DIY Carpet Cleaning Products.
These Few Diy Carpet Cleaning Products Will Get Your Carpets So Very Much Cleaner.
If you want to clean a carpet , there are a few items which you’ll find most useful. To run out and buy what you need without a little information would be unwise. For anyone who wants to clean a carpet, it’s important that you know what you will be doing. Then you will have a better understanding about what carpet cleaning products you’ll need for a great result.
It is my desire, to part to you, a system for carpet cleaning which always gets optimum results. Whether your carpet is almost black or just mildly soiled.
The system which I’m going to tell you about is a pre-spray and brush agitation method. For this kind of DIY carpet cleaning you will need a few simple carpet cleaning products. I’m not going to tell you that you need a load of high priced techno stuff. You’ll need just a few low cost tools that you can get from almost anywhere, or click products for carpet cleaning.
How the system works, is simple. You just prepare your carpet by thoroughly vacuum cleaning. Then you treat spots and stains with the relevant solutions. The pre-spray solution will deal with most stains and is sprayed on to your carpet via a pump up pressure sprayer. All major hardware stores stock pressure sprayers. They cost anything from £10 – £1oo’s. We just want a £10 cheap one for our needs.
The carpet pre-spray solution you can get from any good cleaning supplies store or janitorial supplies. While your there, get a carpet rinse solution too. These items come in 5 litre containers and cost less than £20.
Anyway, back to pre-spraying. It’s a simple matter of spraying your carpets in small sections about 4 ft square. You then use a special brush which is called a Carpet Pile Brush. You get this item from your cleaning supplies store too. You won’t get a Carpet Pile Brush from any other source. You must get one from a cleaning supplies store. Just ask.
Having pre-sprayed your carpet, the brush is used to agitate the pre-spray solution into your carpet pile. The soils in your carpet are loosened and separated from your carpet pile. Once you are satisfied the soils are now loose, you simply switch on the extraction machine and rinse your carpet.
Don’t ever think that a small DIY carpet cleaning machine will clean a carpet thoroughly, it won’t. Not without saturating the carpet. It’s this system which will use less than half the average amount of water. You won’t be repeatedly going over and over your carpet trying to suck out the soils. Hence, you get no over wetting.
Simply repeat the process of spray, agitate, and rinse until your done. Your carpet will dry quick and bright and you won’t get re-soiling problems either. Please use the DIY Carpet Cleaning Products which I’ve suggested. You’ll get great results if you do.
Best of luck
How To Clean Your Carpets At Home.
First of all, how important is cleaning our carpets anyhow? Your carpets may look soiled, they may look embarrassing, you may even be thinking that your carpets are unhealthy. Its like a car engine, it won’t run if your fuel filters are blocked up. Your carpets are much the same because they too are simply filters. Everything that is brought into your home by way of you and your family, it all ends up in your carpets!
All of the dust, dirt, pollen, chemicals and odors to name just a few, all of these irritants are dispersed onto and into your carpets. Your carpets then keeps it within the fibers to prevent it all from floating around your rooms and from you breathing it in continuously. Your carpet is, all said and done, a filter.
There is also already a ton of pollutants in the home that will contaminate your indoor air. All of these pollutants whined up in your carpets too. Its stuff like;
- the chemicals you clean with
- the cooking smells from your kitchen
- your dog or cat, budgie ext
- dust mites
- food droppings
- trod in soil
There is literally thousands of chemicals and pollutants found in the home which mostly ends up in your carpets.
Have you ever thought about how best to use your vacuum cleaner?
Because you can increase your vacuum cleaning considerably, not by doing it more often, or by taking longer to do it. There is actually a way you can increase your vacuum cleaner performance by large degrees. You simply must use your vacuum cleaner against the flow of your carpet pile.
Feel with your hand which way the pile flows. Then, use your vacuum cleaner against the carpet pile flow. Check which way your brushes turn if you have an upright vacuum cleaner. They will always turn forwards. If that’s the case, work with your vacuum cleaner slowly against the flow of your carpet pile. Just pull the machine back towards yourself slowly and allow the turning brush to raise the pile of the carpet. Then it will vacuum out the soils from the raised pile.
If you try to vacuum clean your carpets by flattening the carpet pile with the turning brush, soils get buried in the pile. They are much harder to remove from the carpet.
A cylindrical vacuum cleaner, you can push the cleaning head into the pile of the carpet. That way the pile is first raised then the vacuum follows lifting soils out from the raised carpet pile.
Always test carpets for color bleed and migration.
Its very simple and easy, but virtually no-one ever does it. You must always remember, that cleaning solutions must be high in alkalinity for them to clean. High alkaline solutions are sometimes stronger than the actual dyes in the carpets. If you clean a carpet using high alkaline solution, then the chances of you loosing color from your carpet is high.
Here’s the test;
Whatever solution you are using for cleaning your carpets, please, always do this test.
You simply use a white tissue. Spray on some solution onto your carpet. Make sure that every color in the carpets is covered by your spray. Then take the tissue and fold to fit onto your knuckles. Press down onto the sprayed solution with your knuckles for 30 seconds. Then take a look at the tissue and see if color has migrated from your carpet into the tissue.
You must never use a solution that causes colors to bleed from your carpet without a suitable rinse solution. Its the rinse solution that will stabilize carpet colors and make your cleaning safe again. But please always be sure to test your carpets first. If no color migrates into your tissue, then that solution is safe to use.
I always like to use two solutions when cleaning carpets.
I recommend using two solutions to everyone I teach carpet cleaning to.
One solution must be a good multi purpose pre-spray solution. It is this solution which will be the cleaner. The second solution is simply a rinsing solution and it does exactly that, it rinses out the multi purpose solution which is sprayed on and agitated into the carpets for cleaning. Rinsing is done through the machine and this neutralizers the high alkaline pre-sprayed solution, so you get zero color bleeding.
There are other test you can do like fiber testing which helps identify carpets that may shrink due to cleaning. All of this information is included in the DIY carpet cleaning guidebook I have written. But today’s carpets rarely shrink due to cleaning. Also, if this method is followed from the book then the chances of shrinking is lessened because less water is used for cleaning. Its the water that shrinks carpets, not the solution for cleaning.
Lastly, you can check a carpet fiber by dropping it into a cup of water. Just check to make sure the fiber floats. 9 times out of 10 a floating carpet fiber is safe to wet clean. A sinking carpet fiber indicates that the carpet has a much increased chance of shrinking. Extra caution must be used by using less water for cleaning. (Cut the fiber out from your carpet edge using scissors)
Spots and stains are very common in today’s homes. The right approach cleans them up always.
Usually, I like to use a solution called multi-pro pre-spray to tackle carpet stains. Its a good all rounder carpet cleaning solution and will clean up most stains. It always helps if you know what the stain is should you come across a more difficult stain. There are many solutions available today that covers practically every type of carpet stain. For simplicity, I would recommend multi pro pre-spray solution for tackling stains. But remember that this solution must always be rinsed out. Never leave multi pro to dry in the carpet. Always use a rinse solution to neutralize the pre-spray. These carpet cleaning solutions are Prochem products
There are dozens of ways to clean up carpet stains.
I like to use a spray on and dab method or a spray and brush agitate. Both methods work very well when a certain procedure is followed. Normally stains are best tackled from the outside edges and work into the center. Even when your applying the cleaning solution, its always best to spray on from the outside edgers working into the center of the stain.
For brush agitation, simply just rock the brush around the outside edges of the stain working your way to the center. So it’s spray and rock the brush around the outside edges of the stain in to the center.
With the dabbing method, its much the same. Spray on from the outside edges into center, then work your way round the outside edges of the stain into the center.
There is also a method where you can use a hot iron onto a clean white hand towel. You just spray onto the stain the appropriate solution and then use the iron hot to absorb the stain through the towel.
Carpet cleaning solutions must always be used to the recommended strengths. When mixing solutions with water, always mix to the recommended strengths every time. These solutions are designed to work most effectively when mixed properly. Simply just follow instructions on the labels.
Be aware about how to effectively use a carpet soil extraction machine.
In my book I always recommend you use a soil extraction carpet cleaning method. But for most folk, that means just getting a machine and whizzing round the room with it to clean the carpets. I’m sorry, but that is not how it’s done.
You must always use the proper technique in order to clean your carpets effectively. If you don’t, then the chances of you over wetting your carpets is 99%. I will try to show you here how you use a carpet cleaning machine for cleaning the carpets at home. Please watch this video.
So now you have an idea about how best to use a simple soil extraction machine for your carpet cleaning. But its worth mentioning about just how do you do a carpet cleaning from start, right through to the finish
For you, the very best you can do is always treat your spots and and stains FIRST. Then have the equipment at the ready and start your cleaning using the pre-spray and brush agitation method. Do it this way from start to finish without having to stop to clean up stains, or spots, or spills. Do it so that you can go all the way from start to finish without stopping.
At the end of the cleaning, you will want to set your carpet pile so that it flows in one direction and not all over the place. You do this with a carpet pile brush, give the brush a quick clean if you’ve used it for agitation and then comb the pile so that it is raised. Doing this will help your carpet to dry faster. It will look better as well once dry. I usually recommend that my customer stays off the carpet for 4 hours after cleaning. But I also say that if the carpet must be walked on, then feel free to do so.
Most people believe that professional carpet cleaning is better than DIY carpet cleaning.
Of course this belief holds true for most folk. But how many professional carpet cleaners do you think are willing to give away their carpet cleaning secrets? And besides, would it actually be in their interests to do so?
On the market today there’s all sorts of home carpet cleaning machines and most owners swear by them. They are cheap, easy to use, and convenient.
But still the overall view about home carpet cleaning is to get the pro’s in. That though is a matter of whether a professional service is affordable. In many instances, it is not.
So, how to clean carpets at home?
You have many DIY carpet cleaning machines available at low cost, that does the job OK, but only partial compared to a professional service provider. But people invest in hiring or buying these low priced machines in droves and mostly for economical reasons.
Then There is Home Made Remedies Like Mixing A Concoction Of Ingredients To Magically Clean Up Stubborn Carpet Stains And Spots.
Of course some of these home carpet cleaning remedies work, but don’t you think that cooking ingredients are best kept in the kitchen for cooking only? Stuff like Vinegar Soda Water, even Johnsons Baby Shampoo I saw mentioned on youtube!
The DIY Hire Machine Group, My Favorite Group, Who Try To Clean Carpets But Often Over Wet Them To The Point Of Saturation.
Admittedly, this group of people all say that the diy hire carpet cleaners are better than most other available low price machines. These hire machines need to be used regularly and often. If they are not being used effectively, the cost goes up. If you are on a tight budget, then it looks like reverting to investing in your own machine is usually the better option.
