Spring cleaning? Cleaning your carpet is also part of this!

Okay, we still have a short winter period to go through, but after that spring will really start! Are you planning a major spring cleaning? Don't forget to clean your carpet. This may not be the first thing you will think of, but it is an important part of a clean home. Carpet cleaning is something that you can have done, but you can also do it yourself. In this article, we tell you more about it.

Clean your own carpet

Cleaning a carpet yourself is not impossible, but there is often more to it than you think. Below are some tips and advice.

Spray Extraction Machine

Spray Extraction Machine To clean your carpet yourself, you must first have the right equipment. The specialist often works with a spray extraction machine and these are also for rent. Make sure that you have a good one because if the spraying section does not spray regularly or if the suction section does not work properly, your carpet can become much too wet.

A well-functioning spray extraction machine can cost between 3000 and 20,000 euros and that is why they usually rent out cheaper machines. This is really a point of attention because if your carpet gets too wet it can start to smell and mold and then you are even further away from home.

Cleaning agents
Have you found a good spray extraction machine? Then it is important that you look for the right cleaning agent. Each carpet is made from a different material, so we recommend using appropriate cleaning agents. Before you start with the cleaning agent, it is best to test the product on an inconspicuous piece of carpet.

To work

Vacuum cleaner No crazy side effects from the cleanser? Then the next step is to thoroughly vacuum the carpet. The more thoroughly you do this, the better the result will be in the end.

It is better not to put the cleaning agent in the cleaning machine but in a separate pressure sprayer. Spray the product in even strokes over the carpet. The product often needs to take effect and that varies from a few minutes to 10 minutes, so always read the packaging carefully.

When the cleaning agent is on it, you can gently brush it in with a brush. It is also possible to use a single disc machine, but this does require some skill. These machines are also available for rent.

Have you rented a water vacuum cleaner or spray extraction? Then you now put warm water in the pressure sprayer and with this, you spray the carpet wet. Make sure that it does not get too wet. Too wet means more chance of mold formation and we don't want that!

Deep-pile carpet With the machine you immediately vacuum everything away. Immediately feel the carpet is it dry or slightly damp? Then you will be fine. Does the carpet feel wet? Then you have used too much rinse water. With this treatment, it is important that you proceed slowly and that you vacuum slowly so that you can remove as much of the rinse water as possible.
