Either on TV, online or on the radio, it's hard to miss those deals for low, low prices on carpet cleaning. But how many of them are too low to be true? Angie's List has the dirt on how to get your carpets professionally cleaned without putting a huge stain on your budget.
To avoid added extras, consumer experts recommend homeowners insist on a written, detailed estimate on what the company will do for the advertised price. And never be shy about sharing your own family's details.
As always, it's important to do your homework on the company you're thinking about hiring. Check out online review sites to see what others have to say about their experience and make sure the company has a guarantee. A good company will return to clean spots that reappear within a short period of time.
