Carpet Cleaning

Carpet Cleaning How To
Give your carpets a professional cleaning without the hefty price tag. Genesis 950 is the perfect DIY carpet cleaning solution. Because of the way it cleans, Genesis 950 breaks down and removes everything from dirt and dust, to slimy residue left behind from other carpet cleaning solutions. Revive and restore your carpet by removing pet stains, traffic stains, food spills, dust and dander. 

Most carpet cleaning solutions are soap based cleaners.Genesis 950 is not. Because it is not soap based it works better than other carpet cleaning solutions. Acting as a surfactant, Genesis 950 uses water to make stains water soluble. When used to clean carpet, it is able to remove the smallest stain particles from fibers and padding.

Soap based cleaners can leave a residue behind. This residue is often a fine film which can give your carpet a slimy feeling. Over time, this film can leave carpet feeling stiff. The more you try to rinse soap out of the carpet, the more it foams and in turn the worse the residue. Soaps are also designed to attract dirt. This attraction means that once soaps are introduced to carpet, dirt, dust, dander and other debris will likely be drawn to it.


Bissell Pro Heat
Carpet cleaning is easier now than ever. These machines are affordable and easy to use. One of the most popular models is the Bissell Pro Heat. Upright carpet cleaning machines such as this typically have 3 compartments. One compartment holds clean water, one holds solution and the third compartment is for dirty, returned water. Settings of these machines make carpet cleaning easy. There is no need to mix the solution and water as the machine does so automatically based on your setting. For General cleaning, use the "Low" setting. When selected, the machine will siphon a minimal amount of cleaning solution in proportion to the amount of water being used. Likewise, if the "High" setting is used, the machine will siphon a higher volume of solution the tank. This setting gives you the power to use what is needed for the job. Typically the "Low" setting would be best used for a general cleaning, while the "High" setting should be used for heavy traffic areas or pet stains.

Once you have cleaned the entire carpet based on your setting, allow the carpet to sit for some time. This will give the solution the time needed to break down debris and stains in the carpet. For a general cleaning, letting the carpet sit for about 30 - 45 minutes will be enough. In cases where stains are overwhelming, allow the solution to sit for a couple hours. The longer it sits, the more it can break down. 

After the time has elapsed, fill your machine's tank with clean water and nothing else. Select the "Rinse" cycle and slowly go over the areas you have applied the solution. In rinsing, you will see the return water come back black. Rinse thoroughly until the return water begins to come back clear. This may require several rinsing cycles. If the water does not come back clear, rinse until you are satisfied with the appearance.

Bissell 2 In 1

Another design for carpet cleaning machines is a 2 in 1 tank. The Bissell Powerlift is an excellent machine with this type of design. Typically, most carpet cleaning machines that can be rented have this design as well. A 2 in 1 tank holds both the clean water and the solution. This tank gives you more control over how much solution you use. Simply fill the tank up based on your cleaning needs. For a general cleaning use 1/7 Genesis 950 and 6/7 water. For moderate cleaning, use 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. In extreme cases, use a 50/50 mix. However be sure that you never use more Genesis 950 than water when cleaning. Water is the active ingredient. If the amount of 950 is greater than the amount of water, your results will be minimized. 

Once the tank is filled, begin to clean the carpet. Allow this mixture to sit in the carpet for about 30 - 40 minutes to properly break down stains, odors, bacteria, dirt and dust. After that time has elapsed, fill the tank with ONLY clean water. Go over the entire area slowly to rinse and flush out stains that have been broken down. If you see your return water coming back black, you might want to rinse multiple times until the water begins to come back clear.
