Why hire a carpet pro? Because whether you need an emergency cleaning to get rid of serious spots and stains, a thorough cleaning when moving out or moving in, or a thorough annual cleaning, there are at least 5 good reasons to hire a carpet pro for your wall-to-wall carpets.


1. Because When You Have Carpets, Carpet Cleaning is Unavoidable.

Wall-to-Wall CarpetWall-to-Wall Carpet

Studies have shown that a wall-to-wall carpet acts like a sink, trapping allergens so they do not become airborne.If the carpet is not thoroughly cleaned at least on an annual basis, it can become saturated and will begin to release those allergens.

It helps to vacuum regularly but the amount of dirt and debris that can accumulate in the carpet fibers necessitates a thorough and professional carpet cleaning on a regular basis. It is important to hire a carpet pro for the job.

2. Because A Professional Carpet Cleaning Technician Knows Carpets.

There are many different types of carpet floor coverings available. The professionally trained carpet technician is schooled in all types of carpet textiles and has the knowledge necessary to know what cleaning method would be appropriate for each type.

When you hire a carpet pro, the technician has acquired the ability to assess the situation and then take appropriate action. The goal is always to bring back the appearance of your carpet to as new as possible.

3. Because A Professional Carpet Cleaning Technician Is Experienced In Dealing With All Types of Spots and Stains.

The carpet cleaning technician has the education and the experience to understand all the different types of spots and stains that can appear on your carpet and the proper method for removing them.

The technician will also be able to determine if spots or stains (and some odors) are permanent and may even suggest replacement.

4. Because A Carpet Professional Possesses and Uses
The Best Equipment.

A carpet cleaning company must acquire and maintain the latest high quality equipment that will easily and quickly do a thorough job.

With a high standard of equipment, the technician can then fully concentrate on doing the best job possible.

5. Because A Professional Carpet Cleaning Technician Can Assure Harmful Bacteria and Germs Will Be Removed From the Carpet.

This is one of the best reasons to hire a carpet pro. With top quality equipment, bacteria, dirt, and germs will be removed with powerful extraction and will dry as quickly as possible.

This assures your carpets will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized and the quick drying will assure all excess water will be removed, preventing the growth of mold or mildew.
