The Ultimate Guide To Rug & Carpet Care
Vacuum cleaners aren’t always foolproof. There will be moments when they’ll not be able to eliminate dirt from the rugs & carpets properly, which is why it’s much better to avoid a dirty rug or carpet in the first place. You can do this by applying the ‘no-shoe’ rule or placing doormats at every entrance of your home so that the amount of incoming dirt & dust could be lessened.
However, if your rug or carpet is dirty beyond the usual home vacuuming & cleaning, it’s a much better idea to simply hand over the same to a professional area rug carpet cleaning service, so that they can perform the ideal cleaning service.
On the other hand, if you need some quick tips & tricks on how you can quickly remove a stain, then the following are some of the most popular spot-cleaning suggestions:
This is a simple process that involves covering up the stained spot with a paper or clean towel, for a limited time, till the towel absorbs the stain. Proceed to repeat this procedure till the entire stain has been properly absorbed.
- Spot Cleaning Solution
In this process, you have to mix some water along with some mild (hand-friendly) dishwashing soap, and then use the same as a blotting solution. The amount of soap that should be utilized will be very little (less than a quarter of a teaspoon).
Use a clean towel and then dip the towel into the cleaning solution. Let the towel absorb some amount of the solution and then press the wet towel onto the stained spot.
In this procedure, you have to mist the stained area with water (using a water sprayer) and then blot the same with a dry, clean towel. Continue performing the steps till the stain is eventually dissolved. Remember to not rub the stained part on the carpet/rug.
Ideal Cleaning Procedures For Different Carpet/Rug Materials
- Wool, Synthetic & Plant-Based Carpets/Rugs
For regular cleaning procedures, it’s essential to vacuum the carpet or rug with a vacuum floor tool rather than a vacuum rotating brush. For any liquid spills, simply blot the same. However, for deep cleaning, it’s suggested to send the same to a professional cleaner.
- Additional Stain Removal Techniques
- For removing blood, soda, berries, chocolate, and coffee stains from your carpets or rugs, use hydrogen peroxide.
- For removing mud stains, let the stain dry and then proceed to manually break the same into small pieces and vacuum the residue.
- For removing cat pee or beer stains, use white vinegar.
- For removing watercolor, alcoholic, ketchup and soy sauce stains, use ammonia (not on wool carpets/rugs).
