DIY vs Professional Carpet Cleaning

The Pros and Cons of Each

How to Choose a Carpet Cleaning Service

Your dirty carpet is hard to escape. Every time you enter the room, the spots, stains, and smells remind you to add carpet cleaning to your to-do list. Now that you’re ready to get the job done, how are you going to do it? You can either choose a DIY method or schedule a professional carpet cleaning. Which option is right for you?

DIY Carpet Cleaning


  • Possible cost savings: If you already have the tools you need or if you can rent a carpet cleaner, you can save money over hiring a professional service.
  • Your choice of cleaner: Do you want all-natural options? You’re in charge if you decide to DIY your carpet cleaning.


  • Research (and lots of it!): In order to properly clean your carpeting, you’ll need to spend a lot of time researching the right way to do it. If you skip this important step, you could end up doing more harm than good.
  • Learning curve: Expect your cleaning method to take longer than the professional’s. They do this on a daily basis while you’re probably new at this.
  • Be aware of accidents: Even with all the research possible, there is still a potential for something to go wrong with your carpet cleaning efforts.

Professional Carpet Cleaning


  • Minimal effort: When you hire someone, you don’t have to do a thing (except for call and schedule).
  • No equipment necessary: You don’t need to rent or buy the proper equipment required to clean your carpets.
  • Guaranteed service: Trustworthy companies, like JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care, will have a guarantee that the job will be completed to your satisfaction. Of course, there are some instances where no amount of cleaning can solve your stain problem.
  • Insurance: Should something go wrong with your service, reputable companies will have insurance to cover any possible damage.


  • Cost: Costs vary between companies, but you will pay more for a professional service (if you don’t plan on buying all the tools required for a DIY method).
  • Research: Inviting a company into your home requires confidence you are choosing the right people, so you will need to carefully research available companies.
  • Scheduling: While many companies will work with your schedule, you are at the mercy of what they have available.
