Many is the time that I have sent a team in to finish a botched job.
Carpets can be easily damaged and can often end up looking worse than when you started. Here are a few reasons why you should employ a professional carpet cleaning company:
• They have the right equipment. Now you may have hired one of those machines from your local supermarket to do the job and bought the cleaning fluid and it is possible to get decent results with them. Too often, however, the machines are poorly maintained and not serviced regularly. In addition they may not be suited to your type of carpet. A professional firm will own a variety of machines and ensure they use the right one for your floor surface, tailoring their technique to your specific requirements.
• They can deal with stains. When something gets spilt on a carpet the usual reaction is to grab whatever cleaning product is in the cupboard, splash it on and get scrubbing. Unfortunately this can lead to irreparable damage to your carpet. Professional carpet cleaners will use a cleaning product appropriate for the type of carpet and source of the staining. They keep your carpets looking better for longer and in the long term actually save you money.
• They will use the right materials and methods for your carpet. You probably know that carpets are made from various natural materials (wool, cotton, sisal) or synthetic ones (nylon, polypropylene) using different techniques (tufted, woven, looped). Professional carpet cleaners are trained to identify these different materials and production methods and will adapt their cleaning techniques accordingly to avoid damage and get the best results for you.
• They avoid over wetting the carpet. A common problem when cleaning carpets is to use too much water, leading to expansion and then contraction as the carpet dries out. This can leave it sagging in places and with the carpet losing its shape. In addition older carpets and rugs sometimes have plant based backing which when wet can cause the whole surface to go brown. Needless to say professional firms will avoid such problems.
So there you have it – if you want your carpets cleaned efficiently and economically contact a professional carpet cleaning company.
