The Method of Cleaning

Despite what most might think, not all carpet cleaning companies are the same, and not all will treat your carpets the same. Some methods of carpet cleaning could damage your carpet and may even void your warranty. It’s important to choose a carpet cleaning company who is knowledgeable of the different methods of carpet cleaning and will have the best cleaning method for your home, and for the type of carpet you have.

Another thing to take into consideration is how companies clean the carpet. Traditional steam cleaners use more water during their cleanings, which take longer to dry. Chem-Dry carpet cleaners use our patented Hot Carbonated Extraction cleaning method, which means that your carpets will dry in 1-2 hours, instead of 1-2 days.

Carpet Cleaning Chemicals

Not all carpet cleaning products are the same. Some are acidic and some are alkaline. Some are powders, others are liquid. Some are safe for pets and children, others are not. It’s important to choose a carpet cleaning company that is knowledgeable about the products they are using and to choose the one that is best for your carpet.

Something else to take into consideration is how carpet cleaning products will react to different materials and stains. Some products can cause yellowing or discoloration if used on material that doesn’t react well with them. When choosing a carpet cleaning company, it’s important to know what type of material your carpet is made of and ask the carpet cleaning company you’re choosing if their products are compatible with that type of material.

Knowledge and Expertise

Not all carpet is the same, and should be treated differently. Having a carpet cleaning company that is knowledgeable and experienced in different types of material will ensure that your carpet is in good hands and you will have great results.

When choosing a carpet cleaning company, some important things to as are how long they’ve been in business? Do you have experience with nylon, polyester and wool carpet? Do you have any type of insurance if my carpet becomes damaged or discolored?

Customer Care

How a carpet cleaning company treats their customers is very important. Inviting a technician into your home to treat your carpets shows that you trust them and that they will do a good job. If a company doesn’t treat you kindly, how do you know you will take care of your carpet to the best of their ability?

Having a carpet cleaning company that treats you well and cares for their customers is a great way to know they will deliver the same amount of care to your carpets.
