Its not about the price when cleaning carpets, consider how much money it is going to cost if you bring someone into your home that is not licensed and insured. If they ruin your carpet you are going to be stuck paying for it. Typically speaking, carpet cleaners that are boned, lic and insured are going to be a little more expensive. (we are talking maybe 30 bucks) Please, spend the extra money and get it done the right way the first time. Pay the little extas money and make sure it is done right.
