I show the steps on how to clean a carpet with a hot water extraction machine.
Your carpet is on duty all day grabbing dust, dirt, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, smoke and other allergenic substances from the air.
Government studies have shown that people get sick up to 4 times more often when carpeting is removed from homes or work places.
So the key to a healthy home is keeping your carpets clean. Vacuuming is an important maintenance routine, but if you are not using fine particle bags or filters, you are putting the smallest particles back into the air.
The EPA stated that using a professional hot water carpet cleaner to steam clean a carpet will get a rug 1,500 percent cleaner than vacuuming.
Using a carpet cleaner traps dirt, dust, bacteria and dust mites into the hot soapy water to be sucked up by the vacuum action of a carpet cleaner. The result is much cleaner carpets and much cleaner air quality.
For cleaning stains on carpet, you can add spot and stain remover to a hot water extraction machine to pull up difficult stains.
