Don’t Be Fooled By The Cheap Carpet Cleaning Prices!

How many carpet cleaning coupons have you seen in the paper or pop up online?  $9.95 a room!  $34.95 for five rooms!  Sounds great doesn’t it?!  There are two things to ask yourself when you see something like this.  Is this too good to be true and what’s the catch?  It is too good to be true and I will tell you why.
How often do you dust your house.  When you dust, do you wipe over everything real quick and move on?  No, you take time to get it clean.  If you have 6-12 months of dirt and grime in your carpets how long do you think it would take to have them cleaned properly?  The IICRC (The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) suggest that for a normal size bedroom (140sqft) should take no less than 15 minutes to clean it properly.  If you were to have three bedrooms, a living room, and a dining room carpet cleaned, the minimum time to get it clean would be an hour and a half.  That is for the extraction only.  To have your carpet cleaned properly the steps the IICRC suggest are: 1) Dry vacuum, most of the large debris is extracted then.  2) Apply cleaning agent, allow 10 minutes to break down grime.  3) Agitate carpet and cleaning agent.  4) Extract (Hot water extraction).  5) Rake carpet fibers.  6) Let dry for 2-4 hours, if wet any longer may cause molding and mildew.  If you do not receive this care when your carpets are being cleaned, you are only getting wet floors and spot may come back.  The minimal time to do the job stated above would take no less than 2-2 1/2 hours.  From the business side, charging $9.95 a room you end up making less than $8 an hour at the most, after paying for all that it takes to run a business.  You don’t stay in business for long just making $8 an hour.  So how are they staying in business?  You don’t end up paying $9.95 a room, they will charge you 50, 60, up to 75% more to clean your carpet properly.
