23 Jul Three Tips For Deep Cleaning Your Carpet
Tips For Deep Cleaning Your Carpet
Most homeowners choose carpet to give their home a warm and inviting feel. However, it can be very embarrassing when your carpet gets dingy or stained. If you avoid inviting your family and friends over because your carpet has stains or a dingy appearance, you need these three tips for deep cleaning your carpet.
First, in order to make your carpet last longer, you should vacuum regularly. Dirt can build up and penetrate into your carpet’s fibers causing extensive damage as well as trapping allergens in the home. Heavy dirt builds up can make a carpet look overly dingy and cause stains to penetrate further into the carpet.
Clean Up Spills Immediately
Cleaning up stains immediately is key to avoiding deep staining in your carpet. Stains happen, but you can avoid bad odors and permanent stains by tackling the stain immediately. Should the spill be solid, try to scrape off as much of it as possible with dry paper towels before tackling any resulting stain on the carpet. Avoid rubbing the stain, instead try to gently pick or lift it off the carpet so as to minimize the stain.
After having scraped off the spill, you can then clean the spot with clean water. Remember to dab or blot out the stain in circular motions while working from the outside inwards.
Use Mild Cleaning Agents
Use mild cleaning agents on any stain or heavy traffic areas. Try water first, but if that doesn’t work, a mild detergent can be used. Adding a detergent can rid your carpet of most stains you come across. Look for a Rug and Carpet Institute certified detergent!
