Warning! Don’t Hire Any Carpet Cleaners Until You Read Below!

We’ve all seen them, they come on door hangers, in your mailbox and small weekly coupon magazines.

You will see a carpet cleaning company advertising a very small price for cleaning a room of carpet. You should be careful about anyone claiming to clean your carpets for $9.95 or $10.00 per room. Their coupons all have really small fine print containing only some of the hidden costs they try to charge you once they enter your home. Once there, they tell you it will be much higher than the $9.95 a room, because the $89.95 a room coupon is just for their basic cleaning. And your carpets will not come clean with just their basic cleaning process, in order to get it clean they have to charge you for pre-treating the traffic lanes, the normal spots and so on and so on. Those two or three rooms end up costing you hundreds of dollars instead. Or worst yet, they don’t deliver on their promise, leaving you with dirty and musty smelling carpets.

While some carpet cleaning companies may claim they're professional carpet cleaners who use their "oxi-klean" chemicals; their cleaning equipment and methods used in their process should be avoided.

They need to be connected to your kitchen faucet, using up all your hot water and sometimes causing leaks. It also needs to be plugged into your wall, running up your electrical bill and sometimes blowing your circuit breakers. During the cleaning, all the dirty water it produces is commonly pumped into one of your kitchen or bathroom sinks. Due to its limited power using household 110 voltage, they do not have the cleaning ability as today’s modern van-mounted self-contained units have, a/k/a truck mounts. Portables end up either not removing enough of the dirt and soils form your carpet and or leave a sticky residue which causes a rapid re-soiling of the carpet.

The plastic tank on the handle is a add-on, in which a water based cleaning chemical is added and then flows down a plastic tube onto the carpet.

One method uses a heavy brush mounted on the bottom which scrubs the cleaning chemicals into the carpet, which does help loosen the dirt in the carpet. But the problems with it are, it is too aggressive to the carpet and secondly, it has no way of lifting the soils that it has loosened out of the carpet. The soils will still be there, just scrubbed deeper into the carpet.

The second method just adds a thin cotton pad underneath the brush that rubs the carpet after the cleaning solution is applied. The theory in this is, that the pad will remove all of the dirt, grit, soils and cleaning solution all at once. It can only lightly clean the surface of the carpet using the thin cotton pad. It’s similar to taking a towel and trying to clean your carpet.

I do not understand why any reputable carpet cleaning company would use these type machines! It might simply be because anyone with a few hundred dollars can purchase this type of equipment, with little or no training, and start using them the next day. It is really a cheap way to become a carpet cleaner.

As the owner and founder of Huck's Carpet Cleaning of O'Fallon, I’ve tried just about every kind of carpet cleaning method and type of equipment ever used in this industry, and the only one that I know that really cleans carpet is the “Hot Water Extraction” method, also known as (Steam Carpet Cleaning), or (truck mount carpet cleaning). If it wasn’t the best form of cleaning, why would we go out and spend $40,000-$60,000 per cleaning unit. You decide.
