BANG FOR YOUR BUCK: Save on carpet cleaning

(WMC-TV) - Getting the carpets cleaned can be an expensive investment. If you have children and pets, the carpet needs cleaning a lot more frequently.

WMC Action News 5's Andrew Douglas gives you the best bang for your buck when cleaning your dirty carpets.

The best idea is to rent a steam cleaner. It uses hot water from your tap and cleaning chemicals to shampoo the carpet, then a powerful vacuum to suck the liquid back out.

You can rent one for around $25 a day. Renting one saves a considerable amount of money.

Typically a home with 800 square feet of carpet might cost $200 to clean by a pro, so $25 for a day's rental and a $10 bottle of spot-and-stain remover represents a savings of $165!

Another option is buying one for less than $200. Hoover has one on its website for $169.99.

That's real savings when trying to clean the carpets in your house. Rent a steam cleaner and you can save over $165.

Is there something YOU want to save money on? Email Andrew at and he'll work to find ways to help you get more bang for your buck!
