A Safe, Cost-Effective Way to Get Your Floors Clean

Clean Carpet Care and Elite Carpet Cleaning technicians are not only trained to get dirt out of carpet, but they can clean and sanitize wood, concrete, tile, brick and other types of natural stone flooring.

Joseph DiBruno doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to describing his more than 30 years in the carpet-cleaning business.

“Our commitment today is the same as it was when we started,” he says. “We will always put customers first with integrity and quality service. And when you need us, we’ll be there.”

As the co-owner of two dedicated, hard working and well respected carpet cleaning companies — Clean Carpet Care and Elite Carpet Cleaning — Joseph has served thousands of new and repeat residential and commercial customers in the Albuquerque area since 1985.

Both companies specialize in reviving dirty wall-to-wall carpets, area rugs, tile, grout, cement and brick floors, upholstery and even drapes using a high heat, low humidity, truck-mounted steam cleaning system with state-of-the-art equipment. They also clean air ducts and dryer vents and work with the safest green products on the market today.

“For customers worried about harmful chemicals coming into their home, rest assured: All our products are 100 percent safe for the environment,” says Joseph. “Everything that we use is biodegradable and made out of natural products. We use environmentally friendly, citrus-based solvents with low residue. We were one of the first carpet-cleaning companies in town to go green, always keeping in mind the health, allergies and other complications that our customers might have. By going green and biodegradable, you’re making the home safe from contaminants in the air.”

Carpet cleaning is truly an art, explains Joseph, and the methods used by his highly trained technicians are proof of this. First, a carpet is thoroughly inspected so the technician can make the proper cleaning recommendations. Second, it is pre-sprayed with a solution that loosens dirt, with special attention to high-traffic areas. Third, the carpet is steam-cleaned; steam is used because it thoroughly cleans and sanitizes at just the right temperature for maximum cleaning effect. Finally, after the carpet goes through one more round of cleaning, the technician “dry strokes” the carpet, then rakes it, leaving the carpet damp, not wet, and allowing it to dry within hours rather than days.

Technicians for both companies can also perform those tasks on carpets that require a higher level of care, such as area rugs or carpets made from wool, which are brought to the company’s warehouse to be cleaned by hand. Special stains on carpets are given particular treatment — for instance, hard-to-remove pet stains are treated with an industrial enzyme.

Clean Carpet Care and Elite Carpet Cleaning also specialize in removing food and drink stains, including juice and red wine, says Joseph. And once a carpet is completely clean, technicians can treat it with a carpet protector — a special Dupont Teflon® product, as opposed to an after-market product.

“We have multiple crews, so that gives us the flexibility to do ‘call today — clean today’ so that we’re never overwhelmed with work,” says Joseph. “Clean Carpet Care has grown tremendously and I’ve had incredible luck with great technicians.”

Likewise, hardwood floors undergo cleaning and conditioning that is safe and effective. As a finishing touch, a gloss is applied to those surfaces to preserve their beauty and durability.

“Offering those types of services might cost us more money, but we prefer a happy repeat customer who will come back than a customer who we created a problem for just to save money,” says Joseph.

Joseph says he and Lisa love working with customers. “We strive to provide the most personal care possible,” he explains.

“Customers also like to compliment us on the cleanliness of our vans, the good appearance of our technicians and how careful we are inside their homes,” Joseph adds. “For example, we might be the only carpet cleaning companies in town that require their technicians to clean their hoses after every job so that they’r ready for the next job. Every day we want to expand our customer base and provide service in the best possible way and we have enough crews to do it so we can accommodate customers in a timely manner.”

Joseph recommends that customers get their carpets cleaned at least once or twice a year, depending on how much foot traffic they experience. He notes that Elite Carpet Cleaning and Clean Carpet Care technicians are qualified to correctly clean micro-fiber upholstery and precious Oriental, Navajo, wool and other high-end specialty area rugs.

Both companies are fully insured and bonded and maintain an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. They offer free estimates and online price quotes, a user-friendly mobile app, and specialize in emergency same-day cleaning services.

“Since 1985 we have been serving residents and business owners in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Corrales, and the surrounding area with complete carpet and floor cleaning, upholstery cleaning, duct cleaning, and more,” says Joseph. “You’ve seen our trucks with Bubbleman around town for years. And with such a high demand for our expertise, we’d like to thank our community and local supporters for their trust in opening their doors to our teams. We guarantee satisfaction and will go above and beyond to ensure that you are completely happy with your service.” For quality carpet cleaning, call Joseph at 292-1611 or Lisa at 881-6676.
