There are many ways to clean a carpet and many different types of people who need to have their carpet cleaned. Some consider a simple vacuuming sufficient. Some of us like to get on hands and knees and scrub. There are even those of us like to simply set towels on spills, but those of us not in college, there are some that work a little more. There is the best way to clean carpet.

In the midst of the many versions and levels of carpet cleaning, many products and services are available. These range from spray on cleaners that dry and ultimately are swept or vacuumed up, to complex and large machines. There are literally dozens of options to pick from.

Some simple forms that can be found are like a spray on foam that is allowed to dry. These are common and quick forms of cleaning agents. Simply apply these directly to the stain in question, and let dry. Suck the mess up with a vacuum and you generally acquire decent results to a local spot.

Another type uses a powdered cleaning agent spread across a carpet, allowed to set in for 15 minutes. Then, utilizing a machine, the powder is pressed and worked into the carpet to increase its cleaning potential. Lastly, it is simply vacuumed up, taking dirt and debris with it. This is known as "dry cleaning" your carpet.

But we're looking for "the best" option for carpet maintenance. While opinions, of course vary, the following seems to be it, based on the general opinion. The following option is statistically what most people go for but you have to consider all possibly venues and pick what is the best for you.

There is a general consensus that the best method is "steam cleaning" a carpet. This is a misnomer, but a common term for the process - there's no steam, just really hot water. Still, this method is probably the most popular and is often done by hired professionals.

Often a machine will be required. You can rent them at grocery stores like a "Rug Doctor" for example. You can purchase one of your own, or pay a service to bring one and do it for you. This machine applies an extremely hot solution of water and cleaning agent to your carpet and then sucks up the excess dirty water leaving you with a cleaner looking carpet over all.

But as with all things there are a few downsides to this method as well. First of all, it is often considered the most expensive way to clean your carpet. It's not usually in danger of breaking your bank but it's a lot more costly than something you purchase in a box at the grocery store. In addition, it leaves your carpets slightly dewy so you won't be able to use them immediately after you're finished. It also requires you to move your furniture more often than not.

While the best way to clean carpet may be argued, lots of methods can be attempted. Carpets, like opinions, come in many different shapes and sizes. What is important to remember while cleaning your home, is that you're the one who has to live with it. You should always do what suits you the best.
