2) Are you able to provide a customer reference?

These companies want prospective customers to know their reputation within the industry and the courteous service they provide. Most companies will be more than happy to provide you with a URL to their most recent carpet cleaning customer testimonials. Be wary of a company that cannot or refuses to provide customer references.
3) Do you use green carpet cleaning products?

4) Do you have general liability insurance in place?
General liability insurance covers carpet cleaning technicians should they injure themselves while on the job at your property and provides that extra peace of mind that comes with knowing you won’t be held responsible for costs resulting from an on-the-job injury. A reputable Vancouver carpet cleaning company will have general liability insurance in place.
5) Can you provide an over-the-phone estimate?
If a company is experienced and has done a wide variety of wall-to-wall and area rug cleaning, they should be able to give a fairly accurate estimate for most carpet cleaning services over the phone. If the estimate seems too good to be true, it probably is. The low estimate could be a ploy to entice you to hire the company. Once the technician is on-site, he may increase the price considerably with the excuse that the job involves more than was understood over the phone.
