You should start by retreating any areas that you think will be a problem. Coffee or juice spills heavy traffic areas or pet mess areas are all potential areas for pretreatment. One thing to note about pet messes; there are many good enzyme based cleaners that can be purchased at your local pet store that are great to clean pet messes. This usually involves cleaning the area several days or even weeks ahead of time to allow the enzyme formula to work. This schedule should be planned around the date you need to clean the carpet by. If you really think some areas may be a problem a little scrubbing with the brush to help release some stains would not hurt.
Most people are familiar with the fact that padding lies below the carpet which helps give it its comfortable feel when you walk on it. This is the bottom layer. Common types of padding include foam (cheap) rebond frothed foam slab rubber waffle rubber fiber (such as jute recycled textiles synthetic fibers etc.) and in some cases special Berber padding. Between the pile and the padding is the backing which is made of two layers and holds the fibers together so the carpet doesnt fall apart. When the carpet is manufactured needles are used to push the fiber through the primary backing. Its then sealed against the secondary backing with very strong adhesive to keep everything in place.
Most carpet cleaners on the market today require a two step process to the cleaning action. Since the solution sprayers are located behind the agitating brush and the extraction head the solution needs to be laid down first in a forward sweeping motion. Pushing down slightly and squeezing the dispensing lever dispense the solution along the desired path you wish to clean. Then following the same path in the return stroke release the solution dispensing lever and pull the machine back to the point to where you first started the stroke. The extraction head is in front of the agitator so on the return stroke the fibers in the carpet are being scrubbed then the excess water is being sucked up by the extraction head.
If there is just one Berber carpet row that has been pulled it can be re-burled (glued back into place). If the Berber carpet run is more serious say for example a dog was trapped in a room and tried to dig her way out then a patch is in order. If your Berber carpet is loose then it will need to be stretched. Stretching Berber carpet isnt really any different than stretching carpet of any other type. If a carpet comes apart at the seam it can be repaired in several different ways. One way is to glue it back together another way would be to remove the old seam tape and do the entire seam over. If the seam that came apart is on a Berber carpet then it becomes a bit more challenging.
