How do carpet cleaners work

Carpet cleaning

Carpet cleaning is very easy with the right Kärcher products.

Vacuum cleaner - for thorough cleaning results

Kärcher vacuum cleaners ensure thorough, fiber-deep cleanliness on carpets. The cleaning liquid is sprayed in deeply with pressure and sucked off together with the loosened dirt. Grease, dirt and odors are effectively removed.

The principle of washing vacuum

In the case of washing and vacuuming, the water is sprayed on with the cleaning agent in one operation and immediately sucked off again with the dirt.

Hygienic and clean

The Kärcher vacuum cleaner is not only ideal for allergy sufferers. Households with animals are also part of the target group.

Vacuum cleaner with innovative water filter technology

Unlike a conventional vacuum cleaner with a filter bag, the newly developed DS 5.800 vacuum cleaner with a water filter relies on the natural power of the
Water that is swirled around in the filter at high speed. The sucked in
Dirt is guided through the water vortex, reliably filtered out of the air and in the
Water bound. The result: exceptionally fresh, clean exhaust air.

Carpet cleaning tips

Why should you clean a carpet?

Regular cleaning (maintenance, intermediate and thorough cleaning) preserves the appearance of your carpet, increases its lifespan and ensures hygiene. Since the carpet is not only soiled visibly on the surface, but also in depth, the need for cleaning is not immediately apparent. It is very important to regularly remove dirt and properly treat stains.

So-called spray extraction is used for thorough cleaning of a carpet. We recommend the Kärcher vacuum cleaners in combination with the cleaning agents RM 769 and 760.


This is how you proceed with a thorough carpet cleaning:

  1. Prewash: First, the water and the cleaning agent (cleaning solution) are sprayed on via a nozzle at a specified pressure at a distance of 10 cm. The cleaning agent should work for about 10 minutes.
  2. Main wash: Now the floor nozzle is pulled over the carpet and the cleaning solution is worked into it. The loosened dirt is sucked up in the same or the next work step.
  3. Rinse: Now it is rinsed with clear water and the cleaning solution is sucked off together with the dirt using the suction nozzle.
  4. Suction: After drying, the carpet should be vacuumed thoroughly with a carpet vacuum.
