Rori represents many insurance carriers in our marketplace to fulfill her clients’ benefit and related insurance needs. Contact Rori to discuss any of these issues or to get a no-obligation-quote.

    A GOOD tip: Individuals/Small Businesses that are looking for help and experience with risk management issues. Rori will assist in the planning, review, and servicing of new and/or existing insurance policies. Group and Individual Insurance should be reviewed every 2-3 years, but going through specific life changes are always a good reason to re-evaluate insurance needs and lines of coverage. Some of these reasons include: changing jobs/companies, retiring, getting married or divorced, starting a business, buying a house, taking on a new debt or mortgage, recent injury or illness, change (positive or negative) in medical condition. It can also be advantageous to undergo a policy review to determine whether or not existing coverage is priced competitively and structured properly.

    Not all carpet cleaning companies are the same! The skill, quality of work, level of service, time and care spent on the job and price vary significantly from one company to another. One of the most important differentiating factors is who is the actual cleaning technician.

    Since residential carpet cleaning is performed in your home it is a very personal service. In the same way we choose other personal services such as doctors, tax advisors, hairdressers, decorators, etc. it is important to choose not only the service, but the individual performing it. Let’s look at why it is important to look for a carpet cleaning company where the owner is the primary cleaning technician.

    “Good help is so hard to find.” This is never more true than in the carpet cleaning industry. Quality, motivated and skilled carpet cleaning employees are extremely rare. There is no one who will care more about satisfying and developing a long term relationship with you more than the owner himself. A successful owner takes pride in the work he does.

    Having an owner/technician company can give you peace of mind. There will be consistency in the quality and service each time you call the company. You know who will be coming out each time. No surprises!

    You should develop a relationship with the owner. He can become a very trusted advisor, helping you get the most from your carpet and upholstered furnishings. The owner will learn the needs of your household and can customize his services to best service you.

    Since the owner is in this business for the long term, he is the most knowledgeable and trained person in the company. He has years of experience to back him up, compared to an employee that could still be in the training phase.

    Unfortunately we can not always assume that all people are honest and ethical. Knowing who you’re inviting into your home is very important. Getting referrals from friends, and establishing a relationship with the owner/technician can go a long way to giving you peace of mind.

    When your friends are looking for a carpet cleaning service, it is easier to refer a cleaning company when you know that the same person who has worked for you will be working for your friend.

    There are some services that can be mass produced. But when it comes to having peace of mind in your home it pays to look for the best company where you can count on the owner being the person to service you every time.
