How can you use laundry detergent in a carpet cleaner?

I asked that same question once and almost got eaten alive by the professionals I was speaking with. Laundry detergent is not a good carpet cleaning solution.

The problems emerge, among other reasons, from the fact that laundry detergent is made to be used on objects that will be rinsed from both sides after the detergent is applied. Which is not possible when applying it to a carpet that is stuck to the floor. Using detergent in that scenario will invite the growth of mold and other complications.

The professionals I mentioned above complained that they often get called in to try and fix the damage caused by home-made cleaning attempts.

The bottom line is: if you need to clean your carpet, its best to use products made for carpets. Or just call in the professionals. You can visit Bourne To Clean to find professional end of tenancy cleaning in Bournemouth.
