Before you decide to pay a local carpet cleaner to clean the rugs in your home, there are some questions you should be asking them. This will ensure that you understand the service they will provide you with. Take out your pen and notepad and get ready to write down some notes.
- How many years have you been in business? This is a big one that you really need to ask. Those who have been in business for many years have proven they have the right customer service and cleaning methods that work. You should be wary about hiring a company that is brand new. It's not that they may not do a good job, rather, it's the potential for mistakes.
- What cleaning method do you use? There are two big methods that are used by most cleaning companies across the nation. These are hot water extraction (steam method) and dry carpet cleaning. The hot water extraction is the most effective and will leave your carpets wet for about 12 to 24 hours after the service is completed. Dry carpet cleaning is a different method that uses solely dry compounds to clean your carpets, so there's no wait time after the service for the carpets to dry.
