How to Deep Clean Your Carpets

 Carpet Deep Cleaning Instructions

 You will Need:
  • Deep Cleaner
  • Formula
  • Vacuum Cleaner
  • Hot water
  • 1-3 hours depending on room size 
  • Laundry Booster (optional)
  1. First make sure that you have the correct supplies for the job you are about to do,It is very important that you have the right tools. Without the proper tools you will most likely not succeed at getting your carpets clean and may even damage your property.
  2. Before you start vacuum your carpets throughly,this is one of the most important steps of deep cleaning your carpet. Use short slow strokes with a large area of overlap to get the carpets very clean.
  3. Prepare the deep cleaner by adding the hot water and formula to the tanks.If you have a stain that has not set yet DO NOT use hot water and instead use cold or warm water. Hot water can set the stain and make it impossible to get out in the future. For best results add a little laundry booster such as Oxy-Clean to the formula tank, this will make your carpets brighter and really give them that “Just Cleaned” look.
  4. Put the tanks in the machine and plug the machine in the outlet closest to the door. Go to the farthest point in the room from the door and start cleaning, Most rental machines only clean in the reverse direction so keep that in mind. For the home machines do a wet stroke forward followed by a wet stroke back then two dry strokes to ensure all of the water has been removed from your carpets.
  5. Continue to do this for the whole room until you are done.When you are done, dump the dirty water and clean the machine then, wait for your carpets to dry before walking on them again. As soon as they dry take that vacuum cleaner and vacuum like you did before you started. Deep cleaning pulls a lot of dirt up towards the surface and not all is collected, however, it is very easy though for your vacuum to pick up at that point. 

Shark Navigator Review

Shark Navigator

This vacuum is very well known and most people have strong opinions on it. On one hand, it claims to do all that a Dyson can and 1/3 the price and on the other, it has a radically different design and is not HEPA rated. No matter what your opinion on the vacuum is, the facts are that it does clean very well for the price, about as well as the Dyson DC33 in our tests. It does lack a few things that the Dyson has like auto-emptying top cyclones (more on this later) and a HEPA filter. It has some things that some Dyson models lack like a separate brushroll motor and not being forced to use the wand for attachments. The Shark Navigator is also must cheaper and comes with more attachments.

The brushes on the Shark really groom the nap of the carpet and allow the powerful suction to reach deep and remove all the ground in dirt. This means the bin will fill quickly which is a problem due to the fact that the bin is quite small compared to most vacuums. This vacuum is cyclonic which means that the vacuum will not lose suction over time as you clean your living space. The vacuum houses 21 cyclones in the top portion of the bin which you have to manually empty about every 5 uses or the suction power will decrease. This is something that is nice about the Dyson which automatically empties the upper cyclones.
