Every step of everyday, we make choices – good or bad, responsible or irresponsible. Each of those choices has an impact. It isn’t just the kind of house we live in or the type of car we drive; even other, seemingly irrelevant actions could make a difference; down to the type of carpet cleaning services that we use.
As we strive to make ecologically friendly choices in other areas of life, rug and carpet cleaning is also something worth considering. We looked at the green carpet cleaning services offered by GreenChoice, a company that covers the Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Long Island, Bronx, New Jersey, Staten Island, Westchester and Connecticut areas.
This company provides services such as carpet and area rug cleaning, rug repair, upholstery and leather cleaning, mattress and air duct cleaning. Water damage, carpet repair, carpet re-stretching and commercial carpet cleaning is also undertaken.
One of the things that are encouraging about the service is that they are a family owned concern and have been in the business for the past 20 years. Experience and a proven track record are always pluses in a service of this nature.
Secondly they use organic, non-toxic and biodegradable materials and processes. This is important because while it is important to clean and maintain carpets it is also important that the cleaning process has minimal environmental impact. Regular detergents contain tons of chemicals and researchers are only now finding out what negative impacts their manufacture and use can have on health and the environment.
This is also important for those who have allergies or asthma, breathing problems or intolerances. Other pluses of the service include guaranteed results, free estimates and free pickup and delivery of rugs.
Many customers have claimed to be perfectly happy about the service in terms of cleaning results as well as client services. In particular pet owners, families with small kids and salon owners seem to have had positive experiences.
There also seemed to be few negative reviews… mostly related to charges. One way or the other customers seemed to have misunderstood the pricing structures, which has led to dissatisfaction. So it is best to ask plenty of questions and clarify exactly what you will be getting for your money. Inclusions, exclusions, processes and materials used, time taken, deliveries and so on.
