WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN CHOOSING A CARPET CLEANER
To find NCCA approved cleaners if your area, simply visit their website and pop in your postcode and a list of local approved professionals will appear. To help you on your search for a carpet cleaners, we put together a list of some things to look out for below.
1. Always hire a trained and insured cleaner
You should always make sure you hire a trained and insured carpet cleaner. There are people out there who offer carpet cleaning but are untrained and uninsured, so it’s always good to check.
2. Make sure quality products are being used on your carpet
There are carpet cleaners out there who will use cheap carpet shampoo and DIY equipment (Rug Doctor, Karcher, Vax etc). Many of this DIY equipment doesn’t have the required water pressure or vacuum power to lift shampoo from the carpet, which will then leave a sticky residue. This residue will attract more dirt and can result in the carpet being dirtier than before. Therefore, it’s important to make sure the carpet cleaner you choose is using quality products.
3. Watch out for prices that seem to good to be true
When prices sound too good to be true, they usually are. There are companies that will advertise carpet cleaning deals such as ‘ANY room for £20’ which seems great but usually this will be the price of their most basic offering and not a professional deep clean. For example, this price will not include vacuuming, chemicals, mechanical agitation, heat, speed drying, spot and train treatment. It’s important to be aware that the pricing you see on a marketing campaign is rarely what you’ll end up paying if you want to job done properly.
4. Make sure you always choose quality over price
You will achieve the best results by choosing quality over price. This means you should always hire a ‘real’ professional carpet cleaner. This is someone who is trained in all aspects of carpet and upholstery cleaning including advanced spot and stain removal. A professional will always clean your carpets to PAS86:2008 BSi British Standards, ensuring you receive the best results. They will also have latest and most powerful professional equipment like truck mounted units or high powered portable machines. Finally, they will only use the very best environmentally, pet/child friendly professional cleaning products which ensures safe and quality results.
