Ask the Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Expert – Paolo Mancuso
How can I find a good carpet cleaner?
For some it is a better kept secret than how the caramel gets in the Caramilk, so here`s the real truth about carpet cleaners in North America. Since there are no provincial/state standards or regulations in the cleaning industry, virtually all the cleaners learn their skill set at your expense. The cleaner only has to lease equipment, since buying is no longer a prerequisite for business, and the vendor will offer turn-key instruction on how to be a ‘’professional cleaner.’’ Additionally, some store-front organizations in Canada offer 1 or 2 day crash cleaning courses and then issue a ‘’certificate of accreditation.’’ Either way, there`s no real guarantee of expertise or quality. However, at Mancuso`s we have only fully apprenticed and professionally trained staff that received their 4000-plus hours in theory and supervised practicum out of a fully modern cleaning plant. Expert instruction in the make-up and cleaning of textiles (carpets, area rugs and upholstery) is taught, and all staff are fully proficient in cleaning technologies before they represent our company in your home. So, your best bet is to look for cleaners who started their career training out of a full service cleaning plant.
