Beware of Carpet Cleaning Coupons

May 9, 2024

"Buy one get one free." "Get 20% off your cleaning." Everyone loves a good deal. However, not all offers are as lovely as they seem to be. Because of this, it is essential to know all the details before hiring the company that makes the offer.

The Appeal of Carpet Cleaning Coupons

Many coupons come via direct mail, offering ridiculously low prices for carpet cleaning. Many individuals look at the coupon and say, "Wow, that is a price I can afford!" The price they pay, however, is not what is listed on the coupon.
At Hydro Clean Carpet Cleaning in Colorado Springs, we understand the appeal of these deals, but we also recognize the importance of verifying what's included before booking a cleaning. Oftentimes, the coupon has a lot of caveats, so once the carpet cleaner gets to your house, the workers will explain how your particular carpet, house or stains do not qualify for the deal on the coupon.

Reasons They May Be Offering Such a Low Price

Bare Minimum Cleaning - The carpet cleaning offered on the coupon does not include any detergent, pre-spotting, stain removal or power scrubbing

Reduced Operating Expenses - Some companies may have lower prices if they aren't offering their employees workers compensation or liability insurance. This means if their worker gets hurt on your property, you can be held liable.

Independent Contractors - Some carpet cleaning companies hire independent contractors. When doing so, they often make them responsible for purchasing their own carpet cleaning chemicals. Then, these workers can resort to using high-pressure sales tactics to cover the cost of the chemicals. There is also the possibility they may dilute the solutions, which reduces the quality of your cleaning.

What To Do Before Using A Carpet Cleaning Coupon

Thankfully, there are steps you can take to make sure you get a quality clean at a reasonable price. 

  1. Verify what is included in the offer and make sure there isn't any fine print that will exclude your carpet
  2. Ask if they will provide a certificate of insurance and a written guarantee
  3. Ask for references
  4. Look at reviews on the Better Business Bureau, Angie's List, Yelp, etc.
