Is Quality reflected in Price? 1
Is Quality reflected in Price?

At what level, would you say is fair price?

That’s a hard question to answer by itself, because I have given you no additional data to make that decision. But in our Global Society, everything has a price. And we see how the same category of product or service can have or display a multitude of prices that cross a vast range of brands, manufacturers, retailers and service providers. With a Service Provider, the finished result, quality of work or outcome is the place of difference between each of the Service Providers.

Take the Mobile phone industry for example, this is a highly concentrated marketplace with many brands and manufacturers and service providers all competing for your dollars. In this industry, we can quickly narrow down which plans, handsets are the best options for us. And in most cases, the retailers have some margin to move, so you can haggle the price down somewhat to get the best deal for you.

But does this work for all Industries?

In some cases yes it does. But … How do you test that theory for say Plumbers, Builders or even the humble Cleaner?

You can’t really, it’s pretty much down to trial and error on your part. However, I would argue that you can make a decision based on past experiences. So what do I mean by this? Well we have all been in that situation where we were looking for a particular product or service and we based our entire decision on price alone without giving any thought to any other variable – like quality, workmanship, attention to detail and the like.

I know I have personally been in this situation many times, and unfortunately had to learn the lesson of only looking at price many times with the product or service being of lower quality or not performing at all. If only I spent a few more extra dollars, I would of avoided all the emotion of anger and frustration.

Price Is Not The Bee’s Knees

Of course as a business we totally understand that customers will look for the most competitive and best price, but what we don’t understand as a Cleaning Company is why people put so very little value on their homes. Obviously they are looking for services because they either don’t hold the knowledge to do what they need doing, or they don’t really want to do the task that they want completed, either way they are looking for a Business to service there enquiry.

Your quality is much higher and for what you guys charge you are the cheaper option

We recently have had a few Clients come back to us after first telling us that we were way too expensive and now we find that most who have said those words are calling us up to see if we have spots available to clean their homes. On asking them why they decided to give us a call back, most respond with – “your quality is much higher and for what you guys charge you are the cheaper option.”

Interesting huh! Just proves that it doesn’t always come down to price alone. Sometimes to get a better result or in our eyes a “A Redgum Standard” result, you have to pay that little extra ….. to receive the extra’s.

Redgum as a Cleaning Company prides ourselves on the results we deliver. If you doubt this, please take a moment to look through some before & after blog posts.

The Handy Carpet Cleaner 2
The Handy Carpet Cleaner

Good evening, we hope you are doing well and we thank you for stopping by our website to check us out.

This is only a short post to share with you all some awesome information on a great carpet cleaner we have just tested. However, stupid me (Mike) forgot to take before and after pictures. Oh well, these things happen when your excited about a new product.

So the Testing begins…

Like with all things we do – we do all our testing in our own home first to make sure things go accordingly and if failures are going to happen it will happen in our home first. We have had a few spots that have developed over time, we also had some very old stains that were from spilling coffee.

Now, we have a light shade of cream as our carpet, so all and every mark can easily be seen and we aren’t a house that takes our shoes off before entering (maybe that should change).

Anyway, we received a carpet cleaning solution, only a sample from our Suppliers & friends at SpotGo, to try and test out to see what we thought. Well, time got away from us and we hadn’t tested it out until today. And really, I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a go, it worked a treat on all those coffee stains, black grimy spot stains which I’m sure was a result of me walking inside with dirty boots, but we will keep that between you and me ok – shhhhh.

Using SpotGo’s Products Really Works!

The Handy Carpet Cleaner 3

I will admit I was sceptical about the performance of this product, but it is always very nice to be proven wrong about your initial thoughts. You couldn’t use this to clean a very large area, however, to attack those stains that just happen or have been there for awhile, it’s definately worth the $3.90 they charge in Woolworths.

All I found I had to do was spray a small amount on the stain itself, wait for a few minutes and using a damp chux cloth, massaged the stain in a circular motion. After a few seconds I changed cloths to a terry towel type of cloth, then dried the area that I just cleaned – making sure I removed as much cleaning solution as possible.

This left a result I was very surprised by, no blemish to the carpet like other stain removers I have used in the past. Very pleasant scent, and non-oily. So all up, I can fully recommend the SpotGo Carpet cleaning solution as being superior in performance.
