Residential Carpet Cleaning

The carpeting in your home requires regular care and maintenance to ensure it continues to perform and looks great for a long time. Regular cleaning is the most important thing you can do to keep your carpets clean and healthy, and waiting too long to have your carpets professionally cleaned can cause unnecessary wear and soiling.

GM Services has been cleaning carpets in Ocean and Monmouth County since the 1970s. Our powerful, truck-mounted cleaning system will leave your carpets fresh and clean, with no sticky residue left behind. We have been trained by the IICRC and tested on our knowledge and abilities so you can be confident that we’ll provide the highest quality cleaning care for your carpet.

You Deserve Dependable and Expert Care for Your Carpet

Experienced Team

With 45 years of experience cleaning carpets and serving homeowners in Ocean and Monmouth Counties, you can feel confident knowing you’re getting the best.

Reliable Service

Not all carpet cleaning companies are the same, and you’ll get what you pay for. We guarantee high-quality results, reliable service, and professional care.

Protect Your Carpet

We want your carpet to last a long time, and offer 3M Scotchgard™ applications to keep your carpets cleaner longer and to protect against spills.

Our Carpet Cleaning Process

When it comes to carpet cleaning, you may think that all carpet cleaning companies are the same, but that isn’t true. You can’t expect to receive the same results from a budget carpet cleaner as someone who will take the time to thoroughly clean your carpets.

At GM Services, we use a powerful truck-mounted carpet cleaning unit and offer hot water extraction cleaning. There’s no bulky equipment to maneuver into your home – just two hoses that deliver very high pressure and hot water to blast away the dirt and soils trapped in your carpet fibers. Mixed with a soapy pretreatment to break down any greasy dirt, oil, or spills we agitate and extract the dirt away. The hot water or “steam” also kills bacteria and germs, providing a healthy home and carpet for you to walk on.

The dirty water is removed using high-powered extraction, leaving your carpets only slightly damp. We also offer “dry” bonnet cleaning and shampoo, if desired.

Step 1: Inspection

Before we begin, we will do a thorough review of ALL your concerns. We’ll provide honest and upfront expectations based on your concerns and the condition of your carpets.​

Step 2: Pre-Treat

We pre-spot any major spills and stains. With our thorough knowledge and 45 years of experience, we know what works. We will also pre-spray soiled traffic areas.

Step 3: Clean

We use very high pressure, hot temperature water, and the most powerful vacuum available to clean your carpets.

Step 4: Groom

We thoroughly brush up or rake all carpets to set the pile standing up and improve fast drying.

Step 5: Deodorize & Protect

If desired, we offer additional services, such as Odor Removal and 3M Scotchgard™ Protectant.

Step 6: Dry

Your carpets will be slightly damp and will dry in 2-4 hours. We place furniture cards and foam blocks under the legs to prevent rust or furniture stains. Please leave them for at least 24 hours. We also strongly recommend that you only wear clean, white socks for walking on the carpet during the drying period.

What to Expect and How to Prepare for Our Visit

We offer FREE Estimates for all of our services, many by phone. We’ll take the time to thoroughly explain different cleaning methods and procedures during the initial call so you can feel confident making an informed decision.

After scheduling your service, we encourage you to write down your appointment on a calendar with the individual’s name you spoke to, and our phone number: 732-702-5388. We will call 1 week in advance to confirm the appointment, review the work, and our mutual expectations. Often we play “phone tag” but we do request your return our phone call.

We will also call the day before your appointment and at least 1 hour before our arrival so you know what time we will arrive. Our cleaning technicians will be in company uniforms and jackets that are clearly labeled. We drive company vans that are also clearly labeled.

Before we arrive:

Please make sure we will be able to access the nearest exterior door to the area being cleaned. If you need to remove cars from your driveway, please do this prior to our arrival.

If you live in a gated community, please call in advance and let security know that you are expecting “GM Services.”

If you have pets, please remove them to a room not being cleaned, a neighbor, or secured in a kennel or carrier. We will be opening and closing doors and want to be sure your pets are kept safe. We are not responsible for a runaway cat or dog.

If any furniture is to be moved by our crews, please remove ALL items from the tops of the furniture. We cannot move any furniture with items on or in them.

What to do after we leave:

We recommend that you wear white socks only to walk on any carpet after cleaning. No shoes, slippers, or colored socks. Please limit this walking for 2-4 hours until carpets are completely dry.

Promote air circulation to promote drying! Turn on all ceiling fans, window fans, etc. Open windows, if possible. Turn up the heat in the winter, or turn down the air conditioner in the summer.

We ask you to leave any furniture cards or blocks under your furniture for 24 hours after cleaning. These prevent rust or furniture stains on your carpet.

Give a thorough vacuuming the following day. You cannot vacuum too often! It helps set the pile, and in sandy Ocean and Monmouth County, it removes any churned-up sand.

Tell your friends and neighbors! Feel free to brag about your clean carpets and the fantastic service you received from GM Services.

Spotting Tips

Always feel free to call us anytime for expert advice on spot removal. All our personnel are certified “spotting” experts and have a thorough understanding of the causes of your spots. We know how to proceed with solvent, sour, and alkaline cleaning to remove those strange, persistent stains.

If you have a spot you cannot remove, we offer spot removal services. We do require a minimum service call fee for our time and effort, but if we cannot get it out, the spot is not removable! The vast majority of spots are removed though, and we love the challenge.

If a spot cannot be cleaned, it can still be removed if it is large, noticeable, or bothersome. Carpeting is the most forgiving of all floor coverings and an area with a spot/stain can be removed and replaced using spare carpet pieces or from a closet. Learn more about our Carpet Repair Services.
