Cleaning Carpets with Febreze Carpet Care Review

With a busy household and a long winter the carpets pull in a lot of dirt, stains and oils. The kids spend a lot of time in the living room laying on the carpets, playing games and going in and out. The carpet just seems to attract all the spills and dirt and looks worn out quickly. Spring cleaning and right before holidays is a great time to clean your carpets and freshin’ them up for the summer. We were sent a bottle of Febreze Carpet Care Deep cleaning an oxygen action formula along with a tough spot spray with Oxy stain remover and Pretreater.

I own a Hoover Platinum Collection Carpet Cleaner. It does a fabulous job cleaning the carpets and a save a ton of money by doing it myself. I pretreated all the spots on the carpet where the kids had spilled juice or whatnot. The carpet was in serious need of a cleaning and I was so excited to be able to tackle that on Saturday morning. I read the directions for adding it to the carpet cleaner although hoover suggests that you do not use any other cleaner besides their brand. It does state on the the Febreze carpet care bottle that it can be used with Hoover, Bissell, Dirt Devil and rentals carpet cleaning machines.

I measured out what the directions suggested and began to go to work. I usually washed my carpet 2x’s and rinse 4x’s. My children have allergies so I rinse extra to make sure the carpet is really clean and they come out looking great all the time. Using Febreze Carpet Care not only did they come out looking great but they smelled great!! The odors and dirt were pulled out of the carpet and left me with a beautifully clean smelling home. After washing the carpets we left the house for about 6 hours. When we returned home hubby walked in first and the very first thing he said was “Wow it smells great in here. The stuff you used smells really good.” I agreed. My daughter agreed and then the boys agreed.

The Spot cleaner pulled out about 90% off our stains. The carpet is 7 years old so I wasn’t expecting a miracle but I do think it did a great job and I’ll continue to use it on those first spills to avoid future stains. The carpet still looks great three days later. Thank you Febreze Carpet Care.

    Thanks for the review. I didn’t know Febreze made carpet cleaners. I will have to look for them. I would love to try the pet odor remover at my mom’s house. 🙂

  3. The difference of having a carpeted floor from a regular floor is the sheer comfort the materials give to the foot. That sense of being a royal (lol). Although the nasty part is the cleaning itself. If you have kids, then good luck. I think carpet cleaning is just like exercise. Also, understanding the right way to clean a carpet will save you time (and frustrations). My advise is these: right frequency vacuuming (use a CRI-approved vacuum). Clean and use products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to resoil quicker. Lastly, professionally deep clean carpets every 12 to 18 months to remove embedded dirt and grime.

    I’ll have to try the Febreze. Our (tan) carpets are almost 20 years old. Eek – I didn’t realize that until I wrote it. We take our shoes off in the house, which I think helps a lot as they really don;t look bad at all.

  17. Marcie W. says:

    We don’t have much carpet, but we do have white shag in our master bedroom (not our choice & was here when we purchased our home) I’d love to try the Febreze line with the carpet cleaning machine we own!
