Your carpets need to be deep cleaned once or twice a year in order to remove the compacted dirt and debris below the surface along with any spots, stains, and odors. In conjunction with routine vacuuming, deep carpet cleaning is an essential element to your carpet maintenance that can ensure your carpets are healthy and last to their expected lifespan and potentially more. When it comes to deep cleaning the carpets, there are options homeowners have. With DIY carpet cleaners for purchase or rent, or hiring professional services; what is best for your needs? We at Go Green Carpet Cleaning would like to discuss DIY Carpet Cleaning VS Professional Carpet Cleaning for your Southern California home.

Steam Carpet Cleaner Rental

Renting the equipment to deep clean your carpets is generally readily available in department stores and home improvement stores. For those don’t have the initial funds or space to store their own deep cleaning machine, renting is an adequate alternative. To take care of pet odors, or spot or stains, these machines are moderately effective. They can also remove a minimal amount of the under-rooted dirt and debris. These machines are incomparable to professional grade but can help combat stains and odors to a degree.

Buying Home Carpet Cleaner Equipment

Quite a few homeowners prefer to invest in owning their own deep carpet cleaner as opposed to renting one. Especially for homes that have little ones and pets that frequently have spills and accidents to control the odors and stains. Having the option to reach for a deep carpet cleaner when an accident besmirches can often prevent stubborn stains. Additionally, those who diligently use their carpet cleaner can often reduce the need for professional carpet cleaning, but it does not replace the service. Like rentals, the machines effectiveness does not compare to the powerful efficiency available to professional use. At the minimum, you should still schedule professional deep carpet cleaning annually to ensure healthy and beautiful carpets.

Hiring Professional Carpet Cleaning

Generally, carpet cleaners available for DIY use simply run over the surface. They can help tackle fresh spills and accident and remove some stains and help reduce carpet odors as well as extract a portion of the dirt and debris lurking just beneath surface, but they do not have the force to get deeper or efficiently remove all stains and odors. Licensed professionals have exclusive equipment and products that are far more effective at removing the dirt and debris that has penetrated deep below the surface, remove the majority of stains and neutralize most odors. Ultimately, no other method or option is as effective as professional carpet cleaning.

Where DIY carpet cleaning equipment can contribute to keeping your carpets in optimal condition, they are not designed to be a replacement for professional carpet cleaning services and can actually lead to a myriad of problems. Plug in machines don’t extract as much water and cleaning solution as powerful truck mounted machines do. This can lead to unhealthy mold and dirtier carpets as the left in solution can actually attract more dirt. Over time, the deep-seeded dirt and debris makes carpet look dingy and dull and even with routine vacuuming, the vacuuming cannot get all of the particles and it will eventually add up. The lingering debris can trigger allergies and asthma as well. Professional cleaning can extract the dirt, allergens, and other contaminants below the carpet’s surface as well as remove the spots and stains and neutralize and control the odors to maintain vibrant and beautiful carpets.
