Most people, who know me, know I have a thing for clean floors. I’m not obsessive or crazy about it, but we have white Berber carpet, white tile and white couches. In addition to that we have 2 dogs, one being a white (see a pattern here?) golden retriever puppy who loves, loves, loves the pool. He also loves being wet from the pool and finding any mud puddle or dirt area to dig in.Once he’s done getting nice and sloppy muddy, he waits for the back door to open and bolts inside. Because he’s all excited and refreshed, he does this mad dash around the entire house. Needless to say we have a lot of activity in our home. Just as many as you may have in your as well. One of the hardest issues for us is trying to keep my carpets looking clean and fresh all the time, without the expense of professional carpet cleaning. We’d go broke if I hired a professional to clean my carpets every time I needed. In addition to the fact it is NOT good for your carpeting
The best, and I mean the BEST product we’ve found, for home carpet cleaning, is a product we carry at Mr. Sweeps Vacuums & More. It is the ORECK® Dry carpet shampoo and PreMist® spray. You vacuum your carpet, then spray a fine layer of Pre-Mist then sprinkle the dry shampoo on the carpet. Either uses a scrub brush or what we call an Orbiter® machine to work the powder into the carpet. You want to really work it down into the pad so that it gets to all the dirt below the surface. Wait till it dries (about 45 minutes) and vacuum. Done. The amazing part about this is that you can use this product ANYTIME you need it. No waiting to call a professional. If you spill a glass of wine, puppy has an accident, your child drops the “Sippy” cup, you have a product that will clean the problem right then and there, plus your stains won’t sit or set. And, IF you simply want to freshen your carpets for guests, you have it.
The Pre-Mist acts to lightly open the fiber to allow the Dry shampoo to adhere. The dry shampoo comes in contact with the dirt/urine/spill, it and absorbs the particles. Once trapped in the dry shampoo it will not release it. As it dries the particles rise to the surface, dry and you vacuum up. This product is non-toxic, Hypo-allergenic, removes allergens, stains, dirt, grim and yes, Mud. Plus its long lasting, has a fresh clean scent and can be used often. Most importantly, it works! And no, the stain will not come back in two weeks, because you’ve removed the whole stain, not just the surface stain.
IF you’re looking to save money, consider buying an orbiter machine. We sell or rent them in our stores or you can purchase one from our website. The cost runs $200-$499 depending on new or refurbished and model (We normally have a special going for $100 OFF a new unit). The best part of having this machine is that it also scrubs grout lines, tile, wood, laminate, travertine, concrete, Spanish pavers, marble and just about any other type of floor surface. It will also strip, sand and polish wood or you can polish your natural stones with it as well. You just change out the pads, or brushes to use on different surface types. I use it as my daily mop. Spray cleaner, mop, throw dirty pad in the wash, done in less than 10 minutes. (no kidding) Honestly, in the years that we’ve been using this machine and selling this machine, I have never been disappointed and our customers love it. 70 % of our customers, who rent it, come back and buy it, while the others just come in and rent as needed. It’s the healthy way to clean carpets
