Carpet Cleaning DIY vs. Professional

Carpet Cleaning DIY vs. Professional

If you’re considering getting your carpets cleaned, you’re probably wondering whether you should do it yourself or contact a professional. You’re pondering whether to rent a DIY carpet cleaning machine or pay a professional. Let’s examine your options before you head to your local rental company.

The Pros VS the Cons

A do-it-yourself carpet cleaning solution may enable you to clean your carpets at a lesser cost. However, keep in mind that you will need to purchase a solution as well as rent the machine, which will increase your costs. In the end, choosing the DIY method means sacrificing a significant amount of clean quality. Rentable carpet cleaning devices will remove part of the visible dirt. They are, however, poor at cleaning your carpets thoroughly. A professional truck mount carpet cleaning device is the best solution for the job.

Self-cleaning carpet cleaners have little water pressure and weak vacuums, compared to professional carpet cleaning solutions. This means that the carpet fibres will not be properly rinsed. Also, the low-pressure water you do use will not be adequately vacuumed up. As a result, the carpet may get moist and musty.

DIY Carpet Cleaning Removal of Pet Urine

It is nearly impossible to clean pet urine from carpets on your own. The pet urine stench will most likely remain no matter what treatments you use or how many times you use your rented out carpet cleaning machine. Many people are unaware that the urine has spread far beyond the carpet’s surface. The padding has gotten wet as well. We specialize in and do a lot of pet urine removal. Specialized treatments and equipment are necessary to remove pet urine from carpet.

Cleaning and Drying Your Carpet

If you’ve ever used a rented out carpet cleaning machine, you’ve probably seen the unclean water being taken from your carpet. Although these carpet cleaners remove some water and particles, they are unable to completely dry your carpets.

When a professional cleaning service, such as ours, cleans your carpet, we are able to extract significantly more water and dirt. Your carpets will be dryer and cleaner as a result. Aside from that, we will rake your carpet and use high-velocity fans to dry them quickly after cleaning.

Hot Water Provides a Better Carpet Cleaning

Because most machines lack a water heater, you are confined to the temperature of the water flowing out of your faucet when cleaning your carpets. Professional carpet cleaning truck mounts can boil water to the ideal temperature and maintain it at that temperature throughout the carpet cleaning procedure.

Many self carpet cleaning machines or spotters don’t even have their own heaters. This makes a significant difference in removing difficult stains and eliminating unpleasant odours. One of the features that distinguishes hot water extraction as the best carpet cleaning process available is its high temperatures. This hot water can penetrate the fibres of your carpet and eliminate built-up grime while also better activating the cleaning chemicals we employ.
