Professional Carpet Cleaning vs. DIY Carpet Cleaning

If you have carpet in your home, then you know that carpet collects dirt and over time it can start to show stains and traffic patterns. It is extremely important to not only routinely vacuum your carpets, but also clean your carpets. We recommend cleaning your carpets either semi annually or annually, depending on use. There are several ways to clean your carpets. The two most common ways are to DIY clean your carpets or hire a professional carpet cleaning company. Here are a few key differences of these two options.

  • DIY Carpet Cleaning – There are two main ways to DIY carpet cleaning. Either renting or owning your own carpet cleaner offers about the same level of cleaning quality. Cleaning your carpets with a rental will save you a little money, but it will cost you in your time as well as level of cleanliness. Cleaning your carpets yourself won’t get your carpets as clean as a professional carpet cleaning service. You also need to make sure that you do not oversaturate your carpets while cleaning them. Also, dealing with any equipment malfunctions and trying to get your rental returned on time can lead to frustration.
  • Professional Carpet Cleaning – A professional carpet cleaner can use a much more powerful carpet cleaner that is able to pull larger amounts of dirt and grime out of your carpets. We use machines that are not available to the public. We are able to navigate small and difficult areas more easily. We are experienced and can move quickly to give you cleaner carpets in a timely manner.

We know that you will love how your carpets look after we come in and professionally clean them.

Blot stains, Don’t rub them.

Dab stains with a cleaning solution and a clean cloth, paper towels, or a sponge. The key is blotting. Blotting puts a small amount of pressure on the stain to soak it up, Rubbing causes the particles to get ground into the carpet fibers, and this can lead to the premature breakdown of those fibers. Always blot from the outside of the stain inward, as blotting outward can spread the stain.

Carpets need to be vacuumed once a week and more often in areas of heavy traffic. Frequent vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet by preventing a buildup of gritty particles that can cut carpet fibers. Every few weeks, take a little extra time and use your crevice tool for cleaning around baseboards and radiators and in other hard-to-reach places.
To vacuum wall-to-wall carpeting, divide the floor into quadrants and vacuum an entire quadrant before moving on to the next.
Take your time when you vacuum a carpet, especially a plush carpet in which dirt is sure to be deeply embedded. One pass with a high-powered upright is not enough. Go over each section of carpeting several times, and work slowly to allow the suction to remove all the ground-in dust and dirt.
Pay special attention to the areas where people sit and move their feet. Vacuum these areas of heavy traffic with a crisscross pattern of overlapping strokes.
