Consumer Reports is a monthly magazine published by Consumers Union that reviews and compares consumer services and products. Recently they put do-it-yourself carpet cleaning machines under the microscope to get the dirt and see if they really work.
In total, they tested eight different machines from Hoover and Bissell, as well as a rental machine and a professional carpet cleaning service. After evenly spreading topsoil over the carpet and spraying it with water, they then pressed in the dirt by using a heavy roller.
Vacuuming over the soiled carpet twenty times with the different machines, Consumer Reports then used a colorimeter to test how much dirt was left behind. The results were hardly surprising.
“No home machines or rented ones did as good a job cleaning as the professional service. You can really see the difference between the professional cleaning and the lowest score carpet cleaner, the Bissell QuickSteamer 1770,” said Emilio Gonzalez of Consumer Reports.
We don’t know if they used a NYC carpet cleaning company, but since they are located there, it would only make sense. Here’s the truth though, if you are thinking of saving money by buying a DIY carpet cleaning machine, know that they do not do even half of what we are capable of doing. When you want your carpets cleaned, then you want to turn to the best carpet cleaning in NYC, Metro Carpet Cleaners.
