Are Hoover Carpet Shampooers Worth Buying?
Whether you rent or own your home, you’ve likely had to rent a carpet cleaner or hire a carpet cleaning service. It isn’t enough to only regularly vacuum your carpets no matter which brand of vacuum you use, as dirt, grime and bacteria often live deep within carpets.
Carpets should be deep cleaned once a year to ensure long life and to remove deep stains and allergens hiding in the weave, but no matter which way you do it, it needs to get done. Unfortunately for those who need their carpets cleaned in a pinch, this often means having to run from shop to shop to find an available unit.
To avoid the hassle of finding and renting a unit, many home owners are now considering purchasing their own carpet shampooer. But is the investment worth it?
While renting a carpet cleaner definitely takes less from your pocket right off the bat, it can be more expensive in the long run.
Renting a unit costs around $70 per use, not including late return fees and the cost of the cleaner fluid that you may only use once (unless you manage to rent the same model each time). Add on the fact that you’re using a machine that’s been used to clean unknown filth before you and you don’t have a very appealing situation.
For parents of small children or owners of pets, it’s likely that a unit will have to be rented multiple times a year, at which point it would be cheaper to simply purchase a unit to use at your leisure.
The Hoover Steam Cleaner is available for around $200 and is comparable to most rental cleaners on the market. With your own carpet cleaner, you can clean on your own schedule and act fast in spill emergencies to remove a mess before it becomes a stain, which is a convenience many home owners desire.
By choosing to purchase a unit, you’re also giving yourself more options to choose the model perfect for your needs, whether that be pet hair or frequent carpet spills.
Many Hoover models come with patented technology like SpinScrub rotating brushes that massage each fiber in fabric to remove hidden dirt and stains, and are designed to suck even more water out of the carpet, minimizing the time it needs to dry.
With the easy-storage design of a Hoover steam cleaner, you can spot clean on your own time, and always have that freshly cleaned look and smell. For those looking to keep a clean home, owning their own unit is the ideal option!
