If you are like me, you are thinking of hiring a professional carpet cleaner for the first time. The thought of it makes me a little nervous, as I really don’t want to have my carpet look dirty. I also don’t know how to tell whether my carpets are clean or not.
The first thing you should do is take a piece of carpet and have it cleaned by a carpet cleaner. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, just some effort on your part. Have someone else come over to help you with some light mopping, or move something around if you need to. The point is to give yourself a good, clean look.
If you already know that your carpets are cleaned regularly by professional carpet cleaners, then your next step is to come home to your carpet. Check the edges for any signs of water spots, and leave it open and damp if possible. Wait a few days to see if any black spot comes out.
Ask your professional carpet cleaners if they would mind if you did a spot test. If there is any dirt in the carpet, let them know and they will clean it. It really is that simple.
Also, keep track of what you do to your carpets to make sure you are cleaning them correctly. For example, put a coat of wax or polish on all carpets at least once a year, and don’t use any harsh chemicals on them unless instructed to do so.
If you do get a stain, a good idea is to ask for advice from your professional cleaners. They might suggest applying some bleach or vinegar to get the stain out. Your stains are usually pretty easy to get out and not a lot of work if you follow their instructions.
The best way to make sure your carpets are cleaned well is to maintain them properly. Use mild detergents on carpets that have dirt or stains. Always vacuum your carpets and vacuuming them on a regular basis will make sure your carpets are as clean as they can be.
Hiring professional carpet cleaners might seem like an investment, but the investment in time and money will be worth it. This is an opportunity to have clean carpets in your home, especially if you live in an area where people frequently move. I think it is worth it for sure!
