How to Choose a Carpet, Upholstery or Area Rug Cleaner
Searching for a carpet cleaner online can be like trying to select new toothpaste – with so many options from which to choose, it can be a bit overwhelming!
It’s intimidating to let a complete stranger into your home. When calling a random carpet cleaning company you find on-line, they can sound great over the phone, but it can be a rude awakening when they show up at your door in an unmarked vehicle and the cleaning technician is the same guy who delivered your pizza last week. What level of skill, expertise and trustworthiness does that inspire? Not much!
So rather than blindly selecting a carpet cleaner you find on-line, here is one simple tip that will help narrow your search when it comes to hiring a carpet, upholstery or area rug cleaning company.
When Certifiable is a Good Thing
Cleaning of carpet, upholstery and area rugs takes a special level of expertise, education and experience. This isn’t something that a trainee can learn overnight or in a matter of a couple of weeks and then be ready to fly solo while experimenting in your home. This is where IICRC certification is key!
IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is a non-profit organization that sets the standards for the cleaning and restoration industry. It is recognized internationally as being the leading expert in the latest changes and technology in the field.
In order to become IICRC certified, a company must meet the following requirements:
- Must present accurate information to consumers and conduct business with integrity and honesty.
- A technician on jobs must be formally trained and have passed all certification tests
- Continuing education credits must be maintained each year to keep up on the latest industry changes
- Liability insurance must be maintained to protect all parties
- Agree to Better Business Bureau or similar service to resolve disputes and accept recommendations from arbitration.
