The Ultimate Rug Doctor Carpet Cleaning
Rug Doctor carpet cleaning can be done by anyone and many people choose to clean their own carpet with these devices. Many different units are available for rent from hardware stores and grocery stores. Do-it-yourself carpet
cleaning can save you hundreds of dollars and you will hope you did it properly when you’re finished. You will also be able to complete the work on your own time. That means you don’t have to work with the cleaners schedule or take any time out of your regular schedule.
Why are so few people renting these machines and cleaning with them you ask? Let me explain the other side of the story.
It starts with getting one spot on the carpet clean, then the rest of the carpet looks dirty. After cleaning one room and spending three hard hours at work it starts to set in “I should have called a carpet cleaner.”
Often people find themselves in a situation they never expected. One of my clients rented a Rug Doctor and cleaned two spots she was concerned about on the carpet. Then she had two clean spots which revealed that the rest of the room was really dirty. She had spent about three hours figuring out the machine and going over each spot multiple times to get it clean, rinse it, then help it dry. It was at this point that she decided to call a professional. Fortunately for her, she called the Spotless Flooring professional and was well taken care of.
I spent less than three hours in my new clients home and cleaned two bedrooms, a large entry hallway, and her living room. Now all of the carpet matched in color and I had one very happy client. She began to tell me how angry she got doing the bucket shuffle with the small machine. She also mentioned that I spent less time in the home cleaning the whole thing than she had spent cleaning a few spots. She mentioned that I provided a better cleaning, removed all the spots, and got it drier than her cleaning machine could.
Some people stick it out and spend the time with these machines. Kudos to them. But now and again I run into someone who used a rug doctor to clean and then wants me to fix the stinky mess. Take a look at the pictures below where a DIY carpet cleaning machine was used.
