Transparency and trust in carpet cleaning
It happens again and again that fraudsters mislead good faith citizens by cleaning carpets and shamelessly rip them off. Older people in particular often fall into the trap when suddenly someone rings their doorbell and uses nasty tricks to pull the money out of their pockets. Such fraudulent carpet washers usually proceed in such a way that they ensnare their victims with flattery and alleged low prices in order to then threaten horrific costs, endless delivery times and sometimes even damaged carpets.
Here you can find out what you should look out for in carpet cleaning companies and how we at My Fair Cleaning create trust in our customers with absolute transparency.
How do you recognize fraudsters in the carpet cleaning business?
Whether on flyers or when visiting home, if you take good care, you can recognize fraudsters by the following features, among others:
- Advertising slips or newspaper inserts with specious special offers
- Excessive flattery on house calls
- No or incorrect business address or tax number on order papers
- Demand for cash payment
How can you protect yourself?
Before you get to the point where you hand over your carpets to such scam companies, you should pay attention to the steps outlined below:
- Ask neighbors, friends, and relatives if you know the company
- If necessary, pass the address and check the location
- Get a quote and compare prices with other companies
- Always set a price in advance and don’t get involved in prepayment
- Ask for a copy of the contract
- A 14-day right of withdrawal also applies to door-to-door sales
- If in doubt, contact the police
