There is nothing like having carpet on the floors in your home, it can add a sense of coziness to a room and comfort under your feet. But like most every other type of flooring product available today, you will need to periodically have your carpet professionally cleaned in order to remove soil and buildup that occurs over time which simply cannot be removed with routine vacuuming or rental carpet machines from your local store.
At Son Bright Systems we are experts in Carpet Cleaning and have been cleaning carpets in homes and businesses throughout the Tampa Bay Area form many years. We clean all types of carpet including Nylon, Polypropylene, Wool, Wool Blends, Polyester, and Acrylic. Since all carpet is not created equal, we also offer three different cleaning methods; Traditional Rotary Scrubber, Scrub Wand Steam Cleaning and RX-20 Rotary Steam Cleaning. Other carpet cleaning companies may only offer one method of cleaning your carpet, and they will try and convince you that there way is the best way. Since we offer multiple methods, we will recommend what we believe to be the best method for your carpet, but leave the choice up to you.
Why Should You Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned
Installing carpet in your home or business can be an expensive endeavor and most people will want to protect their investment and get the most life out of it that they can. How long your carpet last depends upon the care that your carpet receives. Like most anything else, if it is neglected, it may not last too long. If you maintain your carpet properly with routine vacuuming and periodic professional carpet cleaning, you should be able to extend the life of your carpet up to 15 years. Not only that, but you will always keep it looking its best and adhere to the carpet manufacturer's warranty. It will also help you to improve the air quality within your dwelling, since your carpet acts as a large air filter capturing dust, dirt particles and other contaminants that reside in the air within your home or business. Vacuuming alone is not enough to remove all of these, so hiring a professional carpet cleaning company for periodic cleaning is something that is highly recommended. In addition, The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), recommends that you have your carpet professionally deep cleaned every 12 to 18 months in order to keep it at peak performance.

The Choice Is Yours
Traditional Rotary Scrubber (Good)
This method provides for good agitation, but lacks extraction and can therefore over wet and damage carpet if the technician is not properly trained or does not have the proper experience. Though this method is not recommended in most cases, it may be the best option for specific carpet types in certain commercial carpet situations where the use of other methods is not possible.
Scrub Wand (Better)
This method provides for good extraction, but forward and backward cleaning action depends on manual labor, operator strength and endurance in order to receive consistent results each time. This is a better method than the Traditional Rotary Scrubber method mentioned above and can be very effective in most carpet cleaning situations.
RX-20 Rotary Cleaning System (Best)
This is the most effective method for cleaning your carpets and will usually produce the best results. It provides for the best agitation and extraction since the machine does all the hard work and it does not depend on manual labor, operator strength and endurance like the Scrub Wand method mentioned above. The revolutionary self-powered RX-20 consistently cleans all areas of the carpet every time, since the operator's physical strength is not an issue.
The RX-20 applies the power of 5 men simultaneously cleaning, returning carpet fibers to a like new fluffy condition. Five powerful cleaning heads rotate over the carpet, flushing and removing deeply embedded soil from all sides of the carpet fiber. It deep cleans your carpet using the a brushless, rotary cleaning action which restores your carpet's color and resiliency all in a one step process. This state-of-the-art device, along with the power and heat of the Boxxer™ 421 Truckmount offers unmatched cleaning ability that can clean even the dirtiest carpets restoring their natural beauty once again. If you are looking for the best possible results every time, the RX-20 Rotary Cleaning System is the way to go!
Once we have cleaned your carpet it is a good idea to protect it. We recommend Scotchgard™ Protector, this will help protect against both oil and water based stains. It will help your carpet stay cleaner longer and make it so stains release more easily when your carpet is cleaned again. Scotchgard™ Protector helps keep spills from becoming hard-to-remove spots or stains. It repels liquids, so spills can be blotted up quickly and easily. Spills blot up before they become stains and it is even effective against fruit drinks, soft drinks and frozen fruit treats! The best time to apply Scotchgard™ Protector is right after cleaning; Son Bright Systems can do it for you. Regular vacuuming and prompt cleanup of spills will help maintain the bright, freshly cleaned look for a long time. Be sure and ask about it when you have us clean your carpets!
If it stinks, we’ve got your solution! Unwanted odors in your home or business, may be coming from your carpet. Remember, your carpet is like a large air filter and can therefore retain unpleasant odors. Why not have Son Bright Systems apply a deodorizer to your carpet the next time you have us clean them. When you have us apply a carpet deodorizer, you can eliminate any unwanted odors and leave your house smelling fresh throughout. No matter if its pet odors, urine odors, smoke odors or any other kind of odor you are experiencing, we can eliminate it and help you breath a breath of fresh air once again.
