Choosing a carpet cleaner with success
Carpets can absorb a huge amount of dirt dust and germs over a period of time. Just think about it. We walk over carpets with our shoes on bringing in the ferry that from the streets into our front rooms. Sounds pretty gross right. All this is what’s happening in homes across the UK each and every day. To take this a step further. In Britain, we are a country of pet lovers. Our pets venture into every muddy and dirty place our locality has to offer and then make it into our lounge. Get the picture. All of this that will find its way into our carpet.
So what can we do about this? Well, the obvious thing that we can do is regularly clean our carpet. This sounds so obvious, Yet something many of us often put on the back burner.
There are however many people who regularly get the carpets cleaned. Ask any of these people what problems they encountered while booking a carpet cleaner. They will tell you the same thing. Not all carpet cleaners are the same. You will find many cowboys in this industry. Cowboy is someone without the skill, experience, training, and machinery to do professional carpet cleaning on your property. This sounds like something out of a movie. However, UK trading standards catch as many fraudulent carpet cleaner each and every year.
I will now explain in detail what things we should look for when hiring a carpet cleaner.
Make sure the carpet cleaning firm has the necessary equipment. This is such an important point. A carpet cleaner is only as good as his tools. So when booking a carpet cleaner ask questions on their machinery. Make sure they don’t have a cheap machine, Such as a Karcher.
Make sure the carpet cleaning firm has been in business for longer than a year. Many carpet cleaning businesses fold within the first year. The reason for this is not caring about the clientele. A business which has been run for more than a year indicates the cleaner knows how to deal with customers and perform a good job.
Make sure the carpet cleaner has good online reviews from existing customers. There is so much we can learn from past customer experiences with the tradesmen that we are yet to hire. Ask the carpet cleaner for past references or testimonials. This is a great way to find out what past clients think of the carpet cleaner.
Ask whether for solutions to be used for carpet cleaning or eco-friendly. Some carpet cleaners use harsh solutions which are irritant to the skin. Traces of the solutions are left behind in the carpet can cause redness and soreness on customers skins. It is crucial that the carpet cleaner uses eco-friendly products that are safe for the human skin such as those used by Fresher Carpets.
