Carpet Cleaning & Water Restoration

Cleaning your tile and grout by hand is tough work and is often ineffective in removing stains.  It is almost impossible to achieve the same results as professional services with just elbow grease. Dirt builds up over time, dulling your tile’s appearance and darkening the grout, especially in high traffic areas. Here at Chris’ Carpet, we know how important it is for you to have a clean home.  The quickest and most effective way to revitalize your dull tile floors is to have professional tile and grout cleaning services. 3 reasons you should consider professional tile and grout cleaning in Clearwater are:   It’s easy: Instead of scrubbing for hours at dirty grout and cloudy tiles, you can call a professional to do the work for you.  With specialized machines, we’ll get your floors cleaned in half the time, with better results than if you had done it yourself. Even if you consider renting a cleaning machine, if you’re not trained to operate it correctly, you won’t get the same professional looking results. Grout is porous: This means dirt, grime, and spills will seep deep within itself. When dirt is this deep, it is impossible to get it out without a professional’s help. Don’t try to handle this mess yourself; you’ll end up wasting your time and money on products that don’t work. Not all cleaners are for all tiles: Many cleaning solutions are not appropriate for stone or tile because they will slowly deteriorate the material. Store bought cleaners contain…
What are your options for professional furniture cleaning in Tampa? How do you find the right textile and upholstery specialist to trust with your home furnishings? Proven experience, a track record of years of service in the community, and industry certification are all evidence of a reliable provider. Chris’ Carpet Service has been providing furniture cleaning in Tampa for over thirty years. We constantly update our training and we have multiple certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We started as family-owned business and we remain “right-sized” to provide all of our customers with the highest level of personalized service. Furniture Cleaning Methods We offer two methods of furniture cleaning, depending on the furnishing material and the amount and nature of any stains and dirt. Hot Water Extraction (HWE) is our primary technique. It works well for most textiles and is completely safe for your materials when used by a certified technician. This approach is similar to what people generally think of as “steam cleaning.” And, yes, there are HWE machines available for rent to the public. They are not as strong as our professional equipment and will not do as complete a job, and in fact, could damage your furnishings. Why bother when you can have guaranteed results with our affordable furniture cleaning in Tampa? For some types of stains that don’t respond to the HWE method, we utilize Dry Solvent Cleaning. This procedure uses a waterless compound in spray, liquid or powder form. This…

Here in Clearwater, upholstery cleaning is a necessary evil; and whether you need a big stain removed, or just everyday markings, you should know when to do it yourself and when to call a professional. By doing some extra cleaning each week, you will able to keep your furniture looking brand new and save yourself money. Some everyday steps you can take to extend the life of your sofa are: 1. Vacuum upholstery with a brush attachment once a week. This will remove the dirt, dust, skin cells, and hair that accumulate each day. 2. Use a bristled brush to clean off your furniture if there is no time to vacuum. By using medium-pressured strokes, you can get the same result as vacuuming. Make sure to clean the brush after each use. 3. To protect your sofa, put a blanket on top of it before sitting; this will keep hair and dust off, while also protecting it from any possible spills. Make sure to wash these blankets once a week. You may think that renting some kind of furniture cleaning machine will be a cheaper option rather than hiring a professional upholstery cleaning company in Clearwater. Unfortunately, this can be a huge gamble. A rented machine will not have the same suction power that a professional’s will; also rented equipment is not always maintained as it should be. Even if you are able to get a well-maintained machine, using it properly requires a decent amount of skill and practice, which…
For your basic, everyday hardwood cleaning needs, feel free to do it yourself! But for the bigger things here in St. Petersburg, we can help you. If you want to keep your wood floors looking new, here are four things to keep in mind: Sweep and/or vacuum often; dirt that sits for a long period of time will eventually become ground into the wood and destroy it.  Especially remember to clean high traffic areas as often as once a day, or add a door mat. Wipe up any wet spills immediately. Wood is easily damaged by water, and any spill that is left can quickly ruin your floor. Take this into account when mopping also; use a damp mop instead of a soaking wet one. Make sure you know what kind of finish your floor has, as it will determine what kind of cleaning products you should use.  Choose the correct type of door mat or rug.  Some rugs with plastic backing can scratch the wood, and some dyes have even been known to leave a stain. Any carpet store will be able to help you find the right rug for your floor. Unfortunately, these everyday cleaning tips will not help you in the case of emergency, and that is where we come in.  At Chris’ Carpet we can help you with all of your hardwood cleaning problems in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, from water damage to scratches; we will provide unparalleled service for your beautiful wood floors. 
Pets add joy and meaning to our lives, and it has even been said that they decrease stress in our lives… when they are not using the carpet as their own personal bathroom, that is.  Carpet cleaning becomes even more miserable when you are combatting pet odors and stains.  Here at Chris’ Carpet Service, one of our specialties is removing both pet odors and stains in the homes of Clearwater, Largo and nearby areas.  Not only will urine stain the carpet, but it will also cause unwanted odors that will remain even after it dries.  We will provide you with a treatment for the both the odor and the stains, so your carpet will look as if nothing ever happened to it.  You will definitely want to call as soon as possible once an accident has happened, because the longer you wait, the deeper the odor will sink into your carpet.  While we can work on all pet stains and odors, no matter when they occurred, it becomes increasingly more difficult to get back to the original color of the carpet as time passes.  Bacteria from pet stains can actually bind themselves to your carpet and create the first smell that urine can cause; but once the bacteria dies, another very different odor will occur. Many carpet cleaning products that claim to be pet stain removers will only sanitize the area, and attempt to cover up this odor with other scents. At Chris’ Carpet Service of Clearwater and Largo, we…

Our professionals will restore your upholstery to its original condition. Hot Water Extraction Hot Water Extraction is the preferred method by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the most popular choice for furniture cleaning in Clearwater. Hot Water Extraction uses a combination of water pressure for agitation and hot water to increase reaction rate in order to get rid of stains, dirt, dinginess, and debris. The method includes: The area is preconditioned with an alkaline agent (pH 7+). Water pressure leads to light agitation, which helps loosen the soiled particles. The surfaced is passed over with a tool to rinse out the preconditioner. An acetic acid solution is used to create a neutral pH. The acidic solution and the soil are extracted together. The surface is then dried to the client’s satisfaction. For the furniture cleaning process to be successful, professional technology is your best bet. The equipment at Chris Carpet is stronger and faster than any rental unit available…
