How to choose a Carpet Cleaner in Tavistock, Okehampton, Yelverton, Launceston, West Devon & East Cornwall

It can be confusing to know how to choose a carpet or upholstery cleaner, mostly as there is little available information.


To help, we've put together some guidelines - after all, we usually trust someone we don't really know into our homes, with our valued possessions.  

How To Choose a Carpet Cleaner - Halls Premier Carpet Care
  • How experienced are they

  • Have they completed any training courses & can they provide details

  • What process, equipment & products are used & how do they work

  • How long will the work take

  • Do they have public liability & treatment risk insurance in the unlikely event something goes wrong

  • Are the cleaning products they use child & pet safe & environmentally friendly

  • Can they manage your expectations - not all stains will be fully removable, but an experienced, honest carpet cleaner will be able to tell you what the result is likely to be, particularly for spots & stains BEFORE they start the job

Is cheap is good enough? - You usually get what you pay for.  While any clean may appear to improve appearance, a quick 'splash' & 'dash' job could leave the carpet in a poorer state later on.  The cheapest carpet cleaner is not necessarily the best!  So, before you ask a carpet cleaner into your home, check the process they will be using, along with the products they use & ask them how long the job will take.  An honest carpet cleaner will be happy to discuss the finer details with you.

A quality job isn't expensive, it's priceless.

Buyer Beware!  We're aware of carpet cleaners advertising for as little as £20 a room.  A bargain?  Ask yourself how it's possible for anyone to make a living unless the time & care spent on your carpet is significantly reduced or an intentional 'up sale' takes place once

in your home, called bait & switch (a form of fraud).

The best job is not usually the cheapest and the cheapest job is not usually the best.
