There’s no way to escape the fact that your carpets need to be deep cleaned regularly. While you don’t have a choice in this matter, you do have a choice in how they are cleaned. Many homeowners struggle with the decision to invest in professional carpet cleaning or try to manage this task on their own by renting a carpet cleaning machine.

If you’re currently weighing the pros and cons of these two options, here are some important and often overlooked factors you may want to consider.

The Value of Your Carpet

As an investment in your home, your carpet requires careful maintenance to preserve its value long-term. Unfortunately, you can’t count on a rental machine to provide the level of care your carpet needs and deserves.

Rental machines can rarely remove the most common stains and odors that plague carpets. This means you may be dealing with the same annoyances even after you’ve put in the time and effort of DIY cleaning your carpet. This is especially true if you’re dealing with a pet accident and related stubborn odors.

In contrast, when you work with a professional carpet cleaning team, you can have confidence your carpets are being treated with the attention and expertise needed to promote their longevity. For example, our HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction) process is powerful enough to lift up deep-set dirt and soil in a way that rental machines simply can’t match. Moreover, our team is well-versed in removing the evidence of pet accidents using our P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Odor Removal) treatment.

The Difference Professional Carpet Cleaning can Make

We’ve heard homeowners claim that their carpets aren’t “fancy” enough to warrant professional carpet cleaning, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! If you’ve used a rental machine in the past, you may not have been all that impressed with the outcome, blaming the quality of your carpets rather than putting the blame where it belongs: on the machine.

Having your carpets cleaned by professionals can restore their beauty and plush texture while invigorating your home with a fresh feeling. You’ll be more likely to take pride in your carpets once our technicians have revealed their true potential, allowing you to find a greater sense of joy and satisfaction in maintaining a cleaner, healthier home.

The Value of Your Time

When you look at the cost of a rental machine versus the cost of professional carpet cleaning, you may think that going DIY carpet cleaning is the obvious choice. However, there’s one variable you may not be included in this calculation: your limited free time.

Not only do you need to think about the time you’ll actually spend cleaning your carpet, but you should also add in the time of driving the machine to and from the pick-up location and learning how to use it. Additionally, consider the time your family will have to spend tiptoeing around your home as your carpets dry. Carpets cleaned by Johnson County Chem-Dry® professionals will dry in hours, while those that are cleaned with a rental machine could take days to finally be usable.
