Most people’s concern when hiring people to work in their home or business is whether or not the carpet cleaning company is trustworthy, reliable and gets good results.
It can be expensive to find out the hard way that a company’s carpet cleaning standards do not match their claims. One way to avoid this is to ask for and check a reference.
It happens all the time and in many industries that a reference is given but not checked. Why is it that we take people’s claims about their work at face value, when a quick phone call might save us the grief of getting substandard work done.
Ask for a reference when you are hiring a carpet and rug cleaning company to come into your home or business! You are entitled to know what to expect.
On every quote we send out, we include at least 3 references. We encourage people to call our references first for their own peace of mind.
Not necessarily. Not too many carpet cleaning companies publish their mistakes or shortcomings. Still, with careful reading you can get a much better idea of the quality of the cleaning company you are researching.
Almost all websites carry testimonials of their company’s work. It is helpful to note the dates attached to each testimonial.
The more testimonials given, the more current they are, the better. Also look out for carpet cleaning testimonials from commercial carpet cleaning clients. Companies will not usually allow their name to be used as a reference unless they are certain of the company being recommended.
The after sales service offered by carpet and upholstery cleaning professionals is also something worth checking out. Are they insured against damage? (It can happen on occasion.) Do they give a 100% no quibbles money back guarantee? They should (see why we do offer this). Why not? If they are as good as they say, there should be no problem. Do they check in after the job has been done to ensure that everything was satisfactory?
You should also look out for the associations that a company has. For example, are they certified by a carpet cleaning certification body such as the NCCA (National Carpet Cleaners Association) or the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification)?
The whole point is this, a little research and care before booking your carpet cleaning can go a long way to ensuring you get a trustworthy carpet cleaning company with proven results and a happy experience all round.
