Cleaning carpets and rugs will help extend their life and keep them looking good for years. Regular vacuuming is important to remove soil and protect against wear from ground-in dirt.
When vacuuming isn't enough, it's time to shop for carpet cleaning products at The Home Depot.
There are different types of equipment available for deep-cleaning your carpet; steam cleaning machines, dry foam scrubber machines, or vacuum cleaners. There are cleaning products for each method. You can choose an all-purpose cleaner or one with added features like stain repellents, low-foam agents or deodorizers.
Stains require special treatment. Look for spot removers that treat food stains or deodorizers that remove odors caused by smoke, mildew, food or animal waste.
Cleaners and spot removers come in various forms like foams, ready-to-use sprays or concentrates. Experiment until you find the one that works best for you.
When deep cleaning is needed, follow this easy four-step plan.
