Are you due for some upholstery and carpet cleaning? It’s so tempting to do it yourself, but there are some really good arguments against that. Here are just 3 things that can go wrong when you attempt DIY upholstery and carpet cleaning:
When you use a residential cleaning machine on your upholstery, it’s really easy to cause discoloration or damage to the fabric. If you use the wrong temperature water or the wrong types of products for the type of fabric, it can cause streaking or discoloration that often can’t be repaired.
If you aren’t a trained professional you could be doing yourself a disservice by trying to clean your upholstery yourself, because you could end up with the same stains and dirt that were there before. If you don’t use the right cleaning products, cleaning methods, and stain treatments, it’s almost as if you never cleaned it at all. The stains are still there even after all of your hard work.
If you don’t know how to get all of the moisture out of your furniture after cleaning, you could end up with permanent damage or dangerous mold. Water or moisture left behind could keep your furniture wet for an excessive amount of time.
This means you not only can’t sit and relax on your furniture, but the water could sit in the fabric and cushions and cause damage or even mold growth. In that case, you will have to replace the fabric and padding and possibly even the whole piece of furniture.
Upholstery cleaning is not only a lot of work, but it’s a science with special training and certification required of the professionals who do it.
