DIY Carpet Cleaning Teesside – Is It Worth It?


DIY Carpet Cleaning Teesside – Should You Hire A Professional Carpet Cleaning Company or Rather Do It Yourself?

Hiring a professional carpet cleaning service in Teesside doesn’t come cheap so it’s understandable that you might want to have a go yourself and save yourself a ton of money in the process. After all it’s easy to hire the equipment so why not? While given the right circumstances it might be a good idea, it also poses it’s own countless problems that you really should be aware of.

Strenuous activity

If you get out of puff vacuuming your carpet then you really shouldn’t attempt a full carpet clean. Giving your carpet the same level of cleaning as a professional would requires a lot of rigorous movement, bending, and lifting of heavy machinery, so if you’re breaking sweat just think about it, then it might be best to give it a miss. There is plenty of great carpet cleaners in Teesside after all. Most of them are local to you. There are even loads of great carpet cleaning companies with years of experience, right tools and equipment, proper insurances in place and years of trading knowledge after all.

Insufficient knowledge

How complicated can it be to remove a stain from a carpet or use a carpet cleaning machine properly? If you know what you’re doing, then the answer is not very. However if you’re simply ‘winging it’ then you could end up causing more damage than you first started off with. Also you need to remember that different carpets require different approaches as they come in all shapes and sizes from fine delicate rugs through to heavy-duty shag pile. As a result incorrect cleaning might not only damage the carpet thus lessening it’s shelf-life, it can also become susceptible to new degrees of staining and dirt and cause water damage to the underlay, floor boards and even the ceilings of your home or office. Not just that it may well post an electric shock. The machine may not have been tested before it was rented or handed out to you. It may have been used in an extremely dirty property and may not be disinfected and sanitised before being handed it over to you. There are range of reasons why you should think twice.

Overdoing the water

Most carpet cleaning kits that you hire aren’t as powerful as the type that most seasoned carpet cleaning companies use. For instance they don’t have the powerful vacuums that are needed to suck up the water. This is key because if you leave too much water in the carpet for any length of time then it can become susceptible to mould. Once this happens then aside from being dangerous, it will ruin your carpet completely as there’s a strong chance that it can’t be saved. What’s more; too much water can also shrink certain types of carpet so that it no longer fits the area. As a result you really have to be careful.

Not as cost-saving as you might think

In terms of carpet cleaning equipment hire, cleaning supplies, time taken to achieve the desired results (if at all) and the physical strain of doing so, it’s probably far better to initially pay that little bit extra knowing that at the end of the day, you’re going to have a great looking carpet that not looks clean but feels clean too.
