Cheap carpet cleaning will not save you money, it will cost you in the long run if you are forced to prematurely replace worn carpeting. Carpet is very expensive to replace. This is rarely necessary if professional cleaning methods, like those employed by Norms Carpet Cleaning, are used on a regular basis.
Replacing damaged carpeting requires a process of removing all of your furniture from the area being replaced, which can be a real hassle. Shopping for new carpeting and padding can be a hassle as well. Cheap carpet cleaning methods do not remove the deep, ground in dirt and stains that can damage the fibers. Most carpet fibers are made of a synthetic material like Nylon, Polyester or Olefin which are basically clear, plastic tubes. Once the translucent tubes are scratched from sandy soils and dirt they reflect light differently and will appear dirty, even when they are clean of dirt and soils. Imagine the clear, plastic fiber being similar to your sunglasses. When the sunglasses get scratched, you can clean the dirt from the lens, but the glasses are ruined. You can clean the soils from the rugs, but you cannot clean the damage to the fibers. When the light is reflected through the scratched fiber, the rugs will look dingy and will never look their best.
Cheap carpet cleaning companies rarely take the time and effort to thoroughly clean your carpet, tile or area rugs. It is possible to make the carpet look better without providing a deep down cleaning that is necessary to increase the useful lifespan of the rugs. When the carpets look slightly better, you may feel that they have done their job, but the gritty soils will continue to scratch the fibers if not cleaned thoroughly. Many times using cheaper portable machines instead of expensive, powerful truck mounted cleaning machines. Often using cleaning agents that do not do a good job, or using cleaners that are the wrong pH for the specific soils being encountered. Cheap cleaning companies also employ technicians that have not been properly trained and certified, or do not perform proper background and employment checks. This can put your family at belongings at risk. Finally, many of the cheap carpet cleaning companies will NOT end up saving money at all, because their cheap, advertised price is rarely what you end up paying. Once they have their foot in the door, they will turn on their high pressure sales tactics to attempt to get you to pay more for a better quality job. You know, the type of job you should have been searching for all along.
