Buyer Beware: When you treat cost and price as your top priority, you may very well be pursuing risks, slow, and inadequate cleaning results. If you want it cheap and fast - it cannot be good.
Through out the week, we get numerous calls from potential clients that are shopping around for cleaning services, primarily for house cleaning & carpet cleaning and they are always looking to pay bottom dollar. Don't get me wrong, I love a good deal as much as the next person but there are certain services where the cheapest price is not always the best deal and I am going to tell you the top 4 reasons why :)
1. They are not bonded and insured which means that if something where to happen to them while on your property or if an item is broken or stolen; you are left to take care of the damages. Since there are no background checks, the safety of your home and loved ones could be at risk.
2. The company is more then likely using illegal immigrants and paying them below minimum wage or under the table, thus exploiting them as human beings for their own personal gain and proving to be an unethical company while breaking numerous laws.
3. Low price usually means the service has cheap equipment, cheap cleaning products and untrained personnel who provide less than professional service. Extremely low prices can often mean that corners are being cut in order to still make a profit. Are they using a color coded system when cleaning your home to ensure there is no cross contamination? Are their cleaning products safe?
4. Bait & Switch - These unethical cleaning companies offer a very low price - usually between $3.95 and $9.95 per room for carpet cleaning. Once they're in your home or office, they pressure you into buying extra services. You can see this a lot on craigslist when you sear for carpet cleaners.
Most well established cleaning companies will charge between $20.00 - $25.00 an hour because they have invested heavily in training, equipment, high end cleaning products, certifications and licensing in order to provide you with the highest quality service. There are other overhead expenses as well that will not allow us to give you the minimum wage price as our Craig list competitors do.
You also have to take into consideration that your are paying for the persons skill, knowledge and the convenience of having a professional come into to your home or office, thus saving you time, energy, stress and money on cleaning supplies.
Our goal is to build a long lasting relationship with you as our customer, not on price but on quality you can count and depend on. That is why we stand behind our 100% Satisfaction with our No Fee Guarantee or its Free. Remember “The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
