Reasons why you might want to give Group Buy Sites like Groupon/Dealfind/WagJag a pass when it comes to purchasing carpet cleaning vouchers.

by Mr. Steamer on 06/13/13

In recent years, group-buy site have become very popular with carpet cleaning companies as a way to get valid leads to qualified customers.  Each day amazing deals are produced, for example 5 rooms of carpet cleaning for just $29.  You can’t even rent a machine and do it yourself for that kind of money, yet no one is suspicious of such deals.  The question you have to ask yourself is:  Can any company effectively clean your thousands of dollars’ worth in carpet for $29 dollars?  We all know the answer is an emphatic No!  

It gets worse, did you know that the group-buy site takes up to  50% of each voucher purchased leaving the company with only 50% in this example only $14.50 to clean your carpet.  What professional service can you find that incur fuel  cost  - not to mention any labor or other cost -  to come to your home only to make $14.50?  NONE.  So how do they do it?

These group-buy companies sell hundreds of vouchers over a 5 or so day period.  How do the cleaning company profit or at least break even?  One word upsell, the next area that you purchase will cost you $59.95 or stairs at $5.00 per step.  These group buy sites have just justified the best bait and switch tactic ever.  If you don’t take any add-on sales, some companies most likely will just do a crappy splash and dash job in and out in 15 minutes.  They will leave your carpets over wet and at risk of mold and mildew damage; a cheap voucher may become very costly to you in the end.

At Mr. Steamer we have created our own voucher carpet cleaning deals on our webpage.  Deals that are more costly than what you would find on a group buy site, because they are realistic so that the customer get the true service they deserve at a value price.  Servicing most of the GTA with our powerful truck mounted units, our courteous reception staff and our excellent cleaning technicians.

When choosing a carpet cleaner it should be based on experience not price.

by Mr. Steamer on 02/03/13

In an industry where not all service is created equal, price should never be your ultimate deciding factor when hiring a carpet cleaning company to do your job.  It’s best to choose an experienced carpet cleaner with years of training and expertise.  Focusing on getting the lowest price most times end with a less than adequate job,  damage to your property, and you feeling totally dissatisfied.

You as the consumer should focus on the worthiness of the cleaning company rather than the cost.  This will give you the best results for your hard earned money.   In today’s economic climate, getting your monies worth is essential and for many years, our clients at Mr. Steamer have been receiving the highest level of carpet cleaning support that the industry provides. 

We operate Powerful Truck Mounted Steam extraction unit, we don’t show up to your door with a grocery store rental machine or an off the shelf Bissell.   Our technicians are courteous and professional with many years of experience and know how to handle any stain that gets thrown at them.  Our cleaning solutions are bought from a reputable supplier, not from the corner store.  We also have a wonderful customer service team that is always ready to answer your calls.

When looking for a carpet cleaner look for experience, so that your experience will be a good one. 

Reasons why you should clean your new carpet before it starts to get dirty.

by Mr. Steamer on 01/25/13

We have all heard it and as a carpet cleaner, I hear it a few times a week, many customers have been told ”Don’t clean your new carpet for as long as possible, once you do it will get dirty faster” they say.

 

This is an old wives tale, back in the dark ages carpets were shampooed there was no steam rinsing of the carpet fibres.  The shampoo would suspend the dirt particles and dry to a residue, which would be vaccuumed away.   The trouble was that you could never vacuum up that entire sticky residue left behind by the soap.  The soapy residue would cause rapid resoling, and the carpet would become dirty soon after cleaning.  So there was some truth to the myth.

 

Then the technology of steam cleaning your carpets came along, where the service technician applies the cleaning solution or soap to your carpets first.  It is then rinsed with fresh clean hot water which is pressurized to produce steam.  When combined with a high power vacuum the carpet fibres could thoroughly get rinsed with the steam and the excess moisture removed by the vacuum.  This would leave the carpet clean and residue free, rapid re-soiling should never be a problem.

 

Maintain your carpets by cleaning them every six months to 1 year this will extend the life of your carpet.  It will help to remove dirt particles and grease that damage the fibres and discolour your carpets.  Don’t wait too long to have your carpet and furniture cleaning done.  We have many deals on carpet cleaning; steam carpet cleaning in Brampton is where we started.
