Thank goodness A Cleaner World got into the carpet cleaning business shortly before we bought our first house. The honest truth is back then I had no idea what to look for in a carpet cleaner. I only really knew two things. First, I knew the type of business A Cleaner World strives to run. Second, Greg (the managing partner for A Cleaner World Carpet Cleaning) had been a dry cleaning manager for years so I knew what a stickler he was for top-notch service and quality.
Our house had hardwoods on the main floor and carpeting on the second floor. The carpeting was in decent shape, but of course I wanted to replace it prior to moving in. My husband convinced me that we should at least have it cleaned first. Cleaning it made all the difference in the world; Greg removed spots that my husband and I didn't think would come out. The carpet looked almost new. In fact, we had the carpet cleaned every year for 5 years, and when we sold the house, that same carpeting was still upstairs.
If you need your carpet cleaned and have no idea how to select a company, here's some information on how to select a reputable company:
The most important thing though is to choose a company that is IICRC certified, like A Cleaner World Carpet Cleaning. IICRC is a non-profit organization that helps people like us ensure we're using qualified and trusted professionals. In order for a business to be IICRC certified, they must adhere to a strict set of guidelines. Now that I no longer have access to A Cleaner World Carpet Cleaning, I'll be using this nifty little tool to help me find a carpet cleaner in Tennessee that's IICRC certified.
