October 18, 2010

Vacuum being run over old dirty carpetI am renting a house with old worn carpets and everything seems to make them look worse. Within 48 hours of cleaning they look as though they've never been cleaned. I have tried dry cleaning, foam, and steam cleaning. Please help.

I am a carpet cleaner. And should not really share this with you tricks of the trade LOL. If you have ever heard of something called traffic film remover it is used for washing cars. You can buy from any good motor shop it's a heavy duty degreaser and will lift any stain. Use this as a pre spray than suck it up with something like a rug doctor.

I am looking for a good carpet cleaner. I have tried all the ones sold in the store and even rented a machine and bought the special cleaning fluid for it.

I have 14 year old carpets in a mobile home. They are worn and filthy, but I cannot afford to replace them at this point. Please give me your best tips.
