Walking into your home every day to carpets that need cleaning isn’t only getting on your nerves, but it’s making that carpet cleaning rental machine at the grocery store look pretty good right about now. Before you take the plunge and try it the DIY way let’s go over the pros and cons so you can find the best solution for you!
Depending on how many rooms you have to tackle, the price of the rental machine slowly looses its value once you’re confined to carpet cleaning duty for countless hours. Professional carpet cleaners do this day after day so they’ll be in and out in no time with no chink in your schedule.
Have you ever tried to conquer a Pinterest project only to find out it was a lot more detailed than that little instructional could have ever lead you to believe? Well don’t make the same mistakes with your expensive carpets! Professionals have all the supplies you’ll need, hot water, powerful vacuums and more. You might be thinking “What could go wrong?”, but trust us, filmy residue, too much detergent, soaked carpets or lukewarm water half way through isn’t something you want to be dealing with!
Renting a carpet cleaning machine might seem like a good deal, but besides the time you’ll be spending, there’s more money going into the process than the rental price. You need to buy the supplies that will go along with the machine, pick up and drop off, as well as high return fees if you’re late. Hiring professionals doesn’t cost as much as you might think and the bonus is you get to sit back and relax knowing your carpets are getting cleaned to perfection – mistakes not included.
Before making your decision to DIY or call in the professionals ask yourself these questions:
- How much square footage do you have to clean?
- Do you have the time to dedicate to the process without doing a rush job?
- Are you willing to rent a high-end machine and read multiple instructions to get the job done properly?
- Is the value of your carpets worth the risk?
Make an informed decision before you waste time trying to figure out how to do the job or find yourself staring at your carpets, after the fact, wondering where you went wrong.
