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.
The reality is that after 20 or so years in the carpet cleaning business we have seen our fair share of damaged carpets through botched DIY jobs. We have seen it all, from a carpet that has been ripped apart, to the wrong cleaning chemicals used that have caused horrible discoloration.
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.
Each type of carpet needs to be cleaned in a different manner. A one-stop shop does not work for carpets. Just like you wouldn’t go to a local doctor who sees you for 10 minutes and expect him to fix a serious issue on the spot. He would refer you to the right specialized doctor.
Now imagine for a moment that you have read what we have just educated you on. And you booked in a professional carpet cleaning service with a random company. Everything looked perfect on their website and they were very professional on the phone.
Then when they showed up for the appointment it was just a guy who hired a rug doctor from the store 10 minutes beforehand.
We hear this story now and again from our clients when they book with us to get a real professional in. It’s quite obvious why they never let the rug doctor guy into their home.
So if you don’t know what you are doing you can cause big problems for yourself. So, a good question to ask yourself self is the following:
Are you a trained expert in the field of cleaning carpets? If you aren’t, you should call a professional instead.
Call us today on (289) 312-0067 to discuss your options and get your service booked in.
