The average cost to have your carpets professionally cleaned is going to vary from region to region. The main thing that you need to remember is that you get what you pay for. If the price seems too good to be true it usually is. In this economy you have to shop for the best possible deals out there, but choosing the cheapest is not always the best. If you choose a cleaning professional strictly on the basis of the cheapest more times than not you get an under trained technician or less than professional cleaning equipment. With all of that being said here in North Carolina the average cost for a professional to come in and clean a residential dwelling is anywhere between $.30- $.40 per sq foot. That process could be one of the many cleaning systems that we have discussed in previous blogs. Also different companies may market in different ways …3 areas for $69.00 or your whole house for $99.00, but I promise you that when they actually get to your home and give you the exact price it is going to be very comparable to the other cleaning businesses in your area. There is one thing that all cleaning business has in common; they are in the business to make a profit. If the company is not charging enough to spend the proper amount of time on your cleaning needs they are going to have to rush through the job and give you a less thorough job. Also if there is any problem that may arise after the cleaning they have not planned enough profit into the job to be able to come back and make sure that you as a client are extremely ecstatic with the cleaning process. So when you are choosing a Professional Carpet Cleaning company you need to make sure that the final decision in made based on hiring a company that is going to give you quality service not on just who is the cheapest.

I know a lot of companies do not have the space or facility to pick up and take area or oriental rugs and clean them at an off sight facility. So they will try to explain that they can do just as good of a Job cleaning them in your home. First of all if you allow them to clean your area rugs in your home there is more of a chance that there could be damage to the floors underneath the rugs being cleaned. As the owner of Classic Cleaning Service I personally do not want to take the chance of damaging anything of my clients. If you have an area rug cleaned in your home the cost will be substantially cheaper, and the reason why is because you are only receiving a light cleaning to freshen up the looks. That is what a lot of people want. I am not going to say that I have never cleaned an area rug at a client’s home, but the client must understand that by cleaning at their residence they are taking the responsibility for the drying of the rugs. If there is any situation that may occur due to slow drying, it falls on the client. I cannot be held responsible if you do not allow me to clean and dry the rugs properly at our shop. I always urge the client to allow us to remove the rug from their home so that I may properly clean the rug and dry it at our facility. We have large air movers to speed up the drying of the rugs and we will clean the front and back several times to make sure that the most amount of soil is being removed. There are several situations in which the area /oriental rugs need to be flushed heavily with large amount of water to thoroughly remove urine and other contaminants. I do not think that there are many clients that want to have hundreds of gallons of water flushed through their home. With all of that being said you have to do what your client wants, Just make sure that if they do not want to have you to remove the rugs and clean them at your facility that the cleaning will not be as thorough and that there is a chance of damage to the flooring under the rugs being cleaned. SO that they understand that the responsibility is fully on them. AS ALWAYS BO KNOWS FLOORS!
The short answer is yes. Most people think that a dry cleaning method is a no moisture method that is not true when you dry clean something you use a dry cleaning solution that evaporates very quickly. All cleaning methods use some sort of moisture. Some cleaning methods use less moisture than others. Just because the tag on your furniture says dry clean only does not mean that you cannot use moisture on it. What it should say is to be cleaned by a trained professional cleaning technician. If the technician is properly trained he will know how to test the color fastness of the fabric and assess which cleaning process can be used on the furniture in question. When in doubt always call a professional cleaning service like Classic Cleaning Service in concord NC.

Before Sandless refinishing process
After Sand Less Cleaning Process
When you sand and refinish a Harwood floor you remove the entire finish from an existing floor. In this day and time most of the sanding equipment is hooked to a vacuum system that is usually placed outside the facility being sanded to help cut down on the amount of dust left in the home or business. You would first sand the floors down to the bare wood, vacuum the floor clean, and tack the floor with clean rags. After the sanding the next step is to stain the wood to the color that you prefer. The next step is to apply the oil base urethane. Typically there are three coats of urethane applied and it takes approximately 24 -48 hours for each coat to dry. This process usually takes between 4-10 days to complete depending on the size of the floor and costs between $2.00 and $4.00 to complete. This process is also pretty smelly. You would need to vacate the premises while this process is being performed. After the floors have cured and you can replace the furniture you then have the task of cleaning and removing the dust left from this process. As I stated earlier most sanding equipment these days do have a containment system to help lessen the amount of dust in the house but they do not contain it entirely. This is a great process if the floors are heavily damaged where the wood has deep gouges or heavy scratching.
The process that we at Classic Cleaning Service provide is a Sand less recoating process. In most cases the reason you want to refinish your floors is because they no longer shine. The reason they do not shine as much as they did when the finish was new is from little tiny scratches on the surface of the urethane. When your car dose not shine like it did when it was brand new you do not sand all the paint off and repaint it. You polish the existing finish with wax. Our sand less process uses a chemical compound to etch the existing finish (put a texture on the existing Finish). We then apply two coats of our 2 part epoxy compound to bring the floors back to life. This compound is a water base compound so you do not have the caustic smell related with oil base finishes and with it being water based it dries very quickly. The same as the oil based finish you can choose the shine that you wish your floors to be from satin to high gloss. Since our process does not completely remove the existing finish once the floor cures out it is 50% harder than the previous floor. There are several great things about this process. First a 1000 sf of flooring can be refinished in one single day. Secondly you can walk on the floor in about 2-3 hours after the last coat is applied. Third reason is you do not have to leave your home to have this process preformed because the finish is water based so it has very little smell. Finally and the best reason it cost about half the cost of traditional refinishing around $1.00 per sf.
