Question. Why hire a professional when I can do it myself?

A. No two carpets are the same when soiled. A professional has the knowledge, training, expertise, and equipment needed for each situation. They will determine the correct procedure and technique for many carpets and upholstery fabric care and complete the task professionally and efficiently.

Most rental machines are unable to provide the superior cleaning you will get from professional equipment. They cannot reach the required high temperature or vacuum strength, and the cleaning product will either be inferior or unable to perform as needed with these machines. Additionally, excess moisture and soap residues remain in the carpet, leading to problems such as bacteria, microbes, and mould growth. Professional cleaning removes the residues, and your carpet dries very quickly.
