Whenever you look for a company to perform a service inside of your home, you want to find the best candidate for the job. The first step is finding several different options to compare side-by-side. Perform an internet search for local carpet cleaners, ask family and friends for recommendations, or pay attention to advertisements in the paper or on television. Once you’ve compiled a list of possibilities, it is time to start asking the right questions.
Certification and Training
Whatever cleaning company you choose, they should hire only technicians who are certified to perform the work. If they do not follow this rule, you should not trust them. Cross them off of your list. Every carpet cleaner in the company should be certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. Depending on your situation, you should also look for certifications like Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician, Rug Cleaning Technician, Carpet Repair and Re-installation Technician, or Water Damage Restoration Technician. Ensure that the carpet cleaners have been educated in their field, so they can be trusted with your carpet.
Experience, Recommendations, Reviews
Always ask your company how long they have been cleaning carpets and seek out reviews online. Experience is not everything, but you should make sure that the company you choose is established in the area with evidence that they do a great job. Reviews on Google or other review sites are helpful in determining how satisfied customers are with the company and the job that they do. Recommendations from family and friends are invaluable. Getting reviews from people you know you can trust is always better than trusting what may or may not be a real customer online.
Licensed and Insured
A trustworthy company will be licensed through the state that you live in. Ask the company you are considering if they are licensed. If you want to double-check their answer, you should be able to look up cleaning licenses on your state’s website. Make sure that you research how a carpet cleaning company should be licensed first, so you know if the company is properly licensed.
The company you choose should also be insured with liability and workman’s compensation insurance. That way if an accident was to happen in your home, you could trust that the insurance company would pay out money to deal with the problem.
