Why Hiring Carpet Cleaning Services Can Be An Absolute Minefield

The carpet cleaning services for the most part do an excellent job of keeping your carpets clean and smelling great. It’s a crowded business though, and some businesses just find it hard to keep up. Sometimes, they have to cut corners and otherwise act in ways that aren’t entirely ethical. You need to learn to tell when they aren’t treating you correctly. Keep these pointers in mind the next time you hire a service.

Have you ever seen one of those ads that the carpet cleaning services put out, where they claim that they’ll do three rooms of carpet cleaning for maybe $49.95? Sometimes, they even claim to do it for less. What exactly happens when an you hire a company out of one of those ads?

Well, you can guess – they send some poorly trained, poorly motivated and often thuggish person around, and he does a very poor job. The kicker is that at the end, he’ll try to charge you $500, and he’ll have all kinds of reasons why that’s completely reasonable. This is what happens when you respond to advertising that is quite obviously false. Hire carpet cleaning services and the right way though, and you’ll end up with a clean carpet that lasts longer; it won’t cost you that much.

The first question that you need to ask is, what kind of reputation the carpet cleaning company has. Some companies simply try to get by on their superlow prices, and you can just tell by the way they advertise that they don’t really take pride in their work. You don’t want to go with them. And then there are the carpet cleaning services that seem to franchise at a breakneck speed and advertise at the top of their lungs. The charge reasonable prices, but you can tell by the high-volume high-pressure way in which they conduct their business that in fact they really don’t have the time to pay attention to quality.

And finally, there are the businesses that seem low-volume and that charge more than the other two kinds of company, but you can tell just by the way they conduct themselves that they are educated in their trade and that they care. This isn’t just something that applies to the carpet cleaning services. In just about every kind of service there is from auto repair to house painting, you can find businesses that fall under these three categories. You will have all kinds of problems going with other two.

What kind of problems will you get? Well, when they charge you 10 times more, they’ll say that the price they advertised was for a certain kind carpet and yours is this new kind that needs their special “dual scrub a deep cleaning system”. The day after they leave, you’ll notice that your carpeting now has a white residue on it that’s un-rinsed soap. Of course, you’re never getting them back to finish the job.

Just remember that there are plenty of companies that do shoddy work because good, motivated, and even educated workers are expensive. That little piece of insight alone should help you know which the good carpet cleaning services are.
