Should I Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner?

Carpet Cleaning

Professional carpet cleaning will be a necessity - sooner or later. Using other over the counter measures like Scotchgard and cleaning up spills and messes quickly will indeed keep your carpet clean for a long time, but eventually a time will come when your carpet will need to be properly cleaned using steaming and hot water extraction methods. Whether you are moving and want to spruce up your resale value of your home, or throwing a huge party and want to impress, having your carpets professionally cleaned can make a major impact.

Cleaning your own carpets and rugs has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the major disadvantages is not knowing exactly what your results are going to be.  With many different types of fabrics and materials within your carptes, different chemicals and cleaning agents react differently - and sometimes if you do not perform it correctly, it can be disastrous. Also, using a carpet cleaning machine that you unfamiliar with might end up leaving your carpets wet and prone to molding. However, if you are sure that you will be able to do the job yourself and really know how to use carpet cleaning machines, how to use chemicals, which ones to use and where, then you can save a few dollars by doing the job yourself.

Please keep in mind to only use solutions and chemicals that are safe, not only to the environment, but more importantly to you and your family. Be sure to read all warnings and precautions on the carpet cleaner packs and follow them to the letter.

Hiring a professional carpet & rug cleaner potentially comes with some pros and cons as well. Expertise is the #1 advantage.  They will know which chemicals to use for your rugs and carpets.  They generally have off-site cleaning facilities so that they are not inconveniencing your home life.  And of course they can provide knowledge and advice for on-going maintenance and care. Like any service there is a cost, but generally it far outweighs the burden of doing it yourself and the risk of ruining your fine carpets and rugs.
