Sand in carpet

How do you get sand out of the carpet? I can sweep in the same place four ten minutes and it keeps coming up.:shrug:

Your best bet is to Shampoo the carpet. This will extract the sand/dirt better than just vacuuming. You can either use a shampoo machine or spray cleaner on the carpet, lightly mist it with water (enough to make it lather up), and extract it with a Wet/Dry Vac. After any kind of shampooing you want to let it air out and dry good though. Hope this helps. Chris

The most effective way I have found is an old carpet beater.Hang the carpet on a fence with the pretty side out and slap the sand out, the carpet is pushed back from the sand and the sand falls.

Second way is with a vacuum that pulls a high volume and low prssure, slide slats under the carpet so air can go through the carpet but a lot of carpets have glue that won't let air through. If there is no air flow on the bottom it doesn't help. Back to beating with a carpet beater or much patience with a vacuum.

I lived in Florida for about 6 years. The road I lived on was sand, and all the interior ranch roads were sand. I had enough sand in the floor of my truck to build a sand castle! I never could get it all out. I just learned to live with it
