Avoid the lowest price option
Sure, you want to save money, but when it comes to carpet cleaning, the company with the lowest price may not be the best choice.
Sometimes these companies offer a low price simply to get a foot in the door. Once they come to your home, they'll identify many other issues to upsell and get you to buy more expensive services. Make the decision based on quality and recommendations first, and consider price as a secondary option.
Ask about included services
The advertised price you see when shopping for carpet cleaning companies is typically just a base price. Extra services will cost more, and you need to know what these other costs might be.
As you call carpet companies, ask what is included in the quoted price. Will they move furniture for you? Will they clean high-traffic areas? Does it cost extra to clean stairs? These are the type of questions you should ask before making a hiring decision.
Consider the employees
When you hire carpet cleaners, you're letting strangers into your home. Make sure to only hire a company that screens its employees and conducts criminal background checks. A quality carpet cleaning company should take responsibility for its employees and make amends if the carpet or your belongings are damaged during the cleaning process.
