Why Choose Professional Carpet Cleaning?

In this, the age of DIY, you may be weighing the costs to the benefits of professional carpet cleaning. While there are important maintenance steps to be done more regularly, such as vacuuming, they only scratch the surface of what professional cleaning can achieve. Here’s why you should consider professional carpet cleaning:

  1. Deep Cleaning: Vacuuming only removes surface dirt and debris, while professional carpet cleaning penetrates deep into the fibers, extracting dirt, allergens, and bacteria that can’t be reached with regular vacuuming.
  2. Prolongs Carpet Life: Regular professional cleaning helps extend the life of your carpets by removing built-up dirt and debris that can cause fibers to break down over time.
  3. Improves Indoor Air Quality: Carpets trap dust, allergens, and other pollutants that can affect indoor air quality. Professional cleaning removes these contaminants, promoting a healthier living environment, especially for those with allergies or respiratory issues.
  4. Removes Stubborn Stains and Odors: Professional cleaners have the expertise and specialized equipment to tackle even the toughest stains and odors, leaving your carpets looking and smelling fresh.
  5. Enhances Appearance: Clean carpets can instantly transform the look and feel of a room, making it appear brighter, fresher, and more inviting.

Filtration dust

Have you seen dark lines begin to form around the edges of rooms, steps, or under doors? This is known as filtration dust. Filtration dust is very fine dust that usually accumulates due to airflow through the carpet fibers. When we are dealing with filtration dust, we can do one of two things. For basic filtration dust cleaning, we’ll use an oxide treatment and our wand. Our technicians can also do a more detailed cleaning where they scrub by hand or use a crevice tool. Ideally, if we are working with filtration dust, the rooms will be empty so we can access the entire perimeter of the home. If not all the furniture is previously moved and you need help, just let us know when you call to schedule.

Carpet Cleaning in Portland


A run-in with mold is always unfortunate, and you may think that a mild mold issue still needs a full carpet replacement! In actuality, a professional carpet cleaning service can go a long way in removing any signs of mold from your carpet. We have an anti-microbial treatment we can use when we clean that helps reduce any present mold and can give you peace of mind. We are not a mold remediation company, so if your circumstance with mold is severe, we do recommend searching for a company that specializes in that area.


It is amazing how a bad smell can change your entire experience. If you walk into a restaurant hungry and smell something sour, you probably decide to find somewhere else to eat. If you walk into a store or business and smell a bad smell, you’re probably going to try to move as quickly as you can to get the items that you need.  When there’s a bad odor in our homes, it creates an uneasy feeling and that comfortable feeling of being “home” is diluted.

Professional carpet cleaners like A+ Carpet Cleaning have been dealing with odor from the beginning. We have experience with smells like cigarettes, urine, feces, old food, and many other types of things you wouldn’t want to sense walking in the door. When you walk into your home at the end of the day, you wanted to be greeted by warmth, comfort, and familiarity…not something stinky.

To be as effective as possible, we have multiple different products and methods to use, depending on the kind of odor. If you are smelling a general odor that doesn’t seem pungent unless you have your nose to the floor, we typically recommend using our enzyme oxidation treatment. We would use it alongside our pre-spray, and it helps with moderate odors, dander, and pet accidents if applicable.

If you’re smelling something as soon as you walk through the door, we might recommend using the enzyme oxidation hand in hand with another product—our odor modification product. This product changes odors on contact and is our more extensive approach when it comes to smells.

Dye removal

Life happens, and sometimes that means an unfortunate dye stain on your cream-colored carpet. Rather than have someone patch the entire area, why not call a carpet cleaner who may be able to lift the stain and leave your carpet in one piece? Using specialized products and methods, A+ Carpet Cleaning has been able to help hundreds of people in the Portland area with dye stains. There is not many things quite as satisfying as a good stain removal.

Our Carpet Cleaning Services in Portland

At A+ Carpet Cleaning, we take pride in offering top-notch services tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether you need a one-time deep clean or regular maintenance, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of our premium services:

  1. Steam Cleaning: Also known as hot water extraction, steam cleaning is one of the most effective methods for deep cleaning carpets. Our powerful equipment heats water to high temperatures, which is then injected into the carpet fibers along with eco-friendly cleaning solutions. The combination of heat and cleaning agents loosens dirt and stains, which are then extracted using a powerful vacuum, leaving your carpets clean and fresh.

  4. Carpet Protection: Extend the life of your carpets and keep them looking like new with our carpet protection services. We apply a protective sealant to your carpets after cleaning, forming a barrier that repels dirt, stains, and spills, making them easier to clean and maintaining their appearance for longer.
  5. Eco-Friendly Solutions: We care about the environment and your health, which is why we use eco-friendly cleaning solutions that are safe for your family and pets. Our products are free from harsh chemicals and toxins, ensuring a clean and healthy home!
