Why Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner? Because DIY Can Ruin Your Carpet Fibers

Being a do-it-yourselfer is something to be proud of, but when it comes to cleaning carpets, it’s not about ability, it’s about having the right equipment and tools. While rental units like Rug Doctor or Bissell may work well enough for individual spot stains, they are truly not powerful enough to get the whole job done correctly. Resurfaced stains and damaged carpet fibers are common results of using portable or rental equipment. In addition, these rental carpet cleaning tools often leave a soapy residue in your carpet, which will actually attract more soil in the long run. Lingering moisture in your carpet allows soil to move through the carpet fibers so that stains you thought were removed will come back as the carpet fully dries.

Better Equipment Means a Better Clean

In comparison to our professional carpet cleaning equipment, there is a considerable difference in power and suction from standard rental equipment. We’ll ensure a complete clean and extract all water and moisture when finished, protecting your carpet from returning stains or the possibility of mold growth.

Carpets accumulate a large amount of soil over time, especially in busy offices or other commercial centers. Several pounds of soil can become embedded in them every year! This includes dirt, dust, allergens and human skin flakes collecting within the fibers. All carpets should be professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months to ensure proper decontamination. When carpets are neglected, they can exacerbate your allergies and decrease the indoor air quality of your home or business. Hiring a professional carpet cleaner will guarantee removal of all soils damaging your carpets and protect your carpet from further dirt and grime buildup.
