An anonymous reader writes: Unfortunately, many people these days are being ripped off by their carpet cleaner. These folks are responding to coupons such as $6.95 per room...WHOLE HOUSE $79.95...They are baited by the low price and make an appointment. They think everything is fine. Then when the company gets there, they go for the switch. People find out quickly that carpet cleaning is not as cheap as some would have you believe. These folks find out that the cheap price is for single process cleaning. What that means is it uses only water to clean, no soap. That means that the carpet doesn't get clean at all. You would have been better off renting a machine from the grocery store if you wanted some of the dirt out. Low price usually means low quality. So they pressure you into getting deep cleaning, which you probably need, at an inflated price. Then, they want you to add this, and add that, which can sometimes end up costing you a small fortune. Then you have other companies who rip you off right from the beginning because of their BIG name. What they charge is sometimes hundreds more than what you should be paying.

Carpet cleaning price is based on basically 3 things....type of carpet, amount of soiling, and stains (pet, red stains, grease and oil stains). What level of cleaning you need should be determined before a price is quoted. There are many carpet cleaners who offer an honest and reasonable price for your cleaning needs without trying to price gouge you. We are one of them. We are not the cheapest, but we are far from expensive. One thing is for sure, the value you receive is far greater than the price you pay.
