eva1984 Hey,

Unlike DIY, quality carpet cleaning services involve heavy-duty tools like steam cleaning machines. Nowadays many professional carpet cleaners are either portable or large units mounted to their truck. However, there are certain norms you should be aware of like making sure you get a solid quote prior starting of the work.

Beckon Call One of the best reasons for hiring a professional is time savings. We only have so much time and if we can leverage our money to allow us to spend that time doing what we enjoy instead of cleaning gutters, pressure washing, window cleaning, etc...the better.

Cleanupcrew We give the wow factor using a mix of softwash , for painted surfaces, and high pressure, including long lasting mould treatment for hard surfaces.
We have spent a lot of time and money to produce this result as opposed to the home owner using a cheap pressure cleaner to do areas that it is not the best treatment for.
We always have happy customers as they don't have to do anything and the results speak for themselves.

Steamworks Its funny, I posted a blog two weeks ago with almost the same title but for gutter cleaning. I believe people who are going to do it themselves will do just that. Once they make a mistake and damage their property or themselves they will give you a call. Can't tell you how many times I have been asked to fix striped concrete because a homeowner put a zero tip on a pressure washer and tried to clean themselves.

ultracleantile professionals wont damage the surface. It will take a professional a fraction of the time it will a homeowner for the same amount of work.

topnotch Homeowner needs to buy, borrow, or rent a pressure washer. Then they need to spend the hours doing it. Quality is totally up to the person doing the work

professional cleaning vs homeowner DIY


What do you think are the biggest difference between professional cleaning and cleaning done by homeowners? I have been blogging on the subject and would love your input.

My most recent post, professional driveway cleaning list some of them. They include:
  • time
  • money
  • results
  • insurence

What do you think are the benefits?
