How Much Does Carpet Cleaning Cost?
This is always going to be the number one question for businesses and homeowners “what are average carpet cleaning prices”. How much will it cost to clean the carpet in my office space? It can be a pretty wide range from .10 cents a sqr foot up to .50 cents a square foot and everything in-between.
Some of the variables carpet cleaners take in account when putting together an estimate.
- Long Term objectives
- Frequency per year
- Last time cleaned
- Condition of carpet and carpet style
- Type of soiling
- Parking and access
- Furniture moving
- Furniture versus wide open areas
Sometimes an owner intends on replacing soon and other times the carpet is newer and an owner/manager plans on keeping it for the next 10 years.
Terrific Customer Service Options
We often talk about the technical part of carpet cleaning but most homeowners and business managers are more interested in the customer service options when hiring carpet cleaners. Today we wanted to go over some customer service steps homeowners can request they might not be aware even exist.
Here are 7 options clients can request:
- Time of service update through text or app
- Sealing the entry door when bringing hoses in from van-based steam cleaning system
- Flexible days and time
- After service spot and spill guarantee
- Cleaning options of dry cleaning, shampooing or steam cleaning
- Gloves or masks
- Being aware of Pets, especially birds for homeowners
- Green cleaning detergents or even chemical free steam cleaning
What type of carpeting do you have? This can make a big difference on what is the best way to clean and maintain carpeted areas. The most common are Nylon, Olefin, Polyester and Wool. Some of this depends on the industry, polyester is far more common in apartment buildings, condo’s while nylon in class A office space, medical offices. Olefin is popular in almost any commercial space. Wool mostly higher end hotels, maybe financial service companies.
Each of these fibers have a pro and con to them and when we inspect and identify what a client has we can then provide a quote on the best maintenance plan. Some examples are:
- Olefin does not absorb water but really likes oil and oil based products. Also wears easiest in high traffic areas.
- Nylon is very resilient but prone to staining from beverage and food spills
- Wool absorbs water the most and can shrink if water is not extracted fully and dried properly
Each of these carpets pose different challenges to a carpet cleaner and why its important we inspect the areas.
Carpet Steam Cleaning or Shampooing, Low Moisture
A common question business owners and homeowners have before carpet cleaning is “which method is best?”. The most popular method by far is “steam cleaning”, also referred to as hot water extraction. The second is low moisture cleaning or what some people will call shampooing.
A better way to think about this question is each process has its pros & cons. There is no super-secret way to clean carpeting. Often it comes down to the skill of the operator and the specific carpet fiber.
Some fibers can absorb water much more than others, wool retains a lot of water after a cleaning for example and need to be careful. While olefin on the other hand barely retains water.
Vacuuming First is Critical
The first thing we wanted to point out is the first step before any wet cleaning is a thorough vacuuming. Most consumers don’t realize this but removing the dry grains of sand, hair, etc. is the most important step.
If you think about it, this makes perfect sense. Imagine adding water to a handful of dirt, what happens is it turns to mud. Exactly what can happen when cleaning a carpet or rug.
