How To Shampoo A Carpet?

Carpet shampooing is a thorough session of carpet cleaning, which removes the mud, dirt and stain and also sanitizes the carpet by killing all the bacterias, moulds and parasites. Moreover, the misconception about carpet shampooing is limited to a carpet shampooing machine and sweeping it all over the carpet. Shampooing is not about just shampoo and shampoo machine before carpet shampooing one must prepare the carpet for shampoo cleaning. To do that you have to thoroughly vacuum the carpet and free it from all the dirt and debris.

In this article we’ve evaluated the carpet shampooing method, by following the advice you can do certain things such as carpet sanitization, carpet stain removal and professional carpet deep cleaning. All the things at once.

You Need Few Items In Order To Start The Cleaning.

  • A hot water extractor (You can either buy it or rent it)
  • A shampoo which is approved by CRI (Carpet & Rug Institute, Inc.)
  • Any stain remover spray.
  • A clean cloth.
  • And your ordinary vacuum cleaner.

Steps For Carpet Shampooing.

Step 1-

When you buy or rent the hot water extractor, make sure you go through manual and learn all the aspects of the machine. Once you know how the machine works, there will be less probability of any kind of error (“Play it safe”).

When you finish studying the machine, start the actual work. Remove all the furniture attached to the floor.

Step 2-

Clean the carpet using your vacuum cleaner, until you remove all the dust from it. When you clean the carpet from the vacuum cleaner, it’ll make the work easier for shampooing. Also, notice the stains spot and spray stain remover on the area. After that use a clean cloth to rub the area. Take your time and vacuum all the dirt closely.

Step 3-

Take out the hot water extractor, if you have studied it well. You’d know that it’s a two-chambered unit. One chamber contains clean water which is mixed with hot water & soap and the other one store the dirty water, which has been sucked back. The shampoo works better in hot water. The machine first throws the shampoo water and then quickly suck it. Strictly follow the manual, and fill the water tank as mentioned in the machine, filling the water too high or above normal level may distort the balance of shampoo and water, which may result in improper functioning of the extractor machine. Also, mix the shampoo as needed, adding too much of shampoo would leave carpet soapy, later it’ll attract more dirt.

Now, thoroughly run the extractor on the carpet, and slowly run it on every area of the carpet. Don’t rush while moving, or the extractor will not able to function accordingly and leave the shampoo residue.

Step 4-

Once you are done cleaning using shampoo, clean the dirt tank and fill again it with clean cold water. Run the extractor again, this time it’ll remove all the residue soap from the carpet. Now comes the final thing, turn on the fans and let the carpet get dry. And, when the carpet got fully dried, run the vacuum cleaner, so that rest of the dust is removed and you get a 100% clean new looking carpet, ready to suffer for you again.
