When looking for a carpet cleaner, ask your acquaintances for referrals, and check advertisements in the local newspapers and on the Internet. Remember that it is best to hire professionals that are certified by a seal of approval. These companies use approved equipment and cleaning products that are both safe and effective.
Before you hire a carpet cleaning professional, ask about his experience in the business and how long he has been working in your town. You can also look up reviews on customer review websites. A good company always vacuums the carpet before cleaning it, so make sure to find out if the company does that. Make sure that the company bases their pricing on the area they clean and not on the number of rooms. Measure the area you need to clean to double-check the price.
Ask the company for a price estimate before hiring it. Find out if you need to move the furniture before the cleaners arrive, if they can move it for you and if that service costs extra. When the cleaners arrive, describe what you want them to do in detail, mentioning any areas that need extra cleaning and pointing out any stains there might be. Before the cleaners leave, make sure that you know what voids the warranty and which cleaning supplies you can use on the carpet.
