Good morning campers.

 

My caravan has removable carpets which while not exactly soiled could do with a once over.

 

In your experience what is the best way to clean them.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

Mine have bonded rubber backing. I use the rotary car cleaner fitting on a powerwasher. Then a rinse off on low power setting.

 

 

Thanks for the reply, mine do not have a rubber backing it's more of a nylon weave arrangement, the carpets are light duty I think.

 

My first thought was to remove the light soiling in areas with a foam cleaner like you would use on upholstry but I then thought this may leave them looking patchy, so I would rather clean the whole carpet.

We have a vax carpet cleaner which brings them up a treat. The idea above re: power hosing is a good idea. Most carpets will stand up to it and the power hose will drive out deep down dirt.

Well I laid out the carpets on a ground sheet, got on my hands and knees with a bucket of warm water mixed with a generous solution of the Vanish stain remover gel (got a litre bottle from the supermarket) Rubbed them over with a soft nylon scrubbing brush, then hung them over the washing line and got the power washer to em, result they came up a treat I am wet through though.

 

Ps they smell really good too.

 

Thank you to everyone who offered help.

Just come in from doing mine! I am using Vanish Carpet Shampoo. ..quite pricey at about £4. 79 (Tesco) but it seems to do the job. .mine are also nylon web backed so don't want to soak them as had similar ones in a Lunar and they never fitted well again!

 

cheers
