How To Clean That Messy Carpet
Living a busy life everyday can lead to a dirty carpet at the end of the day. This is worse if there is a lot of foot traffic inside the house, not to mention the spill which is why it is recommended to have it cleaned daily. The good news is that there is now hot water extraction equipment that can be used for easy cleaning. All you have to do is follow the steps below.
Firstly, you have to decide on the best way to acquire the equipment – either by renting or buying. If you are looking to buy then expect a price range of $200 to $4,000, depending on the model of the equipment. It is more cost effective to rent if you have the whole day devoted to cleaning your carpet. The average cost renting for a day would be around $30.
Once you have the machine, clear the room of any furniture to expose all the carpeting and spray stain remover on parts where there are obvious staining. Get your vacuum cleaner and run the entire carpeting once to remove the loose dirt in the carpet and it will fluff the carpet in the process.
Remember that the most basic hot water extractor will have two tanks and is self-contained. The first tank contains the water combined with commercial shampoo for carpets. The other will be the one catching all the dirty waste water as you move along the cleaning process. Follow the instructions on how to use the machine and put enough water and shampoo as recommended.
You can start the machine and work the entire carpet until such time that the waste water is clearer. If not, continue to refill the solution and empty the waste water as needed. Once the waste water is clear, it is time to let the carpet to dry.Make sure that it is truly dry before vacuuming it once more to remove any dirt that may have stuck on to it as it dries.
If you do not have the time to clean your carpet or to hire equipment, it is best to hire Chem-Dry in Franklin Tennessee for a professional carper cleaning service.
