Clean A Badly Stained Apartment Carpet

This video is the actual footage of a professional carpet cleaner’s experience cleaning a badly stained carpet at a rental home. The machine used was the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3. The carpet pro, Joe, said that the carpet at this had been cleaned just five months prior. Five months later, the carpet was quite visibly, filthy, heavily stained and badly needed cleaning. Joe and his crew were called in to help.

The footage runs for half an hour, but put simply, it is a guide on how to properly clean a carpet that is thoroughly dirty or has not been cleaned in months with a relatively inexpensive device – the Rug Doctor X-3. A similar professional grade Rug Doctor is available for rental from supermarkets. It’s more expensive than standard consumer upright carpet cleaners, but a lot of home users do buy it outright.

As Joe noted in his user description, he created the channel to let people know that carpet cleaning can be cheap and does not require high-grade equipment.

Aside from this, Joe also discussed, in the first few seconds of the video, the steps he took to clean the carpet.

By the end of the video, the carpet is visibly cleaner. However, since the carpet had been in the apartment for a long time prior to the present tenants’ occupancy, it will take many similar cleanings to actually remove all traces of accumulated dirt and grime from the material.
