Need your carpet cleaned in Seattle? Well, choosing a carpet cleaner can be a difficult task. Not all carpet cleaners are good or even care about doing quality work. If you live in an apartment or condo, your task is even harder because not all carpet cleaners can or will clean apartments and condos.
The first thing that you need to decide is which method to use. The best is truck mounted steam cleaning. These systems are very powerful and remove the most soil and the most moisture. The problem is that they have limited reach because hoses must come from the van or truck to your apartment or condo. To use one of these systems your unit must be within about 100 feet of a parking spot and no more than three stories high. If you meet these requirements, this is the system that you should choose.
If you are outside of those limitations, your choice is between portable steam cleaning and dry cleaning. Portable steam systems remove more soil than dry systems but they can take up to 24 hours to dry. Dry cleaning will get your carpet dry in about an hour but does not do well with heavy soil or pet stains. If you have heavy soil and can deal with the dry times, portable steam is the method that you should choose. If you have light soil with no pet stains and want it dry fast, call a dry carpet cleaner.
Whichever system you choose, be sure to fully research the company that you intend to hire. Do a search for their company name and/or phone number. Make sure that they do not have many unanswered complaints or bad reviews. If they have been in business for any length of time, you should also see positive reviews if they are any good. Avoid companies that you can not find information on, this often indicates a new company or one that changes their name often.
