Should You Rent a Carpet Cleaner or Hire a Professional? October 26, 2018

Barnesville, Belmont
Should You Rent a Carpet Cleaner or Hire a Professional?, Barnesville, Ohio

After installing new carpet, you likely want to keep it in the best condition possible. To do that, it needs to receive a deep scrubbing once or twice a year in addition to regular vacuuming. Thus, the question arises—should you hire a professional cleaning team or rent a carpet cleaner? 

Hiring a Carpet Cleaning Service

imageThe biggest advantage of hiring a cleaning service is convenience. Once you've scheduled service, the bulk of your work is already done. The team will show up and handle the rest. Some services may ask you to ready the rooms for them by moving furniture around, but that is normally included as part of the service. The major disadvantage is the cost. Professionals charge a considerable amount for the convenience. Also, you may be limited as to the hours of service; some companies do not operate on weekends or past 5 p.m. on weekdays. If someone cannot be home during their service hours, you could be out of luck. 

Renting a Carpet Cleaner

Renting a carpet cleaner is considerably more affordable. However, that comes at the cost of your time since you must pick up and return the machine, in addition to performing the work and moving the furniture around. However, doing it yourself gives you a great deal of flexibility. You can do the work at your convenience and concentrate on a particular room or area. If you are not happy with a single pass, you can clean the carpet as many times as needed to achieve the results you want.


Whether you should rent a carpet cleaner or hire a professional team depends almost entirely on whether you prioritize cost or convenience.
