A word of warning. Using the cheapest carpet cleaning company you can find, can have costly or deversating consequences! Especially those companies who offer to provide a quote without viewing the carpets to be cleaned first. No carpet cleaning professional or business should ever quote for your: carpet, upholstery, rug or other cleaning requirements, without first inspecting your textiles and furnishing. Many carpet cleaning companies may choose to offer you a ball-park figure over the phone, subject to inspection. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but it is important that the work is inspected, and a written quotation is provided prior to any carpet cleaning work. Part of the British standards of carpet cleaning requires that a professional inspects the carpets prior to cleaning to identify the type of carpet they are cleaning, its construction, and its condition.
Using a company which guarantees their work can be difficult. No professional carpet cleaning company should guarantee 100% success of stain removal. The truth of the matter is, no how good a carpet cleaning technician is, some spots and spills in carpets will be permanent. In these circumstances, replacement, or colour correction treatments may be required. At Hook Cleaning Services we aim to remove all spots and spills from carpets. In the event you find a spot or spill which hasn’t successfully been removed, let us know within 7 days of your deep clean; and we will return to your home or business free of charge, to attempt the spot removal again. We recommend that you avoid claims of 100% satisfaction or you don’t pay. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is…
