- Do you use soap or detergent?
A no residue carpet cleaner will say no and will then tell you the product they se and how it works.
- What kind of cleaning system do you use?
The method recommended by major carpet mills is hot water extraction. This is because it is safer for the carpet and has the ability to remove the most soil. Insist on a carpet cleaning service that uses hot water extraction, also known as steam cleaning.
- What kind of machine do you use?
In addition to using hot water extraction, your Phoenix cleaner should use truck mounted machines. These machines are more powerful so they clean better and leave less residue behind.
- What is included in the price?
Everything needed for a standard cleaning should be included in the price. At the minimum, this should include pre-treatment and basic spot cleaning.
- Are there extra charges for stains?
They should include basic stains int he base price. It is acceptable to charge extra for complex stains such as pet stains or coffee stains.
- Who does the work?
Hopefully, you can find a good company where the owner does all of the work. Second best would be a company with employees but in no case should you ever use a company that uses subcontractors. If they are vague about who will come out, move on.
It can be a pain to call all of the companies in advance but it is very much worth it. In this industry, you need to know what you will be getting before you commit.
