American Carpet Cleaning
I have always cleaned my carpet myself, but finally decided I was going to have it done professionally....not knowing who to get, I started looking on the Internet. I also asked my friends on Facebook if anyone knew of a good carpet cleaning service. One of my friends suggested American Carpet Cleaning....Doug Cox. I ended up having them do it and couldn't be happier...he came to the house to give us an estimate....very polite and friendly. He did the cleaning today and my carpet looks like brand new....and it is probably 20-25 years old. I liked the fact that he was local and has been in business for many years. Also reasonably priced. The carpet was really bad....needing to be cleaned and I am just amazed at what a GREAT job he did!!!

Tips & Advices
Many services offer long-term contracts that include regularly scheduled cleanings. These contracts sometimes, but do not always, result in discounted prices. Most cleaning services offer discounts in exchange for customer referrals.
Homeowners should review their cleaning service's damage/breakage policy. Some businesses compensate for damaged items, while others do not.
Not always. Before hiring a cleaning service, homeowners should confirm the company verifies its employees' identities and performs background checks. Those planning to hire a self-employed cleaner rather than go through a business should inquire about background check options available from their state's attorney general.
  • The annual costs. Weekly services quickly add up, and homeowners may need to pay additional taxes if they choose a self-employed cleaner.
  • Language barriers and miscommunications. Some professional cleaners might speak English as a second language .
  • Background checks and employment verification. Homeowners can be held liable if they employ a person not legally permitted to work in the U.S.
Some services charge more for pets while others do not. Regardless, homeowners should keep in mind that any pet-related cleaning, such as emptying a litter box, adds to the amount of time the service charges for.
