4 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Hire A Carpet Cleaning Machine!
So you have a dirty carpet or you're thinking of hiring a carpet cleaner ? As renting carpet cleaning machines becomes ever more popular, here are 4 reasons why you shouldn't hire a carpet cleaning machine, and while I may be bias owning a carpet cleaning company, I think after reading this post at least one or two reasons will make you agree with me, so lets start with the first reason on our list.
" The dog has had an accident! " This is the point most pet owners contemplate hiring a carpet cleaning machine, and with most houses having cream carpets laid ( the mind boggles ) said pet stain is ever more present, and if left uncleaned will not only darken in colour and become even more obvious but also start to smell too, oh the joys of having a pet haha!
So off to the supermarket you go to hire your carpet cleaning machine for the next 24 hours, and this is where " time " comes into play. You have already had to take time out to pick it up, use your petrol or diesel to get there, then you have had to drive it home, set it up and then spend one, maybe two or more hours cleaning the carpet or removing the stain, only to have to dispose of all the waste water and then fit it into the car and drive it all the way back to the supermarket or wherever you hired it from.
All in all you have probably spent a good 3-4 hours from start to finish, and on hiring the machine and the chemicals, not including fuel forked out around £35-£40, time aside, the cost of a carpet cleaner to come directly to you will cost less, so why did you hire a machine? Time is important, don't waste it cleaning a carpet and running the risks I will go over next, hire a professional.
