Consider Professional Carpet Cleaning Says Werner Braun

Consider Professional Carpet Cleaning Says Werner Braun

Professional Carpet Cleaning Makes Life Easier for You and Your Carpet, says Werner Braun

In his February 4, 2012 column titled "Professional carpet cleaning" for Dalton’s Daily-Citizen  Carpet and Rug Institute President Werner Braun discusses the gift of a professional carpet cleaning.

“While there are plenty of do-it-yourself cleaning methods on the market, hiring a professional is among the safest, fastest and easiest options. Cleaning professionals who utilize CRI-certified carpet cleaning products as part of their cleaning process are recognized as Seal of Approval service providers. Using these providers is an easy way to make sure that your carpets are being professionally cleaned with products that will help maintain your carpet’s life and beauty.
At CRI, we recommend that you have your carpet deep cleaned every 12 to 18 months. This should keep your carpet at its key peak performance.
When you do decide to hire a cleaning professional, you might want to bear in mind the following:

  • Be realistic about companies that advertise cleaning priced by the room. Charges should reflect the total area cleaned, and room sizes vary greatly.

  • Make sure you select a cleaning professional with certification from an organization that certifies professionals.
  • Ask the potential service provider good questions, such as “How long have you been in business?” “What formal training is required for the company’s management and technicians?” and “Do you vacuum before deep cleaning the carpet?”
  • Be sure to arrange for an in-home inspection and estimate before you commit.
Thank you, Werner

Agree with everything recommending in this post. Carpet cleaning can also improve indoor air quality. We also recommend you ask the company if they offer a guarantee. If a coupon sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

I own a carpet cleaning company in Jacksonville, FL. I would add to this blog the fact that Shaw carpet one of the largest carpet manufacturers will void their carpet warranty if the carpet isn't cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner using steam cleaning. Most of the DYI solutions leave too much residue behind which attracts more dirt than was originally in the carpet before being cleaned.

I love this information about asking the right questions. A carpet cleaning company's answers to hard questions like this can really show you whether or not they're a quality company and if they're going to do quality work. When you get specific about the techniques they use and why those are effective, you will start to see the weaknesses in a weak company and the strength in a strong one.

The biggest misconception seems to be people thinking the carpet cleaning machines rented at the store will do as good of a job as a professional carpet cleaning company.

We remind our customers to vacuum twice a week. Most people don't even vacuum once a week. We recommend they purchase a quality vacuum cleaner as well.

Thanks for all these good comments - I used to vacuum once a week, but have been working to do at least a touch-up in between times. Hardest part is getting the vacuum out and putting it away again.
