Man and Van Richmond looks at Carpet Cleaning
Many customers ask Man and Van Richmond if we can recommend someone
Man and Van Richmond has met many people who are having this dilemma, the cleaning of the carpets in the new home by themselves or hire a professional. Here are the pros and cons.
The team at Man and Van Richmond has extensive experience with people who are moving. Many of them ask our employees of advice when it comes to cleaning a new home.
The first thing you pay attention when you enter your new house is whether it looks clean or somewhat dirty. Sure, the dust on the shelves can be brushed off, but what about the carpets? If they look worn out or dirty the entire house looks filthy. So people have asked us if they should do this themselves or hire a professional. If you have just a spot or two on your carpet, you can try to clean those stains alone. Some fabric cleaner and a wet sponge can do wonders sometimes.
You can save money and rent a wet-cleaner machine from a local store. The cleansing products can be obtained separately, but mostly, are included in the renting price. Although, these machines won’t give the result that a professional carpet cleaning company will get. As a result, you might find that the landlord or letting agency will charge for an end of tenancy carpet clean anyway. So, it’s worth consulting your tenancy agreement first to make sure you’re not wasting time and money.
If you do not have the time or scrubbing carpets is not something you particularly care for. Or maybe you’re concerned that all the wild parties have left your carpet in a worse condition than you thought. Then a thorough clean is really only something that only a professional can guarantee…hopefully!
Man and Van Richmond advises you to plan your carpet cleaning even before you move into your new apartment.
