In a climate where money is tight, most people try to do as much of their own home maintenance as possible. That includes deep cleaning jobs like getting rid of mould from their drives, patios and brickwork. If you already have a good quality jet washer, it makes sense to do it yourself rather than pay someone else to do it.
However, for some jobs it is still better to bring in a professional. One example is having your carpets cleaned. Here are four good reasons to call in the professionals.
Truly Clean Carpets
Any equipment that is designed for home users is not going to do as good a job as the machines a professional cleaning firm uses. Their cleaners clean deep down, so you end up with cleaner carpets.
No matter how careful you are or how often you pass the cleaner over your carpet it will still end up feeling damp. Industrial cleaners suck up muchmore moisture.
Your carpets will be dry to the touch. There is also no musty smell when you use a professional firm to clean your carpets, because far more moisture is removed.
Preserve Your Carpets
Specialist carpets made out of materials like pure wool, jute, sea grass, coir or sisal have to be dry-cleaned, which means finding and buying specialist chemicals. Getting hold of the right cleaning products and using them safely is very difficult for homeowners. In some cases, it is impossible.
In addition, the homeowner need only make a small mistake to end up completely ruining their very expensive carpet. Using a professional avoids both of these issues.
Because of economies of scale carpet cleaning firms can buy the specialist cleaning products that are needed at a low price. Many people who clean their own carpets do not work out how much the chemicals they use will cost. Often it is nearly as cheap to get a professional in to do the job.
This is especially the case when you consider that the carpet is not likely to need cleaning again for a year or more. Whereas a carpet cleaned by a homeowner is likely to need cleaning again two or three times a year.
