The carpet cleaning industry has a dirty reputation, thanks to the unsavory business practices of many companies. According to Angie's List, "high-pressure sales tactics" are all too common among commission-based salespeople who prey on "a lack of consumer familiarity with the (cleaning) process".
Some of the most common 'scams' among unscrupulous carpet cleaners include:
As with any product or service, if a carpet cleaning company advertises unbelievably low prices, chances are good there's a scam involved. Watch out for the 'fine print' that can include extra charges for deep-pile carpet, travel costs, multi-level homes and even fake 'enviro' fees!
Sub-Contracting Out The Work
Some established carpet cleaning companies don't actually clean carpets at all - they're simply salespeople who line up cleaning jobs that they sub-contract out to fly-by-night cleaners. With this scam, customers believe they are paying for professional carpet and rug restoration services, only to wind up with an unlicensed, inexperienced laborer coming into their homes to clean their fine floor coverings!
Pushing Unnecessary Products
There are many carpet cleaning companies that would rather sell products than actually clean carpets - these are the businesses that use aggressive sales techniques to market expensive cleaning solutions, deodorizers, stain blockers and antibacterial sprays that are over-priced and are no more effective than the products sold at your local grocery store!
