Carpet cleaning tips with a solution for each stain

No matter how hard you try continue reading, it is inevitable that something will fall and spill on your carpet. There are many stains, spills, and dirt in life. These things can affect your carpet, but they don't have too.

General Carpet Cleaning Tips

You will get better results if you remove stains as soon as possible. In general, stains should be blotted rather than rubbed. Blotting absorbs the liquid, while rubbing causes it to get rubbed in the carpet. Blotting from the outside inwards will help absorb the liquid.

For carpets to last, they need a regular deep clean. Cleaning carpets is more effective if dirt that has accumulated over many months or years doesn't need to be removed. A steam cleaner or deep cleaning can help remove odors and deep-seated dirt.

Every surface can be stained.

It is best to treat stains prior to using a deep-cleaning vacuum or steam cleaner.

Alcohol, Cooldrinks and Urine:

To begin cleaning these spillages, you will only need 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar to 1 liter of water. Remember that blotting is more effective than rubbing.

Coffee, Tea, Blood, Chocolate, Vomit & Wine:

Absorb any liquid excess with a piece of paper towel. If your carpet is not made of wool or a wool blend, you can remove these stains. Ammonia can be diluted in water (one cup) [one teaspoon]. If your carpet is made of wool or a wool blend, you should use a mixture of water and laundry detergent. To finish, use your steam cleaner or deep-cleaning vacuum.

Candle Wax, oil & fat:

You don't need to be one. Use a hot iron to press a piece paper on top of the spill. The paper towel will stick to the wax, oil, or fat and leave the carpet as it was originally.

Nail Polish

Use a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover to gently dab the stain. To remove the stain, use as little nail polish as possible. Nail polish is a bleach that can damage fabric, including carpets.
