When new brands offer furniture and carpet cleaners, a typical situation arises – it is difficult for buyers to make a choice, it is difficult to navigate the product line, which often consists of several dozen items.
Wieberr TM furniture and carpet cleaners, which began to conquer the Ukrainian market in 2019, are no exception to this rule.
As a result, managers were forced to regularly speak, write, or otherwise tell customers which dry cleaning kit they needed to buy. This article is written to simplify the counseling process.
Furniture and carpet cleaners: starter kit
As a rule, the way of dry cleaning begins with the purchase of a conditional “minimum required set”. This is a kit that allows you to cover the maximum number of needs for furniture cleaners, but includes only widely used and fairly versatile tools. Of course, we assume that this is the most common type of cleaning – extraction.
Typically, this kit includes the following types of cleaners:
- pre-wetting agents – pre-sprays;
They are used for pre-soaking dirt. As a rule, such a tool is included in the very starting set, and it is an enzyme-containing alkaline pre-spray. The solution of such a tool is sprayed on trampled tracks or very dirty carpets, sofas are treated before cleaning, and in high concentrations are used as a means to remove stains.
Wieberr’s line of furniture and carpet cleaners includes Enzime Hard Clean.
- alkaline agent for basic cleaning;
How alkaline such a cleaning agent depends on the preferences of each craftsman or school, but it is usually a product that provides the ability to clean with medium aggressiveness at pH 8-10. Solutions of some of these products, of course, do not need to be washed off, because they do not contain aggressive components, of course, there are a lot of caveats.
In the Wieberr line in Ukraine, there are two products for alkaline extraction cleaning – powder composition Extract Powder Biosolv and liquid Extrakt 10. Preparations are optimized for work with a vacuum cleaner, give little foam, clean textile surfaces well.
- alkaline stain remover;
Stain removal is one of the main tasks of dry cleaning. General cleaning agents for furniture and carpets are typically only effective for fresh stains that are not yet firmly attached to the fiber, and not all. Many stains have a high resistance to cleaning, to remove them requires more aggressive drugs, and the first in this series are alkaline stain removers.
It is not necessary to process large areas with such chemicals, but to apply locally and then guarantee to wash well aggressive components from the fabric or carpet – is quite acceptable.
A good example of such a stain remover is Skaria Cleaner.
- solvent-based stain remover;
It is clear that the spots are different, and the above-mentioned alkaline stain remover copes with only some of them. In addition, there are different materials to work with and the greasy stain on the hair can not be removed with alkali – wool can not stand. Therefore, solvent-based preparations are used to remove stains from paints, varnishes, chewing gum, and rubber glue. They, solvents, are also different, but the set of cleaners for furniture and carpets, in the first place should include a liquid agent for removing stains on terpenes.
In the Wieberr line, it is a Grease Eliminator stain remover. This drug is one of the most successful means of removing stains in this group in general.
- acid rinse aid.
Alkaline pre-spray, alkaline cleaning, alkaline stain remover – all this is needed to clean as effectively as possible, but the alkaline environment is aggressive to most materials used in the construction of furniture and carpets, so after cleaning, it is desirable to wash and neutralize aggressive components. It is for the purpose of neutralizing alkali, washing away the remnants of aggressive detergents, as well as for cleaning delicate materials and acidic products.
Acid Cleaner is one of Wieberr’s furniture and carpet cleaners.
Furniture and carpet cleaners: an expanded set

Approaches to the formation of a set of chemicals for cleaning furniture and carpets
It often happens that the master, choosing his chemistry, goes to extremes. It happens that the whole set is limited to one or two means for cleaning furniture and carpets, and sometimes the opposite – dozens of tools, many of which duplicate each other’s functions.
