[00:54] Today we’re going to talk about do it yourself, a spot treating. We’re going to cover the rug doctor a bissell. You’ve also got the little hoover, one’s a kirby has some little home carpet cleaners, but um, more specifically talking about the ones that are a little. They have suction and water built into the unit. Some of these have heated water, some of them just have straight water. Um, and I recommend whether it’s got heated water or it has just, um, just a cold water ends install place that you always use the hottest tap water you can get. The little pre heaters do a job of continuing, but the, typically most of them just keep the water hot that’s there. It normally doesn’t do enough to really heat up the water as fast as it sprays it out. Another part that’s, I’ve see as a, an error that everybody uses on the little small units is that typically they hold the trigger down and keep cleaning, so they’ll scrub down with water coming into those strobe up with the water still spraying and those scrubbed down.
[01:50] So they just hold the trigger and just of go up and down. Even with our really large machine, carpet cleaning Tulsa I’m just as a general practice, I actually only use water on the downstroke and always lead off the water on the upstroke because on the upstroke the suction’s going up and the water spraying down, so it’s actually just leaving water that’s not getting sucked up so the water just sprays into the carpet and just sits there and so until you come back down over that, that water’s just sprayed onto the carpet and just stay there. Now that when you come down, not only does the one have to suck up the water that you’re spraying down, but it also had to suck the water that was already there that you sprayed down from the last stroke, so you’re having it to cut in one suction stroke, trying to clean, trying to suck up to strokes worth of water.
[02:34] So what we do is that will actually spray waters. We go down, we let off the suction, so we go back up over that area and suck up any additional wires that we’re giving to suction stroke for every one stroke that there’s water sprayed down so low. Say the one starts away from you, you pull the trigger, let’s water spray as you come down or towards you. And then once you stop with the water coming towards the water, then you let go of the spray so you no longer spraying and he moved back forward, sucking up whatever was extra there, and then again start the process again. So you pull the trigger and come down. Spring water, let go of the trigger, go back up, sucking it up, come back down with water and suction, go back up with just suction and no water and you kind of repeat this process as you’re going along.
[03:17] So one thing that will help almost like just a quick fast tip that will double your cleaning power on almost any little small carpet cleaner, is that you do not go full trigger all the time that you go triggered down. Let go of the trigger up, triggered down with water as you’re pulling down, and then let go of the trigger and just suction while you’re going up. Um, carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. I have done actually many jobs where somebody tried to clean a spot and they couldn’t get it out. So they called me out and I was able to get out there the same day they had tried to clean the spot and now or even the next day or maybe two or three days later. And I’ve actually gotten out there before and found out, went over to that spot and I could push on the carpet.
[03:57] And actually it was very damp. It was very wet and then they pushed on. I could actually hear it Kinda squish. And so, uh, a couple of different times I’ve actually, they used so much water because they just kept scrubbing over the area and each time that you scrub over an area there, it adds more water to it. And if that the unit cannot suck the water up fast enough, eventually it fills the capacity of what that carpet can hold. And it will then go down to the backing. And then we’ll go down for the backing down into the pad. And you could actually water damage the carpet. And the pad, just trying to clean the carpet if there’s not enough suction to pull it out. And so I pulled the carpet back and the padding below you can actually ring water out of it because he had just used too much product.
[04:35] You’d, he would spray down a soap or product into the carpet. So now it’s already got some water there and then the first thing you do is then um, then spray it with water to try to dilute the product that he put it in there. And then he would, he would use his cleaner to go over it and he just went down to suck with on an up sprain with no suction to come down sprains or you just always had the trigger pull that was going back and forth. He tried going really slow and the unit just could not suck the water up that fast. He was putting down water faster than the unit could pocket that could suck it back up. carpet cleaning Tulsa us since 1998, we are complete carpet. And I’ve run into so many times where people just do not have the proper balance in what they’re doing.
[05:15] Um, and so part of the process that you need to do, and I call this balancing where you taking the amount of water that you put down and have more suction then, um, then water that you’re putting down, so the suction and they will always stay ahead of the water. Um, and if the water ever catches up with the socks, you need to let go of the water and just start using suction to go. A couple of dry passes over to get that moisture drawn back down again. Um, this is important when using a rug, Dr Bissell, um, in that they have the water built into them. And so you need to make sure that you’re balancing that properly. One part of that is also important with this is that it’s best to use all of your priest spray separately from your bissell or your rug doctor.
[05:55] And I know they typically will say a little bit of the cleaning chemicals in the water so that you’re cleaning with a cleaning chemical. But that means that you’re cleaning soap with soap and so it’s best to first put a little soap down and then come through with just clear hot water. Don’t put any soap or chemical in the rinse water so that you can rinse out all of the soap and chemicals put in there so that when it dries, it’s not drawing with soap in the water. Still it’s drawing a perfectly clean and clear. We are complete carpet, carpet cleaning Tulsa surrounding community since 1998.
