Hiring a good carpet cleaning service is no easy task as one is constantly bombarded with advertisements which claim all sorts of things but hardly ever give results. The local classifieds and phone directory are full of carpet cleaning companies but how exactly do you know which one offers the best service. And there is also the question of whom to trust when you hand over your expensive Persian or Oriental rug for cleaning.
There are so many factors to consider before zeroing in on a good company which not only offers good service but is also cost effective and fits your budget. It is best to make an informed decision rather than a hasty one which will give you the best results for your time, effort and money. It is always better to choose a professional carpet cleaning service as the products and equipment required to thoroughly clean the carpets are expensive and difficult to purchase for home use. I usually check out Angie’s List to see if a company is trustworthy. There are other alternatives and cleaning products available in stores but none of them can guarantee the same results as that of a professional carpet cleaner.
Make sure that you create a list of about ten cleaning services before finally hiring one to clean the carpets and rugs. It is good to read reviews and testimonials so that you get an idea of the kind of service offered. A good company will first sent over an executive to take a look at the carpets and then state their payment; some companies have a fixed charge for every square feet of the carpet and the total cost would depend on the length of your carpet. One site you can use to review companies is Yelp.
One of the main misconceptions is that is enough if you clean your carpets when it gets visibly soiled. This is entirely false as the dirt and dust tends to get settled in the carpet fibers and only show up on accumulation. Hence it is important to get your carpets and rugs cleaned periodically and regularly to ensure that it lasts long enough and does not wear out soon. It is also important to choose a company which is equipped with different methods and options as the cleaning method varies according to use and also type of carpet.
For example, a household which has kids and pets will require hot water extraction method to clean the carpets where as low moisture cleansing is enough if children and pets are not present. Hot water extraction or steam cleansing is also the preferred method if you or anyone in your household suffer from allergies especially those related to dust. Assess the depth of knowledge of the service personnel which will give you an idea of how good the cleaning service will be. Also, sign a written contract which has details of the total payment; it is also beneficial to find out what is the compensation offered in case of any damage to your carpet or rugs.
Getting a good carpet cleaning company will ensure that your carpets stay soft and clean in addition to removing all the bacteria and dust particles. I took all these facts into consideration when finding a company servicing memphis TN and ended up a happy customer.
