Carpet Cleaning Professional VS DIY

Professional carpet cleaning VS DIY carpet cleaning

Here at SERVPRO of Kempsville/Military Circle we do a lot of carpet cleaning. Many of us out there just say "I can do it myself" with the carpet cleaners sold in stores, but in reality having it done professionally is the best route to take.

Our technicians know exactly how to remove the excess water when cleaning, and when trying to do it yourself you could leave your carpet over saturated. Over saturation can lead to a nasty mildew smell, and mold.

Another reason to get it done professionally is because our equipment can remove much more soil than any store bought carpet cleaner. Depending on how heavy the soil level is will determine how our technicians will carpet clean your carpet.

Our technicians have 4 different ways of cleaning starting with Bonnet Cleaning. Bonnet cleaning is for a more light soil level. The carpet is lightly sprayed with cleaning solution and we use a rotary extractor with a "bonnet" pad to pull the dirt.

Next is hot water extraction or deluxe precondition and rinse for a more medium soil level. Depending if its more on the light or heavy side of soil will determine how our technicians will clean.

Lastly, for a heavier soil level is showcase premier cleaning. The carpet is shampooed, and rise and extracted for a deep cleaning.

In that case, going professional would be the best option. You would be surprised grime, dirt, and even germs build up in carpets. We recommend getting a carpet cleaning about once a year to have your carpet have a longer life span.

You can call us at 757-479-4447 to get an estimate for a carpet cleaning service.
