How to remove Stubborn Stains in Carpet

It's natural that when you need something done, you'll seek out the cheapest option available that offers the best service. You don't want to be paying peanuts to get monkeys, but you don't want to pay through the roof to find you could have paid half the price for the same service. When you need your carpets cleaned one option is to hire a professional carpet cleaner; another is to DIY and rent a machine from your local hardware store.

The first important factor to consider is how powerful the do it yourself Carpet Cleaning Machines really are. The chances are you won't be able to rent the commercial grade equipment which means anything you can get just won't have the punch or cleaning power that you can get by using a professional. They won't have the high pressure needed to get deep down and then they don't have the high suction required to get the water out that's been put down which will result in over wetting.

Germs and Mold

Then there's the dirt that isn't so obvious - the germs and bacteria, and the dead skin cells that feed dust mites. All in all, the carpet becomes a very attractive place for dust mites, mold spores and more to live and breed. Clean carpets look better, last longer and are healthier than carpets that aren't cleaned on a regular basis. Obviously, there is plenty you can do yourself to clean your carpets. Regular vacuum cleaning, for example, will help if you have pets. Our furry friends often leave a residue of hairs everywhere and the carpet often suffers.

Powders and Baking Soda

You can also use commercial powders or baking soda (which is great for eliminating odors) to clean your carpets. Sprinkle the powder liberally over the carpet - remember to do a patch test on an inconspicuous area first - and leave for 30 minutes or longer if possible. Then vacuum up the powder.

Machine Cartpet Shampooer 

For carpet shampoos, make up the solution as instructed by the label. Most shampoos need to be diluted with water and again, it is wise to test the product out on an inconspicuous area of your carpet. Use just enough shampoo to cover the area and try not to use too much shampoo. Scrub the area with a hard bristled brush. Leave to dry and vacuum once the shampoo has dried.

When you rent the machine, you'll be able to buy the chemicals that are marked up to make the most amount of money. Without them, you won't get far, and with them, you'll be paying so much that you may as well have got the professionals in. You also have to be sure that you what type of carpet, the types of stains, traffic areas and odors you are trying to remove, so that you will know what cleaner to get. You will be happier with the outcomes if you get the correct chemicals; it's not good using a coffee stain remover on a urine stain.

Another factor Clean Customs would like you to consider is what damage you could do to the carpets. Most homeowners don't know the difference between cleaning a wool carpet and one made of synthetic material.

With a decent DIY machine and good quality chemicals that are correct for Stubborn Stains in Carpet you have you might be able to clean your carpet with reasonable results, however, it's one that is not recommended.
