How to choose a Carpet Cleaner in Tavistock, Okehampton, Yelverton, Launceston, West Devon & East Cornwall
It can be confusing to know how to choose a carpet or upholstery cleaner, mostly as there is little available information.
To help, we've put together some guidelines - after all, we usually trust someone we don't really know into our homes, with our valued possessions.
How experienced are they
Have they completed any training courses & can they provide details
What process, equipment & products are used & how do they work
How long will the work take
Do they have public liability & treatment risk insurance in the unlikely event something goes wrong
Are the cleaning products they use child & pet safe & environmentally friendly
Can they manage your expectations - not all stains will be fully removable, but an experienced, honest carpet cleaner will be able to tell you what the result is likely to be, particularly for spots & stains BEFORE they start the job
Is cheap is good enough? - You usually get what you pay for. While any clean may appear to improve appearance, a quick 'splash' & 'dash' job could leave the carpet in a poorer state later on. The cheapest carpet cleaner is not necessarily the best! So, before you ask a carpet cleaner into your home, check the process they will be using, along with the products they use & ask them how long the job will take. An honest carpet cleaner will be happy to discuss the finer details with you.
A quality job isn't expensive, it's priceless.
Buyer Beware! We're aware of carpet cleaners advertising for as little as £20 a room. A bargain? Ask yourself how it's possible for anyone to make a living unless the time & care spent on your carpet is significantly reduced or an intentional 'up sale' takes place once
in your home, called bait & switch (a form of fraud).
The best job is not usually the cheapest and the cheapest job is not usually the best.
