning job can be done correctly with no damage to the carpet. We base our carpet pet odor elimination process on advanced technology and the latest developments in the field. We use quality compounds, and your carpet will smell fresh when we are done with it. Whenever a carpet emits a pet odor, there are likely pets stains on it as well. Thus, our first step is to identify these stains by subjecting the carpet to ultraviolet light. Once we have located all the stains, we neutralize and steam clean them. Even though this steam cleaning is enough to eliminate the odor, we go a step further by treating the carpet with a deodorizing agent which has a pleasant smell. We also recommend a Scoth Guard treatment to further protect the rug.
In many hosueholds, pets are treated as members of the family. But our dear fuzzies tend to leave a lot of hair and often stains on rugs and upholstery. Some pet hair is extremely difficult to vacuum. If not eliminated systematically, pet hair can lead to allergy symptoms in some people. My Home Carpet & Upholstery Care offers powerful and deep vacuuming to eliminate all pet hair from the carpets and upholstered furniture.

Color bleeding is a common issue for carpets that have suffered water damage. The longer the rug has been sitting in water, the greater potential for damage to its colors and all over design. This type of situation demands immediate action so give us a call (212) 658-0618 as soon as you can. For fine Oriental rugs that have bleeding issues, My Home Carpet & Upholstery Care restoration artisans use natural dyes that will match the rugs color. They will carefully restore the carpet to its pre-water damage look.
Moths can cause an increible amount of damage if you are not aware that you have an infection. Moths digest protein fibers such as wool, silk and specialty hair fibers, but these insects can also find and eat protein substances on synthetic fibers. The adults moths themselves cause no damage, but the larvae they produce are very damaging. It is the larvae that actually feed on wool. The moths thrive in dark, undisturbed areas where a rug gets little traffic and is not often vacuumed or the carpets and rugs were stashed a long time in a storage.
For everybody who is confronting moth damage with your carpets, don’t press the panic button, just give us a phone call immediately.
The first phase of our rug moth proofing process is to expose the infected rug to sunlight or high temperatures. Our technicians then treat the rug with an anti-bacterial solution. Once the moths have been killed, the rug is professionally cleaned and left to dry.
The second phase of our rug moth proofing is to repair any moth damage discovered in the rug. Our restoration artisans prepare a foundation for the rug by making warps and wefts. Tufts of the rugs fibers are then knotted to this base. Threads that are similar in texture and color to the original fibers of the rug are used. When we are done, your rug will look new again and you will be pleasantly surprised that you will be unable to identify the moth damaged areas.
If you wish we can also treat your rug with chemicals that will prevent any future moth damage.
