Dos and Don’ts
If you are thinking about cleaning your carpet, here are some things to stay away from:
- If it sounds cheap, it is cheap. Their equipment. Their chemicals. Their business.
- If it sounds too good to be true, be careful. It might be a “bait and switch” company. In the door for $79.95 and out the door with over $600.00 ‘As Seen on TV!’
- Do not clean your carpet by bonnet cleaning or dry cleaning method. There is no extraction and the dirt will be ground in and left in your carpet along with their chemicals.
- Do not rent a machine. If you follow the directions, in some cases, you will void the warranty on new carpet.
Consider this. Tonight when you take a shower, don’t rinse the shampoo out of your hair. Instead pat it dry and see how long it takes for your hair to get dirty. You don’t know how many people have told me they got their carpet cleaned and a week later it looks dirty again. Congratulations, you just turned your carpet into a shoe cleaner! To save time, some carpet cleaners don’t pre-spray your carpet. Instead, they just dump soap into their machine and then leave it in your carpet. The only damage done is to the carpet cleaning industry though. If this has happened to you, we can restore your carpet by removing the soap and dirt that was left behind. Be prompt about calling. Soap attracts dirt and the longer you wait, the harder it will be.
