Carpet Cleaning with Do-It-Yourself Rental Machines

Carpet Cleaning with Do-It-Yourself Rental Machines

Here’s misconception #4 – I can do just as good a job cleaning my carpet myself with one of those do-it-yourself rental machines.

Wrong. You see, the problem with the machines that you can rent at the local supermarket or hardware store is that they don’t get the water hot enough to truly get your carpet deeply cleaned, and they don’t have the suction power to remove the dirt and grime fully from your carpet. A rental machine costs roughly $300.

A professional portable machine costs at least $1,200, and most cleaners typically spend nearly $18,000 for a professional truck mount unit. Which of these systems do you think does a better job? The other question to ask yourself is “How much is my time worth?” Do you really want to try and save a few dollars by going out renting equipment, learning how to use it, doing the actual work, then cleaning up and taking the equipment back?  Is it really worth it?
