How To Avoid Carpet Cleaning Scams

They promise to clean all the carpets in your house for $10 per room. Sound too good to be true? It probably is.

What is bait and switch?

Bait and switch scams work like this: a company advertises cleaning a roomful of carpet for a ridiculously low price. When they arrive, they inform you the price they quoted is only for the traffic lanes and doesn’t include any cleaning chemicals.” That is like taking a bath with no soap, so you agree to pay extra for the chemicals because you are thankful someone showed up. In the end, the final bill ends up costing you hundreds of dollars.
