Steam Cleaning - Pre Treatment

Hi Guys,

I'm curious to know what you are all using when pre treating carpets, prior to steam cleaning / bonnet cleaning etc.

Personally, I have had varied success with 'off the shelf' spot cleaning chemicals, however am very interested to know what you use and if you use any particular method?

Additionally, do you use different methods for olefin carpets?

Thanks in advance!

Steam is safe for almost all heat resistant surfaces. When steam is applied to the surface to be cleaned, it loosens the tough dirt and grit from the surface which can be vacuumed up very easily thus giving a vibrant look to the surface.

First and most important thing is that scrubbing your carpets with a Rug Doctor is not good. You can use Oxi clean, using staeam vaccume clener is the best option. Steam cleaning is also good for removing stains.

Rainbowvaccumes and Eco Clean cares are pretty decent. You can go with them!.

Olefin carpet fibers tend to respond better with a pre-spray that has a pH of 10-10.5


I like Flex with Citrasolve from Bridgepoint and Prochem Axiom pre-sprays. These are developed specifically for carpet cleaning.

First you pre-treat the carpet, then you agitate the pre-treatment into the carpet fibers, let it dwell fro the amount of time specified on the directions, then you rinse and extract.
