Choosing The Right Carpet Cleaner

Choosing-The-Right-Carpet-Cleaner

A certified professional is trained to follow proper cleaning techniques that can bring your carpet back to life.

While regular vacuuming with a strong, well-functioning and properly filtered vacuum can maintain the appearance of a carpet, it is inevitable that at some point a professional cleaning will be needed to remove soil and restore appearance.

When choosing a carpet cleaner, it is important to know that they're not all alike. In fact, who you choose could make a difference in the quality of care your furnishings receive. Add to that the quality of equipment and technology involved and choosing the best professional can become a daunting task.

When choosing a carpet cleaner, The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends only hiring certified cleaning companies that employ trained technicians. Before hiring a carpet cleaning service, consumers should ask the company representative:

What are the basic services offered and what constitutes an extra charge?

Which cleaning method will be used?

Is there an extra charge for moving furniture?

Does the company have a business license and carry insurance?

Prior to any services, it is important to request a written contract or invoice confirming the total price. To learn more, visit the IICRC Web site at www.certifiedcleaners.org.
