How to Avoid Being Scammed on Carpet Cleaning

Confused couple looking at a tablet screen

The last thing you want is to be nickel-and-dimed on a carpet cleaning job that leaves you with less than desirable results. With so many different cleaning businesses out there, you'll want to make sure that the person you are hiring is qualified for the job! Here are some warning signs to look out for:

Confirm the Business is "IICRC" Certified

The IICRC, or Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, ensures that the individual or cleaning company you are hiring is well-educated when it comes to carpet cleaning, identifying types of fibers, soiling conditions, and other aspects of cleaning carpet. Most authentic cleaning businesses will display this qualification on their website or social media pages. You wouldn't want a random person from Craigslist with no professional education and training to come and clean your home!

Make Sure They are Upfront About Pricing

Many cleaning companies will initially tell you one price and then try to up-charge you for basic services that should come with the cleaning. Always read the fine print and beware of any hidden charges. Furthermore, if a cleaning company can't offer a 100% money-back satisfaction policy, then they aren't fully confident in their work or services that they provide.

Find Out How Long They Have Been in Business For

Naturally, someone who has been in the industry for a long time will have a lot more experience when it comes to carpet cleaning. Chances are that they have dealt with many different types of dirty carpets in homes and know just how to handle those situations.

Read Customer Reviews or Testimonials

Perform a Google search for reviews that others have left about a particular company or look on the company's website. See what people are saying about the cleaning company's services. If a business does a spectacular job at cleaning, most customers would be more than happy to write about their positive experience.
