If you enjoy tackling DIY projects around your home, you may think about renting a carpet cleaner and cleaning your new carpet yourself. While using a rented carpet cleaner is an easy task, it might not be the right choice for a new carpet. Here are four reasons why you should hire a residential carpet cleaning service instead.
1. You Might Void The Warranty With DIY Cleaning
Be sure to read the warranty that comes with your new carpet. It may require that you have professional carpet cleaning done at a certain frequency in order to maintain the warranty. This would require receipts from a carpet cleaning company that proved you had the work done. Using a rented carpet cleaner might save money at the time, but it could end up costing more if the warranty won't be honored when you need it.
2. Professional Equipment Extracts More Water
One of the main hazards of DIY carpet cleaning is leaving the carpet too damp. A carpet that is damp for too long will develop a musty odor and the carpet may even start to grow mold. It's best to dry the carpet as fast as possible, and that requires a powerful machine that extracts most of the water from the fibers.
The threat of musty odors and mold is greatly reduced when you hire a professional cleaner. Plus, when the carpet dries faster, you can place the furniture back in the room quicker and walk on the carpet sooner.
3. Professionals Can Remove Stains And Odors
It's disheartening to get a stain on a new carpet from food or pet urine, especially if you can't get the stain and odor out no matter what you do. The solution is to have the carpet cleaned by a professional. Point the stained area out first so it can be treated with the right chemicals before the carpet is cleaned. Using the right cleaning products for the type of stain and type of carpet fibers is important or the stain may set rather than break up and disappear.
4. Professional Cleaning Is More Convenient
Besides being safer and more thorough, professional cleaning is more convenient. If you need to clean your carpets before a holiday, you probably have other things to do besides clean carpets all day. You may want to move the furniture from the room when you hire a professional, but other than that, you won't have to do anything but admire the fresh smell and clean look of your carpet after it's been cleaned.Share

Hello, my name is Kirk. Welcome to my website about cleaning. When I developed asthma, I had to figure out the best way to manage my health. Since my asthma worsened with exposure to allergens, I had to dedicate myself to deep cleaning my home on a regular basis. I learned a lot about keeping my home clean using natural products and methods. I also utilize cleaning services when I cannot perform the work myself. I would like to help others learn how to keep their home clean and tidy on their own and with professional help. I hope you will follow along to learn all you can about cleaning your home. Thanks for visiting.
