Duke granted gossip ban on ex- maids services
By Sue Clough Courts Correspondent12:01AM BST 23 Aug 2002
The Duke of Westminster, one of Britain’s wealthiest men, yesterday won a High Court injunction banning his former maids services from revealing details of his private life.
Frances Hewson, 51, earned £14,000 a year as the duke’s maids services at Eaton Hall, his country seat in Cheshire, until her dismissal last October. Neither party was in court for the hearing.
Tom Croxford, for the duke, told Mr Justice Stanley Burnton that “my client comes somewhat reluctantly to seek an injunction”. But recent newspaper articles featuring Mrs Hewson showed that she was thinking of writing a book or magazine articles about her time in the duke’s employ.
This would breach the confidentiality terms of her contract of employment and a verbal undertaking she had given earlier this year, said Mr Croxford.
Granting the injunction, the judge gave leave for Mrs Hewson, who was not represented, to apply to have it varied or discharged.

maids services loses claim 14 Aug 2002
The duke, 50, whose wealth is estimated at £4 billion, authorised Mrs Hewson’s dismissal after complaints from other members of his staff about “malicious gossip”. She was sacked for gross misconduct after her activities caused “discontent and disharmony” below stairs.
After her dismissal Mrs Hewson, who had worked for the duke for seven years, lost her grace and favour cottage on the 11,000-acre estate. Earlier this month an employment tribunal in Liverpool unanimously ruled against her claim for unfair dismissal.
Mrs Hewson now works as a night cleaner on a business estate. She turned down an offer of £5,000 from the duke’s lawyers to settle the case before it went to the tribunal, and since losing the case has reportedly been offering to reveal details of the Westminster’s private lives to newspapers for money.
Mrs Hewson, a mother of two, was quoted as saying: “I have been branded as a gossip, so I might as well behave as one. This is a David and Goliath situation. It’s not me but I don’t feel I have much of a choice.”
She has already revealed that Natalia, the duke’s wife, ordered staff to position lavatory paper in the stately home’s 20 en suite bathrooms so that only two sheets were hanging down. Furniture in the grand drawing room had to be in a precise line with the obelisk in the courtyard, and bed linen in all the rooms had to be folded so that the “W” monogram on the sheets was not creased. Upstairs rooms had to be cleaned clockwise, claimed Mrs Hewson.
Before the High Court hearing a spokesman for the Grosvenor Estate said: “We have reminded her of her obligations of confidentiality in her contract of employment.
“The Grosvenor family have never sought publicity and are entitled to their private life. Therefore Mrs Hewson has given us no other option than to take out this injunction.”
CLEANING AND JANITORIAL SERVICES
If you operate a maid services, janitorial, custodial, or swimming pool maintenance service, you should be collecting sales and use tax. Request a sales tax permit online.
You should collect state tax, plus any local (city, county, special purpose district, or transit) taxes on the amount you bill for your service.
Examples of Taxable Services
Tax is due on the charge to clean a home, office, warehouse, garage, restaurant, or any other building, or a swimming pool. For example, you should collect tax on your charges for such things as cleaning and straightening; washing windows, floors, walls, and ceilings; cleaning chimneys or air ducts; replacing light bulbs or fuses; picking up trash indoors or outdoors; and maintaining swimming pools.
Charges for minor repairs, adjustments, and maintenance of heating and air conditioning systems (for example, cleaning or changing filters) are subject to tax, if such services are done as part of your custodial service.
Charges for repair, remodeling, and restoration done on nonresidential buildings also are taxable. As an example, you should collect tax on the total charge, including labor and materials, to paint or hang wallpaper in an office.
Pressure washing is taxable as the restoration or maintenance of tangible personal property (see Rule 3.292). Pressure washing buildings, sidewalks, and parking lots is taxable as building or grounds cleaning (see Rule 3.356).
Swimming pool maintenance is a taxable real property service whether done on residential or nonresidential (commercial) property. Swimming pool maintenance includes testing, acid washing, adding and balancing chemicals, cleaning and changing filters, and vacuuming.
Examples of Nontaxable Services
There is no tax on the charges of a self-employed person who provides traditional household services such as housekeeping, babysitting, or cooking. For the charges to be exempt from tax, the person must be an employee of the household and not act as a subcontractor for a third party, such as a maid services
The tax exemption does not include other types of real property services provided by self-employed individuals to residential customers. For example, landscaping or pool cleaning services done at a residential household by a self-employed individual are taxable as real property services. See sections (a)(7) and (b) of Rule 3.356 relating to real property services.
Building maintenance and groundskeeping are not taxable when purchased by a contractor or a home builder as part of the improvement of real property with a new residential structure to be used as a residence, or when making an improvement to residential realty that qualifies as new construction. See Homebuilders and Real Property Services for more information.
Materials, Supplies and Equipment
You must pay tax on all soap, cleaners, chemicals, materials, supplies, and equipment used to perform your services.
When performing taxable services, you can give your supplier a resale certificate instead of paying tax on goods that are transferred to the care, custody, and control of your customer as a part of your service. Examples of such items that are passed on to your customers include wax and furniture oil or polish, and toilet paper, paper towels, and hand soap left in the restrooms for your customers’ use.
When performing a nontaxable service, you must pay tax on these items.
Reselling a Cleaning Service
At times, you may subcontract with a third party, such as a maid services to clean for you. In this case, the third party will bill you, and you, in turn, will bill your customer. You can give the third party a resale certificate instead of paying tax on the sales price for the service. You must then collect tax from your customer on the total charge.

Franchise Description: Merry Maids Limited Partnership is the franchisor. The franchisor grants franchises for house and window cleaning services for customers who do not have the time nor the desire to clean regularly. The Merry Maids system is designed and best suited for residential customers. While the Merry Maids system provides thorough residential cleaning even for a customer desiring only a one-time visit, the system is not for disaster restoration or extraordinary cleaning projects. The franchisor does also offer a conversion franchise to those persons wishing to convert their existing residential cleaning business to a Merry Maids franchised business.
Training Overview: Franchisees or their manager must complete the Initial Training Program in Memphis, Tennessee, or at such other location as the franchisor may designate. If franchisees are a new franchisee to the Merry Maids network and no Initial Training Program is immediately available after they sign their agreement, the franchisor may allow them to attend a mentor office to assist their start-up. The franchisor usually holds an annual three-day National Seminar at a hotel/convention center at a designated location within the United States. The program for the National Seminar includes at least 15 hours of training sessions for franchise owners and managers. Franchisees must attend, at their own expense, the first National Seminar scheduled after they have signed the Franchise Agreement. The franchisor also holds Regional Meetings one or more times per year, at hotels in various cities. These meetings include at least six hours of training for franchise owners and managers. Franchisees or a designated officer or manager of the franchised business must attend at least two of the meetings offered each year, which includes the National Seminar and Regional Meetings. Additional virtual trainings are available throughout the year on topics which the franchisor believes will be of interest to franchise businesses. During the first 12 weeks of business operations, the franchisor will provide business coaching consisting of regular telephone calls.
Territory Granted: The franchisee will receive a territory (Market) with a minimum of 15,000 to 35,000 Qualified Households for a Full-Sized Market, a minimum of 8,000 to 15,000 Qualified Households for a Mid-Sized Market, and up to 8,000 Qualified Households for a Small-Sized Market. A Qualified Household is a household with an average annual income of $75,000 or higher. In addition to Qualified Households, the franchisor will also consider total population and relative affluence in designating each Market, utilizing census data from SRC, LLC located in Orange, California. While the Franchise Agreement is in effect, the franchisor will not establish or license another to establish any other Merry Maids franchise within the Market. Except when advertising cooperatively with appropriate franchisees, franchisees cannot advertise or solicit sales or accept orders outside their Market. Franchisees may face competition from other franchisees, from the franchisor’s company-owned business, or from other channels of distribution or competitive brands that the franchisor controls.
Obligations and Restrictions: The franchisor recommends, but does not require, that franchisees personally supervise the franchised business. If franchisees do not personally supervise the business, or if they are a corporation, partnership, or limited liability company, they must employ a manager who will be responsible for direct, on-premises supervision of the business. The manager must have successfully completed the Merry Maids training program. Franchisees must offer and provide all the services required. If a customer outside of the franchisee’s Market is seeking cleaning services, the franchisee shall refer the request to the Merry Maids office which covers the customer’s area. Franchisees are required to follow the franchisor’s cleaning processes and use its cleaning products.
Term of Agreement and Renewal: The initial franchise term is for five years. If franchisees have complied with the Franchise Agreement and maintained the business in accordance with the OperationsManual, they will have the option of renewing the franchise for additional periods of five years each.
Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer direct financing. Its affiliate, ServiceMaster Acceptance Company (SMAC), does offer financing for up to 80% of the Initial Franchise Fee up to a seven-year period.
The Best Kitchen Cleaning Supplies, According to Professional House Cleaners
When it comes to kitchen cleaning supplies, it’s easy for the average shopper to get sucked in by the latest and greatest promise. Whether it’s a multi-purpose spray that will supposedly replace all your other cleaners, or a new kind of bottle that’s somehow more efficient and ergonomic, there’s always something to get us excited.
Professional house cleaners? Well, they know better.
They’ve tried out the products, seen through the gimmicks, and cut through the clutter to find the most efficient (and typically, the most economical) way to get your house clean. While some professional house cleaners provide their own products, others use what you’ve got in the house, so they’ve tried it all.
Professional house cleaners also tend to have a penchant for eco-friendlier and less chemical-laden cleaners, because they are exposed to the stuff all day, every day. “We are also seeing more customers steering away from traditional types of bleach cleaning products, as they are harsh and leave a strong potent smell which is overpowering,” says Michael Dimopoulos, an NYC-based Thumbtack House Cleaner and Founder of Lazy Susan’s Cleaning Service.
With all that in mind, here are the best cleaning supplies, according to Dimopoulos and two other professional house cleaners.
1. Bona mop and floor cleaner
“It’s the best for expensive wood flooring,” says Dimopoulos. The formula is gentle enough for older homes with original flooring and it won’t damage the finish.
Buy: Bona 4 Piece Hardwood Floor Care System, $30
2. Traditional wring mop
For non-wood floors, an old-fashioned mop is best. “In large spaces with tiles or concrete, nothing does a job better than a real traditional wring mop with great detergent, hot water, and maybe vinegar,” says Dimopoulos.
Our favorite: O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Spin Mop and Bucket Floor Cleaning System, $34
3. Microfiber cloths
All of our cleaners swear by microfiber cloths. “I use these on every surface,” says Dimopoulos. Melissa Maker, a Toronto-based cleaning expert and founder of Clean My Space, agrees: “They last forever, dry quickly and don’t harbor bacteria.”
Some Microfiber Cloths We Love
- SimpleHouseware Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, $20 for 50
- Amazon Basics Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, $16 for 24
4. Mrs. Meyers multi-surface cleaners
“Mrs. Meyers provides a great result and is good for the environment, too,” says Dimopoulos. Hermina Gil, owner of It’s All About Homes in Raleigh, NC (and the woman who keeps my house spick-and-span), has a similar sentiment: “If I only used one cleaning product, it would be Mrs. Meyers.”
5. Non-cellulose sponges
“These are great for any wipe-downs or any general cleaning where you don’t need to use anything heavy-duty,” says Maker. As a bonus, they don’t harbor bacteria, odors, or stains like cellulose sponges do.
6. Paper towels
As much as professional cleaners like to be eco-friendly, nothing beats paper towels for getting a shine on mirrors and glass, say Dimopoulos. Gil agrees: “Countertops sparkle when you dry off the liquid fully, so paper towels are a must.”
7. Coconut oil spray
“I use this as a natural furniture and leather polish,” says Dimopoulos. And it’s eco-friendly, too. Use it on your kitchen table, chairs, buffet, and other pieces.
8. Vinegar and water
In their own homes, Maker and Dimopoulos both like this natural DIY solution for regular cleaning. “Just don’t expect it to be as effective as a commercial cleanser for deep cleaning,” says Dimopoulos.
One last note from the pros: Be sure to stock up! Often, professional house cleaners are surprised by how little cleaning product is left in the bottle for them to work with. If you’re cleaning yourself, you’re also going to need enough supplies.

Asphalt tile: Try to mop every week using 1 cup of fabric softener in half a pail of water. Don’t flood the floor, since excess water can loosen adhesives and grout. Remove marks with fine-grade steel wool and liquid floor wax. Rub clean, then wipe with a damp cloth.
Brick flooring: Since brick is porous, keep the surface sealed and waxed with a commercial sealer. Mop after vacuuming. Use 1 cup of vinegar mixed in water to make it shine. Use a solvent-based wax, and use a wax stripper and brush to remove buildup as needed. Don’t use acids, strong soaps or abrasives.
Ceramic tile: Glazed ceramic is virtually stain proof; however, if it is unglazed, that means it’s porous and will need to be sealed. Don’t use harsh abrasives, acids or strong soaps on unglazed ceramic. Mop with all-purpose cleaner, and dry with a soft cloth. Strip unglazed ceramic once a year and rinse thoroughly afterward.

Concrete: Since concrete is very porous, it stains easily. Prior to sealing with a commercial sealer, sweep up loose dirt, and clean with an all-purpose cleaner. Use kitty litter to absorb oil and grease on your garage floor. Spread with a stiff broom, working from the back of the garage to the front, and then wash clean using a garden hose. If you need to use a heavy-duty floor cleaner, apply with a sponge mop, rinse and allow to dry. Concrete floors can be kept clean easier if they are treated with an epoxy paint or other strong coating.
Flagstone and slate: Natural stone is rough and porous and should be sealed with a commercial sealer. Apply two thin coats of acrylic floor finish using a lamb’s wool pad, or apply paste with a floor polishing machine. Occasionally strip, rinse and reapply wax. Use a mop using either clear water, all-purpose cleaner or water with fabric softener.
Linoleum and vinyl: Prior to waxing, vacuum and mop, remove marks with a fine grade steel wool. Cleaning linoleum and vinyl floors is easy, but be careful of the products you use. Solvent-based products, scouring, flooding and using very hot water are all bad for linoleum. The fastest way to clean the floor is with a one-step cleaner or polish, but the best way is to mop with all-purpose cleaner.
Marble: Non-polished marble is very porous, so seal it with commercial sealer. Mop it with clear water and all-purpose cleaner. You can also use 1 cup fabric softener to ½ gallon water, and use a self-polishing liquid wax. Strip occasionally, rinse and reapply wax. You also can use water-based wax or paste wax. If using a paste, test in a corner of the room to make sure the paste won’t discolor the flooring.
House cleaning experts can help you get any floor sparkling clean.
Cleaning hardwood floors
Many vintage and restored homes have original hardwood floors made of oak, maple or exotic woods like Brazilian cherry. Bamboo and other hardwood alternatives have become popular in recent years because they are made from a renewable source.
These floors can be cleaned by a daily sweep with a dust mop. Once a week, they can be damp mopped with a quality, liquid soap. There are also some cleaners that have gentle detergents and oils in them that will protect the wood’s natural finish.
When mopping a wood floor, be careful not to get too much liquid on the floor at one time. Wood floors can be damaged by being overly saturated.
As we enter into the cold season, many of our customers ask us how to care for their hardwood floors.
Hiring a floor cleaner
Professional floor cleaners use special tools and sometimes floor cleaning machines to clean and disinfect stained floors. Most people are familiar with professional carpet cleaning, but professional floor cleaners also clean other kinds of flooring such as tile and wood. Here are some basic tips related to finding and hiring a professional floor cleaner:
Floor cleaning cost: The vast majority of professional floor cleaners charge for their services by the square foot. The larger the floor area that needs to be cleaned, the more it will cost to use a professional floor cleaner.
Finding a floor cleaner: Homeowners and business owners are fortunate because there are several ways that they can find a good floor cleaner. Check reviewes or chat with friends and family for a recommendation a quality professional floor cleaning company. Those who are hiring professional floor cleaners should always compare quotes from several different companies no matter how these companies are located.
Frequency: Most experts recommend that carpeted floors be professionally cleaned at least once a year if they experience a lot of foot traffic. Tile floors should be cleaned professionally when the grout gets stained. The frequency of cleaning can be adjusted depending on special circumstances.
It is essential for homeowners and business owners to maintain their floors if they want to reduce the amount of money they spend on the repair, replacement and professional cleaning of their flooring. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Ease of maintenance: Simply put, some floors are easier to clean and maintain than others. Carpet needs far more attention than hard surfaces because it is easy for spills to stain carpet fibers. Dirt also gets ground into carpets quite easily. Hard surfaces such as tile and wood are simpler to clean because they do not easily stain, and they resist the damage that dirt can cause. Of these hard flooring options, wood is easier to maintain because, unlike most tiled floors, it does not have grout that can get stained.
Basic floor care products: A mop and a broom are a must for nearly anyone that has floors to clean. A vacuum will also be necessary if some or all of the flooring is carpeted. Spot cleaners will be needed for carpeted floors, and wax is required for wood floors.
Keeping floors clean: The first step in floor cleaning and maintenance is keeping the dirt away. Welcome mats should be placed at entrances so that people can scrape the dirt off their shoes before they enter. In some places, such as a home, there can even be a rule that people remove their shoes before entering. Immediately cleaning up spills, especially on carpet, also makes it less likely that dirt will get embedded in the flooring.
When a pain in Beth Greer’s shoulder led her to a chiropractor nine years ago, she wasn’t that worried. After all, she led a healthy lifestyle: She watched her weight, meditated regularly, and ate mostly organic food. Greer’s chiropractor wasn’t worried either; he diagnosed her with a herniated disk. But after three sessions, not only was she not better, the pain was beginning to radiate down her arm and into her fingers.
An MRI revealed the true cause of Greer’s pain: a tennis-ball-size tumor in her chest. The good news was the mass was benign. Still, each of the three thoracic surgeons Greer saw strongly recommended she have it removed. One wanted to get at it by going in under her collarbone, one wanted to reach the mass through her armpit, and the third wanted to remove a rib to get the tumor from the back.
They all agreed on just one thing: The surgery was risky. Because the tumor was in such a nerve-packed place, there was a real possibility that removing it could cause Greer to lose feeling in her hand.
Greer opted out of the surgery, and instead focused on doing everything she could to support her body’s healing capacity. Curious by nature (she and her husband, Steven Seligman, owned the Learning Annex, a group of schools offering short-term classes on everything from relationships to real-estate), Greer decided to learn everything she could about her condition and discovered that tumors typically grow in response to irritation and inflammation. Eliminating environmental toxins that might be contributing to her tumor’s growth seemed like a practical first step.
First, she turned her attention to the conventional household cleaning products tucked away in her cabinets. “I’d look at a label and it would say ‘hazardous to humans and domestic animals,’” says Greer. “So why would anyone want to use that?”
She ultimately tossed her entire collection of toxic cleaning products and began making her own with ingredients like vinegar, baking soda and essential oil. She also swapped her commercial body-care products and makeup for nontoxic ones, and she cleaned up her already healthy diet by eating only whole, unprocessed foods — without any labels.
Nine months later, her tumor was gone. Completely. Although she can’t pin her results on any one environmental change, Greer’s confident that cutting down her exposure to toxins played a critical role — so much so that she’s made sharing that information with others a central part of her life.
Today, Greer consults professionally with others who want to detoxify their homes and offices. In 2002 she and Seligman sold the Learning Annex and she began writing about toxin-free living. The result is her book, Super Natural Home.
During her research for the book, Greer was shocked to learn that there’s no federal regulation of chemicals in household products. Rebecca Sutton, PhD, a senior scientist at the Environmental Working Group (EWG), explains, “In terms of household cleaners, neither ingredients nor products must meet any sort of safety standard, nor is any testing data or notification required before bringing a product to market.”
The average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals, say environmental experts. We’re exposed to them routinely — from the phthalates in synthetic fragrances to the noxious fumes in oven cleaners. Ingredients in common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption and neurotoxicity.
Manufacturers argue that in small amounts these toxic ingredients aren’t likely to be a problem, but when we’re exposed to them routinely, and in combinations that haven’t been studied, it’s impossible to accurately gauge the risks. While a few products cause immediate reactions from acute exposure (headaches from fumes, skin burns from accidental contact), different problems arise with repeated contact. Chronic exposure adds to the body’s “toxic burden” — the number of chemicals stored in its tissues at a given time.
This toxic body burden is EWG’s chief concern about household chemicals. Sutton explains: “Our concern is daily, weekly, chronic exposure over a lifetime. Maybe if you’re exposed to a chemical a handful of times it wouldn’t cause harm, but some chemicals build up enough or cause enough harm in your body over time that it triggers some kind of disease outcome. The concept [of body burden] is that pollution is not just in our air and in our water — it’s also in us.”
No one can avoid exposure to toxic chemicals altogether, but it is possible to reduce it significantly. In the following pages, Greer, Sutton and other experts weigh in on the worst toxic offenders commonly found in household cleaning products, and offer ways to swap them for healthier, safer options.
Found in: Many fragranced household products, such as air fresheners, dish soap, even toilet paper. Because of proprietary laws, companies don’t have to disclose what’s in their scents, so you won’t find phthalates on a label. If you see the word “fragrance” on a label, there’s a good chance phthalates are present.
Health Risks: Phthalates are known endocrine disruptors. Men with higher phthalate compounds in their blood had correspondingly reduced sperm counts, according to a 2003 study conducted by researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Harvard School of Public Health. Although exposure to phthalates mainly occurs through inhalation, it can also happen through skin contact with scented soaps, which is a significant problem, warns Alicia Stanton, MD, coauthor of Hormone Harmony. Unlike the digestive system, the skin has no safeguards against toxins. Absorbed chemicals go straight to organs.
Healthier Choice: When possible choose fragrance-free or all-natural organic products. Greer recommends bypassing aerosol or plug-in air fresheners and instead using essential oils or simply opening windows to freshen the air. Besides causing more serious effects like endocrine disruption, “Aerosol sprays and air fresheners can be migraine and asthma triggers,” she says. Also consider adding more plants to your home: They’re natural air detoxifiers.
CARPET CLEANING TIPS TO KEEP YOUR CARPET LOOKING FRESH
Carpet is one of the most popular styles of flooring to have installed in your home. The look and feel of carpet can dramatically improve the appearance of any room in your house, but it is crucial to know how to properly maintain your carpeting.
If carpet is not cleaned regularly, its appearance and lifespan will be on the decline. There are several different common carpet problems that lead to a homeowner requiring professional carpet cleaning services. Here are some things you can keep an eye out for when you are trying to maintain the look of your carpet.
Carpet Indentation – Several different types of carpet material can easily be morphed by the heavy pieces of furniture and large objects that you place on top of it. These indentations will make your carpet look worn and dirty
High Traffic Areas – These are the paths and areas that your family walks on more frequently than the rest of your carpet. You might notice a high traffic area from the door to your room to a couch or another door.
Soiling – The material that your carpet is made out of can often trap dirt and soil deep within the fibers. So deep that a normal vacuum cleaner can have a difficult time removing these spots.
Staining – Stains such as ink stains, wine stains, juice stains, coffee stains and more are just about impossible to remove on your own. Although, you should attempt to wipe them away immediately, you need the assistances of an experienced carpet cleaner.
Odor – Carpet is also known for locking in any type of odor or foul smell.
4 Tips For Keeping Your Carpet Cleaned
Having carpet installed in your home is a smart move. This type of flooring is inexpensive, and it is easily customized to match the interior decor of any home. When you first install carpet in your home, it looks great. However, the trick is properly maintaining your carpet to keep it looking this fresh. There are four main things you can do to keep your carpet clean and attractive looking.
Vacuuming is not a difficult task, and it is something you can do on a daily basis to ensure that your carpet is clean. Even if your carpet looks clean on the surface, you should still run your vacuum over it once a day. Dirt, soil and other particles can sink deep within your carpet’s fibers. You might not see them, but they will affect the look and the coloring of your carpet.
Clean Spots and Spills Immediately
Most of the time, accidents are unavoidable. No matter how good of care you provide for you carpet, sooner or later, something is going to be spilled or dropped on it. When this happens, you should take action immediately.
When spilt items and stains are allowed to soak into the fibers of your carpet, they may never come out. Some of the most popular carpet stains include:
As a responsible carpet-owner, you should always have spot remover and professional cleaning supplies on hand. When you make these products available to yourself and your family, it can improve the look of your carpet.
Deodorize the Carpet Regularly
Since carpet can hold a lot of dirt and dust particles deep within it, it is significant that your carpet be deodorize regularly. Although it does not have to be done daily like vacuuming, deodorize needs to be a part of the regular carpet maintenance.
The carpet in your home is made out of a specific fiber. However, all fibers trap in smells. This is true even if your carpet is vacuumed and cleaned regularly. Specialized deodorizing products are available, and they work to keep a carpet smelling clean.
Call a Professional Carpet Cleaning Company
Since your home is such a high traffic area, you are constantly having people walk on your carpet. These people bring with them dirty, dust and soil from outside. These items get lodged into your carpet fibers, and basic home cleaning methods will not remove them or clean your carpet.
Only a professional carpet cleaning company will have the equipment and tools to clean your carpet down to the core. This will not only improve the appearance of the carpet, but it can improve the health of you and your family. Removing dirt, dust and other contaminants from the carpet improves the quality of air around your home. It is recommended that a carpet be cleaned once every 12 to 18 months.
4 Ways Duct Cleaning Can Improve Your Air Quality and Improve Your A/C System
4 Ways Duct Cleaning Can Improve Your Air Quality and Improve Your A/C System
Your air ducts are a vital part of your ac cleaning, although they often are neglected. Most people don’t realize the problems with air quality that dirty ductwork can cause in their Milton, Florida, home until the problem becomes detrimental to their health. Having your ducts professionally cleaned helps to not only improve the efficiency of your machine but the air quality in your home, as well. Some of the best benefits of air duct cleaning include:
Reduction of Allergens in the Air
Dirt, debris, pollen, and pet dander can circulate through the air in your home and make their way into the ductwork and components of your ac cleaning. Having your ductwork professionally cleaned can remove the buildup of this dirt and debris and prevent it from continuing to come out of the vents and recirculate through your home. This can help reduce allergy symptoms for those living in the house as well as those who are visiting.
Improvements to the Efficiency of Your AC System
Your air conditioning system will work most efficiently when it’s clean and free of debris. When dirt, dust, and other particles build up in your home’s ductwork, they will continue to circulate throughout the system, ending up getting dirt into other parts of your ac cleaning. Duct cleaning is a vital part of air conditioning maintenance, as it will prevent the other parts of your system from becoming dirty again because of dirt and debris running through your vents and ducts.
Fewer AC Repairs Due to Clogging
As mentioned above, allowing pet dander, dirt, and grime to travel through your air conditioning system can cause the various areas and parts of your system to become clogged with debris. This can also cause your filter to become dirty quicker than normal and cause other clogging issues through the vents and even in the motorized parts of your system. When clogging occurs, your system may not only break down and need repair but can also become dangerous as it tries to work to push the air through the clogged parts of the system.

Lifting heavy objects or move furniture. As a general rule, Dubai Maid Services will not move anything heavier than a 35-pound object. This is a safety issue and you should look for someone specialized to help you do jobs that require that type of physical strength.
How much you will pay for a Dubai Maid Service
There is no one-size-fits-all formula for how much a Maid Service will cost. How much you will pay can vary greatly depending upon the Maid Service’s experience level, your location (it will cost you more in big cities, less in more rural areas), the size of your home and how many people (and pets) live in the home. But, generally speaking, a Maid Service will charge less than a home cleaner.
Where a Maid Service can cost anywhere from $15 to $40 an hour, a house cleaner will be more pricey, charging $25 to $65 per cleaner, per hour. It may be possible to come up with a flat fee that you pay your Maid Service each week, but that will be based initially upon how many hours it takes to finish the job. During the interview process, make sure you discuss payment methods with the candidates. Most Maid Services are self-employed and will not take credit cards. Some may prefer cash to checks. Make sure that you are aware of their preference and that it matches with what you are comfortable doing.
Hiring a Maid Service doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process as long as you understand the general duties that a Maid Service performs. Be as clear as possible in your job description and make sure to cover anything out of the ordinary or things that are really important to you during the job interviews. Communicating your needs clearly with the applicants is the best way to ensure that you find the perfect Maid Service for your family.
Cleaning the house is a part of homeowner maintenance. It is simply a fact of life that dishes must be done, clothes must be washed, dirt must be vacuumed off the floor and so on. No one really enjoys the chore, but it cannot go unattended for too long. While everyone can agree that house cleaning has to be performed and yet no one really enjoys it, still people are hesitant to consider a house cleaning company.
This occurs for several reasons; people have misgivings about strangers in their home, they don’t want people handling their personal belongings, they don’t feel they can justify the expense and they’re worried about damage to their personal belongings. So, begrudgingly, we all just continue to carve out precious time from our already limited schedules to make sure the house is livable.
Professional House Cleaners Put Your Fears at Ease
While most of the objections for having someone clean your house are valid, they don’t really apply to a professional house cleaning company. A professional company, unlike most individuals, will be licensed by the state as well as bonded and insured. This means in the unlikely event something IS damaged, it is covered. Furthermore, a company brings with it qualified, trust-worthy and dependable house cleaners that have been screened.
Doing a good job is necessary and essential for a house cleaning company to stay in business, so they are extremely thorough when it comes to hiring. They also offer training, so the team that cleans your home will have specialized knowledge on the fastest and most effective way to get your home as clean as possible.
Get a Professional Shine
This brings me to the next important point to make about professional house cleaning companies; they know what they are doing. I am not suggesting that you don’t know how to clean a house. However, every profession, no matter how simple or mundane it may seem, has more efficient ways of being performed when done by trained individuals. These house cleaners know the cleaning products that work, the proper methods that get the deepest clean and can do it all extremely fast.
Aside from knowing all the tricks of the trade that make cleaning more efficient, cleaning companies also work in teams, so multiple people will be working to get your home spotless. This ensures everything gets done in a timely fashion. More people equals more hands scrubbing, more eyes checking to make sure there is no dirt and more effective and efficient use of time.
Steal Some of Your Life Back
The biggest benefit to having a cleaning company clean your house is the time it gives you back. Most people have a hectic schedule divided between work, family obligations and other responsibilities. After all of that, who really wants to spend their free time cleaning the house? When you hire a team of professionals to clean your home you get that time back.
What will you do with your time? Whatever you want. Spend it with the kids. Go to the movies or the park or any number of wonderful things you enjoy. Hiring a house cleaner is also a great gift for the person in the house that typically takes on the cleaning. Surprise them with a day off and you’ll be the hero. Buying back just a little bit of precious time; that is what makes hiring a house cleaner truly worth it.
House cleaning companies have something to offer everybody. They are a great option for those who NEED it, such as the elderly or infirm. They are also a great option for anyone who wants it, such as busy professionals or anyone with a hectic schedule. No matter who you are, if you own or rent a home and you are responsible for keeping it clean, professional house cleaning is a good way to go.
You can have house cleaners take care of your property at any frequency and providing any level of service. If you need them to take on your cleaning responsibilities entirely, for example, you can have them come every day for light cleaning or every week for a bit heavier cleaning. If you just want some help come spring time you can have a professional cleaning team come right at the beginning of the season and perform an all-day deep cleaning.
Approaching your house room-by-room is the most effective way to deep-clean your home at any time of the year, but especially in spring. Use room checklists as a springboard for deep- cleaning the areas of your home that really need extra attention. Feel free to skip items that have recently been cleaned and focus on the parts of your home that have been neglected all winter long.
Organize and Clear the Clutter
One of the biggest parts of spring cleaning is getting rid of clutter that you don’t need. Now is a good time to advantage of the natural spring urge to get rid of items that are weighing you down and begin fresh with a more streamlined lifestyle. A systematic four-step approach to identifying problems, analyzing reasons, determining solutions, and implementing remedies can be extremely productive at this time of year. Sorting your belongings into four categories—trash, give-away, store, or put-way—can also be effective as you begin the spring- cleaning process.
Now is a great time to plan a garage sale or to donate items to good causes. Cleaning will be a lot easier when the clutter is gone.
Get the Family Involved
If you need a little help in your cleaning endeavors, get your family involved. Even the most unwilling helper can make a big difference in the workload. Don’t worry: There are ways to deal with even the most reluctant helpers. This is actually a great time of year to get the entire family to work together. Try throwing on some music or establishing a family reward as an incentive to get the work done.
Tackle the Seasonal Chores
There are some special chores that need to be done seasonally. We ignore them for most of the fall and winter, but now it is time to bite the bullet and get these things clean. Even though these chores only need to be done once or twice a year, they will help your home run look better and run smoothly. Outdoor chores like cleaning grills, patios, and windows can be a little intimidating, but there are some simple tricks that can keep the jobs manageable.
Keep Cleaning Products to a Minimum
The cleaning aisles of our stores are stocked full of commercial products to help you clean, but the variety can be overwhelming. And dozens of cleaning products means dozens of cleaning products to clutter up your cabinets and closets.
Resist the temptation to buy all these cleaning supplies; the real champions of spring cleaning are more basic supplies, such as a good all-purpose cleaner and microfiber cloths. There are even homemade cleaners you can make that will save you money while protecting the environment.
Establish New Cleaning Habits
A good, thorough spring cleaning that includes the whole house is a great time to establish new on-going cleaning habits, and it can also make the next spring cleaning a good deal easier. Simple 15-minute cleanup routines practiced every few days, each including a series of 1- to 2-minute chores, can make it remarkably easy to keep your home clean and tidy all year
Keeping a house clean isn’t an easy task. Pesky allergens, dirt, and germs thrive around your home and they don’t go away easily. Furry friends are also culprits for dirty rooms, because they bring back grime, mud, and pollen after playing outdoors. Plus, kitchen counters could be a hotbed for bacteria, especially if you cook with eggs, dairy, or meat. If your living spaces are constantly dirty, add a steam cleaner to your cleaning arsenal.
Steam cleaners can be game changers for messy homes. Unlike brooms and vacuums, steam cleaners use steam to dry, clean, and disinfect home surfaces. They’ll tackle stubborn stains in carpets, floors, and upholstery that aren’t typically removable on the surface. And they do all the dirty work for you, so you can keep your rooms clean with minimal effort.

With all the steam cleaners out there, it can be hard to find the right fit. Before you drop major bucks on a steam cleaner, there are a few things you might want to consider.
Size: Make sure the appliance is fit for the task. You don’t want to buy a steam cleaner that’s too big or too small to get the job done. If you have a large home, opt for a steam cleaner that can clean multiple surfaces. On the other hand, if you have a tiny apartment, a handheld steam cleaner might be best to tackle spills, stains, and messes.
Household surfaces: Where will you use your steam cleaner? Consider your household surfaces that need constant cleaning. There are steam cleaners specifically made for carpets, floors, upholstery, and other surfaces for stress-free cleaning.
Cleaning features: Not all steam cleaners are created the same. Some steam cleaners only remove stains, while others only sanitize spaces. If a steam cleaner has both capabilities, that’s even better for convenience and quality.
Ease of use: Steam cleaners are supposed to be convenient. If a steam cleaner is too complicated to use, skip it and see your other options. You’ll want to choose a model that comes with easy setup and maintenance, so you won’t have to invest more time for handling tough messes.
Warranty: Steam cleaners don’t come cheap, so read up on their warranty policies before making a purchasing decision. A warranty can be a major plus if your steam cleaner stops working properly. Not all steam cleaners include warranties though, so consider how much you’ll be spending on maintenance if this is the case.
Whether you need help removing stains, sanitizing spaces, or deodorizing rooms, there’s a steam cleaner out there for your cleaning needs. Here are our top seven picks for the best steam cleaners.
Unleash your inner clean freak. We’re here to help you choose the right steam cleaner for removing stains, disinfecting surfaces, and deodorizing living spaces.

Carpets plays a vital role in our homes. They not only decorate our homes but they also help to keep the floor warm. However just like any other accessory, carpets are bound to get dirty and need to be cleaned on a regular basis. When it to carpet cleaning, most Singaporeans usually prefer cleaning them by themselves thinking that hiring a professional is a waste and money. Although it is possible to clean your carpet yourself at home, the truth is that you actually lack vital equipment as well as skills to help you to clean the carpet to perfection. If your carpet is not well cleaned, it can pose serious health problem both to your family as well as pets living around. So are you considering to hire a professional carpet cleaning service but you are wondering if it is worth it? If yes then today you are in the right place because in this article, we are going to give you the benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaning.
1. Quality cleaning equipment
One main benefit you that you will get when you hire a professional carpet cleaning professional is the use of professional carpet cleaning equipment. Unlike cleaning at home where you use causal equipment such as brush and vacuum cleaners which are not effective especially in removing stubborn dirt, professional carpet cleaners have all necessary tools needed to clean your carpet to perfection. Depending on the fabric that your carpet is made of, they will use the most suitable equipment that will ensure that even the most stubborn dirt is removed leaving your carpet sparkling clean.
2. Experience in carpet cleaning
In most cases, when you clean your carpet at home, most of your cleaning methods are usually based on guesswork. This is very dangerous because instead of cleaning the carpet, you may end up damaging it, thus reducing its lifespan. Professional carpet cleaners not only have the right equipment but they also have the right skills and experience. Being professional in this flied, they have tremendous knowledge that will enable them clean your carpet to perfection. Regardless of the state of your carpet, they will use their knowledge and skills to eliminate all harmful bacteria as well as dirt and debris that are stuck on the carpet. The fact that they have dealt with many cases that are similar to that of your carpet, it means that they deliver quality services that will go even beyond your expectations.
3. Correct cleaning detergents
Do you know that the detergent that you use to clean your carpet will not only determine its final outcome but will also determine its lifespan? Most people usually use detergents that have not been recommend by the manufacture when cleaning their carpets. This is dangerous because the detergent used does not clean the carpet perfectly and in addition to that, it also shortens the carpets lifespan. Professional carpet cleaners have conducted extensive research on detergents and they know the right detergent to use for a particular carpet fabric. The detergent used will not only leave your carpet sparking clean but will also prolong its lifespan
4. Cleaning to perfection
Most home cleaning methods are usually unable to get rid of stubborn dirt and bacteria. This is mainly due to lack of knowledge on carpet cleaning as well as using wrong carpet cleaning equipment. Correct cleaning of your carpet is very important not only in improving the overall look of your house but also on general health of people living in the house. A study that was conducted recently by an independent institution in Singapore revealed that carpets usually contain a lot of unseen dirt and bacteria that can be harmful to humans and pets if they are not correctly cleaned. When you use the services of professional carpet cleaners, they will use right carpet cleaning tools, detergents as well as experience to ensure that that even the most stubborn dirt and bacteria are removed.
5. They allow you to focus on other important things
Hiring the services of a professional carpet cleaner in Singapore will not only ensure tht your carpet is cleaned to perfection but will also give you time to focus on other important things that will improve the quality of your life. Tough economy has forced many Singaporeans to spend more time working. When you hire a professional carpet cleaning service, you will know that your carpet is in safe hand, a factor that will give you peace of mind. In addition to that, you will utilize the time that you would otherwise have spent to clean the carpet to bond with friends and family or even engage in work related activity.
6. They help prolong your carpets lifespan
Are you wondering why your carpet is aging quickly? If yes then it is probably because you are using wrong carpet cleaning methods. Carpets are very sensitive and they usually react depending on the cleaning method used. If you use cleaning equipment and detergents that are not suitable for that particular fabric, it will greatly affect the carpet lifespan. When you hire the services of professional carpet cleaner, they will first analyze the carpet fabric before they determine the detergent and cleaning equipment to use. They will then use a cleaning method that will not only clean your carpet perfectly but one that will also strengthen the carpets fabric thus improving its lifespan.
7. They give professional advice to their clients at no cost
Professional carpet cleaners not only clean carpet perfectly but they also give their clients professional advice to help them maintain the carpets cleanliness. This is very important because it will help prevent you from cleaning the carpet frequently. In addition to that, they will also advice you on how you should be doing light cleaning on your carpet and all of this will be at no cost. They will not only put a smile on your face by cleaning your carpet well but will also educate you on how to maintain it.
In conclusion, as discussed above, it is clear that hiring a professional carpet cleaning service is prudent idea. They will not only clean your carpet to perfection but will also prolong its lifespan.

How Do I Clean Carpet Stains?
You do everything you can to keep your carpets clean, from removing your shoes before walking on it to not allowing your kids to bring food into the room, but spills are usually inevitable. Whether it’s coffee, wine or Gatorade, how you deal with the stain after it happens will determine if you are able to remove it permanently.
The folks at Good Housekeeping offer an “expert-approved method” for cleaning carpets with dried-on stains such as red wine, gravy, mud, pet messes and more.
Get two empty spray bottles, filling one with cold water and in the other, mix ¼ teaspoon mild dishwashing liquid, like Dawn, with 1 cup warm water.
Spray the Dawn solution onto an absorbent cloth (don’t spray it directly on the carpet – you don’t want it to get too wet) and dab it on to the spot. Do not rub it! As the stain begins to dissolve, blot with a clean section of cloth. Continue to apply and blot until the stain is gone.
Spray another cloth with cold water, and use it to rinse the detergent solution from the carpet, and then blot with a dry cloth.
Pile a stock of paper towels on the spot and place something heavy, like a pot, on top and leave overnight. The towels should soak up any residual stain that is deep in the carpet. The next morning, fluff the fibers of the carpet with your fingers and let it air-dry.
If you are in need of a more targeted approach to a stain, check out Good Housekeeping’s website for specifics on dealing with certain types of stains.
How Do I Keep My Carpets Looking Like New?
No matter how many times you vacuum or deep clean your carpets, they can get dirty fast. To keeps your carpets looking fresh and clean for as long as possible between deep cleanings, the experts at Good Housekeeping have a few tips for you to follow.
Keep Dirt Outside
Keep a doormat outside the door so visitors can wipe their feet before going inside. Try to keep dirt at a minimum by implementing a “No Shoes in The House” rule. Keeping a bin of flip-flops and slippers near the door may encourage your family to switch out their shoes.
Refresh High Traffic Areas
Invest in some heavy duty cleanings a few times a year by either renting a machine or paying a professional to do it. In between those cleanings, treat high traffic areas with a powdered or foam carpet cleaner. This will take care of those gray, matted trails that appear in front of your sofa or from the sofa to the kitchen.
Interior doormats catch dirt and debris from people’s shoes to prevent it from being tracked into the house. They only work if they are clean, though. The more dirt that builds up, the less dirt it will stop from coming into your house. Check the care instructions and if you can, toss it into the washing machine and dryer using the gentle cycle on warm and tumble dry low. If the mat is unable to be washed, just use a vacuum. Vacuum the front of the mat, then flip it over and vacuum the back even if it is plastic or rubber backing. This will help loosen any stubborn, embedded dirt. Then flip it back over and vacuum the front aga

It’s inevitable; your carpet is going to become dirty, no matter how hard you try to keep it clean. Your kids and pets, along with those who forget to take off their shoes, track dirt into your home.
While this may initially go unnoticed, when enough grime gets into your carpet it can become hard to hide. If you don’t have a steam cleaner, and can’t afford to rent one, there are ways to clean carpet by hand. Here are five tips for how to clean carpet by hand without a machine.
How To Clean your Carpet
Carpet is a popular flooring choice because it adds an air of warmth and is so soft underfoot. It’s also an excellent option for allergy sufferers, as carpet fibers can hold on to allergens, reducing the amount of dust in the air. However, dirty and stained carpeting won’t improve the looks of your home, nor will it help with your resale value or getting your security deposit returned. That’s why it’s important to know how to clean carpet properly.
How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?
When it comes to routine maintenance, you should clean high-traffic areas once or twice a week, assuming you live in an active home. For areas with less use, every other week should suffice.
Everyday Carpet Cleaning Tips
You’ll need two things: a vacuum and baking soda.
Lightly sprinkle the baking soda on your carpet before you vacuum to neutralize any unpleasant odors. Additionally, address any spills or stains as soon as they happen to prevent them from setting in and ruining your carpets.
Deep-Cleaning Carpet Tips
There are four main types of carpeting that you’ll find in a home: Berber, nylon, olefin or wool. When determining how to clean your carpet, you need to know which material you’re working with. The material will decide what products you use and which solutions should be avoided at all costs. There are two methods for cleaning a carpet.
- Using a carpet-cleaning machine
You can rent professional-grade carpet cleaners at many grocery or hardware stores. The machine should be labeled with user instructions, as well as the recommended cleaning products. Before cleaning your carpet with a machine, you need to do three things:
Make sure you’ve properly budgeted the time to clean your carpet and let it dry thoroughly. (You’ll probably need a full weekend.)
Check to be certain that the machine and product you select are safe to use on your carpeting.
Perform a spot test on a small inconspicuous area. Let this dry completely before cleaning all of your carpet so you can ensure there won’t be any discoloration or other damage.
- Calling a professional carpet- cleaning service
If you’re not certain what material your carpeting is made of, it’s a good idea to call a professional like ServiceMaster Clean. After all, carpet isn’t something you can easily replace if it’s ruined by the wrong cleaning agent. Better to be safe than sorry.
A carpet-cleaning professional will be better able to determine what your carpet is made from and find a product that will be less likely to result in damage.
Unfortunately, there’s no simple DIY hack for a detailed carpet cleaning. However, you can get your DIY fix by learning how to clean area rugs at home.
Carpet spotting is a method used to remove carpet stains. Getting stains out of carpets can range from easy to difficult and time consuming depending on the type of stain. A carpet stain can reappear after some time even when cleaned properly cleaned. Thankfully there are products and techniques that enhances carpet stains removal.
https://multi-clean.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/spilled-coffee.jpgBeverages with dark dyes can be tough to remove from carpets. Various juices, wines, colas, and coffees are common causes of carpet stains. The compound responsible for their dark colors is called Tannins. This is a natural substance found within many plant based foods and beverages.
Directly targeting tannins with carpet spotting aids in an efficient stain removal. Multi-clean’s recommended product for beverage cleaning is called X-ray. This is a hydrogen peroxide cleanser aimed to eliminate tannins while deodorizing carpet fibers.
Begin blotting from the outside of the stain to avoid spreading. Blot the stain as much as you can with a dry white cloth. Spray the stain with a spotter. Use a carpet brush to work the cleaner into the carpet. Wet vacuum the stain. Repeat this process until the color of the stain is not visible.
https://multi-clean.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/carpet-wicking-subfloor.jpg Even if the stain is no longer visible, there is a chance of if reappearing. The return of a carpet stain can lie in the backing of the carpet.When the stain is removed, underneath may be liquid that can not be seen. After some time it can rise to the carpet’s surface, reappearing as the stain that was once removed. Once this happens, dampen the stain first and repeat common practice carpet spotting method. Visit Multi-Clean’s Carpet Care website for more information on products and carpet cleaning techniques.
Tamp: Using a small spotting brush, tamp the area where the cleaning fluid has been applied. This provides the agitation needed to work the cleaning fluid into the face yarns. Tamping means to tap the brush up and down on the fibers. This is preferred to rubbing the fibers with a brush or towel because it minimizes the chance of damage to the face yarns. Certain fibers and construction can fluff or pill if rubbed. This is particularly true of velvet plush construction.
Wait: Remember the second T in T.A.C.T. Time is an important asset in attacking spots. The cleaning chemicals take time to work. Don’t get impatient at this point. Give the chemicals ample opportunity to do their job. Solvents attacking oily stains will need more time (3-5 minutes) to do their work.
Blot: Using a clean, white cotton cloth (or disposable wiper) blot the spot. If there is a discoloration you should see the color start to transfer to the towel. That is your sign that the spot is “moving” to the towel.
Rinse: It is important to remove the chemicals adhering to the carpet fibers since no one can predict the outcome if left on too long. When a person washes their hair, they always rinse the shampoo out since leaving it in would leave the hair matted and attracting soil. So is the same concept with carpet fibers. If you have an extractor, use the hand tool to rinse the area with clear water. If not, small spots, use a squirt bottle to apply water and then blot it up with a towel. Make sure the backing can withstand the amount of water or other fluids in this operation.
Your comments and questions are always welcome. I hope to hear from you soon. Until then, keep it clean…
FINDING a carpet- cleaning service is as easy as looking for the letter ”C” in the Yellow Pages. But finding a carpet-cleaning method that works for you might not be so simple.
”There are five different carpet-cleaning methods in use today,” said Kathryn Sellers, spokeswoman for the Carpet and Rug Institute, an industry advocacy organization based in Dalton, Ga. ”All five work, as long as the person doing the cleaning knows what he’s doing.”
Ms. Sellers explained that the five methods include hot-water, dry or foam extraction; rotary shampoo and the absorbent-pad method.
The hot-water-extraction method — what most people mean when they say they are having their carpets ”steam cleaned” — uses a machine that sprays a hot detergent solution onto the carpet, and then immediately vacuums it out.
The drawback to the hot-water method, Ms. Sellers said, is that if it is not done right, the carpet and padding can get soaked, thereby providing a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Also, she said, if too much detergent is used, or if all the detergent is not removed, the carpet will get dirtier sooner. Detergent left in a carpet, she said, serves as a magnet for new dirt.

With the dry-extraction method, on the other hand, a powdered detergent compound is brushed into the carpet with specially designed machines. Soil particles in the carpet bond to the chemicals and are removed by vacuuming.
The foam-extraction method, Ms. Sellers said, employs the use of a foam instead of dry chemicals and the foam is vacuumed out of the carpet while it is still wet.
With the rotary-shampoo method, she said, the cleaning solution is pushed into the carpet by a machine that uses rotating brushes to work the solution into the fibers. The resulting dirt-filled foam is then removed by wet vacuuming.
Finally, Ms. Sellers said, there is the absorbent-pad, or ”bonnet,” method. With this method, she said, chemicals are sprayed into the carpet fibers and after they have had a chance to work their magic by percolating the dirt up to the surface, the chemicals are removed by a machine with a large round absorbent spinning pad like the one on the bottom of a commercial floor buffer.
In the wrong hands, however, the spinning pad can turn your deep-pile carpet into a puckered moonscape. ”The absorbent-pad method should be used only by a properly trained cleaning professional,” Ms. Sellers said.
And Phil Manwarren is just such a man.
”Our cleaning method is so different from steam-cleaning and shampooing that it isn’t even funny,” said Mr. Manwarren, the owner of the ChemDry Northeast franchise in Clarks Summit, Pa.
With the ChemDry method, he said, the cleaning solution is sprayed onto the carpet where it begins to bubble, thereby ”emulsifying” the dirt and lifting it to the surface.
”It’s like using club soda to get a stain out of your shirt,” Mr. Manwarren said, explaining that for stains in the carpet, the ChemDry company has a whole array of spot removers.
”We have specialized spotters for just about every stain under the sun,” Mr. Manwarren said. ”And the best thing about our system is that we use about one-tenth of the moisture used with steam-cleaning and shampooing. And that means your carpet will be dry in one hour instead of 10.”
Mr. Manwarren said that while prices vary among ChemDry franchisees, his charge averages around 20 cents a square foot.
Of course, not everyone shares Mr. Manwarren’s enthusiasm for carbonated chemical carpet cleaning.
”Chemically cleaning your carpet is like eating spare-ribs and then using a towelette to clean your hands,” said Mel Land, regional sales manager for Environmental Cleaning Systems, a carpet-cleaning company in Valley Stream, N.Y. ”No matter how long you rub, there’s always a little grease left. A hot, wet towel works better and soap and water works best.”
Mr. Land said that when his company cleans a carpet it uses a combination of the rotary-shampoo method and the hot-water-extraction method. When using those methods, he said, it is critical to apply only enough moisture to clean down to the bottom of the fiber, but not so much that the carpet backing or pad gets soaked. He also acknowledged that wet cleaning takes longer to dry than chemical cleaning.
”It should take eight or 10 hours for the carpet to completely dry,” Mr. Land said, adding that drying can be accelerated by opening the windows and using fans to circulate the air or by turning on central air-conditioning if that is available.
Most carpet-cleaning companies — including his — will not move furniture, he said, but they should always put plastic pads or foam disks under furniture legs to protect both the furniture and the carpet itself while the carpet is drying. And he cautioned consumers to beware of companies that advertise ”bargain rates,” which may not be bargains at all.
”You’ll see ads where they say they charge $7.99 a room for steam-cleaning,” he said. ”Then you find out that if you want soap included, it’s going to cost you an extra $2, and if you want a ‘deep-cleaning’ or shampoo, it will cost another $2 on top of that.”
Mr. Land said that his company charged about 15 cents per square foot for shampooing and steam extraction.
It is also possible, of course, to clean your carpet yourself.
”We’re finding more and more homeowners renting or buying commercial-grade machines for use in the home,” said Vince Marchetti, president of Cherokee Equipment, a carpet-cleaning machine distributor in West New York, N.J. ”You can save a couple of hundred dollars a couple of times a year by cleaning your own carpets.”
Mr. Marchetti, who provides in-the-home demonstration and training for customers who purchase his machines, said that if a homeowner is careful, he or she can get the same results with a $600 machine that a professional carpet-cleaning company can get with machines that cost as much as $4,000. In most cases, he said, homeowners will rent or buy steam-extraction machines that have a sprayer and a triangular-shaped plastic wand at the end of a hose that is used to vacuum up the solution as it passes through the carpet fiber.
”The key to getting your carpet clean is pre-treatment,” he said. Pre-treatment, he explained, is generally needed to remove individual stains and soiled areas from a carpet. ”Pre-treating your carpet is like pre-soaking your dishes. It allows the cleaning solution to eat through the caked-on dirt.”
Once stains have been addressed, Mr. Marchetti said, the carpet should be cleaned using the ”aggregation” approach — that is, by pushing and pulling the cleaning wand over the same area several times, making sure to finish up by extracting as much moisture from the carpet as possible.
carpet cleaning methods at homeMs. Sellers, of the Carpet and Rug Institute, added one note of caution for do-it-yourselfers: ”Most homeowners think that if a quarter-cup of cleaning solution is good, then a half-cup is better,” she said. ”That is human nature, and it is totally incorrect. It’s one of the main reasons we don’t actively encourage do-it-yourselfers.”
clean cleaner,7 Tips You Must Know Before Hiring Carpet Cleaning Service
While it might be difficult to clean a carpet on your own, you might not find it worthwhile to purchase a new one each year because the old one has stains or dirt you cannot get rid of. A good idea would be hiring a professional carpet cleaning service provider who is capable of handling the task effectively. Below are some guidelines you might need whenever you need to hire a carpet cleaning service .
Start with recommendations and referrals from friends
If you have not hired a carpet cleaning service before or you are new to Singapore and have not yet familiarized with the best providers, it would be easier and convenient to consider recommendations from trusted friends. Ask them to pinpoint a company which is capable of providing quality services at an affordable price. This will give you a head start on what to do next. You can start researching into the best companies by reading reviews from previous companies or calling contact references if any are provided.
Look into the carpet cleaning methods used by the company
This is just another way of saying that you need to know what tools and chemicals the company will use to clean your carpet. Are they effective and do they have any damage to the fabric. In some cases, a homeowner might prefer eco-friendly chemicals if they are environmental enthusiasts.
Licensing and insurance
It is important to check whether a company has the required licensing needed to run operations. Besides being proof of competence, you do not want to hire a company which runs illegally and end up in undesirable situations. An insured company ensures peace of mind should an accident occur during the cleaning process.
Experience is one of the factors you should never overlook whenever you need to hire a service provider. A company which has been in the business for a long period of time is good at what it does and capable of troubleshooting common problems should any occur.
A company which is dedicated to serving its clients is obviously better than one which neglects them. Before hiring a carpet cleaning service provider check to see if their customer care support desk is responsive. The time it takes for them to complete the task is important too.
How well the staff behaved?
Staff might be exceptionally skillful in cleaning but that does not make it pass the professionalism test. A good company should employ polite staff which does not spy on your house or pick things from it when working. Again, reviews from previous customers will help you decide if you want a particular company in your home or not.
Although most people tend to prioritize price, this should be the last thing you look at. You want affordable services but a company should not necessarily compromise on quality just because they clean your carpet at the cheapest rate. Consider a service provider with ideal charges for what they offer.
Dyson V7 Motorhead
The best cordless vacuum for most people
Strong enough to replace a good plug-in vacuum for most carpet cleaning, with enough battery life for most apartments and some small houses.
Or, if you’re interested in a cordless stick vacuum as a backup for quickly cleaning up small messes, get whatever is cheap.
Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
Good performance, great price
For quick pickups or good-enough apartment cleaning, the Hoover Linx is the sturdiest cordless vac for the money.
A low-effort robot for keeping tidy: Best robot vacuum
If you’re interested in a robot vacuum, and willing to pay for it, then hell yeah, get one. They aren’t perfect (as we explain in our guide to the best robot vacuums), but they will help to keep floors tidy with very little effort and oversight on your part.
People who have pets stand to gain the most from robot vacuums. Nothing else will keep up with hair, kibble, and litter as reliably as a machine that runs automatically and never gets lazy. Furry housemates or not, most people are surprised at how much junk these things collect. Some great models aren’t even that expensive compared with human-driven vacuum cleaners. And all you really have to do is hit start (or set a schedule), occasionally rescue the bot when it gets stuck somewhere, and empty the dust bin. You’ll need to change the filters and detangle the moving parts from time to time, but that’s the same with any kind of vacuum.
Robots are nowhere near as strong as any of the human-driven vacuums we recommend. They also can’t clean carpets with long fibers, or anything that’s not the floor (no stairs, no car, no couches). If your pet has loose bowels, the bot might smear its poop everywhere. And some people end up disappointed in their bots because they expect them to act smarter. Our advice is to try not to watch these things work.
Eufy RoboVac 11S
A quiet, nimble, affordable robot vacuum
The easiest robot to own. It runs quieter and fits under more furniture than any other robot vac, and thanks to its nimble, persistent nav system, it will rarely need your attention. Great for keeping floors tidy in most homes.
iRobot Roomba 960
Bigger homes, better cleaning
The Roomba 960 has the best of what bots can offer: better carpet cleaning, smarter navigation for larger spaces, and smartphone control.
iRobot Roomba i7+
The best robot vac money can buy
A self-emptying dustbin and the ability to clean specific rooms on command make this the easiest, most satisfying Roomba to use—if you’re willing to pay for it.
A strong, versatile handheld vacuum: Best handheld vacuum
If you don’t opt for a cordless vacuum, it’s handy to have a little handheld vacuum for small messes. As we cover in our guide to the best handheld vacuum, a cheapish one is fine for occasionally tidying up. They can suck up small spills on floors and countertops easily.
For pets: Best vacuum for pet hair
Any vacuum can clean up pet hair—pet owners don’t need to buy a special model to do the job well. Anytime you see “animal” or “pet” in the name of a vacuum, it means only that the model comes with a tool that makes it easier to clean pet hair off upholstery.
One exception to consider: If you have a lot of hairy pets, like four golden retrievers or a half-dozen furry cats, you might want to avoid bagged vacuums entirely. Pet hair fills bags quickly, and the cost of replacing them so frequently can add up.
Although it’s true that any vacuum can clean up your pet’s hair, none can get the job done better than a robot vacuum. If you want to read more on why, check our post on the best vacuum for cleaning up pet hair.
We’ve done hundreds of hours of research and testing on vacuum cleaners over the past five years, searching for the best ones to fit all kinds of living situations and lifestyles. This guide will help you figure out the right kind of vacuum to suit your home, whether it’s a small apartment or a big Victorian, covered with shag carpets or left with bare wood floors, or filled with kids and pets.
Affordable, effective, comfortable, reliable: Best bagless upright vacuum
If you want a good vacuum cleaner—nothing fancy—and you don’t mind replacing it in five years, we recommend a bagless, plug-in upright vacuum. (We have a couple of recommendations in our guide to the best upright and canister vacuums.) A bagless upright vacuum that costs between $150 and $200 is a great fit for most American (and Canadian) homes, with any number of floors, any number of pets, and almost any kind of wood, tile, or carpeting.
The best bagless uprights are about 80 percent as effective as the very strongest plug-in vacuums, for about 40 percent of the price. They’ll last much longer than the total cheapo models. Compared with cordless vacuums, they cost half as much, clean better, and can last at least twice as long (about five to seven years). They tend to be better designed than similarly priced canister vacuums, and are much more convenient than bagged vacuums, which also have recurring costs and don’t offer much upside at this price
Buy a bagless upright vacuum if:
You want quality on a budget: The good ones are reasonably priced, have no recurring costs, and should last for at least five years.
Buy another type of vacuum if:
You have a small home with a cozy floor plan: A cordless vacuum will almost definitely be easier to use in a layout like this—no cords to get caught on corners.
You’ll skip cleaning because you need to unravel the cord: Cordless vacuums and robot vacuums are a whole lot more convenient to use. No shame!
Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV352
Best bagless upright vacuum
This bagless upright has the flexibility and cleaning chops to make most people in most homes totally happy. It should last about five years, which is solid for the price.
Deepest cleaning, longest lasting: Best canister vacuum
If you like your floors to stay very clean, and you’re willing to pay big bucks for a vacuum that will last a decade or more, get a high-end canister vacuum. You won’t regret making the investment.
They’re some of the best vacuum cleaners thanks to their powerful motors, tightly sealed ductwork, and cleverly engineered cleaning heads that can rise or fall depending on the length of the carpet. You can expect them to last for at least a decade, usually longer, with minimal maintenance apart from replacing the bags and filters and occasionally clearing tangles and clogs. And because they’re bagged vacuums with great filtration, they’re particularly appropriate for people in households where clean air is necessary to mitigate allergies and asthma.
Buy a high-end canister vacuum if:
You want something that will last for a long time: They don’t make most stuff like they used to, but great vacuums are an exception to that rule.
You want the very best performance: The very best vacuum cleaners are the ones that suck the most dust out of all kinds of carpets, and that’s what these are designed to do.
You have allergies or asthma: Their bags and tightly sealed airways are excellent at removing allergens and irritants from your home. For bonus points, add a HEPA filter.
Buy another type of vacuum cleaner if:
You don’t like the design: Some people just can’t get comfortable dragging a little pod behind them while they clean—especially with a cord attached to it.
You don’t want the responsibility: You need to put in some work—remembering to buy bags and filters, cleaning tangles and clearing clogs, taking it to the shop every few years for maintenance—to get your money’s worth.
You have lots of hairy pets: Fur fills up the bags quickly. Get a bagless vacuum if you’re worried about the cost of bags getting out of control.
Miele Compact C2 Electro+
Expensive, but the absolute best vacuum cleaner
One option out of many excellent models in the lineup, this nimble, near-invincible canister vac is just about the best you can get in cleaning, filtration, and quiet operation.
Cordless convenience, strong-enough cleaning: Best cordless vacuum
A cordless vacuum cleaner can be a life-changer if you live in an apartment or smaller house with a cramped floor plan. That’s because there’s no cord to get caught on any corners, and they tend to be lighter and easier to steer than most plug-in vacuums.
But even if you live in a bigger home, a cordless vacuum can be a fine choice. It’s easier to keep your floors clean when you don’t have to unravel a cord and find an outlet every time you see some crumbs or cat hair. Our favorite models have enough battery life to clean most homes in a single pass if you need to, but most people who own a cordless vacuum cleaner don’t clean in big, whole-house sessions—they just tidy up as needed because it’s relatively effortless to grab the vacuum and go.
Most cordless vacuums also double as handheld vacuums now, so you can buy one vacuum to clean both your floors and your car.
Buy a cordless vacuum if:
You live in a small apartment or house: It’s much easier to clean a cramped floor plan when there’s no cord getting caught.
You don’t want to deal with a cord: It takes just a few seconds to grab your cordless vacuum and start cleaning—no obstacles, no excuses!
Buy another type of vacuum if:
You need great cleaning power: Even the strongest cordless vacuum cleaners can’t pick up fine, dusty debris (including most allergens) anywhere near as well as an affordable plug-in vacuum.
You want the most value for your money: Good cordless vacuums cost twice as much and last half as long as a good bagless, plug-in upright vacuum.

The Oreck Commercial ORB55MC Commercial Orbiter Floor Machine is designed to simplify the task of cleaning both your property’s hard and carpeted floors. The brush moves in random directions as you move, thus avoiding the risk of leaving frustrating lines and swirls across your carpeted rooms. Furthermore, the ORB55MC is exceptionally simple to set up and operate and doesn’t require any professional advice prior to starting.

This machine is a wonderful multi-purpose machine which is inexpensive compared to some models. It is also lightweight yet incredibly durable, with a long cord to allow for cleaning around the property without having to frequently move. However, the fact that the machine is corded means that it is not easily portable. It should also be noted that the accessories don’t come along with the model and have to be purchased separately.
The Hoover carpet cleaner makes quick work of cleaning carpets and upholstery. To keep your Hoover carpet cleaner operating efficiently, you should clean the machine at least once a month depending upon how much you use it. Cleaning the Hoover carpet cleaner requires no tools because the parts snap on and off. There is no need to use harsh chemicals when cleaning the Hoover carpet cleaner. A simple damp rag is all that is necessary.
Turn off the Hoover carpet cleaner and unplug the power cord from the outlet. Locate the button on the front of the handle that locks the solution tank to the machine. Press the button in with your finger and pull the solution tank away from the side of the unit.
Push the release button on the front of the handle below the button for the solution tank. This releases the recovery tank on the opposite side of the machine. Pull the handle on the recovery tank to remove it from the machine.
Press the two release latches on the top of each tank to remove the tank caps. Empty the tanks into a laundry sink. Rinse both tanks with warm water.
Lift the nozzle on top of the cleaner head where it meets the handle. Slide the nozzle off of the cleaner head. Wipe dirt and debris off the nozzle and the front of the cleaner head with a damp cloth. Tilt the cleaner so that the front of the head is off the floor. Slide the nozzle upward over the channel from below the cleaner head until it snaps into place.
Tilt the Hoover carpet cleaner on its back with the handle on the floor. Grab the brushes at both ends and pull them out of the cleaner head. Rinse the brush assembly under cold water to remove dirt and debris.
Align the end tabs on the brush assembly with the slots on each side of the cleaner. Align the post on the center of the assembly with the slot in the center of the cleaner. Push the brush assembly into the cleaner head firmly until it locks into place.
Locate the brush filter on the bottom of the cleaner head. The filter is just below the second brush from the right on the bottom of the head. Pull the filter frame out of the head with your fingers until it stops. Wipe dirt and grime from the filter with a damp cloth and push it back into the cleaner head. Store your Hoover carpet cleaner until you are ready to use it again.
Carpet Cleaners work similarly to vacuums. Their purpose is to inject and extract cleaning solution from your carpet, and hopefully carry with it any soil or grime you’re trying to target. Before you begin, UNPLUG your machine from the wall.
Remove or drain any solution tanks from the machine, we don’t want any spills.
Turn the machine over and locate the brushes.
These are a bit trickier than vacuums to lay flat, so you may have to prop it a bit to hold it steady. The brushes are what agitates the solution into the carpet fibers as well as fluffing them back up. We want them as clean as possible. Some machines allow the brushes to be easily removed, some require a screwdriver. Either way, the object here is to remove any collected fuzz from the brushes. If you’re not able to remove them, just make sure they are fuzz free.
Clean and wipe the underside.
Scrape away any gunk that’s collected around the brush area and give it a wipe with a Clorox Wipe, or a rag dampened with diluted all purpose cleaning solution. Pay special attention to the spray nozzle or solution distribution head. That needs to be clear or the cleaning solution won’t dispense. Replace any pieces you removed and stand the cleaner back upright.

Features to Consider in Good Steam Cleaners for Cars
Buying a car steam cleaner is slightly different from buying the same machine for household use. Here are the main things you need to keep in mind when buying a car steam cleaner:
Auto Use — The steam cleaner should be suited for use in vehicles. Some floor steam cleaners are not suited for cleaning delicate car interiors.
Steam Pressure — There should be adequate steam pressure to actually dislodge dirt, grime, and great from surfaces of the car.
Price — Most commercial steam cleaners are too expensive for individual users. Affordability is also an important aspect that determines which steam cleaners are actually worth the value.
With the above in mind, here’s are our short reviews for the best steam cleaners for cars you can consider buying:
McCulloch MC1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner
Design & Performance
The McCulloch MC1275 is a pressurized steam cleaner that doesn’t need any chemicals. More importantly, it comes with 18 accessories. Attachment includes nozzles and scrub pads suited to use on large surfaces. There are brushes for removing grease and grime too.
The steam cleaner is well suited for use on various car surfaces like leather, fabric, rubber, and glass. You can use the machine additionally on most types of floors, counters, windows, and appliances. The cleaner heats up as quickly as in 8 minutes. You can expect a steam that can last up to 45 minutes. The steam is continuous, which means you don’t have to keep on pressing the steam button.
The steam cleaner has a rather powerful jet nozzle to dislodge dirt and dust. The machine has a large water tank that can hold up to 48 ounces of water. This steam cleaner is powerful and is perfect for chemical-free cleaning. The downsides are quite minor. Don’t expect this steam cleaner to work quietly. It can be quite loud.
Another downside though is that the attachments are not designed particularly for autos. So when cleaning sensitive painted surfaces, car owners should take care. You can fill this steam cleaner with regular tap water. The machine will heat up the water to over 200 degrees, which is hot enough to kill the most common types of bacteria and germs.
Overall, this is a great car steam cleaner that delivers a pressurized steam. The multi-use steamer is good for the many types of surfaces on cars. Plus, the steam cleaner is backed by a 1-year guarantee.
Wagner 0282014 915 On-demand Steam Cleaner
Design & Performance
This Wagner steam cleaner offers what’s call “on demand” steam control. That means you can get a continuous steam without pushing on a button. Steam control is literally at your fingertips. Keep in mind that this is a pressurized steam cleaner. It even comes with a wallpaper plate to remove old wallpaper. Removing hard-set stains is super easy.
Car owners should be aware that this steam cleaner is designed to use on large surface areas. It’s great if you have big seats. The machine comes with a flexible and versatile hose that’s eight feet long. It’s excellent for getting the steam into nooks and corners of the vehicle. The cleaner includes extension tubes and other accessories to improve work efficiency. As a result, steamer is near perfect for chemical-free disinfecting.
The steam cleaner is non-toxic and doesn’t leave any residue behind. You can use it on car glass without worry too. Unlike most steam cleaners, this one works on car tires as well. When the car is cleaned, you can use this to clean your garage too. So the steamer offers two modes of cleaning. There’s the continuous steam option for tough jobs. There’s also an intermittent steam option for quick cleaning, which is suitable for deep cleaning of surfaces. The host of accessories it comes with makes it possible to clean varied surfaces.
While this steam cleaner is highly versatile, don’t expect it to be a miracle machine. It will clean some surfaces well but others only moderately. One big issue is the power cord of the machine. The cable is quite short and may require an extension cord to use with the wall outlet.

DRIER. The Chem-Dry carpet cleaning process uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, so carpets dry within hours, not days. This means you and your family can get back to enjoying your home sooner. See a full comparison of Chem-Dry vs steam cleaning to see all of the benefits of choosing Chem-Dry carpet cleaners.
CLEANER. Our primary carpet cleaning solution is carbonated and, just like club soda, as it penetrates deep into your carpet’s fibers, it lifts the dirt from deep within your carpets so it can be whisked away with our powerful extraction equipment giving you the most thorough clean. And there is no dirt-attracting residue left behind, so carpets stay cleaner longer.
HEALTHIER.

We use an all natural, green-certified cleaning solution that does not contain any harsh soaps or chemicals and is completely safe and non-toxic for your family and pets. Additionally, an independent air quality lab found that our HCE method removes 98% of common allergens in your carpets and upholstery, and when a sanitizer is added, 89% of bacteria is removed for your indoor air*. That adds up to a safer carpet cleaning that is healthier for you, your family and your home.
We understand that you have a choice in carpet cleaning services. But not all carpet cleaning services are alike. To find out how big an impact a Chem-Dry cleaning can have on home health, we thought it would be helpful to measure how effective our cleaning process is in eliminating unhealthy and unwanted elements from your home. So we commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry carpet cleaner removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens such as dust mite allergens and pet dander from the carpets and upholstery we clean and found that, when adding sanitizer to our HCE carpet cleaning process, we removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets. With Chem-Dry carpet cleaner, you can breathe easier about the healthfulness of your home for your family.

When you have carpets and a busy house, the best rug shampooer is a must have item. Although having separate machines to vacuum and clean, buying a carpet shampooer will save you time and money in the long run.

Things to Consider for Carpet Cleaners
A new carpet cleaner is usually something which you rely on, especially around the important times of the year like Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the family coming to stay, having nice clean carpets makes the best impression and allows you to enjoy the holiday season worry free. What are the most important things you should think about before making a purchase?
The size of your rooms and carpets. This is often an important factor when buying a machine like this. You will need a cleaner which will do the job in the shortest time possible, leaving you more time to do the things you enjoy.
The color of your carpets. The color of your carpet is likely to determine how often you will need to clean it, the lighter the carpet the more frequently it will need to be cleaned.
How busy your house is. It stands to reason that the more people you have walking through your house the dirtier the carpet is going to get, but there is another reason for considering this when choosing the best carpet cleaner for your home. If you have a very busy household, with people coming and going all day the time it takes for the carpets to dry could become a deciding factor. Wet carpets will attract dirt more quickly, unless you can stop people walking on the carpets until they are dry you will need a cleaner which leaves the carpets almost dry.
If you have pets. Pets are often considered a part of the family, and so they should be. This means that your pet often has access to every part of the house and every carpet as well. Unless you have trained your dog or cat to wipe their paws as they enter the house, there is a good chance that they walk mud and dirt in every day. This is not the only problem with pets, they also shed hair! Finding pet hair everywhere can be frustrating, even vacuuming doesn’t always solve the problem and this is why many carpet cleaning manufacturers now make products specifically designed to remove the maximum amount of pet hair from your carpets. This is not the only reason to consider this, many carpet cleaners can become clogged with pet hair if it is not specifically designed for the job.
We all love to live in a clean house but what we don’t understand at times is the importance of a clean carpet. The reason behind this is simple. We don’t really see germs and dust hiding inside carpet and therefore, it is tough for our brain to understand that the carpet is a threat for our health. Fortunately, the consumer centric world has developed and now we have home carpet cleaners to clean dirty carpets. These cleaners are handy and most of them offer great value.

Note: To complement our thoroughly exhaustive carpet cleaning service, we offer professional-grade Scotchgard fiber protection.
Scotchgard is assured the be one of the best fiber protectors against re-soiling and staining. By resisting dry soil, less soil is able to bond to your carpeting, therefore more is picked up each time you vacuum. The stain protection afforded by Scotchgard is designed to keep “foreign dyes” such as the red dyes in Kool-Aid from penetrating your carpet fiber.
EIGHT REASONS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE PROFESSIONAL GRADE CARPET PROTECTOR APPLIED
- Reduces Permanent Stains – A great looking carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. Unprotected carpet doesn’t repel spillage as well as protected carpet. The protector will allow you to remove spots and spills more effectively, therefore helping you to avoid permanent staining.
- Helps save your traffic areas from becoming destroyed. Traffic area soil is very abrasive and cuts carpet yarns like a knife. This damaging soil can readily bond to an unprotected carpet. By applying a carpet protector, you will increase the life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet, the soils will release from the carpet pile much more efficiently.
- Make spots easier to remove. Many spots can be removed easily with just water or our neutral spotter provided at the conclusion of your carpet cleaning.
- Makes your next professional cleaning more effective. Having protector applied to your carpet will enhance your future, more soil will be removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.
- Carpeting that has been protected can help improve indoor air quality as many allergens cannot hold on to the fibers of your carpet and are easily removed during your vacuuming process.
- Helps avoid costly service calls. Although you want to call us to handle any spot you cannot remove immediately, carpet protector enables you to lift more spots than you could without a protector. You may be able to save a minimum charge by eliminating the spot.
- Your carpet will look better and last longer when it is protected.
- One-year guarantee. If we apply professional-grade carpet protector and you experience a spot you cannot remove using the professional-grade spotter provided, give us a call, and we will attempt spot removal at no cost to you. If we are unable to remove the spot, we will refund the price paid for the protector in the affected room. What could be fairer?

Why Buy a Carpet Cleaner When You Can Rent One?
Sure, you can find carpet cleaner rentals in most grocery and hardware stores, but the process is a pain. First, there is the rental cost, which isn’t too expensive. However, the low advertised price doesn’t pertain to larger rental machines, and the money you’ll spend doesn’t stop there.
Many stores require you to put down a deposit in addition to the rental price. You also need a form of identification and a credit card, which will be charged if you accidentally damage the cleaner.
These carpet cleaners are also hefty and large, so you must have a vehicle that is big enough to transport the machine back and forth to the store. Plus, you can’t immediately address stains before they set in like you can when you own a carpet cleaner. For all the trouble you have to go through, you only get to rent the cleaner for a day or two.
Carpet Cleaning Seems Difficult – Isn’t It Easier to Hire a Carpet Cleaning Service?
A carpet cleaning service will certainly save you time and effort, but it won’t save you money. If you think renting a carpet cleaner is cost-prohibitive, the price of hiring a carpet cleaning service is much higher. You can expect to spend as much as $75 per room unless the company charges by the square foot.
Either way, you can easily shell out half a grand to get your carpets professionally cleaned, and you have to deal with scheduling an appointment, making sure someone is at home while the technician is cleaning and watching strangers traipse through your home.
Residential carpet cleaners are easier than ever to use. Many of them have a divided tank or two tanks to keep the dirty water from contaminating the clean water. A lot of tanks also have a specially designed spout to prevent spills when you pour the water. There are also some models that actually mix the detergent, so you get the perfect water-to-formula ratio every time.
I’m Short on Storage Space – Where Would I Even Keep a Carpet Cleaner?
No matter how much storage space you have in your house, there is a carpet cleaner out there that is compact enough to fit. The best home carpet cleaner for you is one that is slim instead of boxy. In the product description, the manufacturer will list the shampooer’s dimensions, so you’ll know for sure whether you have room for that particular model.
Some cleaners even have a folding handle that cuts the height of the carpet cleaner in half when not in use.
Aren’t Carpet Cleaners Heavy? I Don’t Know If I Can Push One.
You don’t have to be a bodybuilder to push and maneuver a carpet cleaner. You can find cleaners that weigh 30 pounds or less. Some even weigh under 20 pounds. To help you push it, you’ll want the handle to be ergonomically designed. Look for a handle that is wide enough for both hands like a horizontally looped or T-bar handle. Ones with rubber grips or a vertical loop also make it easier for you to move the carpet shampooer across the floor.
My House Is Large – What Kind of Carpet Cleaner Should I Buy?
Obviously, your house has carpet; otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this guide. If your home is large or almost every living space is covered in carpet, the goal is to find a carpet cleaner that can do the job fast. The shampooer’s cleaning path should be wide to get as much of the floor scrubbed as possible in one pass.
A machine that can clean forward and backward also helps. The tank’s size matters too. The greater the tank’s capacity, the fewer the breaks you’ll need to take to refill and dump the water.
How Fast Does the Carpet Dry?
Long gone are the days when you had to steer clear of a freshly shampooed carpet for 24 hours. Manufacturers equip many carpet cleaners with components that quicken the drying time. Quite a few cleaners rely solely on extraction power. If the cleaner’s suction is strong enough, extraction drying works fine.
An even faster way to dry a carpet is by applying heat. Some models force hot air out of the cleaner head to shorten the amount of time it takes to dry a carpet to just a couple of hours.
Can Home Carpet Cleaners Remove Stubborn Stains?
Carpet cleaners for home use can completely eliminate stains if they have a brush made for the job. If stains are a big concern, look for a carpet cleaner with a brush that scrubs from all angles. This type of brush can clean every part of stained carpet fibers. Another excellent brush for stain removal is a spinning one that reaches deep into the fibers of your carpet, which prevents stains from reappearing when the carpet dries.
Besides the brush, features like a heating element that keeps the tank’s water warm will help the cleaner release stains. As far as cleaning formulas go, use a highly-concentrated solution that has oxygen boosters.
What If My House Has Carpeted Stairs?
Cleaning a set of stairs can be a challenge. To tackle this task, you need a carpet cleaner with a smartly placed lifting handle. If the cleaner has multiple lifting handles, that’s even better. The length of the power cord is also important because if it’s too short, you’ll have to stop shampooing to switch outlets. For efficiency, there are a couple of features that will make cleaning carpeted stairs easier.
A stretchable hose means less lifting and lugging, and then there are the attachments. Ideally, the shampooer should come with a crevice tool for edge cleaning and a wide stair tool for treads and risers.
What Features Are Important for Cleaning Messes Made by Pets and Children?
Hair and odors are the two biggest issues faced by pet owners. If you have pets, you need a carpet cleaner with a basket. Situated within the tank, this removable basket catches hair before it reaches the bottom of the reservoir, so you don’t inadvertently clog the machine.
Multiple-row bristle brushes are great for lifting hair, and odor-eliminating enzyme formulas can remove unpleasant smells.
Although you never know what kind of mess your child will make from one day to the next, spilled drinks, ground-in dirt and general grime are way up on the list. When you’re comparison shopping, pay special attention to any carpet cleaner that lets you spray extra spurts of cleaning solution.

Best Portable Spot Cleaner: Bissell 3624 SpotClean Professional
Upright carpet cleaners are great for cleaning large areas and rooms, but for tackling specific areas, upholstery (especially vehicle upholstery) and stairs, spot cleaners are much more practical and better suited for handling these types of tasks.
For spot cleaning, there is probably no better carpet cleaner on the market than the Bissell 3624 SpotClean Professional. Its lightweight and compact design allows you to easily carry it around as you move from stain to stain. It comes with two different brush tools – one 6″ brush and a smaller 3″ brush. The larger brush is ideal for cleaning stairs and rugs, as well as car interiors, and the smaller brush tool is designed to be used for especially stubborn or hard to remove stains.
The Bissell Spotclean Professional has a long 5′ flex hose that provides ample slack to get around furniture and reach into corners. Additionally, even though this portable carpet cleaner is fairly compact, it has a relatively large water tank, allowing you to do quite a bit of cleaning before needing to empty/refill the tank.
This machine won’t replace your upright carpet cleaner, but it’s a very useful appliance for people who want to clean small areas here and there in between major cleaning sessions.
Best Budget Model: Bissell 1622 PowerLifter Carpet Shampooer
If the other two carpet cleaning machines above are out of your price range, but you still want to get something that’s of decent quality and that won’t break down after only a few uses, then the Bissell 1622 PowerLifter is your best bet. At just under $100 (as of the time of this writing), it’s a bargain and is a great choice for those who just want to clean their carpets every now and then with minimal hassles.
The Bissell 1622 PowerLifter may be a relatively cheap carpet cleaner and it certainly doesn’t have all of the latest and greatest features of some of the more advanced units on the market, but it’s still a decent quality carpet cleaner that will suit most people’s needs.
This carpet cleaner uses what Bissell calls a “DriftLifter” brush, which has four rows of very stiff bristles that are arranged in a wavy pattern, and are designed to give the carpet a good scrubbing before lifting the dirt up and out of the carpet. And although it can’t compete with a high-end carpet cleaner like the Bissell Big Green, it does offer a fairly decent 6 amps of vacuuming power. Moreover, it’s fairly lightweight and easy to handle, and its relatively slender build allows for easy storage as well.
Pets make a real difference in our lives. They offer companionship, unconditional love, and endless hours of fun. However, they also offer shedding, drooling, accidents, and many other messes. When these happen on your carpets or soft furnishings it can be difficult to know the best way to remove them. One of the best answers is to invest in a carpet cleaner that is designed to deal with the various messes made by pets, including urine staining. But with so many different options available on the market it can be difficult to know which is best for your home. Our panel of pet experts has used their combined experience of cleaning up after pets to compile a list of the 10 best carpet cleaners for pets.
Best Pet Carpet Cleaner: Bissell 1986 ProHeat 2X Revolution
The Bissell 1986 ProHeat 2X Revolution is a great all-around carpet cleaner that utilizes a dual-tank system and an innovative water heating system Bissell calls Heatwave technology, which will maintain the temperature of the water that you pour into the clean water tank (up to 140 degrees). Using warmer water can give you a more thorough clean, so this is a useful feature that not many other carpet cleaners have.
Additionally, the Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution offers two different cleaning modes: Deep Clean and Express Clean. Deep Clean mode gives you a more thorough clean for when you need to tackle hard-to-remove pet stains or extremely dirt-ridden carpets and rugs. And when you want to just do a quick once-over on your carpets, you can use the machine’s Express Clean mode, which will leave your carpets dry in about one hour after you finish cleaning.
The ProHeat 2x Revolution uses a patented brush technology, which incorporates two brush rollers with 12 rows of bristles. This gives it tremendous deep cleaning power. Moreover, the machine also comes with a number of handy attachments including a 7′ hose and a Pet Stain Tool for working those ultra stubborn pet stains. And you can use it in conjunction with Bissell’s Deep Clean solution and anti-bacterial formula, both of which are included with your purchase of the carpet cleaner, to sanitize your carpets and rugs.
Rug Doctor 93146 Deep Carpet Cleaning Machine
The Rug Doctor 93146 is the “lite” version of the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3. Although it’s well designed and constructed, this is not a commercial-grade carpet cleaner, so its suction power isn’t quite as strong as its bigger brother. It does, however, have its advantages, the main one being that because it is lighter and more compact, cleaning with this carpet cleaner machine is less strenuous. It also takes up less storage space (the handle can even be collapsed to further reduce its size).
And like the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3, the Rug Doctor 93146 also uses a dual-tank system for easier refilling/dumping. Additionally, this machine comes with a long 28 ft. power cord, which is a big plus as it reduces the need to unplug/replug the cord. The Rug Doctor uses Dual Cross Action Brushes that incorporates 2 rows of bristles, allowing it to clean from multiple angles. For especially soiled areas on your floor, you can use the unit’s “Super Boost Spray” feature to give the spot a more thorough cleaning.
You’ll also like the fact that the machine comes with a solid 2 year warranty for added peace of mind. All in all, the Rug Doctor 93146 is a top-notch carpet shampooer and it’s one of the best professional grade carpet cleaning machines you can buy.
Best Value: Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner
If you’re looking to get the best “bang for your buck,” look no further than the Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub Deluxe. It’s one of the most versatile carpet cleaners around, and with a price of just under $150, we feel it’s an absolute bargain. This lightweight carpet cleaner weighs a mere 18 pounds, making it easy to carry up stairs. It also utilizes a “two tank” system in which one tank holds your water and solution and another holds your dirty water. What’s great about this machine is that it automatically mixes the water and solution for you, giving you just the right balance of each for optimal cleaning efficiency. Additionally, the tank has a nifty pour spout that allows you to conveniently empty the contents of the tank out into your sink.
The Hoover Power Scrub utilizes a set of counter rotating brushes that clean deep into your carpets, loosening up dirt and picking up pet hair along the way. It also dries your carpets using hot air, resulting in much quicker drying times. Furthermore, it comes with an 8′ foot hose and a number of different attachments, including a SpinScrub powered hand tool, a crevice tool, a stair tool and even a tool storage bag to keep everything neatly organized.
All in all, this is a terrific machine, and if you’re looking to get the most value for your hard earned money, then you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal than the Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub.
Bissell 86T3 Big Green Carpet Cleaner
The Bissell 86T3 Big Green is, in our opinion, the best carpet cleaner currently on the market. It is our top pick and we give it our highest recommendation. The Bissell 86T3 Big Green is a commercial quality carpet cleaner that has a very powerful motor to suck up dirt and grime from your carpets. It also has a second motor that powers its rotating cleaning brushes, which break up the dirt in your carpets before the machine sucks it up. These brushes clean in both forward and backward directions, allowing you to push and pull the machine as you clean. This feature not only saves you time, but you get a considerably better clean as it requires fewer passes.
Another great feature of the Bissell Big Green is that it has one of the largest water tanks of any carpet cleaner currently on the market. This is a significant advantage because a larger water tank means fewer trips to the sink to refill it. It also comes with a handy 9′ foot hose attachment that’s great for cleaning stairs and other hard to reach spots. The Bissell Big Green also dries faster as well due to the machine’s strong suction power.
The only potential drawback of this machine is that it’s a bit larger and heavier than some of the other models out there, but it’s still maneuverable enough that it shouldn’t be an issue for the vast majority of users. As far as cleaning power goes, the Bissell 86T3 Big Green simply can’t be topped. It attacks and removes stains and caked-on dirt like no other carpet cleaner out there.
Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 Carpet Cleaner Machine
The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 is another commercial quality carpet cleaner and is quite possibly the most well-known home carpet cleaner on the market today. And like the Bissell Big Green, it is an extremely effective cleaning machine. One of the reasons why is because it has a very strong 1.74 horsepower motor that gives it the ability to suck up even the most deeply embedded dirt and grime from carpets and rugs.
Additionally, the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 has brushes that vibrate, which enables the machine to loosen up caked-on dirt before vacuuming it up. Users will also like this carpet cleaner’s simple two tank system, which makes it easy to dump out the dirty water and refill the clean water tank. The Mighty Pro X3 comes with two accessories: a 12″ hose and an attachment for spot cleaning upholstery and stairs.
One major weakness of this carpet cleaner that consumers should be aware of is that, unlike the Bissell Big Green which brushes and suctions both when pushed forward and pulled backwards, the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 only does so when doing the latter. Also, at just under 40 pounds, this machine is certainly on the heavier side as far as carpet cleaners go, and some users may find that the machine’s size and weight makes it a bit unwieldy.
Having said that, however, keep in mind that the Mighty Pro X3 was built to last and it was designed for heavy-duty cleaning jobs that other, lesser carpet cleaners just can’t handle. Also, not many carpet cleaners come with a 5 year warranty like the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 does.
Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner – Best Carpet Cleaner For Mud
Rug Doctor might automatically be the name that comes to mind when looking for a carpet cleaner since you can rent them from big-box retailers and supermarkets.
This model, the red and gray Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner, though, can be purchased and become a permanent addition to your home cleaning collection.
This Rug Doctor boasts 75% more suction than other leading upright carpet cleaners. With its Dual Cross Action Brushes, every side of the carpet fibers gets clean, lending even more cleaning power to this 25-pound unit.
If you’re looking to clean very dirty spots of a carpet, perhaps a more heavy-traffic area, there is a new feature on this Rug Doctor, the Super Boost Spray. This feature allows you to increase the water and solution going to a particular area, which can help break up deeply ingrained dirt and mud.
If you have a particularly dirty spot, Rug Doctor also offers some of the best carpet cleaner solutions on the market for spot treating.
Some drawbacks are that the hose is the shortest of the list, listed at 7.7 feet, but with a 28-foot power cord, you can still reach far with this unit.
There is also no heated air dry, but with the superior suction power, the Rug Doctor does suck up most of the residual moisture. So, you won’t experience extended drying time.
The tank is also on the smaller end at 4 quarts, but you will be able to refill them very easy.
Like the previous models, there is also no water heater. So, if you want the extra cleaning power of hot water, you will need to physically add hot water instead of room temperature tap water.
This Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner lives up to the solid and trusted Rug Doctor name. Priced in the middle range, it does a great job on mud, stains and overall dirty carpets. The suction power really is superior to other brands, but there are some drawbacks that keep this Rug Doctor in the middle of the pack in terms of overall quality.
Hoover FH50220 – Ease-of-use Carpet Cleaner
Hoover SteamVac Max Extract Pressure Pro 60 FH50220 Carpet Washer – Best Carpet Cleaner For Cleaning StairsHoover is well-known and trusted brand name in vacuums and cleaning machines, and it delivers this blue and black carpet cleaner that is great for cleaning stairs.
Stairs and generally the most neglected carpet area in regards to cleaning, because let’s face it, no one wants to deal with the hassle.
This Hoover SteamVac Max Extract Pressure Pro does a great job with them!
At 22 pounds, it is lightweight compared to other carpet cleaner models and has a fairly long cord that will likely reach up to an entire flight of stairs. Combine the long cord with a 9-foot long hose, and you can get the entire flight of stairs done without having to unplug and lug the cleaner to the top of the stairs.
The Hoover SteamVac Max Extract Pressure Pro 60 will give you a great, deep clean. It has patented SpinScrub Technology that has 60 counter-rotating brushes to clean carpet fibers from every angle.
The strong suction and forced heated air features also allow for very fast drying carpets. While they will not be bone dry right away, you really can tell the difference in dry time compared to carpet cleaners that do not. The main reason for this is the Max Extraction part of the name. This carpet cleaner is fantastic for removing the majority of residual water in your carpets. If you have a company that drops by on short notice, this is the carpet cleaner for you!
This carpet cleaner also comes with the Smart Tanks System. This system has separate tanks for dirty and clean water, so you can clean, empty and fill them individually. They are also extremely easy to use and consumers have raved about the ease-of-use that this model boasts.
As great as this model is, there is a few drawbacks. There is only one attachment, which makes the Hoover a bit less adaptable than other models. The reservoir tank is also on the smaller end, so you will have to refill it often.
If you want a budget-friendly carpet cleaner that has much more upside than down, the Hoover SteamVac Max Extract Pressure Pro 60 is a great option. It is lightweight and maneuverable enough for stairs, but sturdy enough to tackle a large carpet cleaning job, while leaving your carpets fairly dry.
It really doesn’t matter how often you vacuum your carpets, you are not getting the best clean.
Fortunately, designated carpet cleaners exist to give you the deep clean that you are looking for. A carpet cleaner uses a combination of warm (or hot water), detergent and spinning brushes to remove old stains, new strain and deeply embedded dirt and grime from your carpets. It’s easy to know that purchasing a carpet cleaner will save you from costly “professional” carpet cleanings.
That is an entirely different question and one that needs its due diligence.
Carpet cleaners are not cheap, the better quality ones costly at least $100, with professional grade ones stretching up above $300, so you will want to make sure that you are well informed when it comes to purchasing one.
Bissell 86T3/86T3Q Big Green – Best carpet cleaner for deep clean
This gray, black and green Bissell really emanates the name “Big Green.” It is large, weighs in at 40 pounds, and is green! Aside from its less than sleek appearance, the Bissell Big Green is everything you want in a carpet cleaner.
The DirtLifter Powerbrushes that comes on the model is patented technology, which enables the Big Green to loosen and lift any deeply embedded dirt and grime from your carpets.
A newly added feature in this Big Green model and one that sets it above the competition is that this model can work in both forward and backward cleaning passes. This not only reduces your cleaning time, but it saves your arm muscles from double the passes! While some models have continuous flow, this model has a water trigger that needs to be held down to release the water. This gives you more control over the amount of saturation.
If you’re worried about dry time on this model, don’t.
Depending on temperature and humidity, the carpets cleaned by this unit actually take only 3 hours to fully dry, which is quick compared to other models.
The Big Green does this by directing hot air from the motors down the nozzle to heat the carpets. That, combined with superior suction power to suck the water back into the machine, means that you can have your carpets dry in no time.
The Bissell Big Green does lend some of its cleaning power to the use of hot water. But unfortunately, the Big Green doesn’t actually heat the water. You will need to add the hot water manually, but it’s worth the extra step for the clean that this carpet cleaner provides.
There are also some complaints that the unit is large and bulky, making it very difficult to carry up the stairs.
Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub – Carpet Cleaner with Best Features
This red and gray Hoover does live up to the trusted Hoover name. The Power Scrub is one of the best on the market for many reasons that we will get into.
Right out of the box, the Hoover Power Scrub is easy to figure out. Assembly generally takes fewer than 10 minutes (with a Phillips or flathead screwdriver handy) and the box even includes a bag to store the three different attachment tools in.
The one tool that will be the most useful to you, is the turbo brush. This little brush is great for scrubbing stairs or sports cleaning.
The other tools that come are large and medium-sized suction tools that are useful for cleaning up spills.
Also in the box, a crevice tool for getting those baseboards clean, and a bottle of the Hoover All-Purpose Carpet Cleaner.
When we get to the cleaning aspect, this Hoover does a great job. It is lightweight at 18.1 pounds without the water tank full, and more compact than other models, which makes it easy to maneuver.
The SpinScrub technology featured only on Hoovers lives up to the hype and provides 360 degrees cleaning on your carpet.
There is also a Force Heat feature that dries the carpet during the final rinse phase, so your carpets won’t be damp for as long.
Really, the only issues here are that the Hoover Power Scrub has a smaller reservoir tank than other models, so it will need to be cleaned more often. Also, the water can at times spray a bit uneven, so some parts of the carpet are damper than others.
This Hoover also only has a 2-year warranty, which is above average, but still less than the 5-year warranty that Bissell provides on the Big Green.
Hoover SteamVac with Clean Surge Carpet Cleaner
The Hoover New carpet shampooers SteamVac is one of the cheaperNew carpet shampooers machines that are out there, which a great jobs of cleaning your carpets.

The price if quite attractive as a single bottle will only cost around $10.

Just like all the other Bissell products, this carpet cleaner is quite cheap as well, costing only a little over $100. Considering that it is a carpet cleaning machine, this price is quite reasonable, even when comparing with some of the other products with pretty much the same features.

The shampooer does a good job of removing tough dirt and debris that are stuck on carpets and any other upholstery. It uses a hose system which can help with cleaning off places that are otherwise hard to reach. Apart from just getting the shampooer itself, the package comes included with 6 stair tools, 3 tough stain tools, and a deep cleaning formula as well, making this one of the best carpet shampooers in the market. Another reason to get this would be because of the two-year warranty that comes included with it, courtesy of Bissell.

Be sure that you thoroughly be aware of the pricing structure for your professional upholstery cleaning and be cautious about cold calls. The fact is that there are numerous room sizes available. The retail price should reflect total area or square footage from the rooms that happen to be cleaned.

Some companies is not going to let you know this immediately, but many of them charge fees when they have to go your furniture in order to clean your carpet. It will save you some money if you remove every one of the furniture yourself before they get there.
Ask any organization you are considering what method they use to clean carpets. Once they work with a portable cleaner, it could be less effective than having an extraction method. Which means that you should call somebody else if the stains you might have in your carpet appear to be they will need a lot of help.
Always compare rates prior to choosing a rug cleaning company to visit your house. Every company carries a different strategy to create a profit, and a few of them try and trick their potential customers. Be sure you have a firm quote at hand before choosing which company you may use.
Choose your carpet cautiously. Colour and texture from the carpet should play a crucial part within your decision but you must also find out more about the cleaning process. If you can, select a quality stain resistant carpet to eliminate stains easily instead of deciding on a high-maintenance carpet.
Delay until your carpet is entirely dry prior to move your furniture into the room. Doing it too quickly may cause additional injury to your carpet. The bottom of the furnishings may leave rust marks or another stains that your particular carpet cleaner may never have the ability to completely remove.
An incredible carpet cleaner will offer you a warranty for their services. If a company doesn’t offer any type of guarantee, you may want to consider getting a different one. Should you be unhappy using the results and need to enforce the guarantee, enable the company to try to fix the problem. Try to get your money back if they still cannot provide quality results.
Make sure that the business you employ to clean your carpets guarantees they can get down to the padding that lays beneath your carpets. Here is where most of the stains settle, so the best way to truly obtain the carpets clean is to penetrate this layer. If they can not guarantee it, you need to get a new cleaner.
You don’t want to rub a stain on your own carpet as it only penetrates the fibers more. Blot the stain instead. Follow this with water, vinegar, salt or some other natural cleaning substance that will absorb the stain. If you must, finish cleaning having a steam vapor cleaner that you’ve rented.
Even if your carpets do not look dirty, they probably are. Even if you vacuum every day, your carpet becomes soiled just from regular traffic and dirt gets trapped in the fibers. Try placing a white towel at the door. Keep it there to get a week and find out how dirty it will become. This will reveal that you need an expert rug cleaning company to clean up your floor.
Be sure and inspect the cleaning job finished with the company to make certain that they may be adequately cleaned. Call without delay if you notice any areas that do not seem to be cleaned properly. If you delay too many days, it’s not likely the problem is going to be resolved.
Rather than hoping that people won’t notice your stained carpet or covering it with throw rugs, consider hiring a rug cleaning company. By using these tips, you are certain to get the right one! Consider this article the next time you think about replacing all of your carpet for its stains!

You no longer have to hire a carpet cleaning company to restore your carpets to a like-new state. Home-use shampooers are becoming more commonplace and user-friendly. Like vacuums, carpet cleaners come in a range of sizes and styles, and each washer has a unique set of features to offer. With the right carpet washer, you can ensure that your carpets don’t become worn before their time.
However, it’s not enough to select a carpet washer with a bunch of bells and whistles. You also have to consider the size of your home and the demands of your lifestyle.
Why Buy a Carpet washer When You Can Rent One?
Sure, you can find carpet washer rentals in most grocery and hardware stores, but the process is a pain. First, there is the rental cost, which isn’t too expensive. However, the low advertised price doesn’t pertain to larger rental machines, and the money you’ll spend doesn’t stop there.
Many stores require you to put down a deposit in addition to the rental price. You also need a form of identification and a credit card, which will be charged if you accidentally damage the washer.
These carpet washers are also hefty and large, so you must have a vehicle that is big enough to transport the machine back and forth to the store. Plus, you can’t immediately address stains before they set in like you can when you own a carpet washer . For all the trouble you have to go through, you only get to rent the cleaner for a day or two. Carpet Cleaning Seems Difficult – Isn’t It Easier to Hire a Carpet Cleaning Service?
A carpet cleaning service will certainly save you time and effort, but it won’t save you money. If you think renting a carpet washer is cost-prohibitive, the price of hiring a carpet cleaning service is much higher. You can expect to spend as much as $75 per room unless the company charges by the square foot.
Either way, you can easily shell out half a grand to get your carpets professionally cleaned, and you have to deal with scheduling an appointment, making sure someone is at home while the technician is cleaning and watching strangers traipse through your home.
Residential carpet washers are easier than ever to use. Many of them have a divided tank or two tanks to keep the dirty water from contaminating the clean water. A lot of tanks also have a specially designed spout to prevent spills when you pour the water. There are also some models that actually mix the detergent, so you get the perfect water-to-formula ratio every time.
I’m Short on Storage Space – Where Would I Even Keep a Carpet washer?
No matter how much storage space you have in your house, there is a carpet washer out there that is compact enough to fit. The best home carpet washer for you is one that is slim instead of boxy. In the product description, the manufacturer will list the shampooer’s dimensions, so you’ll know for sure whether you have room for that particular model.
Some washers even have a folding handle that cuts the height of the carpet washer in half when not in use.
