It happens even to the most meticulous. Your carpet, being subject to heavy traffic is exposed to dirt and other elements. Although Fiber Tech Services, LLC offers the best carpet cleaning in Rock Hill, SC, nothing stops you from doing some first aid before you call in the experts. Here are some tips to keep carpets and rugs clean.
Don't Rub In Stains
The secret here is to blot the stain instead or rubbing it in which can spread the stain to the surrounding carpet fibers. Using a clean cloth and cleaning solution, dab the stain so the cloth soaks it up. Blot starting from outside the stain moving inward.
Use Club Soda
Club soda can be used to clean wine and beer stains if used properly. Put some soda on a clean cloth and dab the area. If the stain remains, mix one part water with one part vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray on the stained area then leave the solution for 15 minutes. Use a clean sponge to soak the stain and the solution. You may need to repeat the process a few times for the best results.
Use Shaving Cream
Shaving cream is a very effective stain remover and its application goes beyond carpets. Put on shaving cream on the stained area and leave it for 30 minutes. Blot the cream away using a dry, clean white cloth. Use the water-vinegar solution to finish the process.
Use Ice to Remove Gum
Someone has unintentionally stepped on a gum and carried it over to your carpet. Don't panic. Get some ice cubes from the freezer and freeze the gum. Gum becomes hard under cold temperatures. You may need to hold the ice cube on the gum for 30 seconds. When the gum is frozen, lift it up using the edge of a spoon and cut the fibers as close to the gum as possible.
Clean Grease with Detergent
That grease-cutting power of dishwashing liquids also works on grease on your carpet. Mix a couple of drops with a cup of water and put the solution in a spray bottle. Spray on the stain and blot it up. Repeat if necessary.
Use a Flat Iron to Clean Wax
Wax drippings from candles quickly dry and can get embedded on your carpet. You need to[heat it up again before removing. Use a white cloth to cover the wax then use a flat iron to ward up the area. You can then scrape the wax off using a butter knife.
Hydrogen Peroxide for Blood Stains
A few drops of blood from a paper cut wound can easily ruin your carpet since it can be hard to remove. First, mix mild detergent with water and apply on the stained area to loosen up the dried blood. Scrape as much blood as possible from the carpet fibers then pour in hydrogen peroxide to finish the job.
