Before you hire us for carpet cleaning Elgin, you should know a few things about the process. Here are a few considerations:
Pre-vacuuming is an important step of carpet cleaning as it removes any visible pollen, pet hair, dirt, and other contaminant particles.
At Elgins Carpet Cleaners, we specifically vacuum the carpets and area rugs to ensure no large particles come in the way of chemical or steam extraction cleaning.
Another thing to know about professional carpet cleaning services is that not all of them are equal. While steam extraction cleaning is the most common type of method, it’s not the only method used for carpet cleaning.
The method we choose depends on your carpet’s fabric and sensitivity to chemicals. For some fabrics, steam cleaning is the right choice, while for others, you can safely use chemicals and shampoo cleaning.
After cleaning, we apply a stain protector to your carpets and upholstery so that they don’t retain dirt and dust in the future. Most homeowners think that cleaning their carpets will wear off this protector layer.
However, that’s not true. Your foot traffic and furniture placement will do more harm to the carpet than the steam cleaning process, shampoos, or enzymes.
