There is nothing better than having your wall-to-wall carpet professionally cleaned. It’s satisfying and promotes a feeling of wellbeing. 

But sometimes, you think:

What are you going to do to my carpet?

Fair enough. Here’s what happens.

Gallagher’s trained and talented technicians will first vacuum using a Hepa Filter Pro Team vacuuming system to pull dry particulates out of the carpet.

Next, a pre-stain formula is applied. Our technicians create a customized pre-stain formula specific to each stain situation. This formula helps break the chemical bonds between the stains and carpet fibers.

If necessary, a deodorizing and sanitizing agent is also applied to help restore carpet freshness by eliminating odor causing bacteria. 

Finally, your carpets are thoroughly rinsed and conditioned with filtered hot water from the HrydraMaster truck-mounted extraction system.

Has your carpet ever felt crunchy after a cleaning?

At Gallagher’s, we take the time to ensure that the your carpets are well-rinsed so they will feel soft and look beautiful. 

Now you may ask:

How long will it take for my carpet to dry? 

Great question. 

Drying times are based on humidity levels, so in the winter it’s about 6 to 8 hours. On a warm, dry summer day, that can fall to about 2 to 4 hours. You can also throw open the windows to increase air flow and help dry the carpets even faster!

Call Gallagher’s today at (503) 477-4097 to set up an appointment, and we’ll take care of the rest.
