Before You Hire A Carpet Cleaner – Make Sure You Are Getting What You Expect

I remember the day as though it were yesterday; thumbing through the TV Guide and running across that unbelievable ad "carpet cleaning just $9.99 per room." How awesome is that? I can have my bedroom, living room, and hallway professionally cleaned and it will only cost me $30 dollars! It would cost more than that just to rent a Rug Doctor, Right? Long story short I wound up paying a lot more than expected and the guy had me using his brush machine in the heavy soiled areas for him because he was running late, what an experience. Then there was that time I saved a lot of money on this really good dentist, no way Im not telling you the story, you'll have to use your imagination on that one! A few years later and a whole lot wiser, I have come to find out... you get what you pay for.

 

Here are a few things to look for when hiring a carpet cleaner:

1. Check the company’s Better Business Bureau rating.

2. Were they thorough with their questions and did they find out your needs?

3. Did they come across as professional and courteous?

4. Does the price sound too good to be true?

5. Are they certified and insured?

 

Great Questions to ask before scheduling your appointment:

1. Do they guarantee phone quotes and are there any additional charges

2. How long have they been in business in this area?

3. What kind of equipment will be used?

4. Are the cleaning agents safe and non-toxic?

5. Do they follow the Carpet Manufacturers Suggested Methods of Cleaning?

6. Will furniture be moved and blocked

7. How long will it take for the carpet to dry?

8. Does the company have references?

9. Is the work guaranteed?

 

What to be aware of and what to expect:

There are a lot of companies offering low advertised rates and using very poor quality technicians, equipment and cleaning agents. Once one of these disreputable individuals is in your home you will be faced with a high pressured sales pitch instead of a hard working carpet cleaner! Hopefully by reading this article you will be able to avoid this uncomfortable experience but always remember to follow your gut feeling and do not be afraid to ask a questionable contractor to leave your home. It is much easier to do this at first warning than it is later, once they have started the work. Low advertised rates are almost always too good to be true.

You will want to know the company you hire has a good quality truck mounted steam cleaning system. Uses safe, eco-friendly carpet cleaning products, is well trained, knowledgeable, and courteous. A company that has been in business in your area for several years is always a good way to go. I have found that paying a little bit more for quality and having a great experience with a reputable company and their technicians is a luxury I no longer choose to do without. There are good companies in your area and with this information you will be well informed before hiring any carpet cleaning company and yes, you can expect to have a great job and a terrific experience.

Carpet Protector: Your best choice for preventing stains

Carpet Protector: your best choice for preventing stains

Almost all American-made synthetic carpet offer some sort of stain protection, which makes it easier than ever to remove spots. These treatments make carpet relatively impervious to spotting from food, beverages or pet accidents. But over time the protective chemicals can be worn away by heavy traffic. All carpet is ultimately a fiber. When treated with a stain treatment after cleaning, whether it is a stain resistant fiber or not, your carpet will be better equipped to repel stains.

Why You Should Have a Carpet Protector Applied After Cleaning

Over time the mill-applied carpet protectors can lose their effectiveness. This is due to the fibers being abraded during foot traffic. Although protective treatments are very good, they do need to be replenished after a few years of use, especially in high-traffic areas. The protection applied in the mill can wear off over time, and portions of the fiber can be exposed during abrasions that were not exposed during the mill treatment. The application of a carpet protector after cleaning will ensure that the performance of the fiber will be maintained.

Benefits to carpet protector

  • Forms an invisible shield around each fiber
  • Prevents dirt from lodging into the carpet fibers
  • Repels liquid spills
  • Helps carpets last longer
  • Protects your carpet investment
  • Helps make carpets easier to care for
  • Extra protection from children, pets, and accidents

Maintaining the carpets stain resistance will help your carpet repel dirt and the less dirt will be able to build up – extending the life of the carpet fibers and the look of your carpet. Applying a carpet protector is always a good choice for preventing permanent stains.

Do 'Green' Cleaning Products Make That Much Difference?

Not only will your family benefit by using 'green' cleaning products, but the whole Earth benefits from them as well, which is good not just now, but for future generations to come. The harmful chemicals that we have used forever put toxins in the air we breathe, the ground our food grows from and the water we bath and drink. Do you ever wonder how things would be if everyone would use only green cleaning products and methods? Imagine these benefits could be worldwide if we all went green.

Reduced Allergies

For several generations now, we have more and more homes that have carpeting, drapes and fabric covered furniture as well as just more 'trash' in the air. From all of that, it is common for children to have allergies now while family history would not show a history of allergies. What has been found in select situations are the cleaning products that are being used contain chemicals that didn't even exist 50, 75 or 100 years ago. The bleaches, cleaning sprays and other chemicals contain allergens and toxins that are irritating children and elderly people causing the allergy increase.

Lower Toxic Risk

The cancer causing and skin irritants and the poisonous elements found inside the cleaning chemicals we use today are frightening. By going 'green', we would not only make it healthier for everyone's respiratory system but we could reduce the risk of children getting them and ingesting them. When the cleaning products on the market today are used, such as sprays, the toxins are in the air and we all inhale them, which not only irritate our lungs and sinus, but have been proven to be harmful to our heart as well as cause cancer.

Further Risks

Traditional cleaning products have been associated with other risks as well and nobody knows those risks better than a professional cleaning company like Carpet Renovations Inc. With a company like this, they have learned the 'green' methods and use the 'green' cleaner that the EPA has approved and recommended. By choosing 'green' to clean, you will create a cleaner, healthier environment for you and your family and leave a lasting impression on generations to come.
