There’s something pleasurable about the smell of fresh professionally cleaned deodorized carpets. It makes your home appealing to your guests and just makes you feel good about spending time at home kicking back and relaxing knowing that your carpet cleaning chores are taken care of. Cleaning you own carpets may have crossed your mind? After all you have probably seen an advertisement in a glossy magazine that suggests you can hire or purchase a ‘professional’ carpet cleaning machine that promises great results for next to nothing.
DIY Carpet Cleaning Solution?
After a trip to the store to hire or purchase the machine and the cleaning detergents, solutions plus all the additional bits and pieces that the sale person recommends which incidentally ends up costing you more than the ad originally suggested, you unload everything, read the often confusing and complicated set of directions, measure, mix and plug the machine in and all the while you are probably asking yourself the million dollar question. “Will I be happy with the results?” If you have experienced a professionally cleaned carpet that has been cleaned by a knowledgeable and experienced carpet cleaning technician such as the experts at Orange County Steam Masters, the honest answer is probably not. Why?
The skilled carpet cleaning technicians at Orange County Steam Masters have prepared the following list of reasons why DIY carpet cleaning is never a good idea and could result in irreparable damage to your carpet which will require at the very least, extensive repairs and worst case scenario complete replacement.
Don’t be fooled by the allure of a compact machine that claims to provide professional results. A carpet machine that you rent or purchase from a store is small for a very good reason. Too big and it won’t fit in your vehicle, and it will also be too heavy for you to lift. Think basic mathematics, a larger machine such as the one used by Orange County Steam Masters is heavier and larger allowing for bigger internal motors meaning more power which in turn provides for a much better cleaning result. Think more heat and extraction power providing cleaner, brighter, sanitized, deodorized and dryer carpets in a shorter period of time.
Some of the most common issues the professionals at Orange County Steam Masters reported from frantic DIY carpet cleaners include:
• Poor cleaning results – due to a lack of power from the machine
• Damp Carpets- causing a sour smell and other unpleasant odors
• Mold growth – due to oversaturating the carpet with water and cleaning solutions
• Carpet separating from the carpet backing (delaminating) caused by over wetting
• Discoloration of carpet – caused by over wetting
• Shrinkage – caused by excessive amounts of moisture
• Re-soiling – caused by high residue content of detergent that is left behind during the cleaning process.
