Again always begin any cleaning process by vacuuming the carpet to remove loose soil, dust, dirt, and debris.

In a spray bottle, mix one part of distilled white vinegar and three parts of cold water. You will need to refill the bottle several times if cleaning a wall-to-wall carpet.

---Warning---

Before beginning spray the vinegar solution on a hidden part of the carpet to test out the colourfastness of the carpet, last thing we want is colour bleeding or change of colour on the carpets.

Working in a small 2-feet x 2-feet area, spray the vinegar solution onto the carpet until it's very damp. Do not over saturate. Follow the grid so you'll know what area you have cleaned.

Allow the solution to be absorbed for 4-6 minutes, this will break down any dirt in the area. Using a microfiber cloth, blot the solution. Have a clean bucket of water at the ready to rinse the cloth while ensuring you regular change the water to prevent it becoming to dirty.

Open the doors and windows to allow the carpet to air dry while avoiding any foot traffic until fully dry.
