When we first moved into our home, the house had been abandoned for a couple of years. Both floors were covered with rugs, and the wildlife had taken up residence in the house. They also smelled.
First thing, before we even moved in, I wanted the rugs cleaned. I called several rug services but went with Stanley Steemer for a couple of reasons.
First was the discussion I had with the technician. We discussed the condition of the house, and he suggested that they might use a cleaner product that would deep clean the rugs, removing much of the contaminates I suspected the rug might have, and also give the house a fresh, clean smell.
Second was that the technician said it would take a couple of days for the rugs to completely dry out. This suggested to me that deep cleaning would actually make the carpets wet with solution, right down to the padding. These rugs needed a cleaning that good.
Third was price. The pricing, while a little higher than a couple of other quotes, was still within the range that I had in mind, and was just right for the amount of work this project would take.
They did spend the entire day on this house. They went over the carpets several times. The rugs were indeed wet to the touch. This was not a problem, as we had not moved anything in by that time, and it was several days before the trucks would be there with our furniture.
I am also pleased with the results. The carpets no longer smelled, and when I vacuumed the first time, there were no little foreign particles in the carpet that would have made me cringe.
Great service, knowledgeable, and good pricing. Check out Stanley Steemer for your carpet cleaning needs.
