Why should I pay a company to get my carpets cleaned?

Here at ServiceMaster Clean, we often get asked why should I pay a company to clean my carpets if I can hire or just buy a machine myself?

Hiring a machine from your local supermarket or DIY store is always an option, but then so is fixing your own car with just a spanner! With a hired machine, you get what you pay for. These machines are designed to remove surface level dirt and they do a great job at putting water and detergent down, but not a great job at removing it. If you use too much shampoo, the machines are not powerful enough to remove the water and detergent, leaving your carpets wet with a residue for up to and over 24 hours.

With a professional carpet cleaner like ServiceMaster Clean, your carpets are in the hands of a professional; with £20,000+ worth of carpet cleaning machinery, professional products and years’ of experience. They even clean furniture and upholstery too! Your carpets will be clean and dry within a couple of hours so your home will be back to normal in no time.

The secret to professional carpet cleaning is the hot water extraction system. Our specialist equipment removes dirt, shampoo residue and water from carpets so they stay cleaner for longer.

It’s not really that fair to compare a hired machine and a professional company; it’s apples and oranges. Experience, knowledge, equipment and effort – a company will move all of your furniture out of the way so you don’t have to – you get what you pay for! ServiceMaster Clean can apply a special fabric protector, giving fantastic resistance to spills, making them easy to mop up if cleaned away quickly. The fabric protector also contains a unique anti-bacterial additive which kills many viruses and bacteria.

We recommend a professional clean of your carpets every six to twelve months to keep them free of dirt, looking fresh and to extend their usage. You’ve already made the investment by purchasing your carpets, so why not look after them and ensure they can go the distance?

After all, would you try and fix your own car with a spanner? No. Nor us – we can’t fix cars, but we’re great at cleaning carpets!
