Clean carpets make the room look and feel comfortable. Using dusty carpets in a room pose a health risk especially to people suffering from asthmatic conditions.
Although there are several carpet cleaners, getting a good one is not easy. The quality of service offered by some cleaning services is not dependent on the prices offered as some may offer low prices but poor services. Here are some tips to look at when hiring a carpet cleaner.
Hire a carpet cleaner or cleaning company with experience in cleaning carpets. Always seek to know the years the cleaner has been doing the carpet cleaning business so as you can know the level of experience. Most cleaning companies have social media site where you can check for reviews and ratings or testimonials from past customers on the cleaners’ website. Get reviews and hear out experiences of different carpet cleaners from neighbors in your locality and friends. The referrals provided by the cleaner either on their company profile or website is also another source where you can get more information regarding the cleaners. Although the review might not be 100% positive, this does not necessarily translate to a bad service from the carpet cleaner.
Hire a cleaning company licensed with the relevant licensing board. A list of licensed service providers is always available for the public to see on the website of the state. Getting a licensed cleaner is important especially when the cleaner destroys your carpets or fails to acknowledge responsibility, prompting you to seek help from authorities.
Discuss the cleaning methods the carpet cleaner uses or will use on your carpets. Every carpet is made up of materials that require special cleaning and drying methods. Discuss with the carpet cleaner the best cleaning and drying method as using a wrong method will destroy the carpet. Look for a cleaner who uses methods that will not destroy the carpets after cleaning. Discuss with the cleaner what detergents are to be used on the effects if any to both the users and the environment. It is important to know the effect the detergents to be used is going to have to the environment at home, when the cleaning process takes place at the clients premises.
Know what the cleaning charges entails to avoid incurring additional charges after the cleaning process. Request for quotes from carpet cleaning companies and do a comparison, depending with what each package entails. Take advantage of some of the extra value added services offered by some cleaners. Some of these after sale services includes tips on care and maintenance of the carpets and several others. Look out for companies that offer discounted rates based on the number of carpets been cleaned.
