Carpet Cleaning Solutions for your Cleaner

Carpets are an investment and you don’t want to be having to replace them every time they get a little bit dirty. Unfortunately, carpets do get quite easily tarnished as they are constantly being walked on; sometimes with dirty shoes. Regular light cleaning keeps them maintained but every so often it is essential to have an in depth clean of your carpets to remove deeper stains and refresh them. Hiring a carpet cleaner is a cost-effective way of deep cleaning your carpets; you don’t need to be deep cleaning your carpets very often therefore a carpet cleaner purchase would be a large investment which may not be worth it.

Carpet cleaners are ideal for deep cleaning carpets and restoring their fresh scent and look. The Karcher carpet cleaner is able to deep clean carpets without leaving a mass amount of residual moisture. The unit is simple to operate and is able to restore pile on most fabric so that your carpets look as good as new.

DIY Solution for Your Carpet Cleaner

Cleaning Solutions

There are many different options for cleaning solutions, you can purchase commercial cleaning solutions or make your own. You can make your own solution pretty easily using products you likely already have in your home using these ingredients:

  • 5 Litres Hot Water
  • 60ml Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 1 ½ tbsp Distilled White Vinegar
  • 1 ½ tbsp Dish Soap
  • 1 tbsp Fabric Softener

You can also add some essential oils in order to improve the smell of the solution. Choose a fresh scent to freshen up your carpets.


For deep set stains which may require a little extra care and attention baking soda works well for both deodorising and removing stains. Sprinkle baking soda onto the stain and leave to settle for 10 minutes. Then mix together one and a half tsp of dishwashing soap, one and a half tsp of white vinegar and 230ml of warm water and once you have vacuumed up the baking soda you can use the mixture to dab the stain and remove it.
