If you’re thinking about having your carpets cleaned in Langford, 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 Langford – 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 Langford is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are eight tough questions to ask a carpet cleaner in Langford 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.
Oriental and Area Rug Cleaning:
Benefits: Because of the dense pile construction of area rugs, dirt particles work their way down through the fibers - to the backing foundation of the rug where they cannot be removed by ordinary vacuuming. This loose grit wreaks havoc on your rug’s delicate fibers, causing a cutting abrasive action as you walk on the rug. Abrasion accounts for fiber loss (wear) and embedded soil stains.
Other types of soil including food particles and pet oils “hide” in the dense pile, making your rugs an ideal haven for germs, bacteria, and other nasty creatures such as dust mites! Dust mites are too small to be seen but are the most common cause of year-round allergy and asthma. They live in mattresses, pillows, carpets, rugs, furniture, bedcovers, and clothes – anywhere they can feed on dead flakes of human skin. All foreign pollutants in your rugs should be removed by professional cleaning on a regular basis to keep your rugs “healthy”.
