Rip-Off #1: Unbelievably Low Price: To some degree, all of us are attracted by low price because we want to work within a budget. Some carpet cleaner’s use price as the bait for their false and misleading advertising they offer a cheap price; usually between $5 – $9.95 per room – and then once they are in your home, they pressure you into buying “add-ons”. It’s as if you were buying car and found that the dealer was charging you extra for the tires and steering wheel. Carpet cleaning is not as cheap as some unethical carpet cleaners would like you to believe.
Rip-Off #2: Bait and Switch: Dual process carpet cleaning describes the process of shampooing or heavy preconditioning, followed with hot water extraction cleaning. Unfortunately, unethical carpet cleaners often use dual process as a bait and switch techniques. Here’s how it’s done: First, they “bait” you with a basic cleaning (single process) at an unbelievably low price. Then when you call, they try to “switch” to a more expensive dual-process cleaning. If you don’t fall for their switch and choose their basic service, you will likely receive poor workmanship using little or no chemical and they won’t guarantee their work.
Rip-Off #3: Unsupported Claims for example, “This cleaning method is the best” – You will read this in almost every ad. You will hear this from most carpet cleaners. But remember this; the method that is best for you is the method that achieves your goal. If you want a method that dries quickly, then a method that takes a long time to dry isn’t the best for you. So identify your objectives, then select the method that is best for you.
Rip-Off #4: Outdated Beliefs, example Hot Water Damages Your Carpet – Many people believe that their carpets are damaged by technicians who didn’t know how to properly clean using hot water. Today we know this is false. By washing, and then rinsing your carpet with hot water, your carpet is thoroughly cleaned, much the same way that a person who showers and then rinses off the dirt and soap will be much cleaner that the person who only takes a sponge bath.
