It’s time to clean the carpets and you have decided to do this yourself. If the carpet is clean site here, it can be done easily. But if carpets are used frequently as they are in Mesa, you need to be thorough.

The cleaning products available in most stores such as foams and powders you can sprinkle, spray or spread on carpets are not enough to clean them effectively. They will at best only provide a surface-cleaning, with larger problems lurking behind.

If you don’t already have the equipment, you will want to look for a retailer in Mesa who rents out carpet cleaning machines as well as professional cleaning solutions.

You must vacuum and move the furniture before you even start your machine.

You should try to avoid overwetting your carpets when using a machine. Some people believe that overwetting carpets isn’t a big deal, but it can lead to seepage into the padding, which encourages the growth of mold and mildew. You may not be aware that mold, which can cause serious health problems, is a very dangerous substance if it’s left untreated. The carpet can become brown from over-wetting. Furniture that is moved onto the carpet before it has dried will also cause rust stains and hard to remove wood stains.

As you will have to mix the detergent, you should be cautious about the amount you use. A little too much detergent can leave residue that can trigger asthma and allergies in people who are sensitive to it. With the hot weather in Mesa, the drying time is quick. Too much soap can cause it to set quickly and you will have to wash it with water again.

It is important to give the carpets and padding ample time to fully dry before re-arranging furniture on top of the carpet.
