Professionally cleaned carpets look better, last longer and are healthier than poorly maintained carpets. Most customers report an immediate improvement in the air quality of their home after carpet cleaning and a dramatically improved appearance. With the increasing costs of new carpet installation, it only makes sense to protect your investment. Regular carpet cleaning can double the life of your carpet, for a fraction of the cost!
At Clean Rite, we primarily use the hot water extraction method of professional carpet cleaning(commonly called steam cleaning) which is recommended by the carpet manufacturers. For specific applications, we also offer bonnet cleaning, encapsulation cleaning, and even dry cleaning. Our technicians are trained in carpet identification to ensure that we use the best process for your floors.

♦ Protecting your furniture and walls
♦ Preparing the carpet with a vacuum pre-cleaning and/or stain spot treatments

Frequently Asked Carpet Cleaning Questions:
♦ How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
Your carpet cleaning needs will vary depending on use (a family with 5 kids and a dirt driveway will need more cleanings than a single person in a high-rise apartment) but carpet manufacturers recommend annual cleanings. While your carpet may not look particularly dirty just remember that all the dust that lands on your furniture also lands on the carpet, it’s just falling down in the fibers. Can you imagine if you only dusted once a year?
A deep cleaning will extract all the dust and allergens and make your home cleaner and fresher, plus it will add years to the life of your carpets!
♦ I spilled ______ on my carpet. Can you remove the stain?
Before we even start, our certified technician will walk through the area and identify stained or discolored areas. Our regular cleaning will remove many discolorations but each van has it’s own selection of specialty spot removers to help us remove most stains. On very difficult or old stains, full removal may not be possible but we can usually improve it dramatically.
♦ Why shouldn’t I just clean my own carpets?
While inexpensive home “steam” cleaners and rentals exist, they just don’t compare to what our truck-mounted extraction systems and professional technicians and commercial cleansers can do. While they may provide a small improvement, they don’t penetrate deep into the fibers and usually leave a lot of dirt and soap behind. Not to mention the cost of the equipment, chemicals and your time!
♦ Do I need to move the furniture?
Our technicians will move most items of furniture and work around larger heavier pieces. If you require that any larger items be moved, let us know and we can ensure that two technicians are sent for your cleaning.
♦ Are you a franchise?
No! Greg Raso started Clean Rite in 1999 with a single van. We now proudly serve all of Rhode Island and nearby Eastern Connecticut with our fleet of trucks and talented technicians but you will still find Greg at the shop every day.
