We have a new 2 year old townhome that has standard carpet installed.
We upgraded the pad but not the carpet.
There are no kids or pets in the house and we vacuum it on-and-off
Now I find that in areas of high usage, the carpet looks awfully old
(other areas look much much better).
Is there a way to rejuvenate the carpet. I hear horror stories of
shampoo based cleaning. Would steam vacuum bring it back to life?
Thanks in advance
Can't hurt to try a Rug Doctor or other rental cleaner. These don't
use "shampoo", they use hot water and a detergent that doesn't produce
a lot of suds. Rug Doctor (and I assume others) have pre-treament
solutions for high-traffic areas. I just did my house this weekend
and was impressed by the visible and tactile changes to various grades
Try a spray upholstery foam, let sit a moment and scrub with a nylon
Not as harsh as carpet cleaners.
