Keeping your home’s carpet cleancan be one of the most difficult and time consuming tasks for a do-it-yourselfer. The best way to have your upholstery and carpet cleaned is to have the cleaning done by professionals.
When it comes to keeping a tidy home, the hardest part for a do-it-yourselfer is often the furniture and the carpeting. Even if you have a hot water extraction machine, it seems as if these items always tend to take on a dingy look. To avoid this, it is best to have your carpet and upholstery cleaning done by professionals. The products available to home users lack the strength of the professional quality solutions. In cases where children and pets are a concern, many companies have now moved to green, non-toxic, products.
The problem with a hot water extraction machine is that there is never enough suction to remove as much of the moisture as is needed. This wetness sits in the fiber and gathers accumulations of dust and other grime, which dry along with the material. Even when the surface of the fiber feels dry, the underlying material is not. This causes people to think it is okay to sit on the furniture and walk on the floors before they really should. When they do this, dirt, dead skin and all kinds of other soils get ground into the fibers. Everything will look nice while it is drying, but shortly afterward it will all begin to look dingy again.
By having a company come in to take care of your carpets and your upholstery cleaning, you can ensure a deep evacuation of dirt. Not only does this leave your house looking terrific, but you can feel good about it too because getting rid of the dust mites and other entities living deep in the material reduces the overall allergens in your home. In addition, most companies use technology that allows the material to dry much quicker than they would when a do-it-yourselfer does the job. This means family and pets can walk on the floors sooner and not worrying about transferring soil to light colored furniture.
As far as kids and pets are concerned, some companies use products that are exclusively non-toxic. These solutions are usually free from odors, which is very nice for people that are allergic to perfumes. This also means there are no harmful fumes to irritate those with chronic bronchitis or asthma. Some upholstery cleaning solution is also completely natural, which means you have no worries at all about the effect on children, pets and even the environment.
When hunting for a carpeting and upholstery cleaning company, be sure to ask questions. You should find out what types of solutions will be used, how long the total dry time will be and how often they recommend repeat visits. Also check to be sure the company is licensed, bonded and insured (in states where applicable). Ask the representative that you speak to if the price quoted is a guarantee. Some businesses will give you one priceArticle Submission, but then try to add on miscellaneous charges or up sell you while they are in the cleanup process. These “add-on” are not necessary. An honest company stands by its original estimate and offers you any available options prior to scheduling an appointment.
