Beware Carpet Cleaning Offers That Seem Too Good to Be True

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, the top Toronto carpet cleaning company, tells its clients to beware of carpet cleaners offering promises that are too good to be true.

In the U.K., a scam was recently uncovered where carpet cleaners would offer to visit a location and clean it for a low price. Once they got their foot in the door, the cleaners would claim they had uncovered another problem, such as an insect infestation, or suggest a more intensive cleaning at a higher price. If a Toronto carpet cleaner contacts you with an offer like this, we recommend declining the offer and hiring a professional cleaner, such as Clean-Slate.

At Clean-Slate, we are up-front about our prices and the services we offer. We will never make false claims that we found additional problems, and if we really did find any, we would show you first, letting you know that having additional work done is entirely optional, though recommended.

Even if you’re offered a price, you should not be tempted by a questionable deal to clean your business, particularly if they offer a price over the phone. A reputable Toronto carpet cleaning company will not tell clients the costs until they see where they will be working. Clean-Slate takes this a step further by offering a free, no-obligation quote for our services.

If you’re looking for a trustworthy Toronto carpet cleaning company that can handle messes of any size, call on us; we use a wide variety of carpet cleaning methods to leave your carpets looking as clean as the day you had them installed. With spring approaching, your carpets have doubtlessly absorbed an entire winter’s worth of salt and dirty slush, making now the ideal time for a deep carpet cleaning!

We use a variety of methods to clean carpets, including steam extraction that sprays hot water into the carpet to break up any dirt, followed by the use of a special vacuum cleaner to extract that dirt. This is an excellent method if you’re looking to remove tough salt and dirt stains.

Remember: don’t trust cleaning the carpet in your home or office to just anyone. Don’t hesitate to do research and be on the lookout for offers that are too good to be true. You should always call on Toronto carpet cleaning companies with good reputations such as Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, your trusted Toronto carpet cleaning company.
