1. Always blot
Scrubbing a stain or spill has adverse effects. In fact, scrubbing stains actually drive the stain down into the carpet and makes it worse. That’s why you should always gently dab any spill with a cloth or sponge with a cleaning solution.
Another tip is that you should always dab from the outer edge of the stain, and then make your way towards the center. This is because dabbing outward, as in beginning from the center and making your way outwards, can spread the stain onto your carpet.
2. Chewing gum Carpet Cleaning
Chewing gum is in every household. You may accidentally drop them or your children may stick it onto the carpet themselves. Your friends or family members can step on gum while they’re outside, and then inadvertently bring that strictly mess onto your carpet.
In any case, you can remove chewing gum from your carpet by using ice cubes. Press ice cubes against the gum for approximately 30 to 45 seconds. The gum needs to be visibly frozen solid for this tip to work. Then, use a spoon to lift up the gum and with scissors, cut the carpet strands as close as possible to the frozen bubble gum.
3. Cleaning Carpets With Beer And Wine
To get rid of beer and wine stains, use club soda and vinegar. Pour club soda onto a cloth and dab the stain carefully. If the stain appears lighter, you should repeat with more club soda.
However, don’t fret if that doesn’t work. Mix a one-to-one ratio of white vinegar and water. Slowly damp the solution onto the beer or wine stain, then wait approximately 10 or 15 minutes for it to soak in. Then, dab the area with a dry material to soak up the cleaning solution as well as the diluted stain.
4. Regular Professional Carpet Cleaning
If you live with friends or family members, you should invest in a professional carpet clean at least once a year. If you have pets, then every 6 months is often necessary. Living in an unhygienic environment can have detrimental impacts on your mental health, as well as the mental health of your loved ones.
There is a huge difference between a simple carpet cleaning done by yourself, and cleaning completed by experienced professionals.
Leaving it too late before getting your carpet cleaned can cause damage to the carpet fibres and may make it more difficult to clean. Not convinced? Check out our post where we reveal the benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaning service.
