When should you use a carpet cleaning product?
The next time you have to clean your carpet, think about it as a “soft carpet,” meaning that it’s cushioned and has no hard edges or edges that are sticking out.
That means it’s easy to clean, and you can wipe it down with a cloth before placing it back in the place where it was left.
It’s also a good idea to brush it down thoroughly with a damp cloth before putting it back, because it’s likely to get scratched.
You can also use a cleaning pad if you have a small amount of dust or grime that may be sticking to your carpet.
But you should also wash it with a mild detergent and water if it has any signs of mildew or stains, because this may cause it to smell.
“It’s a great product, but it can be a little hard to use,” says Jennifer Stahl, owner of the Cleaning Products & Supplies business in Killeen.
“You don’t want to rub it in your face with it, so you don’t get any marks, but you definitely want to get rid of any kind of dirt that’s sticking out.”
So if you don: If you want to clean carpet with a detergent, use the softest product you can find.
You might want to use a cloth-based cleaner instead.
Use the most expensive product you know of.
And if you’re buying the carpet cleaner separately, make sure you use the most-expensive product that comes with it to avoid using it in a different product.
“Carpet cleaners are really good for people with sensitive skin or sensitive hair, but they don’t work well for people who have allergies,” says Stahl.
And there are a few other considerations to consider.
First, you might not have time to thoroughly wash your carpet if you get to a carpet spot before you’re done.
So if it’s wet, you need to use an extra product to clean it.
And your carpet might still smell a little bit after it’s been cleaned.
If that’s the case, you should let it dry completely before putting the carpet back in your home.
But if you can wait until the carpet has dried, you can do it in less than 10 minutes.
If it’s not dry, use a milder detergent for cleaning, and then use the same detergent on your carpet to remove any remaining dirt and grime.
If you’re planning to put the carpet in the garage or other place that has an uneven surface, you’ll want to avoid applying the carpet cleaning pad directly to the surface and then letting it dry.
So you might want a soft scrub brush that’s suitable for both brushing and massaging the carpet.
“I don’t know if it’ll do the job,” says Michael Kowalski, owner and head of the carpet and carpet cleaning business in Portage, Mich.
But, he says, “If I can get it in there, it should be good.”
If you do need to clean a carpet, the best thing to do is wait for it to dry completely.
“Once it’s dry, the carpet will feel a little softer,” says Kowarski.
“So if it feels really rough, you don�t want to try to scrub it.”
You might also want to consider getting an electric scrub brush.
“Most people will tell you that the electric scrub brushes are better than the soft ones because you can get the surface to feel softer, but the soft brush doesn’t feel as soft,” says Ken Nee, a carpet and carpets specialist at the American Home Furniture Association.
If your carpet is going to be used for a long time, you could consider getting a vacuum cleaner.
“Vacuum cleaners are very efficient at getting dirt out of carpet and debris from it,” says Nee.
And you’ll get the same cleaning results as using the soft pad.
If not, you may need to go to a professional carpet cleaning company and have them apply a cleaning product that is compatible with your carpet and the type of carpet it will be being used on.
“A carpet cleaner that’s compatible with the carpet you’re trying to clean should be effective, but also durable and will last longer,” says John Zirny, a landscape and urban designer and landscape architect in New York City.
And then you might consider applying a cleaning spray or a cloth product to the carpet, if it is going in a specific location, like your backyard.
If those things don’t help, you probably should buy the carpet scrub brush instead of buying a carpet cleaner.
You’ll likely save money by buying a scrub brush, but if you decide to use the carpet cleaners separately, it’s a good choice.
