call all the carpet cleaning companies in your area. The first one that doesn't speak English, nor have insurance, will be your low-baller..

Much depends on what size carpeting you have to clean. If you have a building with 24 units in it -all with carpeting, then buy yourself a $2000 portable carpet cleaning machine. You'll probably be running it every few weeks, it'll last you 7 years and will pay for itself....

If you have a house with 4 bedrooms and 1200sqft of carpeting, it might be a toss-up between having it done and renting a machine; depends. A company might charge around $200 to do that - but will do it better than you could with a rental.

If on the other hand you have a 2-bedroom apartment with 300 sqft of carpeting that, by your own admission, is worn, dirty and soon to be replaced, it makes no sense to own a machine like that, or any other one unless you plan on replacing the carpet with more carpet. Here, I'd suggest you have them done for you by a pro. Cost would be around $60 or so, but could depend on a lot of things.

Done once a year by a good carpet cleaner, that'll cost $60. Rent a machine from a supermarket will cost you $35 plus a (lifetime) supply of their chemicals, for another $20 (detergent and defoamers etc).

The rental unit will do a so-so job, the pro will do the best possible...so, where's the savings?

If you are looking to do the job yourself call local janitorial suppliers or carpet cleaning equipment dealers, often times they can rent you a good portable unit that will be a better choice for a one time cleaning. And you can pocket the profit rather than pay it to another company.

Contact all local service providers and compare the quotes. But don't go for compromising the quality for price.

Unless it's for regular vaccuming, why do you want to invest in buying machineries? For a deep clean, you may want carpet steam cleaning done for the job or whatever applies to the carpet conditions, for which you have professional services at door.

Best Regards,
Carpet cleaning depends upon material/fiber of the carpet. So Expert professional cleaners can solve your problem in this matter. I would recommend you to take help from carpet cleaning Bury and carpet cleaning Franchise company. They will surely help you.

Thanks,
with regards

Re:carpet cleaning

It's tempting to save a couple dollars and steam clean the carpets yourself, but the damage that you can cause your carpets could cost you thousands of dollars. Rippling carpets, faded color patches, damaged carpet fibers and worst of all mold, are all common problems people experience when they attempt to steam clean their own carpet. Just remember when you are deciding whether or not to hire professional carpet cleaner, the least expensive way is not always the cheapest!
