I am a hopeless Do-It-Yourself-er. After all- it is the American way.
My family helped settle the American West and I somehow carry on the genetic memory
that makes me resort to self-reliance when things get real serious.
I've also learned that there are some occasions where asking professional help would
have been a good idea. Situations like hanging exterior doors and wiring home electrical
panels come to mind as a couple of my greatest 'moments of truth'. I could add others too-
like home heating systems, bathroom installations, and carpet cleaning.
Yes- Carpet Cleaning, and It is from the perspective of being a reformed carpet cleaner that
I'd like to share a couple lessons.
It is when I walk into a new job and hear the story that someone has been cleaning their own
carpet for years and now there are so many brown and yellow spots they need to ask a
professional's help that I can see myself most clearly. The store-rental and home cleaning
machines look like they can do the job- and the ads say they can- so why not?
After becoming a Pro I can now say 'why not'.
Training, Knowledge Power, Experience, Heat, High Powered Cleaning Equipment-
( I could go on--)
(these are all things you do not get when you rent a store machine- yet they are the most important!)
When you hire a trained professional- (at least when you hire one from USA Carpet) you are getting
someone with training in Cleaning Chemistry, the understanding of many different textiles including
all Carpet types, Physiology of Enzymes, Stains and Odors, Steam to clean and disinfect, High-powered
Vacuum to carry all contamination away from your home or business, and a broadness of knowledge and
experience that is capable of handling a very broad spectrum of home-owners and situations as you would
expect from a Professional. You also get a Personal Comittment to bring the latest in industry developments and technologies to your situation. And You Get This With A SMILE AND A GUARANTEE!
As time goes by I will add to these blogs many articles with hints, facts, and tips for the homeowner. It is my hope to participate with my clients to help them best preserve their carpets and textiles. There are, after all, many things a Do-It-Yourself-er can and should do. Most incidential situations can be handled at home with a few tips and tricks.
Here's to the American Way! Here's to self-reliance! And here's to my favorite company-
