I would recommend first getting a proposal from an professional Dublin based carpet cleaning company. Remember to get a company that actually comes out to your home ahead of time to look over the job. This shows that they are a professional company and are willing to invest some time in you, the consumer before they collect any money. This also gives you a chance to try them on for size as well. Ask some questions to find out not just about their cleaning methods but what kind of people will be coming out to your house. Also remember you are inviting these individuals into your Dublin home, maybe even into your bedroom.
A company that conducts drug tests and background checks is preferable to one that doesn’t. I personally would like to be assured that a criminal isn’t cleaning in my bedroom. A drug-free environment at work helps avoid a lot of potential problems on the job.
Now let’s talk about how to best clean your carpeting. The best way to clean a carpet is to select a carpet cleaner that has a rinse included with their method. A rinse is healthy and the rinsing carries away the dirt and materials deposited in the carpeting over the course of the time in between cleanings. I prefer a truck-mounted cleaning system. A truck-mounted cleaning system is like it says, the machine is mounted in the truck. These larger machines do a better job of not only flushing the soils from the carpeting but also removing more of the moisture from the carpeting giving you clean carpeting that dries within 24 hours.
Carpeting cleaned with this method is damp after cleaning. Water does not damage nylon. Carpet manufacturers not only recommend hot water extraction every 12 months, they require the carpeting to be cleaned with hot water extraction to be performed every 18 months to maintain the carpeting’s warranty. So don’t be afraid of water. Wool is also safe to clean with water. Ever see a sheep worried about the rain? Wool and the proper amount of moisture are fine. I would recommend an experienced company for any of your fine wool rugs.
Spot and spill removal are also important. Professional cleaners usually have a spotting kit and have training in how to use this kit. This is not to say all spots can be removed, some spots are not spots but stains. The difference between a spot and a stain is a spot can be removed and a stain is permanent. A professional cleaner, if made aware of what the spot originally came from, i.e. what was spilled in the carpet, has a greater chance of getting a spot out. So when doing a pre-inspection with your professional cleaner of choice inform him/her of what made the spot, it might help.
Choosing anyone to work in your home can always be a little heart wrenching but if you take the time to explore more than just the price you will find that while the price is important, hiring a quality company will not only save you money in the long run but maybe a few headaches along the way.
