Is it worth cleaning carpets yourself?

Updated: Mar 9, 2023

DIY carpet cleaning can be a good option if you have a small area to clean, if the dirt and stains are light and superficial, or if you're on a tight budget.

Whether or not it's worth cleaning your carpets yourself, depends on several factors, including the size of the area to be cleaned, the type and severity of dirt and stains, and your personal preferences.

Consider renting a carpet cleaning machines

There are many commercially available carpet cleaning products and rental machines that can be effective for removing dirt and stains, and the cost of these products and rentals is typically much less than the cost of hiring a professional carpet cleaning service.

Consider the physical effort and cleaning effectiveness

It's worth considering that DIY carpet cleaning can be time-consuming and physically demanding, especially if you have to move around all the furniture. It may not be as effective as professional cleaning for removing all types of carpets, dirt and stains.

In addition, using the wrong cleaning products or techniques can actually damage your carpet, making the problem worse and potentially requiring expensive repairs or replacement.

Consider your individual needs and circumstances

If you're up for the challenge and you have the time and energy to do the job right, DIY carpet cleaning can be a good choice.

However, if you want a thorough, professional-quality cleaning or if you have a large area to clean, it may be more convenient and effective to hire a professional carpet cleaning service.

Consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company

The cost of carpet cleaning varies depending on the size of the area to be cleaned, the cleaning method used, and the type of carpet to be cleaned.

Professional carpet cleaning can be a really effective way to remove dirt, stains, and odours, leaving it looking and smelling fresh. It can also help to extend the life of your carpet by removing built-up dirt and grime that can cause fibres to break down over time.

As we see, DIY can be a rough task! Please feel free to share this post and leave a comment about your experience if you've tried cleaning your carpet by yourself before. We'd love to hear from you!
