Hmm…we didn’t when we got our carpets cleaned. I didn’t know you were supposed to?

your already paying him to clean you carpet, I wouldn’t.  But I’m pretty uptight with money.  Just tip those who don’t make minimum wage.

If you LOVE the way he did it, go ahead and give him a few extra $.  I don’t think it’s necessary but I can’t imagine it’d be unwelcome either 😉

If he was nice and pleasant and helpful, i would give him 5 or 10 bucks. If he was just ” i am here…. lucky me…” no.

So what did you decide?

I’ve only ever rented a carpet cleaning machine and DIY’d that mutha.

I wouldn’t have tipped either, esp if he arrived at the end of the time slot. If he had offered to do an extra room at no charge I might have thrown him a small tip, but other than that I definitely would not have.

We own a carpet shampooer, so I haven’t ever hired anyone in. But if I did, I don’t think I would tip them unless they really went above and beyond my expectations.
