Beware of Bait and Switch Tactics
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 Value Pak or via direct mail, advertising to clean your carpets for $6.95 per room! It may seem like a great deal, but 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 CANT! The gas alone, to get to your home would make this a losing proposition for the company. Then there are cleaning agents, set up 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, only using clear water. Take it from me you cannot properly clean even a lightly soiled carpet without proper cleaning agents such as pre-conditioner, emulsifier & various spot cleaners. They have these products in their truck, but if they USE them on your carpets, your $6 a room price just went up to $75. Then, there is 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 in your home!
These companies hire right off the street and pay on a commission basis. Commission on what? On all of the up-sell, of course! They are routinely sued, go out of business, and resurface under a new name. Save yourself the trouble!
