When you have your carpet cleaned in Miami, you want to have it stay clean for a long time. Because of this, you need to choose a company that leaves zero soil attracting residue behind. There is little excuse for a company to still use soap in Miami. There are just too many quality cleaning solutions out there that leave no residue behind to attract soil. If you want a carpet cleaning that lasts, here is how you can find the best cleaner.
Believe it or not, carpet cleaning with non residual cleaning solutions is nothing new. Nearly half the cleaners in the Miami market will use something that does not attract soil. The trick is finding them and making sure that they do quality work. Here are the questions that you need to ask your carpet cleaner.
- Do you use soap?
The bad carpet cleaners will just say yes without much thought. The good ones will explain how they do not use soap and how they use a cleaner that does not attract soil.
- What kind of system do you use?
You want a carpet cleaner that uses the hot water extraction method of carpet cleaning. Dry cleaning systems do not clean as well as hot water extraction. This is why major carpet mills recommend consumers use it.
- What kind of equipment do you use?
Preferably they answer truck mounted machines. These machines remove more soil and leave the carpet much drier than portable machines. Not every Miami company will use them because they are expensive to buy and to operate.
- What is included in your cleaning price?
Everything needed for a basic cleaning should be in the price. This should, at the minimum, be pre-treatment and basic spot cleaning.
- Do you charge extra for any stains?
It is okay to charge extra for specialty stains like red dye or pet stains. If the cleaner charges extra for heavy soiling or heavy spotting, you should move on.
- Who will be doing the work?
Make sure that the owner or their employees will be doing the work. No subcontractors.
After asking the above questions, you should have a pretty good idea as to whether you want to hire a company. If, after doing your interview, you have a bad feeling about a company, move on. It might seem like a lot of work, asking all of these questions but it is the only way to find a quality cleaning service.
