Welcome to Brian Gerwels Carpet Cleaning

Welcome to Elkhart Carpet Cleaning. I'm a carpet cleaner in Elkhart, Indiana. I also service Goshen, Indiana and Bristol, Indiana.

Did you know that studies have found that carpet can actually help remove dust and allergens from the air? Your carpet acts like a big air filter trapping dust and dirt in it's fibers. This means that the air you breath is cleaner, but it also means your carpet needs to be regularly clean both by regular vacuuming and by professional carpet cleaning.

Did you know that many major carpet manufactures require that you have regular professional carpet cleanings? Failure to do so can void your warranty. Some manufactures require your carpets to be cleaned once every two years at minimum. Some require that you have your carpets cleaned every year.

Did you know that regular cleaning can help prolong the life of your carpet? When dirt gets trapped in your carpet it acts like sand paper and causes your carpet to wear out more quickly.

Which carpet cleaning method should you use?
While there are several types of cleaning methods available, most major manufactures recommend hot water extraction. Hot water extraction is sometimes called steam cleaning. The basic procedure is to spray a detergent on the carpet and rinse it off with hot water and a powerful vacuum.

Some people choose to rent or buy a machine and do it themselves. While these machines will remove more dirt then a regular vacuum cleaner, they just don't have the power professional equipment has. Another problem with these machines is that they can leave a soapy residue in your carpet which acts like a dirt magnet. If you've used one of these machines in the past, you really own it to yourself to give a professional carpet cleaner a try. I think you'll be surprised at how much of a difference there is with professional equipment.
