Why hire a professional carpet cleaner?

If you’ve been thinking about getting your carpets cleaned, you may have asked yourself the question… “why hire a professional carpet cleaner when I can do it myself?”

Carpet adds warmth and style to a home, but understanding how best to clean and maintain your carpets can be confusing at the best of times as there is so much conflicting information out there!

Here are some points to consider when thinking about getting your carpets cleaned…

The health risks of a dirty carpet

A dirty carpet is not just an eyesore – it also poses a health risk. Carpet can store allergens that over time will affect the health of you and your family. Dust, pollen and pet hair can all be trapped in the carpet and then released into the atmosphere every time you vacuum or walk on it.

DIY carpet cleaning machines don’t come close to the effectiveness of a professional machine in removing soiling and stains. A professional carpet cleaning company will ensure a thorough deep clean that will minimize potential allergens.

Allergens – Dust Mites

Many people have a dust mite infestation without even realizing it. Dust mite allergies are associated with eczema, asthma and rhinitis.

A shop bought carpet cleaning detergent and under-powered machine will not effectively remove mites. Professional hot water extraction cleaning (steam cleaning) is necessary to ensure the effective removal of dust mites.

Many carpet cleaning companies will also offer a dust mite spray treatment that can be used to kill the mites.

Why hire a professional carpet cleaner?

All carpets, rugs and upholstery are different and are made up of different fibers. A professional carpet cleaner will know how to treat each type and the appropriate solutions to use for specific stains and spots.

Hiring a machine and attempting to remove stains from an expensive carpet can prove disastrous. Possible damage includes shrinkage of carpets, browning, setting of stains and lingering odours caused by over-wetting.

Regularly hiring a professional cleaner (every 6-18 months depending on soiling) will reduce allergens, improve your health and help prolong the life of your expensive carpets and upholstery.

Finally, the reason most people book a professional is due to the results they can achieve.

After-all, when was the last time you saw a rental machine achieve results like this???
