If you’re thinking about having your carpets cleaned in Colwood, we encourage you to follow these four steps:
STEP #1: Make a commitment to yourself to get your carpets cleaned. The longer they remain dirty, the sooner they’ll wear out. Plus, the longer you wait, the longer you’ll have to breathe all the pollen, fungus and chemicals that hide in your carpet.
STEP #2: List your objectives. Do you want only the dirt removed, something you could do with a rented shampooer? Or do you want all the bacteria, fungus, chemicals and dust mites removed—which will require a hot water truck-mount cleaner—as we use? Do you want to work with an honest, reputable company in Colwood – or are you willing to risk working with a company that offers you the lowest price – knowing that the company might not be in business tomorrow?
STEP #3: Ask questions. The way you learn about a company in Colwood is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are eight tough questions to ask a carpet cleaner in Colwood before he begins to clean your carpet:
1. What method of carpet cleaning do you recommend?
2. What type of equipment do you use to clean carpet?
3. What will your equipment remove from my carpet?
4. How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
5. What training have you had in cleaning carpets?
6. Are you certified by the IICRC and will you show me your certification certificates?
STEP #4: Once you’re satisfied that you’re working with an honest, competent professional, invite him into your Colwood home and ask for a specific quotation in writing. A written quotation gives you the assurance that you know exactly what your job will cost – no surprises.
By following these four steps, you’ll gain all the information you need to make an informed, intelligent decision.

Benefits: Dirt is like an abrasive – like sandpaper. Every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into the fibers. This cuts your carpet, just as if you had used a knife. This cutting causes your carpet to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps –by itself, it is not simply enough. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more irreversible damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out. Remember: A clean carpet is a healthy carpet, adding warmth and comfort to your family.
