Clean Carpets Like a Pro
Clean your vacuum for max suction
Ensure your vacuum cleaner is in working order before you start. Empty the bag and remove debris from the head to get maximum suction.
The sweet smell of spring
Give your carpet a fresh smell with some deodorizer. Sprinkle liberally around the room and leave for at least 30 minutes.
Fluff lifeless carpet with ice
Rejuvenate lifeless sections of your carpet with ice cubes. Placing small blocks of ice in any dents will help fluff it up again.
Don’t ignore your furniture
Use your vacuum's attachments to remove dust from possibly neglected areas like chairs, tables, and pictures.
Vacuum from the far corner
Finish each room by vacuuming from the far corner to the door. Working in this way will stop you from cleaning yourself into a corner.
