Choosing a carpet cleaner is no easy task, especially if you live in a Fort Worth apartment or condo. Not only are quality carpet cleaners in short demand but not all of the good ones will clean apartments. If you are trying to find a carpet cleaner for your apartment or condo, here is what you need to know.
Let’s start with the carpet cleaning method. There are a number of different methods out there and you need to pick the one that will work best with you. Essentially you have truck mounted steam cleaning, portable steam cleaning and various dry cleaning methods.
The method of choice is truck mounted steam cleaning because it is the most effective. The limitation is that you must be within 100 to 150 feet of a parking spot and you must not be higher than three stories up. If you meet these requirements, this is the way to go because your carpe will get the cleanest and will dry in a matter of hours, in most cases.
If you do not meet the above requirements, you will need to go with a portable steam cleaning system or a dry cleaning system. Choose portable steam cleaning if you have heavy soiling and can deal with long dry times. Choose dry cleaning systems if you have light soiling and want your carpet to dry in under two hours. Dry cleaning systems can not handle heavy soil loads so never use one if you have pet stains.
Once you have determined the method that you want to use, choose three companies and research their names on your search engine of choice. Look for bad and good reviews. If the company has been in business for any length of time, they will have some reviews and with very little research, you should be ablle to determine if they are a good or bad choice.
