Powerful Techniques For Carpet Cleaning

By Jimmy Wang

Obvious, but still worth mentioning, the first best way to clean your carpet is to keep your carpet clean from the start. First, always remove your shoes when walking on the carpet, to help keep soil and stains from outside from being tracked onto the carpet. Then, when stains come along, treat them immediately before they set. And of course, a regular vacuuming is necessary to keep dust and other particles from being ground in.

Once a stain has hit your carpet, you’re stuck dealing with it. When doing this, be sure never to rub the stain into the carpet, which just smears it around. You’ll want to blot it instead. The ideal basic method to clean is to use a mixture of shaving cream and water, blot it down, then afterwards rinse, don’t blot, with a mixture of water and vinegar. This will help get most stains out.

When a dye is involved, you’ll want to try a mix of hydrogen peroxide and water to get it out. You’ll want to test it on a small area; to be sure it doesn’t do any damage. If it is a stain from food, often brake cleaner will do to get the stain out: it helps dissolve some of the compounds involved. Blot with the mixture, and then blot away with water.

Animal stains, with their odors, are the domain of enzyme products. Baking soda and peroxide can be a good follow up. Blot with water as needed to clear up the residue.

If you wind up with oil or grease on your carpet, these tricky stains may require a more specific product to deal with. Orange Clean, DeSolvit, Simple Green, and WD40 all can work in that regard. Blot on with the solution, wait half an hour, and then blot off. Sometimes it necessary to repeat, but it usually does the job.

Deeper cleaning jobs are sometimes necessary, and usually require a carpet cleaner be rented. This is for carpets that are showing signs of mattering, or deep discoloration, or for stains you’ve missed. In these cases, you’ll want to make use of single strokes rather than back and forth. Also, try to avoid putting pressure on the device. When you’re done, fluffing them helps with drying. And of course, don’t walk on them until they’re dry.
