With winter slowly leaving us, thank goodness, you may get the itch to want to start spring cleaning. The best way to start is by cleaning any carpet or rugs you have in your home. Here are some tips to get your carpet feeling clean and smelling fresh!

1. Always start with a fresh clean vacuum cleaner bag. You do not want to have your vacuum cleaner leaving dirt and dust particles behind. Then vacuum the entire floor twice in different directions. We feel that this is the best possible way to capture all the loose particles.

2. Purchase a good penetrating spot remover and carpet brush. Pre-treat your toughest spots and stains by letting the solution soak in for 5 minutes prior to scrubbing. Take your carpet brush and scrub the stains in different directions. You can also repeat this process on stubbon spots and stains. 

3. Make sure your carpet shampooer / steamer has a built in heating core. This keeps your water hot! You want your water as hot as can be. This will not only loosen dirt better, but studies have shown that it kills up to 70% more germs than when cold water is used. Purchase a good carpet spotter, deodorizer and protectant. Add this to your carpet cleaning machine and go over your carpet in a straight-line motion. You can do this until desired appearance is attained.  

4. Once the floor is completely dry, vacuum it once again. This will pick up all the dirt and dust that was loosened by the carpet cleaning machine.
