Professional Carpet Cleaning in SW Florida by Tru-Clean Surface Care

Carpets are a staple in many homes, providing comfort and warmth. However, they require regular maintenance to retain their aesthetic and functional value. In SW Florida, the need for professional carpet cleaning is even more pronounced due to the sand composition in our soil and unique environmental conditions. This article explores the value of carpet cleaning and why Tru-Clean Surface Care is the best choice.

Value of Carpet Cleaning By Tru-Clean Surface Care

Allergen Reduction

Regular carpet cleaning significantly reduces allergens such as dust, pollen, and pet dander, which can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. In SW Florida, where humidity is high, keeping these allergens at bay is crucial for maintaining indoor air quality.

Dust Mite Elimination

Professional carpet cleaning also eliminates dust mites and microscopic creatures that thrive in dirty carpets. These mites can cause allergic reactions and respiratory issues, making regular cleaning essential.

Enhanced Appearance

Clean carpets enhance the overall appearance of your home. Regular cleaning removes dirt, stains, viruses, and spots, restoring the carpet’s original beauty and making your space look fresh and inviting.

Prolonged Carpet Life

Dirt and debris can cause the carpet fibers to wear down over time (hence the appearance of traffic lanes). Regular professional steam cleaning helps maintain the carpet’s integrity, prolonging its lifespan and saving you money in the long run.

Cost Savings on Replacements

By maintaining your carpets through regular professional cleaning, you can avoid the high costs of replacing them prematurely. This makes carpet cleaning a cost-effective investment. We have clients that have had the same carpeting for 25 years, and through proper carpet cleaning maintenance, their carpeting looks just as good as in the newer homes.

Improved Property Value

Well-maintained carpets can enhance the value of your property. Prospective buyers will appreciate a home with clean, well-kept carpets, potentially increasing your property’s market value. Well-kept carpeting and other textiles also communicate that you care about your house; chances are, everything else associated with your home has also been well cared for. The number one call we receive from realtors and property management companies is to clean the carpeting to enhance its “curb appeal.”

Tru-Clean Surface Care’s Carpet Cleaning Process | Hot Water (Steam Cleaning) Extraction

Carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction (steam cleaning) as the preferred method for deep cleaning carpets. This method effectively removes dirt, spills, and allergens, ensuring a thorough cleaning.


The cleaning process begins with a thorough pre-inspection to identify areas requiring special attention and determine the best cleaning approach. We use Xenon lighting to uncover hidden stains and pet urine and effectively treat the carpeting to industry standards.


A pre-treatment solution breaks down stubborn spots, spills, and embedded dirt, making them easier to remove during extraction. Our technician will apply a solution to eliminate urine salts and bacteria for carpeting with pet issues, followed by a live enzyme treatment and a thoroughly exhaustive steam cleaning.


A hot water pH-controlled acid rinse removes loosened dirt, stains, and cleaning solution from the carpet, leaving your carpet fibers “nice and fluffy.”

Fan Assisted Drying

Once your carpets have been thoroughly cleaned, our technician will use a specialized fan to assist in drying them. Once we complete your cleaning and leave your home, your carpet can be expected to dry within 2-3 hours, depending on outside humidity.

Post-Cleaning Inspection

After cleaning, the technician will complete a final inspection with the client to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the condition of the carpeting and with our service and to address any remaining issues.

Professional Grade Spotter As A Gift

To complete the cleaning, our technician will leave you with a bottle of a professional grade spotter for “life’s little oops.”
