Hiring a Carpet Cleaning Company

If you are not one for doing it yourself, then consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning service. Most carpet cleaning companies offer a range of services, including complete carpet cleaning, spot cleaning, and odor removal. But not all companies have the same level of service or method of cleaning.

There are four methods for residential carpet cleaning; shampooing, foam cleaning, dry cleaning, and steam cleaning. Most companies specialize in one so be sure to learn more about their techniques. There are pros and cons to each method, so be sure to understand the differences between them before hiring a cleaning company. The price of a professional carpet cleaning varies quite a bit from company to company so be sure to get quotes from a handful of different service providers. Generally, $40 to $55 per room is a reasonable price. Ask the cleaning company to provide a free quote before hand.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Considerations:

  • Saves time and effort - When you hire a professional all of the hard work is done for you. A carpet cleaning service can move your furniture, clean the carpets until they look new again and even put the furniture back in place.
  • Professional quality - It?s hard to match the quality of a professional carpet cleaning. Carpet cleaning services are pros in restoring your carpet to like-new condition. When doing the cleaning yourself, the results are usually not as good.
  • More expensive - Professional carpet cleaning is more expensive than performing the project yourself but may not be nearly as much as you think it is especially if you don't own a carpet cleaning machine and need to rent or buy one.
  • Risk of damage with DIY - If you don?t understand the proper cleaning techniques, you can risk permanently damaging your carpet. Common mistakes include over-wetting, which can lead to mold and mildew, and using too much cleaning detergent, which can actually lead to faster resoiling.

The easiest way to make a decision is to figure out the cost of DIY (time, product, machine rentals, etc) vs. hiring a professional carpet cleaning service. To get a better idea of the cost consider reaching out to a handful of carpet cleaning companies and getting free quotes to compare each service provider.
