Common Mistakes People Make When Hiring a Carpet Cleaner
Whether you’re planning a quiet family get together or a grand celebration this holiday season, cleaning your house will be at the top of your list of things to do. To make sure everything’s perfect, you may be tempted to take advantage of the holiday discounts on carpet cleaning services.
While that’s a great idea, make sure to choose your cleaners based on their service quality and experience. If you don’t, you’re likely going to regret your choice once the job is done. To help you avoid choosing poor quality carpet cleaners, Preferred Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when hiring a carpet cleaner.
1. Hiring carpet cleaners from flyers
The most common mistake when hiring a carpet cleaner is to hire someone from a “Flyer Coupon” received in the mail. Usually, the coupon will show the least expensive price and exclude any “additional fees” or they might publish the conditions in the fine print so that you can’t read them.
2. Choosing carpet cleaners based on promotions
Many customers fall for the bait and switch tactics used in company promotions and coupons. The promotion will include a low price without specifying what is included in that price. The technician will then “up-sell” more services when the customer call to inquire or book their cleaning services.
3. Enlisting inexperienced carpet cleaners
Hire a reputable company that uses professional and knowledgeable technicians that do quality work. When you call them, they should be able to provide you with a cleaning package or bundled price for the services you want. That way, you can avoid being “up-sold” by the technician. Also, make sure you know what the price includes before approving the service to go forward.
4. Choosing the cheapest carpet cleaners
Hiring the “cheapest priced company” is not always the best idea either. The phrase “you get what you pay for” is accurate in many cases, and carpet cleaning is one of those cases. While you may get an inexpensive price, you may end up with poor results and have to hire someone else to fix it, which will cost you more money in the long run.
5. Not researching your carpet cleaners
Make sure the company you hire is not a “fly by night” start-up company that has no experience or track record. Ask questions about how long the company has been in business, the expertise of the technicians have, and what services they provide.
