There is no question that walking into your house after having it professionally cleaned is a very nice feeling. The look, smell, and overall environment of your home can be completely transformed with the professional grade equipment that is used by SPITz Carpet Cleaning in the San Fernando Valley (serving the Sherman Oaks area). Here at SPITz, we do not use traditional cleaning machines, but rather a specially designed Roto Vac system that achieves a level of clean that is just not possible by do-it-yourself methods or other professional services.
In fact, when some of the sub-par do-it-yourself, store rented machines are used with certain detergents, they can actually cause more damage to and issues with your carpet than you had in the first place. We have highlighted some of the primary risks associated with smaller, do-it-yourself machines in this article.
When you rent a smaller machine from a retail store, there is a reason that it is smaller than professional grade equipment. If the device is designed too large, it will not fit in your car and you will not be able to lift it on your own. These machines are so small and light because they have limited power, which means that they provide significantly different results than what is offered by professional grade equipment for your Sherman Oaks home.
As the machine that is used gets larger and heavier, usually it means that there are bigger pumps and motors that allow it to have much more power. More power results in a better clean. As the power is increased, the machine will perform better, even in the worst conditions. There will be more suction power, more agitation, and more water pressure to ensure that your carpets are brighter, cleaner, and dryer.
It is essential that you turn a deaf ear to all of the suggestive and very persuasive sales literature and videos that are associated with the typical do-it-yourself machines. It is also important that you realize that it is impossible to get the same level of clean that SPITz Carpet Cleaning in Sherman Oaks provides with a DIY machine. The more elaborate claims they make, the more money that the providers of these machines make. There are some companies that will even have false photos of supposed examples of their machine in action.
If these claims about the for-hire machines were really true and they truly could do the same quality work as professional machines, professional carpet cleaning companies would most likely cease to exist.
Hidden Machines of DIY Carpet Cleaning Machines
There are a number of dangers that are present when using DIY carpet cleaners, and in some cases, SPITz Carpet Cleaning technicians have to come in and see the damage that these machines have left behind. If you have ever used one of these for-hire machines, you have probably witnessed one of these issues:
- No significant results due to the lack of power offered by the smaller, lighter machines.
- Carpets that remain damp for several days, causing odors and smells in the carpet.
- Buildup of mold due to the water not being fully extracted from the carpet.
- A browning color that is caused by over wetting the surface of the carpet.
- Shrinkage due to too much moisture.
- A quick re-soiling of the carpet that is caused by too much residue content from the detergent left behind.
Unfortunately there are real dangers that may actually harm you associated with using DIY machines, including mold developing (with people in your home breathing in the spores), as well as carpets that have been physically damaged that need to be removed and replaced. Unfortunately, these are genuine problems that develop due to these for-hire carpet cleaning machines.
When you hire SPITz Carpet Cleaning for your Sherman Oaks carpets, you can feel confident that your carpet will be much brighter, cleaner, and completely dry when our technicians leave. Getting your carpets professionally cleaned can ensure their longevity, cut back on wear and tear, and reduce the need to replace the carpet in your home.
