The Dobmeier 3-Step Professional Carpet, Rug & Mat Cleaning Guide

STEP 1 - Identify The Type Of Carpet / Rug / Mat That Needs Cleaning

Carpets, Rugs, & Mats can be designed for indoor or outdoor use, and may be made from any of a wide variety of different fiber types:
1.1. Natural Fiber Floor Coverings with natural fibers derived from either Animals or Plants
1.2. Synthetic Fiber Floor Coverings with man-made polymeric fibers
Also, Blended Floor Coverings with combinations of Natural and/or Synthetic Fibers

These different types of carpet / rug fibers may require varying cleaning procedures and different cleaning chemicals.


STEP 2 - Identify The Optimum Carpet Cleaning Methodology To Use

Carpets should be regularly Vacuum Cleaned of loose dirt and soil by using a quality Vacuum Cleaner with a beater bar / brush head. Any remaining soil or stains will then require use of carpet cleaning chemicals and equipment. There are 3 broadly different strategies for dealing with different carpet cleaning scales and degrees of soiling:

Small Area 'Contained' Soiling, Spills, & Stains are typically most efficiently removed using Carpet Spotters that may be designed for all-purpose cleaning or may be designed to remove specific contaminants such as ink, gum, oil/grease, tar etc.

Broad Area Carpet Surface Soil is usually easily dealt with using Carpet Shampoo applied using either a Carpet Shampoo Machine or Bonnet Cleaning Equipment.

Broad Area Deep-Cleaning to remove heavily ingrained soiling and dirt from carpets and rugs requires that Carpet Extraction Detergent be applied (and then removed) using a powerful Carpet Extractor Machine.

A janitorial carpet cleaning schedule may include regular (daily?) broad-area vacuum cleaning and use of Carpet Spotters to quickly remove any small-area staining, with scheduled (weekly?) broad-area shampooing or extracting to maintain the carpet.
