Finding a quality carpet cleaner is difficult enough but if you are living in a condo or an apartment it becomes much more so. There are particular challenges when cleaning condos and not every carpet cleaning service can or will do the work. Still, it must be cleaned so what are you to do. Here is what you need to know about finding a carpet cleaning service for your apartment or condo in Charlotte.
First, you need to choose the method of carpet cleaning. If you live on the third floor or lower and are within 100 feet of a good parking spot, you should find a carpet cleaner that does truck mounted hot water extraction. It cleans the best and is the preferred method. If you do not meet the above requirements, you will have to choose a portable steam cleaner or a dry carpet cleaning service. If you have heavy soil, choose portable steam cleaning. If you have light soil and want your carpet dry fast, choose a dry carpet cleaner.
Now, you need to do some research and choose at least three solid companies in Charlotte. Google their name and see what comes up. If they have been in business for any length of time, there will be reviews. Avoid those with an abundant amount of negative reviews. Also avoid those that you can not find any information about. This indicates that the company is very new to the business.
After doing your online research, call the companies left on your list. Ask them about their pricing and what it includes. Make sure that their base price includes at least vacuuming, pre-treatment and spot cleaning. Also verify that they do in fact clean apartments and tell them the details on yours. What floor are you on, how close is parking, is their outside water, etc. You want to make sure they can do the job before you waste theirs and your time.
By now, you should have a decent Charlotte carpet cleaner. Book the time and date. Be sure to prepare for their arrival by moving furniture in advance. Also be prepared to lock up any animals. If necessary, park your vehicle in a prime spot so that it is saved for your carpet cleaner.
