Carpet Cleaners Near Me: How Do I Find the Best?

Your carpet is arguably the hardest-working part of your home. Every day, your floors are subject to hair, germs, odours and a build-up of dirt, dust and various debris.

When you want a complete refresh or removal of a stubborn stain, hiring a professional carpet cleaner is a hassle-free way to get the best results.

In this post, we’ll outline how you can separate the wheat from the chaff to find the best carpet cleaners near you.

1. Experience

How long have they been in business? If a cleaner has just set themselves up or been in business for less than a year, you might want to keep searching. Professional carpet cleaning is a specialist area that requires fully trained and experienced people. Otherwise, you could end up paying for a less-than-perfect job or a damaged carpet due to inexperienced cleaners.

2. Good reviews

What are customers saying? When you find a suitable cleaner, don’t hire them without finding out what their work is like. Research them online and read reviews from previous happy (or unhappy) customers. Although word-of-mouth recommendations aren’t as common as they used to be, ask around. A family member or friend could know just the right person for your job. Not to mention giving you the opportunity to inspect their work before you decide.

3. Costs

Typically, you are likely to pay between £25-£120 per hour or upwards of £150 a day day for carpet cleaning services. Don’t just choose the cheapest price – here are some factors to bear in mind:

Where you live

The average carpet cleaner in Southeast England will charge 15%-25% more than in other areas. Be aware of and do your research depending on your region. If you aren’t sure if you’re getting a good rate, shop around and get some quotes to confirm the average price in your area.

Number of rooms

It’s pretty common for professional carpet cleaners to quote depending on the number of rooms that you want cleaning. It will also frequently work out cheaper for multiple carpets to be cleaned on the same visit, instead of paying for two cleaning appointments.

Stubborn stains

Certain substances can be much harder to remove than others, such as red wine, grease or paint. If you have a difficult stain, professional cleaners will carry out ‘spot cleaning.’ This can bring the overall price up, so make sure that you tell your chosen cleaning company so it can be included in your original quote.

Type of carpet

A good cleaning company will use appropriate solutions for different types of carpet and hard flooring. You will be charged for the type of solution that will work best for your carpet. So, if you have a stained synthetic carpet, cleaning will naturally cost less than if you need special treatment for a 100% wool carpet.

4. NCCA membership

When you need a carpet cleaner near you for your home, you can’t go wrong with a member from the National Carpet Cleaners Association (NCCA). You’ll not only get a knowledgeable and experienced professional but one working to a Code of Practice to ensure the highest standards.

So, there’s no need to Google ‘carpet cleaners near me.’ Simply put your postcode into NCCA’s online directory and get instant access to local carpet cleaning experts in your area. Any questions? Simply call us on 01562 547754.
