DIY Carpet cleaning machines vs paying professionals. What is the better route for the budget minded individual? Read more as we explore this option.
To keep a long story short. DIY carpet cleaning is a bad idea. The machines are ok, they are average, but the problems come with the lack of experience from the user. It’s too easy to damage your carpet and cause hundreds if not thousands in damages.
When it comes down to it we have seen it all. Carpets really need a professional to clean them. There are too many things that go wrong. You just need to weight up the two:
Professionals: Years of experience and countless methods that are used based on the carpet type and stains being dealt with.
DIY Machine: A carpet cleaning machine that tries to fit everything into one machine that is rented very cheaply that promises to fix everything?
Do you see our point of view now? And how silly it actually is to think that a single machine can match or beat professional services.
Even if you don’t call us today and you think our stance on DIY work is too harsh then we don’t mind. If you take your business elsewhere but drop the DIY idea then our job is done. That was the intention today. To save you from what could be an accident that can cost thousands of dollars.
Carpet is very particular and cleaning it needs care and attention. One stop shopping is asking for problems. It’s really no different to going to a random restaurant and demanding a pizza when they only do Greek food for example. You can’t get another type of food just because they sell food.
On occasion, and have to laugh, as we get a customer calling us and explaining they want a professional service. And they ask very particular questions like what machines we use and so on.
Most of the time, this is due to the fact that we are the second company they have called. The first was a booking they made and some random person impersonated being a highly experienced carpet cleaning professional. But showed up in an unmarked car (no company branding) and a rug doctor.
Like we said before, we can only laugh, as we side with these customers. We know why they never let the person clean their carpets and we are more than happy to answer all their questions when they call us with a bit of skepticism. Which is always dissolved by the time we are done talking and get them booked in.
If you don’t know what you are doing you could end up damaging your carpet. Regardless of the instructions that come along with a carpet cleaning machine that you hire.
