Professional Residential Carpet Cleaning Versus Do-It-Yourself Carpet Cleaning

Does it really matter if you invest in a professional residential carpet cleaning service or just try to do it yourself?

Many people try to save money with do-it-yourself carpet cleaning techniques. Even though you may be able to save a little money, the do-it-yourself techniques are never as effective, and they involve a lot of time and hard work from the homeowner.

Why not let the trained technicians at ServiceMaster Commercial and Residential Solutions in Lake City, MN, use their top-of-the-line products and equipment to get your carpets clean as quickly as possible?

Many people may fall victim to common do-it-yourself mistakes regarding carpet cleaning:

  • Over-shampooing can occur when too much shampoo is used or the carpet is not properly rinsed. Also, using too much shampoo can cause the carpet to attract dirt -it becomes a dirt magnet!
  • Over-wetting happens when too much water soaks into the bottom of the carpet. The backing of the carpet can become wet enough to cause serious mold and mildew problems. ServiceMaster technicians in Lake City, MN, will never face the problem of over-wetting the carpet. We utilize the hot-steam extraction method which uses very little water, and allows the carpet to dry quickly.
  • Failing to protect the wet carpet from furniture occurs because do-it–yourselfers don‘t always have the proper products to protect the carpet, such as foam blocks to keep the furniture off the wet floor. Also, many people do not remove all of the furniture from the room when cleaning. Wood furniture can leave stains from dyes, and metal furniture can leave rust stains on the wet carpet.

At ServiceMaster Commercial and Residential Solutions, the experienced technicians know the proper carpet cleaning techniques to use in every situation. We provide services that are top notch and very personal to meet your needs, as well as products, techniques, and equipment that offer the highest quality residential carpet cleaning.
