The majority of people do not know how to use cleaning chemicals when cleaning their carpets, and they buy the wrong products. Carpet shampoo and powder can be used to obtain a great look for this majestic accessory. Carpet shampoo is a very popular product that is used by cleaning professionals. People may buy it, but they also have to use it right. First, they should read the directions from the package and see how they should make up the solution. Often the product has to be diluted with water. They do not have to use more shampoo than is needed and to not make the carpet too wet. This will be only a waste of detergent and the dying time will increase. If there are some stubborn areas, they should brush them. After the cleaning process is done they have to let the carpet dry and once is dried they can vacuum the shampoo. Carpet powder can be powered by either baking soda or carpet cleaner. It can be used very easy, the user only has to spread the powder over the carpet, to leave it for at least 30 minutes, or overnight, and vacuum the powder. Powder may prove to be a faster way of removing tackling stains.

As in every action, people can use some tricks when cleaning stains from the carpet. If the stain is isolated, the best way to get rid of it is to make it as soon as possible and to not let it dry. They have to blot the stain if they want to prevent it from going deeper into the carpet, and to not wipe it. If they find gum on their carpet, they should use an ice cube for this sticky stain, before prying it off. If there is an area that has smelly stains, people should use warm water and vinegar to apply on it. Cleansers should mix water and shampoo and to use a hard bristled brush to scrub stains, and if they do not have time, they can use powdered carpet cleansers, which is easy to get vacuumed. Any of these products should be tested on a small area before using them on the entire carpet.
