carpet cleaning

Do I really need professional carpet cleaners?

At our Dragon Scale Flooring showroom in Laurel, MD, we’re frequently asked about the necessity of professional carpet cleaning. More often than not, homeowners want to know the truth about cleaning their carpets and whether or not they can do it themselves. Honestly, while it may not look that hard to do over the weekend, the fact is, carpet cleaning requires a lot of skill and professional equipment to avoid damage. Still not convinced? Then read through the following 4 reasons why you shouldn’t skip working with the experts.
1. Skill
As experts in the industry, the pros have the knowledge, training, and skill to understand and identify what needs to be done to return your carpet to its original state. Deep stains may only come out with professional-grade products, the stuff you can’t buy at the grocery store. As well, experts can easily identify the type of fibers you have, and know very well how to treat them effectively and efficiently.
2. Advanced techniques
Think you can get that stain out with just soapy water, a brush, and some can-do attitude? Well, that may not be enough, and in the end, you may do more damage than good. Professional carpet cleaners, however, have the eco-friendly products, equipment, and tools for the task to ensure your fibers are treated correctly.
3. Perfect from the get-go
In the vast majority of cases, the pros get called in after a failed attempt by a homeowner to clean their own carpets. Well, why not bypass this tedious step, and call the experts to begin with? By opting for the pros from the get-go, you will end up saving yourself a lot of headaches and money.
4. Avoid (irreversible) damage
What happens when you take on a task that you’re not entirely familiar with? Potentially, lots of things can happen, most of which fall into the disastrous category. Simply put, if you don’t clean or dry your carpets properly, you can end up unknowingly creating a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and spores. Talk about a health catastrophe! But, that’s not all, you can end up causing so much damage that you need to replace your entire installation. Obviously, that’s not something you’d want to happen, right?
