HG carpet cleaner can thoroughly clean and remove dirt from carpet and other fabric materials. This deep carpet cleaning product can easily and effectively clean your carpet. It also fills uneven fibre surfaces with a dirt-repellent layer, to prevent dirt from returning quickly.

Walking on a synthetic carpet damages the fibres, which means they retain dirt more easily. Woollen carpets can also slowly lose their natural wool grease, making it easier for a build up of dirt.

You can use this carpet cleaning product by hand or with any type of carpet cleaning machine, like a steam cleaner.

For large carpet stains, we recommend HG stain remover. This spray removes stains and dirt easily and also creates a dirt-repellent layer. For especially stubborn carpet stains, such as coffee, wine, grease or chocolate, we recommend HG stain remover extra strong.
