You’re not out of luck just yet! Here’s a curated step-by-step to get you started on your path to a fresh, clean and healthy carpet.
- Make a Commitment, To Yourself: It’s time to accept, your carpets need a cleaning! The longer they remain dirty, the sooner they’ll wear out. Plus the longer you have to breathe all the pollen, fungus, and chemicals that hide in your carpet.
- List Your Objectives: Do you want only the dirt removed, something you could do with a rented shampooer. Or do you want all the bacteria, fungus, chemicals and dust mites removed, which will require a hot water truck-mount cleaner, as we use. Do you want to work with an honest, reputable company-or are you willing to risk working with the company that offers you the lowest price-knowing that the company might not be in business tomorrow.
- Ask The Right Questions: The way you learn about a company is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are seven tough questions to ask a carpet cleaner before you invite them to your home:
- What method of carpet cleaning do you recommend?
- What type of equipment do you use to clean carpet?
- What will your equipment remove from my carpet?
- How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
- What training have you had in cleaning carpets?
- Are you a member of any trade associations?
- Is your company and technicians certified by the IICRC?
- Make That Final Leap: Once you’re satisfied that you are working with an honest, competent professional, invite him into your home and ask for a specific quotation in writing. A written quote gives you the assurance that you know exactly what your job will cost – no surprises. By following these four steps, you’ll gain all the information you need to make an informed, intelligent decision. If you want a quick, cheap carpet cleaning job, many companies in the phone book can help you. Or you can rent a shampooer from the grocery store and do it yourself.
