Carpet rakes aren't new tools, but most people may not know about them and their carpet-refreshing powers. It is the ideal tool for quick and easy carpet maintenance. Running a carpet rake over an old or matted carpet can bring some life back to it, which is especially useful in rental apartments infamous for drab beige carpeting.
The carpet rake is great to use on high-traffic areas to give the area more texture, or just using the rake to loosen carpet fibers for more thorough vacuuming or deep cleaning. Using the carpet rake loosens and lifts embedded soil and pet hair before vacuuming. Best of all, they are very affordable, depending on the type you want.
Whether your apartment just hasn't had its carpet replaced in the past four tenants or you're just noting your carpet in your home isn't looking as bright as it used to, a carpet rake may be a worthwhile purchase before spending money on new floors.
As Professional Carpet Cleaners and a Carpet and Rug Cleaning Service, Victoria Carpet Care ALWAYS use a Carpet Rake after cleaning and shampooing carpets to speed drying time.
To summarize, here are 3 ways you can use a carpet rake:
• You can rake your carpet before vacuuming, to loosen debris and fibers for better vacuuming results.
• You can rake your carpet after vacuuming, to pull up matted carpet and give your carpet that "like new" look and feel.
• Or you can rake your carpet before a deep cleaning to restore it to its previous glory.
Tips and Warnings
~ Carpet rakes can be used to freshen a carpet without vacuuming. Area rug fringe can be straightened with a carpet rake.
~ Carpet rakes are for plush, cut pile carpets. Do not use a carpet rake on a Berber or woven carpet as it may "pull" the fibers.
