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.
Our goal here today is to save your carpet. Even if you don’t call us and use our services at least we have done our job and educated you that carpet cleaning should be left to the professionals.
The real issue if we dive deeper is that each carpet is different. So is each stain. So treating your carpet as a one-stop shop buffet that serves nothing but average food in mass (the DIY machine) is the polar opposite way you should be going about things. You should be eating at a restaurant that serves just the food you’re looking for such as an award-winning Italian restaurant is you want pizza (the comparison for the professional service provider).
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.
We could go on for the next 5 hours. But let’s not do that. We think you get the point. Leave the cleaning to the experts. If you don’t want to end up with an expensive carpet repair bill just hire a professional.
