equipment power

It’s a well-know fact within the industry that domestic carpet cleaning machines, whether hired or purchased, simply don’t have the power of a professional carpet cleaner’s machinery; ultimately leading to less effective jobs. Professionally used machines have superior steam injection, heat and suction, all of which mean that a professional will get your carpets cleaner, leaving them more hygienic – it is no coincidence that these machines are generally heavier, bigger and a lot more expensive!

Standard of results

Rented cleaning machines are designed to help clean minor carpet stains and aren’t able to tackle deeper dirt, odours or major stains – they are also used and passed around by wide array of other people who have previously used them to clean their carpets, which means clogged brushes and a less effective clean. Professional machines are cleaned and cleared before every job – ensuring a more hygienic and effective clean with every single service.

trained vs untrained eye

Sadly, when renting carpet cleaning machines, it is extremely easy to get things wrong. Over-wetting the area, damaging the carpet fibres, using the wrong solution or overly long drying times can leave your carpet smelling musty, looking bleached and mottled or feeling rough to the touch – all problems which DIY carpet cleaning jobs are just naturally prone too.

Our professional carpet cleaners at Blitz, for example, know exactly how much water to add, how quickly they need to move, and the perfect chemical mix – not to mention they are trained on how to deal with carpet fibres and immediately spot even the slightest issues.
