Carpet Cleaning Tips And Secrets

Did you know that detergent attracts dirt and that is the real reason you should use and purchase the correct cleaning solution for your carpet steamer or any carpet cleaning machine you may rent. Also be sure to follow the instructions on the carpet steamer when you are preparing to clean and cleaning your carpet.

One easy way to clean heavily stained areas is with the use of a shop vacum. No you can't use a shop vacum to clean a carpet but what you can do is clean a stained spot or spots with your carpet steamer and suck up the water each time with your shop vacum. You won't believe how much easier this makes it to clean badly stained carpets or badly stained spots on carpets.

If you have really dirty or stained spots you may want to obtain a scrub brush with a handle and a bottle of good carpet stain remover. You spray the dirty or stained spots before you do any other carpet cleaning and when you do steam clean the carpet you will be amazed at how easy the dirty and stained spots come perfectly clean.

Be sure before you steam clean your carpet that you vacum the carpets very well. A good through vacuming will make your carpet cleaning turn out so much better. Be sure to move all small items off the carpet and if you plan to steam clean your carpet under the furniture have someone there to help you move the furniture around as you clean the carpet.

If you have coffee stains on carpet that you just can't seem to get up mix up a teaspoon of white vinegar , a half teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and a quart of hot almost boiling water. Use this solution and your scrub brush and the coffee stains will come right out of your carpet. Steam clean over where the stain was and you will have a perfectly clean carpet.

And at least once a year you may want to have a professional carpet cleaner come in and clean your carpets. Be sure to ask your neighbors, family and friends for a company they would recommend to clean your carpet. Be sure that the company you choose cleans all the carpet and that they move and put back furniture. Why pay for a professional carpet cleaning if all they are going to clean is the middle of the floor. You want all your carpets cleaned if your going to the expense of having a professional carpet cleaner come in including the carpet under the beds and under the furniture.

      So I don't use detergent in my soap mixture because the statement above is true the detergent does attract dirt. However I do use fabric softener in my water and soap mix. Not only does it smell like Ive put the entire room in the washer it makes the carpet softer for my baby who is learning to crawl.

      I would certainly agree with vacuuming before you steam carpets. Try to use the most powerful vacuum you can for best results. It will also make the steaming easier too.

      Thanks for sharing these. I don't think many people realize how much carpet cleaning can help the value of your home - and help your carpet last much longer. I can't emphasize how important it is to get recommendations from friends, read reviews, etc. so you can make sure you're getting someone you can trust to make your home look beautiful.
