Equipment and technique for effective carpet cleaning

There are a few basic rules to follow when cleaning a carpet. Firstly, never aim to make a carpet look new again; this is nearly impossible because carpets wear out over time, especially if they are not regularly cleaned, and therefore can only look new again by the most powerful truck mounted carpet cleaning machines. Some stains are nearly impossible to remove, so no matter how much you clean them you will never remove them completely. However with hard work and the right stain removers most stains can be removed. Always examine the carpet before you start a carpet cleaning job and lasty, if you spot a potential problem, never be afraid to make your customer aware of it as this will help to avoid disputes after you have finished the job.

Cleaning Experience

Nylon carpets are easier to clean because in most cases you can safely use strong cleaning solutions with very hot water without damaging them so learn to identify the type of carpet you are cleaning. Wool carpets need special care because strong cleaning solutions with very hot water can loosen dyes and make them run so always test a small area before you start. Also wool carpets can occasionally shrink if you over-wet them; so try to minimise the amount of water you use and have them dry in the shortest time possible, use a turbo dryer where applicable. Truck mounted equipment is the best units to clean wool because harsh carpet cleaning chemicals are not necessary.

It takes time and experience to become a good carpet cleaner so start off by cleaning your own carpet and carpets for friends and family. This will give you an idea of the time involved, which will be useful when pricing jobs, it also gives you a chance to perfect your carpet cleaning technique before you go out to clean for a living. I have put together this guide to cleaning carpets, its may not be perfect but will point you in the right direction.

Carpet Cleaning Equipment

There are a range of carpet cleaning equipment for you to choose use. From carpet vacuum cleaners to carpet extractors (these are usually used by carpet cleaning professionals).

Of course the carpet cleaning equipment you purchase or rent depends on how much carpet cleaning you do on your own.
