The carpet cleaning industry is one of the few industries that are not regulated, and also has a very low barrier to entry in that anyone can call themselves a "professional carpet cleaner" without any basis for that claim. Anyone who turns up to your home with a Rug Doctor, a Karcher or unbelievable as it may sound, a simple vax has already shown you that they ARE NOT professional carpet cleaners and you should just turn them away. Yet there are people that come into your home and use cleaning chemicals which can be dangerous if you do not have the knowledge of how to use them properly, and more importantly do not have the right equipment to remove the dirt and chemicals properly.
Everyone has heard the nightmare stories about crimes committed, about overuse and improper use of chemicals, and exposes on bait-and-switch companies who use low coupon offers to get their foot in the door and hard sell unsuspecting consumers into a bill they are compelled to pay. When you open the phone book you really can't tell who the great carpet cleaners are, or the ones you would never ever want to use. The "great" carpet cleaners work hard to distinguish themselves apart from the fly-by-night companies who use unsafe cleaning practices, hard sell techniques and sometimes have very unsavoury employees.

After shopping around for prices and getting what you believe is the best deal, working on the basis that all carpet cleaners are the same and that regardless of how much or little you agreed to pay, you'll end up with the same thing - a perfectly clean carpet!
When you booked a carpet cleaner, all you've actually got is a 'promise' of a clean carpet, but it hasn't been delivered yet and when you were ringing carpet cleaning companies, your focus was on the price. Yet come the day of cleaning it suddenly becomes about quality, or what exactly are you are going to get for you money?
On the day, what if your chosen carpet cleaner shows up with a DIY machine like the Rug Doctor or Vax and proceeds to soak your carpets without them looking even slightly better.
You expected a quality carpet clean from a professional carpet cleaning company but because you used the same buying logic you use to buy a tv or fridge, where you find the product you want and then shop around for the best price - you mistakenly believed that only the price was in question and that the quality would be the same, Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth.
All carpet cleaners are NOT the same - far from it.

step 1: Make a commitment to yourself to get your carpets cleaned. The longer they remain dirty, the sooner they'll wear out. Industry testing shows that you can have up to one full pound of dirt in a square foot of carpet before it begins to look dirty. This dirt is abrasive and wears down the fibres and substantially shortens the life of your home carpets. Many warranties require at least an annual cleaning by a professional carpet cleaner to be honoured (check your own warranty to see your requirements, and if they specify the type of cleaning method to keep your warranty in effect)
Another necessity of regular cleaning is to remove the contaminants besides the "dirt" that gets trapped in your carpet fibres. The longer you wait to clean, the longer you have to breathe all the pollen, fungus, pet odours, dust mites, and chemicals that hide in your carpet.
step 2: List your objectives. Is the health of your indoor environment high enough on your list, that you would want a company that is using the proper equipment,training and cleaning solutions to address your concerns? Do you want only the surface dirt removed - something you could attempt with a rented shampooer or are you concerned about removing other contaminants (bacteria, pollen, dust mites, mould spores)? Do you want to work with an honest, reputable company or are you willing to risk working with someone who offers you the lowest price, knowing that the person might not be in business tomorrow and might not be safe to let into your home?
step 3: Ask questions. The way you learn about a company is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are some questions to ask a carpet cleaning company to help you feel more confident about the one that you choose:
- 1 - What method of carpet cleaning do you recommend for my needs?
- 2 - What type of equipment do you use to clean carpet, and what are your cleaning steps?
- 3 - How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
- 4 - What training have you had in cleaning carpets?
- 5 - Are you a member of a Trade Association or other professional organization?
- 6 - Are you and your technicians certified and can I see your certification certificates?
- 7 - Do you guarantee your work?
- 8 - Are you insured?
- 9 - Do you have any references of clients or businesses who I can call regarding your work?
step 4: Book a carpet cleaning service Once you're satisfied that you're working with an honest and professional carpet cleaning company, invite them to give you quotation in writing. A written quotation gives you the assurance that you know exactly what your job will cost - no surprises. You can book with The carpet cleaner man by calling 01382 680086.
