Asheville Hardwood Floor Cleaning – Before and After

We’re back again with more epic before and after photos of our work! This is the first time we’ve spotlighted our Asheville hardwood floor cleaning skills in our before and after series.

As you can see, these floors were looking pretty worn when we arrived. The original luster of the wood is completely gone, and the surface is marred with scuff marks and—is that paint?

Asheville Upholstery Cleaning- Before and After

It has been a busy and exciting year so far for Five Step Carpet Cleaning. We’ve been getting some great before and after shots at some of our recent Asheville upholstery cleaning and carpet cleaning jobs, and we couldn’t wait to share them with you here on the blog!

Here are a couple of photos of the sofa that we cleaned recently, and as you can see, it was in dire need of attention when we arrived. It certainly looks like it’s been put through the paces of busy family life for several years. But we see stains like this all the time and we know what to do with them.

Upholstery Cleaning Asheville NC

Upholstery and Furniture Cleaning Asheville

You might not be able to tell it from our name, but at Five Step Carpet Cleaning we clean a lot more than just carpets. Among other things, we also handle upholstery cleaning needs in Asheville NC and the surrounding areas. We thought about naming our company “Five Step Carpet, Rug, Upholstery, Tile and Grout and Hardwood Cleaning”, but it wouldn’t fit on our business cards.

Upholstered furniture is the unfortunate victim of a lot of continuous, though unintended abuse. Beverage spills and food and ink stains are common. Even spilled water can often leave a stain. And you simply can’t avoid the dirt and grime that gradually gets ground into the fabric from years of use. It comes from your clothes, your pets, and even the oils on your hands. Life leaves your upholstery dingy and dull. And unless you cover your furniture in plastic, it will inevitably happen. But plastic detracts from the attractiveness of your upholstery, and it isn’t very comfortable to sit on, either.

The spot cleaning products available on the market don’t do much to lift the dirt and stains from your upholstery, either. And sometimes they can fade or otherwise damage the fabric. Not to mention, they are made with toxic ingredients that can be harmful to you and your family and pets.

But there is a solution! Our team of professionals can thoroughly clean all of the years of dirt and residue from your upholstery, giving it new life and vibrancy. And for an added benefit, our cleaning process is completely green and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about negative health effects for your family, your pets or the environment.

Chances are, you’re eventually going to need upholstery cleaning. So when that time comes, call us at 828.772.1824 or reach out to us via our Contact Form. We’ll take care of it.

Asheville Carpet Cleaning for Businesses


At Five Step Carpet Care, we provide Asheville carpet cleaning services not only for residential carpet and rug care, but also for Asheville’s businesses, from offices to hotels to restaurants. If your business has carpet and gets a lot of foot traffic, seasonal carpet cleaning is not an option; it’s a necessity. Regular carpet cleaning may seem like a large, extraneous expense. In fact, it might seem like you’re saving money by not having it done. But have you ever thought about how much it may cost you to put it off?

When you calculate in missed revenue from customers deciding not to patronize your establishment due to dirty or dingy floors, and the bad reviews that get passed around as a result, dirt could be costing your business tens of thousands of dollars per year! It’s certainly much easier on the budget, and better for your business’ reputation, to invest in regular carpet and rug cleaning.

Our commercial clients in WNC include such high traffic businesses as Fun Depot, Abbington Green Bed and Breakfast and The Chocolate Lounge, plus many more. They prefer Five Step because of our green, non-toxic cleaning solutions, and the fact that when we clean the stains out of your carpets, they actually stay gone! Here’s what Roy Dickerson of Fun Depot had to say about our Asheville carpet cleaning services:

“Talking about a Guy who knows how to clean carpets! We at Asheville’s Fun Depot have had 5 or 6 carpet cleaning companies come to the Fun Depot to clean the carpets over the past 7 years. After they finished the carpets looked fine, but in a couple of days the stains resurfaced. A couple of years ago, I called Scott with Five Step to see what he could do. For the first time, the stains were gone. Scotty and his team are always very prompt and professional. I highly recommend his service for rugs or carpet!”

So if your business’ carpets are starting to show wear, remember: it’s cheaper to keep them clean and regularly maintained than it is to put it off til later!

In addition to rugs and carpets, we also clean wood floors, furniture, upholstery and tile and grout, and we serve Asheville, Hendersonville and all the surrounding areas. For more information or a quote, please call us at 828.772.1824 or use our contact form.

Green Carpet Cleaning- What Are the Five Steps?

It’s in our name, and referred to in all of our promotional material – our famous “Five Step Process” for restoring your carpets and rugs to their pre-worn glory. Our clients in Western North Carolina agree that the five steps (along with our reliability and professionalism) are what make us Asheville’s best green carpet cleaning company. You might have even heard from friends or business associates how well the five steps work, but you’re still mystified. What are the five steps??

We’re not interested in smoke and mirrors. A lot of carpet cleaners out there will come and clean your carpets and get all the stains out, or so you think, until a few days later, the stains re-emerge from beneath the carpet or rug, and you realize you’ve just wasted a bunch of money on nothing! On top of that, these companies won’t even tell you what goes into their cleaning solutions!

Our green carpet cleaning solution is non-toxic, biodegradable, colorless, odorless and hypoallergenic. It contains no soap, bleach or enzymes. That means it’s safe for your carpets and healthy for your kids and pets. Also, we use a lot less water than our industry competitors. This means lower risk of shrinkage and color fading, and it’s much more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Since our cleaning solution is soap-free, your carpets will stay clean longer, as there is no residue left over for dirt and grime to adhere to.

At Five Step Carpet Care, we believe that honesty is the best policy, and that if we only use the most environmentally friendly cleaning products, we can afford to be honest about what we use. We believe that the health of our clients and the environment is more important than our bottom line. So without further ado, here are the famous “Five Steps”!

  • STEP 1: A professional soil extractor is used to remove deep down dirt, dust and allergens.
  • STEP 2: Non-toxic cleaning solution is applied to carpet fibers with special attention given to problem areas.
  • STEP 3: A professional rotary activator is used to loosen and lift deeply embedded soil and stains from the carpet. At this step, we also use hot water extraction if necessary.
  • STEP 4: A machine with a special 100% cotton bonnet is used to remove any remaining soil and pollutants. It also accelerates drying.
  • STEP 5: Carpet pile is groomed to give it the new carpet look and feel. Furniture is placed back to its original position with special protective pads.

And that’s it! Not so complex, and it really works! If you’re looking for green carpet cleaning in Asheville, NC and the surrounding areas, give us a call at 828.772.1824 or use our contact form to drop us a line today!
