Carpets and floor coverings have great importance in home furnishing in regard to esthetics, sound and heat isolation. The usage of piece carpets instead of wall-to-wall carpets is widespread. These carpets are primarily cleaned in carpet washing plants. In this study, the investigation of cleaning facilities of the carpets in softer conditions with less water consumption was aimed. Carpets stained with ketchup were washed with and without ultrasound technology. Multicomparison tests using the color measurement values of washed and original carpet checked the effects of ultrasound, detergent, and washing time on stain removal. In the stain removal of the washed carpets, effects of washing type, washing agent, and washing time were important, α=0.05. The findings indicate that ultrasonic mediums can be an effective replacement for the soaking step in the washing process. Because it reduces washing time.
