But in people's using, some shortcomings make people felt very headache, such as easily dirty, not easily clean, collect and easy discoloration, not resistant to compression, easily leaving marks and so on. Here we provide some cleaning methods:
The Selecting of carpet
When selecting and purchasing carpets, the size should match with the ground size. The luster and performance should match with occasion for using.
The channel should select carpets against dirt and frication, and the living room chooses soft material, magnificent appearance of senior chemical fiber carpet or wool carpet and so on. Generally speaking, the type of textile fiber, the quantity and density of carpet pile head and the height of pile head influence carpet quality largely. The silk and the wool's overall performance are best. The carpet of high pile head is soft, but is not easy to clean. In addition, good carpet's surface is smooth, and carpet thickness is even. After pressing gently, carpet pile can restore original condition. The backing immediately does not have wears. The lining back should be supposed to be reliable with backing, not getting free. When selecting and purchasing carpet, we also should pay attention to price and look whether reasonable. The wool carpet by hand is expensive, and the chemical fiber acupuncture carpet is inexpensive.

Therefore, it is supposed to avoid carpet to be sticked in by commonly used chemical, like detergent, skin care cosmetic and so on. In addition, the carpet cannot for a long time be exposed to sunlight, or they can fade. The carpet needs frequently to be cleaned by cleaner, because the dust accumulating in the carpet can cause attrition to textile fiber, and make carpet become gloom.

(5)dry cleaning carpet by single-deck floor sweeping machine with carpet brush and froth hitter.
(6)stop for a little while, then repeat;
(7)Comb carpet face with carpet comb and harrow. This is extremely important for appearance, especially cotton velvet carpet with long fiber. Moreover this has function of speeding up desiccation;
(8) make carpet completely dry;
(9) Absorb dirt and draining froth crystalline substance with cleaner.
(2) pump washing(for chemical fiber carpet)
1. Equipment: carpet brush, sprayer, water sampling machine, carpet washer;
