There are some important things to expect from a professional on carpet cleaning company. It all starts with a phone call to get some information and hopefully to set up an appointment to have your carpets cleaned. When the person on the other end of the phone is friendly, patient, and helpful, you probably will want to set up that appointment. You can do some research about carpet cleaning companies on the Internet as well as talk to people you know and find out what carpet cleaning companies they would recommend.
Before the professional cleaners arrive, there are some things that we recommend you do. First, you are paying them to get the deep dirt and oils out of your carpet, not the dirt that you can easily vacuum out. So, it is important that you vacuum the rooms thoroughly that you plan to have them clean. Also, being home when the guys arrive will make it possible for you to show them the especially soiled or stained areas of your carpet, so they can work their magic on them. They may use a special cleaner to pre-treat the especially soiled or stained areas to insure that the stains do come out.
It is not enough just to vacuum the surface of your floor covering. It is what gets embedded in your carpet and pad that cause the most damage and create the most health issues for those that live on it. A typical carpet can have dirt, dust, cockroach allergens, pet dander, particle pollutants, and lead. Dust mites don’t cause allergies but their feces and body pieces do, which can simply be inhaled when walking across the carpet. If your carpet has gotten wet, it is possible that the liquid has gone clear through the pad and into the sub-floor. Mold can grow if the flooring materials don’t dry completely.
Shampooing floor cover was traditionally the way carpets were cleaned unless you could take them out, hang them on a line, and beat the accumulated dirt out of them. Today, you can have your cover shampooed, but there are better methods available that do a much better job. Steam cleaning is a very effective way of cleaning carpets because the boiling hot water is injected into the carpet with extreme pressure. This hot water will loosen the stuck-on dirt and then the carpet cleaner will extract the dirty hot water. This method of carpet cleaning removes unwanted odors and dust mites, and kills bacteria.
Dry cleaning carpet is done when an absorbent product is sprinkled all over the carpet. A machine with a brush is then worked through the carpet, which dissolves the dirt and particles. The dirt and particles are then vacuumed up. This method requires less drying time than the other methods.
