Looking for some advice on carpet cleaning companies. Presently in the process of buying a home in ocean county, and would like to have the carpets cleaned before moving in. They are in pretty good shape, but I want everything nice and clean before moving in. I am considering either Stanley Steamer or Sears, but I am not against using a lesser known company if they do good work and have reasonable pricing. Any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

We used Stanley Steemer a number of times and were always happy with the results.

To really clean and sanitize your carpets go with someone like The Kleen and Fresh Company. You will know the difference. This is true steam cleaning. A little more money though.

I think Stanley Steemer does a great job. Just make sure you crank the heat afterwards though so they dry a bit quicker.

Carpet Luster - just as good as Stanley Steemer and less expensive.

I have been using Sears for years with clients and can not be happier. They really do a pretty good job and the costs are not too bad as well. Best of luck.

Just make sure they send some one with experience. I have seen carpets ruined by cleaners who didn't know what they were doing.

Exactly what happened to me. A friend recommended a "reasonable" guy who didn't get all the dirt OR soap out. My carpets are a mess. I'm tempted to call Stanley Steemer. Their ads say they can handle anything? I hope so!

I was asking about this a while ago (still have not gotten the carpets cleaned) and then I decided to call a local well regarded carpet store to ask if they could recommend someone. I was so happy I did that because they did have someone they recommended. I was going to use either sears or stanley but I do think they will vary depending on the person doing it for them.
Just a suggestion - I wasnt sure they would recommend anyone but they did.
