The Sears brand is among the most recognized and valuable in the world and such name recall applies to all of its services. This is true for the Sears Home Services, the division that specializes in a wide range of services for the residential and commercial sectors. The popularity of the brand also lies in the reasonable prices of its products and services – and it also applies to the Sears carpet cleaning prices.

Sears Home Services, the division that provides carpet, upholstery and tile and grout cleaning services, is a division of Sears, Roebuck and Company. As its name implies, its areas of specialization are in appliance repair, HVAC services, and lawn and garden services, among other home services.
Emphasis must be made that franchised locations bearing the Sears Home Services name are independently owned and operated. Customers, nonetheless, have the assurance of reliability of results and reasonable prices from all locations. But there will be variations in the available services, hours of operations, and coupons and promotions offered by each location.
Sears, Roebuck and Company is actually a merger of two companies – one founded by Richard Warren Sears in 1892 and the other by Alvah Curtis Roebuck in 1906. The company started as a mail order catalog operation and followed by the retail locations beginning in 1925; the first Sears opened in Evansville, Indiana. While its first headquarters was in the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois, its present headquarters are in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
Sears was once the largest chain of department stores in terms of revenue in the United States until 1989; Walmart has since become the largest retailer in the country. But it’s still among the largest retailers ranked #23 overall, as well as among the most trusted brands.
Nowadays, Sears is owned by Kmart after its acquisition in 2005. Kmart management created a holding company, known as Sears Holdings, after the merger.
Keep in mind that every Sears Home Services franchised location has its menu of services. The following services are the core services but there may be other services offered so be sure to ask for a complete menu. The prices will vary, too, depending on several factors including the geographical location, scope of work required, and number of personnel necessary for the job.
Such is the popularity of Sears’ carpet cleaning services that more than 500 households call its franchised locations nationwide for such services! There are three reasons for its enduring popularity – professionally trained technicians, convenient scheduling, and two-step deep clean process – and we have to add, the Sears brand itself is known for reliability.
The professional technicians are well-trained in all aspects of carpet cleaning, from the proper use of tools to the proper choice in techniques. The customers also like that they are courteous, prompt, and trustworthy. The office staff, furthermore, ensures that the schedules for carpet cleaning are made according to the customers’ convenience and preference.
The two-step deep clean process is among the most effective and efficient in the industry, too. In the first step, a heated carpet cleaning solution will be sprayed into the carpet so that the embedded dust, dirt and detritus can be more easily removed. In the second step, a powerful extraction rinse with the right pH balance will be applied on the carpet, which will remove both the embedded detritus and cleaning solution.
The result: Your carpet will look cleaner and smell fresher so much so that you may want to lie down on it just to enjoy the feeling! Don’t worry about allergies from chemicals as Sears only uses non-toxic carpet cleaning products. Sears also doesn’t use optical brighteners that can damage the carpet’s fibers.
Carpet protectors and deodorizers are also available upon request.
Upholstery and furniture cleaning
The Sears technicians, who have been trained, checked in their backgrounds, and insured, also use a two-step cleaning process for the upholstery cleaning services. For interested individuals, there’s also Sears UltraCare cleaning services, a more sophisticated cleaning process.
As in carpet cleaning, the process of cleaning upholstery also includes the application of a heated cleaning solution to the upholstered surface to loosen and lift the buildup of dirt. Then, it’s followed by a fiber rinse that will remove the dirt and cleaning solution. The upholstered furniture will be so clean that it will look and feel brand-new.
You can request the technicians to apply the Sears UltraCare FourGuard Carpet and Upholstery Protector; extra fees apply. The protector will provide a protective barrier against the buildup of dirt and dust, among others, over the upholstered surface. Think of it as a way to extend the life of your furniture and, thus, get more value from it.
In case of stubborn stains, the Sears technicians will exert extra effort to remove as much of its as possible without damaging the upholstery itself. You can trust them, too, with all types of upholstery from leather to suede, and from the common to the fragile, because of their extensive training.
Tile and grout cleaning
Tiles are favorite materials in bathrooms, kitchens and living areas because of their durability and beauty. But these can still become dull and dirty, especially the grout lines, over time even with regular mopping and scrubbing. In fact, do-it-yourself cleaning can worsen the grime buildup in the grout lines because the moisture seeps into the material.
The Sears technicians, fortunately, can remove the grime buildup and restore the glossy appearance of the tiles and their grout lines! There are no hard scrubbing and mopping involved since the technicians use specialized tools, techniques and products to achieve the desired results.
Sears also offers clear grout sealing services at a nominal cost. The transparent grout sealant applied serves as a protective barrier for the grout lines so that quick grime buildup can be prevented. This will also reduce the frequency of professional cleaning necessary so the extra cost for the added service will be well worth it.
In all cases of carpet, upholstery, and tile and grout cleaning services, every Sears Home Services location offers free cost estimates for each service. You can then decide whether to proceed with the service or not, as well as negotiate the price, if necessary.
Keep in mind, however, that the cost estimate may be different than the actual bill for many reasons. You may have requested for extra services, for example, which will be reflected on the itemized bill. You have the assurance, nonetheless, that Sears doesn’t impose hidden charges on its bill.
Emergency water removal and flood cleanup
Natural and manmade floods, major water leaks in the building, and broken aquariums are just a few instances when the Sears’ emergency water removal and flood cleanup services are welcome. While do-it-yourself water cleanups may suffice for minor spills, professional cleanup crews are a must for other cases, especially when the structural integrity of the building is under threat.
The Sears water cleanup crew will arrive at your home or office as soon as you give the go signal. Time being of the essence in water damage prevention, you should call the nearest Sears Home Services location as soon as the flood happens or after it recedes. You will be instructed about the preliminary steps to minimize the damage before the crew arrives.
The water cleanup process can be briefly described as follows:
- The quick initial situational assessment is a must since the technicians’ observations will be instrumental in the formulation of the action plan.
- The cost estimate will be made and agreed on by the head technician and property owner before the cleanup work can begin.
- The technicians immediately remove the standing water from the affected area, extract excess water from the padding and carpeting, and apply an antimicrobial solution to the affected areas (i.e., for prevention of bacterial growth). They will also use dehumidifiers and dryers to speed up drying.
Sears also assures its customers that every nook and cranny of the affected area will be dry after its technicians are done with the water cleanup. Even a small pocket of moisture can still damage the structure.
Wood floor cleaning
The hardwood floor cleaning process consists of six steps described briefly below:
- The technicians will conduct a thorough inspection and assessment of your hardwood floors, as well as scan the room for problem areas requiring extra attention.
- The technicians vacuum the floors so that surface dust, dirt and particles can be removed.
- The technicians use high-powered cleaning tools and solutions in loosening the dirt, removing the residues, and extracting any remaining debris deep within the floorboards. The dislodged detritus are then vacuumed.
- The technicians hand-clean the floors, usually with microfiber cloths to reach hard-to-reach areas like corners, edges and crannies.
- The technicians apply a neutralizing solution on the floor for a second cleaning and for giving the floors a shiny finish.
- The technicians conduct a final inspection to ensure that, indeed, the floors have been thoroughly cleaned.
You can also request for the application of a top coat finish refresher.
Air duct cleaning
Air ducts accumulate dust, dirt and other debris as well as allergens throughout the year. Since air ducts are the pathways through which warm and cool air circulate throughout the building, these are also the places where bacteria, viruses and fungi can thrive. These areas should then be professionally cleaned at least once a year or twice a year depending on HVAC use.
Without an annual professional cleaning, the dust and dirt buildup in the air ducts will only be redistributed or recirculated around your home. Even with weekly vacuuming inside your home, there will still be dust floating around because of the air ducts. The health risks to your family then increase, especially when you have people with allergies or compromised respiratory systems in your home.
Aside from the health risks, dirty air ducts also adversely affects the energy efficiency of HVAC systems. Think about the double-edge sword, so to speak, that comes from dirty air ducts and you will immediately call the nearest Sears Home Services location for assistance.
Dryer vent cleaning
According to the U.S. Fire Administration Reports, clothes dryer fires result in 300 injuries, 15 deaths, and $88 million in property losses every year; every month, there’s an average of 1,060 of these fires occurring. The leading cause of these fires is the “failure to clean”.
As with air ducts, the failure to clean dryer vents also has negative effects on energy efficiency of the clothes dryer. With professional cleaning, the dryer will not only be able to dry clothes faster but you will have lower energy costs, too.
The Sears technicians assigned to the job will use a high-powered vacuum equipment to dislodge lint, dirt and other debris clogging the dryer vents. They will also conduct a thorough inspection of the vents to look for problem areas, such as bends, elbows and crevices where clogging can occur.
With the Sears Home Services team, you have the assurance that your home will not only look and feel clean but, more importantly, it will actually be clean especially where it matters most.
All Sears Home Services locations accept various modes of payment, particularly cash and credit cards. Many, if not most, of them also offer financing plans that make it easier for property owners to afford the services. These plans are especially useful for property owners with large areas for cleaning or with problematic areas for treatment.
A common financing plan involves a no-interest, 12-month plan using a qualifying Sears’ card. The plan is valid for most Sears’ carpet and air duct cleaning products and services worth more than $150. The account must be fully paid within 12 months aside from it being kept in good standing.
Ask about the financing plan’s terms and conditions with the nearest Sears Home Services office in your area as it may or may not be available. Be sure to look out for local promotions and offers, too, for more discounts and great deals.
