Satisfaction of customers
Posted by ALEXDH (ALEXDH), 30 November 2003You must be completely satisfied with our work or we'll keep cleaning until you are.
Old lady says i dont like it young man, do it again
Have any of you chaps fallen fowl of such advertising, i am a bit dubious to put such text in my adverts.
I Know certain training packages endorse such quotes but is it really sensible.
Your views gentleman
All the best

I think I can say without any fear of contradiction that whoever cleans a carpet, even if they do a simply fantastic job will still pull out more soil if they go over it again.
Cleaning carpets in situ is always going to be a compromise
I am not sure whether that answers your question though!
Posted by Ian_G. (Ian_G.), 30 November 2003It happened to me on a rental. I offered the guarantee when I should have declined business or not offered guarantee.
I did it again. Eventually you will be in a position to take work of your choice
AND interview YOUR CUSTOMERS.

I 'NEVER' give or offer a guarantee.
I tell my customer that I will do the best that I can but so much depends on the substrate, the length of time since it was last cleaned ...if ever... and as far as stains go...you never know what the customer has done to it already.
Usually everything else has already been attempted and 'YOU' are called in as a last resort and expected to perform miracles.
Posted by MICHAEL_GAYTON (MICHAEL_GAYTON), 30 November 2003I carry a guarantee that the customer will be delighted

Magic....no.... its not magic....I just move the carpet around so the stains are hidden under the furniture.
Better and safer than a stanley knife

The customer was South African pretended not to speak good english, went out while I cleaned carpets.
