Higher price isn’t always a good indication for higher quality of the service. When you are comparing companies and prices for carpet cleaning you should check their website as well as ask the following questions:
- Is it a professional carpet cleaning company? You don’t need carpet cleaners who aren’t professional in their methods and approach. They usually don’t have the experience, products or equipment to do a professional end of tenancy cleaning, for example.
- Does the company have positive customer reviews? Look for testimonials on their website on ask your friends.
- Are the carpet cleaners certified and fully insured? Make sure you ask to see a liability insurance certificate.
- Do carpet cleaning company’s prices include VAT? Some services don’t include VAT and the price you see on their websites isn’t the price you actually get. They may not be registered for VAT so ask to make sure.
If you’re having your whole house cleaned the cost can reach hundreds of pounds, but many companies do reasonable discounts. Make a thorough research and call the company you have chosen. Even a short conversation about their experience and how they will proceed with the carpet cleaning will often highlight eventual problems. Most reputable carpet cleaners will have testimonials from independent third party sites.
