Choosing the best carpet and upholstery cleaner
How do you know if you are choosing the best carpet and upholstery cleaner? Simply put look for someone trusted and local.
Rather than look for the cheapest quote on Facebook, I’d suggest you do a little research. Why you might ask? Well, when you purchase carpets or rugs, fabric or leather sofas or when you install a beautiful ceramic or limestone floor, you usually do your research and shop around for the best supplier who will offer you the best product, price, service and experience. It won’t surprise you to learn that’s why retailers such as John Lewis and Marks and Spencer consistently score in the top 10 rankings every year for their service and experience.
Often when it comes to choosing the best carpet and upholstery cleaner for these valuable items we don’t know what to look for? Hopefully by the end of this blog you’ll have a good starting point.
First of all ask yourself can the organisation you are considering letting into your home or onto your site and loose on your soft furnishing or hard floor demonstrate that they have the Reputation, Experience, Education, Systems and Security in place to deliver what they say they can deliver? Ask some or all of the following questions :
- Do you offer a free onsite survey or will you give me a price over the telephone?
- If you are giving me a price over the telephone what is that based on as you haven’t seen the items or area I am asking you to clean, will it change once you come to clean?
- What method of cleaning will you use?
- Can you guarantee to get the stains out?
- Will you move furniture?
- How long will it take and how long will it take to dry?
- Are you certified and insured and who by?
- Can you provide me with copies of your certification and insurance documentation?
- What happens if I’m not satisfied with the work?
Once you have the answers to all of these questions check them out, see if they are members of trade associations or have certifications. Are they listed on the National Carpet Cleaners Association’s Trust Local Cleaners website?
