How to Make Your Own Carpet Cleaner

Commercial carpet cleaning products can be expensive, and still can not meet your expectations. Many carpet powders just remove odours, making the carpet to smell fresh without necessarily cleaning it. You can make your own dry cleaning solution to deodorize and clean your carpet.
The solution absorbs moisture as well. Using a broom helps the dry cleaner to penetrate deep into the fibers of the carpet.
Here are the steps how to make your own carpet cleaner using non-toxic products:
  1. For a carpet section with measures 10x10 feet, carpet cleaning St John's Wood suggests to use 2 cups of cornstarch, 2 cups of baking soda, 1 cup of borax and ½ cup of salt. The ingredients are mixed into a covered container.
  2. Sprinkle the dry cleaning solution on your carpet and use broom to brush the powder into the carpet fibers. Spread the powder into the carpet's pile by brooming in all directions.
  3. Allow the cleaning solution to sit for the night if possible, and then vacuum it up. The ingredients include in your carpet cleaner help absorbing moisture, deodorizing and disinfecting. This homemade carpet cleaner eliminates bacteria and odours, leaving you with a fresh carpet.
Keep in mind that except to be refreshed, carpets need to be thoroughly cleaned at least once an year. However, if the carpet is installed in heavily traffic area then it should be deep cleaned more often. Deep carpet cleaning is not an easy task especially if the carpet is heavily stained. You can try to do it on your own, but you will ensure that it is easier and more effective to hire professionals such as carpet cleaning St John's Wood team to do the job for you.
