Why to use a professional carpet cleaner vs a store rented carpet cleaner

8/7/2018 (Permalink)

Cleaning Why to use a professional carpet cleaner vs a store rented carpet cleaner Most common carpet machine found at a store.

There are several companies that offer rental carpet cleaners at the local grocery or home improvement store. Some of these are well known and others not as well known. The problem is that the machines use very small vacuum motors compared to the vacuum blower in a professional truck mounted unit. The small motors do not provide enough lift and suction to get an acceptable amount of soil and water out of the carpet. The carpet comes out stiff, crunchy and streaky.

The carpet also stays wetter and for a longer period of time. Much of the soap stays in the carpet which causes the carpet to re-soil rapidly. From a hygiene standpoint we need to analyze how these machines get used. Many times the rental machines are used to clean apartments which are quite often dirtier than other homes. The machines are used to clean severe pet urine contamination or pet diarrhea, overflowing toilets, sewage backup and even messes involving blood.

See the story about blood dripping from a rental machine by clicking here.

Also what did that rental machine pickup? Could it have picked up, bedbugs, fleas, dust mites, or roach eggs that might fall out onto the next person’s carpet?

At this point I would wonder if the machine was properly cleaned and sanitized before it was rented out again. Was it just rinsed or wiped off or cleaned at all? I would never feel comfortable bringing a rental carpet cleaning unit into my home. Is the potential savings worth risking damage to my expensive carpet or putting my family’s health at risk? Additionally if you take into account the time to pick up and drop off the machine, the cleaning chemicals and your cleaning time; I think you will discover that having a professional clean your carpet will be close to the same cost and less time consuming.

At SERVPRO of Salem County, we clean and disinfect the equipment after each job to ensure we are not carrying someone else’s filth into your home. Plus we guarantee our work.

So call around , ask some questions, get some quotes, read the companies reviews and have a safer, cleaner home by hiring a trained and certified professional carpet cleaner.
