Some Carpet Cleaning Tips
Here are a few tips that involve cleaning the carpet in your home. While it is recommended to have your carpets deep steam cleaned every 6-12 months by professionals, these tips will help in the interim.
A very good cleaning method that should be your first go to is the club soda method. Club soda works great with Carpet Stain Removal caused by beer and wine spills. First, try blotting or dabbing the spill with some of the club soda on the rag. The club soda will typically yield great results. You may have to repeat the procedure a couple of times to get the most effective results. If you are successful in removing the stain, you should then rinse the area with warm water. Then brush the carpet with your hand, to help the fibers get back to a natural position. Lastly, lay a paper towel or two on top of the wet area and put something on top of the paper towels to weigh them down. Leaving them there for a while will absorb the leftover moisture and leave the area looking great.
A great tip, which is the most important, is to dab when cleaning a spill. One of the worst things you can do is rub the mess. When you rub the mess on the carpet, you’re actually helping the substance to embed itself into the fibers of the carpet. The best way is to use a clean rag, paper towel or sponge in correlation with the cleaning product of choice and dab, or blot the mess. Blotting or dabbing the mess will absorb it into the rag rather than rub it deeper into the carpet fibers.
