Your Carpet is Like a Big Air Filter

This means the air you are breathing is contaminated with germs and allergens and that can effect respiratory problems like Asthma

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Various airborne particles may trigger allergies for sensitive children and adults. Carpet fibers hold dust, allergens and other particles down in the carpet and out of the air, even with the activity of children. The particles trapped in the carpet then can be easily removed by adhering to a regular carpet cleaning and maintenance schedule that includes vacuuming and periodic extraction carpet cleaning using truck mount carpet cleaners so the germs and alergens are exsuasted outside.

How to Choose a Good Carpet Cleaner

Learn 6 Costly Misconceptions About Carpet Cleaning 4 Recommendations & 7 Questions To Ask a Carpet Cleaner Before You Invite Them Into You Premises.

You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet
The only reason to clean your carpet is to get out the dirt
One method of cleaning is as good as another
Having the right equipment is all a company needs to clean your carpets properly
The company that offers the lowest price is the company I should hire
An honest carpet cleaning company can give an exact price over the phone

You should wait as long as possible before carpet cleaning.
No. dirt is an abrasive - like sandpaper. Every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into you carpet fibres. A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps - by itself is simply not enough, you need carpet cleaning,

The only reason to clean your carpet is to get out the dirt.
No. Indoor Air quality experts say, "once a carpet looks dirty, it's really filthy, and filthy carpet can be a serious health risk, especially since New Zealanders spend 90% of their time indoors". If you have allergies, asthma or any other breathing problems one major source of your problem could be the pollens, and Dust Mites in your carpet. By carpet cleaning your carpets you also eliminate bacteria, chemicals and tobacco tar residue.

One method of carpet cleaning is as good as another.
No. You can choose from 2 primary methods of carpet cleaning machines: Dry chem cleaning or hot water extraction. First, I'll explain dry chem carpet cleaning. many people believe that dry cleaning carpet is like dry cleaning your clothing. This is not true. All carpet cleaners use water in one way or another.

Here is the main method of dry chem carpet cleaning. When the dry chem method is used, the carpet cleaner uses a machine similar to a floor polisher spinning a large cotton bonnet from side to side, absorbing dirt that's in the carpet, it's like trying to rub the dirt out of carpet with a large towel. Can you imagine doing this to your hair. Whilst this method can be useful as an interium carpet cleaning, it can leave a chemical residue in your carpet, which is the main reason dry chem carpet cleaning is not very effective.

The second carpet cleaning method is called hot water extraction This is a fancy way of saying that a hot water carpet cleaning solution is sprayed into the carpet and then sucked out of the carpet. This method is also referred to as โ€œsteam cleaning.

Shaw Industries, the world largest carpet manufacturer, recommend hot water extraction truck mount carpet cleaning, in fact it's part of their carpet extended warranty plan. Dupont 3m international and the New Zealand wool board also recommend this method of carpet cleaning. You can choose from 2 different types of hot water extraction carpet cleaning: Portable extraction, which is a smaller carpet cleaning machine for the home carpet steam cleaner novelist.

Or truck-mounted extraction which the larger carpet cleaning machine is mounted in a van or truck, and often runs off the vans motor without using your electricity or hot water. these types of carpet cleaning machines cost a lot more, which may be why they are still fairly new to New Zealand.

Not surprisingly, the truck mount extraction gives a much more superior carpet clean because it heats the water up to a higher temperature - and shoots less carpet cleaning solution into the carpet at a higher pressure - which breaks up the dirt and bacteria. Then the machine uses higher suction to draw the dirt out of the carpet, leaving a drier finish. This is the method Graeme's Auckland Carpet Steam n Dry uses, and is by far the most superior carpet cleaning method in the world today. It's like when you have a shower you rinse off the dirt and soap - for a cleaner carpet.

Having the right equipment is all a carpet cleaner needs to clean your carpets properly.
Some carpet cleaning companies may own good equipment, but the employees may not know how to use it correctly. This is why it is important to choose your carpet cleaner carefully. The best carpet cleaning companies are those whom are certified by the International Institute of Carpet Restoration and Cleaning Certification, known as the I.I.C.R.C. A carpet cleaning company cannot buy this certification. The carpet cleaner must earn the certification through study, experience and a successful completion of formal written examinations. Carpet Cleaners whom are certified by the I.I.C.R.C have, in effect, earned a degree in carpet cleaning.

Carpet cleaners that offers the lowest price is the company I should hire.
Maybe but not always. Here are 2 important points to consider.

POINT #1: The carpet cleaning price you see advertised may not be for the service you want performed. If you want the carpet cleaner to remove only some of the dirt you can choose from hundreds of carpet cleaners that use small shampoo machines or other carpet cleaning methods. Or you can even hire a carpet cleaning machine from the grocery store and do the job yourself. Cheap carpet steam cleaners just dont give carpet magic results

POINT #2: The carpet cleaning price you see advertised may not be the price you pay. Many home owners in Auckland have learnt the low price carpet clean they saw advertised was not the price they where charged using an illegal bait and switch tactics. By their misleading advertising they cast a shadow on our entire carpet cleaning industry. Then you'll find professionals like myself whom work extra hard to earn your trust and respect

Any honest carpet cleaning company can give an exact price over the phone
Normally yes, but not always. Set in stains like dye, pH burns, cordial, and pet urine may not come out completely with any carpet cleaning process. In this case the stain can usually be removed with a chemical removal treatment, this is often a seperate process than the carpet cleaning, so it may cost extra
Second, the amount of soiling. Carpet that hasn't been cleaned for ten years may need a solvent boost and will take longer to steam clean than carpet that was cleaned 6 months ago.

Minor conditions can be handled with a combination of germicidal and enzyme surface treatments, and enzyme injections into the underlay padding. Major conditions usually require underlay pad replacement and floor treatment in addition to pre-treating and steam cleaning carpets.
