When you’re getting ready to bring your baby home from the hospital, you are most likely a bundle of nerves and anticipation.
You likely have a checklist that you need to run through and are frantically imagining what your baby will be like while doing your best to plan out the life adjustments.
Make sure that cleaning your carpet, tile, and upholstery is high on the priority list, especially if you live in SW Florida.
Before researching the cheapest carpet cleaning company you can find, check out their credentials, certifications, and Better Business Bureau reviews. Every carpet cleaning company has its way of cleaning and as a parent with a new baby, you must choose the company that best reflects your baby’s needs.
To help you choose a carpet, tile, or upholstery cleaning company that’s just right for your family, here are some considerations.
Research the cleaning company before inviting them into your home
All carpet cleaning companies are NOT the same. Some use harsh cleaning solutions that leave behind residues and allergens. Others use cleaning solutions that are not pet or infant friendly. And sadly, some are unethical and have low (or no reviews) with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.
When having your carpeting cleaned by a professional, make sure they use infant friendly cleaning solutions that are allergen-free. They should use a steam clean process and an acid rinse designed to eliminate residues.
Since your baby is brand new to the world, you need to go to great lengths to keep them healthy.
Steam cleaning your textiles using the appropriate-safe cleaning solutions will help eliminate bacteria and germs that can make your baby sick. Conversely, using a carpet cleaning company who could care less that you are welcoming a new member to your family may use harsh cleaning solutions that can make your baby sick or cause skin irritation due to irritants left behind during the cleaning process.
Certification, Industry recognition, Online reviews, Length of time in business, Proof of insurance
Statistically, sixty-seven percent of people who choose a carpet, tile, or upholstery cleaning company for the first time either use a coupon, call around for the lowest price or call the first company they run across. They do zero research on the business and don’t know what their cleaning procedures are.
These ill-informed consumers have no idea if the technician coming to their home is a convicted child molester, a thief, or felon. They don’t know the company’s reputation, if they perform as promised, or have terrible online reviews.
Imagine inviting someone into your home and allow them to go into your most private areas, and you haven’t bothered doing a simple online search.
No General Liability or Workers Compensation Insurance? That’s YOUR Problem!
Another issue fly by night or unscrupulous carpet cleaning companies may have is that they carry no general liability or workers compensation insurance. Why this should bother a homeowner is simple. If one of their employees gets hurt in your home and the company has no workers compensation insurance to cover their injuries (slip and fall is a big problem), guess who foots the bill? The homeowner’s insurance company does! Furthermore, if the cleaning company does not carry general liability and something ends up walking out of your jewelry box, guess who pays? If the carpet cleaning company can not afford liability insurance, good luck collecting from them.
