I've had several encounters with Tarzana carpet cleaners regarding the carpets in two of my guest homes. Nothing but good, positive feedback about them. Their customer service is great as there's plenty of helpful people that are willing to lend a hand whenever needed. I hardly ever have trouble booking appointments for both of the homes, and since they're both in two different locations, they always find a way to work something out to knock out both homes in the same day. They have flexible hours of operation and do a good job working around your schedule. Technicians are always professional and arrive promptly on the day of appointments. They do such a great job with the carpets and don't leave until the job is done to my satisfaction. They're the least of my concerns because they are well trained and know exactly what they're doing in any situation given. I'm never thrown any surprises or last minute charges with services. Everything is explained clearly and pretty straightforward when it comes to jobs, their work is very much appreciated.

The technician came in today and simply put he did an excellent job. My couch which is made of leather only looked better when we first got it brand new, this was 7 years ago!!! These guys did that great of a job.When I look for a business, this i exactly the type of quality that I seek--a company who stands by their words and make sure their customers are satisfied with the job done. Unfortunately there are not many businesses which have this type of work ethic nowadays. It's comforting to know that there are still some businesses that strive to earn their money the good old fashioned way. Hard work and fulfilling promises. I will definitely be calling these guys again!
I am the owner of a small, but also popular and busy inn and our guest rooms experience lots of foot traffic. Sometimes our guests often spill wine or coffee and who knows what else on the carpet floors and they also end up tramping in sand from the beach! We had a serious stain awhile back that one of our previous carpet cleaners couldn't remove, even with his professional equipment. We were contemplating getting our carpet, re-carpeted. Well, these guys had came in and assessed the stain and within 30 minutes they were able to remove that ugly thing and now our carpet looks great. Great work!
These fine folks saved my poor mattress! Awesome job! The tech whom had helped me out was nice and he was quick and efficient in his work. I had an unfortunate "accident" happen in my mattress from the craziness of a party from a friend I had let crash over. After doing all the remedies in the book, oxide clean, baking soda I had read about the problems only magnifying. Well guess what, the stain and urine smell is gone and the tech was thorough and quick in his work. Most importantly he took the job very professionally! Will def call back when the couch needs a cleaning, it eventually will.
What an excellent booking. The guys had arrived right on the dot. They had done a walk through of the area which I needed serviced and they had assessed my carpet cleaning situation and gave me a break down. They got on with their work right away. With their work, it was almost as if they had done magic! They had transformed 3 stairways, 2 bedrooms and even the old rug we've had for years; they got that looking is absolute pristine condition too! The technicians I was sent were easy going and extremely helpful' they had even helped out with moving the heavy furniture! Great Job!
You know how everyone has that one company in their phone book that they save for future references. Well, this is the company for me! These guys are do such phenomenal work with their cleaning services. Whenever the tile and the grout of my buildings begin to look grimy; I always give a call to these guys right here! They come on over and get my hotel building tiles looking all shiny and brand new again! Thank you guys for your amazing services! You guys will continue to be my #1 provider for years and years to come. Keep doing a wonderful job!
They have a new TV commercial but no web site in order to assist their prior or prospective customers. Kind of frustrating. It will help the company a lot if they had a web site hosting thier products and pricing, not to mention assisting their customers.These are the modern times, if you are going to pay large amounts of money to Air a TV Commercial, have a web site to equally assist in the advertisment. This would be modern times common sense.Thanks and good luck in assisting your customers and your future prospects.Sincerely,A Consumer

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.
