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 debating whether to rent your own DIY carpet cleaning machine or hire a company. Before you drive to your local rental shop, let’s compare your options.

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. Carpet cleaning machines that you can rent out will eliminate some of the visible dirt. They are, however, ineffective in thoroughly cleaning your carpets. 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 you will not properly rinse the carpet fibres. Also, the low pressure water you do put down will not be adequately vacuumed up. This could result in a damp, musty-smelling carpet.

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 much beyond the surface of the carpet. The cushioning has also become wet. We specialize in pet urine removal and perform a lot of it. To remove pet urine from carpet, specialist treatments and equipment are required.

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 debris, they are unsuccessful at drying your carpets fully.

When a professional cleaning service, such as ours, cleans your carpet, we are able to extract significantly more water and dirt. As a result, your carpets will be dryer and cleaner. Aside from that, we carpet rake and utilize high velocity fans to quickly dry your carpets 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 heat water to the ideal temperature (near boiling) and keep it there throughout the carpet cleaning process.

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. The high temperatures of hot water extraction are one of the factors that separates it as the best carpet cleaning technique available. This hot water can penetrate your carpet’s fibres and remove built-up filth, while also better activating the cleaning chemicals we use.
