Three Big Mistakes People Make When Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Company
Eastern Ohio is far from a small place and so as you might imagine there are a lot of different Dayton, Ohio carpet cleaning companies out there vying for your business. So many in fact that making a choice between them can seem like a very daunting task. Making the wrong choice can be an expensive and frustrating mistake, so giving the matter more than a little thought is a must. Here are three of the most common mistakes people make when choosing a carpet cleaning company:
Making a Choice Based on Price Alone – You see an ad in the local pennysaver that sounds too good to be true – $29.99 carpet cleaning! The whole house! And that is where your search ends. You will obviously be getting a great deal, that’s even miles cheaper than renting a machine at the store!
The problem is that the amazing price is just a way to get you on the phone or for a salesperson to get their foot in the door (sometimes even literally) No reputable, professional carpet cleaning service can afford to offer their full services for $29.99. A couple of cowboys with a rental machine and a bit of water maybe, but not a real pro.
These low prices quickly add up when the carpet cleaning company begins “explaining” all the extra services you are going to need to get properly cleaned carpets though. It is at that point the true costs are revealed and they are all too often a real shock to a homeowner who thought they were going to pay $30 to get a houseful of carpets cleaned!
Making a Choice Based on Equipment Alone – You have done a bit of research online and you think you know just what the very best carpet cleaning equipment is and the first company you come across has it all, so they are the perfect choice right? Not always. Even if an Eastern Ohio carpet cleaning company has every gadget and latest piece of technology in the world if they do not actually have personnel who are trained how to use it properly then it is useless.
Making a Choice Based on First Impressions – Some companies in every industry just love flash. Flashy ads, flashy websites and splashy promotions are their trademark. Some of these companies are indeed great, but looks are not always everything. Creating a website is easy and can be done for about $50 in a week. Building a great carpet cleaning business on the other hand takes time, money and some pretty dedicated people who are willing to go through hours and hours of training.
When speaking to a rep from any carpet cleaning company you are considering ask about certifications, experience and pricing for your unique job. If they can – and are willing – to answer your questions confidently, you may indeed be on to a good thing.
