Often times, when you decide to host an event or get together at your home, you’ll have to take a few steps to tidy up the area and interior of the home. In some cases, you may want to possibly pursue an intensive deep-clean of your home, to make sure that all of the guests are comfortable.
For some individuals, a tidying up session of their home, such as picking up any objects laying around, wiping down the counters, taking out the garbage, and vacuuming the carpets is enough for preparing for an event!
However, if you are an individual who likes to go above and beyond to prepare for a special occasion, or just want to finally remove the dirt and grime that has been building up in your home’s carpeting and fabrics, you may want to pursue a full-service carpet cleaning experience.
Instead of opting for a carpet cleaning company such as BNK Chem-Dry to come in and deep clean your fabrics, you may want to pursue other options, such as renting out a carpet cleaning steamer from a home improvement store, or getting down and dirty with some elbow grease to take care of tough stains in your carpet.
Going through a carpet and upholstery cleaning company can be a fairly simply process if you do decide to have an outside company help out. These companies specialize in in-depth, thorough carpet cleaning processes that are non-toxic and safe for the entire family.
The companies associated with the Chem-Dry franchise all use an all-natural cleaning product to shampoo the fabrics they clean, leaving a lasting, healthy, refreshing clean.
If you are the type who likes to impress their friends and family by maintaining a truly clean and health home, then pursuing a carpet cleaning company to do a thorough cleaning of not only your floors, but your upholstery, furniture, and other areas in your home can be a great investment.
In general, having a deep clean of your home 1-2 times a year can have drastic improvements on your overall health conditions inside the home, such as air quality and levels of dirt/moisture/mildew. If your home’s carpet is older and has more deeply-ingrained dirt and grime, you may want to pursue a cleaning company to take care of it. The entire process is totally up to you.
If you opt to go for the do-it-yourself route, you may want to take one of two options:
- Renting out a steam cleaner. Many individuals prefer to utilize their local home improvement stores steam cleaners for rent. In general, it is very cheap for an hour (or even daily) rental of the machine. Most of the time, you will have to pay for the shampoo separately from the machine, but it is still a good investment. This can be a good option if you want to spend a weekend like a Saturday or Sunday doing the carpet cleaning yourself. This can be a very cost-efficient way to get the deep clean that a typical carpet cleaning company would provide.
- Scrubbing the carpet yourself. Some times, you may want to skip the cost of renting out a commercial steam cleaner, and decide to clean your carpets yourself with a DIY shampoo solution and some elbow grease. A good rule of thumb for a shampoo product that is organic and non-toxic for both family and home is to mix distilled white vinegar (not apple cider vinegar) with water, a little dish soap, and some essential oils. This will create a cleaning solution that smells great, and won’t leave any harmful residue or lasting chemical odors.
