  • Stay Cleaner Longer

    • Extend Time Between Cleanings

      Encapsulation cleaning, commonly called low-moisture cleaning, is a service best used as an interim option between professional deep cleanings. While this service does not eliminate the need for deep cleaning or restorative methods like hot water extraction, it can extend the period between these necessary deep cleanings

    • Less Time Drying, More Time Staying Open

      Because encapsulation carpet cleaning relies on a process and equipment that uses up to 98% less water than hot water extraction, dry time is minimal, allowing technicians to clean with little to no interruption to normal business operations

  • A Proven and Reliable Process

    • Quickly Remove Contaminants

      Using power sprayer equipment, our technicians apply a special encapsulant cleaner to all areas of the carpet needing cleaned. The encapsulant formula surrounds dirt and soils to quickly immobilize them for easy removal. This process allows the soils to be removed easier, prevents rapid resoiling, and reduces wicking

    • Refresh Your Space

      A counter rotating brush machine is operated across the carpet to dislodge the encapsulated dirt and debris from deep within the carpet's fibers. When combined with the encapsulant cleaner, the CRB reduces dry time, the potential for wicking, and slip hazards. An added benefit is that the brushes lift the carpet fibers, giving the surface new life

Our Encapsulation Cleaning Process

  1. Our team begins every encapsulation cleaning with a proper and thorough preinspection. We look for missing carpet fibers, delamination (or separation of the carpet from its backing), loose seams, fraying, unraveling fibers, and any other potential issues
  2. Next, we vacuum the entire surface using commercial-grade vacuum cleaners to remove any loose dirt, debris, and other soils
  3. Once the area has been thoroughly vacuumed, technicians apply our encapsulant cleaner using power sprayers, applying cleaner to all areas needing cleaned. Polymers surround the dirt and soils on the carpet fibers to crystallize and loosen them for simple removal
  4. Then, we operate a counter rotating brush or CRB machine across the carpet to dislodge the encapsulated dirt and debris from deep within the fibers
  5. Once all the encapsulated dirt and debris has been removed, the floor is spot cleaned by vacuum to remove any resulting shedding or fuzz

Stanley Steemer's encapsulation carpet cleaning process is designed to accomodate your hours of operation. Our team serves a variety of industries and will work with you to establish a cleaning schedule with little to no interruption of your business, so you can stay clean—and stay open!
