With high foot traffic and increased chances of a spill or tear, a business is the one place where a carpet truly gets tested. To ensure that you are not having to replace your carpet every six months to a year, you need a quality carpet cleaning company. With the number of businesses offering commercial carpet cleaning, it’s hard to know which to choose.
To help you out, we’ve put together a checklist of what to look for when searching:
Do they ask questions?
While most of the questions will be coming from your side, they should not ALL be coming from you. A good cleaning company will ask questions about what you need, what type of carpet you have, the amount of use it gets, and so on. This proves that the company has experience and knows how to assess your needs. They’ll then know exactly what services to offer you.
Are they knowledgeable?
Is the company able to answer all of your questions? When asking questions, look for detailed answers. While you may not know all there is to carpet cleaning, you should feel comfortable in that the company you are talking to does know all there is, or at least most.
Is the company reliable?
One of the best ways to find this out is to contact them. Are you able to get through easily or is it a chore to try and talk to somebody about a consultation? Some companies may be busy and can’t answer right away, but they should get back to you in a timely manner.
Also, you should be able to schedule a consultation easily and trust that the technicians will adhere to the agreed-upon time. If it is hard to set up an appointment or the technicians are late, it might be time to check on a new company.
Is the company bonded, licensed, and insured? This shows that they take their business seriously and have spent the time, money, and resources to do prove this.
Are the consultations free?
Although not every company offers a free consultation, you should look for one. Companies that are confident in their product and service want your business, not just a fee for them to look at your carpet.
When can you use your carpet again?
Cleaning your carpet is a great way to keep up the appearance of your business, but if you can’t use it, what’s the point? Depending on the method used to clean your carpet, the drying process can vary in length. Speaking with the company about this before actually cleaning is a good idea. Quality companies may even have tricks to speed up the process or ideas on how to ensure the cleanliness isn’t compromised while still drying.
In the end, you will want to do your research on the company, their method of cleaning, and even the equipment being used. All of this information is easy to find with just a simple Google search for each topic and will help you greatly in choosing the best commercial carpet cleaning company.
