Its always cheaper to DIY isn’t it?
You’ll certainly have seen machines that you can hire at your local supermarket to clean your carpets. You’ve probably been tempted, after all how hard can it be , its only cleaning and its bound to be much cheaper than employing a professional.
Carpets and upholstery are all unique. Differing materials, differing levels of dirt, differing stains. All demand an individual approach to ensure the best clean. The Rutland Cleaning Company use the finest eco-friendly, detergent- free cleaning solutions that allow us to use the best options for your requirements. With a DIY machine the only cleaning solution is limited to a detergent based product which is not free rinsing and will leave a residue in your carpet.
Spots and stains are a separate issue. Even the finest cleaning solutions will not clean all marks and they need to be dealt with separately. At The Rutland Cleaning Company we have a spot and stain kit that contains over 15 separate products to deal with different stains. Rental machines do offer a couple of differing stain removal products which will apparently deal with all stains. If it were so simple we also would only need a couple of products.
The average clean is normally a couple of rooms and perhaps some upholstery. The rental equipment costs about £23 for 24 hours. On top of that to clean a couple of rooms you need detergent, spot and stain cleaners and possibly additional stain removers which quickly add up to over £50. On top of that you have to drive to collect the machine, move all the furniture out of the room, obviously vacuum using a professional standard machine, do the cleaning and then extract before returning the machine. That is all done using a low powered machine that will leave your carpets wet for hours or even days.
The alternative is for The Rutland Cleaning Company to clean your carpets using our 12 stage cleaning process and the most up to date cleaning equipment, and all that will happen without any effort by you. For a couple of average sized rooms that’s likely to cost around £100 or less.
So, is DIY really cheaper?
