Using powder is a great way to clean your carpet. This is the best strategy for cleaning your carpet with powder:
* Sprinkle the powder liberally over the carpet.

* Leave the powder for at least 30 minutes – but if you can leave it overnight, all the better – this gives the cleaner time to work, softening the stains and consuming the odours.

* Vacuum up the powder when you’re done.

Regular cleaning of the carpet is very essential. They have so many benefits. Using solutions made from lemon is an effective way to clean the carpets. Also, they smell good, so after cleaning your carpet will have that good smell. If you are cleaning it by washing, then make sure that the carpet is fully dry, before using it. Vacuuming the carpet is often a good way to maintain the cleanliness of the carpet.

Here are tips carpet cleaning....

1) Vacuum often - To protect your carpet, vacuum entrance areas and high-traffic areas twice a week and the rest of the carpeting at least weekly.
2) Start with a clean bag or filter
3) Vacuum at the right speed
4) Deal with spills immediately
5) Check a small area first
6) Clean in overlapping straight lines

Vacuum well before and after cleaning
Vacuum beforehand to remove large particles of soil. Vacuum again after you clean and the carpet is completely dry to pick up soil that wicks to the surface during drying.
Pretreat stains and high-traffic areas
Mix a drop of detergent with hot water in a spray bottle and lightly mist the dirtiest areas. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes before starting the general cleaning.
Remove or elevate furniture
If your furniture is too heavy to move, put aluminum foil squares, wood blocks or plastic film under and around the legs of all furniture to prevent rust from metal casters or stains from paint and finishes from transferring to damp carpet.
Don’t overwet the carpet
DIY machines put a lot of moisture into the carpet, and most don’t have strong enough suction to extract it thoroughly. Make only one pass with the soap and water solution. Make one pass with the neutralizing rinse solution. Then make two or three drying passes with the water off.
Let it dry thoroughly
Wet carpet is a perfect environment for mold and mildew. After you clean your carpets, open the windows, use fans and a dehumidifier, or put the AC on a moderate setting (72 to 78 degrees) to remove excess moisture from the air. Don’t replace the furniture or walk on the carpet until it’s completely dry. This can take up to 12 hours, though six to eight hours is typical.
