Having your carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaned when you live on the Sunshine Coast is very beneficial because of the salt in the air being so close to the water. Regular cleaning will help to reduce the wear on fabrics.
Finding a good reliable carpet cleaning company is important for a deep down steam clean, if a steam or dry clean is done correctly it will remove the deep down dirt and dust from within the carpet fibres, by using a professional company you are guaranteed of a quality job.
Jason Neale of Best 1 Cleaning
It’s sometimes hard to find a good carpet cleaner that will do the job correctly.
My name is Jason, the owner of Best 1 Cleaning and Pest Control. We have worked hard to ensure our cleaners work to the highest standards and have also invested in the latest carpet cleaning machines to ensure the best job possible for our customers.
Before attempting to clean carpets, whether it be a steam clean or a dry clean, they should firstly be thoroughly pre vacuumed. Doing a vacuum of the carpets first will remove any loose dirt and grit that has worked its way down to the base of the carpet. This also goes for the cleaning of rugs and upholstery. The better a vacuum before the cleaning process the better the final job will be.
Doing a test piece first on the carpet will identify the type of carpet being cleaned and allow the cleaner to pick the correct cleaning solution or shampoo to use for the best possible results. A test piece is also very important to do before attempting to steam or dry clean upholstery. A small test should be done on an inconspicuous part of the seats to ensure no damage can be caused by the cleaning process.
Carpet Cleaning for High-Rise Apartments
With the many units found on the Sunshine Coast these days, it’s important the company you use can also use a portable carpet cleaning machine. This will mean that you can have your carpets cleaned even if you live on the top floor of an apartment block.
To steam or dry clean carpets effectively, the company doing the clean needs to allow adequate time to complete the job. It’s no good doing the job in a rush. It will just result in marks and stains remaining in the carpet and can also lead to over wetting. If carpets are left to wet after a clean, mould can start to form over the surface of the carpet and also deep down within the base.
End of Lease Carpet Cleaning
If you are vacating a rental property, it’s always best to use a company with a good solid reputation and one that offers a full hundred percent guarantee on all work, including the pest control. This is very important in having your bond released by the letting agent. If the property manager is not 100 percent happy with the carpet cleaning, they will not return your bond. So using a professional company is crucial.
Most people leave getting their carpets and upholstery cleaning done until the last minute. So where possible it’s best to try and book a company in advanced to ensure you get a good time and allow the company sufficient time to complete the job properly.
Things to Ask Your Carpet Cleaner
The main things to remember to ask your carpet cleaner before you book are: (1) do you pre vacuum the carpets? (2) what sort of a clean are you’re going to do, will it be a steam clean or a dry clean? (3) are you fully insured in case anything goes wrong? and (4) how much experience do you have in the carpet cleaning and pest control industry? Use the company if you are satisfied that they have answered all of your questions.
There are different types of carpets and upholstery on the market today. Some types will need specialist cleaning only, or permanent damage can happen. This is where using a quality professional carpet cleaning company will pay in the long run. Choosing a company because they are cheap is always tempting, but this can also lead to headaches. So if something seems too good to be true then it usually is. Remember to ask the company you have hired to explain what you are going to get for your money.
