Carpet cleaners are a great way to quickly and thoroughly clean carpets, but it's important to check the fiber of the carpet before applying the solution. Natural fibers are not suitable for this type of detergent, and special equipment is needed to clean area rugs. Carpet cleaning machines are designed to clean the surface fibers of a normal carpet, but not the base layers where the real damage occurs. To keep carpets in good condition, it's important to vacuum them regularly and invest in a good carpet cleaning machine.
Start by giving your carpet a good vacuum with a Bissell SpotClean, which is designed for vacuuming liquids. After that, you can use an optional stain treatment on any strong stains. Don't forget to consider the drying time and how many times you need to go over the same area of the carpet before cleaning it. For most modern carpets, cleaning can be done as a DIY project once a year, saving you the cost of professional cleaning.
You can use basic over-the-counter cleaning solutions and a carpet cleaning machine. Alternatively, you may be able to rent equipment to clean your carpets. A good carpet cleaning machine together with the right cleaning products and a regular cleaning program can help extend the life of your carpets. Before using water to clean your carpets at home, make sure to consult the manufacturer's instructions.
