Professional Carpet Cleaning: How To Remove Pet Odors From Carpet

Professional Carpet CleaningSo you just moved in to your new home and you’re starting to smell the pet odor from the old owners animals. Maybe you’re just starting to sneeze because you’re allergic to cats or dogs. Whatever it is, a Professional Carpet Cleaning will help.

Pre-Vacuum

In situations like these we find it best to vacuum the rooms thoroughly. By vacuuming we are helping to remove the odor at the source, the carpet. Most carpet cleaners will miss this fundamental step, we won’t.

Anti-Allergen Pre-Treatment

We will then apply our anti-allergen pre-treatment. This treatment is designed to be safe for allergy sufferers and those with chemical sensitivities. The purpose of the treatment is to help lift soiling without leaving a harmful residue behind.

Once the pre-treatment has been applied we will thoroughly steam clean your carpet with 220 degrees of hot water. This important to help remove soiling and naturally disinfect the carpet.

Disinfect / Allergy Relief Treatment

Once the cleaning is complete we will apply a Disinfectant / Allergy Relief Treatment. This treatment will help eliminate any Pet Odors from the Carpet and provide allergy relief for allergy sufferers. 

All of these steps are rather simple but most carpet cleaning companies simply have no idea what to do when it comes to Pet Odors. Make sure when you hire a cleaner you are hiring a pet odor removal specialist.

Residential Carpet Cleaning- DIY or Professional Carpet Cleaning

When it comes to Residential Carpet Cleaning the homeowner is faced with 1 distinct question. Should I DIY or hire a professional carpet cleaning company? It’s not always easy to decide whether to do it your self or bring in a professional, lets take a look together to see what makes the most sense in your home.

DIY or Professional Carpet Cleaning

The Cost of a Rug Doctor vs a Professional Carpet Cleaner

Rug Doctor rental rates vary but they range from $30-$40 for a 24-48 hour period. You also need to purchase the chemicals used to clean which will cost you an additional $30-$50 to purchase. You can also buy a Rug Doctor for around $400.

On the flip side of that coin the average professional Truck Mount Carpet Cleaning set up for Residential Carpet Cleaning can be anywhere from $30,000 – $60,000 to buy.

However, to have a Professional Carpet Cleaner come out is far less than purchasing a professionally machine. Most Professional Carpet Cleaners charge either by the room or by the square foot. On Average a Professional Carpet Cleaner will charge anywhere from $30-$60 per room to clean depending on the package you choose. Almost every professional carpet cleaning service will require a service call minimum.

Carpet Cleaning cost example for 3 Rooms:

Rug Doctor – $60 – $90

Professional Carpet Cleaner – $90 – $180

How Long Does It Take To Clean

A Professional Residential Carpet Cleaning Service can take anywhere from an hour or so to clean a couple of rooms of carpet. A Rug Doctor however can take several hours to clean a couple of rooms.

Rug Doctor – 2 – 4 Hours

Professional Carpet Cleaner – 1 – 2 Hours

What’s The Typical Carpet Drying Time?

I’ve personally seen a homeowners carpet take 48 hours to dry after using a Rug Doctor. But the reason why it took this amount of time to dry isn’t totally because of the equipment, it’s because the homeowner didn’t have the knowledge to properly clean the carpet. A Residential Carpet Cleaning Service can typically get the carpets dry in 2-6 hours vs 1-2 days. The longer a carpet takes to dry, the more opportunity for there is for mildew to grow in your home.

Rug Doctor – 24 – 48 hours

Professional Carpet Cleaner – 2 – 6 hours

What’s Your Time Worth?

Doing things DIY can take away from valuable time with your family. The time spent with your family is impossible to put a price on, this is why paying a Professional Residential Carpet Cleaning Company is usually the best decision.

Can You Do A Good Job If You DIY?

As a professional carpet cleaner I can tell you that you can do a good job with a Rug Doctor if you have the time, patience, and knowledge to properly clean. To be quite honest Carpet Cleaning isn’t fun and it isn’t easy, leaving the cleaning up to a professional is just the way to go.

Is It Worth It To DIY?

In some cases it can be worthwhile to DIY your homes carpet cleaning. It make the most sense to DIY when a small spill or something along the lines of an accident occurs. Usually home owners will DIY when they can’t get a Professional cleaner out right away. Pre-Planning and Hiring a Professional to clean is more often than not the best way to go. It’s easy to ruin your carpet by using too much water and not enough Extraction power or by putting to much chemical or improper chemical down. Hiring a professional take all the guess work out of it.
