The Carpet Cleaning Checklist

When it comes to carpet cleaning, it’s not always right away that we use some carpet shampoo, a brush and a bucket of water and just be done with it. There are actually things that we need in order to get this chore done successfully and effectively to avoid carpet mishaps. Here are some things you need in order to clean carpets using shampoo.

Carpet Cleaning Solution

There are a lot of options you can choose from when it comes to choosing the right carpet cleaning solution. The oldest and most common are the carpet shampoos that come in both the wet type and dry type. If you want to use the carpet right away, then encapsulation is the perfect option for you. If you want to have the cleanest carpet on the face of this planet, then give the hot water extraction method a try. There is wide range of cleaning solutions when it comes to having a clean carpet and it all depends on what additional benefits you want (aside from having a clean carpet of course) and how quick you want to use your carpet.

Carpet Cleaning Machine

Carpet cleaning machines are much more effective when it comes to cleaning carpets compared with getting down on your hands and knees and scrubbing the carpet with a brush. Carpet cleaning machines can spread the shampoo evenly across the carpet and not only that, it also much more effective in activating the carpet solution of your choice. Another benefit of using a carpet cleaning machine is that it can penetrate deep into the carpet fibers, eliminating the dust, dirt and grime set further in it. These wondrously helpful machines are available for rent or purchase in hardware stores.

Other Cleaning Solutions

For a neat and clean carpet that looks highly presentable, other cleaning chemicals such as deodorizers, stain removers and disinfectants are also available for use. Stain removers, as their name suggests, removes stains that have soiled your carpets. Keep caution when using stain removers as some of them might do more damage than good such as discolor your carpet. Use a stain remover that is tested and proven to be safe on carpets. On the other hand, deodorizers are a must if your carpet is giving off a certain smell that you just can hardly tolerate. Disinfectants are good if you have kids or pets who love to roll around the carpet and you want to keep it safe for everyone aside from both parties as this will eliminate any bacteria that can pose a threat to everyone’s good health.
