THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A CARPET CLEANING SERVICE
Article adapted from USA Today Classifieds Blog
Yes, even with a private in-home caregiver from Abby Services assisting you with housekeeping and carpet care, you will need the help of a professional with the right equipment to get your carpets really clean.
No matter how careful you are, your carpet needs a deep clean every 1-2 years to remove underlying dirt and debris.
Many choose a professional carpet cleaning service to get the job done. The following are things to consider.
Professional Carpet Cleaning:
Professional carpet cleaning involves heavy-duty tools such as a steam cleaning machine. Professional carpet cleaners may use portable steam cleaning machines or a large truck-based unit. Truck-mounted machines are more powerful than their consumer-grade portable alternative which allows a deeper, more thorough clean.
HomeGuide.com reports that on average you can expect to pay $25 – $70 per room. The average cost of carpet cleaning is $0.25 per square foot of carpet or between $25 to $70 per room. Most homeowners pay about $50 per room. For an average three-bedroom home, you can expect to pay $175 whereas larger whole-house cleans can cost between $300 to $600. It’s always best to request a quote which is typically free.
Ensure you get a written quote before bringing in a carpet cleaning company. There can be additional unexpected charges for specific situations, such as removing stubborn spots, cleaning more difficult carpeted areas such as stairs, and more.
It is always best to communicate your expectations and do a walkthrough prior to beginning a job to make sure you don’t have any unexpected charges.
Professionals may identify that your carpet needs repaired, this could include buckling, ripples, and wrinkling. Should these issues be identified you should address the repairs first. Otherwise, you may find a carpet cleaning service that will actually harm your carpet. Your carpet cleaning service may even be able to recommend someone who can complete the necessary repairs.
No two companies are the same. Much like In-home care you need to research the service you are hiring. Referrals and references are always a good thing to check.
