I recently moved into my new place and have found that my carpet on my landing is completely flattened. I was told by a carpet cleaning company that it has been caused by too much cleaning product from a Vax carpet cleaner. I want to find a way of removing the excess cleaning solution and bring the carpet pile back up to what it should be. Any ideas on how i could do it without bringing in a cleaning company to do it.

  • a rubdown w/ a soaking wet hot towel will absorb anything water-soluble. repeat as needed.

Rent a carpet cleaner and don't put in any detergent. Just use hot water.
