  • I vacuum my carpet every day if not twice a day with this amazing little stick vaccuum by dirt devil. But I try and steam clean my carpet once a week and I use a vinegar/water solution- half and half - because it has amazing germ killing and cleaning effect on the carpet... I was able to find a steam cleaner for $16 at a thrift store. If there is a stain, I use borax, which is found in the laundry aisle, or a baking soda/cream of tartar mix 3/1 ratio (water is the paste maker) and then wipe it up with vinegar...

  • My husband and I own a carpet cleaning business using a low moisture method (steam cleaning machines can lead to mold and mildew growth in your carpet and carpet pad)! We will use it in our home in the Fall and again in the Spring. It also helps with the indoor air quality.

    I vacuum twice a week

  • Have new carpeting, and they told us to wait one year before cleaning. Only two of us here.
