There is a common belief, a misconception really, that hiring professionals for carpet cleaning is both inconvenient and costly. You can do it yourself. Just go out and hire a steam cleaner and browse through the local hardware store and buy a few stain removal products.
To be able to do a fair comparison between DIY and using professional cleaners we really need to look at the differences between the two actual processes used to clean the carpets so as we can draw a fairer conclusion.
DIY Carpet Cleaning
Some of the activities involved in typical DIY cleaning are:
- Vacuuming the carpet regularly
- removing carpet stains by applying specific products you found in a store or researched online or were advised to use by friends and neighbours
- hire or purchase equipment to clean your carpets
