Carpets provide great comfort and warmth to our homes, but they're also surprisingly difficult to keep clean. That is especially scary if your carpets are already badly stained and your end-of-tenancy date is near. Of course, you can always find some stain removal tips online, but due to the abundance of information, things can get confusing really quickly.

If you're in this very situation, and you decide to do the carpet cleaning yourself, please reconsider! Nowadays, not having your carpets professionally cleaned means that your security deposit will more than likely not be returned. Some rely on said deposit in order to secure an agreement with the next landlord or agency. In this blog, we will go over what your options are as a tenant whose moving date is approaching.

Why self-cleaning is not the best solution

By simply hoovering the carpets, only the surface layer of dust and dirt is removed. What remains, however, are dust mites, pet dander and fur, heavy traffic areas, and of course, stains. To deal with all that, specialized equipment and cleaning products are required, and more specifically - steam extraction machines. The cheapest ones which you can find already cost more than a typical professional carpet cleaning session. But you can rent one.

"Rug doctor" are machines which you can rent and use to clean your home carpets yourself. They operate in the same way that professional equipment does, but they do not generate nearly enough steam and have way too little extraction power. On top of that, you'll have to additionally buy suitable for your respective carpet and stains cleaning products in order to do a proper job.

If this sounds overwhelming to you, it's because it is - carpet cleaning is best left to professionals!
