Should You Rent Your Carpet Cleaning Machine?

Having your carpets cleaned usually falls in the same category as spring cleaning; a very boring necessity. When you choose to clean your carpets it’s a choice between hiring a machine out to do it yourself, or hire a professional company for Carpet cleaning in Aberdeen. Doing the job yourself may be a little more cost effective of course, but it may not do the best job. You sometimes need to go the extra mile and hire a cleaning machine to do the carpets for you. There is a difference between using a professional company and cleaning it yourself with a carpet steamer.

Hiring a steam cleaning machine definitely don’t compare with those used by professional carpet cleaning companies as they are generally nowhere near as powerful and not very effective. The chemicals that come with the machines are rather cheap and your carpets can be left wet or discoloured. The machines don’t effectively suck the water back out of the carpet fibres and therefore can leave mildew smells coming from the carpet pad. When it comes to hiring in a professional company, you can be assured that the carpet cleaning company will have paid thousands of pounds for the proper equipment and will employ and train their staff to use the machines competently. This way, you know you’ve paid for a high quality service and a high quality job will be done. A good company will carry out an inspection of your carpets before thoroughly cleaning them. They can check the type of carpet you have and make a choice on how to clean that particular material.

In areas of heavy traffic, a special pre-conditioning agent is applied to help break down heavy soiling. Any individual stains are treated with the correct chemicals to ensure that they are removed completely and you can really see the difference in the carpet straight away. Your carpets will be steam-cleaned using a top-spec, super-powerful carpet cleaning machine. This machine removes all the dirt, allergens and stains from your carpets, whilst simultaneously sucking out any moisture, thus avoiding over-wetting and totally avoiding mildew stenches. Home steamers can leave the carpet too damp for too long!

A professional cleaning will always be the more expensive option but when you think about it, hiring a steam cleaning machine to do the job several times if it leaves your carpet stained, will cost you less in the short term but you’ll have to repeat the job over and over. If you pay once or twice for a professional that job will last a lot longer and you’ll be able to enjoy cleaner carpets for longer. If you do decide to go ahead and do your own make sure you run the machine outside first with some water just to enjoy the pipes and the tanks are clean. Using a proper company to do the carpet for you can really make all the difference to your home or office.
