Akron Carpet Cleaners Educate Consumers on Bait and Switch

Professional Carpet Systems in Akron Ohio launch campaign to educate consumers on the dangers of bait and switch carpet cleaning.

(Newswire.net -- October 1, 2013) Shreve, OH --  Professional Carpet Systems in Akron Ohio launch campaign to educate consumers on the dangers of bait and switch carpet cleaning.

As the holiday season approaches, more consumers hire a carpet cleaner than any other seasons.  During this time, unethical bait and switch carpet cleaning companies ramp up their advertising.  You'll see prices as low as $4.95 per room advertised for carpet cleaning.

But can professional carpet cleaning really be done for that low?  Most experts in the filed say no.  In fact, the too-good-to-be-true low price only attracts the prospect thinking he will get a great deal.  But when the real price is given, it's a whole different story.

John Braun, consultant to the carpet cleaning industry, said, "A professional cleaning company can't deliver a good carpet cleaning for $5 per room or $69 for a whole house.  In most cases, companies that advertise that of a price will switch the price once in the home.  And the companies that actually charge that low of a price normally have to cut margins so low that they don't have the resources to deliver a quality carpet cleaning."

Some of the ways these companies cut costs is to water down cleaning chemicals.  Often, employee salaries are very low, which pushes them to get more jobs done leaving little time to do quality work.  Many times, training for these type of companies is not done at all or very limited.

Tom Cooper, owner of Professional Carpet Systems in Akron, states, "It's sad that people fall for this type of thing.  We want to educate consumers in the Akron, Millersburg and surrounding areas by doing this campaign."
