For most of us at home our carpets are our pride and joy. They’re one of the first things somebody sees when entering our home. No wonder that we want them to be clean and neat at all times.
However we often realize that finding a good carpet cleaning service is quite challenging. When we know there is a guest coming soon, we rush to have a good cleaning done. This is when we quickly call various services and ask for prices and how fast can they do the job. And this is where most of us fail and get a bad job done to our carpets.
Looking for cheap carpet cleaning proves to be often times the wrong way to go about. We’re saving money in one place only to realize later on that we have to spend more on buying a new piece or needing a better cleaning service as the previous one failed us.
There is a fierce competition out there between the various cleaners out there and most of them are undercutting on price so they get most customers. However this means that they get a rush job done quite badly, since they are not getting paid enough.
So when you want to hire a carpet cleaning crew, don’t go for the cheapest one, but go for the one which has the best reviews all around. Ask your friends, ask your neighbours, ask your relatives and get references from them. If somebody had good experiences with these services, they’ll be quick to tell you, so you will be safe in the knowledge that you get a good service for a decent price, and you won’t get a rush-rush job that will destroy your floor covering in the process.
If you ask me, however, I’ve found the best solution last year and never looked back. Instead of employing any of these services (that cost a mini fortune, let’s be honest), I bought my own little McCulloch steam cleaner and I’m using that to clean all my floor coverings. Not only that but I can also clean with it upholstery, window coverings and even garments. And while initially there was an upfront investment when I bought it, I don’t have to keep paying every time I need my carpets cleaned. All I need to do is take out my steam cleaner and do the job in a jiffy.
