If you want to avoid entering the hosting hell dimension, here are 10 potential entertaining glitches, and how to avoid them.
My new puppy is in middle of pottytraining and he had a few accidents on my carpets. I called carpet cleaning Houston tx and explained to them my situation and they were very helpful on the phone. They came out the same day and I couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you for your service.
Easy to set-up service, kind customer service and the cleaners did an amazing job cleaning my home! It smells so clean, even after a week!
Thank you Imperial Restoration for everything you have done to help restore the homes and investments of Houston. Your staff is the golden standard. We are so grateful for everything you have done!
Poor work and poor attitude when called back to review her work. Argumentative about the dissatisfaction and quality of the service performed and reluctantly spent about 20 additional minutes so that she could be paid. Not a good experience as I had to spend over an hour myself re-cleaning
I definitely DO NOT recommend this company, their worker that goes by the name of "Ever Gonzales" did not only show up for my carpet cleaning he was extremely rude. Besides the awful carpet cleaning that he provided he kept making disgusting perverted comments. Please look else where, I also over heard him on the phone speak horribly to whomever was at the other end. I just wanted that man to leave my property.
Carpets are very important, but I know that I can always get mine cleaned without a big hassle. Thanks!
I have been using Molly Maid for several years and would give my team a 5 star rating. I am obviously quite pleased with Julieta and Adiana.
The owner did her own review- RED FLAG (and kind of ironic that 2 of the other Review-ees have only left reviews for the exact same 2 companies..hmmmm)! Scheduling is a nightmare- they don't answer their phones or return calls, so you are left to do everything via email (which is fine- I actually prefer). They sent me 3 different appointments and couldn't fulfill them (you read that right, THEY sent ME appointments and then couldn't fulfill). Then, when they finally come out to the house, they tell my husband that for the 2 person, 2 hour cleaning (regularly $149, got a Groupon for $79), they would get 2 bathrooms, the kitchen, plus 1 maybe 2 rooms done. They "got" the bathrooms and the kitchen done. My kitchen is TINY and was pretty much cleaned before they showed up. So, really it just needed floors and counters/appliances wiped down. My master bath is pretty big, but (again) was semi-straightened before they arrived. They really just needed to clean the tub & toilet, wipe off the counters, clean the mirrors, and floors. It has carpet (not by my choice- I hate it), and they didn't even vacuum it! And the water/toilet-closet didn't get swept or mopped. The other bathroom MAY have taken a little more time, as it's the teenage-girls bathroom... I'm sure there was extra elbow grease needed in floor corners and such. The 2 bathrooms + the kitchen should NOT have taken 2 hours. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: email@example.com... I'll share anything you want to know.
Trusting Combat VeteranHaving a house fire is a stressful, life-changing event but equally stressful was the contractors we chose to repair our home. Even though my insurance suggested otherwise, I chose this group because the salesman told me the owners were all ex-military. The company had no online review and we were overwhelmed, so we felt rushed to make a decision. the salesman left, we had one contractor that translated the instructions in Spanish to his subcontractors. He rarely followed up behind the workers, which resulted in a multitude of mistakes, delays, redos and complaints. After eight months of disappointing results and delays, we took over the 59 items from the repair list including all floors, Driveway, garage floor, bricks and back porch. Afterward, they refused to give us our portion of the insurance money for the work we paid for out of our pocket. It is over a year from the start of the estimated 6-month repair and we still have unresolved issues with this company. We had to hire 2 different inspectors to make sure the house was safe and they had pages of repairs that had to be redone. Most of our complaints were resolved eventually with countless hours, emails, complaints and finally the help of the insurance company. My wife and I were blessed to have flexible work and the ability to monitor their work and understand the mountain of complicated paperwork. I would hate for this company to take advantage of anyone else after having such a stressful event occur, so feel free to contact us for further details. If you decide to go with this company or you are in the middle of repairs, here are a few things to look for.* Have someone onsite to watch work being done. Watch for large gaps in the roofing and for proper framing before it is covered.* Watch for gaping hole on exterior* Take pictures of every plug, lighting and demand a similar quality. They make money if they downgrade the hardware, plugs, hinges, light fixtures, doors etc.*Research every 'work line item' if necessary and demand that bad subcontractor be removed.*Don’t forget to ask your insurance company's claim adjuster for help and update them for the slightest delay. * Have an independent inspector come in at 50% and 100% completion. * Do your accounting- several mistakes were made in their favor, so beware!
When setting up the appointment Rick went over all cost up front and any additional cost if I wanted additional services. When I got the quote I was happy with the cost. Scheduling was worked around my time and not theirs. My tiles never looked so clean.
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:
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
