As many of you know, I like to clean, and I like to keep a clean house. One of my cleaning schedules is to vacuum regularly and clean my carpet every 8-12 months. But with two adorable girls running around, no matter how hard I try to keep the carpet clean and keep food in the kitchen, it still gets dirty.
EcoCarpet recently contacted me about coming out to clean my carpet. I will admit that I was excited because I had just mentioned to my husband that it was time for me to clean the carpet again.
When EcoCarpet’s cleaning technicians first arrived, they took time to inspect my carpet and had me walk them through the house to show them any spots in the carpet that were a concern to me. While they cleaned the carpet, they wore shoe covers so as not to track in dirt from outside.
What makes EcoCarpet unique is that they use natural cleaning solutions that don’t have the harsh chemicals. So it’s safe to use, including around babies and pets. And the solution doesn’t leave a residue on the carpet like some carpet cleaners, which allows dirt and dust to build up quickly on the carpet. EcoCarpet uses high-quality equipment that thoroughly cleans the carpet deep down and thoroughly rinses it.
EcoCarpet also guarantees their work, and they will come back to touch up areas in the carpet if the homeowner is not completely satisfied. The company, which has been around for more than a decade, is open and informative about their cleaning process, but they don’t push un-needed services or products on the homeowner. All stain removal is included in the price. And in addition to carpet cleaning, EcoCarpet also cleans upholstery and tile.
I thought it might take them hours to clean my carpet (since that’s how long it usually takes me to do it), but they were done in about one hour. After cleaning each room, they used a high-velocity fan to help speed up the drying process. These fans blow air down into the carpet rather than just blowing air across the top of the carpet. And within about six hours, my the carpets were completely dry.
I’ve never had my carpets professionally cleaned. I’ve always cleaned the carpets myself. But I have to say that not only was it nice not to clean the carpet, but my carpet looks fabulous! The technicians removed all of the spots and really cleaned the high-traffic areas that were dirty. You can see from the photo above how much my carpet needed to be cleaned. There is a line on the carpet where the technician cleaned the carpet and where he was about to clean the carpet.
The cleaning technicians were also very personable and took time to answer questions and tell me about their cleaning process. For those of you who are looking to get your carpet cleaned, I highly recommend EcoCarpet! And if you are planning on having your carpet cleaned, I have cards that will get you 10% off all services from EcoCarpet. Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will send you one.
And one of the highlights of the day, besides having my carpet cleaned and looking awesome, is that my two girls had a blast wearing the shoe booties around the house that each person receives after the technicians leave.
