WILL GETTING MY CARPETS CLEANED MAKE MY CARPET DIRTIER FASTER?
“No” TruClean rinses all residue from your carpet with our high powered truck mounted systems which use 250+ degree steam. This leaves your carpets residue free. Many carpet cleaning companies are leaving a chemical residue because they do not rinse your carpets properly which caused carpet to collect dirt. Its like shampooing your hair and not rinsing it out with water. TruClean has IICRC certification and uses certified Techs.

It has a pleasant, fresh smell for instant odor control. This product is 100% safe for pet and human contact.
DOES GROUT SEALER WORK? (Ceramic or Porcelain Grout)
Maybe for a little while. Grout lines are porous and will take in the dirt. It makes sense to seal them for protection against soil penetration. The issue we as a company are coming across is that the seal does not last and is easily broken with normal wear and tear and cleaning chemicals. If it is not sealed correctly, which 95% of the time it is not, dirt and grease will slip through the side of the grout lines and now you have sealed dirt. Tile and grout cleaners use sealing as an upsell marketing tool for them to make more money. If they wont be honest we will. DO NOT USE SEALER ON YOUR GROUT LINES, LEAVE THEM IN THEIR NATURAL STATE!.
