When you look for a carpet cleaner you have two main choices. You can hire the big local cleaning company or you can hire an independent owner and operator. Read this short article and learn about why you should choose an independent carpet cleaner over that big company in the area.

There are many reasons to choose an independent carpet cleaner over the big local carpet cleaner. The biggest reason is experience. Although that large company might have been in business for years, how long have their employees been carpet cleaning. This industry is unfortunately a high turnover one and if you want someone who has years of experience you are usually not going to find that at a large company. Another reason to choose an independent over a large company is the fact that an independent will usually pay closer attention to the details and spend more time on the job. They have more stake in the job than some college kid working his way thorough school. They are looking to build a business and therefore appreciate and will work harder for your business. Also do not underestimate the benefit of the owner being on every cleanin job. The last reason to choose an independent is to support local business. Is that large company based here? Are they a franchise that is sending much of their money out of the area. When you hire a local independent cleaner you can be sure that you are supporting your local community by using someone who actually lives in the community.

As you hopefully can see, there are many many reasons to use a local carpet cleaner. I hope that one of these reasons has rung a bell with you and that you will take my advice and hire an independent carpet cleaning company. Good luck with whatever you decide.

How Often Should Carpet Cleaning, be Cleaned, by a Professional?

The IICRCEnvironment NormalConditions DustyOutside ColdClimates Highmonthsmonths* has stated in the Standard for Carpet Cleaning that “Consumers must not wait until carpet looks soiled before cleaning. Experts agree that clean carpet contributes not only to the overall aesthetics of a structure, but plays a significant role in the healthful state of the overall environment in which people spend the majority of their time.”
The United States EPA in a letter dated January, 1989 (referenced in the IICRC Carpet Cleaning Standard*) included the following information to serve as a guideline for cleaning frequencies for carpet from a health perspective.


*What is the IICRC Carpet Cleaning Standard?
This Industry Standard was developed to define the minimum standards for carpet care by a task force with input from DuPont, the EPA, Shaw Industries, ASCAR, BASF Fibers, the Carpet and Fabricare Institute, the Carpet Manufacturers Association, S.C.
