Wondering which makes the most sense: renting a carpet cleaner, buying one, or hiring a service to do the work? The answer depends on your budget and how you want to spend your time.
Our team members have been researching carpet cleaning options (for their own homes!) so we think we’re pretty up-to-date on our analysis. Here’s some findings and tips to help you make the best decision and to also save you money.
The highly-rated, professional grade, but user-friendly BISSELL Big Green Professional Carpet Cleaner Machine can be rented from stores in your neighborhood for a fraction of the price of hiring or buying. Prices start at $29.99 for a 24-hour period but the best value is to rent it for 48 hours for $39.99. (Don’t forget to print out the coupon for some extra $$ off!) One of our team members bought the compatible Bissell cleaning solution on Amazon for cheaper a few days before their scheduled rental. Review: “We wanted to test out this machine before we committed to buying one. The Big Green worked great and we are so happy with the results! And it’s so easy to use!”
Here at CA Real Estate Group, we order carpet cleaning services to show off our beautiful listings. We have come across several great cleaning services that quote us anywhere from $250-350 for a four bedroom home with stairs and hallways. Pricing also depends on carpet area, heavy stains, and whether or not they move the furniture for you. Contact us for recommendations of carpet cleaners in your area.
The above-referenced BISSELL Big Green Professional Carpet Cleaner Machine is sold on Amazon for less than $400. For homes with a lot of foot traffic, kids, or pets, this might be the way to go. For smaller spot treatment and upkeep, two of our team members just bought the BISSELL SpotClean Pro Portable Deep Cleaner. We found it at Kohl’s at a discounted price + coupon + free shipping for $141.95! This is a good choice for upholstery, stairs, rugs, and interior car cleaning.
