27 Oct Elements Deep Cleaning of Carpeting
Deep Clean Carpets
If you want your carpets to look, smell and feel their best, regular cleaning is essential. With a ceramic or vinyl floor, you can wipe up the mess and be on your way. But with carpet, stain and odor removal won’t happen unless you clean down deep. In this post we will explore the elements deep cleaning of carpeting.
Pet Stains, Vomit or Blood
It’s important to spot clean these immediately. You can also use spray or foam cleaners from your store, but keep the following in mind:
- The smell and the stains will keep coming back unless the stain is lifted out at the source.
- Some carpet cleaners sold for home use will drive the stains deeper into the fibers.
- They also contain many toxic chemicals.
A better solution? A regular schedule of cleaning that:
- uses the clean, green magic of PureScience instead of toxic chemicals.
- is automatic, so you never have to wonder when your next cleaning is.
- gets at the root of the smell and stain, and gets them out forever.

Padding and Pet Stains
Pet urine, waste water and other smelly stains can penetrate the carpet quickly and soak into the padding. Often you may not even see the stain on the carpeted surface, but below it, mold and other toxins are growing there.
To clean the padding:
- Lift the carpet carefully and remove the tacks holding it to the padding.
- Mop up the liquid mess.
- Use a sponge to clean the area with a mixture of warm water and dish soap.
- After the area dries, apply a white vinegar solution to freshen the smell.
- Don’t put the carpet back over it until the padding is dry.
Certain stains can penetrate through the padding into your subfloor. Once this happens you’ll have no choice but to peel back the carpet and padding.
To clean the subfloor:
- Remove the carpet and padding, being very careful with the tack strips and staples.
- Put on gloves to protect against mildew and chemical toxins that are often released by padding that’s falling apart.
- Clean the stain thoroughly with soap and water and once it’s dry, apply a sealant to the cleaned area.
- To prevent this kind of deep-seated mess, get into a regular, professional cleaning routine.
If your carpet and floors are water-damaged after a flood or a leak, you need to act quickly. Have your carpets and padding removed immediately.
Moisture in any form can spread quickly from your subfloor through your carpet and lead to the growth of dangerous mold and mildew. Drying fans and dehumidifiers can be a big help in drying the floors, but to be sure that all the mold-causing moisture is out, you should consider a professional restoration like CarpetKeepers’ PureRestore system.
