Evansville, as with most cities, offers many carpet cleaning options once you’ve decided to hire a professional. This article will provide you with a list containing questions that you can ask to help determine which carpet cleaner is right for you. Continue?
1. What is your preferred method of cleaning carpets
Hot Water Extraction is the preferred method for carpet cleaning by carpet manufacturers. It is also known as “steam cleaning” and it is the industry standard. The carpet is also cleaned using a cleaning agent and vacuumed.
Low-moisture cleaning, also known as “dry” cleaning or shampooing, is another option. It is not recommended for residential carpet cleaners. The HOST machine can be rented at local shops. Although low-moisture can improve the look of your carpet, it will not remove any contaminants (pet wastes or bacteria), which can cause carpet damage for you and your loved ones. Because there is no flushing action, heavier sediments such as sand, can remain behind and grind away at the carpet fibers. This can cause a decrease in carpet life. Low-moisture cleaning may be helpful for maintaining commercial carpets, but HWE is the best option when cleaning your carpet at home.
2. Are you using Truckmount Equipment?
This refers the actual machine that a carpet cleaning service will use to clean your carpets. Some cleaners bring an electrically powered machine into your home or place it outside. These “portable” units are not able to provide the same heat and rinsing as truckmount units.
These portable vacuums may pollute the air inside your house, since they do not filter the air and can blow the contaminated air into your home.
A “truckmount” machine, which is permanently mounted in a cleaner’s van, runs on its own power supply. Truckmount machines can provide heat, vacuum, flushing and vacuum to deep clean carpets. Truckmount equipment is the best choice for carpet cleaning.
3. How long will it take my carpets drying?
This is a common question and very important. Know how long you have to wait before you can walk on carpets. Long drying times are not just an inconvenience but also a sign of how clean your carpets have been. The soil is liquified before being vacuumed in HWE (steam cleaning). This is why it is so important to make sure that all moisture is removed. The truth is that dirt is more likely to remain in carpets that are wetter than they are. Mold and mildew can also grow in carpets if left to wetter carpets for longer periods of time. Drying times between 1 and 2 hours are ideal, while 6 to 8 hour drying times are common. Anything longer than that is unacceptable.
