Even if you have a clean and tidy household your carpet can still be susceptible to stains. You might be the most fastidious cleaner in the world but over time the surface of your carpet will accumulate stains and marks which can’t be removed by vacuuming. The thing to do here is clean your carpet.

Many hire shops now let you rent a carpet cleaner for a day or so to clean your own carpet, however we would advise against this. People think that professional carpet cleaning is expensive but it’s really not and hiring your own DIY cleaner can actually cost more than having the carpet cleaned professionally. By the time you’ve paid for the cleaning machine’s rental and paid for cleaning fluid you’d be surprised to find that professional cleaning is only fractionally more expensive. And professional carpet cleaning companies use all the latest equipment and up-to-the-minute carpet cleaning gadgets meaning that the carpet will be cleaned properly and professionally.

Small home carpet cleaning machines also don’t get rid of the dirt to the same degree as the industrial machines which the professionals use. And can actually cause more harm than good.

So if you are thinking of having your carpet cleaned it’s worth having it done professionally, you won’t be disappointed with the results.
