A lot of carpet producers advise expert hot water extraction as the main cleansing method for synthetic carpets. Although it’s typically described as “steam” cleansing, there’s no steam involved. The carpet is treated in advance with a special detergent solution paying close attention to areas where there are spots or stains. Then the carpet is rinsed with a hot solution using high pressure this solution is forced into your carpet and vacuumed out. When done properly by a professional, this process deep cleans and doesn’t leave a soap residue.
Quality carpet cleaning companies charge on average between $300 and $500 to deep clean approximately 1,000 sq. ft. of carpet. At that rate, you might be lured to avoid expert cleanings entirely and just lease a machine to clean up the carpet yourself. Do not. Or at least do not do just that. A rented or bought carpet-cleaning machine will eliminate the surface area dirt. However deep cleansing to get rid of allergens, dust and oily residues requires the specialized equipment and training of a pro.
Do not take quotes over the phone
Quality pros will offer referrals, an in-home inspection and a written estimate based upon the square footage, condition and type of the carpeting rather than the number of rooms cleaned, and a written guarantee of their work.
Beware of “discount rate” carpet cleaners
Discount pros depend on making volume sales rather than developing ongoing client relationships. They generally spray soap on your carpet, draw up the water and are gone in 30 minutes. These services leave a soap residue that will in fact attract dirt to your carpet. Those “three rooms for 50 dollars” offers also get them into your home so they can sell you pricey add-ons like spot or stain removal and deodorizers– services that quality cleaners include for free.
You get exactly what you pay for
Quality carpet cleaning companies charge according to the type of carpets, the services you require and the size of the job. The whole process can take one to 3 hours.
4 methods to acknowledge quality carpet cleaning pros:
- Truck mounted equipment
Truck-mounted equipment is a better option than portable steam cleansing equipment due to the fact that it exhausts the filthy air and humidity exterior. Its more powerful suction leaves carpets drier, too.
- Everything’s included
A professional carpet cleaning service will include vacuuming, moving furniture, spot or stain removal, pretreating and ventilating as part of their carpet cleaning package.
- High-pressure Rinse
Professionals require a high-pressure, very hot rinse solution into the carpet then extract it to upset the pile and neutralize the carpet’s pH.
- Furnishings Blocking
To prevent spots from moving from furniture legs to the moist carpet after cleaning, quality pros set furniture on blocks or pads.
