What is Professional Carpet Cleaning?

professional Carpet Cleaning cost

When you hire professional carpet cleaners, you may be wondering what to expect. Usually rug cleaning companies send a team of 2 or more (depending on the job) vetted professionals to tackle your carpet dirt and grime. Professional carpet and rug cleaners generally use a hot water extraction method. Though often confused with the conventional steam cleaning method, they are not the same. The hot water extraction method is a procedure that employs high pressure for agitation and heated water for enhancing the reaction time. Now, all sites can slap the word professional on them and call themselves a professional cleaning company. So here are the things to look out for on real professional cleaning web sites:

  • Insured and vetted technicians;
  • 100% clean guarantee;
  • Flexible working hours;
  • No hidden charges;
  • Free quotes over the phone;
  • 72-hour re-clean guarantee;
  • Provides top-quality cleaning products;
  • Eco-friendly products available on request.Look out for these things and you’ll guarantee yourself top-quality services!

After Professional Carpet Cleaning

You may be wondering about the time span in which you shouldn’t walk on your carpet after professional carpet cleaners. Realistically, you can walk on damp carpets barefoot after an hour or so. But tread lightly! You don’t want to damage the fibres. Even so, it’s best to consult the carpet cleaners before making any rash decisions of running around on your freshly cleaned rugs! You may also be wondering if you need to hoover after professional cleaners. The answer is no. They generally tend to vacuum your rugs thoroughly before and after steam cleaning. But again, it’s good to check with the cleaners. If you have any heavy furniture that sits on your cleaned rugs, it’s a good idea to have something to place under its’ legs. Wooden or metal furniture can leave blemishes on freshly cleaned rugs and carpets.
