I'm a cleaning fan & I saved a fortune on getting a pro carpet cleaner in, I used a savvy hack & it's super clean | The Sun

GETTING a professional in can be costly, especially when it comes to deep cleaning. 

Having a more thorough scrub down on household items can push the price up as professionals will use industry tools to get a better clean. 

But one money saver has discovered just the trick to getting an ‘industry’ clean for cheap on her rug. 

The average hourly rate for a carpet cleaner is around £60 to £120 per hour, according to Check A Trade. 

And one woman managed to get her carpet clean for a fraction of that price.

Liz Neptune instead took her rug to a car wash, and used their jet washer instead.

She continues: “Look, it's coming out. It's literally coming out.

“I bought this rug for $100 at Walmart, and, you know, it wasn't this rug of my dreams, but it was cute and it was my style and I was really sad about the idea of having to throw it out.

“And now my carpet is back down, looks almost brand new.”
