One of many problems with soaps and detergents for carpet care is that they leave a soapy, sticky residue, which causes rapid re-soiling and particle loading. This results in quickly re-dirtied carpet and unhealthy indoor air quality.
Mean Green's method of cleaning your carpet is different! We only use professional, soap-free products which leave no oil or dirt-attracting residue found in soaps. We rinse only with pure hot water to leave carpets squeaky clean. In fact, our high velocity extraction method will extract any soap residue that was left behind from previous cleaners.
While soap-free products are extremely important in maintaining clean carpets, the main factor causing rapid re-soiling is the absence of a stain resistant coating, such as Scotchguard, on the carpet fibers. Most, if not all, new carpets leave the factory with a stain and soil resistant coating. Over time, this coating wears off because of general use, abrasive traffic, excessive dirt, and most of all deep cleaning. Every time you clean your carpets you can have Scotchguard reapplied to replenish and enhance your carpets soil-resisting coating to help it look cleaner longer. In fact, some carpet manufacturers require professional reapplication in order to maintain its warranty.
