    Q:Is this a low pH cleaner? I'm looking for something under 7 as required by the synthetic recycled materials used in my carpeting.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The pH level is just below 7 when diluted with water when following label instructions. The concentrate's pH level is at or just slightly above 7.0.

      Q:Can Simple Green Carpet cleaner be used on a large wool area rug?
      by|May 5, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Our Clean Building Carpet Cleaner is suitable for use on hard, non-porous surfaces. A wool area rug may be too porous for our cleaner to be effective.

        Q:The instructions are very clear however this does not help explain how to use it with a machine that has a seperate compartment for solution and one water tank. Because the solution mixes with water from the tank it seems it could be too diluted to work properly as the instructions indicate. There is not accurate way to determine how much water is used with the solution as it exits the Hoover carpet extrator. There is also a problem with how the Hoover operates. It is consistently pulling up water no matter how you use it which makes it difficult to put a solution down to soak. Has anyone else tackled these problems or got more instructions how to use this product with this type of carpet machine?
        by|Jan 23, 2019
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  For this type of situation it would be best to mix the product in a pump type sprayer and apply it as a pre-spray then use clean water in the Hoover extractor. This way you will know exactly the dilution that is being applied to the carpet and it will have some dwell time to loosen soils. When applying the product be sure to not over-wet the carpet. Home Depot does offer a very reasonable pump sprayer that is perfect for this type of application.

          Wow! I love Simple Green Products and this Carpet Cleaner is one more reason why. It is Green Seal Certified which is important to me and it does a fantastic job of cleaning. For this review I used it on a small section of carpet which I thought was pretty clean since I had already shampooed it about 12 weeks ago. Mixing the solution is easy and is spelled out on the label; 6 ounces to a gallon. It is VERY concentrated and there are precautions to take when handling the concentrated solution. Also, being so concentrated this is a HUGE Value for your money. I could not believe the dirt that came out of the carpet both initially and when I was finished extracting. I never expected to see that and never have with the last brand of cleaner I was using. This is all the proof I need to know that this is an exceptional carpet cleaner and actually I cannot wait to do all the wall to wall carpeting. Did I just say that?! I highly recommend Simple Green Clean Building Carpet Cleaner Concentrate. It is an EXCELLENT product.

          While this is called carpet cleaner, we have found it is good for more than just carpet. We got it to shampoo the carpets in a classic SUV we’re restoring, but we have also used it in our upholstery cleaning machine, and it worked well on a greasy couch that we have in the shop, the seats in our truck, and as a presoak in a 5 gallon bucket for dirty shop towels. And at a 121 to 1 dilution ratio, this gallon will go a long way.

          This product has the Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute. This is the carpet industry’s only scientific program to test and measure the effectiveness of cleaning products. Not all solutions are certified and may actually harm your carpets in the long or short run. Being non-toxic and biodegradable are advantages as well. I prefer not to fill my home with toxic chemicals. The cleaning results were absolutely outstanding and I will outline exactly how I used it. First step is to slowly and methodically vacuum the carpet in both directions before you deep clean with an extractor. Next, I mixed the Simple Green Carpet Cleaner Concentrate 6 ounces if cleaner to 1 gallon of water. I put the diluted solution into a small garden sprayer\, and sprayed the area to be cleaned. Don;t over saturate the carpet, but stains ad high-traffic areas may require a bit more solution. You may also want to use a soft brush to agitate the solution into any really dirty areas or stains. Give it 5-10 minutes to start working. Meanwhile, get your extractor set up with only hot water in the tank. I have a Bissell Big Green and I make one forward pass and one backward pass with the trigger engaged. Then I make a forward and backward pass over the same area without the trigger depressed to dry and extract as much liquid as possible out of the carpet. I have found this process to not only clean the carpets better than the Bissell solution, but leaves no residue and the carpets stay cleaner longer. that is the advantage of using only water in the tank verse putting solution in the tank. The carpet isn't heavily perfumed with artificial fragrances when you clean with this Simple Green Clean Building Carpet Cleaner, but also had no odors left in it either. I have 4 dogs, so things can get smelly over time.

            The Simple Green non-toxic and biodegradable carpet cleaner removes dirt and stains from carpet, rugs and upholstery. This cleaner is certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute as being safe for use on carpets in pre-spray and extraction cleaning. The concentrated formula dilutes at 1:21 thus a gallon goes a long way. This cleaner complies with LEED green building requirements and environmentally preferable product purchasing programs in place throughout federal, state, and municipal governments. This cleaner works well with both commercial and home carpet cleaners and I have found it to work better than most of the better known home and commercial use brands. When I pretreated a carpet that had ground in dirt, followed by using a home steam cleaner using a 1:30 mixture it did a better job than any previous cleaners. I would recommend this over other carpet cleaners.

            We love simple green products. We just had our carpets cleaned professionally and after it dried there were still brown spots on the carpets. This cleaner pulled those stains out better than professionals. How cool is that? It smells nice too and not strong like some chemicals. I like that it doesn't harm the environment or my pets. Worked great in a RugDoctor machine. Wasn't overly foamy and it works on crazy stains so enough said.

            This carpet cleaning solution does a very good job at cleaning the carpet. It has a pleasant smell and leaves the carpet smelling fresher after using it and when dry. I have 2 large German Shepherd dogs and 2 cats that live in my home so the dogs do bring in dirt on their pads along with me bringing in dirt in my shoes. I live on a farm so my carpeting and wood floors can get pretty dirty on a weekly basis. The rug cleaner had to be changed twice because the dirty water was very dark after cleaning so it picked up almost all of the dirt on the first run. I am glad I have the cleaner.

            I use this in a Hoover Max Extract carpet cleaner for cleaning my living room and TV room carpets and several large area rugs. This seems to foam less than the other brands that I have used in the past which means that the auto shutoff doesn't get triggered due to excess foam. Diluted in a spray bottle it works well for spot removal and general cleaning. I clean carpet at least twice a year plus family members borrow the Hover.
