Use a Reputable Company with Good References.
Whether it’s a small project or a whole-house carpet cleaning job, I’ve had the best experiences with businesses that I trust. Now, references are essential before I hire anyone.
…and finding a trusted and qualified carpet cleaner isn’t always easy.
The good news is that free online resources can help you. Home Advisor is a free service that connects homeowners to their trusted network of carpet cleaners and other home improvement specialists.
In addition, now Amazon even screens service providers before you hire them. Who knew?
You can find any type of service you need, from carpet cleaners to electricians to plumbers to painters and more. Amazon even connects you to people who will clean your house or assemble furniture for you. Check out their list.
Now that there is more demand for all natural cleaning products and organic carpet cleaners, we don’t have to rely on a single company. We can pick the best company that we want to use.
And, of course, more vendors means greater competition, which in turn brings down the price. I love that!
Compare Carpet Cleaning Services to Get the Best Price:
I’ve learned from past experience that I don’t want to procrastinate on carpet cleaning jobs. The sooner the better, and regular maintenance is key for keeping carpets lasting longer (another money-saving tip I learned the hard way).
And I definitely don’t want to spend time searching for the perfect contractor to do the work. =)
However, if we get quotes from a few different carpet cleaners, we instantly are in a better position to negotiate a lower price and a better deal as well. Using a free service online, I can save myself lots of time – and money.
Don’t Waste Your Money:
One of the worst feelings is to find out later that you got ripped off. (We’ve all been there.) As customers, we simply want a professional to get the job done for us. Choose experienced carpet cleaners who have positive client feedback. You’ll end up paying less in the long run.
Once you have found a high-quality cleaning service, your work is done! Whether you need to hire for ongoing service or a one-time job, having a reliable resource in your database makes it much easier for the next time your need your carpets cleaned.
Why Hire a Carpet Cleaner?
Many homeowners use professional carpet cleaning companies to freshen of their home or make it look better if they plan to put it on the market to sell. There are more benefits than just “looking good” though.
Deep cleaning or shampooing carpets can minimize dust mites, get rid of pet urine smells and reduce the allergens in your home which can affect sensitive people. Plus, when cleaned on a regular basis, carpets tend to last longer as well. Note: Consider using ultrasonic pest control if you have a recurring mouse or spider problem.
Organic Carpet Cleaning
AngiesList says that some people use combination of vinegar, borax and salt, and these natural products even work well on tougher stains.
Alternatively, you can purchase pre-made natural solutions made by companies like Simple Green, Biokleen and Earthworm. They are not expensive, and many are sold online through sites like Amazon.com.
