Vacuum Before Cleaning
Dry soil removal is the most important, yet often skipped step in the cleaning process. The overall outcome and appearance of the job can lead back to this one factor. Too many cleaning companies are focused on how fast they can get in and out of place and on to the next job. Lets face it, vacuuming consumes too much of that time.
The Cleaning Pie
These are the four principal steps that should be used in a quality carpet cleaning job. With any step left off then the other steps have to be increased to make up for the loss of the pie. Let's say agitation is skipped, well more than likely it is compensated by using more chemical ( usually a very high ph ) which can be hard to rinse from the fiber and can lead to rapid resoiling.
If you are paying for a quality carpet cleaning job or expecting one, be sure that all of the above steps are used in the cleaning process. Don't fall prey to the wet and jet standard that so many companies practice now. What is wet and jet? That's where the agitation and time are left out of the cleaning pie. To compensate a high ph chemical is applied (sometimes this is skipped or you are charged extra for it) immediately followed by hot water extraction. If this is all that you require, that's fine. I'll even offer you this service if it's what you want, but it's not really cleaning, just the appearance of it for a short time. Read the fine print in ads, ask questions and don't be duped by these practices that plague our industry. Understand what you paying for. Some ads may state that you are responsible for vacuuming, but all of the other steps should be incorporated into the cleaning process for a thorough and quality cleaning job.
