What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
#1: Do NOT wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.

No. Dirt is an abrasive – like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet, you grind dirt into your carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet, just as if you used a knife, causing it to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps – by itself it’s simply not enough. The longer you wait to have your carpet cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.

skin, clothing and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals, pollens and bacteria wind up you guessed it – in your carpet.

#2: The only reason to clean carpets is to get the dirt out.

No. As you probably know, outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust – and hundreds of other chemicals. When you and your family members come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your 

If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems – one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus, and chemicals in your carpet.

In addition, as you may know, tobacco smoke contains over 4000 different chemical compounds, 43 of which cause cancer. And even if you don’t smoke, those chemicals get in your shoes, you track them in to your home and leave them in your carpet.

If you’re sensitive to cigarette smoke, you might find that you’ll breathe easier after you hire a company to get those harmful chemicals out of your carpet.

So in addition to getting rid of dirt, another important reason to clean your carpet is to get rid of pollens, fungus, bacteria, chemicals and the tars and residue from tobacco smoke.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Ask questions. The way you learn about a company is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to the answers. Here are the some questions I suggest you ask:

  1. What method of carpet cleaning do you recommend?
  2. What type of equipment do you use to clean carpet?
  3. What does your equipment remove from my carpet?
  4. What type of chemicals do you use? Are they safe?
  5. How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
  6. What training and experience does the person coming to my home have?
  7. Are you a member of any trade associations and if so which ones?
  8. Are you certified by the IICRC and will you show me your certificate?
  9. Do you guarantee your work?
  10. Do you have general liability insurance and workers compensation?
Once you’re satisfied that you’re working with an honest, competent professional, invite him into your home and ask for a specific quotation in writing. A written quotation gives you the assurance that you know exactly what your job will cost – no surprises.
