There are nearly 32,000 carpet cleaning companies across the US. Don’t rush to hire the first commercial carpet cleaning company you come across, though. Instead, use these tips to vet your options.

Otherwise, you could end up hiring a company that takes shortcuts. They might do more harm than good to your commercial carpets. If they impact the appearance of your commercial building, it could hurt your company’s reputation.

Instead, keep these seven factors in mind when reviewing your options. With these tips, you can find the best carpet cleaning company around.

Start your search using these simple tips today!

1. Look for an Established Business

First, head online and search for “commercial carpet cleaning company near me.” Then, make a list of options to research further.  It helps to find a company that’s long-established itself in the industry. An established business won’t disappear overnight. You’ll have peace of mind knowing they have years of experience, too.

Teams learn from hands-on experience. It’s likely the company has learned a lot in that time, too. By now, they’ve probably developed an efficient process for helping their clients. A new business, however, might still need to get its footing. They might encounter kinks in their operations, too.

You don’t want them using you as a guinea pig. Instead, choose an experienced, established team. A company that has lasted in the industry for a few years has likely outlasted competition in the area, too. Chances are, they’ve earned the respect of their clients. 

Take the time to research the team as well. What training do they complete before cleaning office carpets for their clients? Does the company vet their employees before hiring them, too? Learning more about the company’s history and staff can give you peace of mind before you invite them to work on your property.

2. Look for Certifications

If you want to find the best commercial carpet cleaning company around, make sure they’re certified. For example, you might want to find a company that employs teams with a Carpet Cleaning Technician certification. Their employees can earn this certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration.

Technicians with this certification have completed additional training for carpet cleaning and restoration. These teams will likely offer top-rated services you can depend on.

Other certifications might include:

  • Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician
  • Rug Cleaning Technician
  • Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician
  • Water Damage Restoration Technician

Choosing a team with certified technicians can give you peace of mind. They’ll have the know-how and training necessary to work on your property. These technicians likely won’t make costly mistakes when working on your carpets.

Make sure their technicians remain up-to-date with their training, too. Otherwise, they could end up using outdated techniques or solutions. 

3. Check Their Paperwork

Before hiring a commercial carpet cleaning company, check their paperwork. Look for a company that’s licensed and insured. The company should have a license from the state. Ask for proof that their license is up-to-date before you hire them. You can check your local government website to make sure their licensure is relevant.  Look for a company that has liability and worker’s compensation insurance, too.

If an accident occurs while they’re working on your property, you don’t want the company to hold you liable. For example, you shouldn’t have to pay for an injured employee’s medical bills. You shouldn’t have to cover any damages the company causes on your property, either.

Finding a licensed, insured company can give you peace of mind. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay for these unnecessary expenses out of pocket.

4. Consider Their Products and Tools

Ask each commercial carpet cleaning team on your list about the tools they use. After all, you don’t want someone who uses harsh, cheap chemicals on your carpets. Instead, make sure you understand the carpet cleaning equipment they’ll use before they get started.

Make sure the solutions won’t leave any detergent residue or stains on your carpets. Otherwise, the residue could attract dirt to the carpet. Over 43 million tons of dust fall over the US every year.

That’s 2,000 dust mites in one ounce of carpet dust! Ask if they use chemical-free technology to clear the dust from your carpets. Does the company offer steam cleaning services? Ask them how long it will take before the carpets are dry. Take the time to learn more about the company’s process before they start cleaning office carpets on your property.

5. Ask for References and Reviews

You can learn more about each company on your list by asking for references and reviews. Speak with at least three of the company’s recent clients. Then, ask about the client’s experience working with that company.

Would the client hire that company again? Why or why not? Ask the client if the team was on time, professional, and efficient, too. Learning more from someone who was once in your shoes can help you make a more informed decision.

6. Consider the Price

Ask at least three local companies on your list for a quote. Gathering multiple quotes can help you determine the local average. Don’t rush to choose the cheapest option, though. Instead, make sure you understand what’s included in the quote. Make sure the company offers the services you need, though.

7. Review the Contract

Request a copy of each company’s contract. Review the contract in detail before signing on the dotted line. If you have any questions, ask before you sign. If you agree on anything over the phone, make sure it’s in writing. Having a written agreement will help you handle any disputes that occur.

Ask the company if they offer a guarantee, too. What if you’re not satisfied with their services? The company should return to fix the problem. Otherwise, consider taking your business elsewhere.

I heard about them from a friend who does daycare and decided to give them a try (i have used other in the past, usually disappointing-zerorez was sadly the worst)... I asked for the same technician she used (Jacob) just to be on the safe side, but was assured all their technicians are great ;).... these guys were kind, professional, fast and my carpets look BEAUTUFUL! After a huge Easter party, we had silly putty, baby food pouch splatter, throw up etc, i mean my carpet was rough! So got i called the next day lol! They were able to come out when i needed and really did a fabulous job! Thankyou sooo much!!! Supernice that they cared they did their job they didn't add any extra fees, not for anybof those spots, nothing! Way to run a good business!:)read more

I was amazed at the... results! You could see it with one stroke! Matt and Kaleb came out to clean my sectional that was SO dirty from my husband and toddler! They did an excellent job and it looks brand new! I wish I would have taken a before picture to show how amazing they did! While they were there, I asked them about an area rug I had. They were very knowledgeable about it and had no problem adding a cleaning service for it last minute! I couldn’t believe the difference it made! They also showed me how to upkeep my sectional and rug in between cleans and what to do if something spills on them! Added bonus: NO CHEMICALS! Never have to worry about kid or pet safety 😍 we also had them do a tack room at our ranch! I will forever be a TruRinse customer! The pictures speak for themselves! Thanks Matt and Kaleb!read more

This is the second time... we’ve hired this company and they’ve gone above and beyond both times. We had Andrew clean our carpets today and he was so positive, professional, attentive, and generous. The carpets look amazing. He was able to get crushed slime out of our master bedroom carpet and toddler urine out of my daughter’s bedroom. 😂 You would never know how much my kids abuse these carpets based on these “after” pictures. Thank you, Andrew and the TruRinse team who set up the appointment and communicated so clearly. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know and will be reaching out in the future for another cleaning! Also, I REALLY appreciate the very clean, fragrance free, natural salt product you use! It cleans so well without any of the junk!!! 👏👏👏read more

Today I had Maxx and... Jed, and they did a fantastic job!!! Made sure to pretreat the numerous pet issues in the carpets and suggested to protect it afterward after removing stains and odors so easier to clean the next time which I thought was the GREATEST IDEA EVER!!! Carpet all looks brand-new and smells DELICIOUS!!! TruRins is the ONLY carpet cleaning I ever hire, and one other note is I had them clean my tile in my bathroom and the grout came out bright white like it had just been installed. So, HIGHLY recommend them and have been using them for at least 10 years now.read more
