Having kids and pets can wreak havoc on carpeting, and regular vacuuming isn’t always enough to remove stubborn stains. Carpet cleaners farnborough help remove deep-seated dirt, leaving your home’s floors feeling softer and looking brighter. They’re also great for spot treating messes as they happen, tackling stains before they set in and keeping your carpeting looking fresher longer.
What are 3 basic styles of carpet?
The best carpet cleaners use a combination of hot water, cleaning spray, and brushes to break down stains and wash them away. They then extract the dirty water, leaving your carpets free of lingering residue and odors. According to Marilee Nelson, certified building biologist and founder of Branch Basics, it’s best to have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12-18 months (depending on the manufacturer and some even require it to uphold your warranty). But owning a quality portable carpet cleaner lets you clean your own rooms quickly and easily in between professional deep cleanings and tackle stains as they occur to keep your floors looking like new.
When shopping for a carpet cleaner, consider its size and tank capacity. Larger tanks allow you to treat larger rooms in one session without needing to empty and refill. Also look for a dual tank design that keeps the clean water and dirty water separate, so you don’t have to constantly swap them out.
