How Do You Clean Carpet?

Do you know the fabric in your carpet or upholstery acts as a filter for dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt, grease, and grime? The question is how do you get rid of all the monsters in your carpet? There are two common ways people choose to go which is cleaning it themselves or hiring a professional carpet cleaning company.


Getting your carpet or upholstery cleaned should not be a burden! It’s not bad to have a shampooer around to hit quick spots that get onto the carpet, so when should you call the professionals? Let’s see the advantages and disadvantages of using Shark, Bissell, Rug Doctor, Hoover and many other shampooers versus using a Truckmounted machine.



  1. Affordable
Many people get Shampooers because they are affordable and they can clean their carpet at their own expense.  
  1. Spotting
It’s great to use a shampooer but make sure you use the correct steps along with product when cleaning a spot.  
  1. Convenient
We live in a DIY society; so many of us like to clean at our own expense!  


  1. Drying Time
The drying time when shampooing carpets is a little longer then a professional because we are trained on cleaning your carpets correctly. If it’s over wet other problems such as mold growth can occur.  
  1. Knowledge
Professional carpet cleaners will usually take classes to become certified to clean carpet. This way they can be knowledgeable on what chemistry to use to extend the life of your carpet and protect the ones you love. Learning ph levels along with determining what’s best for your carpet and upholstery should be a carpet cleaner’s focus.  
  1. Heat
Usually when renting or buying a carpet shampooing machine the hottest water you can get is from your faucet. Truckmounted machines are equipped to heat the water up to 200+ degrees Fahrenheit, and hot water is a huge component to getting carpet cleaned.


Would you prefer to wash and dry clothes for a family of five by hand or using a washing machine and a dryer? The obvious answer is using a washer and a dryer! Don’t get me wrong you can get similar results washing them by hand but it’s going to take longer and require much more manual labor on your end. The same holds true for carpet cleaning. Yes, you can use a portable shampooing machine with limited knowledge to clean your carpet, but a professional will have the tools, knowledge, and enthusiasm to clean your carpet.
