Carpet cleaners are NOT required to have any qualifications to perform carpet cleaning; Therefore, any handyman and an unskilled person can become a carpet cleaner!
That is scary. Don’t you think?
Professional carpet cleaners, such as Clean House Melbourne, are the only people who should be trusted to clean your carpet. Anyone with less experience or certification will probably get you lower results and could even get your carpet damaged.
It’s easy to underestimate the value of having your carpets professionally cleaned. After all, you regularly vacuum and scrub out spills and stains when they occur. Don’t fall into this trap.
Carpet harbours a lot of unseen bacteria, dirt, hair, and, of course, dust mites. Most of us don’t realise that what we are seeing is only a tiny fraction of the soil that a carpet contains. The visible grime we notice is only the tip of the iceberg; up to 85% of the dirt, the carpet holds is buried deep within. When you consider that a carpet can eventually trap its own weight or more in the soil, you’ll agree it’s no trivial matter.
Even regularly vacuuming your carpet with a high suction vacuum (which mean with a very good vacuum cleaner) will leave a majority of dust and bacteria untouched. A regular professional carpet steam clean not only will remove all the bacteria but will also sanitise and remove all your ugly carpet stains.
Clean House Melbourne can take care of all your carpet, upholstery and rug cleaning.
Why should you always hire professional carpet cleaners?
It is paramount to vacuum the carpet properly to remove all the hair, finest dust and superficial dirt. Then, in high traffic areas, a high concentration cleaner is sprayed to break down all the embedded dirt. Stains are treated with powerful chemicals that are very safe for children, pets, and people with allergies.
After the professional carpet steam clean, the carpet is checked for any remaining stubborn stains. If any found, strong solutions are used to get rid of them once for all.
What will happen if you don’t use professional carpet cleaners?
A non-professional carpet cleaner may:
Over saturate the fibres
Promote an environment that may foster more mould and microbial growth in time
Change the colour of your carpet
damage the fibres of your carpet
Not be able to remove all your carpet stains
Leave marks on your carpet
Use too many chemicals
Leave your carpet wetter and needing more time to dry
Use a small carpet cleaning machine that has less suction power
Use wrong cleansing agents
Leave your carpet NOT properly rinsed
Good practices a professional carpet cleaner should follow:

Who does a very cheap carpet cleaning?
Cheap carpet cleaning sometimes is performed with small machines (sometimes hired from Bunnings) which have a very limited suction power
Cheap carpet cleaning sometimes is performed by low skilled handymen looking for some extra money
People just starting and have little or NO experience in the carpet cleaning business
A few Carpet cleaning companies who want to attract new customers looking for discounted carpet cleaning rates. Then, once they arrive, they ask for more because they have some hidden fees that are not SO obvious to the new customer’s eye
