Tips & Advice
If you’re thinking about having your carpets cleaned :
 
• Make a commitment to yourself to get your carpets cleaned. The longer they remain dirty, the sooner they’ll wear out. Plus the longer you have to breathe all the pollens, fungus, chemicals and dust mites that live in your carpet.
 
• List your objectives. Do you want only the dirt removed, something you could do with a rented machine. Or do you want the bacteria, fungus and chemicals removed, which will require a hot water truck mount cleaner, like I 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 company might not be in business tomorrow.
 
• Ask questions. The way you learn about a company is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are the questions I suggest you ask:
 
 
        - What method of carpet cleaning do you recommend?
        - What type of equipment do you use to clean carpet?
        - What does 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 and, if so, which ones?
        - Are you certified by the IICRC and will you show me your certificate?
 
By following these four recommendations, you’ll gain all the information you need to make an informed, intelligent decision.
