Buying Carpet Cleaners to Remove Pet Stains

Carpet cleaners are used to clean large, soft surfaces including carpets, rugs, and upholstery. These places can see a variety of different stains, from wine spills to pet urine. The following information includes ideas on what to look for when removing pet stains.

What’s the Ideal Machine?

When removing pet stains from rugs and carpets, always opt for a powerful, low flow carpet extractor. Choose a carpet cleaner based on the cleaning task at hand and what surfaces you intend to clean. For instance, delicate fabrics like Persian rugs and wool may damage under high heat and therefore machines utilizing cold water are recommended. Durable carpets can be cleaned more quickly with the added power of heat.

Carpet cleaners that feature low flow technology help reduce water consumption and the possibility of mold, germ, and odor from forming. They also allow carpets and upholstery to dry much quicker, in some cases as little as one hour.

Removing Pet Stains

It is better to have a heated machine for removing pet stains, if the carpet fibers can sustain high temperatures. Daimer carpet cleaners, such as the XTreme Power® XPH 5800T, reach temperatures up to 210°F. These machines not only help in cleaning the surface, but they remove odors as well.

Carpets must be pre-sprayed before cleaning. Using a green cleaning product, such as Daimer®’s Eco-Green® Carpet Care & Upholstery Cleaner, is a safe alternative to toxic, harmful chemicals. These green products enhance the cleaning efficiency of carpet cleaning machines, without harsh chemicals that damage the surface or the environment.

Daimer®, a premier distributor of cleaning products, offers a wide array of carpet cleaners and green cleaning products. For more information, visit

Carpet Cleaners – Advice on How to Use Them

It is important to know the limits of your carpet before you decide to purchase carpet cleaners. Knowing your carpet means you must know what type of cleaning techniques work best for different types of carpets.

Carpets are made from a variety of materials, use different types of dyes and patterns, and carry many types of embellishments. They are laid on floors using different methods – glue, tiny nails and brackets, stitching, and so on. Knowing these details before purchasing carpet cleaners ensures proper cleaning without damage.

Persian carpets and antique carpets, for example, are not durable enough to withstand the high temperatures of some carpet cleaners. When expose to high heat, these materials may shrink or the dyes may start to bleed. For this reason, it is recommended to use non-heated cleaning.

Glue is also used for attaching carpets to the floor, particularly in commercial areas with high pedestrian traffic. High heat can melt certain glues, causing the carpet to bunch, which can pose a slip-and-fall hazard to pedestrians. The XTreme Power® XPC-12000 from Daimer® is just right for such carpets, because this machine offers cold water as well as lukewarm water cleaning.

Knotted carpets are usually the most durable. These carpets, along with many other types, can be cleaned using water as hot as 210°F, the high temperatures reached by Daimer®'s heated XTreme Power® carpet cleaners. These machines can also be used for applying detergent solution to the carpet, agitating it by using the wand, and then extracting the dirty water. For delicate virtually all carpets with a range of different types of challenging stains, it is recommended to use Daimer®’s Eco-Green Carpet Care & Upholstery Cleaner with the steam carpet cleaning machines. This will boost cleaning efficiency and will not damage the carpet. For best results, pre-spray the carpet with this solution first and let dwell.
