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?

  • Would you consider the soiling level light, medium or heavy?
  • Do you have any special concerns like – Pet Spots or odors, Allergies, or Frays

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:

  2. Step #2.  Area Preparation:  We will prepare the area where the upholstery will be cleaned to protect your surroundings.
  3. Step #3.  Pre-Vacuum:  All textiles should be vacuumed thoroughly before cleaning.  This step will remove dry soils and loose particles from cracks and crevices.
  4. Step #4.  Pre-Treatment:  Depending on your fabric, a special solution designed for your fabric type and soiling conditions, will be applied to “emulsify” the soil.
  5. Step #5.  Pre-Spot:  Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase their chances of removal.
  6. Step #6.  Pre-Groom:  The fabric will then be gently groomed using soft brushes or towels to loosen the soil.
  7. Step #7.  Soil Extraction & Rinse:  The soil is extracted from the fabric with a gentle, controlled rinse.
  8. Step #8.  Neutralize:  The fabric is then pH balanced to maintain its soft, fresh feel.
  9. Step #9:  Post-Spot:  Any remaining spots will be treated with special stain removal products.
  10. Step #10:  Post Groom:  Fabrics with a pile (such as velvet) will be gently combed with a special brush.
  11. Step #11:  Speed Dry (if necessary):  High velocity air movers will be placed on the upholstery to speed dry the fabric.
  12. Step #12:  Post Cleaning Inspection:  Our specialist will review the cleaning results with you to insure that your expectations have been met or exceeded.
