I have used Stanley Steamer, Chem Dry, and many other companies. All did an ok job at cleaning my carpet but their prices were extremely high. I found this company and WOW! They used a machine called the Rotovac which you can see on their website. It cleaned my carpet better than any other company has ever done, it was dry faster than I could ever have imagined, and the best part is IT STAYED CLEAN after they left. None of the stains reappeared. I had them clean 3 bedrooms a hall and a stair case. When I saw their advertisement I figured the price was too good to worth any quality or they would show up and talk me into a price 3 times higher than the ad They gave me 2 options 4 rooms for $69 for steam cleaning with carpet cleaning agents lixed in the steam or 4 rooms for $99 if I had stains and high traffic areas that needed pre treated. Too make a long story short I took the $99 special and with the stair my total bill was only $127!Call them if you want really good cleaning for an unbelievable price.Tammy Shields
Great Company!!!!I have been a customer of All Seasons ChemDry for over three years for all of my carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning needs. My carpets always looks like new after All Seasons has been here and they dry so fast! The technicians that clean my carpet are always on time, very courteous and professional and do a great job. I have two dogs that shed a lot, you would never know it after All Seasons ChemDry has cleaned my carpets. I moved about two years ago to a house with all new carpeting, I hired them to spray the carpets with a protective coating and my carpets still look like new even with my two dogs and numerous spills by my children. All Seasons ChemDry is professionally run, they care about doing a superior job and hire only the best technicians. I would recommend All Seasons ChemDry any day!!!!!
If there is praise to be given out then it should go to A1 Steam Cleaning. I haven't had my carpets cleaned in many years and thought I would have to replace them. A friend told me about A1 and I called them to see what they could do for me. To my surprise the technicians said they could probably get 85% of the stains out but when they were done it looks 100% better. They saved me alot of money with their reasonable pricing and professional technicians. Certainly if you need your carpets cleaned properly and looking great then you need to call A1 Steam Cleaning of Las Vegas. Thank you A1 for making my home look and smell so good again.
I have a 12 year old German Shepherd and over the year he has caked up dirt, grime, and urine leaks. I had my carpet cleaned before. Looked good but the stains came back in 1 week. When I called turbo clean I was so excited with the customer service and when I met them even more excited at how professional and reliable they were! They cleaned the carpet with a fancy finish and it's now 6 months later with no problems. Somehow they were able to even get crime out of the carpet pad. Love these guy's!! I'm not an easy to please person. I complained my azz off at the last company I used.Will use again!Charles
WoW! After 13 years of wear and having a former girlfriend strip the seal of my marble kitchen & dining room floor, I never imagined that anyone could turn my marble floor into a showplace worthy of a royal palace. It cost me $600 but considering the careful way Glen Brow's team of 4 masked off all my cabinetry before starting the job and the results they gave me, I highly recommend Masterpiece Industries if you need any work done on marble or granite. The shine they gave me in my kitchen is now better than the original seal finish in my master bath that has exact same marble. Need I say more.
Andrew arrived at our home today to give us an estimate for the work we wanted Zerorez to perform. Our carpeting was new 4 years ago, and though we have no pets, there were spots definitely in need of HELP...like in front of the couch where we snack on cookies or crumbley things while watching TV ! ;-) It looks so much better!!! The bedroom area rug was brought back to life with beautiful colors. We are very pleased with Andrew's service which was done efficiently and respectfully by a fun, friendly professional. We will definitely recommend Zerorez for excellent service with a smile!
THE most awesome cleaning experience we have ever had. Service provider (Ryan Poole) was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable about the product and; as well as, the necessities of regular maintenance and service. He greatly excited us as we began to see, before our own eyes, the immaculate change that was occurring in our home. The renewed beauty and freshness has made us extraordinarily proud and will motivate us to further recommend Zerorez as THE go to carpet and tile cleaning company! Thank you to Mr. Poole and the Zerorez office staff for making this a truly pleasant undertaking.
new to vegas, just rented a house in the southwest area, got doctor carpet through yp.com, got 3 rooms and a large living room, the old renter left me with some beaten up couches but hey, free is the magic word, called a few carpet cleaning companies, eventually decided to go with these guys, same day service and i can say it was better than expected, the sofas came out almost new (still old sofas but couldn't ask for a bette result) and the house feels fresh, price is good, not the cheapest i'm sure but professional service cost a bit more so i'm good with that, well done dr. carpet.
I am a property manager and used Turbo Clean to clean a rental house that the tenant left in bad shape. They did a great job and the technician who cleaned the place was very friendly and clean!2 weeks later I rented the home. A week after the tenant moved in they called me and complained of an odor. I called Turbo Clean and at no charge they went out an deodorized the carpets and made me and my tenant very happy. I offered to pay them for their trip and service but the owner told me it was no charge! I will definitely be using them for all my rentals and personal homes.Angie
ErinCog was quite unhappy we went out of town and just spotted up our living room carpet. After reading reviews, I called Turbo Clean. After a pleasant conversation, an appointment was scheduled at my convenience the next day. Billy arrived promptly and got our carpets sparkling clean. i was very pleased with the results as both the dog urine and that black stuff from the roads all came clean. We thought we were going to have to replace the very expensive 4 year old carpet.I have their name and number in my address book and will be using Turbo Clean from now on. Great service.
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
- Apply a cleaning solvent directly on the stain, if needed, and allow it to soak in for a few seconds.
- Use a damp cloth to blot the spot. Don't scrub or apply too much pressure, as this might only further embed the stain into the carpet or rug.
- Rinse the cloth and continue blotting until the stain is removed.
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Why You Should Hire a Carpet Cleaner Service
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam Cleaning Carpets
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
What to Ask a Professional Service
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Decide Which Method to Use
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
Research Online or in Person
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Ask About Employees and Services Offered
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
Getting a Quote
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
Choosing a Carpet Cleaner
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Owning Your Own
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
- Attachments: Some models include special attachments that work on upholstery, stairs, bare floors, or small spaces.
- Brushes: Some units may not use a brush to agitate the carpet, while others might use a stationary one or multiple actuating brushes.
- Hose length: Bigger machines can be hard to maneuver around a room. Having a detachable hose of considerable length can make it easier to clean open spaces as well as more cramped areas.
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
