Carpet Cleaning Adelaide
What can you expect from a carpet cleaning service? Well, this will depend on the company you choose. Cheap carpet cleaning is usually what you get a cheap and fast job. The problem with this sort of service is the carpet doesn’t get a deep clean and this can be a cause for concern, because it means the dirt and bacteria hasn’t been properly removed. In most cases, the money you save by using a cheaper carpet cleaner Adelaide company is only a few dollars. So it’s important to use a prompt and reliable company that gives a high standard of service.
Steam Clean or Dry Clean
When having your carpets steam cleaned or dry cleaned, the technician should firstly do a thorough pre vacuum before starting the cleaning. This is also the same when having rug cleaning and upholstery cleaning done. With a good pre vacuum, all the loose dust and even some stains will be removed. After this an inspection for more permanent marks and stains can done and be treated with a specialised cleaning solution. Then a pre spray would be done over the entire area to be cleaned with a shampoo. This is then left to dwell for a short time. During the dwell time, the cleaning solution has time to break down the remaining dirt from the carpet, rugs or seats. The cleaning process would then start. If carpets are being cleaned, it is important to pay attention to the edges. Along the edges, dust and small bits and pieces can collect and build up within the carpet.
Cleaning Lounge Suites
When cleaning lounge suites, it also important to pay attention to all edges and arm rests. The arms of a lounge suite get very dirty over time and, in most cases, it’s the sweat from our bodies. This is like a grease so a good cleaning agent is needed to break this down. The product most cleaning companies use is called a grease release agent, but this must be extracted properly with a suitable shampoo or it could end up damaging the fabric. This is when a professional cleaner is needed.
Mining Activities Increase the Need for Carpet Cleaning
In south Australia, there is a lot of mining activity at the moment. This means there are a lot of properties in and around Adelaide that need to have the carpets cleaned and also a pest control treatment. Using a professional to do this is very important so that the tenant has their bond returned in full. The sort of thing a property manager is looking for when they do their final inspection is new stains in the carpets. If a tenant has spilled drinks or food in the carpet, it is their responsibility to get them removed. If a property manager or landlord is not happy with the clean and the pest treatment, they will insist it be done again. So it pays to use a company that understands this and take pride in their work.
End of Lease Cleaning
After vacating a rental property at the end of lease, the requirements for pest control is usually to have cockroaches and or fleas done. If there has been a cat or dog on the premises, an internal and external spray for fleas will have to be done. It will have to be done by a licensed pest control company. When the receipt is issued, it should have written on it the carpets that were cleaned and the pest treatment that was done along with the products used. This is now a requirement from the real estate agents before they will have your bond released from the RTA.
Finding a company that can do both services at the same time will save you money as it can all be done by the same technician. This is a great idea for people on a budget. So the things to ask a cleaning company when vacating a property is do you do both carpets and pests and do you issue a receipt; how long have you been in business; and the most important thing to ask is the work fully guaranteed. The guarantee is very important because if the agent rejects the clean for whatever reason, you need to be assured that the company you hired will go back and do it again for free.
