The question is: ‘Is it worth the time and effort to do it yourself?’ Wasting your valuable weekend might be nothing to you, but note that carpet cleaning is no easy job, and it in fact requires physical and manual labor work that might be very strenuous and tiring, especially for females.

The next question is: ‘Do you have the necessary skills and knowledge to do the job?’

I suppose you already know the differences in carpet construction and fibers and what cleaning agents to use for what cleaning purposes. Or maybe you can choose to spend another day or two seeking advices or reading a good carpet cleaning book. Note that if you use the wrong cleaning agents or procedures, you might just damage your carpet unknowingly.

The worse scenario that might happen is that after going through all the troubles and putting your body through the back straining activities, you realize that you have just manage to save a few dollars and you ended up with a damage carpet!
