The quick answer to this is that they don’t. In reality the quality of carpet cleaning equipment varies hugely from one company to another. Whereas some local carpet cleaners may be happy to use a budget hot water extraction machine, we prefer to use top notch equipment which delivers outstanding results. Sure when we first started up we would have loved to use cheaper equipment if it had delivered the same results, but we knew that it couldn’t and that’s why we chose the best equipment in the industry.
The problem with cheaper cleaning equipment is that it doesn’t compare to the results that can be obtained from the modern powerful machines that we use. It also begs the question that if carpet cleaners are prepared to skimp on their equipment are they also failing to employed skilled technicians, provide further training, and comprehensive insurance?
It’s the cost of purchasing, maintaining, and running high end equipment together with keeping insurances and training up to date, that is likely to add a few more dollars to the bill.
We like to think the results are more than worth it.
Before opting for the cheapest carpet cleaning service you might want to consider:
- How much would it cost you to replace all your carpets and upholstery. With the right equipment and experienced technicians it is possible to bring carpets back to their new condition.
- Would you be happy for your carpets to look marginally better or would you rather they were fresh, clean and hygienic?
- Would you feel disappointed if you had saved yourself $20 but the results didn’t live up to your expectations?
Professional carpet cleaning should be considered a necessary investment which prolongs the life of your carpets and furnishings and saves money on replacing them. It shouldn’t be overly expensive but neither should it be too cheap, and if it is, then there’s usually a reason.
Typically the carpet cleaning industry is divided into two categories.
Operators that use quality equipment, are highly trained and fully insured – the results are also back with a 100% guarantee.
Carpet cleaners who use cheap shoddy equipment, have little or no training, and are not insured.
By choosing a company in the first category you can be short of the best possible results and also eliminate the chance of damage or expensive mistakes. Which will you choose?
