Sometimes you don’t need us. When you just have a small spot, just one little area that you could just jump down and address. You grab a little bit of chemical, grab a little water, grab a small carpet cleaner or shop-Vac and be able to just get down there and clean that spot right back up without having to call the big professional out. You’ll be able to maintain that carpet in between professional cleanings. I’ve had so many times that I’ve had a customer will tell me the next time that I’m there to get the carpets cleaned. The carpets looked fantastic, and then like an hour later or the next day or a week later someone walks through the living room, and they drop a full bowl of Cereal, they drop some jello or they drop something else or someone walked in immediately with muddy feet and just put the two or three big footprint across the room the next day. So they’ll give us a call and say, Okay what can we do? How can we touch this up? So I wanted to go over a few different steps and processes that are just generally good practices. So you understand the concept of how to keep your carpets clean. The specific steps of what you need to do become less relevant because you will know the why you are doing it. You will know how to do the different processes, the steps you can keep your carpet healthy with. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we are Complete Carpet.
One thing that we’ll touch on here in the next segment is the best way to use a small carpet cleaning machine. So you have a Rug doctor or a Bissell and you want to be able to have a 2 or 3 step process that you go through each time for every spot. You can be able to get in there and make sure it is done right. One, that you’re breaking the spot down. Two, that you’re removing the spot. Three, that you’re not leaving something in the carpet that will attract new dirt. That’s probably one of the number one things that I run into. I see somebody gets in to clean a situation or try to use a product and the products really not quite working. Maybe they’re not using the right product for the right spot, or it’s just not happening quick enough for them, and so they just continue to use more and more product. Now the whole area, each day, seems to get dirtier and bigger and dirtier. The spot seems bigger than before. So we will go over in this next section exactly what you can do to try to limit or remove an area if you have ever had that type of thing happened. I encourage all of our customers that have some small carpet cleaner, be that an actual carpet cleaner or maybe just a shop-vac, and we’ll talk about that too.

Continuing on with tips and ideas that you can do yourself to take care of your carpet. If you bought a small unit like a Bissell or a Hoover or a Rug Doctor, something that is designed to clean your carpets. Then you could just clean that spot yourself right then. One thing to remember about these units is that they are all small units. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we’ve helped many people understand the best practice usage of their own carpet cleaner. The carpet cleaning unit that we will use to come out and clean your house takes up the whole back of a van. It’s got a 35 horse motor, it weighs around 1000 pounds. It’s a gas fired, has a large blower with a 100 gallon freshwater tank. It can get over 200 degrees of water temperature with up to 15 inches of full on suction. It’s just a beast of a machine. So if you were to use this comparison, we will use mowing and lawn care to represent carpet cleaning, then the small units you can use in your home will be equivalent to about a weed eater. You’d be able to get in and kind of touch up your yard. Maybe even get around and if you’re very dedicated you could take your weed eater, and you could mow your entire yard. Let’s say you had a field, you could mow the whole field slowly over time with the weed eater and it would take 8 to 10 hours, but you would get it done. Where as if you had a 0 turn riding lawn mower you can knock that out in 30 minutes to an hour. That’s really a good comparison of our carpet cleaning machine compared to just a small home unit. You could clean the entire house with one of those small units it just takes such an exorbitant out of time, really doesn’t get the carpet to the point it needs to be at and leaves it too wet. So really they are more designed for maintenance spot cleaning.
For small areas you get a little spill you grab the carpet cleaner jump on it, clean that spill out. Or if something falls on the carpet, and you can get on it right away, then almost anything can be cleaned out of carpet if done as soon as it happens. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we are Complete Carpet. One of the best practice steps to use your home carpet cleaner is to follow our system. The way that we clean carpets. It is the best way and I would advise for all of our customers to try to clean their carpets. You know that you’ll be doing it on a smaller scale than using our large truck mounted machines. We will go over all of those processes here in the next episode. You know this is something that we would love for all of our customers to have, a small carpet cleaning unit. Though I’ve had many customers shy away at the idea of buying a whole $300 carpet cleaning unit just to maintain and take care of spots. And I understand that. Personally I wouldn’t buy an expensive carpet cleaner. I honestly suggest just getting a good shop-Vac, a really strong shop vac, and put a wet filter in it. Then just use that with a spray bottle of hot water as your small carpet cleaner. Using a shop-Vac instead with an upholstery tool and a spray bottle of hot water costs about third that of a home carpet cleaner and works even better..
