Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning

Our primary cleaning method is very low moisture (VLM) encapsulation. It uses a fraction of the water truck mounts use and it cleans just as well. By using top of the line detergents, the bond between the dirt and carpets is broken and the dirt and moisture is absorbed into cotton pads.

No harmful chemicals

Green Living Floor Care has eliminated all of the noxious chemicals, which are so prevalent in the cleaning industry. This benefits you by improving your homes indoor air quality. Green Living Floor Care uses all BIO-BASED cleaning products. That is, they are manufactured from various fruit, vegetable, and aquatic sources, which are safer for you and the environment.

We are Green

Our system uses 10 times less water than hot water extraction methods. No toxic chemicals are needed for this system. We use cotton polyester pads that only need to be washed and not dried. Our pads can be used about 100 times before needing replacement. Because the system is low moisture, no fans are needed for drying.

Local & Reliable

We are a local Central Maine company, and as such, customers are number one. We rely greatly on your feedback and word of mouth to continue growing and being successful. Unlike some of the national guys, we don’t make appointments we can’t keep. We do the job right the first time.

Why US

Green Living Floor Care is not just another carpet cleaning company

We take pride in educating, cleaning, and leaving you with great looking carpets, while using cleaning agents that are safer for you, your carpet, and the environment.

Green Living Floor Care uses a unique low moisture, 6 step carpet cleaning system. The primary machine used is the Hruby Orbital System (HOS) Orbot. The machine moves side to side & up and down, while rotating at 1750 RPMs. The oscillating motion pulls dirt that is deep in the carpet. We use cotton polyester pads, which scrubs all sides and tops of the carpet fibers. This is the most effective way to remove stubborn stains and dirty areas.

The HOS system supports a healthy indoor environment. Carpets will simply be clean, vibrant in color, and dry in about 45 minutes. The system will eliminate the most common problems caused by other cleaning methods that lead to mold growth, mildew, volatile organic compounds (VOC), recurring stains, and safety hazards.

HOS’ unique low-moisture system prevents over-wetting carpets. Over-wet carpets require longer drying times. People walking from a wet carpet directly onto a hard-surface floor can slip or fall. The use of cheap detergents and overwetting can lead to rapid re-soiling. This is because the cheap chemicals and moisture act as a magnet, pulling dirt into the carpet fibers.

A greater concern, the long drying time increases the likelihood that mold and mildew will develop, seriously jeopardizing indoor air quality and potentially harming occupant health. With longer drying times, and if traditional carpet cleaning chemicals are used, there is a greater possibility that gases and volatile organic compounds will be released into the air. This can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems, especially for young children and the elderly.
