If you consider yourself pretty handy, you may think it will be no problem to add carpet cleaning to your bi-annual chore list. You may want to reconsider. While it’s noble to take charge of maintaining your home and property, this is one area that’s usually best left to the pros.
Torn between renting a carpet cleaning machine and hiring a carpet cleaning company in Metro Detroit? First, take a beat to compare your options.
Tackling Carpet Cleaning in Metro Detroit Yourself
Sure, it might be cheaper on the surface to clean your own carpets, but you’ll pay a lot more in time and inconvenience when you realize how much equipment and cleaning agents you will need to gather. The time and costs involved will all add up and have you wishing you just hired a pro in the first place.
Also, the carpet cleaning rental machine you get from your local home improvement store is not industrial-strength like the systems used by the professionals. You will soon realize that you have thrown good money after bad when you clean your own carpets. You’re giving up on a high level of quality just to save a few bucks. DIY machines are OK for surface dirt, but they won’t get deep down like professional grade systems can.
This is due in large part to the low water pressure and weak vacuums, compromising their ability to thoroughly rinse carpet fibers. Plus, when you do it yourself, it takes days for the carpet to dry, which can lead to mold growth. That’s because you’re using too much water and you’re saturating the carpet more than is necessary. And good luck getting out the pet urine odors. That’s because urine tends to saturate the padding and remain there, contributing to foul odors all throughout your home.
Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaner in Metro Detroit
Getting a high quality, deep carpet clean is only achieved by hiring experienced professionals who have all the proper equipment to go beyond the surface and down into the fibers and padding. To illustrate this, we use a powerful truck-mounted system that is designed to suck out deep-set grime and tough stains. You will also appreciate that our dry times are quicker, taking only a few hours rather than a few days.
We are also pet urine and odor removal experts, using specialty solutions and techniques to extract deep-set odors – even odors due to smoke.
Professional machines use extremely hot water to effectively clean carpets, but by comparison, those DIY carpet cleaning machines can’t achieve very high temperatures because they rely on hot water from the tap.
The Butler System is built right into our vans, getting its power from a strong V-8 motor ensuring a consistent 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This means the water is hot enough to kill bacteria and odors, while grabbing deeply-embedded dirt thanks to the constant powerful suction.
Professionals also know how to effectively clean your carpets without damaging them. The same can’t be said for your DIY efforts.
