Hi, my name is David Randolph and I’m been providing cleaning services in and around Rapid City since 1981. As the owner I do the all work with personal service values & pride. I specialize in Area Rugs and Tile & Grout.

Ever wonder if you got a good cleaning job? Did your last carpet cleaning only take as much time as it does to thoroughly vacuum the carpet? Soil that has built up in carpet or on furniture over months or even years cannot be removed in seconds. Rather, several minutes of chemical contact with soil – called “dwell time” – is required for complete soil suspension and removal to be accomplished. I never rush through a job.

It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little.

When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because your purchase didn’t satisfy your wants or needs. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run.  And if you do that, you will have enough for something better.

One must remember this is a service not an item (e.g. the same Sony HDTV at different stores.) Care Rite is a local professional textile cleaning and protection company where the owner does all the work with personal service values and pride, something not offered by national chain company employees or employees in general. In a nut shell pardon the pun, when you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

Whenever you need thorough carpet cleaning not just some splash and dash or wet and jet job, that is just getting the dust and dirt off the surface, call 343-2160. I’m very picky, more so than my clients. I’ll do my best to make your furnishings like new again, using my 30 years of experience as a professional textile cleaner.

I will provide the kind of exceptionally thorough personal service you deserve. In fact, that’s exactly what I have become known for: Exceptionally Thorough Personal Service, One Client at a Time.

The easiest way to improve indoor air quality is to clean the items that trap the allergens and bacteria.

“Based on available science, carpet does not cause asthma or allergies and does not increase the incidence or severity of asthma or allergies symptoms. In fact…multiple studies have reported fewer allergy and asthma symptoms associated with carpet.”

  1.  Dry Soil Removal – Thorough dry vacuuming.
  2.  Soil Suspension (Separation) Principle – The purpose of this critical step is to separate soil from the surfaces of the fibers and yarn systems in preparation for its eventual removal or extraction. Maximum soil suspension incorporates four fundamentals, each of which facilitates soil removal

    The fundamentals involved in soil suspension are:

    a. Chemical action – This fundamental refers to the use of biodegradable detergents, builders and/or selected dry solvents designed to suspend, emulsify, and saponify, etc., the various soluble and insoluble soils commonly found in residential or commercial carpets. Cleaning solutions are chosen and then specifically formulated to each fabric type and each cleaning need.

    b. Heat or Temperature – Increasing temperature accelerates any chemical reaction thereby causing cleaning agents to function more efficiently. Truck mount extraction systems produce the best heat.

    c. Agitation – Agitation provides even distribution of cleaning agents among carpet yarns, thereby enhancing soil suspension. Rotary Jet Steam Extractors provide the agitation instead of the technician using a scrub wand, which may cause poor results because of more operator fatigue.

    d. Time – Soil that has built up in carpet over months or even years cannot be suspended in seconds. Rather, several minutes of chemical contact with soil – called “dwell time” – is required for complete soil suspension to be accomplished.

  3. Soil Extraction (Removal) Principle – Once soils have been suspended as uniformly as possible, they must be physically removed from the carpet.  Here again Rotary Jet Steam Extractors are very beneficial to this step. Assuring the fabric is left in a neutral to low ph state is also very important to prevent rapid re-soiling.
  4. Drying Principle – The cleaning job is not complete until provisions are made to return the carpet to its intended use within 1-24 hours.  Failure to implement drying procedures could result in a variety of problems such as: rapid re-soiling, odor, microorganism development, and ultimately, lamination and dye problems.  With the use of TURBO DRYER FANS, rapid drying is achieved.
