I recently used a Rugdoctor to a cleaning of carpet in Vancouver
and I just wanted to know about how long before it is safe to bring my bird back into my room. I know there is no set time but I was just wondering about a general guideline.
I have had it with my carpets. They need to be cleaned, especially near the entry way. There are no pet stains, just the usual grime, and dirt that comes in on shoes and what not. I have been afraid to steam clean because of the birds, but think that I need to break down and do it. Usually, in the past, we've moved before needing to clean the carpets, but we've been here a while. Anyways, I am thinking of renting a rug doctor, but don't really want to use a toxic cleaning solution. I can move the birds upstairs while I do this, but not out of the house. I have heard that just plain water can lot of times do the job and then use a cleanser on tough spots. I have heard GSE can work well or white vinegar, but I don't want a vinegar smell either. What do you guys use? If there is a product out there that is safe I would use that, but I don't know what to use. My friend uses Natures Miracle because of dog pee stains. I don't have that issue, just dirt. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
