Finding the best possible carpet cleaning service is not difficult if you are equipped with the right information and know exactly what to look out for. Commercial cleaning is indeed the best option, though it can be a tad expensive. This is one of the many reasons why people avoid it. You need to know that it doesn't need to be done on a monthly basis, every six months is good enough.

How to Choose a Good Commercial Service?

It is easy to find one through advertisements either in the newspaper, or through pamphlets and business cards, but you need to be sure of their efficiency. Here are some tips on choosing the right one.
  • Reputation: Choose a service that has a good reputation and name in the business. You do not want a service that will damage your carpet with the chemicals that can do more harm than good. Pay extra money to get a good service, and remember to ask for references from the service provider. The best way to acquire a good service is to ask friends who have used them in the past and are happy with it.
  • Period in Business: You need to find out how long the business has been in existence. Avoid businesses that are too new, try to get a franchise, these are set in the business, know everything and can be trusted with your expensive carpets.
  • Cleaning Methods: Inquire about the cleaning equipment and the chemicals used by them. You do not want to have your carpet ruined by the wrong process or wrong kind of chemicals, just to save some money.
Get The Facts Right

If you are considering a water-based cleaning service over dry cleaning, then you need to know certain things. You need to know the kind of backing the carpet has-permeable or impermeable, how is it affixed to the floor, what type of yarn is used-loop pile or cut pile and, what fiber is the carpet made of-nylon or olefin. Once these questions have been answered appropriately, you can choose the right kind of service. And if the water cleaning service is better for your carpet then so be it, as most carpet cleaners think this method gives better results than dry cleaning.

Be very careful while choosing the water cleaning process as the more water that is used in the carpet the more of it can get left behind in the carpet causing a lot of problems like molding, stretching, and damage to the adhesive.

So, before you go and hand over your carpet to a commercial service, do all your research. After all you do not want your expensive carpet ruined by inexperienced carpet cleaners who do not know what they are doing. And remember, this method is not a substitute to buying a new carpet or to regular cleaning. It is just one way of keeping your carpet clean.
