If you have ever had your carpets professionally cleaned you will know how expensive an experience it can be. Whether it be a steam clean or a dry clean, finding any sort of complete carpet cleaning solution can quickly burn a hole in your pocket. Couple this with the fact that carpets if maintained properly require cleaning at least every 12 months and there is a problem. What many people don't know is that there are various options available to effectively clean your carpets yourself, almost without spending a dime. This article will look at some of the home based carpet cleaning solutions and offer tips on how to save money on your carpet cleaning forever.<br/> <br/>Before we get into the good stuff, a carpet cleaning solution that should be noted is the rental and use of carpet cleaning machinery to do the job yourself. While this will still cost you money, you will usually save a great deal from a professional carpet clean. If you get some good instructions on exactly how to execute the process you can certainly come out on top.<br/> <br/>OK but how can we get our carpets cleaned without any financial outlay? Keep in mind that most of these natural carpet cleaning solutions will require the use of a carpet cleaning device that are available from all good retailers. Usually the difference between using one of these and a professional is the quality of results but it doesn't have to be.<br/> <br/>The first and most effective carpet cleaning solution is a combination of a number of ingredients to your steam cleaner. For example if you add 3 teaspoons of clear dishwashing liquid, 1/4 cup of ammonia, and 1/4 cup of vinegar to a few gallons of water, you should be able to remove most stains from your carpets. Another super simple remedy that has been used with success is a mixture of vinegar and hot water in equal parts. Professional carpet cleaners have acknowledged this as an effective carpet cleaning solution also.<br/> <br/>There are also some great carpet cleaning solutions that can kill odors as well as remove dirt from your carpets. For example one scoop of OxiClean, or one cup of generic Fabreeze and the recommended hot water will remove really tough odors from most carpets or couches. This is used instead of vinegar because vinegar itself leaves a strong smell and takes more time before the cleaned object is once again usable.<br/> <br/>Even further, there are options available that can allow you to remove unsightly stains when you don't need the entire carpet cleaned. Some people have successfully used club soda poured onto the stain and blotted dry with a towel while others have simply used extremely hot water and some elbow grease as an effective one off carpet cleaning solution.<br/> <br/>Raleigh Carpet Cleaning
