How To Rent Carpet Steam Cleaners

A carpet steam cleaner is a great thing to have around even if your only have carpets in the bedrooms and hardwood everywhere else. With this machine you can clean out all of the dirt and grime that is stuck deep inside of your carpets. When you are finished cleaning they will look fuller and almost like new.

It is a great idea to purchase a good unit that you can use every few months at your leisure or to remove stains the moment they happen. Unfortunately not all of us have enough money to invest in the right unit. Instead they will rent one twice a year.

Find A Store

First you need to find a store in your area that will rent them out. You can call Home Depot, Kroger, Lowes, and Food Lion. Many of these chains will have certain programs that will allow you to pick a unit and rent it out for a day or two. Compare the prices and the models. Most companies will charge between $20 to $30 a day.

Find A Steam Cleaner

Next you need to find a cleaner that is going to work best on the type of carpets that you have. Inspect each one and don’t use anything that had dirty bristles, attachments, or water tank. If you see animal hairs on one and you are allergic than pass it over. Find one that moves easily and is large enough to cover the area in a short amount of time.

Find Supplies

Not all rentals will come with the necessary cleaning solutions and other supplies. You should look for a urine eliminator to get rid of any urine stains caused by pets or babies. Pre treatment should be used on the high traffic areas and set in stains. The most important is the cleaning solution that will wash everything. Make sure that it is compatible with the machine.

Learn How To Use It

If you are not familiar with carpet steam cleaners than ask the sales rep to give you a short demonstration. It is not going to do you any good if you don’t use it right. You will just be wasting money and your carpets will look no different than when you started.
