When it comes to cleaning your home, you probably don’t think too much about what it will cost if you’re doing it yourself. After all, if you just need a few cleaning bits and a day, what difference does it make? Well, we’re here to tell you that it can have a big impact on your wallet and your time if you set out to clean everything yourself – some things are best left in the hands of the professionals. For this example, we’ll be looking at something that most people have – carpet.

The Costs

So, first of all, let’s talk about the cost of cleaning carpet because it can be a lot more than you might think and you’ll be footing the bill for all of it.

First of all, you need cleaning materials. You can’t just go out and buy whatever you think is best. For carpet, you’d need a non-abrasive, non-toxic, non-staining cleaning product to ensure that you don’t destroy your carpet trying to get it cleaned. Do you have coloured carpets? You’ll need to ensure you’re not bleaching them either. This results in the need for specialist cleaning materials – you can expect to drop more than a few quid on a bottle or two of the good stuff. Then you’ll have other equipment costs like protective equipment to consider – unless you like the idea of a chemical burn or irritated skin.

The Time

When it comes to cleaning a carpet, your other main consideration is the time it’ll take you to clean it. It can take a lot longer than you might think to get a carpet cleaned properly, and this can lead to a lot of wasted hours if you’re new to the cleaning process.

All the time you waste will affect your life in some fashion. If you’re self-employed, for example, then that’s however many hours of earning you can’t do. If you have to take time out of your weekend to clean, then you can’t do other things which might bring you joy, so that’s no good either. Ultimately, you’ve got a few options to pick from but they’re all mixed in terms of results. Either way, you’ll be spending a lot of time cleaning which can be a headache to deal with.
