Benefits of choosing a carpet cleaning company registered with TACCA

The Approved Carpet Cleaners Alliance is designed to help customers decide which carpet cleaning company they should use. We want to educate the public about the pitfalls of certain carpet cleaning methods and demonstrate the value for money you can get when you choose carpet cleaners who know what they are doing.

In order to be a member of TACCA, carpet cleaners have to offer a certain level of service. We are very strict about this so you can always be sure that wherever you see the TACCA logo it is a seal of approval.

All our members must have:

  • A hot water extraction machine with at least 135psi and twin vacs
  • One rotary machine
  • Some form of mechanical agitation
  • Full insurance
  • At least two forms of recognised training

As members of TACCA they are also involved in a community of carpet cleaners who are passionate about what they do, sharing advice and news about the industry on our members-only forums.

Anyone can say they are a carpet cleaner, but you can rest assured that a TACCA member will have all the skill, equipment and experience required to do a good job. Naturally, when most people look for any product or service they attempt to get the best value for their money. The problem with something like carpet cleaning is that you often have no way of knowing how good the service is until the work has been completed. If you simply choose the cheapest option you might get a terrible service that does more damage than good. At TACCA we want to help you avoid this scenario.

There are many questions you should ask a new carpet cleaner before you decide to use their service, such as:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Do you have relevant training?
  • Are you a member of any Trade Alliances?
  • What type of equipment do you use?
  • Are you fully insured, including All Risks? (insurance against damage to items being worked on)
  • Do you offer any type of written satisfaction guarantee?
  • Better still, try to find a carpet cleaner through the recommendation of others.

We work hard to make sure that being a member of TACCA is a recommendation in itself. We always stay on top of developments in the industry so we can offer the best service possible to our members and help them to pass that on to their customers.
