Recommended Green Carpet Cleaning Service in Portland


Because of our reputation for the highest quality cleaning using the safest most nontoxic products we get asked whom we recommend for this that and the other all the time.

“Do you know a good upholsterer?” “Know of a good cat sitter?” “How do I get silly putty out of my carpets?

Know a green carpet cleaning company?

While before I could not say I could vouch for any particular company, I can now say that we recommend Gallagher’s Carpet Cleaning.

I recently had them clean one of my mom’s rugs that had been in the living room for 15 years. It had never been cleaned in its life. It was not too bad (could have been worse) because there aren’t any pets in the house, but my dad does wear his shoes in the house sometimes.

If you do happen to have pets, Gallagher’s is the place to go because they have these giant, shallow swimming pool like thingers where they can soak the rug and wash all the weirdness out.

Extraction alone wouldn’t cut it I do not think… Here’s a picture I took on my phone. As you can see I have no photographic taste or style, and my phone is old, and the lens is covered in dirt. However, hey… I tried.

What you may be able to see if you squint really hard are little rivers of yellow flowing from the rugs to the drain.

That is urine. This is why if you have pets that just can’t hold it or make it in the litter box, Gallagher’s are the people you want to do business with. Once you see just how much urine can be stored in a rug, a Rug Doctor ain’t gonna cut it.

They have got a great location. It is way bigger than I thought it was going to be.

Here is their drying rack…

The rugs that are rolled up are clean. They keep clean rugs entirely separate from dirty rugs, so there isn’t any weird cootie sharing or cross-contamination. That is a detail that I think people should really appreciate. Because the last thing you want to do is bring home something sketchy like someone else’s bed bugs.

So kudos to Gallagher’s Green Carpet Cleaning Service.

They use high quality, green carpet cleaning solutions. If you want to know the details and nitty-gritty of what they use, you can ask them directly. That detail was in and then quickly out of my brain.

What I do know is that when we got my mom’s rug back (which took less time than I originally expected), it did not smell of anything. Just a wool rug. It did not feel weird either.

I mean it felt different, but I think that is because it was clean and things feel different when there isn’t a layer of dirt on them.

Here is the “before” picture:

Looks pretty brown, huh?

Here is the “after” picture:

Yeah. Now that is a difference!

We do not have carpet in our home, and I have not scheduled a quote for their wood floor cleaning yet. Otherwise, I would have them out to clean those as well so I can only speak for their customer service (primo!) and drop-off rug cleaning.

However, in my experience, excellent customer service usually goes hand-in-hand with quality and results. Check out their reviews if you do not believe me.

So if you are looking for a recommended green carpet cleaning service, Clean Affinity recommends Gallagher’s Carpet Cleaning if you are looking for a green carpet cleaning service.

They are at 826 SE Belmont St. Portland, OR 97214 and you can drop off your rug anytime during business hours… they are also open on Saturdays!
