Carpet Cleaning Add-Ons: Are They Worth the Cost?

Tagged with: · ·

When you schedule a professional carpet cleaning service, it is common for the technician to offer extra services on top of the standard cleaning. Some homeowners feel like the company is trying to increase the amount of money that is spent by tacking a bunch of upsells on the bill.

The truth is that there are benefits available from the standard service, and there’s no obligation for you to pay for the additional services. But sometimes it’s worth the cost to pay for a few extras.

What Add-Ons are Needed for Your Carpet Cleaning?

The best thing that you can do is research the industry so that you understand your options for carpet cleaning. Complete the research before the carpet cleaner comes to your home. Then, you won’t feel like you need to decide on necessary services on-the-spot.

Sometimes it makes sense to invest in certain upgraded services to improve the appearance of your carpet and protect it for future durability. These are a few common add-ons that might be considered for your home:

  • Stain Treatment: If stains are lingering on the carpet, then a standard carpet cleaning service isn’t enough to eliminate the discoloration. The treatment varies depending on the type of stain. For example, different products are used for grease stains vs. dye-based stains.
  • Odor or Urine Cleaning: When young children or pets are in the house, it’s likely that there are accidents on the carpet. Not only does this add-on help to remove the stain from the carpet, but it is also helpful to use an enzyme that breaks down the proteins that cause the smell.
  • Upholstery Services: Why not have your couch or armchairs cleaned along with your floors? Professional upholstery cleaning is a great way to revive your furniture. These services can help with odor, stains, and pet hair.
  • Grout Cleaning: Did you know that many carpet cleaning providers also offer services for the tile flooring? Take care of the dirty grout at the same time the carpets are being cleaned.
