Many people have carpets in their homes. Over time, these carpets can become dirty and grungy. However, most of us don’t take the time to clean them. In this video, you will learn several carpet cleaning tips.
Before cleaning your carpet, it is important to vacuum. This gets the first layer of junk and grime off the carpet and will set you up for the next step.
The next step is to pick the right cleaning solution. There are many that you can get from your local store or from Amazon. Generally, you want a concentrate so that you can mix it well. Once you have your solution, mix it in a pump up sprayer. This solution will loosen up soil and grime from the carpet. This pre-treating step will also start to dissolve the dirt and grime. You will want to let it sit from 5 to 10 minutes before the next step.
After the pre-treating, you will need to use a carpet cleaning machine. Fill it up with warm fresh water. Don’t add anything to this water. This will be for rinsing out the cleaning solution and any dirt and grime. Then you want to go over the carpet slowly with the carpet cleaning machine. Lastly, dry out the carpet with fans and make sure the temperature ia bout 70 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also use a grooming rake if you wish.
