Be aware of companies using “bait & switch” techniques!
You’re ready to have your wall-to-wall carpeting professionally cleaned and want to get the best job for the best price, right?
You may have received a coupon in a Valpak or via direct mail, advertising $6.95 per room! What a great deal, huh? How can they afford to charge such a low price? As a reputable business owner who has been serving this area, I can tell you with all certainty, THEY CAN’T! The gas alone, to get to your home would make this a losing proposition for the “company.” Then there are cleaning agents, setup and tear down time, and the actual job labor—a firm charging $6 or $9 a room would soon go broke.
How/why are they charging this price? The answer is simple — bait & switch! Here is a typical scenario: Once inside your home, you are informed that the advertised price is for “basic steam cleaning” – in other words, clear water. Take it from me, you cannot properly clean even a lightly soiled carpet without proper cleaning agents, such as pre-conditioner, emulsifier, and various spot cleaners. Oh, they have these products on their truck, but if they use them on your carpets, your $6 a room price just went up to $75. Then, there’s the high pressure add-on sales (Scotchguard, deodorizing) as well as a charge for moving any furniture. Throw in the “nominal travel charge” and the 2 rooms you thought you would be paying $12 to clean have just cost you $300, not to mention the lousy job performed by the inexperienced technician you’ve been sent! These companies hire right off the street and pay on a commission basis. Commission on what? On all of the upsell, of course! They’re routinely sued, go out of business, and resurface under a new name. Save yourself the trouble!
