Can a steam carpet cleaner replace a vacuum cleaner for general household cleaning?
We are considering buying a steam carpet cleaner instead of a vacuum, since we live in the country and our carpets get quite dirty? Does anyone know if this will work? I have read you should vacuum first and then steam clean. But we don’t want to buy both and we don’t have a lot of storage space. Thank you for any answers.
I don’t know about you, but I use a vacuum for a lot more than cleaning carpets. What about cobwebs, spider webs, bare floors, general dusting? I’d recommend getting a really good vacuum cleaner with a carpet beater brush, a canister one and not an upright since canisters are usually much more powerful, and it might help keep the carpets clean enough that you won’t have to shampoo them often. If they really get ridiculously dirty in spite of a good vacuum, it’s probably worth it to hire a pro once in a while. Their machinery does a much better job than what you can do yourself. You should be able to get a pretty good deal on a decent used very good quality vacuum at one of those stores that sells and services vacuums.
