5 Tips to Know Before Hiring a Carpet Cleaner

1. Know Your Expectations

A common misconception about carpet cleaners is that every company offers the same services and will deliver the exact same results. Most people do not realize that each carpet cleaning company has its own processes and methods. Some companies are more thorough than others, and have different service packages. Make sure you know your own expectations and that the proper research is made to select the best company for the job.

2. Communicate

There are many specific reasons individuals call on carpet cleaners. Some include: dirt or pollen removal, hard stain removal, or simply a spring-cleaning. Clear communication is important for the company to prepare the appropriate equipment and chemicals. Different cleaning objectives may require different equipment, and some may be priced separately. Ask the company about cleaning procedures and guarantees to eliminate misunderstandings.

3. Receive Clear Estimates

Some companies are purposely sly when creating estimates. The fine print at the bottom of an estimate may be hard to read and come as a surprise to customers at payment. Ask detailed questions to know exactly what services you are paying for and what you are to receive. Make sure the company is open and honest in their dealings. Written agreements are always safe practices.

4. Check Qualifications

Complete background research on a company to know a company’s level of experience and qualifications. An inexperienced carpet cleaner could cause expensive carpet damages. Use of the wrong chemicals, equipment, or techniques could damage the carpet and shorten the carpet’s life duration. Check for unsatisfied customer reviews and seek qualified recommendations from trusted sources. Also, make sure the carpet cleaners you invite into your home have background checks. It is better to be safe, than sorry!

5. Do Not Wait

Many homeowners delay hiring a carpet cleaning service until they feel their carpets are in the absolute worst condition in attempt to get their money’s worth. This customer mindset is misunderstood. The longer one waits for a carpet clean, the longer the dirt and grime soil the carpet and essentially shorten the life expectancy of the carpet. Carpets should be cleaned at least once a year, unless circumstances require more immediate attention.
