How many of us have responded to an add in the newspaper or mailer that had a carpet cleaning offer which was too good to pass up? You know what I mean….5 rooms for $39….or something similar. So you call and book an appointment. When the guy shows up, he looks like a cousin of Charles Manson carrying a some kind of bucket full of dirty water and a mop!! At that point you are thinking about calling the police. However, after he does his demonstration of “deep cleaning” he shows you how much it will REALLY cost to clean those 5 rooms. What??? $379?? These folks are called “Bait & Switch” companies. You don’t want to touch them with a ten foot pole! Always check the credentials of the company you are thinking about hiring. Also go to www.iicrc.org to find a certified carpet cleaner in your area. When in doubt, don’t ever fall for a price that is too good to be true! Best of Luck!
