Hot Water Extraction

Clawes Carpets & Flooring uses the Hot Water Extraction method for cleaning carpets. Research indicates that the hot water extraction system provides the best capability for cleaning. The process consists of applying a cleaning agent into the carpet pile and using water in the extractor to recover the used solution and soil. This is done from a truck-mounted unit outside the home with only the hose and wand brought inside or by a portable system brought into the home. Our cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet dries more quickly.

Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaning in Northern Virginia

Did You Know: Most all warranties from the leading carpet manufacturers such as Shaw and Mohawk require that the homeowner be able to show proof of periodic cleaning by hot water extraction by a professional cleaning service or do-it-yourself system. Check our Care and Warranty Guidelines for more information.

Our carpet cleaners are certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute.

What’s the difference between steam cleaning and hot water extraction?

People often confuse hot water extraction with steam cleaning and there is a big difference. Hot water extraction cleans deeply and effectively without damaging the carpet and the water is heated to 212 degrees. It is much more effective than steam cleaning as it gets the most amount of dirt and soil out.

What does our pricing include?

At Clawes Carpets & Flooring there are no hidden fees and we give a final quote before we begin. Our Carpet Cleaning price includes pre-treating areas with spots, moving furniture and WE GUARANTEE ALL WORK.

We give 10% off for carpet cleaning to Military and Senior Citizens.

How long before you can walk on the carpet again? 

Drying time is 8-24 hours. You can walk immediately on the carpet after the cleaning with rubber soled shoes. We put protective blocks under the furniture.

Tile Cleaning

In addition to Carpet Cleaning we offer tile cleaning with our Versa Pro Hydro Force Machine. It allows for deep scrubbing to get tough grim and dirt out of floors and grout.


I needed the carpet in my whole house cleaned. I contacted Clawes Carpets based on the recommendation of my daughter. The cleaning was scheduled four weeks in advance to accommodate my wife and my busy schedule. The two-man crew arrived at 1:00 PM and proceeded to pre-treat the more pronounced spots and tackle the very large job. The truck mounted steam machine made it look easy although it was a lot of work. The results were quite remarkable and my wife and I were very pleased. They took the time needed to do an excellent job and I recommend Clawes Carpet Cleaning without reservation.”

Fairfax, VA

I had them perform extensive carpet cleaning in my condo. It was a white carpet with no pet stains, but some ground-in stains. It was great. They were responsive on the phone, they were on time, and the price was fine.”

Herndon, VA

We contacted Clawes to replace the carpet on the whole upper 2 levels and to stretch and professionally clean the basement carpet. The quote we got from Roy was very competitive and the whole experience was a very pleasant one. The installers did a phenomenal job and arrived as promised despite the 14 inches of snow we got the previous day. The furniture was put back exactly as it was before and the installation and stretching/cleaning was done very beautifully. We are totally satisfied with Clawes Carpet and would highly recommend to everyone shopping for flooring installation for their homes.”
