If you haven’t cleaned your carpets in a while, you need to use a pre-treatment cleaning solution before you wash your carpets. You don’t need to buy a pre-treatment kit separately since most carpet cleaners available in the market come with this kit which is usually a liquid and an applicator. Always read the instructions carefully before applying a pre-treatment agent to your carpets since these solutions are strong and you need to be careful. If you don’t have carpet cleaner yet then ensure you check the Carpet Cleaning ratings before picking one. While a good quality cleaner can last you a long time, one that doesn’t have a good rating might give way sooner than you expected.
This sounds like something everyone would do, but there are a few brave souls who like to start from the door. This is not a great idea since you’ll end up walking on the cleaned surface and this might affect the cleaning process. Once you’ve cleaned your carpets try not to walk on it for a while.
You need to have a good cleaning agent that enables you to enhance the cleaning process of your cleaner. The cleaning agent you use is important since some detergents are too strong for your carpets to handle and this may result in them fading and looking old. a good cleaning agent will help your carpets look new for a long time. Some carpet manufacturers mention the kind of cleaning agents you should use and not following these instructions could void the warranty of the carpets.
The best cleaners are those that don’t get too foamy and ensure they don’t leave behind any residue on the carpet. If you’ve got woolen carpets, always check whether the cleaning agent has a ‘Wool Safe Approved’ logo on the bottle.
