Soap and brush
Brushing the carpet tile with soap is an effective way to clean spots brought about by spills. Why this effort is needed is because you can’t just throw in the carpet tile in a laundry machine per piece. Usually, it has a vinyl material that does not allow liquid to pass through it. So by means of soap and brush, the stains on the fibrous part of the tile are removed. On drying the carpet tile, let it sit on open air and not with direct contact to sunlight as this might affect the color of it. Remember to use manufactured detergents as this is safe for use for any carpet tiles
Hot water extraction
The first two procedures above focus mainly on removing dusts and stains. This process on the other hand takes on two moves; cleaning and maintaining. Often times, frequent cleaning of carpet tiles can damage its look.
