Why Truck-Mount Steam Clean Your Carpets?

Cleaning your carpets not only makes them look better, it makes them lasts longer too! You should protect your investment with regular vacuuming and having your carpets professionally steam cleaned. Most companies will tell you that their method is the best. We want you to decide. Consider these questions:

Would you think of washing your hair without rinsing the shampoo away?

  • Would you wash your dishes without doing a final rinse?
  • How about washing your clothing without using the rinse cycle on your washing machine?

The idea of doing these things seems silly. Then why do shampoo carpet cleaners, dry carpet cleaners and the majority of steam carpet cleaners leave the carpeting saturated with chemical residue?

This explains why your carpets often re-soil within a few days of being cleaned. Detergent residues attract soil. Residues may also pose a health risk.


At Mac's Steamer Carpet Cleaner we have eliminated this problem. We use a special solution rinse to flush the cleaning detergents away (yet manage to average the same carpet drying time as other non-solution rinse companies). We prefer using truck mounted steam cleaning equipment because truck mounted steam cleaning plants generate the maximum amount of water temperature and vacuum needed to remove the deepest soils and flush detergent residues away.

We follow a step by step routine so you can rest assure that the service we provide is precise, consistent and of quality workmanship. Sit back, relax and let us do the cleaning for you!

Our Process

  • 1. Pre-inspection of areas you desire to be cleaned.
  • 2. Detailed vacuuming (if necessary).
  • 3. Pre-treatment of any stains or spots that may be of concern to you.
  • 4. Furniture is moved with care, so we may clean under it.
  • 5. Furniture is then tabbed or blocked to protect the carpet and the furniture from moisture.
  • 6. Pre-conditioner/cleaner is applied to the carpet with special attention to traffic areas.
  • 7. Entire carpet is cleaned with truck mount steam cleaning at 230 Degrees with a cleaning wand and all soil particles and pollutants are flushed away from the carpet and captured in the recovery tank.
  • 8. Post inspection and treatment of any remaining spots or stains.
  • 9. Topical treatment of specialty products such as 3M Scotchgard or pet odor control.
  • 10. Post review of all areas professionally steam cleaned.
