WHC Hot Water Extraction (HWE) Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning & Mattress Cleaning

At Wave House Cleaning, we specialize in Hot Water Extraction (HWE) services for carpet, upholstery, and mattress cleaning. Here's what you can expect from our HWE cleaning process.

Hot Water Extraction for Carpet & Upholstery

  • Exclusive to residents in California.

  • Very hot water, sometimes with a cleaning agent, is applied at high pressure using water-jet nozzles.

  • A grooming tool agitates carpet fibers, effectively dissolving dirt.

  • Simultaneously, the carpet is rinsed with hot water, and water is suctioned back up with an extraction wand.


  • Heat can impact natural fiber carpets like wool or velvet; therefore, efficient water extraction and sufficient drying time are vital to prevent mold growth.

  • Recognized as the best treatment for pet stains and odors; follows a four-step professional process endorsed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification.

Cost Factors

  • The cost varies based on carpet loops and tightness, with Berber being the easiest and most cost-effective to clean.

  • Cotton and wool carpets may incur additional costs.

Mattress Cleaning

  • Similar to furniture cleaning, mattresses act as air filters, trapping odors, dirt, and allergens.

  • An average used mattress can harbor anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites.

  • For the 76 million Americans suffering from asthma and/or allergies, the presence of dust mites can trigger symptoms due to their common presence in household allergens.

WHC Approach to Mattress Cleaning

  • Proudly offering mattress cleaning, commonly known as steam cleaning.

  • Utilizing hot water extraction to clean mattresses, ensuring temperatures above 70 degrees to effectively eliminate dust mites and contaminants.

  • Employing gentle, neutral cleaning agents that are tough on dirt yet harmless to the environment, ensuring the safety of your family and pets who spend time on the mattress surface.
