How To Choose A Professional Carpet Cleaner


One day it happens: you are moving around furniture and you notice the carpet under the couch looks much cleaner than the rest of the living room. That one rectangle of carpet compels you to begin the process of finding a professional carpet cleaner.

Finding a professional carpet cleaner is not as simple as it sounds. Carpets in your home are a significant investment, and you don’t want just anyone cleaning them. Not all cleaning companies are created equal, so instead of just opening up the Yellow Pages and randomly picking a professional cleaner, take a little time to do some research.

One question to ask before you hire a carpet cleaner is what industry training and certification they have. A professional carpet cleaner should have the Carpet Cleaning Certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration. Other satisfactory certificates may be Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician, Rug Cleaning Technician, Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician, or Water Damage Restoration Technician.

You should also ask about the company’s history. How long have they been in business? Also, check social media and search engines for feedback from other customers. If you can’t find any feedback online, feel free to ask for references. Ask your friends who they have used to clean their carpets, and what their recommendations might be. Word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool.

Many cleaning companies are small. They come and go frequently. Before hiring a professional carpet cleaner if they are licensed in your state. This information is available to the public online on local government websites. Along with the proper license, the company should also cover liability insurance. The insurance should cover all methods the company uses for cleaning carpets, and any related activity. You should also ask if the company runs background checks on each of their employees.

If all the above mentioned information is to your satisfaction, the next questions asked should pertain to the actual services they provide. What is included in the service? A good professional carpet cleaner will include dry soil removal, soil suspension, soil extraction, grooming, and drying. You should also get an estimate of the time needed to complete the cleaning. Another question to ask are if they will be moving furniture, if they guarantee their work, and for how long.

If all your questions are answered satisfactorily, you should have beautifully cleaned carpets and a positive experience.  More Info/Supplies Click Here
