We have our own ''wet'' carpet shampooer, that we purchased new for $450, three years ago, after getting quotes from carpet cleaning companies to clean ours, the cheapest quote being $280. I found carpet cleaning to be a very easy task (it only takes about two hours). I have now cleaned our carpets five times, so we have saved a lot of money, and the carpets look and smell just as good as when a professional does it. So I don't think I will be calling your carpet cleaning company it Toronto (that you are advertising on your homepage) any time soon.

Actualy we rent, and our landlord had the carpets taken out. So we have no need for our carpet cleaner now.

FACT!!! Leading carpet manufacturers recommend you
have a true professional use hot water extraction / steam cleaning to
clean your carpets every 12-18 months. If carpet dry cleaning was indeed
the better option, those manufacturers would say so. They do not
benefit from telling you otherwise

Wet - I have the Bissell Pro Heat 2X. I use Genesis 950 in it when I clean because it pulls everything out of the carpet and does not leave soap in the carpet. I also rinse with my machine after I have cleaned. When I am finished, I use a dehumidifier to help speed up the drying process.

I recently tried a dry carpet cleaning. I ended up with more mess than ever! I used this really tough powder, it had to be sat on the carpet for an hour, then when the time is right I needed to remove with a vacuum cleaner. I ended up vacuuming for over 2 hours, that stuff was everywhere! (Imagine big white grains of sand all over you carpet). I decided to leave the carpet cleaning to the professionals.
