Look for properly qualified professionals. NCCA, Proclean are two training organisations.
Regrettably there are a lot of 'cowboys' in the profession.
A proper job would start with a quote, the operative should test the condition, structure and fabric of the carpet - in advance of the quoted price - you should ask to see certification, if none is presented then do not use their service, no matter how much spiel they have!. The quote should be given pro forma, with contractual obligations exchanged. Don't EVER let someone near your very expensive floor covering unless you are totally re-assured that the operative has full public liability insurance.
On the day the operative should have either a huge truck mounted machine or a sizeable 'portable' machine - at least the size of a small fridge!.
The work should start with a thorough vacuuming with a big UPRIGHT vacuum cleaner, followed by a 'prespray' to release soil from the tufts, finally, a rinse using either the big machine in the van the fridge sized portable.
All furniture should be protected from the wet carpet by pads. A powerful fan heater may be used to dry the carpet more rapidly. All waste water should be disposed in the toilet.
Good luck!
