WNC Carpet Cleaning – Before and After

Time for more amazing before and after photos from our archives! We work hard week in and week out cleaning carpets, upholstery, wood floors, and more for our customers in WNC, and from time to time we like to share pictures of our work here on the blog. This week we want to show you a great example of the type of stain a lot of people might think is “impossible” to clean.

In this before photograph, as you can see, there is a big, black stain on the carpet. It looks like someone dumped a bag of charcoal out and then stamped it into the carpet fibers. But this is more likely a case of dirt, and possibly liquids, being ground into the carpet and left to sit over time. Either way, the carpet looks done for! We receive many worried calls from folks who have similar carpet stains. They’re not sure if they should have the carpets cleaned, or if it would be better to just rip them out and burn them!

But not to worry. We can tackle stains like this and worse. In our time cleaning carpets, we’ve cleaned everything from chocolate sauce to candle wax out for our customers. So here’s the after pic of that black-stained carpet section above.
