I’ve been cleaning carpet and furniture for over 18 Years. I own a very expensive Truck mounted Carpet Cleaning Van.
I get so upset when I see these new so called green carpet cleaning companies, driving around in a miniature want to be Carpet cleaning company. Seriously how do you compare a truck mount Equipment like my Butler system to these fly by night companies. Dry Cleaning, Green Cleaning, on and on. Compare Truck mounted equipment worth over $70,000 to a $500 – $5000 machines these companies carry on there vehicles. People are concerned about carpet being wet. People have to understand that the only way to clean a carpet is with hot water, not dry chemicals. Would anyone out there do laundry with just chemicals? Dry carpet cleaning industry has been scaring consumers about having there carpet being wet. Beware you will get mold etc. When I steam clean a customers carpet it dries usually within 6 hours with proper ventilation. Consumers have to stop believing everything on the internet or the fancy commercials, do your own research. The best source of information is your friends and neighbors, ask them who they use. I recommend hiring companies that use Truck mounted Hot water Extraction systems ( steam cleaning), not because I use this in my business but because the carpet Manufactures recommend Hot water extraction to maintain your carpeting at home or business. Don’t get sucked into wasting money with Chem Dry who use chemicals and Soda water. I always get calls from customers who used Chem Dry, and ask for me to clean up their mess.
