These are Before and After pictures from different, very satisfied customers. Take a look!
"Help, the Landlord is coming tomorrow for an inspection!"
This one took some work, but in the end it was worth it to help the tenants pass inspection. We'll see you guys when you are moving out and need your security deposit back.
This hallway, near the front door, sees a lot of traffic and the messes made by a new little puppy. I'll admit it took some work, but with a new baby on the way for this growing family it was all worth it. A little determination and a fair amount of eco-friendly, baby safe soaps and the carpet looks like new again. Congratulations on the baby guys!
This an avid smoker's bedroom. The darkness you see at the bottom is all the ash, tar, and whatnot that settled on the carpet over 2 years. Yes, 2 years. The top is what we cleaned. No way to do that for a pair of lungs...
Don't smoke kids!
We decided to clean this entryway as a nice gesture to a client. We thought the grout was dark grey with some grimy blackness. Imagine our shock when the grout was actually a light tan! The clients were surprised as well.
I'm not sure the client at this job knew the pets were using the area under a piece of furniture as a bathroom. They never will either.
Teen Girl's Bedroom Floor
Makeup, lots of makeup...and spills! The parents were ready to write this room off, but let me take a crack at it first. It took almost an hour, but I managed to save the carpet. They were very pleased with the results, and I have to admit I was pretty happy too. (Whew)
Greasy Car Interior
A local gear-head had lent his car jack to a buddy. When the friend returned it, the jack was simply placed in the back of his well kept SUV. This is why the back of his vehicle is smeared with heavy grease. Some environmentally friendly soaps, high heat, and more than a little elbow-grease later the back looks as good as new! You guys have fun racing out there!
This is a ceramic tile with a textured surface, very much like travertine. Dirt and grease had built up in the texture as well as the grout lines, causing the floor to look dirty even though the owners were meticulous about mopping. Still, mopping just can't get into those deep grooves, no matter how frequently you do it. With some extremely high pressure and heat, not to mention the application of some pet friendly detergents, we had the tile back to the way it looked when it was first installed.
Another Microfiber Sofa
This sectional has been in the family for 12 years and for about half that time has played host to kids and pets. Fortunately it was nothing a little pet and child friendly soap, and a good amount of elbow grease couldn't fix. Now it's ready for family movie night. Enjoy guys!
Stairs are a high traffic area. You may not even notice the build-up in dirt until you see an image like this. With Sterling Carpet Care you get the stair AND the riser cleaned, leaving the whole stair case clean and ready for more traffic.
This is an office in an airplane hanger, so as you can imagine dirt and grease was a major issue. Especially since it hadn't been cleaned in nearly 15 years! As you can likely see, the right side was cleaned while I let the left side be to show a clear contrast. All in all I feel like it came out pretty great, and the owner agreed.
Finger Paint Panic
These grandparents threw a birthday party with finger paints! As you can likely see, the kids had a great time. While a white rug was a casualty, the carpet was salvageable. It all came out great, ready for the next birthday party!
This carpet is meticulously cared for by its owner. In fact, the carpet is 20 years old and looks like it was installed last week! While it can be impressive to illustrate some of the high contrast "Before and Afters", I thought it would be nice to show what you can expect even in a home where you wouldn't think the carpets need much TLC. The owner was happy with the results, and I was too.
Blood Stained Rug
This is an area rug in a kitchen. There was a mishap with some broken glass which resulted in a trail of blood over this pristine rug, yikes! The owner was worried it wouldn't come out, but with a little determination and a lot of environmentally friendly soap, it looks good as new!
Adhesive Remnants on Hallway Floor
The lines you see on the floor are the remnants of adhesive tape used to stick down a floor runner, which accounts for the contrast you notice. I won't claim that I got all of the adhesive out, but I did get about 95% of it...as well as got the carpet to match. It took some serious work, but the owner was SUPER happy that the tape was removed.
Kitchen Tile II
Here is another kitchen in a home that is meticulously and regularly cleaned. The owner understood that simply mopping couldn't get the buildup of grime out from the grout grooves. Regular mopping can prolong the amount of time your tile will need a deep clean. However, eventually every tile floor will need the gentle scrubbing of over 1,000 PSI of 300 degree water that only a professional machine can provide. We were both very happy with the end product.
This family room has a beautiful area rug which normally sits in front of the sofa, leaving a pretty stark contrast. After a little work and the aplication of some pet friendly soaps, the carpet all matches again. It's almost a shame to cover it back up (sigh).
Den Adjacent to Kitchen
This den is immediately adjacent to the kitchen and as such sees a lot of spills as well as traffic. After moving the love-seat I was able to get the carpet back to new.
Very Stained Hallway
This is a hallway from a rental home where the tenants created quite a few spills. I managed to remove not only these stains, but also marker, crayon, ground-in-dirt, and gum (Yes, GUM!).
Blood Stained Sectional Sofa
The family dog scratched itself until it had a raw/bloody spot, then rolled all over the sofa. I managed to get out all the bloody spots, but also made it look like new!
