Is Your Carpet Under Warranty?

Is Your Carpet Under Warranty?


Did you just recently purchase carpet? Did the salesman talk to you about a warranty? Did you READ the warranty? Part of a general carpet cleaning warranty is having your carpets professionally cared for. And not by a rug doctor or a run of the mill cleaner from a big box store. You have to have to use someone that is certified to clean professionally. We are able to do that for you!

Midwest and Carpet Warranties.

Midwest prides themselves on being the best. And part of being the best is having the proper education and understanding what sets us apart big companies like Sears and Woodard. What sets us apart is our technicians. Our technicians have gone through the proper training to know how to use the cleaning agents and equipment properly. Additionally, our techs have been trained to communicate the proper cleaning techniques to you, the customer.

Midwest wants to help you understand your carpet warranty and how to keep it whether you are a residential or commercial customer. Talk to a tech today about setting up the regular scheduled cleaning and getting proper documentation for your warranty.

After the Carpet Warranty…

In addition, we recommend that even after the warranty has expired, you maintain a proper cleaning schedule. This could be the difference between a rug that lasts for 5 years and one that lasts for 50 years. We clean some carpets that have been in commercial spaces for longer than you can imagine. We have multiple bowling alleys in the area that have had the same carpet for 50+ years, and it’s STILL looking brand new thanks to regular cleaning. If that can happen in a commercial space with that much oil, just think what we can do for the carpet in your home!

4 Reasons to hire Professional Cleaners

4 Reasons to hire Professional Cleaners

Safer Cleaning Agents

Professional Cleaners are not necessarily concerned with the cost of the cleaner. We are not willing to buy the cheaper brand and sacrifice our safety or yours. We only buy the ones that work and that are safe for the environment.

More Powerful Equipment

Professional Cleaners use equipment that works hard to get the stains out. We use a tractor-mount engine that provides much much more horsepower than your normal brook or sweeper.


When you use a rented carpet cleaner, the carpet is left wet. Professional Cleaners use fans to dry the carpet before we are even gone.

Further Reach

When we clean your ducts, we are able to reach way down into the system without taking it completely apart. Saving you time and money.

Midwest Commercial Carpet Cleaning

 Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Commercial Carpet Cleaning is one of the tougher jobs for a business and for a carpet cleaner. Commercial carpets are always being walked on by muddy shoes, oily shoes, gummy shoes…  Everyone drops crumbs on them. And these things need cleaned OFTEN. Sadly you just can’t close up shop for a day and scrub them, and renting those do it yourself cleaners is a waste of time. So here is what we suggest, hire us! We have a lot of well known restaurants, bowling alleys, stores, etc. that we clean regularly. We even have car dealerships we clean on a weekly or monthly basis.

You’re best bet as a business owner is to get on a cleaning cycle with us or a cleaner like us. A cleaner who is knowledgeable about how to remove stains and keep bacteria from growing under your carpet and in the pad. We would love to come by and do a free estimate to determine the treatments needed and how often.

Instead of you staying extra to do it, let us come in and do it during your closed hours!!

Commercial Carpet Cleaning by Midwest Carpet & Duct Cleaning

The video above is one of our favorite clients. Just on the Illinois side of the river, in Columbia, IL, we clean the West Park Bowl. At one point in time, my parents owned this bowling alley, so I spent a lot of time growing up there. Since the business has changed hands, and I go back with my family to bowl or eat dinner. They have great music on the weekends and lots of other stuff going on. I am fortunate that they gave Midwest the opportunity to prove we are the best.

As you can see in the video, one of our technicians is sucking the dullness right out of the carpet. The dullness is caused by the oil from the lanes and the oil from the lanes is holding sand in the carpet as well. We do a lot to keep their carpet looking great, but the clean carpet has helped them with so many other things. For instance, the smell. The smell of the bowling alley stays fresh because of our help.

Before we ever started cleaning, the State banned smoking from inside restaurants. Since, our cleaning has helped rid the bowling alley of the tar, the smell, the smoke, etc. If you ever allowed smoking in your establishment we urge you to try carpet cleaning to help neutralize the smell. We will gladly help with some of the issues you might be having from the years of smoking in your facility as well.

Thank you, Eric Frierdich




12 Steps of Great Carpet Cleaning


12_Steps_of_Great_Carpet_CleaningThere are 12 steps of Great Carpet Cleaning

  1. Pre-Inspection

    1. First of all, our technicians walk through your home with you, visually inspecting the carpet.
    2. They will listen to you concerns and identify potential permanent stains.
    3. At the end of the estimate, your technician will leave you with a summary of cost and your expected results.
  2. Furniture Moving

    1. Our regularly pricing includes moving sofas, chairs, tables, and smaller items.
    2. Traditionally, beds, dressers, and heavier pieces cost extra to move and sometimes are not necessary. Ask you consultant for their advice and potential cost.
  3. Commercial Pre-Vacuum

    1. We remove dry soil by thoroughly vacuuming with commercial powered vacuums.
  4. Pre-Spray

    1. We apply a preconditioning agent to soak and break down traffic area soil and general spots for a more thorough cleaning.
  5. Pre-Spot

    1. We pre-treat difficult spots  with special solutions to increase chances of removal.
    2. Be sure to tell your technician about red and pet stains
  6. Soil Extraction and Rinse.

    1. The carpet is then thoroughly cleaned and rinsed using a powerful truck mounted hot water extraction cleaning system without over wetting the carpet or leaving a sticky residue behind.
  7. Dry Pass

    1. After cleaning, we do a dry pass to remove any possible over spray from the process to promote a faster dry time.
    2. We also run fans on our smaller jobs to increase the drying time of your carpets.
  8. Post Spot

    1. Any spots or stains still remaining will get extra treatment with our many cleaning agents.
    2. For longer carpet life and fewer permanent stains, be sure to have a professional carpet protector applied to your carpet such as scotch-guard.
  9. Neutralize

    1. It is very important to balance the pH of the textile.
    2. Neutralizing helps eliminate re-soiling, makes the carpet feel soft and fresh, and it prepares the carpet for carpet protector.
  10. Post Groom

    1. Your carpet is groomed with a professional groomer so that the pile of your carpet is standing tall when we leave.
    2. Post grooming helps the carpet pile dry faster and in the right position.
  11. Speed Dry

    1. High velocity air movers are placed onto the carpet immediately after cleaning to promote faster drying.
    2. Carpets are virtually dry when we have finished.
  12. Post Cleaning Inspection

    1. Our technicians will walk through your home with you to point out the cleaning results to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your cleaning.

How do you remove Red Wine Stains from Carpet?


Red Wine Stains after Mother’s Day?


That’s unfortunate. But when the family gets together, its supposed to be fun! Don’t be stressed about trying to get that stain out.. There are plenty of DIY ways to get that red wine out. Here’s an example:
With a white cloth, try and blot as much of the red wine stain as you can. The more you soak up, the less you’ll have to remove.
After you finish blotting, pour a bit of cold water directly onto the wine stain. During this helps dilute what remains of the stain, making blotting a bit easier. Continue blotting until you find that no more of the stain will come out.
Now prepare a baking soda paste by mixing a three to one ratio of water to baking soda and applying it to the affected area. Once the paste is dry, vacuum the stain.

Why won’t this DIY solution work?

Well, it might for your top stain, but it doesn’t extract what is in the pad below the carpet. The carpet might be looking great, but the next wetness that hits this carpet, wine will return. Red is the hardest stain to get out. The pink remains for years!

Secondly, the baking soda paste could bleach your carpet. Ever notice how sometimes you clean up a stain and that spot is lighter than the other carpet around? That’s what some cleaners can do to carpet. It is important to only use natural or professional grade cleaners to get the stain out.

Calling us prevents Red Wine Stains from returning!

We use a combination of extraction, cleaning agents, heat and cold to remove that stain. We treat each stain for their specific need. We then test to see if the red is going to resurface before we leave.

Call for a free estimate. We walk you through our process and let you decide to let us clean it or to take the plunge on your own.
