Professional Carpet Cleaning
You know your carpet is dirty, because you can see stains. Some days you may even smell the pet or party memories your carpet is holding on to. You also know, though, that you don’t want to introduce potential problems with improperly cleaned carpet.
Two Cleaning Agents You Don’t Want
Perchlorethylene and ammonium hydroxide are two widely used chemicals in the carpet cleaning industry. The former is a carcinogen; the latter can cause eye and skin irritation, as well as breathing difficulties. Steer clear of cleaning methods that soak your carpets in harsh chemicals like these, touting that it’s a “dry cleaning method.”
What’s the Best Carpet-Cleaning Method, Then?
Most carpet manufacturers recommend a process called “Hot Water Extraction.” This method uses high-velocity hot water to clean, instead of dangerous chemicals. Natural water, heated to a dirt-busting but safe temperature, is pulled through hoses to quickly rinse your carpet. This method of carpet cleaning allows you to breathe comfortably both during and after treatment.
Look Out for Cleaners Who Leave Your Carpet Soaking Wet
If your carpet is properly cleaned, the correct amount of water is used, and your carpet will dry in less than four hours. A good carpet cleaner will take the time and care to ensure that every area of your carpet is carefully and correctly rinsed.
Professional Cleaners Make the Process Easy for You
One of the most important ways you can “breathe easy” with your carpet cleaning is choosing the right people for the job. True professionals will explain the cleaning process, put you at ease with their politeness and attention to detail, and truly want you to be happy with the outcome. If you have any concerns or questions, you should feel comfortable asking, and expect easy-to-understand answers. Check others’ experiences with the cleaning company to see if they’re happy.
