A couple of months ago, I visited the home of a young man who had recently bought a new carpet and wanted to do a quick inspection.
He asked me to help him remove the carpet from the house so that it could be cleaned, which I did, using the shag carpet cleaners.
It was then that I noticed that his carpet had turned into a brownish grey and it looked like it was still sticky from a recent cleaning.
He was also getting a little bit of a red stain on the outside of the carpet, which was really annoying.
After getting the carpet cleaned and scrubbed, I realised that it was really dirty and the smell was making my mouth feel very dry.
I quickly scrubbed the carpet to remove any remaining stains, but it was so sticky that it would stick to anything.
Fortunately, the carpet was still clean and I wasn’t getting any dust, so it looked fine for a few days, but after a couple of days of scrubbing and a little more work, I noticed a little red stain that I could see on the inside of the door.
When I opened the door, I found that the door was still stuck to the carpet.
The smell was still strong, but I could smell a bit of grime coming from the carpet and it was definitely a problem.
So, I put it out to dry overnight, cleaned it up and then I sprayed some mild detergent on the carpet so that the smell would dissipate.
Then, the next morning I put a clean coat of wax on the door to prevent the stain from returning.
By the next day, it had started to peel off and look good again.
This is a really good solution to get out of a carpet problem.
It was a good experience and I learnt that carpet cleaners are great for a lot of different situations, including cleaning the outside and helping to remove stains and dust from carpets.
