Carpet Cleaning professional VS doing yourself
I’m here to tell you that sometimes doing it yourself does not pay off.
Along with the cost of the cleaning solution ($108.27 with tax) and the carpet cleaning machine itself, my husband, my son and I spent the better part of 2 days moving furniture, setting up fans, and using this behemoth of a machine to get our carpets clean.
As a result of our 2-day carpet cleaning experience, I have a sore ankle and back. My husband has a sore back, too. And my son is avoiding us, for fear that we will ask him to do something else.
I have to admit that it’s wonderful to have our carpets so clean, but I’m realizing that I could have had a professional carpet cleaning service do the work for just a little more money, and I could’ve been more productive elsewhere.
For instance, while my husband did this work in his spare time, I took time off from my work for this DIY project. I’m realizing now that I could have just as easily worked for those 2 days and used that money to pay a professional carpet cleaner — and still had a bit left over.
And we all would have probably been much happier in the end.
When To Let The Professionals Clean Your Carpets
In an effort to make the most of our money, many of us tackle hard jobs ourselves instead of calling in the professionals.
But if you sit down and do the math before going out and renting expensive tools and instruction booklets, you may find that someone can do it for you in less time, with greater expertise, and often for a lower price — especially if you take into account the cost of mistakes that are likely to be made by amateurs.
For example, my husband started our carpet cleaning project by flooding the kitchen with water when he walked away while filling the reservoir bucket on the carpet cleaning machine. He not only left the water running to answer the door, but went across the street and helped a neighbor with a gardening project.christmas cartoon cheap christmas gifts christmas tshirts christmas at kenwood a christmas number one merry christmas sign christmas background images christmas jumpers tesco uk christmas lockdown family christmas pyjamas 2022 uk traditional christmas dinner christmas toys george ezra christmas song call the midwife christmas special 2022 christmas emoji strictly come dancing christmas special christmas snow globe upside down christmas tree christmas day dinner near me aldi christmas strictly christmas special 2022 christmas bunting how many fridays until christmas sainsbury's christmas advert we r christmas couples christmas pajamas christmas tshirt christmas tree 7ft hallmark christmas movies last post for christmas christmas tv christmas plant how to draw a christmas tree london christmas christmas fabric mariah carey christmas new york christmas christmas quiz 2022 star wars christmas jumper cluster christmas lights tesco christmas 2022 watch a boy called christmas next christmas tree m&s christmas advert 2022 christmas candle castle howard christmas christmas tree shop christmas tv guide 2022 christmas table christmas tree baubles christmas gnomes mcdonalds christmas advert 2022 last christmas wham christmas lego budapest christmas market uk christmas markets 2022 homemade christmas decorations christmas shirt classic christmas movies christmas inheritance family christmas pyjamas 2022 uk berlin christmas market white christmas lyrics oxford street christmas lights 2022 gavin and stacey christmas special 2022 the grinch who stole christmas christmas t shirt christmas blanket pencil christmas tree dad christmas gifts waitrose christmas 2022 handmade christmas cards happy christmas images what to get for christmas matalan christmas christmas boxes marks and spencer christmas morrisons christmas food 2022 merry christmas in german family christmas movies bad moms christmas christmas jumper kids wilko christmas decorations christmas pics christmas lunch merry christmas ya filthy animal felt christmas decorations best charity christmas cards 2022 rainbow christmas tree christmas memes zero nightmare before christmas christmas bells orthodox christmas christmas gifts for women christmas day lunch 2022 near me aldi christmas 2022 almost christmas christmas clip art white christmas weather forecast christmas pjs womens mens christmas pajamas piers morgan christmas antigua christmas list ideas dunelm christmas decorations christmas stickers christmas top christmas activities near me the range christmas lights katie price christmas tree christmas table cloth christmas font boots christmas edinburgh christmas christmas napkins christmas things supermarkets christmas opening hours german christmas market christmas wallpaper aesthetic homebase christmas lights aldi christmas food 2022 aldi christmas opening hours lockdown after christmas christmas fairs near me pre lit christmas tree 7ft christmas film universal credit christmas payments 2022 homemade christmas gifts edinburgh christmas market 2022 tickets christmas gift ideas 2022 christmas menu stockeld park christmas christmas tree farm near me argos christmas decorations its beginning to look alot like christmas best christmas gifts 2022 delia smith christmas cake christmas tree with lights merry christmas in welsh christmas markets uk ladies christmas jumper amazon christmas trees 7ft pre lit christmas tree christmas joke harrogate christmas market 2022 christmas tree bag gel christmas nails outside christmas lights christmas tree outline christmas word search christmas decoration crown for christmas lost at christmas mum christmas gifts tesco christmas slots last posting dates for christmas last posting dates for christmas 2022 ladies christmas pyjamas christmas gin kelly clarkson christmas song tesco christmas christmas market oxford family christmas pyjamas 2022 asda tesco christmas trees 2022 how much days until christmas bournemouth christmas market how many more days until christmas merry christmas in spanish lego christmas jamie oliver christmas gravy white christmas decorations christmas at chatsworth christmas decorations ideas christmas party tops amazon christmas jumpers gonk christmas where can i watch a boy called christmas christmas wallpapers boohoo christmas jumpers dog christmas presents grey christmas tree twelve days of christmas lyrics morrisons christmas opening hours 2022
