DIY Carpet Cleaning Tips

Carpet being paddled to remove dust

Hosting a party at home would guarantee that your carpet will look like it was attacked by a hurricane the very moment your last guest steps out of your home. Pasta, wine, chicken sauce, desserts and practically everything you served that night would be on your carpet. 

Such cases might need the help of professional carpet cleaning services in Salt Lake City, but for other daily mishaps, these DIY carpet cleaning tricks can help you save the day.

Clean it ASAP

The moment something spills, clean it. The longer you let it stay in your carpet, the harder it would be removed. Never let stains sit around.

Avoid scrubbing

Logically, the more force you apply on the stain, the easier it is to remove. Wrong. Instead of scrubbing it, blot it. Use a cloth and blot the affected area. The goal is to remove moisture from the carpet to prevent stains from setting into the fabric and from destroying the fiber due to too much rubbing.

Shaving cream and dishwashing detergent

Shaving cream can remove most types of stain. Just spray an amount on the affected area, let it stay for 30 minutes and blot it off with a clean cloth. Dishwashing detergent, on the other hand, is perfect for cleaning greasy stains in your carpet. Spray some dishwashing liquid mixed with water and quickly remove the stain.

Regular deep cleaning

Make sure that your carpet is cleaned thoroughly. Regular deep cleaning through steaming is the best way to maintain your carpet’s quality. Professional services can be sought for such jobs.

Keep your carpets clean all the time. Not only does it make your place more beautiful and pleasing, but a clean carpet also means lesser dust accumulation which means lesser allergies. Happy cleaning!
