Professional Carpet Cleaning – Is It Worth The Money?
Calgary Carpet CleaningCarpet Cleaning has historically been viewed as a commodity – a menial task that anyone can do. Long before sophisticated textiles and complex built indoor environments were created, cleaning may have been a simple, easy task, but that is no longer the case.
Complex flooring systems, sensitive fabrics, and new age soiling conditions have created a need for advanced education in the carpet cleaning industry. Unfortunately, many cleaners (and consumers) have not understood this concept. We still see the ads for $6.95 per room for carpet cleaning and sofa cleaning for $45.00. The cleaner puts the ads out, never intending on cleaning for those prices, and the consuming public gets the idea that cleaning should be cheap.
These so called “carpet cleaning” companies also happen to be the ones that don’t educate themselves or their employees. The result is that carpets and fabrics are being ruined every day by uneducated, uninformed, and sometimes downright unscrupulous carpet cleaners.
They are facing soiling conditions that they have never seen or heard of due to a lack of education. Or worse, they create a situation on a carpet or fabric that they have no idea how to fix. Some examples would be that they leave sticky residues in the carpet that causes the carpet or fabric to re-soil rapidly or discolor.
Top-notch education is readily available in our industry. There is no excuse for cleaners not to educate themselves (and provide useful education to their clients). Part of the problem is since they have fallen into the trap of viewing cleaning as a commodity themselves, they can’t afford to educate themselves. Education is expensive, but the result of not getting the knowledge necessary is much more costly.
Expert Cleaning Services invests a great deal in education. Not only do we spend thousands of dollars per year on education, we are heavily involved in our industry making us well connected with our industry leaders.
This way, if a unique situation arises in the field, we have experts that we can call on, therefore bringing the cutting edge of cleaning technology to you.
Our industry provides courses in carpet cleaning, repair, fabric cleaning, marble and tile cleaning, area rug cleaning, customer service, marketing, management, and other related courses.
Many of the organizations offer certification programs that involve testing and ethics requirements. There are trade publications, web-sites, bulletin boards and a variety of opportunities to stay plugged in.
We attend every course we can in order to bring you the very best. Many of these courses require travel across the U.S. and can therefore be quite costly. We believe however, as fiber technology changes and as floor coverings become more complex, proper education is becoming even more important.
The bottom line is that you have a tremendous investment in your textiles and flooring systems and it is our duty to know how to best care for them. Understanding cleaning technology at the highest level helps to reduce cleaning residues and creates a healthier indoor environment by eliminating invisible germs and bacteria. It also empowers the cleaner to remove more soil, therefore creating a longer lasting fabric or floor.
