Why Carpet Cleaning Should Be Completed By Professionals
Carpet cleaning is not something you can pick up and excel at from your first attempt. Even if you hire a professional-grade machine to take on the task, being able to get the best out of it and fully utilise its capabilities comes with experience. Professional commercial cleaners not only know which techniques to employ for certain types of stains, but they know which products to use. Using the wrong products for the situation can just exacerbate the problem.
If you have cheap carpets that you’re not too fussed about, cleaning them yourself may be worth a shot. In reality though, carpets for many people represent a considerable investment – especially if you operate a prestigious hotel or establishment. Not only will you likely have high-quality, expensive carpets installed, but their appearance will make a big difference to the first impressions of guests. Ensuring they look their best at all times is key, and if you use the incorrect chemicals or methods, you could seriously damage your valuable carpets.
Here are five reasons why carpet cleaning should be completed by professionals – especially in a commercial setting.
1. You’re protecting your investment
Good-quality carpets aren’t cheap, especially when they’re laid over a large area. Do you really want to risk having to replace your carpet? Cleaning it yourself may seem like a money-saving exercise to begin with, but if it goes wrong, and you make a stain worse, you may end up regretting your decision big time.
2. It makes financial sense
Commercial carpet cleaning services will naturally cost more up front than if you were to do it yourself, but consider the fact that professionals will only use the products that are needed – and will deliver consistent results, time after time. By doing it yourself, you may end up wasting products (and wasting time) but not actually achieving anything. If you hire a professional, you know how much it’s going to cost beforehand, and you won’t have to incur equipment maintenance costs either.
3. It keeps your guests happy
If you operate a high-quality venue, customers will expect high-quality carpets and furnishings – it’s that simple. Failing to maintain your carpets properly can result in unwelcome odours, not to mention unsightly stains and marks. A professional will be able to handle all of this for you, ensuring that your guests get the right first impression.
4. It’s less stressful
If you’re inexperienced, cleaning an expensive carpet can be extremely stressful. Hiring a professional removes this burden; here at Donau, we’ve been cleaning carpets for over five decades and have yet to encounter a stain we couldn’t remove. Knowing that you have experts on the case should put your mind at ease, especially when they’re fully insured.
5. It saves valuable time
Achieving perfect results takes time – and it’ll take you a lot longer if you’re having to learn the ins and outs of carpet cleaning from scratch. Not only will professionals be able to return your carpets to their former glory (and keep them looking tip-top), they’ll be able to do it much more efficiently. Plus, you can busy yourself with other tasks while they do their job, allowing you to be more productive.
