How to Find the Best Commercial Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Company
Finding the right commercial carpet and upholstery cleaning company can be challenging but a reputable, professional company working for your facility is important. The right choice will provide peace of mind and confidence about the quality of service provided. However, not all cleaners are alike. The difference in the quality of service from one cleaning service to another can be significant! As tempting as it may sound, try to refrain from picking a carpet and upholstery cleaning company based on price. The old adage is still true; you get what you pay for. So how do you go about choosing the right commercial carpet and upholstery cleaning company?
The following are a few guidelines that can help in your decision making:
- Educated, trained and professional staff: Carpet cleaning is a changing field. The best cleaners constantly improve the services they offer. Make sure the cleaning company you choose is professionally trained and that they training is updated on a regular basis. It takes years of experience, training, and exposure to different carpet and furniture products, as well as unique soiling conditions to clean carpets and upholstery correctly.
- Associated with Professional Organizations: The cleaning company should be IICRC Certified (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certified Professionals). IICRC is the cleaning, restoration and flooring industry's certification and standard-setting organization. Other societies or organizations may also add to the credibility of the company. You can visit CertifiedCleaners.org and choose "Locate a Pro" to find an IICRC business in your area. If you have a specific company in mind, you can even search its name to find out whether it is certified.
- References: Professional carpet cleaning companies should be able to provide you with a list of satisfied clients and their phone numbers. Find out how many years they have worked with those clients. A long business relationship is a good indicator that the cleaning company provides high quality and excellent service.
- Cleaning Methods: Commercial cleaners should provide different cleaning methods. Hot water extraction, dry shampoo, dry compound and high flow extraction all require different types of equipment. Most office buildings and facilities require multiple cleaning methods and equipment to meet their specific needs so make sure the cleaning company can meet your needs.
- Chemicals: Look for a carpet cleaning company that uses non-toxic, Green Sustainable solutions. These cleaning agents should be safe for all types of upholstery and help your fabrics stay as clean as when they were new.
- Price: When you try to save money you will lose on quality and your attempt at saving could possibly cost more money in the end. Beware of misleading advertising and sales claims. The price you see offered may not be for the services you actually want, or need. A professional will want to pre-inspect your carpet. There are many variables to consider so be prepared to meet with the technician to get an analysis of the facility. Companies promising carpet and upholstery cleaning at unbelievably low prices are prevalent these days. If you think they are too good to be true, you are probably right.
Most often, the highly qualified professional cleaners in the industry are not in the yellow pages. Most successful commercial carpet and upholstery carpet cleaning services work on a word of mouth referral basis and by directly marketing to property and facility managers.
Good carpet appearance can increase customer confidence and boost sales. Having freshly cleaned carpeting creates a positive impression. Clean carpets will also save your business money, while promoting a healthier working environment. If you clean your carpets on a program maintenance basis you will extend the life of the carpet, prolonging expensive replacement. With selective due diligence, it is possible to find the right commercial carpet and upholstery cleaning company to keep your office carpet and furniture clean all year long.
