Carpet cleaning
If you are in the market for a good vacuum cleaner, then it is really best to get something that is durable and will last a long time. If a lifetime warranty is important to you, check out the Kirby line of vacuums, and other brands, with this feature. Kirbys are also known for having more metal internals than any other vacuum on the market. One other interesting fact about them is there are very many people who have owned their Kirby vacuum for twenty and thirty years. And, when you speak with a long-time Kirby owner, it's not unusual to have them tell you they have never had any trouble with their Kirby. Today, craftsmanship and attention to detail, like in the Kirby vacuums, is scarce. Therefore, if your budget can handle the price of a Kirby vacuum, than you should definitely purchase one.

Carpet cleaning - Have you ever had a water pipe break and flood your carpet? If so, you are familiar with the damage to your carpets when this happens. It's a good idea to have a rug shampoo machine that can function as a wet vacuum if you don't happen to have a wet vac. You can easily find a rug shampooer that is almost as strong as a shop vacuum, but you'll have to buy one of the more expensive brands available. The goal, and there are health reasons to consider also, is to vacuum up as much of the water as you can. One thing you have to watch for if your carpet has flooded is the development of mold. When it starts, it can get out of control very fast, and the only solution at that time is to buy new carpets.

Many methods of carpet cleaning exist and, as can be expected, some are more effective than others. One easy to use method for carpet cleaning uses steam.

This is a good method if you prefer not to use chemical products or shampoo. However, you have to be sure to do it correctly. One very important step is making sure that all the moisture is removed from the carpeting when you are finished cleaning. Most everyone knows that steam condenses. What it then does is become water that lodges in your carpet fibers. When you finish cleaning, therefore, you have to make sure this water is removed from your carpet. Health concerns and the loss of your carpet can result if the water is left in the fibers and mold forms.

You will have a difficult time keeping lighter colored carpets clean for obvious reasons. A bigger challenge than getting rid of pet stains, is cleaning up food and drink stains. A classic stain featured on TV commercials is red wine spilled on a light-colored carpet. Tomato based food spills, even if you start to clean them immediately, can be worse than pet stains. There are enzyme stain removers for food based stained that work just as well as those for pet stains. This is what you should keep on hand.

It's important that you remember that neglecting your carpets can lead to allergy problems. It's really a no-brainer. You set up a simple schedule for vacuuming and shampooing and you stick to it. You can safeguard your health, and prolong the life of your carpets, if you maintain good carpet cleaning maintenance procedures.
