Berber Carpet

What is the best cleaning method for Berber carpet?

ANSWER:  Research has determined the water extraction method of cleaning, such as used in a BISSELL upright deep cleaner, is an effective way of cleaning Berber carpet.

It is always a good idea to contact your carpet manufacturer or retailer for specific cleaning recommendations on the carpet in your home. Some types or designs of Berber carpet have a tendency to "fuzz" with wear or repeated rubbing. It is generally recommended you vary the direction of the machine during cleaning and avoid repeated stroking or rubbing in one area.

For best cleaning results with Berber carpet, we recommend treating the entire area to be cleaned using either of the following methods:

Pretreat the area with BISSELL Tough Stain PreCleaner. Spray the area according to the product directions. Gently agitate the area with the brush on your deep cleaner's floor nozzle, powerbrush, or DirtLifter Powerbrush. Wait 15 to 20 minutes before deep cleaning with your machine, allowing the formula to break down and loosen embedded dirt and tough soils. Or...

Lightly pre-spray the entire area using hot tap water and BISSELL Fiber Cleansing Formula, following the product instructions. Gently agitate the treated area with the floor nozzle brush, powerbrush, or DirtLifter Powerbrush. Wait 15 to 20 minutes before deep cleaning with your machine, allowing the formula to break down and loosen embedded dirt and soils.

Following the machine instructions and using hot tap water, deep clean the area with your machine. Use very slow strokes to enhance the water retrieval process. Ventilate the area well, using a fan to help accelerate the drying process.
