A Guide Choosing Your Carpet Cleaning

The joys carpet cleaning! It’s not just you if you’ve ever been faced with a stain or odor that looks suspiciously similar to last week’s dinner more about the author. Carpets are notorious for collecting stains, especially when you have kids or pets.

Let’s take a deep dive into the wild carpet cleaning world, but without getting too wet. The right superhero is the answer to your specific disaster. What do you want? Batman with his gadgets and Superman, with his brute power?

First, let’s discuss what makes these machines tick. For the most part, these machines use water, a cleaner and some elbow grease to clean your carpets. Now, thanks to the advances in technology, we have options more suited for a sci fi novel than a living room. Heatwave technology? Dual-tank systems? Yes, please!

A portable spot cleaner or an upright model can be likened to deciding between two vehicles: a truck and a motor scooter. A scooter can clean a spot here and there quickly and easily, but try asking it to move around your entire apartment. Upright models can handle big jobs well, but they are not ideal for tight spaces.

You pet owners should gather around because this is for you. Some cleaners are designed for pet messes. These come with special brushes or formulas which tackle odors as well as hair. The priceless thing about them is that they’re just like your friend who keeps lint rollers around and doesn’t mind if you dog jumps all over them.

What do you choose? Manual or automatic mode? Automatic may be the best option for you. You don’t have to play Goldilocks by trying to adjust every single patch of carpet. It automatically adjusts the settings so you don’t even have to.

What about going green? Cleaners that use less water or energy can still make your carpets look great. The best part is that you can save money and help the environment at the same time.

Maintenance, yes we will talk about it. You need to clean the tanks and keep the brushes clear of any gunk to ensure that your machine will last as long or longer than that gym subscription you forgot cancel. Some models are easier to clean than others. Try to find a model that doesn’t require you pull out your tools every single month.

And lastly, don’t forget: investing in a carpet-cleaner is an investment into peace of heart (and clean shoes). While cheaper options may be appealing, think of the long-term. Quality cleaners can prevent headaches.

This is a quick crash course to help you choose the right carpet cleaning machine without requiring a Ph.D. in Carpetology. If you’re looking to remove stains, keep high traffic areas clean or tackle mystery stains, choosing the right carpet cleaner will mean one less thing for you to worry about.
