There is no better feeling than walking into a home with freshly cleaned carpets and rugs. Not only does it create a great first impression, it can also improve the air quality within your home. When it comes to cleaning carpets you may be on the fence about the way to get them cleaned, caught between the decision to do-it-yourself or arrange for a professional carpet cleaning service. If you decide to go the DIY route you could end up being very disappointed with the results. According to the knowledgeable experts at Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists, understanding the differences between renting a carpet cleaning machine at your local grocery store and hiring a professional carpet cleaning service are a world apart when you consider the results.
Disadvantages of DIY Carpet Cleaning Rental Machines
When you take a moment to really think about it, contacting a professional carpet cleaning service makes perfect sense. Carpet cleaning machines that you rent from a store are compact and light to make them easy to lift and transport. But these same attributes make them inefficient at providing the quality clean that you need them to do. A smaller size machine means there is a limit to the amount of power that they can provide, making them messy and difficult to use. On the other hand, a professional carpet cleaning service provides you with the best of both worlds. Convenience combined with a superior cleaning power provided by powerful truck mounted hot-water extraction carpet cleaning equipment.
Hidden Dangers of Using DIY Carpet Cleaning Equipment
Have you ever stopped and watched an in-store commercial on rental carpet cleaning machines? Sure everything looks so easy, the equipment, the cleaning process, and the actual results? What they don’t tell you are the many issues and subpar results that operators experience while using these machines including:
• Substandard results due to a lack of power from the machine
• Carpets saturated with moisture resulting in sour odors
• Mold growth due to moisture
• Delaminated Carpets (separating from the carpet backing) due to water saturation
• Shrinkage caused by excessive moisture or water
• Discoloration and water staining
• Repeat soiling caused by a buildup of soap residue
Mold in particular can cause serious respiratory issues in those individuals who are susceptible. Carpets damaged by water often have to be replaced making your carpet machine rental cost much more than you initially anticipated.
