Five Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Carpet Cleaning Company

Share :

The carpet in your home is an expensive investment and one that, if cared for properly, will keep you and your family comfortable for years to come. However, if you want to keep your carpeting in tip-top shape, you will need to have it cleaned regularly. But before you decide to hire a carpet cleaning Houston company, there are a few things you need to know first.

 

1. Inquire if the contractor will be using a truck-mounted machine or a portable unit. A truck-mounted machine, also known as hot water extraction, is much more powerful and recommended by many carpet makers. In fact, some carpet companies require you to use a truck-mounted cleaning process on your carpet; otherwise, it could void the warranty.

 

2. Find out if the carpet cleaning company will be using your water or theirs. A professional carpet cleaning company will supply their own water and not try to run a hose from your house to their machine.

 

3. It\’s always a good idea to find out if the contractor will be using chemicals or steam. Steam is much healthier for you and your carpet, and won\’t leave soapy residue behind.

 

4. Water activates pet odors. Therefore, if you have pets, and you don\’t notice any pet odor before your carpets were cleaned, you may very well have pet damage that won\’t become apparent until the water hits it.

 

If you do have pet damage, your carpet padding may need to be replaced. If the pet damage is severe, you may need to have the concrete beneath sealed as well. If you don\’t, cleaning your carpet won\’t take care of the entire problem and the pet odors will remain.

 

5. To extend the life of your carpet, it\’s best to vacuum at least once each week to prevent the buildup of grit that could damage your carpet. Additionally, you should have your carpets deep cleaned once every 12 to 18 months, if you want to extend the life of your carpet and preserve your investment for as long as possible.
