That’s because they’re getting the right carpet cleaner, and that’s at Gary’s Floors in Tracy, CA.
It’s easy to think you can do it yourself; after all, those rental steam machines are everywhere, even in supermarkets. It might also be tempting to go with the cheapest, but that’s a mistake. The quality will suffer, the machinery will possibly be inferior and, worse yet, you’ll get someone so inexperienced that your home will soon become a learning experiment.
1. There will be damage to your rug. It’s not a one-size-fits-all type of thing. Every stain is different and every fiber is different. If you use the wrong detergent, not only will it not clean, but it could actually harm the fibers, and you’ll end up spending money on a replacement.
Your floor won’t be the only thing that sees damage. Furniture can get ruined and things dropped, misplaced and scratched, if your workers are careless.
2. Your house can be taken over by mold and mildew. When carpets are steamed, water soaks all the way through to the padding. It doesn’t take mold long to start growing; 12 hours is all it needs. Once mold and mildew grow, you have a smell you’ll never be able to get rid of, and it can wreak havoc with all of your house, walls, ceiling, and floors.
The professionals have high-powered fans, and they’ll get it all dry long before mold and mildew can even “think” to start growing.
3. Your carpet will constantly look old, dirty and worn. Ignore it and stains will set. Sand is sharp, and can actually cause tears in the fibers. Dirt will cause the fibers to become matted down, so you’ll lose plushness. All of that, and you will think it’s time for a replacement, and that is needless expense!
4. You’ll pay for mistakes, even those not caused by you. Most warranties state that carpets should be professionally cleaned at various intervals. If you don’t comply, the warranty will be considered invalid, and you won’t get compensated for any damages.
