Calgary Carpet Cleaning- Why should you hire a carpet cleaner?
Carpets are expensive and over time they are bound to get dirty. Dirty carpets breed germs and if you have toddlers at home, you would definitely do everything in your power to prevent them from getting sick, right? So why not get your carpets cleaned? It will keep your feet warm and at the same time protect you from any microbes that might be hiding in some nook and cranny waiting for an opportunity to infect you.
Cleaning a carpet is not as easy as it looks. You may think its just a bit of oil and dirt and after a round of vacuuming it will be as good as new. If you think that way, you may be in for a rude shock. In a typical household, there is number of ways for a carpet to get stained. But you will have two broad categories of stains: the traditional ones comprising of loose dirt and dust flattened in the carpet which are easily removed with an industrial vacuum and then you will have the more durable ones that will refuse to go away. You can scrub away as much as you want to no available.
In light of the above reasons, I hope you now see why it is an extremely good idea to get the carpets cleaned by professionals. Not only will you save time, you will also land up with a beautiful clean carpet which is as good as new. Before you settle upon one, it would be a good use of your time to contact family and friends who have already gotten it done and get some advice from them regarding which carpet cleaners to approach.
What questions should you ask before hiring a carpet cleaner?
Recommendations vs. pricing
There are quite a few options out there and it would obviously be tempting to choose the one which charges the least. However, try to understand that recommendations from colleagues are likely to be more authentic and reliable than the marketing practices of the carpet cleaning companies. You may think that you will save a lot but once these people are in your house, they may identify more faults with your carpets and goad you into buying more services. In the end, you will have ended up spending more on a cleaner whose services you are not fully satisfied with. The importance of recommendations from others in your circle, is hence, paramount.
Utilizing Search Tools
These days the internet has provided us with a tool of knowledge, the search engine. So don’t be shy to read up on the company’s reputation using Google. Also check out the company’s website, their prices and read up on customer reviews. You should also look for companies which have some kind of certifications for the instruments they use or are themselves certified by an authority in the business. Basically anything that gives you an idea of the cleaners’ reputation is worth taking a look at.
Ability to handle different carpet fibers
Now that you’ve determined which are the reputable companies, the next step is to look at the kinds of services they provide. Whether or not they offer the kind of service that you are looking for. Do they provide specialized services for carpets that are made of different materials such as nylon, wool, polyester? It doesn’t require a genius to know that different fibers should be handled differently.
Dry or Wet Process?
What kind of cleaning process does the cleaner use? Is it a ‘wet’ process, that is a process which requires some amount of airing time before you can walk on it or is it a ‘dry’ process which gives you the joy of walking on your freshly cleaned carpet as soon as the professionals are done with?
Is the cleaning process environment friendly? The growing awareness towards using processes that are more ‘green’ has hit the carpet cleaning industry too. In some cases, it is not possible to remove stains without using some chemicals but for most of the process the cleaning can be done using processes based on steam or other environment friendly products.
Make sure of the pricing scheme too. It is preferable to get someone who charges you based on the area cleaned rather than the rooms cleaned. Do not waste your money unnecessarily.
These handy tips will help you close in on a preferred cleaner and if you live in Calgary, Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley, Millarville or Priddis the Calgary Carpet Cleaning will ensure that all of your needs are met.
