We all know that we need to give our carpets a really good clean every 12 to 18 months. But it’s such a chore that we usually put it off until we can’t stand it anymore. So when you have made the decision to finally do something about your soiled carpets!
Do you DIY or hire a professional?
Benefits of cleaning your own carpets
The main reason that people clean their own carpets is because of the cost. It’s fair to say that hiring your own carpet cleaning equipment will be cheaper than hiring a professional to do the job. So if your only priority is cost, then a DIY job is for you.
On the other hand, think of the time you spend going to the store, lugging the machine out to the car. Then trying to get it in the car! Next, consider the time it takes to learn how to use the equipment. Lastly, actually cleaning your carpets yourself.
DIY carpet cleaning equipment isn’t as good as the equipment used by professionals. So your carpets won’t be as clean! The professionals can do a better job and more quickly.
Benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaner
Professional carpet cleaning equipment heats the temperature of the water to a much higher temperature than DIY machines. Therefore, they give a much better clean. Professional machines are also more powerful than DIY machines and can extract more dirt and more water from the carpet.
Carpet cleaners also know how to clean carpets, because they do it for a living. There is a certain technique that is needed to ensure that the carpets are deeply cleaned. Furthermore, it isn’t easy to learn on your own.
All of this means that your carpets are cleaner and drier when professionally cleaned than when you spend a day doing it yourself.
So if you want a really good clean, you need to hire a professional carpet cleaner.
