I just sprayed a can of Silly String on my carpet
I am so disappointed, wished I'd read these review's first. Years ago I used this and it was brilliant, I even specifically asked my husband buy this brand when he did the shopping.
It foamed up fine but the nozzle didnt spray an even band, it just shot it out like silly string. This also means the coverage stated on the can was no where near the coverage in reality.
Freedom Pledge Carpet Foam doesn't foam, and doesn't clean
I shook the can until my arm ached but I still could not get this product to spray an even foam- just globs in thick strings that I had to manually even out using a damp cloth so my carpet would not show spotting. After using twice the amount of product to cover the floor because it would not coat evenly, my carpet looks pretty much the same as it did before I started. I would not use this product again, as it is a waste of money.
Ohh no I wish I had read the reviews !
I had 3 small vaseline spots on my carpet from my dog's sore elbow.
Now I have 3 ugly massive stains on my carpet after using this product ! Terrible !
Now I will have to pay a professional and hope he can repair this damage .
I am actually stunned that this product is allowed on the market .
Don't risk it . Do not use this Freedom carpet foam cleaner. Very disappointed.
I wish I had read the reviews first. Rookie error. I was looking to see if anyone else had the same problem as me and if they could fix it.
My carpet looks like a stained powdery mess after using this spray. I hope it is not ruined as I live in a rental. I did a spot check as instructed and had no problems. Now that my whole living room has been sprayed and vacuumed I can see it's a mess. Do not buy??
this product is a load of rubbish!
When I tried to spay it on the rug I could only get a thick blotchy layer of foam and it only covered about 3 square metres of the rug. It was supposed to cover up to 10 square metres. After 30 minutes it was no way near dry. Over two hours later it wasn't much better. Decided to get it off the rug because I thought it may bleach. I was left with a great greasy mess . I have now taken the whole rug outside and tried to wash it off. Please, please do not buy this rubbish.
DON'T BELIEVE THE BAD REVIEWS!!
After reading the bad reviews I was at the returns counter ready with my newly purchased can of carpet cleaner, with receipt, and expecting a refund when the lady told me she had used the product 2 weeks earlier and thought it did a great job. At our country supermarket the other option was that one in the bright pink packaging and I Know! that that one doesn't work. So I decided to take her word for it and came back home and used it. Not a problem; and it definitely worked better than the pink one. Must beware of who actually posts bad reviews.
Back to New
Had three rust spots in my NEW carpet that was caused by the underside of an old suit case. All I had in the house was Freedom Carpet Foam. Although this product is NOT recommended as a spot cleaner I wanted this stain gone! At first it looked like i was going to live with a bigger darker patch; but with a little patience and reapplication it was restored back to new, thankfully!
[+] Lucky me
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT! IT SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ALLOWED ONE STAR.
Like most other reviewers (which unfortunately I did not read before I used this product), I wanted to remove small red wine stains from my light mushroom wool carpet from a knocked over glass of wine. Not only did it not remove the stains, like most others, the area where I used it has visible foam marks from where it was sprayed and nothing I've done can get them out. Not my Dyson, not my Volta. It looks a mess. I will have to have a professional carpet cleaner to fix the horrible stains. I am just hoping that this dreadful product has not actually bleached my carpet.
I bought 2 cans to treat stains on wool carpet (Dirt from boots). The results were terrible, actually 400% worse and thought I would need to replace 90m sq of carpet. Went over again with Cavalier Bremworth carpet stain remove with excellent results. Freedom should not be able to sell the complete rubbish, Lucky not to be sued.
Avoid this product
Just as Dera and Monika have described, the foam dries to leave a sticky residue which can't be vacuumed from the carpet. I used it over an area about a meter square hoping to 'revive' it and remove a small mark. The area is now white with distinct stripes where the product sat and the original mark is still there. I didn't do a spot test because I wrongly assumed it was a product I'd used previously. Hopefully you are reading this review before you purchase a carpet shampoo.
Left white marks all over carpet
I followed instructions on can but this product couldn't be vacummed up by my strong Dyson vacuum cleaner. My floor was covered in white marks wherever the foam had sat on the floor. It also clogged up my vacuum cleaner.
I needed to hire a profession carpet cleaner at the cost of $80 to remove the residue of this product. There was no customer service number provided to call.
I would not recommend freedom carpet cleaning foam.
Questions & Answers
Can you leave freedom foam carpet cleaner on over night?
I would not use it at all. I had to get in my hands and knees and scrub the white residue off after leaving it on for 30mins.
I have used this product years ago and I left it on over night to help the oxidation activated ingredients work properly. I broomed it into the carpet to make sure no spots were missed. The carpet came up perfectly and I was impressed. Take my word it works properly!
