Quality carpet cleaning at a realistic price / avoiding scams

We won’t clean your carpets for 15 pounds! No one will! If you see a leaflet claiming to do so? Recycle it!

We would rather visit and quote for job as each room and carpet are different. We will quote competetively with no cutting corners as this just devalues what the client and OCD Cleaning are trying to achieve. We do it with consideration for the user rather than the quick get out.

How to avoid scams

Scam 1: Fake Quote
To some degree, all of us are attracted by low price because we want to work within a budget. But some carpet cleaners use price as the bait for their false and misleading advertising. They offer a cheap price and then add more on or do a derisory job to validate them coming.
Once they are in your home, they pressurise you into buying ‘add-ons.’ Carpet cleaning is not as cheap as some unethical carpet cleaners would like you to believe. We have pictures of our cleaned carpets in Harrogate and York on our gallery page.

Scam 2: Chemical Drought.
Dual process carpet cleaning describes the process of shampooing or heavy preconditioning, followed with hot water extraction cleaning. Unfortunately, unethical carpet cleaners often use dual process as a bait-and-switch technique. Here’s how it’s done: First, they ‘bait’ you with a basic cleaning (single process) at an unbelievably low price. Then, when you call, they try to ‘switch’ you to more expensive dual-process cleaning. If you don’t fall for their switch and choose their basic service, you’re likely receive poor workmanship using little or no chemical and they will not guarantee their work. Our Enzyme cleaners use naturally occurring proteins to break down dirt and grime before the second phase deodors and shampoo are applied.

Scam 3: Unsupported claims ie ‘Best service.’

You’ll read this in almost every ad. You’ll hear this from virtually every carpet cleaner. Remember this: The method that’s best for you is the method that achieves your goal. If you want a method that dries quickly, then a method that takes a long time to dry is not for you. So before you choose a carpet cleaner, identify your objectives. Then select the method that best reaches those objectives.
