Welcome! My name is Jose Esmerio, and first off, I want to thank you for visiting our website. I am excited for the opportunity to provide you with information about carpet cleaning and help you choose a carpet cleaning company if you are located in the Inland Empire of California.
Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am the owner, CEO, and founder of Esmerio's Master Carpet Care, and I have been in this business for over two and a half decades. And in that time, I have learned that carpet cleaning is the subject of much confusion. In fact, people have so many misconceptions about carpet cleaning that I decided to offer this online consumer awareness report so when you select a carpet cleaning company, you can make an informed intelligent decision.
In just a moment, I will share with you just a few of the costly mistakes that people make every day when choosing a carpet cleaner.
So, let's start off with...
Mistake #1 - You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.
No. The longer you wait, the more likely it will be for your carpet to end up like this.
Soil is an abrasive - like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet, you grind soil into your carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet, just as if you had a knife, causing it to wear out faster. A soiled carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps, it is simply not enough on its own. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more damaging you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.
Mistake #2 - The only reason to clean carpets is to get out the soil.
No. As you probably know, outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust - and hundreds of other chemicals. When you and your family members come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria, and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing, and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals, pollens and bacteria wind up - you guessed it - in your carpet.
If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems, one major source could be the pollens, fungus, and chemicals in your carpet. If you are sensitive to dust mites (who can lay 60-80 eggs a day!) and their feces, you might find that you will breath easier after you hire a professional company to get those nasty creatures out of your carpet.
Mistake #3 - Having the right equipment is all a company needs to clean your carpets properly.
Not true. Many companies own hot-water cleaners, but a large amount of employees do not know how to use them. You probably know someone who bought the newest computer on the market, but didn't learn how to use it for a year or more. The same is true with carpet cleaning machines. The company may own good equipment, but the employees may not know how to use it correctly. This is why it is important that you choose your carpet cleaner carefully
Mistake #4 - The company that offers the lowest price is the company you should hire.
Maybe... but not always. Here are two important points to consider.
Point #1 - The price you see offered may not be for the services you want performed. Before you select a company, decide what you want to accomplish. If you want the carpet cleaner to remove only some of the soil, you can choose from hundreds of companies that use small shampooers or other cleaning methods.
On the other hand, if you want your carpets thoroughly cleaned, and to be removed of the harmful soil, bacteria, pollens, chemicals and tobacco residues, then you need to hire a company that uses a state-of-the-art truck mounted machine. This is the only way to assure that your carpet remains healthy and free from dirt, disease-causing bacteria, and hurtful chemicals.
So remember that the price you see offered may not be for the services you want performed.
Point #2 - The price you see advertised may not be the price you pay.
Many homeowners have learned that the low price they saw advertised was not the amount they were charged.
And if you have ever hired a carpet cleaner like that in the past, you too may have been the victim of false or misleading advertising. You probably learned the hard way that some carpet cleaners offer a cheap price, and then pressure you into paying a lot more once they get inside your home.
As in all businesses and professions, the carpet cleaning industry has its share of bad apples. I take no pleasure in telling you this, but some are unethical, and, sadly, a few are dishonest. By their misleading advertising and false promises, they cast a dark shadow on our entire industry.
Then you will find other carpet cleaners - professionals like me who work hard to earn your trust and respect.
Mistake #5 - Any honest carpet cleaning company should be able to give you an exact price quote over the telephone.
I wish this were true, but it isn't.
Honest and reputable carpet cleaning companies usually price carpet cleaning by the square footage. So if you would like me to tell you the exact cost of cleaning your carpet, I need to know the exact number of square feet that you want cleaned. To get an accurate measurement, I have a laser measuring device I use to calculate the exact size of the carpet area.
This is what I do, instead of giving you a low ball rough guess on the cost of cleaning your carpets over the phone just so I can get my foot in the door like so many other companies do.
In conclusion, I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read this, but since you are here, feel free to check out more of what I have on my website!
