The Right Equipment

They need to have the right equipment and the right training to make sure that your carpets are well taken care of.  The carpet cleaning company is expected to be experts at what they do.  The right company will remove the furniture for you while quickly and efficiently clean the rugs underneath.  They have shampooers or steam cleaners that clean dirt from deep down inside your carpets.  They will also have industrial vacuums to remove the dirt and debris once the carpet has been cleaned.

Here are some additional tips to help you choose the right company:

  • Go Local: Whenever you can hire a local company, not only is it good for the local economy but local companies rely on word of mouth for much of their advertising.  It is in their best interest to do a good job so you will tell your friends.  Not only that if you need to have them come in quickly they are more likely to do so.
  • Make Sure They Have Insurance: Like any contractor that you are considering letting into your home to do work, make sure they have adequate insurance and they are also bonded.  That will protect you in the event there is any damage done, you won’t be held liable.
  • Check References: Always check their references, if you’re not comfortable checking their references then look at review sites online to see what previous customers have to say. You can check with Yelp or Angie’s List for reviews from past customers.
  • Ask About How They Clean: You will want to find out whether they use dry foam or steam clean.  Do they use eco-friendly cleaners or do you have to worry about your pets being on the carpet after it is cleaned.
  • How Long Have They Been in Business: The general rule of thumb is that the longer a company has been in business the better they are at what they do.

Follow these tips and you should have no problem finding a reputable company to take care of your carpets on a regular basis.
