How to Clean a Soiled Carpet?


1. Assess the Situation

Before diving into the cleaning process, assess the level of soiling. You don’t have to bring out your magnifying glass! Find out if it is just surface dirt or deep-set stains. Check this carefully, it will help you tailor your approach.

2. Gather Your Supplies

1001 Carpet Care Stain Remover: This product is a game-changer. It’s designed to tackle tough stains and revive carpets.

Start your cleaning journey by vacuuming the carpet. Your carpet will thank you later!

3. Clean White Cloth or Sponge: For blotting and cleaning.

Use a soft bristled brush to work the stain remover into the fibres. Just like you won’t scrub your face with a dish cleaning scrubber, don’t do the same to your carpet. 

4. Pre-Treat Stains

Identify the heavily soiled areas and apply the stain remover directly. Attack the grime like a knight in quest. Use the soft-bristled brush to gently work it into the fibres.

5. Dilute and Clean

Fill a bucket with water and add 1001 Carpet Care Stain Remover. Dip your cloth or sponge into the solution and blot the stained areas. Avoid scrubbing vigorously, as it can damage the carpet fibres.

6. Blot Treated Area

Blot the treated areas with a clean cloth or paper towels. Repeat until the stain is no longer transferring to the cloth. Patience is key here – don’t lose it, please.

7. Rinse and Extract

Rinse the carpet by blotting with clean water. Then, use a wet-dry vacuum or absorbent towels to remove as much moisture as possible. Right extraction prevents mould and mildew growth.

How do you clean heavily soiled carpet using a carpet cleaning machine?

What You’ll Need

  • Carpet Cleaning Machine: Beg, borrow or buy a carpet cleaning machine as you need it!
  • 1001 Carpet Care Machine Solution: This specialized solution is designed for use with carpet cleaning machines.
  • Vacuum Cleaner: Start by thoroughly vacuuming the carpet to remove loose dirt and debris.
  • Stain Remover (Optional): If you have specific stains, use an appropriate stain remover before using the carpet cleaner.

Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Prepare the Area

Remove all furniture from the carpeted area you are cleaning. Why block the way, right? Check for loose threads or damaged spots that may need extra care.

2. Mix the Solution

Typically, you’ll mix 4 capfuls of solution with 1 litre of warm water. 

3. Fill the Carpet Cleaning Machine

Fill the machine’s tank with the prepared solution. Of course, don’t forget to plug in to start!

4. Start Cleaning

Before tackling the entire carpet, test the machine on a small section. It’s like that first date- awkward but necessary! Adjust the settings as needed.

Imagine your carpet as a chocolate bar-break this into bite sized pieces. I mean sections! Make sure you start cleaning from one side and move across the room.

Push the machine forward to release the solution. Pull it back slowly to extract the dirty water. Repeat until the section is clean.

For stubborn stains, pause and let the solution sit for a few minutes like a suspenseful movie scene. Use the machine’s scrubbing brush or nozzle to target until you’ve got a clean carpet.

5. Rinse and Extract

Once you’ve cleaned the entire carpet, refill the machine with clean water (no solution). Go over the carpet again to rinse out any remaining solution. Rinse excess water as you would do to your hair after a wash!

Regular Maintenance

To prevent heavy soiling in the future, vacuum regularly and address spills promptly. Consider using a carpet protector to repel stains.

Remember, 1001 Carpet Care Stain Remover and 1001 Carpet Machine Solution are your ally in the battle against stubborn carpet stains.
