If you are living in today’s world, you are one a budget. Everything you do must fit into the monthly budget. Many of us have little room for extras beyond the small family excursion here or there. That being said, some items require a higher budget than others and the budget should never ever be based on the cheapest number you can find. When it comes to home cleaning your carpets or any home cleaning or restoration project, do not let cost lead the way. Make room in your budget for thorough and complete, not cheap and fast.
The Cheap Mistake
When you are getting estimates for carpet cleaning services, most estimates will likely come within a range of a few dollars higher or lower. Most companies know the standard of the industry and try to work within the range to be competitive. The mistake comes when you get that one quote that is exponentially lower than the rest. There are costs that go into cleaning a carpet, including equipment, insurance, supplies, and labor. Those charging a much lower price are likely cutting corners somewhere to save money on their bottom end. They may not be licensed and insured, saving them money while limiting your resources should something go wrong. Maybe they are not registered with the state and federal government, meaning they do not have to pay taxes. Or they are not taking the care necessary to do the job right. Not one of these scenarios works well for you. All leave you vulnerable and could end up costing you more in the long run.
Making the Best Choice
This is not to say that you should pay the most expensive bid either. Usually, the most reputable companies are priced competitively and are middle of the road. They are not the cheapest, but they are never the most expensive either. Sometimes, the high price means you are paying for a name, which is not always the best service. Do your research. Once you obtain your quotes, research the reviews. See what others are saying about their experience with your potential cleaner. Ask about the products being used. Most people care about the products being safe for children and pets. Make sure your cleaning company understands what is important to you, and can provide those options. While it may seem like it is just a routine job to clean your carpets, it is actually something that should be handled with care, as the carpets can make or break the look of your home.
