Misconception #1: You Should Wait as Long as
Possible Before Cleaning Your Carpet.
False. A dirty carpet will not last as long as a clean carpet. And while
vacuuming helps, it's simply not enough.
Misconception #2: The Only Reason to Clean
Carpet is to Remove Soil / Dirt.
False. As you probably know, outdoor air
contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust
and hundreds of other chemicals. When you come into your home, you carry those
pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair, on your skin, clothing and shoes.
Not surprisingly, all of those chemicals and toxins wind up in your
Misconception #3: One Method of Carpet
Cleaning is as Good as Another.
False. You can choose from three main
methods: 1. Steam Cleaning. 2. Shampooing (sometimes referred to as dry carpet
cleaning) and, 3. dry organic carpet cleaning (always includes the use of a
physical granular product).
Misconception #4: Having the Right
Equipment is All a Company Needs to Clean Your Carpets Properly.
False. Many companies own the right equipment
but a large number of employees don't know how to use it. You probably know
someone who bought the newest computer on the market but didn't learn how to use
it for a year or more. The same is true with carpet cleaning. The
company may own good equipment, but the employees may not know how to use it
correctly. This is why it's important that you choose your carpet cleaner
The Company that Offers the Lowest Price is the Company You Should
Maybe -- but not always. Here are two important points to
Point #1: The price you see offered may not be for the
services you want performed.
Before you select a company, decide what you want
to accomplish. If you want the carpet cleaner to remove only some of the dirt,
you can choose from hundreds of companies. Or, you can even rent a machine at the grocery store and do
the job yourself.
Point #2: The price you see advertised
is probably not the price
you will pay.
Many homeowners have learned that the low price they saw
advertised was not the amount they were charged.
if you've ever hired a carpet cleaner, you too may have been
the victim of false or misleading advertising. You probably learned the hard way
that some carpet cleaners offer a cheap price -- usually between $5.95 and $9.95
per room -- and then pressure you into paying a lot more once they get inside
your home. Some of them may even break the law by using illegal bait and switch
As in all businesses and professions, the carpet cleaning industry
has its share of bad apples. We take no pleasure in telling you this, but some
are unethical -- and sadly, a few are dishonest. By their misleading advertising
and false promises, they cast a dark shadow on our entire industry.
Then you'll find other carpet cleaners -- 1-800 DRYCARPET®
who work hard to earn your trust and respect. As a way of improving our profession,
is dedicated to educating the public. The only way you can make an intelligent decision is to
have all the facts you need.
Misconception #6: Any Honest Carpet Cleaning
Company Should be Able to Give You an Exact Price Quote Over the
We wish this was true, but it isn't. Customers often think that if
they want to clean four rooms and the price is $9 per room, then the price will
be $36. But this isn't always true. First, honest, reputable carpet cleaning
companies usually price carpet cleaning by the square foot. So if you'd like
to tell you the exact cost of cleaning your carpet, we need to know the exact
number of square feet that you want cleaned. To get an accurate measurement, we
need to measuring the exact size of the carpet area.
You'll be glad to know that the carpet area to be cleaned is not
nearly as great as most people think, For example, if you want your entire home
cleaned and your home is 2000 square feet, the amount of carpeting to be cleaned
might be only 800-1000 square feet. This is because most home measurements are
outdoor measurements. Plus we deduct the area taken up by furniture that is not
moved; such as beds, dressers, entertainment centers ... and of course you
probably have non carpeted areas such as; a kitchen, entry way and bathrooms. The result is that the actual area to be cleaned is usually only
about 60% of the square footage of the home.
