Have you ever spilled something on the carpet and found that the stain was impossible for you to remove from the fibers completely? Have you ever taken a look at the high-traffic areas of your home and realized how dirty and worn the carpet seems to look? Do you wish you could replace your old carpeting and just start over?

You might have answered yes to one or all of these questions, and are wondering how to achieve your wish for clean carpet. But replacing your carpet is expensive and quite inconvenient, and maybe you don't have the time and energy to rent a carpet cleaning machine to do the job on your own. Cleaning the carpet can, after all be a time-consuming task.

One of the best options you have for getting your carpet looking new again is to hire a commercial carpet cleaner. There are many cleaning companies out there that will clean your carpets thoroughly without you needing to worry about doing the work yourself. In fact, some of these companies will move your furniture or be willing to clean even if you aren't home—a perk that allows you to schedule more easily.

If you decide that a commercial carpet cleaning is right for you, you will next want to look around your area for the company that will work best for your situation. Look for special deals or particular treatments that appeal to you, or find a company with a good reputation to hire.

When the cleaning company comes to work on your carpets, a technician will probably start with a pre-treatment. This is a spray that is applied to stains and particularly soiled parts of the carpet to help the spots lift out more easily. Once this solution has been sprayed, the technician will set up the carpet shampooer and go over the carpeted areas of your home. This machine uses carpet shampoo and water to wash the carpet fibers and then remove the moisture, leaving the carpet looking spotless and clean. Other methods can also be used, such as steam cleaning. The carpet will be dried completely within a few hours to a couple of days. This process can be helped by opening windows or turning on fans so air can circulate.

Although hiring a commercial cleaning company to shampoo your carpets can be more expensive than doing it yourself, you are likely to save time and frustration by letting someone else do the job for you.

I bought a pair of black sheepskin slippers a while back , unfortunately the colour leached onto the soles of my feet & unknowingly I transferred that colour onto my beige synthetic twist pile carpet. I have tried every cleaner known to man , including tips from the internet. The very large stain has very slightly faded. This is my last resort before having it professionally cleaned. All suggestions are welcomed.
Thankyou in advance!
