Many home owners and renters receive flyers from carpet cleaners offering their services at enticingly low prices. If you're considering hiring one of these services, there are two phrases you must remember:
Carpet cleaning services are not regulated. There are no specific laws governing how they tout their wares, or official guidelines to help the consumer. Reputable professional carpet cleaners, however, do conform to a certain set of standard practices.
The bottom line cost of carpet cleaning will vary - there is no real way for a carpet cleaning company to give you an accurate estimate without knowing the size of a room and seeing the condition of the carpet. If you received a flyer that offers a set price for a set number of rooms, be sure to look for the fine print that tells you the size of the rooms they are talking about. If you can't find it, then be sure you ask the question when you call.
When asking for an estimate, be honest with yourself and the service provider - if you've got pets and they've left some spots or stains that need treating and odors to be removed, if you know your carpet requires special handling, make sure these special needs are noted in advance.
There are carpet cleaners who swear by their truck mount, and carpet cleaners who love portable equipment more. Both truck mounted steam carpet cleaners and portable steam cleaning equipment can do an excellent job. Each has its pros and cons, and one is not better than the other. It is more important that the technicians are trained to use the equipment correctly. A tool is only as good as the person using it!
Steam cleaning equipment is extremely versatile, and can be used for rug cleaning and upholstery cleaning as well as carpet cleaning. This is a bonus for residential and commercial carpet cleaners, as they can offer customers all the services they need in one visit.
