Why You Should Hire a Professional for Carpet Cleaning


Many people use carpets in their homes in Orlando to either safeguard their flooring or to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the room. Over time, due to usage, these rugs become dirty and in need of cleaning. At such a time, homeowners must decide whether to clean the carpet by themselves or hire a professional carpet cleaner. While a DIY carpet cleaning might seem appealing, hiring a professional to wash the carpet is often the best option. The following are valid reasons why you should hire a professional carpet cleaner.

It saves times

Cleaning the carpet in your Orlando property evidently takes time. You need to gather all the necessary cleaning materials and equipment, as well as put other activities on hold. In contrast, if you let a professional do the job, they have the right set of skills and resources to get the work done quickly and efficiently. Thereby freeing up your time and enabling you to spend your time on more important activities or relaxing with friends and family.

They have experience

One thing about professional carpet cleaners in Orlando is that they have to undergo training before they can operate. Hence, they have the right sets of skills and experience to handle any challenge related to carpet cleaning. Furthermore, they know the right techniques and cleaning agents for removing different types of stains or spills. Which means you’re certain to have your carpet looking good as new. On the other hand if you opt for a DIY cleaning, in the event you encounter a stubborn stain, high chances are you will have a tough time removing it from your carpet and could possibly damage your carpet while trying to do so.

They have the right cleaning equipment

The good thing about professional carpet cleaners is that they come with an adequate supply of the right cleaning tools, equipment, and agents. Besides, they know how to operate and maintain different cleaning equipment such as the professional grade machines, as well as how to handle industrial chemicals. When you hire a cleaning company, you don’t have to fret over whether the cleaner will have the right resources to get the job done. On the other hand, for you to clean the carpet on your own, you need to purchase the right cleaning agents, hire equipment and learn how to use them.

Improves the health of your home

What most people don’t realize is that carpets acts as a filter for your indoor environment.  Through improper cleaning by those who don’t know how to clean carpets properly or who poses as a professional carpet cleaner, your carpets will no longer be a health benefit.  The underside of the carpet (pad) becomes a breeding place for bacteria, mold, and allergens. These organisms are dangerous and expose family members, more so, those that suffer from respiratory health conditions to considerable risk. Many owners are not cognizant of this fact, and that is why they only focus on using vacuum cleaning equipment, most of which do not even stand a chance against mold or bacteria. When you enlist a professional cleaning company, they will first loosen the contaminants beneath the carpet using cleaning solutions. After which, they will use high-power scrubbers to remove the contaminants from your home in Orlando, making it safe for the occupants.

Prolongs your carpet’s life

When you clean the carpet by yourself, it is very likely that your primary goal will be to get over and done with the chore. As a result, there is a good chance you will not be thorough. Moreover, if you come across a stubborn stain you might use aggressive detergents, which will either worsen the stain or damage the fabric. The objective of a professional carpet cleaner will be to carry out a perfect carpet cleaning exercise.

Hence, the company will use the right cleaning agents, equipment, and techniques to execute a thorough cleaning task. In fact, most reliable professional carpet cleaners in Orlando will even go a step further and apply a protective coating over the carpet after cleaning it. All these activities will help prolong the life of your carpet.

It is cost effective

Even though hiring a professional carpet cleaning company will cost you money, the aesthetic, health, social and financial benefits it offers are worth the expense. Besides, carrying out a DIY carpet cleaning exercise requires much more time and effort. For instance, you have to forego every other activity to concentrate on the job. In addition, you have to purchase the right cleaning agents and hire equipment. Not to mention that you also need to know how to operate the equipment or else you might end up ruining your carpet, damaging the cleaning equipment or worse, exposing yourself to harmful industrial chemicals. With a professional cleaning company however, all you need to do is identify a competent Orlando carpet cleaner and the rest will be taken care of.

Three Super Important Things About Carpet Cleaning

As in really important. These are true facts that can help you maintain your carpet, keep your family safe from disease, and prevent the economy from crashing. Well, maybe not that last one, but they’re still important.

1. Warning Labels: Whenever you’re using any sort of carpet cleaning chemical or detergent, read the label. Allchemical_bottle of it. Even the part about the recycling deposit for the states you don’t live in. Plenty of household cleaning supplies can do some pretty nasty stuff to a human body, you want to make sure you’re not leaving these materials behind when kids or pets play on your carpet. Nearly all carpet cleaning chemicals talk about rinsing afterwards to prevent residue, and that’s no joke. Residue can be toxic, can attract dust, and can even bleach carpet if left on there for too long. While drinking a bottle of the safest soap in the world will probably still give you a stomach ache and make your next trip to the bathroom more eventful than you’d like, some of it will just kill you. A lot of cleaners are the true definition of toxic, so read your labels.

2. Don’t Let it Get Bad: How do you disinfect something? Usually, you either soak it in a disinfectant for an hour or so, or you boil it for half that length. Can you do either of these things to carpet? If090528g you expose carpet to temperatures of 160 F or higher (71 c for you metric types) you begin degrading the stain resistance. Water boils at 212 F. Do the math. On top of that, good luck getting water out of your carpet pad be-451″ />starts growing. This means you really need to stay on top of keeping your carpet clean, don’t allow it to get bad to begin with. Normal vacuuming helps tremendously, as does taking care of biological stains as soon as they happen. When I say biological, I include drink and food spills in that category. If you have a cup of apple juice on your counter for a month, it starts to rot and grow bacteria. The same thing happens in your carpet.

3. Professional Cleaning: Hard truth time; no matter how often or well you clean your carpets, you probably don’t have the materials or equipment really needed to get all the dirt up. That’s fine, the stuff you buy in stores is really designed for maintenance rather than restoration. You can extend the time between professional cleanings by keeping your house clean, but eventually you need that heavy duty equipment to get the job done. agent on carpetWhen you hire a cleaner, make sure the technicians that come into your home are trade certified, and that the company is properly licensed, and insured. Remember that part about temperatures of 160 F damaging your carpet? And that part about rinsing and removing residues that can make your carpet dirtier faster and possibly contain some horrible stuff? Those of us who have that trade certification possess the knowledge and skills to keep your carpet from being damaged and keep it safe.

Knowledge is power, and now you have a little more. Carpet is serious business.

It’s been a wonderful year for InstaDRY, but we couldn’t have done it without you. As we enter into the Christmas season once again, we are currently running a special for you and your friends called “Keep The Memories, Not The Stains!”  Since the Holiday Season is filled with a lot of fun and joy, it is also filled with a lot of mess.  Everyone is currently working hard to make the Holidays a perfect season this year.  That is why any carpet cleaning booked for the month of December, we will provide a “voucher” for a free touch up in January.

We started this special for the 2012 Holiday Season because we found many people weren’t sure what makes more sense… Get the carpets cleaned before the Holidays or after.  We all realized, why not give everyone the best of both worlds and clean the carpets before the Holiday Festivities begin and give them a free touch up in January as a Holiday Special.  This was an uncommon special that everyone seem to really enjoy and excited we are doing this again.  We hope that you can take advantage of this little special and tell your friends.

If we don’t get to hear from you before then, then please have a fun & safe Holiday Season and may the new year bring more joy and success than the previous!
