Over the last 18 years we have done a lot of carpet cleaning in Missouri. The one thing that has changed is the types of cleaning methods that are available. We wanted to let our customers know that we use the best and most recommended cleaning process. Which is done with a truck-mounted steam cleaning system. Over the last 5 to 10 years there has been quite a few new companies start up.
When it comes to carpet cleaning Missouri, experience is very important and having the proper products and equipment makes a big difference. If you have a carpet with a warranty on it you may have to use a Approved Service Provider for the Carpet and Rug Institute and a company that is a certified firm with the IICRC or the Clean Trust.
Possible problems with carpet cleaners
The problem we see with most newer carpet cleaning companies is that they are focused on getting new customers and not on the quality of work they are performing. Most newer companies with have a reason why they don’t use a truck-mounted steam cleaning system, since the cost of one can be 10 times higher than a portable set of equipment. And the cost of maintaining and running one is much higher.
We have been cleaning carpet in the St. Louis area for a long time and have experience with all the cleaning methods available, but the only one that thoroughly cleans and keeps the carpet clean much longer is hot water extraction performed using a large truck-mounted steam cleaning system. We use the best and greenest cleaning and rinsing products that are available and are certified with the IICRC and an Approved Service Provider for the Carpet and Rug Institute.
Keeping your carpet clean.
Making the carpet look clean right after cleaning is a very easy thing to do. It is keeping the carpet clean till it gets resoiled that is the bigger challenge. When a inexperienced carpet cleaning company cleans a carpet it may look clean right after the process is done, but in many cases it will start looking worse right away. This is due to a couple of problems. First, most cheaper and newer carpet cleaning companies will use cheaper cleaning products. These can leave a sticky residue behind. And since they are often times using under powered or even portable equipment a good portion of the dirty water is left in the carpet which will dry and resoil the carpet right away. You may also have spots left in the carpet. These may have been removed by a certified and experienced technician.
Why a Certified Carpet Cleaner may be better.
We go to new customers homes almost everyday. And have them point out spots that the last cleaning company was not able to remove that we get right out. If you have had any of these experiences with another company. Don’t let that discourage you from trying another company to clean your carpets. It is a good idea to do some research. And make sure the company has been around for awhile and has a great track record. If we can help you with any of your carpet cleaning needs.
