Spring Clean Checklist: Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

By : Mister Kleen May 2, 2023 Comments off

Carpet cleaning services are often part of a spring clean checklist and for good reason. Floors are the largest horizontal surface in a building, and they can be a breeding ground for dust, allergens, and pathogens. 

While soft surfaces such as carpets and upholstery cannot be disinfected, they can be sanitized to reduce the spread of germs and contaminants. 

What are the CDC’s carpet cleaning recommendations?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention includes the following recommendations for safely cleaning soft surfaces such as carpets, upholstery, and drapes:

  • Clean the surface using a product containing soap, detergent, or other type of cleaner appropriate for use on these surfaces.
  • Vacuum surfaces such as carpets and rugs and dispose of the dirt safely.

Why use commercial carpet cleaning services? 

Commercial carpet and floor cleaning is a specialized industry that requires specific equipment and training. Commercial carpets and floors in public spaces are typically subjected to wear and tear, and it is important to use a commercial cleaning service that has the experience and expertise to clean them properly.

Mister Kleen is a certified member of The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC), the world’s most recognized certifying body for carpet cleaning accreditation. 

We work closely with our partners to customize a carpet cleaning program that will:

  • Remove spills with our spot treatment to prevent future carpet stains.
  • Improve indoor air quality and promote a healthier environment by extracting allergens such as mold, dust mites, and dander, along with hazardous bacteria that can potentially affect your health.
  • Prolong the longevity of your interior investments by utilizing our restorative and preventative maintenance methods, which will have your carpets looking and feeling fresh.

What upholstery cleaning services do you provide?

Mister Kleen’s upholstery cleaning services are aimed at fighting stains as well as removing allergens and bacteria that lead to better indoor air quality and a healthier environment.

Our professional upholstery cleaning program includes:

  • A thorough inspection by a trained Mister Kleen technician who will evaluate each piece of upholstery and develop a custom cleaning plan.
  • The use of professional equipment, once a plan is determined, effectively removes stains, restores color, and revives your upholstery.
  • A job completion survey that allows you to rate the service you received and ensures that we provide the best possible service for your upholstery needs.


Cleaning for Health and Appearance has become the standard in facility management, as businesses have become more aware of the importance of a clean and healthy environment for their employees and customers. 

Mister Kleen has been a leading provider of contract cleaning services to Commercial and High Security facilities since 1976. Our primary service area is the DC Metro region. We also provide a variety of interior and exterior specialty services. For more information, contact us at 703-719-6900.
