If you have a fairly new carpet cleaner that is past its warranty but keeps cutting out because there is something wrong with the electrical cord that plugs into the wall, take it to a repair shop. Not only does it make it difficult to clean when you are moving the cord and trying to keep the power going, but it also could be a safety concern.
You want to be sure there are not electrical complications that could spark a fire or be a concern internally in the carpet cleaner. Here are things to consider to improve the performance of the machine and to keep it running for longer.
Get the Cleaner Repaired
Take the carpet cleaner to a small machine repair shop and have a new cord put into the unit. This is something that can be repaired and should cost a fraction of what the expense would be to replace the unit. The machine repair service may be able to give the machine a tune-up and clean it out to ensure prolonged use for the carpet cleaner in the future.
Cleaning the cleaner internal chambers and replacing the filters will help with sanitization. Talk with the repair professionals to see if there are any other parts that you should replace or change regularly.
Try New Cleaning Products
Look into different cleaning products for the machine to keep your carpet looking great. There are some cleaning products that are not just great for getting the carpet clean but also that help to condition the carpet with proteins. This will help to make the carpeting strong, and it will also help to keep it soft.
Clean the Carpet Regularly
Cleaning the carpet regularly prevents the machine from having to deal with large amounts of filth and grime at one time. Consider cleaning the carpet regularly so your machine can work easily to maintain it.
If you have a new carpet cleaning unit and it is having electrical problems, consider getting it looked at before you replace it. Take the time to have a small machine or appliance repair professional examine the cleaner, and then see if it's worth saving the unit. The more you maintain the unit, the longer it's going to last, and the better it will be at cleaning your carpet. Don't use the unit for your own safety until you have it looked at.
