Having carpets means some serious maintenance. It is nearly impossible to keep them clean and cleaning them feels like such a painful process. However, by purchasing a carpet cleaner that is top-rated, you’ll find yourself dreading less and less cleaning your carpet and instead enjoying your clean floors. Invest in a carpet cleaner that doesn’t leave your carpets wet, has as adjustable heights to clean all floors, and is able to suck up pet hair.

Cleaning your carpets with a cleaning machine is simply step one. Step two is drying them so that the stench doesn’t stick around. Choosing a carpet cleaner that aids in the drying process will make your life so much easier. A unit that comes with forced heated air drying features is ideal, as it applies force directly to the carpet to make drying time much quicker.

Who wants to deal with multiple different devices to clean their floors? We don’t think anyone does. So, look for a carpet cleaner that works on multiple different types of flooring—from carpets to shag rugs to hardwood floors.

Pet Hair Pick Up

Make pet hair all over your floor a thing of the past with a carpet cleaner that will get rid of that built-up fur. A triple-action brush roll is a great way to get that pesky hair up, and a carpet cleaner that comes with specialized pet tools for tough-to-reach corners is going to make your home feel so fresh and so clean.
