 Sometimes a carpet is so dirty and matted that it seems replacement is the only option. Before spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars to replace a carpet, give us a call to have us take a look. (Steps are shown below photos.)

How we remove grease from a carpet

The YuckBusters of Wentzville, MO may be able to remove the grease and grime from your carpet. Here is an example of a severely matted, greasy carpet. This is the dirtiest carpet we’ve ever cleaned.

Step 1: Evaluate the condition

If the carpet is actually damaged, or worn beyond the point where it is worth salvaging, we can discuss your options with you before proceeding. Assuming that there is a good amount of life left in the carpet that’s otherwise in good condition, we move to the next step:

Step 2: Pile Lifting

The first tool we use on tough jobs like this is our Certified Pile Lifter. The pile lifter gently brushes and vacuums with such powerful suction that the carpet fibers are lifted back into their upright position while being cleaned. This is the same equipment we use for high traffic areas in commercial buildings, which keeps those areas looking as good as the surrounding carpet for as long as possible.

Step 3 – Deep Cleaning, Raking and Drying

For this step, we use our power carpet washing system, followed by raking, then intensive drying. Not all carpet cleaning firms are equipped with the drying equipment needed to properly manage this step – some will leave your carpets (and the subfloor) completely soaked, possibly causing damage to your home.

Step 4 – Scotchgard

The final step is to apply ScotchGard to restore the carpet’s stain resistance.

Don’t give up on your carpet until it’s worn out! Let The Yuckbusters restore your carpets instead.
