How to select a carpet cleaner

November 28, 2011

‘Tis the holiday season, and to that end, so begins the annual flood of news and press telling consumers the “best” way to select a carpet cleaning professional. Here’s a selection from Cincinnati.com:

  To extend the life of your carpet and to help remove allergens and dirt from your home, most major carpet manufacturers recommend you have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year.

The challenge for many homeowners, though, is knowing just who to hire. There are a variety of cleaning methods available and not all of them are acceptable to some carpet manufacturers. Many will not honor the carpet’s warranty to cover damage if their specified cleaning method is not followed. From Cincinnati.com.
