Don’t Fall for Bait & Switch

These days, everyone is looking for a deal to make their hard-earned money go further. Whether it’s a coupon in the mail or an ad in the local newspaper, you’ve probably seen the rock-bottom prices that some cleaning companies advertise (“4 rooms for $60” or “$4.95 per room”).
Beware of these ads! What may seem like an incredible deal in the beginning may turn out to be an expensive lesson in “bait and switch” tactics.

Here’s How the Bait and Switch Works:

You set an appointment based on the low price indicated in the ad. The carpet cleaning company comes to your home with no intention of honoring the published price. Instead, the technician may aggressively push “extras” under the guise that your carpet may be ruined without them.
These extras include:

  • Pre-conditioning of heavily-trafficked carpet areas.
  • Pet pretreatment even if there are no pet stains on the carpet.
  • A protective solution sprayed after cleaning.
  • Vacuuming the area.
  • Moving furniture.

Such charges can quickly add hundreds of dollars to your bill.

We also understand that our customers live within certain budgets. That’s why we work with them to develop a cleaning plan based on their needs and budget.
