I am SO glad that Spring is here! We have thrown open the windows and I’m on a mission now to get our house ready for Spring and Summer! You know what that means – it’s time for “Spring Cleaning”!
After the long winter with our house shut up tight, it felt good to get some cleaning done. I couldn’t wait to clean our couches. We actually haven’t gotten them “deep cleaned” before and I’m sure they badly needed it. After all, we have a toddler, a dog and a cat! Okay, and 2 adults!
We got out our Rug Doctor Mighty Pro with the Hand Tool to clean both our couch and loveseat.
The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro is the perfect machine to clean your carpets, couches and even your carpets in your car! If you’re looking to clean a living room where you have a fireplace, I definitely recommend looking into an ash vacuum.
The Rug Doctor has many advantages over other carpet cleaning tools!
– Large Capacity: The Mighty Pro has a 2.6 gallon solution tank which means less time stopping to refill and empty it!
– Vibrating Brush: Rug Doctor uses a vibrating brush with back and forth motion to thoroughly clean each fiber as it lifts and fluffs leaving a soft and clean carpet! They are the only ones to use this type of brush!
– The Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval: The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro is the only extractor for the consumer market that is approved for superior cleaning by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI). The CRI Seal of Approval program identifies effective carpet cleaning solutions and equipment that clean carpet right the first time and protects a facility’s carpet investment.
Cleaning our couches were really easy with the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro! We used the Upholstery Cleaner and you should make sure to use the Anti-Foam with it to prevent overflow of suds.
We vacuumed our couches to make sure we had everything off of it. It’s recommended to take the cushions off and lay on the floor while cleaning and we tried it both ways.
My husband couldn’t wait to get started on cleaning!
The machine was pretty loud so I wasn’t able to make a video like I wanted to. My husband was having so much fun though and I had to ask him to please let me have a turn!
After cleaning, the fabric is wet for awhile so we made sure we cleaned on a day that our toddler was at Grandma’s house so he was tempted to get on the couch. We had to make sure to keep our pets away too. The cleaning solutions are water-based and non-toxic of course but it’s always best to keep them away until the fabric or carpets are completely dry.
Okay, I’m going to go ahead and show you how dirty my couches were. I have to admit that this is one of the best things about the Rug Doctor. You actually get to see the results of how clean you got it!
Yuck, right? I’m definitely going to be making sure I’m cleaning my couches a lot more often – that goes for the carpets too!
How often do you clean your couches?
