Services & Pricing

Carpet Medic Cleaning Company specializes in both Residential and Commercial environment cleaning scenarios. As there may be similarities, there are definate differences. Everything from solution & vacuum hose distances, flooring types, traffic, scheduled cleaning times available, building stories, cleaning solution mixtures, crew count needs, and so on.

Pricing is going to vary greatly. We will do our best to give you a close estimate, but PLEASE keep in mind that we cannot give a 100% accurate QUOTE until we inspect the areas to be cleaned.

Square Foot Pricing

Carpet Medic Cleaning Company generally uses a "Per Square Foot of Cleanable Flooring" method of pricing your jobs. PLEASE do not take a whole-house measurement and try to determine pricing without us present to help ensure a more accurate quote.

Measuring Example (on the right)

A bedroom that measures 11 feet by 11 feet (131 square feet) that has a bed, dresser, and night stands may only have about 60 square feet of cleanable floor area. A company with high-pressure up-sells (high-traffic lane treatments and special scrubbing, etc.) may get you for about $40 for this room alone. With Carpet Medic and our "per square foot pricing" our price will be about half of that. With our per-square-foot-pricing, most everything would be included to make sure we get your floor clean.

Heavy Soils

This one is a little difficult to explain. Carpet Medic Cleaning Company INCLUDES treatments for MOST heavy soils, traffic lanes, and so on. For many companies, they refer to a traffic lane as "heavily soiled" so they can add extra charges for using more chemicals.

What we would consider "heavily soiled", for example, is an area where drywallers have come thru and left a bunch of drywall dust. When hit with water this would clog our equipment, so we would have to perform more processes to pre-clean an area before we come back in for the deep cleaning.

So normal, everyday use is good. Our process thrives better with dirty floors (it makes the clean show that much better). But rest assured, most "dirty" and/or "heavily soiled" areas are included. It's easier that way for all of us!

Watch Out!

  • "Cleaning Carpet Can Be a Dirty Business"
  • "Not All Scum Is In the Carpet"
  • "Don't Let them Pull The Rug Out From Under You"
  • "Clean Your Carpets Without Cleaning Out Your Wallet"
  • "Don't Get Taken To The Cleaners"

These clever phrases have appeared recently in newspaper articles and televised news programs across the nation warning consumers about cleaning scam operations. The media has related horror stories of trusting consumers who have responded to low-price cleaning specials only to become victims of unethical cleaners who refuse to honor the advertised price, intimidate the consumers and do poor quality work.

Bait & Switch operators are prevalent in many industries, and the [carpet] cleaning industry is no exception. This does not mean that all cleaners are rip-off artists. How do you know who is and who is not? The professional cleaning industry has cited these scam activities as a major industry concern and is taking action to help eliminate unprofessional workmanship and unethical tactics. One of the leaders in this campaign is the IICRC (Institue of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification), an international, non-profit organization that certifies cleaners who meet prescribed levels of technical proficiency and pledge to operate by a Code of Ethics.

Here is a list of some common guidelines to consider when selecting a cleaner:

Price - If an advertised price sounds too good to be true - it is! Often [carpet] cleaners advertise a low price just to get their foot in the door. Use common sense; a low price usually equates to low quality for any product or service. Legitimate business people have expenses they must cover, including license, taxes, insurance, employee wages, and benefits, and quality tools of the trade. A professional cleaner who must cover all of these business expenses and make a profit to stay in the business cannot afford to drive to your house for $5.95, much less clean a room of carpet when there.

Quality - Never should the price of cleaning services be the sole criterion for selecting a cleaner. A price that sounds high may not be a signal of a rip-off. In all professions, quality work deserves a quality price.

Truth in Advertising - Read the fine print in advertised specials to find out exactly what the price includes, and request a firm price in writing before the work begins.

Training - Professional cleaning firms require management and employees to engage in formal training in a variety of cleaning disciplines, and these educational efforts will be ongoing. Consumers should ask about the formal training background of technicians who will be cleaning their carpet.

Experience - The years of experience a firm has, combined with formal training programs, contribute significantly to the experience and proficiency of its employees.

Knowledgeable - Professional firms employ and train technicians who have the ability to answer basic questions regarding carpet performance and maintenance, as well as spotting and cleaning.

Method - Ask the cleaner which method of cleaning will be used and the advantages and disadvantages of this method compared to other methods.

No Pressure - Technicians must be courteous and willing to take the time to thoroughly explain the cleaning and to answer all questions. The consumer should never feel pressured.

There is no single criterion for selecting a carpet cleaning service. Several combined factors must be considered in the selection decision.

We here at Carpet Medic Cleaning Company are here to assist you in any way we can.
