My carpets are in bad shape. About 5 years ago, we stopped cleaning the carpet with a rug shampoo-er because the cats would throw up the day/days later.
Presumably the chemicals the shapoo-er would leave behind.
Now that the carpets are in bad,dirty shape, Any recommendations/advice, How to safety clean the carpet?
Is there such a thing as a rug/carpet machine that cleans with just hot water?

Or is there a recommended carpet cleaner solution that may not be as harsh?

Thanks

About the technology of a steam clean machine; renting ,buying or having it done professionally, I checked into a 'steam clean machine', i could not determine if they steam using water, Or water and a solution of some sort.

Call some cleaning companies and ask specifically if their machines use water only or a combination of water and detergent. Ask if they can do water only. I think "hot water extraction" is the industry term for water only.
