NOW LET'S ENVISION A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SCENARIO:
A PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANER ARRIVES AT YOUR HOME AT THE APPOINTED TIME, NEATLY DRESSED, IN A CLEAN TRUCK AND ARMED WITH A FULL ARSENAL OF PRODUCTS, EQUIPMENT AND EXPERIENCE THAT HE OR SHE WILL USE TO MAKE YOUR CARPETS LOOK THEIR VERY BEST:
♥ Professional equipment that has been specially engineered to do the very best job;
♥ Special cleaning tools not usually available to non-professional cleaners;
♥ Knowledge gained from years of experience;
♥ Classroom training in the chemistry of spots and soils, as well as the physics of cleaning;
♥ Reading trade journals and on-line research to keep abreast of the latest trends and available products;
♥ Specialized spot & stain removers -- each one created for a specific purpose;
♥ Powerful, professional cleaning agents (including higher or lower pH level products to use depending upon the carpet fiber, condition of the carpet, and cleaning method required);
♥ Much hotter water than the standard household water heater can generate to thoroughly and completely clean your carpets without soaking them (truck-mount equipment usually runs between 190° and 220°);
♥ The ability, knowledge and proper equipment to quickly & safely move most furniture;
♥ Foam blocks & plastic tabs to prevent stain & moisture transfer between furniture legs & carpet;
♥ Products & proper equipment for applying soil retardant (temporary, protective coating to replace the factory-applied protector that has worn off over time due to daily use and previous cleanings);
♥ Quality products, knowledge & confidence to support that soil retardant with a written guarantee!
♥ Powerful air movers to flash dry your carpet;
♥ Leave-behinds such as informational brochures and free bottles of neutral pH spotters;
♥ Expertise, knowledge and years of experience that allows the cleaning company to back up their work with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
♥ Expertise, knowledge and years of experience to accomplish the task much better -- and far faster -- than you will ever be able to do it yourself!
IF YOU HONESTLY CONSIDER WHAT IT COST YOU TO CLEAN THE CARPETS YOURSELF (including your time & labor, gas for driving back & forth to the store, machine rental, product purchase, potential risk of damage to your carpet, furniture or vehicle, etc.) COMPARED TO WHAT IT WOULD COST TO HAVE YOUR CLEANING DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL, YOU SHOULD CONCLUDE THAT IT'S CHEAPER -- AND EASIER -- TO HAVE YOUR CARPETS CLEANED RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!
