Buyer Beware - Local Carpet Cleaner:

Recently while researching carpet cleaning on the web I came across this question by a local Elk Grove carpet cleaner. His question appeared on a carpet cleaners informational website. What you are about to read is his own words, "It's going to sound like I'm full of @#%@@. How do I hack my way through a job (carpet cleaning) by not vacuuming and make it look ok enough? Dead serious, like many carpet cleaners do. No vacuuming, little or no pre-spray or just in the traffic lanes?... How do you hack through stairs?"

A "hack" is someone who is less than desirable in the cleaning industry. They are also called 'splash and dashers." They splash on some water and run the moment they get paid. There is no such thing as quality, service or guarantees.  A hack will often use 'bait & switch' tactics once they are in the door. They advertise three rooms and hallway for only $49.00 and when they get there the fee is almost $300.00. A hack is a low-life who has no regard for the client and only wants to line his pockets with as much money as possible.

The one point I will agree with him on is that many carpet cleaners will NOT pre-vacuum the carpets before cleaning. According to my own research I would estimate that 96% of the carpet cleaners out they will not pre-vacuum the carpets before cleaning. Yet science teaches us that pre-vacuuming the carpet with a quality HEPA filtration system will remove up to 80% of dry particulates found in the carpets. These particulates include dust mite feces, dust mites, pet dander, dead skin cells, hair, etc. Can you say YUK!

Here at Liberty Floor Solutions we have no intentions of learning how to become a "hack." If you questions about this article you can reach me at

Until Next Time,
