Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning vs Professional Cleaning

Cleaning your carpets is a chore that very few of us are excited to tackle. Why? Well because it’s not very fun to do. But given that it’s necessary to maintain cleanliness, we do it anyway.


What many carpet owners don’t realize is that carpet cleaning is not merely cosmetic. Dirt is a carpet’s worst enemy. With every footstep microscopic gritty soil not seen by the eye causes damage to your carpet. Even microscopic soil particles have sharp edges that can cut carpet fibers. When carpet is walked on, fibers are damaged and come loose. The fuzz mixed in with the dirt in the canister of your vacuum is evidence of this. The fuzz is actually the carpet going out the door, one bag at a time.


Professional Carpet Cleaners Do What Rental Carpet Cleaning Machines Can’t

For optimal performance and duration, manufacturers recommend having your carpet professionally cleaned at minimum every 12 – 18 months, depending on the amount of traffic in your home. In fact, many warranties stipulate this — be sure to be informed and carefully read your warranty information. Despite this fact, many people only have their carpets cleaned once every few years (and some not even that).

While a DIY approach may appeal to your pocketbook, you may want to consider the larger picture. If you’re a novice at carpet cleaning, the quality of DIY – rug doctor type – machines can be a big issue. If not maintained properly, rental machines often dump too much detergent onto the carpet. Assuming the machine is doing what it’s supposed to do, you may keep going not realizing there is problem.

Problems such as this give professionals with truck-mounted equipment the edge in several ways. Because they clean carpets day after day, they aren’t as likely to make mistakes such as using too much detergent or neglecting to rinse away all residues. Also, the trucks deliver hot water, which boosts the detergent’s effectiveness. With a rental machine, the best you can do is to pour hot water into the mixing tank and hope it doesn’t cool off too much as you clean. Finally, professionals benefit from having more powerful vacuum systems. Because they remove more water they remove more dirt, it’s possible to rinse more thoroughly as well.
