If you are looking for  professional office cleaners you will find there are a lot of carpet cleaning companies out there.  Read the adverts and you notice none of them will suggest they are the second best cleaners.  Why would they? But by following the tips we give later in the article you will discover how to find the right carpet cleaner to fit your needs.

Taking a few minutes to look at the different types of cleaning carpets options and the particular type of carpet you have in your offices or home will enable you to make the right decision. You will find that there are a number of different carpet cleaning methods which all have their own advantages and of course disadvantages.  Not all cleaning companies will take the time to explain the disadvantages of the method they want to use on your carpet. You need to know them.  For example a dry extraction type of clean will use a powder chemical which can be massaged into the fibres of the carpet bonding with the dirt or stains and “pulling” them away from the fibres to make them easy to vacuum away.

Cleaners also sometimes opt to use a wet clean (sometimes sold as “steam cleaning” but usually just hot water) which involves spraying a diluted chemical extraction fluid under pressure deep into the fibres. The area will then be massaged by the hand-held lance or the metal bars of the machine to enable the cleaning chemical to bind around the dirt and allow it to be vacuumed out. Introducing a water spray like this will often result in a far deeper clean but leaves the carpet slightly damp and introduces risk of carpet shrinkage.

Unless you already have a firm relationship with a cleaning company you already use get a number of estimates.  Even then, it does not harm to make sure they are not overcharging you. Make sure you know why they are choosing to use THEIR particular cleaning method on YOUR office carpet. Demand they give you official safety data sheets for all the chemicals they are using and read them to look at dangers to your staff etc.  Does the cleaning chemical contravene your company environmental policy? How long will the process take and when can you use the room again?

You should always check out who is coming into your home or office. Not all cleaning companies carry out reference checks on employees. Ask about public liability insurance and employee cover.  If they make a mistake on your premises you need to know about who is liable for compensation.  Quality professional carpet cleaners will not be afraid to show you a copy of the insurance certificate.

Follow the above tips, and you’ll have no problems with finding the right carpet cleaner.

Many of your staff may suffer from allergy problems without knowing about it. That dirty carpet could be holding dust mites and allergies that make them sick and unable to work at full capacity. The cleaning of the office carpet may result in higher productivity so it could pay for itself in work done afterwards.
