Sounds like the old traditional Kirby Vacuum patter, not a carpet clean as such, just a vacuum.If you do let them in beware, as you say two hours of hard sales patter at least.

Sounds very much like Kirby cleaners. Don't believe them.

Our next door neighbour practiced on us once. Yes, at least 2 hours talk and they clean a patch of the carpet, a square by the door or something, just to show you how it works. If you want the rest of the carpet done you have to do it yourself, and will probably buy one of their cleaners !
Don't let the buggers in.
Feel sorry for the kids that take these jobs on, but when interviewed they are not told much about the job or even which company it is for. Based in Birkenhead.

I had these a few years back,the first time I got the sales pitch but I wasn't going to buy one & after that they would come round & clean the carpet but you had to recommend 10 other people.The last time they came round they saw a dyson in the hall so I didn't get bothered again still got my free washing up stuff or whatever it was they were giving away.

cheers for the replies people. I've been going through it in my head and this chap didn't give me the name of the product, his company etc so ill just ignore the door when they knock (if they knock) and if they persist ill have to go out and tell them to do one.
