Carpet Cleaning – Hire a Professional

It may seem at first more costly to hire a professional carpet cleaner, however once you actually consider all the factors involved in doing it yourself, you might have a different opinion.

For a start you will need to travel to the hire shop and pickup your hired carpet cleaning machine unless you pay extra and get it delivered to your door.   Then you need to setup,  find out what you are doing, roll up your sleeves and start work. 

Remember to check if the carpet cleaning machine is clean before you start, you don’t want to start spreading someone elses dirt over your living room or bedroom floor.     Don’t forget the carpet cleaning solution.   This raises many questions like what kind do you buy, does it contain harmful toxins, will there be residue remaining in the carpet afterwards, will this actually cause more damage to your carpet?    Will you get good results?    Will your carpet get soaked and take days to dry?   Will mould develop and ruin the carpet?   Then after all that hard work, remember you will have to return the carpet machine to the hire shop.  

In many cases people just need to find a reputable carpet cleaning company who will charge a fair price for a hassle free job.    Picking the wrong carpet cleaner or trying the carpet clean yourself and you could end up with soaking wet carpets, damaged underlay, mould and possible shrinkage.

If you do decide to go it alone, research the carpet cleaning chemicals available and be careful with those that may contain harmful solvents and toxins.    Think about the drying process as hired machines tend to soak the carpet and therefore the carpet will take longer to dry out.   Atmospheric conditions are important and will impact on the drying time.   Carpet cleaners have air movers which are like large hair dryers which speed up the drying process by blasting cool air.   If you don’t have the benefit of air movers then all you can do is open the windows and keep the air warm by switching on the central heating.
