Seeing how quickly dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate on a carpet that is walked on often by people and pets can be truly astonishing. If not cleaned regularly, it can start to affect your mood and health. However, not everyone has the time, equipment, or knowledge to deep clean. Therefore it’s imperative to work with a professional carpet cleaner after getting up to speed on the process.

To achieve this objective, Preferred Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care has created the ultimate guide to carpet cleaning. It includes common mistakes you should avoid, essential things to consider, the myths surrounding the industry, and frequently asked questions (FAQs) about carpet cleaning. After reading this short but insightful guide, you will feel confident to make informed decisions about your carpet cleaning needs.

Three things to look for in a professional:

1. Reputation
The first thing to look for is if the company has the experience and qualified technicians to do the job correctly. You should always research and get referrals for the company you want to hire for the job.

2. Expectations
Look for ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on the firm’s website. Also, ask the prospective company representative or technician questions about the outcome of the finished job.

3. Price
You should have an idea of the average rate for carpet cleaning services in your area by getting a few estimates from local companies.

Common Mistakes:

1. Choosing the cheapest option
Customers often focus on the price. However, cheaper is not always the best option! Remember the old saying, “you get what you pay for,” as it definitely comes into play here. It would help if you instead looked for a good quality company with a reasonable price that stands behind their work.

2. Too high expectations
Customers often have higher expectations than a company can deliver, for example, requesting a cleaning technician to make an old worn-out carpet look pristine instead of replacing it.

3. Not replacing old carpets
Homeowners that look to sell their houses often attempt to clean old carpets instead of replacing them, which prevents them from making a quick sale.


What is the price of the job?
The price of the job varies depending on the size and how many areas need to be cleaned. It also depends on how soiled each surface has become.

How do you price the job?
Most residential homes are priced by the area or number of rooms, while Commercial properties tend to be priced by square footage. Companies also have special package deals for specific jobs.

Biggest Myth
On a final note, a perpetuating myth in the carpet cleaning industry is that technicians can make ANY carpeted floor look brand new. However, while we strive for perfection on every job, some carpeted floors are beyond the capability of our expertise or equipment.
