DIY or Professional Carpet Cleaning.

Which is the better option? DIY or Professional Carpet Cleaning

What feels better than resting your feet on freshly cleaned carpet? Carpets need to be cleaned to remove odors, dirt, and stains. Cleaning is also essential if you want to extend the life of a carpet. Carpet cleaning may be a daunting task if you don’t know how to go about it. There are two ways of cleaning your carpet, you either do it yourself or seek professional services. Both methods have pros and cons. Let’s discuss the two methods and hopefully you will be able to decide accordingly.

DIY carpet cleaning

DIY carpet cleaning

This is a great method when you only want to clean the surface of the carpet. You do not need to hire professionals to carry out regular vacuuming. Since the equipment is easy to operate, it is a simple method for removing stains. It is a convenient method because you can clean whenever you are free. Additionally, you it is not expensive because you use resources that are readily available at home.

The downside of this method is that it does not clean beyond the surface. Only the visible portion is cleaned. Bacteria and other microorganisms may hide underneath. Another setback is that you may use inappropriate cleaning methods that may damage the carpet.

Professional carpet cleaning

Professional carpet cleaning

Reputable cleaning companies have high quality equipment and qualified personnel for the job. Professionals will ensure that the carpet is well cleaned both on the surface and inside. Powerful equipment are also used which can remove stains that you cannot get rid of when you do it yourself. If cleaning carpets drives you nuts, this is the best option for you. The only downside of this method is the higher cost.

DIY carpet cleaning saves you money but it may not be a suitable method to use all year long due to accumulated dirt and microorganisms underneath your carpet. On the other hand, professional carpet cleaning might be expensive when done regularly but you can be sure of excellent results.

    I'm updating my previous review since Canada Clean Home came back yesterday to see and correct the cleaning they have done before. That is profession. Thank you!Previous:Hired this company to clean my carpet and paid what they asked for. They told me to see it on the next day. Very poor cleaning. They don't do details on corners and spots that are not convenient for them... I'm redoing my it now.

    Great service, very professional and punctual. Understand their cost structure prior to booking - count the number of rooms, number and sizes of closets, landing sizes, number of steps. Alex did a count and showed me the price breakdown and we agreed prior to the work being performed. Carpets look brand new, very pleased with the results.

    Setting up the appointment was quick and easy. They work over Saturdays which is definitely a plus. Ivan showed up and he was very friendly. He clearly explained to me the cost structure and provided options. He did a thorough job in terms of cleaning and took extra care of the stained spots on the carpet. I am impressed with how much cleaner the carpet looks afterwards. I will for sure use their service again in the future.

    As per usual check out requirements for an apartment I had to hire a professional steam cleaners. When I booked my appointment I guess they missed that my unit was on the third floor and the building has no elevators, I was informed that they do not go up past the 2nd floor unless there is an elevator but the technician assigned to my inquiry was accommodating and proceeded with the clean regardless! Excellent job done and helped with me being able to get my full damage deposit back.More importantly I want to make it clear that the main reason for my 5 stars, (and why I'll use Canada Clean Home again when I need them) is because of the technician that went above and beyond and I regret not getting his name.Invoice # 20200630-3342

    Canada Clean home is a great cleaning company to book for your furniture and carpet cleaning needs. My carpet and stairs look amazing and clean. They offer additional products such as protector and deodorizer. Thanks to technicians Ivan and Alex, they do great job at providing professional cleaning services as well as being friendly, polite and wear clean uniforms. I will definitely book them again

    Did a good job, punctual and reliable.But beware of upsell when they arrive. Also spring deodorizer and scotch guard upcharge , instead of having it as an added option on their quote.

    I needed my couch steam cleaned and they came on time for their appointment. They outlined what they would do to clean the couch as well as offered a few extra services, I took them up on some but not others and felt no pressure whatsoever to add on any other features. They were professional and quick and did an amazing job.

    This is the first time we had the carpet cleaned in our rental condo and the service from Alex was exceptional! He arrived on time, very professional and polite. He explained the procedure, and proceeded to work a cleaning miracle. Even though the carpet was older it regained it's original color and loft. We were very satisfied with a job well done.Would absolutely recommend "Canada Clean Home"!

    AMAZING RESULTS!! Moving out and didn't want to tackle this big job myself. My rental had old carpets and lots of stains from our 6 kids! I was sceptical if they would even come out but Canada Clean Home is my new best friend, for real! And when you add up the cost to rent a steam cleaner, Google and make "magic" stain removers and do it yourself all costs more time and more money than these amazing guys prices. Only took an hour and a half for 4 bdrms, living room and 3 sets of stairs! Thanks a ton Canada Clean!

    Alex came and cleaned my carpets. He introduced himself on arrival and was here on time. Very professional. He did an excellent job. My carpets were cleaned to my satisfaction. He explained everything and if he had suggestions he told me. By no means did he put any pressure on me to add anything extra, it was entirely up to me. The price was as quoted. I would recommend their services to anyone. Excellent! A job well done and very reasonably price.
