STEPS TO THOROUGH CARPET CLEANING

Every time carpet is walked upon, dirt is ground into the fibers.  Foreign matter deposited in a carpet will grind away at the base fiber.  Regular vacuuming removes loose dirt and helps extend the life of the carpet.  And, as with any cleaning procedure, before you begin inspect and inventory your cleaning supplies.  You need a carpet rake, portable backpack vacuum cleaner with attachments or upright vacuum cleaner, hazard signs, dustpan and broom, gum remover, putty knife and gloves.

The following steps teach you how to properly vacuum carpets:

  • Choose the right vacuum that will do the job as thoroughly and as efficiently as possible.
  • Check the vacuum belt and replace if necessary.
  • Check the vacuum bag and replace the bag if it is full, or empty the canister.
  • The first safety rule when working with any electrical equipment is personal safety.  Check equipment cords for fraying and plugs for damage.  Do not use the equipment if any damage is found.
  • Place appropriate "hazard" signs, if needed.
  • Remember to use only electrical outlets that are not currently in use or that have been designated by the client to power your equipment.
  • Most companies have computers or other equipment that run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  These items are not be disconnected from electrical outlets.
  • Pick up any large debris using a dustpan and broom.
  • Clean up any spills or spots you come across before you vacuum.

Now you are ready to start.  If using a portable backpack vacuum, move the carpet attachment in a side-to-side fan motion, moving backwards.  If using an upright vacuum, move holding the vacuum upright and angle backwards.
