And we’re going to continue on our series here. Um, we started a do it yourself series and talking about different processes and best practice things for using a rug. Dr Bissell, maybe a Kirby, whatever a little carpet cleaner you have at home.

[00:47] Um, and these is more specifically directed towards the carpet cleaners that have a moisture tank or a water tank with it. And so it’s able to spray and suck at the same time. A last episode, we talked about the importance of making sure that you limit the amount of water that you’re putting down to the amount of water that you can suck up. Also to make sure that as you’re coming down, you put water so you can spray water and suck it up immediately and that you don’t use water on the upstroke so he pulled the trigger to come down, let go of the trigger to go up. I’m also to make sure that you’re using the hottest water possible. Another good important part of that process that you’re using hot water so that you can help to dilute and to dissolve whatever is in the carpet that you’re trying to clean out. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa

[01:29] Most of those little unit. Some of those units have a pre heater, but if you start with hot water, the hottest tap water you can get from the beginning, then that pre here will at least keep it warm. Another part that we want to cover now briefly covered at the end of the last episode, was that do not use soap in the, um, the little unit itself, a rug Dr Bissell, whatever it is that you use. Um, there’s two reasons for this. One, if you’re using soap in the unit itself, the life of the unit will drop dramatically. Um, I don’t know the exact numbers, but um, uh, yeah, I would say it probably cuts the longevity of the unit may in half. And the reason for this comparatively to just using straight hot clearwater clearwater does not have any chemicals or anything in it. It’s just water. Whereas a soapy water does leave a residue on anything that goes through Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.

[02:18] And so you have that residue of that water with the soap in it goes through the little unit you have and on every fitting and every connection everywhere that it goes through, that soap is going to slowly build up. It’s going to leave a, a surface on everything. You see this in your own house as a showerhead. Uh, the longer you take showers, the more you take showers, even there is just clear water, but eventually you get a scale buildup on the shower head itself, yet that kind of white crusty stuff as it builds up a, a residue around that. I’m around that area up there on your child showerhead carpet cleaning since 1998. I’ve seen so many times where somebody has a small rug, doctor Bissell, and it has just gotten to where it barely sprays or they’ve just used too much soap in it.

[03:03] Um, you’ve mismeasured or you’ve put too much soap over time and eventually it just builds up to where it just doesn’t work properly anymore. And so the best way to avoid that is just not used soap in the machine itself at all. Um, that way you’re only using clear water and you’ll never have to worry about soap buildup. Also, the secondary part that is really important on this is that if you use soap to clean a spot, um, they were cleaning with soapy water, you’re going to have a soapy spot. Uh, there’s, there’s no way to rinse out the substance there. When you’re cleaning soap with soapy water, so if you’re putting a product on it that’s got soap in it and you’re cleaning water, you’re cleaning water has soap in it also because you’ve mixed it into cleaning water soap, it will leave so in the carpet as it dries and a lot of times you’ll notice that that spot slowly seems like it comes back Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.

[03:45] Now it’s sticking to the soap that you left in the carpet instead of the debris that was there. So I recommend having a separate spray bottle. I do this in my own house, um, even when I, my wife will have a spill or something to go wrong and I will actually call her and instruct her to just grab a spray bottle and we have to spray bottles. One’s a priest, pray one is a rinse. And so this priest pray one is where you put all of that. So anything that you want to do to break up that spot, whatever that spot may be, make sure you’re matching the right chemical for that type of spot. And so you take that spot, you free spray it, you put down whatever it needs to do to break up that spot, you suck up whatever you can and then you you spray it and use clear water to rinse out whatever you can and if there’s still something there that you grab a little bit more of the priests sprayer, the soap you sprayed over their, work it in a little bit if it needs it, and then you take and rinse it off and just keep rinsing it off and keep doing that process where you use a little soap and then you clear water, rinse two, rinse it out.

[04:40] And that way when you’re finished cleaning the spot, we’ll clean, stay clean longer because there’s no longer soaps still sitting in the carpet, leaving it, stickier, leaving a residue surface for it to be done. This also happens with tile cleaning where people will mop and then they just let them up, solution dry or they mop with soap and then they grab a wet mop and then they clean mop it. But now they’re all I’ve really done. They didn’t remove what was on the floor, they just diluted it with a more water. There was never any big long rinsing cycle to get things set back to normal. Um, one thing that’s important is that you make sure that you are using enough suction with these small units that suction is king, is so important that you main Tane, that filters that are in that rug, doctor or Bissell, and that you keep it so that there’s proper airflow going through Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.

[05:27] Do not let your hose get wound up or twisted the, you want that straight so that all of it, you got the maximum amount of air flow going through. So set your unit far enough away from you that the hose is able to lay flat or in one big long arc. Don’t let it turn around in a circle. If every circle that make cuts the airflow down because you’re getting turns that slow down where that water’s got to drag through and where that air is going to drag through. And so, um, we’re gonna go on and talk in our next episode a little bit about some ways to clean that spot. Clean the carpet if you don’t have a rug. Dr Bissell.
