Do-it-yourself (DIY) industry as bigger than ever. With so many tutorials, blogs, youtube videos, and other information on the web it is no surprise people are rolling up their sleeves and tackling home projects themselves. In fact, most projects are more rewarding when you buil, fix, or clean them by yourself. However, there are three big porjects which experts recommend DDIY (don’t-do-it-yourself)!
Go ahead and change your own light bulbs, but please don’t mess with home wiring. Wiring can be very dangerous, not to mention confusing if precautions are not follwed. Fired and seirous injuries are very likely. A liscensed electrictrion can help you complete your projects safely and efficently!
We are not talking replace that flapper on the toilet or an annoying leaky facut. Usually these can be fixed without professional help, and can often save you money. However, if your issue or project includes more than a wrench and repair kit from your local hardware store we firmly reccoment you call in a liscensed plumber. Bursting pipes and overflowing toilets are not fun for you or the plumber who has to go in and fix your effort. It will ultimitely cost less and less damage will be done in the end.
To extend the life of your carpets, and improve the health of your home, it is reccomended that your carpets are professionally cleaned two to three times a year. Funny enough, many people neglect their carpets above all else, even though they get the most use in the house!
Steam cleaners and detergents can be rented and purchased from your local hardware store to clean your carpets on your own. However, to give your carpets the deep clean they need you should hire a carpet cleaning professional. We rounded up a few reasons why.
When you rent or hire steam cleaners they use hot water and soap to saturate your carpets and make the curface look clean. This over-saturation and soaking technique leaves your carpets wet for 1-2 days. When your carpets are left damp for that long mold, mildew and bacteria is likely to grow. The residue left over from the heavy soaps and detergents acts like a magenet for dirt: you end up with carpets that are dirtier much faster than before.
Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning professionals use a process referred to as Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCA) that allows for a longer lasting, deeper clean. Our process is:
The HCE uses 80% less water so your carpets dry within 1-2 hours not 1-2 days.

Our process incolving HCE ises carbination to penetrate your carpets down to the base and lift out all the dirt and dust. We do not use detergents which means there is no dirt attracting residue left behind.
Grab your tool box and get to work on your home improvement projects and jump into those online resources. Don’t forget, however, if your project could cause damage or hurt the value of your home, cause injury to yourself, you should leave it to the pros. Good luck, and have fun DIY-ing!
