What Should You Pay to have the carpets cleaned in your home or business?
Carpet experts advise homeowners to clean their carpets at least once a year, and depending on traffic and other sources like messy kids or pets sometimes more often.
It is also important to note that if you recently bought new carpet with a warranty, you need to read the fine print to see how often you are required to clean your carpets and keep the receipts.
What is the cost of carpet cleaning in the Bakersfield CA area?
If you live in the Bakersfield area you probably receive numerous coupons in your mailbox every day with cheap carpet cleaning offers.
Unfortunately, these low ball offers are too good to be true and you either end up with a really bad cleaning job with cheap cleaning chemicals or the price goes way up once the company rep arrives at your house.
Professional carpet cleaning costs vary depending on the size of the areas that need cleaning, the cleaning method used by the service, your carpet type, and whether stain removal is required.
Most professional carpet cleaning companies charge by the room with a flat rate. In the case of extremely large rooms there may be an extra charge for room size. A professional company will inform you of any overages in the original price quote before they even unload the equipment.
If you are receiving a quote by phone, pay attention to the questions asked by the rep because it will affect the price. A good company will ask about room size and stains before giving you a price quote. If you mislead the rep on the phone and they arrive to find things wrong you didn’t mention, it will affect the price.
Any carpet cleaning service that quotes prices without asking questions is just low balling you to get the job. Do not be surprised when the final bill is much higher than the original quote.
Factors that affect the cost of carpet cleaning.
- Berber: easiest to clean
- Cut and level loop: somewhat difficult to clean.
- Cotton and wool: most difficult.
Carpet Stain Removal Cost
If your carpet has stains, getting them professionally removed during carpet cleaning will increase the price you pay. The additional cost to remove them will depend on the type and size of the stain.
Pet stains usually cost more to remove because they sink deep into the carpet and take longer to extract from your carpet. On the other hand,, lighter stains, that come from food spills, typically take less time to remove and cost you less.
Ask about carpet cleaning discounts
Some carpet cleaning services will offer discounts for multiple rooms, added upholstery cleaning, or long term service contracts. It does not hurt to ask. Keep in mind, a carpet cleaning company that uses the best cleaning techniques and chemicals, combined with top service and guaranteed satisfaction do not need to offer discounts for good reason.
