Carpet Cleaning For Just $8.95 A Room In Cape Coral?

Meet “Bubba.” Bait & Switch artists are rampant throughout SW Florida.

How can a carpet cleaning company offer cleaning for just $8.95 a room?

They don’t!  It’s called B.S. (Bait & Switch) advertising! The BBB says, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” Anyone in the carpet cleaning business knows that a carpet cleaning company can’t go anywhere and clean a room full of carpet at $8.95, especially with the cost of gas nowadays. Sadly, many consumers are duped into believing this “BS” and many end up spending hundreds of dollars by the time these smooth operators finish up-selling the “$8.95” package.

We’ve all seen the “too-good-to-be-true” coupons screaming “$8.95 a room” or “$69.00 for an entire house of carpet cleaning.” And as ridicules as this pricing sounds, many consumers are scammed out of their hard-earned money. Here’s how the trick works:

Most of these companies place in small print somewhere in their ad that the $8.95 per room price is for their “Basic Steam” package. Basic Steam cleaning is the “hook” that catches most people and leaves wiggle room for these carpet cleaning company’s.

You see, “basic steam” does not clean carpets; it simply “steams them. If you want your carpets “cleaned” that will cost you extra. These companies charge extra for cleaning solutions, vacuuming, pre-scrubbing, pre-spotting, moving even the most basic of furniture and fan assisted drying. Tru-Clean Surface Care includes these services in our carpet cleaning packages at no additional charge.

With the help of the Better Business Bureau, the Carpet & Rug Institute, IICRC, and many national news outlets and State Attorney Generals, these BS’ers have been exposed on television in Florida, New York, California, Ohio, and Indiana. Hidden cameras, interviews with victims, lawsuits and notarized statements from ex-employees of these unscrupulous company’s are all well documented in the numerous State actions filed to shut these rip-off artists down.

Occasionally we are asked, “what makes Tru-Clean Surface Care so different from the company offering the $8.95 deal.” After all, aren’t all carpet cleaning companies basically the same?

The answer is NO!

The bottom line – what makes Tru-Clean Surface Care so unique – is the quality of the whole experience, from the moment we meet until we say “goodbye and thank you.” We care just as much about your experience as you do. We want so much more than simply happy customers; we want cheerleaders.
