At face value, all carpet cleaners may appear the same; however, an informed review reveals Dave’s Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning provides the best carpet cleaning in Los Angeles. Just as not every carpet or rug is the same, and presents a unique combination of cleaning challenges, different types of carpet cleaners bring different results. Consider the following seven parameters when selecting a carpet cleaning company.

1. Dry or Steam Cleaning

There are two basic types of carpet cleaning available. Dry carpet cleaning uses chemicals with specialized machines that provide a surface clean with no (or minimal) drying time required. For delicate fabric such as silk or wool, or thin carpeting that may be damaged by excessive moisture, dry carpet cleaning is best utilized. Another frequent factor for using the services of a dry carpet cleaner is if drying time were an issue, such as a last-minute cleaning before company arrives, or an accidental stain on the day of a dinner party.

Steam cleaning removes more than 90% of retained debris, including soil, pet dander, bacteria, mold, and allergens. Steam cleaning with a powerful extractor is the only way to deep clean thickly piled carpet. It is also superior to dry cleaning when it comes to stains.

Dave’s Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning can address any cleaning situation. Available equipment ranges from handheld devices for smaller areas to a truck-mounted machine that removes 100 gallons of liquid in less than an hour. Both dry and steam options are available depending on the client’s requirements.

2. Individual Evaluation

A professional and experienced carpet cleaning company needs some basic data points to provide the best cleaning outcome. Pertinent information will include the type of carpet, the age of the carpet, and the type of stain – whether, pet dander, pet hair or pet accidents; red wine spills; and gum, ink or wax to name a few. Before using any cleaning products, the technician should investigate potential allergies and whether children or pets use the rug.

A potential client should view any company cautiously that “jumps in” with the same process for every client.

3. Experience

The longer a company has been in business, the more likely they will be successful and reliable in many different situations. At Dave’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, with over 50 years of experience, we are at the top of our game and our goal is customer satisfaction.

4. Reviews states that readers “should be able to trust that reviews reflect the honest opinions of people who have used a product or service. Dave’s Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning has consistently garnered excellent consumer reviews over the past seven decades.

6. Choice of Cleaning Materials

Many carpet cleaning companies only have the cheapest cleaning solutions to maximize profits. An informed consumer with children, pets or allergies may require or desire “greener” substances. Choosing cleaning substances should be a routine discussion before agreeing to a service contract.

Dave’s Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning uses products that are both pet- and child-safe. Further, if you are allergic to soap, let them know and they can use Green Seal-certified soap-free products that are also odor-free, hypo-allergenic and non-toxic, with no VOCs and no off-gassing. They are also EPA-approved for indoor air quality, asthma and allergy approved, and safer for pets. Plus they safely remove soap residue left by less experienced carpet cleaners. Finally, they are more sustainable for a healthy planet.

Dave’s Rug Cleaners ensure that the customer’s needs are met. The company has always kept up with modern advances while minimizing environmental or personal exposure to dangerous materials.

7. Certifications

Just as you should expect a company vehicle to display the company name and contact number, a reputable carpet cleaner should provide evidence of certification plus insurance, licensing and bonding. Every company contracting with private individuals must be bonded and licensed by the state. In addition, be sure to see proof of insurance, which protects both parties should there be any damage incurred due to the service.
