Most commercial cleaning products contain strong chemical components, so it is always safer to check the product’s label and the manufacturer’s guide to see whether or not it is safe to use on the materials your carpet is made of.
This is yet another step to make sure the product is safe to use on your carpet. To do the patch test, first, choose an out-of-the-way corner of the carpet, Then spray a small amount of cleaner spray on that area, and wait for a few minutes to see whether any problem surfaces.

A carpet cleaner takes its heavy-duty cleaning power from a combination of powerful cleaning solutions, powerful scrubbing brushes and powerful suction. The mixture of cleaning solution and water gets injected deep into the fibre; the brushes scrub the carpet and cause the stains to get physically loosen up; and the cleaner’s suction sucks away the broken down debris.
A frequently asked question is whether or not a carpet cleaner heats up water. The answer is yes. Most manufacturers would recommend you to use hot tap water in the water tank of the cleaner, and have heating function with their machine in order to keep the water hot.
