When looking for a carpet cleaner in Palos Heights there are varying difference in quality amongst the companies you chooose.

Some of the questions that you might ask that will distinguish whether you are getting quality services fcr your money are the following:

1)  Are the individuals cleaning your carpets trained properly?

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the only certifying body for carpet cleaners.  The individuals cleaning your capeting should have a basic level of knowledge pertaining to the care of your carpeting before even being let in the door of your home.

2)  Does the company cleaning your carpeting use Hot Water Extraction?

Hot water Extration is the only method of carpet cleaning that the two largest carpet mills, Shaw and Mohawk recommend.  Any other method of carpet cleaning will void the 10 year warranties associated with both these manufacdtureres

3)  Does your company us a neutralizing rince?

Carpet Cleaning Solutions are alkaline in nature.  The carpet manufacturers designed the carpeting to have a neutral PH to maintain its soft nature.  If your carpet cleaner usees an acid rince it neutralizes the alkaline cleaning solution leaving your carpet clean and soft.  Not utilizing an acid rince leaves the carpet bristle and stiff in nature and the carpeting is prone to resoiling based on it’s ionic charge associated with the alkaline state.   This sounds complex, but really a neutralizing rinse is a necessity in mainting the life and comfort of your carpeting.
