Wendie Zeller is a Homeowner. She said, "Good price, I needed the bedrooms done, and for four rooms, so I just bought it."
It can be difficult to get your carpets steamed without getting taken to the cleaners.
Angie Hicks of Angie's List says, "One common complaint we've heard over the years when it comes to carpet cleaning companies is suggesting a price that just seems too low to be true. What happens is they get there and the consumer ends up paying more than they expected."
To avoid those added extras, experts recommend homeowners insist on a written, detailed estimate on what the company will do for the advertised price. And never be shy about sharing your own family's details.
Hicks adds, "Do you have pets, do you have kids, do you have special areas that need treatments because you've had spills? The more information you give them, the more prepared they can come to do the actual project in case you need special cleaners for some difficult spots. "
Chris Stone has been cleaning carpets professionally for over seven years. He suggests homeowners do a little work to save a little dough.
Stone said, "Everything you can do to help it move faster when they come to clean your carpets. The time that we save from you moving those things, we actually pass those savings on to you."
