How to Choose a Good Carpet Cleaning Service
If your carpets are soiled and dirty, you’re probably thinking about hiring a carpet cleaning service. That means it’s time to do some research but when you search for carpet cleaning companies in your area, you’re probably going to be confronted with hundreds of entries. So how do you figure out which one is going to do the best job? Here are a few tips from the carpet cleaning experts at JMS Enterprises. We’ve been providing carpet cleaning services in Bucks County, Montgomery County, and Delaware County since 1973, so you know you can trust our opinion. Here are some things to look for during your search for the perfect carpet cleaning service, whether you’re in the greater Philadelphia area or anywhere else in the country.
Of the various methods of carpet cleaning, steam cleaning and shampooing are probably the most popular. During shampooing, a rotary machine is used in conjunction with cleaning agents to physically scrub out dirt. While this may get your carpets clean on the surface, it doesn’t do as good of a job as steam cleaning. With steam cleaning, hot water and cleaning solution are injected into the carpet under pressure. This pressurized water mixture gets all the way down to the carpet backing, where it can be removed (along with dirt and stains) using powerful suction. Unlike shampooing, steam cleaning gets deep down into the carpet fibers without the need for scrub brushes, which can damage carpet fibers and leave your carpet looking dull. When you’re looking for a carpet cleaning service, we suggest you ditch the shampoo method and look for a steam cleaner.
Truck Mounted Equipment
All the best, state of the art carpet cleaning equipment is truck mounted these days. If your carpet cleaning service doesn’t use this type of equipment, you’re likely not getting any better of a cleaning than you would renting a machine. For best results, look for a carpet cleaning service that uses the latest truck mounted equipment.
Licensed, Bonded, and Insured
If you’re looking at a carpet cleaning service that’s not licensed, bonded, and ensured, you could be in for a major disappointment. A good carpet cleaner will have a business license, and will be insured and bonded to protect you in case of damage or any other financial losses. If your carpet cleaner doesn’t possess these credentials, you could be on the hook for costly damages if they botch your job.
The best carpet cleaning companies will stand by their work in the form of a guarantee. If they can’t guarantee their work, it probably means they’ve had some unsatisfied customers in the past. If your carpet cleaning service won’t offer a guarantee, you should look elsewhere.
