Professional Carpet Cleaning vs. DIY

Home > Steam Giant Blog > Professional Carpet Cleaning vs. DIY

You know you need carpet cleaning, and it may be tempting to try to clean your carpets yourself. You can rent a cheap carpet cleaner and try to clean your own carpets, but we do not recommend it. There are big differences between DIY carpet cleaning and professional carpet cleaning. We highly recommend professional carpet cleaning for the following reasons:

  • Dry Time – The time it takes your carpets to dry after a cleaning with a professional carpet cleaning is much less. This means you can get back to normal life that much faster when you choose to have your carpets professionally cleaned.

  • Equipment – You can buy or rent a carpet cleaning machine, but it will not be anywhere close to the same as a professional carpet cleaner’s equipment. Professionals are able to purchase very expensive equipment that suck up water and debris a lot better than anything you can buy or rent.
  • Experience – When you hire a professional, you are hiring someone who does this every day, all day. They have the experience to get tough stains out and know how to quickly get the job done.
  • Time – Cleaning your carpets yourself is time-consuming. Don’t waste your time. Hire a qualified professional to clean your carpets for you.

DIY carpet cleaning just isn’t the same thing as professional carpet cleaning. When you hire a professional, your carpets will be cleaned and dried quickly and more thoroughly, and you won’t have to waste your time cleaning your carpets. When you are ready to have your carpets professionally cleaned, be sure to give us a call at Steam Giant.
