Orange Carpet Cleaning
In our ten years of experience, we have found that some traditional methods of carpet cleaning actually end up doing more harm than good to your home over time. Dry cleaning tends to leave your carpets soaked with excessive moisture, which provide an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens that you would never want in your home. High pressure extraction and steam cleaning use highly acidic solution that do damage to the individual hairs of your carpets, and are applied with rough, unforgiving tools that can tear or shred your floors.
Because of that, Afterglow Floor Care Services offers only Zero Residue Cleaning. This process is similar to washing and drying cycle you use when washing your clothes every day, except we incorporate our industrial generator. In the first step of Zero Residue cleaning we use our mobile heating generator to heat water to over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and apply the heated water to your carpeting with a combination of safe, environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. Your floor is then rinsed a second time with pure hot water, and then fully dried. This method has proven to be the safest, most effective method of cleaning carpets, and always leaves our customers satisfied with the results.

Vinyl Floor Waxing
Our vinyl floor waxing process is equally effective for floors in homes, office buildings, commercial businesses, and industrial buildings. We begin with a process known as stripping, where we remove the outer layer of wax covering your floor. This layer creates a barrier between the floor and those walking on it, and because of that receives the most abuse as a result of the dust, dirt, and other organic material that is dragged and scraped along its surface as a result of heavy traffic.
This outer layer is removed, and then cleaned up and disposed of according to EPA standards. After your vinyl floor has been stripped, your Afterglow Floor Care Services professional will apply between 1 and 4 new layers of wax to your floor, then finish the process with sealing, making your floors sparkle and shine and continue to stay that way for an extended period of time. Our waxing methods are more fully explained in the Vinyl Floor Waxing section of our website.
Wood Floor Waxing
Wood floors make for a beautiful addition to any home, and add a sense of class and elegance that is unmatched by any other surfacing. But with the passing of time and continual use, they begin to dull and fade, requiring professional maintenance to restore them to their original charm.
Our floor care specialists are able to offer our clients hardwood floor buffing and waxing services. When waxing, we will remove the upper most layer of wax, clearing away all scrapes, stains, etches, and imperfections in the wood, then apply a fresh coat of wax to make your floors shine like new again.
We also provide hardwood floor buffing, which uses a gentle buffing pad and a pH solution appropriate for the grain and texture of your floor. Our cleaning pads are constantly changed and never reused, meaning your floors are always treated with the utmost care.
In addition to residential hardwood floor buffing and waxing, Afterglow Floor Care Services provides commercial and industrial wood floor buffing and waxing. For more information on the floor care services offered to our valued Orange customer, please visit the Hardwood Floor Waxing page
Tile and Grout Steam Cleaning
Tile is an optimal surfacing for bathrooms and kitchens because it not only comes in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and styles, but it is remarkably simple to maintain. Unfortunately the grout bonding the tiles together is notoriously difficult to keep clean with its porous cracks and gritty surface. If not professionally cleaned on a regular basis, grout tends to become a magnet for unwanted substances like dirt, mold, mildew, and bacteria.
In order to ensure your tile and grout is thoroughly clean, Afterglow Floor Care Services uses a mobile heating generator which can heat water to a staggering 750,000 BTUs, as compared to most generators which only reach 100,000 BTUS. This heating source is attached to a steam cleaner, which your floor care expert will use to go over your tile and grout surface with extreme heat, eliminating all germs and bacteria.
For a more in depth explanation of the floor cleaning process offered to our Orange customers, please check out our Tile and Grout Cleaning page.
In addition to your flooring, your upholstery receives the most use of any surface or area in your home. Family members relax and spend time with each other on your couch, and rest their heads on its pillows. Everyone has a favorite easy chair that they look forward to sitting in after a long day at work. Because of these items heavy use and the nature of the materials they are made of, they tend to gather large amounts of dust and dirt, and can accumulate bacteria and germs.
In order to keep your favorite couches, chairs, and cushions clean, Afterglow Floor Care Services offers professional grade upholstery cleaning services. These areas are generally made of the same materials which make up your carpeting and rugs, so our upholstery cleaning process is very similar to our carpet cleaning process.
Your cleaning professional uses a thorough three phase method to remove all dirt, stains, bacteria, and odors from your belongings. We begin by doing a surface leveling cleaning, removing all dirt and debris sitting loosely on the couch cushions or surface of your chairs. Next is a more thorough deep cleaning, where all of the debris hidden deep in your upholstery is removed, as well as the bacteria and germs clinging stubbornly to the individual hairs of your sofa. We finish with a deodorizing spray, which kills germs at the source and provides a protective barrier between your belongings and any pathogens looking to make their home in them.

Marble, Limestone, Slate, and Travertine Polishing
With our ten years of experience maintaining and revitalizing all types of residential and commercial stone products, Afterglow Floor Care Services has a unique appreciation and understanding of the very specific methods required to bring your various stone surfaces back to life. Whether you’re dealing with chips, crack, etching, or just in need of a good polish, we have the tools and experience necessary to get the job done correctly.
Even though marble is a very sturdy, hard stone, there are still a variety of issues that it can have. Marble counter tops are often used in the kitchen, and because of their heavy amount of use they can chip and etch. Cooking products like oils are often left on its surface too long without being cleaned up, and can seep into the pores causing discoloration and dulling. Marble cleaning agents sold in store often times ended up harming your surfaces with prolonged use. Marble walls in showers absorb shampoos and soap, and we often find them cleaned with traditional cleaning products which cause the surfaces to lose their luster. Regardless of the the location of the issue, Afterglow Carpet Cleaning Services is able to restore and revitalize your surfaces, making them look as bright and healthy as the day they were installed.
Limestone is used in many of the same areas of the home as marble, but unlike marble this sedimentary rock is found in a very wide range of densities, textures, and levels of rigidity. Because of its varying composition, it is important to have it professional cleaned and polished at least once a year.
In addition to limestone, slate comes in a varying degree of compositions and looks. Brazilian Slate, Vermont Slate, Chinese Slate, and Indian Slate, are some of the most common types found in homes, and we are prepared and experienced in dealing with all of these slate compositions. In addition to the origin of the stone, slate comes in two distinct settings, gauged or ungauged. Gauged slate has been cut into exact specifications, while ungauged slate is more organic and less honed. We offer slate polishing and restoration services, and have experience with all varieties of origin and both gauged and ungauged varieties.
Lastly, travertine is a common surface used in many areas of the home, and is distinctive in its look and appearance when compared to marble, limestone and slate. Because it is common to have unfilled travertine, which comes in its organic form without having the large pores in its surface artificially covered, it can often gather dirt and bacteria. Travertine can also become chipped in its unfilled areas, and require filling or repair.
