If you have ever tried to clean the carpeting in your home by yourself, then you already know what a chore and what type of problems could result. What winds up happening is that you had some great intentions of making your carpeting look like new again, but those expectations fell short and your carpeting is now soggy, dirtier, and your home is starting to smell moldy after using that rental carpet cleaning machine. Carpet cleaning is something that should certainly be left to the professionals.
Here are just some of the reasons to choose a local professional carpet cleaning company if you want to make your flooring look like new again.
Quality Professional Grade Equipment
DIY carpet cleaning is not an easy task if you haven’t tried to do this before. First, you have to drive to the store to rent the bulky cleaning equipment and get it in your vehicle and unloaded at the house. These machines have been used in a dozen houses this week already, are cumbersome to operate, and usually leave more water on the flooring than vacuumed up. A professional carpet cleaning company has high-powered trunk-mounted equipment that runs outside while the only part in your home is the hoses and attachments. Technicians treat the flooring first, then uses scrubbers to loosen debris trapped in the carpet fibers, and then before the solution can get to the padding, industrial vacuums suck up that dirty water. Large fans are used to ensure the rooms are dry to the touch before the team leaves the home.
Cleaning Every Inch of Flooring
If you were to try and clean the carpeting in your home by yourself, be prepared for a challenge to say the least. First, you move all the furniture out of the room, clean the flooring, then because it can’t dry because you used too much water, you can’t return the furniture and get started on the next room. The expert carpet cleaning team work effectively together by moving all the furniture, cleaning every inch of flooring, drying the surface, moving back the furniture, going to the next room. In the time it would take for you to do one room, the experts are done in your home with all the rooms and they look and smell spectacular.
Removing Every Drop of Dirty Water
That carpet cleaning machine that you rented from the home center has been used a hundred times this year already, and it barely can disperse water let along suck it all up. This one machine has to clean and vacuum, so quality definitely suffers compared to the huge machines that are used by the carpet cleaning teams for specific jobs. Those rental machines have weak suction power, so you drench the flooring with water, then can barely get 50 percent of it back into the machine. Now you have dirty water soaking through to the padding, creating the ideal conditions for mold growth. High-powered vacuums used by the professionals remove water and debris before it gets to the padding, leaving the flooring almost dry to the touch.
Sparking Clean and Dry Carpeting
When you rent a carpet cleaning machine for the weekend, that machine allows water to soak the flooring, it barely sucks up the water, and you’re left with soggy and damp flooring. The professional carpet cleaners leave that carpeting as dry as possible down to the padding. Then those industrial strength air movers are brought in to dry the surface to the touch and prepare the carpeting for additional treatment. Unlike when you do it yourself, the carpet cleaning team can apply a protective solution to the surface of the carpeting that will help keep spills from getting down to the padding. The coating allows you time to get the spill cleaned up before it gets into the carpet fibers, helping to keep the carpeting looking like new longer and even help with reducing the appearance of heavy traffic areas too.The team at Pro Green Carpet are not only experts when it comes to restoring the flooring, we can help you with pressure washing the exterior of your home, upholstery cleaning, and restoring the original look to your tile and grout throughout the house.
