Bait & Switch
Be aware of companies using “bait-n-switch” techniques!
You want to get the best price for your carpet cleaning right?
You may have received a coupon in a Val Pak or by direct mail, advertising $6.95 per room or $9.95 a room! That is a great deal! Right? You have to ask yourself 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 CAN’T! It is simply not possible. The gas alone, to get to your home would cause them to lose money before they even start the job. Then there are cleaning chemicals, set up and tear down time, and the actual job labor—a firm charging $6 or $9 a room would soon go broke.
How are they charging this price? The answer is simple—Bait & Switch! Here is a familiar scenario: After arriving at your home, you are informed that the advertised price is for ‘basic steam cleaning’–in other words, just water. Take it from me; you cannot properly clean even a lightly soiled carpet without proper chemicals, such as spotters, pre-spray, emulsifiers, de-greasers etc, but if you want chemicals used you must pay more, Oh, they have these products on their truck, but if they USE them on your carpets, your $6 a room price just went up to $75. Then, there’s the high pressure add on sales such as protector, or deodorizing. 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 you’ve been sent! These companies hire right off the street and pay on a commission basis. Commission on all of the up sell, of course! They get sued, go out of business, and re-open under a new name. Take the advice of a professional. If it sounds too good to be true. It is. In this industry you get what you pay for.
