Despite cleaning the house if your carpet is stained it’s going to appear that you simply don’t clean the house the way that you should. It may even appear that you don’t clean it at all. My carpet has had awful stains on it for the longest and despite scrubbing, I’ve just not been able to get enough elbow grease going to remove the stains. I’ve been longing to have my carpets professionally cleaned for some time now but it never seems to be in the budget. I knew it was only a matter of time until I rented one of those large machines from my local grocery store. I will probably even still do so, or I will search out a steam cleaner. It’s said that for a family of four, such as my family, that steam cleaning should happen at least once every six months. It’s also said that for my same family of four the carpet should be vacuumed at least four times a week and then again for each additional animal in the house. That’s basically never going to happen. Don’t get me wrong, I love a clean house but that’s a lot of time that I’m just not willing to spend cleaning the floors that we walk on. However, it is embarrassing to have stained carpet through the house.
While at the grocery store shopping for a carpet cleaner I saw something that got my eye and since I enjoy sharing new things I opted to take a gamble with it and try it out. Guess what, it worked! So if your carpet looks like mine did then you are in luck, this little gadget was a miracle worker for us. It’s essentially no different than scrubbing the carpet with a brush as it doesn’t suck anything up out of the carpet. However, it works much better than any elbow grease that I’ve ever been able to work up. It’s about the same size as a Swiffer and I’d say it’s safe to compare the two. The one thing that I really didn’t like about this little carpet gadget was how weak the handle felt to me. It’s designed to where you can adjust the size of the handle by removing sections of it and that concept was great by the time I got to my stairs. However, as a whole, I think the handle needs some drastic improvement. I told my husband he’s not allowed to use it because I could see him snapping the thing in two without even trying.
Even though the handle wasn’t amazing the results were. I seriously had my doubts about whether or not this would work but it did and the carpet feels so clean underneath my feet. So I decided to have some added fun and put together this video of cleaning the carpet in my office.
