DIY Carpet Cleaning Vs. Professional

If you’re thinking about cleaning your carpets, you’ve probably wondered if you should consider Carpet cleaning yourself or if you should hire a professional. You’re probably torn between renting your own DIY carpet cleaning machine or hiring a professional. Before you drive to your local rental store and bring home a Rug Doctor, let’s compare your options.

Making the Right Carpet Cleaning Choice

Our goal is to help you make the correct decision for your home. We want you to have a clean and comfortable home with beautiful carpets that are free of unpleasant odors and stains.

Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning Machines Vs. Professional Equiptments

A DIY carpet cleaning system can allow you to clean your carpets for a lower price. However, keep in mind that you will also need to purchase a solution and rent the machine, which will increase costs. Ultimately, by going DIY, you will be sacrificing a significant level of cleaning quality. Do-it-yourself rug cleaners like Rug Doctor, which you rent from your local store to take home, are fine for cleaning shallow rugs. They will take away some of the dirt you can see. However, they are not good for deep cleaning your carpets. To get the job done right, a Professional carpet cleaning system is the right choice.

DIY Carpet Cleaning Machines Are Weak

Automatic carpet cleaning machines have low water pressure and weak vacuums. Unlike professional carpet cleaning systems. This means that you won’t rinse the carpet fibers well. In addition, the low pressure water that you deposit will not be sucked up properly. This can leave you with a damp, musty-smelling carpet.

Hiring a professional carpet cleaning service is the quality choice

If you’re looking for high-quality deep carpet cleaning, hiring professionals is the only way to go. When you schedule professional carpet cleaning services, you not only clean the top of the carpet, but the padding as well. Talk to us about how our truck-mounted carpet cleaning equipment can remove even the deepest dirt and toughest stains from your carpet.

Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning of Pet Urine Disposal

Home cleaning of carpets with pet urine is almost impossible. No matter what solutions you put in or how many times you use your carpet doctor, the smell of pet urine is likely to be there. What many people don’t realize is that the urine has gone far beyond the surface of the carpet. The filling is also saturated. We are experts at pet urine disposal and we do it a lot. Specialized solutions and specialized equipment are usually required to remove pet urine from carpet.

Drying carpet after cleaning

If you’ve ever used a Rug Doctor or similar equipment, you’ve likely noticed dirty water as it’s being extracted from your carpet. Although these carpet cleaners remove some of the water and dirt, they are not effective at thoroughly drying carpets. When a professional team like ours cleans your carpet, we are able to extract much more water and therefore much more dirt from your carpets. This leaves you with drier, cleaner carpets as an end result. Beyond that, we also rake carpets and use high speed fans to speed up the drying of your carpets after cleaning. This is really beneficial if you have furry friends. If your rugs are still damp after you’ve cleaned them and your four-legged friends hang out on these extremely wet rugs, you’ll end up with a less-than-pleasant smell. Through our high powered carpet cleaning process, we are able to leave your carpets slightly damp. With the high speed fans we also use, your rugs will be nearly dry by the time we leave. No musty smells here!

Hot water provides a better carpet cleaning

When you clean your carpets yourself, you are limited to the temperature of the water that comes out of the tap, as most machines don’t even have a water heater. Professional Carpet Cleaning can heat water to the ideal temperature (almost boiling) and maintain its temperature during carpet cleaning. Many automatic carpet cleaning machines or detectors don’t even have their own heaters. This makes a big difference in removing tough stains and removing stains.

Many automatic carpet cleaning machines or detectors don’t even have their own heaters. This makes a big difference in removing tough stains and getting rid of unpleasant odors. The extreme temperatures of hot water extraction are part of what distinguishes it as the best carpet cleaning solution available. This hot water can penetrate the fibers of your carpets and remove accumulated dirt from the carpet, while better activating the solutions we apply to clean your carpets.

DIY Carpet Cleaning May Damage Your Carpet

When you clean your own rugs, you also run the risk of damaging your rug. Some rental carpet cleaners are extremely harsh and can cause faster wear and tear on your carpets than professional services. A professional carpet cleaner is dedicated to knowing exactly how to care for your specific type of carpet.
