The Best Way to Get Your Carpets Clean with Carpet Cleaning Machines
If you have a home with small kids or pets, you may want to invest in your own carpet cleaning machine. That said, they do not have the capability to get the carpets clean and the water extracted like a professional carpet cleaner does. But these machines are suitable for use in between major cleanings.
There are plenty of brands that work well for spot cleaning and light carpet cleaning. BISSEL and Hoover have several options to choose from, like pet carpet cleaners and small spot cleaning machines.
*Note: these machines should only be used occasionally for traffic areas, surface, and spot cleaning. Wetting the carpet too often without the proper water extraction can cause mildew and mold growth on the pad of your carpeting.
Additionally, the local hardware stores and some grocery stores carry carpet cleaning rentals. Again, they are great for a quick cleaning but will not extract like our tried-and-true carpet care at Professional Carpet Systems.
The Best Way to Get Your Carpets Clean Without the Use of a Carpet Cleaning Machine
If you want to get the carpets clean in your home using a DIY method, there are some things you can try. It is possible to spot clean and do a surface clean on your area rugs as well as floor carpeting. Here are a few steps to follow.
Step 1 – Remove the Dust and Dirt
Vacuuming the carpets only gets so deep. So, if you really want to pull the dust and dirt out of the carpet fibers, start by using a clean stiff-bristled broom. Sweep in short bursts working from the center to the edges. Then once you have gotten out, all you can- grab the vacuum and go over the entire carpet again.
Now you are ready to spot clean!
Step 2 – Spot Clean
To spot clean, refresh, and disinfect the rug or carpeting, use a solution of vinegar and water.
- Mix 3-parts warm water with one-part white vinegar in a bucket or bowl.
- Get an old toothbrush, scrub brush and clean rags.
- Dip the scrub brush into the mixture and gently scrub the areas to be treated.
- Once all surface areas are treated, use the clean rags to blot any excess moisture.
*Note: you do not want to saturate the carpet, or it will have difficulty getting dry.

Carpet Cleaning Secrets
Keep your carpets looking new with some simple techniques most carpet care companies don’t want you to know. Popular Mechanics lists the following in more detail. Here is a brief summary of the tips they suggest.
- Blot Stains- When you have a fresh spill, blot rather than rub so the stain does not penetrate deep into the fabric.
- Club Soda-Club soda on a cloth will help clean the stain. If that does not work, try the vinegar and water solution.
- Shaving Cream- Yes, regular shaving cream removes most any carpet stain.
- Dish Soap- Dish soap removes greasy spills.
- Ice Cubes- Chewing gum is removed by freezing the gum with ice cubes.
- Iron- Remove candle wax with a white towel over the area and heat the wax with an iron on the cloth.
- Hydrogen Peroxide- Peroxide is excellent for removing a blood stain.
- Comb- A comb will remove pieces of crushed and broken candy.
Finally, regular deep cleaning will help your carpet maintain its fluff and color. Steam Cleaning gets down deep and cleans your carpets to like a new state and smell fresh too.
