What you should have known about carpet cleaning

Carpets can either make or break a home’s interior. You can make it last longer by cleaning it well, more help?

The process of carpet cleaning is more difficult than you think. It’s no longer possible to simply hover over the surface and say “done”. It is now necessary to take into consideration stains as well as other means of maintenance, making the whole process a little more complicated. There are several tips you can use to make the process easier.

You can treat stains by using spot treatment. A pet accident, red wine spill, food splatters, etc. Many stains are possible. The stains should be treated immediately. Shaving cream is a good alternative if there’s nothing better. You can apply a tiny amount to the stain, and then leave it for about 15 minutes. Then, gently scrub and wipe the affected area. Vinegar and baking soda is another solution. You can use these two ingredients because they are common in most homes.

Steam cleaning also plays a role. Dust and other debris will end up inside the carpet fibers even when you use the vacuum on a daily basis. The best way to deal with this is by steam cleaning the carpet. Steam cleaning carpets is performed by specialised machines which inject water with cleaning solutions into the carpet. Renting such a machine is possible, as well as using professional carpet cleaning companies that use this method. The carpet will be cleaned, but the home environment is also refreshed.

You can use the vacuum cleaner’s attachments. With the crevice cleaner attachment, you can use your vacuum to clean dust and improve its utility. It is ideal for those corners that are hard to reach and you can use it also to clean the interior of your vehicle.

Use baking soda and 10 drops of essential oil to combat unpleasant odors. Baking soda mixed with 10 drops your favorite essential oil will work. Sprinkle it on the carpet for 30 minutes. After vacuuming, the aroma of the essential oils will be all over the carpet.

Area rugs, and especially doormats can help reduce dust and debris from landing on carpets. This will also help to prolong the life expectancy of your carpet.

These tips will help you take better care your carpet. You will certainly keep your carpet in decent shape for many years to come.
