1. Carpets and rugs are cut from different cloth.
Depending on whether your carpets are wool or synthetic and how your carpet is made, your carpet may need to be cleaned in a particular way. Professionals will know the best cleaning method and the right treatments to use.
2. You don’t have to rent or buy your own carpet cleaning equipment.
Many carpet cleaning machines sold in retail stores are not as effective as professional cleaners because they do not have the required heat and suction. Most carpets require high heat to clean (210° F) and your carpets will be wetter for a longer period of time if you don’t have enough suction for proper drying.
3. Professionals can tackle the difference between spots and stains.
Some cleaning products could make a stain worse if not properly used. Professionals are trained in the science behind removing stains and will know how to handle them without damaging your carpet.
4. Retail carpet cleaners do not have sanitizing systems.
Bacterial and dust mites lodged in your carpets are actually killed using professional cleaning systems which help keep your home clean while also cutting down on allergens.
5. Some professional cleaners use low-moisture equipment and techniques to clean.
One of the main downsides of carpet cleaning is the amount of moisture left in your carpet which can take several hours to dry and possibly lead to the growth of mold. At True North Cleaning Professionals, we provide high speed fans while we are working to help speed up the drying process and make your home more comfortable, more quickly.
To be fair, because carpet cleaning is a lot of work, we invest a great deal into the equipment that will do the absolute best job for you as a home-owner. By contrast, it is like someone showing up with a shovel instead of an excavator to dig the foundation for a new home. If those small rental machines were actually suitable for cleaning carpets, we wouldn’t invest thousands of dollars in the type of equipment we use.
