Looking for a Carpet Cleaner in Durango? Ask these questions first…
Let’s face it… We’ve all been there… Looking at your stain filled carpet wondering, “I can hire someone to come out? Or should I just get a rental from City Market?” Although that may seem like a cost effective, do-it-yourself idea… Often times the results are mediocre at best, and end up costing near the same amount as if you hired a professional.
- DO THEY OFFER FREE ESTIMATES?
There is nothing worse than having some one charge you before they do any work! That’s like getting charged for your sample ‘Fro-Yo’ cups before you decide which flavor you want. Not very fair is it? If a Carpet cleaning service is able to put a little, ‘skin in the game’ as we call it and offer a Free Estimate, they are sure going to want your business and keep rates competitive.
- DO THEY DO MORE THAN JUST CLEAN CARPETS?
Whether buying a home, selling or just spring cleaning, it would be nice to get all the work you need done in one shot. Ask or see what services they offer: Black Bear Carpet Cleaning & Repair gets my vote; Carpet Cleaning, Tile and Grout Cleaning, Upholstery and Auto, Carpet Re-stretching or Carpet Patching, just to name a few. Not to mention Black Bears work is Guaranteed, that is who I call when I need some work.
- ARE YOU BONDED/ INSURED?
Be safe. Improper use of machinery or chemicals can ruin your flooring. This quick question will make sure you are covered in the unlikely scenario something does happen.
- HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE MY CARPET TO DRY?
Alright, this in inevitable and there isn’t much you can do about it. Generally speaking plan on a 24 hour window and you should be in the clear. Many cleaners offer booties to wear if you ask nicely.
- IS YOUR WORK GUARANTEED?
Not much is worse than coming home…expecting those vacuum lines on the carpet, and instead it looks like nobody was ever there. If a company cannot guarantee their work then, their work must not be good enough to guarantee? Right? if your carpet cleaners work is guaranteed, they are going to do everything they can to do it right the first time.
I know when recommending for my clients, buyers, sellers or just friends, Black Bear gets my my mark of approval. A family run business that started from the ground and worked their way up, they understand what it means to treat customers right. Though, no-matter who you use, keep in mind: Ask the right questions to get good results.
