Could Carpet Cleaning be a Trade?

So I have seen these carpet cleaners and they have their “skill” down to a science. If I would have to clean carpets with the equipment they use professionally, I would never be able to do it off the rip with no practice. This is the reason I have questioned if carpet cleaning could be lumped in with the skill trades. It does take time to master the skill, what do you all think? While you are pondering the question here are some key signs you may just need to hire or talk to one of these fellas.

The odor is too much to handle-

You are nose blind to the odors that are in your home. Honestly why wouldn’t you be? You’re there every day, the smells are normal. Using products like carpet refresher or sprinkle on carpet cleaner will only mask the odor for a small time and create build up. This is actually one of the worst cleaning methods for carpet cleaning. If the smell gets to be too much to handle it could be a warning sign of a big problem such as mildew or mold. Severe cases of mold can potentially be very dangerous to your household causing many long term health issues. So before masking the smell which your guests will probably be able to still smell the odor, get your carpets professionally cleaned.

Water Damaging with personal carpet cleaners:

Home owners always add a carpet cleaner to the essentials for the home, but did you know it’s causing more harm than good? These machines put a lot of water into the carpet which causes the carpet to become water damaged. The machines put a ton of water into the carpet and don’t have enough power or suction to pull the water back out of the carpet. We think by opening the windows or doors we are drying our carpets but in this process we are allowing mild and mold to quickly grow back. Having a carpet cleaning in Columbus OH can reducing your chances of this happening in your home.
