8 Tips for Removing Pesky Carpet Stains

8 TIPS FOR REMOVING PESKY CARPET STAINS Clean carpets can easily transform the appearance of a well-worn home. But between cooking, raising children and owning pets, keeping a stainless carpet can seem impossible regardless of what your living situation may be. 1 BE PREPARED. Create your own personal carpet stain removal kit in case of any urgent situation. Consider including these items in your personalized kit: - Dishwashing detergent · Vinegar · Baking soda 1 Oil solvent I Dull butter knife • Paper towels ' Clean cloths By responding quickly and having these materials on hand, what would have been a stain emergency has turned into just another quick and easy clean up. RESPOND TO STAINS IMMEDIATELY. The longer you wait to remove a stain, the more difficult the job will be. Don't let your carpet suffer; address the spill immediately. This is highly recommended when it comes to pet stains which can eventually leave strong odors throughout the entire home. 3 REMOVE EXCESS SOLIDS.' If the stain is a solid of any sort, it is always necessary to remove the excess before continuing any clean up. A dull knife or spoon can be used to scrape most solid accidents. Next, blot the stain with a cleaning solution and a clean cloth, starting from the outside of the stain and working inward. 4 ALWAYS BLOT STAINS. NEVER RUB OR SCRUB! Rubbing a stain will spread the stain deeper and wider into the carpet fibers, making the appearance of the carpet look worse than it did before the initial clean up. With a clean cloth, paper towel or a sponge, apply pressure for about 30 seconds and repeat until the stain successfully fades. 5 KEEP FREQUENT TRAFFIC AREAS REFRESHED. There will always be areas in any household that are frequented or walked across more often than others. In between deep cleanings, use your typical spray, foam or powdered all-purpose carpet cleaner on the areas that are more heavily visited or used. And always be sure to follow the carpet cleaning product directions closely. Next, vacuum the area to remove any excess dirt. KEEP THE DIRT OUTSIDE.? Enforcing a “no-shoes-in-the-house" rule will make the world of difference in any home. Keep an open shoe rack near the doorway as a reminder to residents, and encourage all visitors to remove their shoes and place them on the shoe rack. This will quickly become a habit and eliminate an unnecessary amount of dirt dragged into carpets on a daily basis. 7 DEEP-CLEAN REGULARLY. Spot cleaning is important and effective, but ultimately, carpets need a regular deep-cleaning just like the rest of the household. Steam cleaning is powerful, time efficient and convenient. Steam cleaners can be rented or purchased for very affordable prices. Considerable steam cleaning once every three months. WHEN IN DOUBT, HIRE A PROFESSIONAL." Carpet cleaning professionals have access to stronger solutions and better materials for stubborn or set-in stains. Plus, they know what they're doing.
