Are there any good Carpet Cleaners out there?
 
Time for a carpet cleaning. Some use steam, some use chemicals, some use brushes and cleaner. Any advice?

I am also looking for a good carpet cleaner. Please post here if you've had your carpets cleaned and are happy with the results. ;D

We've used Stanley Steamer twice in the last 18 months.
Once when we moved in and once after a 4 day visit by relatives with 6 children under 12.
Stanley was reputable, reliable, professional & did a great job.

I used the services of ECO-POWER+ and Scott Brown (352-552-3026). With 23 years of experience and some ultra impressive new hi tech equipment, this owner operator walks the talk. Not only did he restore the newness to our carpets, but we found him to be very knowledgable and helpful. It was the best carpet cleaning job we have ever had.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to you based on the quality workmanship I have observed.

fiddle, would you care to share cost and how many rooms? Maybe we can get a half a dozen TOTV'ers to sign up and get a group discount to boot....Thanks

Alm: I looked in the phone book and there are a bunch of Stanley Steamers. Is it the one in Leesburg that you used? Do you have a telephone number?

Thanks Fiddlemyre, I will contact Scott Brown for a phone quote.

Golfnut: Good idea about a TOTV group discount; I bet that could apply to a lot of things.

Before I moved to TV I had a really bad experience with Stanley Steamer so cannot bring myself to use them again. Beware--they are big with bait and switch.

Hi,

We used Stanley Steamers. We had no problems.

Cost was $248 to clean, deodorize and stain proof the carpet. We have a 1392 square foot Designer Home and everything except the kitchen and bathrooms are carpeted. They even cleaned inside the closets.

We knew what the cost would be before they arrived - competed an on line form

Hope2b .. Can you explain what you mean about Stanley Steamer bait and switch???
They gave me an estimate on the phone and are coming Monday to clean my carpets. Hope it's the same people Hyacinth used and recommends.

Since they had no problem with Stanley Steamer here I should have kept my mouth shut. It was back in the olden days before we had computers. There was an ad for $99 whole house. I told them that was what I wanted because this was a rental. They came out and kept after me about needing extra treatments. Being young and gullable I gave in to many of the extras. They were so excited that they talked me into more services that they ran into a tree on the way out of my driveway and Never did stop.

Hope, funny story!

Stanley Steamer seemed quite professional on the telephone and gave me a choice of two prices, one for cleaning and another if you choose to add a protective agent. They say they give a guarantee and will return if you're not happy and do it again. I'll post my happiness level on tuesday!

Ditto what fiddlemyre said. Scott did an excellent job and corrected some of the less than professional installation areas left by TV quickie installation. I will have him back and highly recommend his service.

Used Stanley Steamer when I first got here. Was very unhappy. I could have done a better job with my Bissell. I called them back and they did redo it, including moving sofa this time around but I still would not use them again.

I used Scott Brown also. And I agree that he did a tremendous job on our carpets. I would definitely use him again.
