Hire a carpet cleaning professional

If you find that no matter how much you vacuum, your carpet still does not look like it used to, it may be time for deep cleaning. While there are do-it-yourself cleaning methods on the market, hiring a professional is the safest, fastest and easiest option. To keep your carpet at peak performance, the CRI (carpet and rug institute) recommends professionally deep cleaning your carpet every 12 to 18 months. Find a professional cleaning company in your area at the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) at www.certifiedcleaners.org or 800-835-4624.

Ask Good Questions

Do not be afraid to ask questions! Here are a few questions to keep in mind:

  • “How long have you been in business?” The answer can speak volumes about a company’s reputation and experience.
  • “What formal training is required for the company’s management and cleaning technicians?” A reputable company should require that employees receive training certifications.  Ask if they are IICRC-Certified?
  • “Do you use Seal of Approval cleaning solutions and equipment?” Seal of Approval products have been independently tested and certified to effectively clean carpet without causing any damage.
