Peoria, AZ, September 20, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The holidays are just around the corner and that means it’s time to get your home spruced up for company. One of your home’s best assets is your carpeting so hire an experienced professional who will do the job right, says Mike Sweet of Sweet Touch Carpet Cleaning of Peoria.
Here are some tips for hiring a qualified company:
1. Understand the carpet cleaning process.
Some companies use a wet cleaning method that has a significant drying time while others are considered "dry" treatments, which you can walk on as soon as the cleaning is finished. Some treatments use powerful cleaning chemicals, while others rely on the power of steam, or environmentally friendly cleaning products.
“We use a ProChem truck-mounted carpet cleaning machine that provides steam cleaning and extraction, which has been proven to be the best method in the industry,” explains Sweet. “Our safe and biodegradable cleaning solutions are tough on stains, but safe for your family and pets.”
2. Research prospective carpet cleaning companies.
Talk with your friends and family, and check online reviews on sites like ToFixIt or Angie’s List. Once you've settled on a few companies in your area, ask for references so you can find out whether previous customers were satisfied with the carpet cleaner's work.
3. Avoid the lowest price option.
The company with the lowest price may not be the best choice.
Sometimes these companies offer a low price simply to get a foot in the door. Once they come to your home, they'll identify many other issues to upsell and get you to buy more expensive services. Make your decision based on quality and recommendations first, and consider price as a secondary option.
The warranty on your carpet could be voided if you don’t have them cleaned according to the manufacturer’s specs.
4. Ask about included services.
The advertised price you see when shopping for carpet cleaning companies is typically just a base price. Extra services will cost more, and you need to know what these other costs might be.
As you call carpet companies, ask what is included in the quoted price. Will they move furniture for you? Will they clean high-traffic areas? Does it cost extra to clean stairs?
5. Consider the employees.
Make sure to only hire a company that screens its employees and conducts criminal background checks. A quality carpet cleaning company should take responsibility for its employees and make amends if the carpet or your belongings are damaged during the cleaning process. “Carpet cleaners aren’t required to be certified but we require certification of our employees,” Sweet says.
