As a veteran carpet-cleaning business owner and certified carpet rug and upholstery cleaning specialist, many people tell us that they need to cut down on carpet cleaning. They need to have their carpets cleaned, and they want to get a fair price. They use terms such as “that is a large chunk of change” and “exorbitant”.
I tell them that carpet cleaners come in all shapes and sizes, and you don’t get what you pay. I give them some information to help with their re-evaluation.
First, it is crucial to understand carpet.
Wall-to–wall carpet is made of either nylon or polyester or wool and has a polypropylene backing. The backing should never be ruined by carpet cleaning and shouldn’t ever get wet. Carpet manufacturers advise that carpets should be professionally cleaned every two years by an IICRC Certified firm. According to your specific carpet warranty, the carpet is fully guaranteed for seven years if we do this.
If you vacuum frequently, carpet cleaning will cost you between three and five-hundred dollars to clean a house once every two years. Carpet replacement costs can be as high as ten- to twenty-fold.
Don’t be too fixated on the lowest possible price.
Here are some of these things that people shared with me after hiring carpet cleaners at a bargain price:
-The company lacks reliable, well-serviced equipment, and if it fails, damages the carpet.
-The company sends employees who don’t look well and are frightening.
-The company sends English-speaking employees.
-The company sends employees who have a positive attitude.
The company does not show up. This is more common in smaller carpet cleaning jobs. They will not show up if you have a bigger job.
-The carpet takes several days to dry. The carpet will have water marks and a mildew smell.
-The company sends workers who refuse to honor the initial quote and charge much more for “deep” cleaning. This is called “Bait and Switch.”
All carpet cleaning tasks should be performed “deeply.”
There are two options for carpet cleaning: the right and the wrong. A thorough carpet cleaning job must include all pre-conditioning. This will guarantee a thorough and clean job, with no return spots. So you can get your money’s worth and the service will last for around a year.
