In the digital era, you’re never going to struggle to find a local carpet cleaner.
And with a number of companies to choose from, you’d think that it would be pretty straightforward to choose a competent company.
But this isn’t always the case, and many people have had disappointing experiences with carpet cleaning companies.
There are many reasons for this. Here are three mistakes you need to avoid when searching for a local carpet cleaner:
Making a decision based purely on price
Everyone has a budget.
But in the carpet cleaning world, opting for the cheapest company is usually a big mistake.
They are often the cheapest for a reason:
- Shoddy equipment.
- No insurance.
- Lack of training.
- No track record.
- No integrity.
While some cheap deals are very tempting, it pays to do your research.
Not checking previous work and reviews
When you’re looking for a competent carpet cleaner, it is important to check their credentials, previous results and read their reviews.
Does the company have good feedback over a long period?
Are they fully insured and qualified
Do they have photos and examples of their results?
A few minutes of research can save you a lot of future headaches!
Choosing the first available company
Great, you’ve decide to have your carpets cleaned.
But while you may want them done yesterday, a little patience will pay off in the long run.
Unless you have a stain that urgently needs treating, it is wise to take into account the above points and make a considered choice.
We’d also recommend searching for a an NCCA affiliated company so that you have the peace of mind that they are fully trained and insured.
