Carpet Cleaning: How to Select a Professional Carpet Cleaning Firm

If your carpet still looks dirty and dingy after vacuuming then it may be time to have your carpets professionally deep cleaned. Hiring a cleaning firm can be difficult and costly if you don’t know what questions to ask.

When it’s time to hire a carpet cleaning company, asking these questions will help you choose a professional, experienced and reputable company.

  1. How long has your company been in business? This speaks volumes about a company’s experience and reputation.
  2. How long has the technician you plan on sending to my house been with the company? This will also tell you about the experience of the technician
  3. What kind of training or certifications do you provide your cleaning crews before they are allowed to enter customer’s homes? Most reputable companies will require their technicians to obtain certifications.
  4. Do you vacuum the carpet before you clean? Most soil in carpet is insoluble which means water or solvents can’t break them down. The best way to remove this type of soiling is by dry vacuuming
  5. Do you Pre- spray the carpet before you clean? This helps break down the high traffic areas and spots before they clean the carpets.
  6. Does your cleaning process include spotting for any stubborn stains? If this is not included they may charge additional fees for this service.
  7. How long will it take my carpets to dry? This is important because most professional cleaning should only take 6- 8 hours to dry.

By asking these important questions you will be able to tell what kind of experience and reputation the company has and what type of cleaning you can expect. If the company employs these steps in the cleaning process you can expect to have a very clean carpet without any surprises.

Carpet Cleaning: Fundamentals of Cleaning Carpets

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Cleaning carpets in the Tampa Bay area should consist of 4 fundamental processes to achieve the cleanest results

At National Cleaning Specialists we first identify the carpet construction to determine what type of cleaning agents will provide the safest and most effective results. Once this is done, we then pre inspect the carpet areas being cleaned to determine the amount of soiling, stains, and any installation problems prior to cleaning. Choosing the proper stain removal process is key to having success with removing stains.

There are four steps that should be done if you want clean carpets.

1. Dry soil removal: This process is accomplished with using a high powered vacuum and brush system. By doing this first, it will remove more sand and dirt from your carpets. Most non professional carpet cleaners do not vacuum the carpet prior to cleaning. Most experts would agree that the 85% of soil found in carpets is dry soil. This type of soiling is insoluble, which means it can not be broken down with use of water base cleaning agents or solvents. The most effective way is to vacuum the carpets prior to cleaning.
2. Soil Suspension: An example of this is the wash cycle in your washing machine. This is accomplished by using an alkaline pre conditioner to treat the areas prior to cleaning. This helps in suspending the oily residues for removal. ?
3. Ph balancing rinse: With the use of special cleaning agents, this process removes the suspended soils from the carpet and also neutralizes the previous cleaning agents. The carpet is free of any residue and left clean and soft
4. Spotting: If any spots remain professional spotting agents should be used. Some difficult stains such as ink, mustard, and coffee will most likely need specialty spotters to remove.

There are other steps involved in cleaning carpets but these mentioned are the bare minimum in order to achieve Clean Carpets.
