I know you may be asking yourself, “How can I clean my carpets so they look brand new again?” After a few years it’s obvious you’ll need to give your carpets a proper clean, even if you’ve been taking relatively good care of them.

There will always be a stain or two that seems impossible to get rid of, but don’t worry because there are a few things you can do. In fact, let’s look at some of the more popular ways to remove pesky carpet stains right now.

A Few Ways To Remove Annoying Stains
If you use shaving cream, I’m guessing you’re used to putting it on your face. If you try spraying some on the carpet I think you’ll be surprised. It’s a good way to get out most stains if you scrub hard, but it won’t have much affect on older ones.

Chewing gum is one of the most time-consuming things to get out when you smudge it everywhere with your feet. Getting it out while it’s at room temperature might take you a decade, so freeze it with an ice cube and you’ll be able to pull it off much easier.

Dishwasher detergent is sometimes useful when tackling grease. If you think about it, the chemicals in detergents are meant to fight grease, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to wash your dishes after eating.

The Only Real Carpet Cleaning Solution
Unfortunately for you, the only real way you’ll be able to clean your carpets properly is using a machine. You won’t have a carpet cleaner handy, so you’ll have to hire one for the day.

We can list thousands of little tips, but even though the ones mentioned are great, to get your carpet looking new you’ll need the heavy artillery. Take a look at some of the things you’ll need to do from start to finish.

Hiring Your Carpet Cleaning Machine
Do you know where to hire a machine? Ask around or find one on the Internet. That is only the beginning, because once you’ve located one you’ll need to drive out to pick it up. Carpet cleaners aren’t exactly light, so be prepared to drag it to your car then into your home to get started.

Reading The Instructions
This might be the worst job of the lot, unless you enjoy reading instruction manuals. You can’t switch the machine on until you know exactly how to use it. To attempt using the machine without reading the instructions will only end in disappointment. Your carpets won’t be clean, and you’ll have wasted your time.

Moving The Furniture Out Of The Way
I hope your furniture isn’t too heavy because you’ll need to move everything. You can’t start cleaning the floor until you’ve cleared the room and all your carpet is visible. Even if there aren’t any stains underneath certain things, if you decide to move them in the future your carpet will be multicolored if you don’t clean it all.

Preparing Your Carpet Cleaner For Action
Now you can finally hook up the carpet cleaner. Fill it up with soap and water, plug it in, and you’re ready to go. Because you’ve studied the instructions carefully you’ll know exactly how much of everything you need to put inside.

Now You Can Finally Clean Your Room
Don’t give up too early if the stains still aren’t coming out. The small machines for hire are not great and you might need to keep going over stains thousands of times before they come out. It’s a hard and tiring process, plus it gets worse because you’ll make a lot of mess that needs to be cleaned up.

Time To Do Everything In Reverse
Your carpets might be clean and you’ll have a smile on your face, but don’t get too excited yet. You will need to do everything again in reverse. The only thing you can skip is reading the instructions, so at least there is some good news.
