Despite our best attempts at cleanliness… the carpets placed in our home become the victim of accidental spills, stains, dust, dirt and whatever else’s on the bottom of shoes. Once beautiful, your expensive floor furnishing will begin to resemble a dirty and matted breeding ground forbacteria and insects.
Cleaning your carpet is a good idea but how-to choose the best option with so many different carpet cleaning methods available? Or will a simple vacuum do the job just as well?
Vacuum vs. Carpet Cleaner – What Is the Difference between the Two Machines
Name 3 must-have home appliances and one of them will be a vacuum cleaner, no doubt. Vacuuming your carpets provides a lot of immediate benefits, an improved and clean look of your home being the most important.
However there is another machine that offers thorough carpet cleaning but is less frequently used by homeowners. This is the commercial carpet cleaner, sometimes referred to as a rug shampooer, a carpet washer, or a deep carpet cleaner.
What are the main differences between these two carpet cleaning options?
- A vacuum cleaner only cleans the surface of carpets – regular carpet cleaning is recommended because dirt and dust scattered on the surface is removed in this way.
- A carpet cleaning machine extracts deeply embedded stains and deep cleans carpets – it’s often used by commercial carpet cleaning services.
Based on the above, we can say a vacuum cleaner only cleans surface grime of the carpet that collects every day with regular traffic in the home. It’s found in every household and requires electricity to run. On the other hand, there are two kinds of carpet cleaners – home and commercial sized machines.
Home carpet cleaners can be rented from hardware stores by homeowners wanting to clean their carpets.
Commercial cleaners are more powerful, used by janitorial cleaning servicesoften to clean carpets thoroughly using the extraction method.
Is Vacuum Cleaning Better?
