Last Christmas I went to the store and saw the best deal ever on what was the most perfect gift I ever saw. There was no way I could resist, so I ended up buying it for myself. The perfect carpet. It is only when the carpet was delivered to my home I realized what I had gotten myself into. With two kids and a dog, how would I ever maintain this beautiful work of art; after all I am only used to cleaning wooden or tiled surfaces. I had to find out about some good carpet cleaning solutions, and fast.
My kids have ended up staining just about everything they could in the past few years, and I look at the stains as a sort of reminder of everything that I have gone through with them over the years. And it doesn’t help that they won’t come off either. Not to mention my dog, who will bring every bit of dirt from outside back inside with him. Fortunately my friends and family were able to provide me with a number of carpet cleaning solutions that have preserved my sanity.
The most common, and one of the most effective, ways to clean a rug is through steam cleaning. The makers of carpets will tell you that by and far this is the most effective cleaning method, especially if you have a professional handle it. I have used this method and I must say that I agree. Steam cleaning is definitely the best method, especially in households like mine that have a lot going on. The downside is that to have it professionally done will cost a bit much (especially if it’s a big carpet) and it takes some time to dry (like one day). The upside is that you will see the clean and it will be germ free.
Your carpet can be cleaned or maintained by vacuuming on a regular basis and the use of different carpet cleaning solutions. The problem with this is that some of the chemicals that you can use are not exactly allergy-sensitive, so you should read the back of the bottles carefully before using if anyone in your home suffers from allergies. You need to be careful with these chemicals as well. I have seen countless advertisements where they promise to make your carpet look like new, only to try them and get disappointing results. Read some reviews online from other consumers to keep this from happening in your future.
It is of the utmost importance that you choose the best carpet cleaning solutions you can find, and a big part of that is doing a little looking around and research. Don’t let advertising campaigns get you. And be sure that any solution you choose is easy for you and your family to work around while it is in effect.
