Carpet Cleaning Tips For the Home

If it is your wish to keep your rugs looking nice, clean, and new there are a few carpet cleaning tips and techniques that will make this possible. While stain cleaners and odor eliminators are quite popular and can be highly effective at their functions, if they are not used absolutely correctly they can cause more harm than good for your carpet.

Divide your carpet into quarters and clean one section at a time. You should pass over each section of floor at least once in two directions for the most effective cleaning. By doing this you will be much more likely to remove all the dirt, which left unattended can actually damage the fibers of your carpet.

Using soap based cleaners or too much water when removing stains from your carpet can actually create new stains rather than removing existing stains. Unfortunately, some of these cleaners will remain even after they dry, which allows them to potentially damage the floor even further. Damage can be caused when the soap remaining in the carpet removes the dirt from your shoes.

In addition, liquid cleaners can actually pull the dirt deeper into the carpet rather then removing it all together. While the stain seems to be gone, it is actually underneath the surface of the carpet.

the best tip is have carpet cleaned every 12month specially in some heavily used area, fail to do that may lead to carpet replacement whick may cost thousands dollars.
Pay special attention to the areas where people sit and move their feet. Vacuum these areas of heavy traffic with a crisscross pattern of overlapping strokes.
Soil retardants can be applied to new carpets or to newly cleaned carpets. Follow manufacturers' advice. Apply soil retardants only with professional equipment using the recommended application techniques.
Add baking soda to the bag in your vacuum to fight odors.

I may be a bit prejudiced, but steam cleaners and carpet steam cleaners are excellent tools to use when you need to deep clean your carpets. They use a combination of steam and the hot water extraction method to suction the dirt right out.

I agree with you. But I'm against usage of steam cleaning machines by non-professionals.

Is Karcher industrial steam cleaner a good option? It is for only £648 instead of £1070 at Akro catering equipment company. Should I buy it or not? Confused!
