Oakton Carpet Cleaning
Oakton Carpet Cleaning has the goal of providing excellent service and allowing our customers to benefit from our services and attain their goals whether to increase the value of a home for their own enjoyment, increase value for resale or make improvements on a recently purchased home. We’re accustomed to seeing firsthand the reaction to features in a home or office such as those affected by the services provided by Oakton. Much of what we do revolves around the value of a home, real and perceived. We guarantee the reaction of a potential buyer or simply a guest in your home is much more affected by the initial sights and smells they meet when entering your home than the $20,000 you spent remodeling your bathroom. Professional cleaning services like those provided by Oakton Carpet Cleaning help to improve the value of your home or simply make your living experience more enjoyable by utilizing an inexpensive way to upgrade your home.
In addition to the normal services you would expect from a carpet cleaning company like Carpet and Rug Cleaning and Commercial Carpet Cleaning, we also offer Curtains & Drapes Cleaning, restore your carpet after Water Damage and offer Area Rug Cleaning. Additionally we do Stain & Odor Removal like that which inevitably follows pets and young children and perform the messy task of cleaning Air Ducts which can directly affect not only the smell of the house but the health of its inhabitants.
We normally view a home from three perspectives. We meet with an owner looking to sell a home, wanting to know the value of the home and what they could do inexpensively to make the home easier to sell. We make a checklist and agree upon what should be done to increase the home’s value. The first items on the list almost always include services offered by Oakton Carpet Cleaning. Walking in the front door the first thing that noticed is the smell of the home. Instantly we can normally tell if the home has been inhabited by a smoker or cats and dogs. The seller’s last minute efforts to start smoking outside and keep the pets out do nothing to remove the engrained odors. This situation generally calls for a thorough, professional cleaning of the carpets, area rugs, curtains and/or drapes and usually the air ducts as well. You’re fortunate that in this area there are Oakton Carpet Cleaning locations nearby that can handle these jobs. Customers come to Oakton because we provide quality services and excellent prices, always standing behind our work.
The second situation where we normally see a home for the first time is viewing a home with a recent or prospective buyer. The same things apply about smells and what the buyer see’s is very important as well. Whereas the seller who has been living in the home has become accustomed to the spot on the rug, the buyer marks it down as a reason not to buy which could be the difference between a sale and them walking away. In this housing market, many of the homes are vacant due to foreclosure or for other reasons. This puts even more emphasis on the carpeting which the buyer is evaluating whether they may keep it or whether it would have to be replaced. While it would have been better for the seller to have cleaned the carpet before leaving, we have been able to comfort buyers that most stains are easily removed when using the services of Oakton Carpet Cleaning.
Sellers have questioned whether they can simply go to the grocery store and “rent a machine” to clean their carpets? Every time we indicate to them that this is not the area to skimp and the difference in performance between a do-it-yourself job and a professional like Oakton Carpet Cleaning is night and day. Sellers often consider staying in their homes once they saw how nice it looked after a thorough cleaning.
The third and most common instance is when the current homeowner wishes to maintain their home by keeping the carpets, area rugs and drapes cleaned which keeps the home value high and improves their enjoyment of the home.
