How to Choose a Carpet Cleaner

Carpet cleaner and vanThere is no single criteria for selecting a carpet cleaning service provider. Several combined factors should be considered in the selection decision.

Price. If an advertised price sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Legitimate business people have legitimate expenses that must be covered to make a profit. They include taxes, insurance, wages and employee benefits, vehicles and quality tools of trade. It is unlikely that a professional carpet cleaner with all these expenses could thoroughly clean your house or business for $10.00 to $15.00 per room.

Quality. Never should the price of cleaning services be the sole criteria for selecting a carpet cleaner. Higher prices do not necessarily mean ‘rip-off’. In all professions, quality work deserves a quality price.

Truth in advertising. Read the fine print in advertised specials to find out exactly what the price includes.

Training. Professional cleaning firms require management and employees to engage in formal training. Consumers should enquire about the training of the person that he/she engages to clean the carpet in the home/business.

Experience. The years of experience a firm has, combined with formal training programs, contribute significantly to the experience and proficiency of its employees.
