DIY carpet cleaning can save you a good amount of cash vs hiring a professional in Greenport, New York. But is it worth the risk? Read below to find out.
We can’t recommend you hire a machine form the store for DIY cleaning. It’s to risking and there is really no question about it.
The reality is that after 20 or so years in the carpet cleaning business we have seen our fair share of damaged carpets through botched DIY jobs. We have seen it all, from a carpet that has been ripped apart, to the wrong cleaning chemicals used that have caused horrible discoloration.
Even if you don’t call us today and you think our stance on DIY work is too harsh then we don’t mind. If you take your business elsewhere but drop the DIY idea then our job is done. That was the intention today. To save you from what could be an accident that can cost thousands of dollars.
The real issue if we dive deeper is that each carpet is different. So is each stain. So treating your carpet as a one-stop shop buffet that serves nothing but average food in mass (the DIY machine) is the polar opposite way you should be going about things. You should be eating at a restaurant that serves just the food you’re looking for such as an award-winning Italian restaurant is you want pizza (the comparison for the professional service provider).
On occasion, and have to laugh, as we get a customer calling us and explaining they want a professional service. And they ask very particular questions like what machines we use and so on.
Most of the time, this is due to the fact that we are the second company they have called. The first was a booking they made and some random person impersonated being a highly experienced carpet cleaning professional. But showed up in an unmarked car (no company branding) and a rug doctor.
Like we said before, we can only laugh, as we side with these customers. We know why they never let the person clean their carpets and we are more than happy to answer all their questions when they call us with a bit of skepticism. Which is always dissolved by the time we are done talking and get them booked in.
To wrap this up. Take this perspective and answer the following question. Be honest…
Are you a professional with years of experience in cleaning carpets?
Yes: Well, you’d never use a cheap DIY machine and you know it!
No: Then it’s time to hire the professionals.
