Questions to ask when looking for a Carpet Cleaning Company

Carpet manufacturers recommend that their carpets are professionally cleaned at least once a year. With this in mind, what should you be looking for in your carpet cleaner to make sure that you get a decent service for your hard-earned cash?


In recent years, carpet cleaning companies have been springing up everywhere- a phenomenon which is inextricably linked to the proliferation of cheap carpet cleaning equipment which is only slightly more efficient than freely available home rental carpet cleaning devices. At Bourne Valley Cleaning Services, we have heavily invested in the most technologically advanced equipment, guaranteeing an extremely thorough clean that you wouldn’t be able to achieve if you did it yourself.

Before the internet age, simply checking how long a company had been in business could give a good indication of the level of quality you would expect to get from a carpet cleaning company.
