We also enjoy the privilege of returning a product we have purchased online if it does not meet our expectations. Wouldn’t it be nice if home services worked this way too?
Cheap Carpet Cleaners
Many homeowners make the mistake of using a “cheap” Carpet Cleaning service because they are lured in by the price.

When the “cheap” carpet cleaner shows up at their home and delivers a high-pressure sales pitch and substandard Cleaning, it is too late for the homeowner, they’ve been HAD!
When it comes to carpet, tile or upholstery cleaning in SW Florida, you will get what you pay for.
High quality or cheap carpet cleaning services?
An excellent carpet cleaning service will use top quality products that gently but effectively treat your carpets without damaging them or leaving a sticky residue to promote re-soiling. This is especially important if you have pets, children or anyone in the home with an allergy.
Cheap products can strip carpets and leave damaging chemical residues and a high pH which is detrimental to fibers. Cheap cleaning solutions leave behind contaminants that pollute indoor air quality, not to mention skin rashes on babies and pets who may be crawling around on the carpeting.
Professional Carpet Cleaners
A quality carpet cleaning company will employ professionals in the field who can accurately assess the nature of your job and apply the right treatments in a reliable, results-driven way. Carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning is a specialist field and requires an expert touch.
Anybody, no certification necessary, can perform a cheap service. Cheap carpet cleaning companies could care less if your pets are allergic to their cleaning solutions, and forget about customer service after the sale.
Certification, Industry Recognition and Consumer Advocacy
A quality carpet cleaning company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the International Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI). They will also have high rankings with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.
Quality companies will employ experienced-certified technicians, utilize industry leading equipment and safe cleaning solutions, and will maintain liability and workers compensation insurance to protect their clients and employees.
Many “cheap” carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning companies could care less about industry certification, top quality equipment, reviews, or insurance. For the most part, their clients could care less either, until something goes wrong.
Reviews, Reviews, Reviews
