When it comes to DIY VS Professional Carpet Cleaning, Carpet Cleaners Virginia Beach highly recommend having a professional come to do it. There are too many variables with DIY machines. The temperature of the water, the amount of cleaner to add, the exact method of use, these all present opportunities for things to go wrong.
Doing it Yourself requires the research to get the right equipment and products for your particular carpets and upholstery that will not damage the fibers or cause any types of discoloration. Then begins the painful process of reading instructions and figuring out how to work the machine. Then, adding the correct amount of chemicals to the machine so you can start attempting to clean the carpet. Very small amounts of dirt might not be any problem, but high traffic areas and stains are no match to any portable carpet cleaning products.
Generally, DIY machines do not heat the water to the same high temperature as professional truck mounted machines, which will result in less effective cleaning. In addition, these machines are not as powerful, which means that they are not able to extract as much of the water (and therefore dirt) from the carpet. When properly done, carpet should be only slightly damp after it has been thoroughly cleaned. Wet carpet indicates that the machine was not powerful enough to do the job effectively.
Also, the vacuum pressure of a portable machine does not have the power to suck up dirt from anything more than the surface area of a carpet. It may look like your carpets are being cleaned with the portable machine, but looks can be very deceiving. A portable machine will not go beyond soaking the carpets and drying them out. What happens as a result is a carpet will look clean for a few days, but then the stains will begin to form again as the dirt from the padding starts to pull back up. This results in the cheaper option of a portable machine becoming more expensive due to the fact that you have to do this process repeatedly over and over again. A truck mounted machine, however, can suck up dirt and stains from even in the padding of the carpet, leaving a completely spotless, dirt free environment that will remain in this condition.
Another thing to remember is that the chemicals used to professionally clean your carpet are a much better grade than the store bought cleaners. Store bought cleaners are basically diluted versions of the professional grade carpet cleaners. Using industrial strength cleaners are strictly used by professional Carpet Cleaners Virginia Beach ,because there are very specific applications and instructions which will ensure cleanliness without causing any permanent damage or stains. It is not a very known fact, but putting the wrong chemicals on certain stains can actually cause a stain to settle into the carpet fibers making it impossible to remove even after hiring a professional crew, so keep that in mind before you even consider the DIY options. Professional companies will still remove these stains as well, but it will require them to cut out sections of the carpet and padding, and replace as necessary, almost doubling the cost of the project had you just hired them in the first place.
