So it can be really confusing when looking for carpet cleaning services. The reason for this is carpet cleaning can be done in many different ways (methods). Plus, the big differences of prices carpet cleaners charge makes it near impossible to choose a carpet cleaner. So I am here to help you along that road. From my experience Price And dry times are the most common questions asked.


How Long Will It Take For My Carpet To Dry?

How Long Will It Take For My Carpet To Dry

How Long Will It Take For My Carpet To Dry


This question is normally asked by people that have had their carpet cleaned by a professional or cleaned their own carpets. They know it can take hours from experience and that it causes inconvenience in the home.
Lets talk about the situation where someone has used a carpet cleaner and the carpet took hours to dry. This normally happens when the carpet cleaner is not very experienced and really does not know what they are doing. Basically, dirt bonds to the carpet, that’s why you can’t vac it out. Breaking this bond is called emulsification. The water is just used to flush out the emulsified dirt. 

So when cleaning a carpet, keep going over and over will not remove the dirt if that bond is not broken. Now for the science part. Detergents come in different kinds and matching them to the type of dirt is key in breaking the bond. This explanation also goes for the people that have tried to clean their own carpets.


So how can you tell the good from the bad carpet cleaners? Read our carpet cleaning guide Here.


Which Carpet Cleaning Method Is Best.

Talk to any carpet cleaner and they will tell you that the method or machine they use is best. Bottom line here is that all carpet cleaning methods clean carpets. And as a customer you are buying a clean carpet and you should not worry about how you get to that place.


What you need to look out for is in the “service” you are buying. Look out for a hygienic clean in other words does the clean also kill all the germs? Its unrealistic to expect your carpet to be germ free all the time but maintaining the levels keeps you family healthier.


How Much Does Carpet Cleaning Cost?

That really depends on how well the person or company runs their business. At the top end of the food chain you have franchises that have lots of overheads and the mother company to pay. And at the bottom you have a part time person that is just cleaning carpets for some extra money. (nothing wrong with that)


So What Are You Really Buying? As I said above you are buying a clean carpet. So when looking at cost and price its like comparing apple with apples, they all look the same, right? This is when its hard to choose. I can only tell you how we have approached this. We offer to our customer a carpet cleaning after care package here. This adds real value to what our customers are buying compared to other carpet cleaners.


Well I hope this helps? Good luck. I could dive deep with carpet cleaning but thought that would not be a great idea? Anyway, if you need a professional carpet cleaner here is our carpet cleaning page and contact us here.

Everything You Need To Know About Carpet Shampooers

Hi welcome to my website. My name is Ian Harper and I am a local carpet cleaner in Southend On Sea And Leigh On Sea. So you are here because you want to buy or find out more about “carpet shampooers”? Well I would like to help you make the right choice. I will try to be unbiased as possible, lets get started and find you the best carpet shampooer.


Carpet Shampooer Reviews


This is now harder than you would think. With so much choice for carpet shampooers and so many places to buy a carpet shampooer you cant see the wood for the trees. Most of these websites that review carpet shampooers are what is called “Affiliate Marketing Sites” what this means is that they are shops. The problem here is articles like “The 10 Best Carpet Shampooers 2018” are just a selection that they want to sell you.


In the UK we are lucky to have https://www.which.co.uk/ they do what you would expect from a review website. Problem here is that to get at the reviews for carpet shampooers you need to subscribe. They have a introductory offer for just a pound but then automatically goes up to £10 a month. What we did when we were look for a washing machine was sign up then cancel after we had the report this is harder than it sounds but can be done. They make you jump though some hoops and don’t make it easy. This is your best place to find out the best carpet shampooer.


Amazon Reviews For Carpet Shampooers


AS you will know these types of reviews are written by people that buy carpet shampooers. Big problem here is that most people are only motivated to write when something goes wrong and not in the vast amount of cases when it all works out fine. This group of reviews for carpet shampooers don’t see that they might be at fault. One of the biggest complaints is that the carpet shampooer did not perform well. That’s because the carpet was heavy soiled and should have been professionally cleaned.


Plus it never looks good when you have lots of negative carpet shampooers together but if you put this into context with all the happy people that had positive experiences with their new carpet shampooers you then see the true picture.


Where To Buy A Carpet Shampooer

When buying a carpet shampooer, you properly will not think about servicing. Carpet shampooers are not just wet versions of you vacuum. You are dealing with water and electricity and safety is very important. So if you can buy locally from one of these little shops that service carpet shampooers then you will not only be doing yourself a favour in knowing where to take the carpet shampooer when its needs a service but supporting your local community.


My advice on how to keep your carpet shampooer working for long period between services is always run clean fresh water thought it after you have used it to clean your carpet. Why? Well the detergent that they sell for these machines are not the best quality and can clog up the jets when the carpet shampooer is not used often. Don’t worry about this is just one of those things that if you know about you can prevent.


Cleaning With Your Carpet Shampooer.


Being a professional carpet cleaner, I will try and boil it down to the real basics. These machines are designed for light soil. Sure you can watch video’s on YouTube that show them dealing with heavy soil. What they don’t tell you how wet the carpet was after and how long it took to dry out and how it smelt while drying.


If you have a heavy soil carpet then first get them professionally cleaned or hire a rug doctor then start using your own carpet shampooer on a regular basis.


What Is The Difference Between A Carpet Shampooer And Professional Machines?

Cleaning a carpet is about breaking the soil bond between the carpet and soil and then flushing that soil away. When you have lots of soil you need more water and in turn more vacuum power to recover that dirt. So the big difference between your carpet shampooer is the amount of water it can deliver and recover. Without leaving the carpet soaking wet and, in some cases, damaging it.


Now you know how to buy and use a carpet shampooer. Hope this has been fair and unbiased I wish you well with you carpet cleaning with your new carpet shampooer

Professional Carpet Cleaning Prices

Answer: When you ask about the cost of carpet cleaning and you use the word “professional” it really depend how you view that with regards a trade that does not have any barriers to setting up and practising. In the UK we have The British Institute Of Cleaning Science, who goal is to both to educate cleaners and the public on the profession of cleaning. I did my City & Guilds In Cleaning Science thought them. So I have a view that not many share that this my starting point.

Carpet Cleaning Prices

Next you have trade associations the main cleaning one I have already quoted. In carpet cleaning we have a few some better than others. The National Carpet Cleaners Association Is the best of them.

Lastly we have carpet cleaning franchises. This is where you will be safe if your looking for a professional carpet cleaner, and is my recommendation.

Carpet Cleaning Cost

So “how much professional carpet cleaning cost” you will find a wide price range. franchisees being at the top end. why such a wide range? because you have part time carpet cleaners competing alongside franchises. If your looking for a cheap carpet clean then ask around friends and family you might find someone that use a part time carpet cleaner and been very happy with the experience.

Carpet Cleaning Price

I hope that explains costs of carpet cleaning. My goal here is to explain why such a big gap in cost. Not to say one end of that cost range is in any way worse that the top end or any less professional. just people tend to judge quality by price. which was true years ago (why we have brands, which is why I recommend franchises for you) but not so much these days.

Carpet Cleaning Prices Per Room

This is how we price by the room. and we have a great twist on this way of pricing carpet cleaning. “The More Carpets You Have Cleaned The Cheaper Each Carpet Become”

Its volume discounting for carpet cleaning. our customers really like this way of paying for carpet cleaning.
