Benchmark’s 10 Core Steps

When considering what type of clean you need, do you mind if we ask you a few more questions to get you a more exact quote?


  • How long has it been since it’s last clean?
  • Would you consider the soiling level in your rugs – light, medium or heavy?
  • Do you have any special concerns like – Pet Spots or odors, Moth Damage, or Rips and Tears?

All of Benchmark’s carpet cleaning’s start with their Core 10-Steps followed by packages for you to choose exactly the clean you want:

Step #1.  Pre Inspection:  Every area rug is thoroughly inspected before cleaning, noting level of soiling, spots/stains, and wear.  Then we email or call you to review the inspection report, so you know exactly what to expect.

Step #2.  Dry Soil Removal:  Prior to washing, the gritty dry soil is removed from both the top and bottom of the rug.

Step #3.  Pre-Spray:  The soils are pre-conditioned to break them down.

Step #4.  Pre-Spot:  Difficult spots are treated with special solutions to increase chances for removal.

Step #5.  Fringe treatment:  If your area rug has fringe, they are also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

Step #6.  Hand Cleaning:  Your rug is hand cleaned with our Fine Rug Solutions, removing the deeply embedded soil.

Step #7.  Wash and Rinse:  We then wash and rinse the entire rug in our rug spa to flush away soil.  Then it is pH balanced to eliminate soil attracting residues.

Step #8.  Speed Drying:  Your rug is then dried flat, or hung dry, in a humidity controlled environment to speed the drying process.

Step #9:  Post-Grooming:  Each rug is finished with soft groomers.

Step #10:  Post Inspection:  A post walkthrough is performed before it is released for delivery!
