Carpet cleaning is one task that many people choose to do themselves rather than hiring a professional. Homeowners often do this to save money, and believe they can achieve the same results as a professional by renting or buying carpet cleaning equipment. There are actually a number of reasons why DIY carpet cleaning is less effective.
More Powerful Equipment
Hot water extraction is the method most often used to clean carpets. This involves “injecting” hot water into your carpet and then suctioning it back out to remove dirt and grime. When you clean carpets yourself, you may leave a great deal of dirt behind because the equipment you are using is not powerful enough to remove all the water. The equipment used by professional carpet cleaners is more powerful than machines you can rent or buy yourself, which means more dirt will be removed. As such, there will be a noticeable difference in the way your carpet looks.
Expert Stain Removal
Are you confident you can remove any type of stain from your carpet? If you happen to leave stains behind, all your hard work won’t be noticed because your carpet will still appear dirty. Professional carpet cleaning technicians have the knowledge and experience needed to remove nearly any stain, so the odds of you being stuck with it are greatly diminished.
Different Carpets Require Different Techniques
Each type of carpet requires a different cleaning method in order to produce the best results possible. You probably don’t know what these methods are-or worse yet, may be stuck with only one because the equipment you are using only works one way. A professional carpet cleaner knows what techniques are best for the type of rug you have, and has equipment that is flexible enough to perform more than one cleaning method.
These are just a few reasons why professional carpet cleaning is recommended over DIY methods. To schedule carpet cleaning for your home or business, contact us.
