Soil Test

Dry Soil / Contamination Test

  • We agitate the carpet to loosen the crusty contamination and biofilm.
  • We use a black cloth at the end of a vacuum hose to trap contamination between it and the crevice tool.
  • We consistently do the same size area to ascertain how much contamination is hidden inside the fibers.
  • This helps us determine what level of cleaning is needed.

White Towel Test

  • Spray or apply a general spotting solution to a 3” circle of carpet
  • Gently agitate this area
  • Place a twice folded new white cotton spotting towel over the spot
  • Apply a lot of pressure for at least 30 seconds
  • Repeat if very soiled
  • Helps determine the level of cleaning that will be needed

Our different levels of clean, currently we highly recommend Platinum or Gold. We can do some on-site testing to see if you only need Silver or Bronze. The Silver and Bronze can be just as clean as Platinum if the carpet only needs a maintenance cleaning.

What we depicted here for Silver and Bronze was the carpet that was too soiled to begin.
