The “Unique” Way To Clean Your Carpet

The “Unique” Way To Clean Your Carpet

Working out with the Stay at Home orders had lead me to do a zoom yoga workout in my bedroom. I put my yoga mat down and started my down dog and thought, “Ugh this carpet smells horrible. I spent the rest of the workout plotting how I was going to solve the odor problem. The odor was not from any accident, but just dogs that have played outside rolling in all kinds of wonderful things like elk  and chicken poop,  pure wonderful doggie perfume, then sleeping and rolling around on my floor.

 

I decided to use our Unique Carpet Shampoo but try a new method from one of our reps. I will call it the CJ method. I cleaned the whole room and hallway with the recovery tank off. I made the solution a little stronger than normal and used 6 oz to a gallon. There were a few stains so I went over those several times slowly so the brushes could agitate it well and I made sure the carpet was really damp in those spots. When you use bacteria to clean you have to allow enough time for the bacteria to do its work, biodegrading the odors. The bacteria will multiply as long as they have moisture and a food source. I am sure that that carpet had plenty of food source!

 

I left the carpet quite damp and used that time to read a bit and relax. After 4 hours I went back, put on the recovery tank and cleaned the carpets like I normally do. Use a 4 oz to 1gallon concentration of Unique Carpet Shampoo and went over the whole floor again. I went slowly and really let the machine work scrubbing the carpet and extracting out the dirt and odors. I did put down damp white towels on my high traffic areas and the spots. I took those off the next morning when the carpet was almost dry. By the end of the day it was completely dry and looked wonderful.

 

The day after I really stuck my nose in the carpet while I was doing my down dogs and sun salutations, and I am happy to report it just smelled clean and fresh, no more doggy odor. I am so glad I could solve the issue before I had people over and was embarrassed because the house smelled doggy. I will use the CJ method when I have the time to deep clean the carpets and I would recommend you give it a try.
