How have your experiences been with carpet cleaners? They are coming here to clean all my carpet next week. I would like to know if you were satisfied with your last carpet cleaning?What fregrance can I ask for that will last? Did you ask for any fragrance?

We've lived in our apartment for 3 years and haven't had our carpet done but I'd love to...it needs it. Eventually I'm going to buy a steamer and do it myself. We're not supposed to (it's in our lease) but I will anyways. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Bissel has a great shampooer that is lightweight and works very well. I know that Walmart has them under 100.00. Great luck with the cleaning and appreciate the response!

Yes, years ago I used a professional carpet cleaning service. (one of the large chains that steam the carpet) I was actually not very pleased with the results. The carpet stayed damp for days and I felt that the odors (we had just moved into the home and it had the smell of dog on the carpets) were worse after the cleaning. They did not offer nor did I think to ask about fragrances. Perhaps there are other professional services that would have done a better job. I hope you have a good experience!

Yes, and when they try to do it fast just to get it over with , it happens. I think you have to let them know that you want a good job and you were not happy with what they did last time.

I haven't gotten my carpets cleaned at all since I moved in my townhouse 6 years ago. It's something I need to do, and the only research I've done is some pricing. And of that research, all I know for certain is that I'm going to hire someone to come in and clean the carpets, and not rent a machine and do it myself. Forget that. The cost is similar, so why not get someone else to do it? :D

I agree. I just want to make sure they do it right and not try to rush it too fast like before.I am glad that they are doing it before it gets any colder too! Appreciate your response!

I used to have them professionally cleaned but I bought a steam-cleaner a few years ago and I just do my own now. They did a very good job when I had them done and they had a fragrance called rainforest that I loved. I tried a few and the only one I didn't like was musk. It smelled like wet carpet! LOL Good Luck and hope you find one that you like!
