Hoover carpet cleaners are popular because they are affordable and effective. But do you know how to use one of these deep cleaners efficiently to clean your carpets effectively without damaging them or the environment in general? Read on this article if you want to learn a few tips and watch a quick video demonstrating how easy this is.
The first step before you even begin to use a carpet cleaner is to thoroughly vacuum the floors. You want to get up as much embedded dirt and pet hair as you possibly can so the machine can really go to work on the fibers. Plus this will prolong the life of the carpet cleaner as there won’t be grime caked inside the various pathways and crevices.
Wrap some plastic wrap or other covering around any furniture legs, especially if they are wooden. This will protect the wood from any moisture or cleaning solution as you pass by them.
Fill the clean tank with the correct amount of water and cleaning solution. It’s best to buy the recommended solution as per the instruction manual that came with it. Hoover has their own line of solution choices depending on your needs.
Now you are ready to start, and as you begin remember to squeeze the trigger to get the right amount of cleaning solution on the carpet. Go slow, especially over really dirty areas, just to make sure you give the machine ample time to do its’ job. Make a second pass without using the trigger to extract as much water out of the carpet as you can. Some of the Hoover models even have heaters that work to speed up drying time.
Keep an eye on the dirty water tank and if it is full make sure you empty it. This might be a good time to refill the clean water tank as well. This will depend on how much surface you need to clean and how many passes you make.
If your carpet is very dirty, you may have to repeat the step above a couple of times but you might want to let it completely dry first so you can gauge how effective the first pass was. It won’t hurt your rug if you run the cleaner over multiple times.
You should also ensure that you store the Hoover cleaner in an upright position when it is not in use. This helps to prevent the dirt from getting up in the air. the motor. This also prevents you from causing too much damage to the carpet as you are cleaning.
