Caring for your carpeting properly can seem like a daunting task, because there are so many products and options for portable carpet cleaners available. The good news is that many of the products used for carpets have been improved and refined in their safety and effectiveness. Portable carpet cleaners have also evolved in convenience, efficiency and effectiveness. It is simply a matter of educating yourself on the variety of choices out there to come up with the perfect portable carpet cleaner for your use. The first type of cleaner that you will want to have is a portable vacuum carpet cleaner. Vacuums should be used on carpet frequently to keep dust and dirt at bay and prolong the life and quality of your carpet. You can choose from upright vacuums or canister vacuums. The uprights are generally more popular because they are easier on your back and legs to use, and they tend to cover ground a little quicker. Canister vacuums can be a popular choice for stairs or car use, however.

Portable Carpet Cleaning Extractors

A carpet cleaning extractor is probably the next step up from vacuum in deep cleaning. The cleaning extractor will extract dirt from deep inside your carpeting by injecting a cleaning solution into your carpet and then vacuuming it back out, along with the dirt and grime your carpet has accumulated. The portable carpet cleaning extractors can also be used for vacuuming the carpet once the cleaning process is completed. Since this device is good for deep cleaning, it does not need to be used terrible frequently so it can be rented when necessary.

Portable Carpet Steam Cleaners

These are by far the most popular portable carpet cleaner for deep cleaning, and can be found for rent or purchase at many locations. If you decide to rent a portable carpet steam cleaner, you will probably find the rental fees to be extremely reasonable. You may have to spend more on the cleaning solutions that go into the machine however, and most portable carpet steam cleaners that you rent will recommend that you use the cleaning solutions that are manufactured to be used by that particular machine. Steam cleaning is a highly effective means of carpet cleaning, since steam will loosen the dirt and the machine will then vacuum the dirt away. Keep in mind with portable carpet steam cleaners that you want your carpet to dry out within 24 hours of using the machine, and it is a good idea to vacuum your entire carpet before and after the cleaning.
