Ring around the collar

 Steam Master Carpet Cleaning
Do you have any tips on Steam Master Carpet Cleaning? Good solutions, companies, or anything that will clean very dirty…?Carpet. My kids have ruined my carpet and I cannot afford, new right now.
Any companies or do-it-yourself cleaners that are powerful, and have worked well for you?
Thank you!!!PS. We have new rules about shoes in the house, and eating on the carpet!!

Hire a professional. Ideally you want some who is IICRC Certified. They set all the standards for carpet cleaning.

You also want to use truck-mounted steam extraction. Other methods are NOT recommended by carpet mills.

If the carpet is really trashed you may want to find someone that uses an RX-20. (Rotary extraction)The RX-20 hooks up to the truckmount and has the ability to clean the carpet 4-5 times in one cleaning pass versues a traditional carpet wand which only does one.


DO NOT USE “DO-IT-YOURSELF” carpet cleaners. They actually leave residues that attract dirt, hold it in and wear the fibers out quickly.

Fabric Protection is also recommended for kids.

What is the best steam/carpet cleaner?I dont care about price.You haven’t seen a really bad stained carpet until you come in my attic,lol,so I need something to get up stains and hopefully some of them that have been there for years!

If you’re not fussed about price then you need to hire a true professional.
