My name is Greg Wurster and I’ve been carpet cleaning in Albuquerque for 30 years. I use an unique method to scrub your carpets clean and since it’s low moisture, your carpets will be dry in an hour. I’m also the owner, so you can be assured that I will give your carpets all the attention they deserve. I will be on time and take great care around your furnishings. My prices start at $100, tax is included. It’s easy to schedule a cleaning. Just click the scheduling button at the top of the screen and in a few minutes you’ll be done.
I’ve been cleaning commercially since I was 16 and working at my high school in Maryland. I moved to New Mexico in 1985. I continued cleaning while I studied for my computer science degree but I liked the idea of working for myself so in 1989 I started my first cleaning business. Throughout the years I started and stopped several small businesses. Greg’s Carpet Cleaning is my fourth. I’m now at that point in my life that I would rather clean myself instead of hiring and training someone else. This is something I enjoy and seeing the before and after that comes from cleaning something dirty never gets old.
I clean carpets using a process called encapsulation. The 2 main benefits are fast drying times, due to its low water usage and cleaner carpets due to the agitation used to break up dirt and spills. I firmly believe that if you aren’t scrubbing, you aren’t cleaning.
I start the process by spraying a pre-spray cleaner on the traffic lanes and spots. My cleaner is oxygen based and starts to work immediately breaking down any organic soils. I apply a pet odor neutralizer if needed at this time. Then I start to scrub the carpet with an orbital buffer spraying a commercial encapsulation soap as I go. This soap is pH neutral so as not to react to any leftover cleaners present in the carpet. I scrub the carpet with 2 different types of cleaning pads. The first is a microfiber pad that breaks up the dirt and works the soap into the fibers. The second is a cotton pad that is very absorbent and absorbs the excess water and all the soap and dirt. These pads get very dirty and wet and are changed out often throughout the process. During this time I treat any spill that hasn’t come clean with the appropriate spotter. I finish by vacuuming. The agitation from the buffer brings out all the ground-in pet hair and debris and leaves it on the surface of the fibers so a final vacuuming is a must. At this point the carpet is clean, smells fresh and is lightly damp.
