Cleaning the carpets in your home is not always the first thing anyone wants to have on their to-do list. It ranks right up there with rain gutter cleaning. But if you have carpeting in your home, you will have to clean it at some point. So, what are your options in home carpet cleaning? Here’s a quick look.
1. Professional Carpet Cleaning Company – Your first option is hiring the pros to come out and commercially clean your carpets. The advantages are that it is easy (you don’t have to do anything) and you will have very clean carpets afterward.
The downside is that it can get very expensive. A 2500 square foot home can easily run $500 or more to clean. The other thing is that you will need to be home at the time of cleaning, which can often be an inconvenience.
2. Rent A Carpet Cleaning Machine – You see these carpet cleaning machines in grocery stores and other stores through out the country. Rug Doctor is a huge player in the rental industry.
You rent the machine for so many hours, or the day, buy the carpet shampoo and stain remover, and clean your carpets.
The advantage here is that you are getting a commercial grade-cleaning machine to use. These machines will do a great job of getting the dirt, stains and grime out of your carpeting.
The downside here is the cost, time and fact that you will constantly need to be renting the machine over the years.
3. Buy A Carpet Cleaning Machine – This option is often your best one. Home carpet cleaners are not too expensive, easy to use, and do an overall good job in cleaning your home’s carpets.
The other factor is that you can use them when it’s convenient for you. There is no appointment times to keep or rental times to follow.
The key here is to find the best type of home carpet cleaning machine for your particular needs.
