Step-By-Step Guide To Clean A Heavily Soiled Carpet

⇒ Start by Vacuuming

When dealing with a heavily soiled carpet, you need to pay extra attention to the loose soil and debris. Start vacuuming your carpet from a corner and cover the entire area. Move the vacuum in the back-and-forth direction slowly.

Brush the carpet to remove the embedded dirt and vacuum the entire carpet again. Apply gentle pressure and multiple strokes on high-traffic areas. This will eliminate the surface dirt and soil, making the cleaning process easy and effective.

⇒ Prepare Cleaning Solution

To make a DIY cleaning solution, take equal parts of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. You can add 1-2 drops of liquid dish soap if stains are stubborn. Mix the solution, and it is ready to use.

⇒ Pre-treat the Stains

Before you deep clean the carpet, it is necessary to remove the stains. Apply the carpet cleaning solution to the stains and let it sit for a few minutes. Blot the area using a microfiber towel until the area is dry. Work in small sections and repeat this step 2-3 times.

⇒ Steam Clean the Carpet

If you have a portable steam cleaner or just rented one, make sure it works properly. Fill it with water and a suitable cleaning solution as per the given instructions. Turn on the machine and start cleaning from the end (away from the door). Cover the entire area with slow strokes and get out of the room.

⇒ Use Carpet Shampoo

In case you don’t have a steam cleaner, you can use carpet shampoo to deep clean the carpet. Take a good-quality mild carpet shampoo and spot-test it on a hidden area of your carpet.

Once you are sure of its use, apply it on your carpet and let it sit as per the instructions on the product. Brush the carpet to work the shampoo deep inside the fibres.

⇒ Allow the Carpet to dry

Once you deep clean, it’s time to dry your carpet. Keep the door and windows open for air circulation. Strictly avoid walking on carpet until it is completely dry. Once it is dry, vacuum once again to remove the residual dirt.
