  • Carpet Cleaning Machines - Professional vs DIY

    As a professional carpet cleaner, many of the questions you may get from your customers will be related to DIY cleaning machines. “Why go professional in the first place?”, they may ask. “Why can’t I just go and hire a DIY cleaning machine from my local store?”. “Won’t this be cheaper and clean just as good?”. Many of them may have heard from a friend, or read online that DIY is the way to go. As trained and experienced carpet cleaners, we already know that DIY simply can’t match a professional clean. Answering questions such as these in a confident and concise manner can help you convince these customers to choose the best option for them and their carpets.

    No matter what you say or how you say it, there are people who of course opt to procure their own carpet cleaning supplies and hunt down their nearest DIY machine. Some may even look for home remedies online. Most of them will be trying to save money and many of them end up regretting that decision. There are of course some benefits of cleaning ones own carpets, so let’s take a closer look at the good, bad and ugly of DIY carpet cleaning.

    The Good

    Small Areas
    If someone has a very small area of carpet, that is kept reasonably clean (pet-free etc); then a DIY machine may be all that is required to give this area a superficial clean.

    A Sense Of Accomplishment

    For the average DIY guy (or girl), there can be an immense sense of accomplishment in being self sufficient. Without a financial or other obvious motive, these individuals simply enjoy maintaining their own house without involving professionals unless absolutely necessary. In these cases, the purchase of a DIY carpet cleaning machines may be self justified. If they are planning on using the machine regularly, it could possibly become cost effective but it’s unlikely they will ever achieve the same standard of clean that a professional can.


    Another benefit of a DIY carpet cleaning machine is the privacy that it offers it’s users. Some people may feel uneasy having a ‘stranger’ moving about their house and therefore prefer to hire their own machine. This also allows them to work at their own pace (although DIY machine hire is usually charged by the day or weekend).

    The Bad


    Many opt for DIY carpet cleaning machines to save money. The truth is, after you have hired the machine and purchased the chemicals that are required; the cost does not fall much short of a professional clean. People also fail to consider the cost of collecting the machine and transporting it back home. It will then need to be returned to the place of hire when the job is finished.

    And what about the old saying, ‘time is money’. If someone ends up spending two days cleaning the carpets in their house, they could have probably spent that time more effectively making money to pay for a professional cleaner and had spare change left over.

    An Untrained Clean

    A novice will NEVER get the carpets as clean as a professional. Does the user know how to operate the machine? Do they know how much cleaning solution to add? Do they know how fast to move the wand over the carpet?

    A less effective clean from a DIY machine is not only due to a lack of refined skill, but also because a hired or domestic machine will never stand match to a heavy duty professional carpet cleaning machine. The DIY machines do not generally heat the water as high as professional machines, which results in poorer cleaning. Professional carpet cleaners will also have access to commercial strength carpet cleaning supplies and cleaners which are more effective in cleaning the carpet.

    Stains & Odours

    When it comes to stains and odours, DIY machines may not have what it takes to get rid of them. Only the most superficial stains and smells will be removed by a basic machine like this. Deeply engrained stains and smells, particularly pet stains, will require a deeper more thorough professional clean. Only the techniques, chemicals, and equipment that a professional such as yourself provides will be able to restore the carpet to it’s former glory. In some cases, even a professional clean will not be enough to completely remove the unfortunate happenings of life.

    Moving Furniture

    Let’s not forget (and how could we), cleaning carpets is not all about pushing the wand back and forth. Furniture must be moved around to ensure all spots are cleaned well. Many people do not realise how much work goes into getting carpets clean throughout a house.

    Inadequate Aeration

    Most DIY carpet cleaning machines will use a steam cleaning function. Will the user make the carpet too wet? Will they be able to suck the water back from the fibres effectively enough to prevent mould growth? In the case inadequate water extraction, does this person have access to fans that will be strong enough for the area?

    The Ugly

    Mistakes Happen

    Anyone who is not properly trained in using a machine, domestic or commercial, can easily make mistakes. Perhaps the most often is causing damage to skirting boards, door frames and walls from careless movement of the wand or machine itself; but it doesn’t stop there. We at PowerClean have heard of countless events of water damage from untrained users of DIY machines. Whether its from poorly connected pipes, or leaving the machine running whilst attending to other things. How about self-inflicted injury (particularly back and shoulder injury) from the incorrect use of a machine (or moving furniture in preparation for a clean). The list goes on.

    Whilst there are some benefits to DIY carpet cleaning machines in select circumstances, its easy to say that a professional clean beats DIY in almost all scenarios. After all, a professional carpet cleaner doesn't just clean carpets; they do so in a way that doesn’t cause injury, damage or deterioration of the carpet itself. They provide individualised stain solutions, move furniture, provide adequate drying solutions and most of all they give carpet care advice. So next time your customer asks you about DIY machines, be confident in giving them clear and concise advice that YOU are the better choice!
