Buy cheap, Buy twice

This couldn’t be more true than when it comes to choosing a carpet cleaner. Low priced carpets cleaning companies are usually cutting costs somewhere. Such cuts may be – inadequate staff training, using discounted cleaning products which could damage your carpets, or intending on adding additional costs once they’ve got their foot in the door. Although value for money is important, make sure it just that, and not something you’ll regret in the long run.
