“Bait and Switch” Carpet Cleaning Companies
ACME Clean Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, Brighton, CO
At ACME Clean, we care about you and your carpets. That’s why we want to shed light on an unfortunately common practice. With the Bait and Switch scams, these companies advertise a low price, but when they get to your home or business, you find out you’re going to be spending a whole lot more money.
Bait and Switch is a sales tactic used by many cleaning companies. It’s a practice where a company promises a product or service for an inexpensive price, then adds several up-charges or changes the prices altogether. Typically, the switch happens after they’ve arrived at your location for the appointment so that it’s easier to pressure you into paying.
If you watch the video below, you’ll discover that many carpet cleaning companies do things that are just downright unscrupulous when it comes to conducting business. Like quoting you a price that doesn’t include the cost of soap!
