Cleaning your floor covering is a tedious task. You can spend all day working and still not get the results you want. This is why most people prefer to hire a carpet cleaning company. If you’re planning to hire a service provider, make sure that you find the experts in the industry. Here are a few questions you should ask before hiring a professional:
Can you give me a written estimate?
Most people will get an estimate from the service provider before hiring them. However, most people will fail to get it in writing. Having documentation is important in avoiding additional costs during the job. If you have something in writing, you have a guarantee of how much you’ll spend for their services.
Having written proof of the estimates also gives you an exact idea of services that are included in the costs. This way, you can control which services you want. There’s nothing worse than agreeing to hire a carpet cleaning company at a certain rate, only to find out that you’ll be charged for services you didn’t approve of.
How big is your team?
Another important consideration is manpower. If you have a small space, there’s no point in bringing in a 10-man team. However, 1 person couldn’t possibly complete the job for a high-rise office building. Most businesses are flexible and are able to accommodate different job scales. Others, however, will only accept large-scale jobs.
Do you have any certifications?
Whilst this industry is highly unregulated in the country, the government offers a program for those who want to specialise in the business. It teaches candidates the basics of fibre construction in rugs. It also trains them in the proper methods and techniques to wash and dry rugs. Repair, maintenance and installation is a part of the curriculum as well.
When picking a service provider, it’s better to hire someone with a Certificate III in Carpet Cleaning Services.
