Why you should avoid cleaning your own carpet
In this day and age there are plentry of DIY household jobs that you would have hired a professional to do some years ago. Carpet cleaning appears to be one of those household jobs and whilst DIY carpet cleaning seems like a low cost option at the beginning, it could cost you far more in the long run.
First of all, the machines you hire from the supermarket can set you back a few dollars to begin with. From the hire of the machine to purchasing the expensive cleaning chemicals the whole exercise is not cheap. Then you have to lug the large machine from the supermarket into your car and back again, all this effort and you haven't even started.
The machines you hire from the supermarket are fairly rudimentary and lack a powerful vacuum to collect the chemical and water that it feeds into your carpet which can lead to over-wetting. Over-wetting is particularly dangerous as it can cause water staining and promotes the growth of mold and mildew in the carpet fibers.
On many occasions we have been called out because one of these DIY carpet cleaning machines have left the carpet too wet and we've had to use our industrial carpet cleaning equipment to extract all the water from the carpet and clean out the chemical residue that the machine was unable to collect.
So whilst the DIY option may seem appealing, consider the cost to you if it all goes awry. At best you'll have OK looking carpets, possibly with some chemical residue, at worst you'll be paying for professional carpet cleaner to come and try and fix the damage and failing that, you're up for all new carpet.
