A recent news story stated that a man lost two of his pets (a bird and a cat) as a result of a powered carpet cleaning product that he had purchased from a store. Although this is a very unfortunate story, what’s even worse is it’s not the first time something like this has happened. Because Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning has had to help multiple customers with dangerous situations related to DIY carpet cleaning, we want to take this opportunity to share some educational information about this issue.
The Risk Presented By Household Carpet Cleaning Products
The problem with many of the carpet cleaners that are stocked on store shelves is people assume they’re safe. While that’s a reasonable assumption to make since they’re being sold in Omaha stores, it doesn’t take much for these products to create an unsafe situation in a home. Unless someone knows exactly what they’re doing with a specific product, they’re at risk of endangering themselves, a member of their family or even one of their pets.
A common scenario is an Omaha homeowners spills something on their carpet and decides they’re going to clean it up on their own. Once they go to the store and buy a cleaner, they come back and start using it. However, because the instructions are in such small type, homeowners often expose their skin to this type of cleaning product before realizing that they’re supposed to have gloves on their hands.
Although it’s easy to see why most people think they’ll be fine if they rinse their hands off, it may already be too late. For many people in this situation, it ends up being just a matter of minutes until they start experiencing itchy skin and other unpleasant effects as a result of an allergic reaction.
DIY Carpet Cleaning is Dangerous and Ineffective
Not only is DIY carpet cleaning in Omaha potentially dangerous, but this process will never yield results that are as good as those offered by professional cleaning. There are several reasons that you simply can’t expect DIY cleaning to do as good of a job as a professional. In addition to involving different cleaning solutions, professional carpet cleaning in Omaha also utilizes different equipment. Since industrial cleaning equipment is the only option that can deliver proper hot water extraction, professional cleaning is the way to go for effective and safe results.
