No matter how much you try to prevent it, carpets are bound to face spills, stains, and accidents.
The good news is, you don’t have to stress when you know the best steps to take. With decades of experience with carpet cleaning in Newhall, our team has seen it all. Let’s take a look at some of our pro tips.
#1 – Gently blot stains—never rub them.
Refrain from vigorously rubbing carpet stains as you treat them. This only works the stain deeper into the carpet fibers and makes it more difficult to remove. Gently blot the area instead.
#2 – Remember the power of club soda on stains.
Mix equal parts club soda and vinegar in a spray bottle to treat stains. Also, take advantage of revolutionary carbonated carpet cleaning from Chem-Dry.
#3 – Try using a lint roller.
Lint rollers can snatch crumbs and hair that vacuum often misses.
#4 – Use hydrogen peroxide on stains.
This is highly effective for tough stains like blood or wine. Apply hydrogen peroxide directly to the stain, then wipe it away when it’s finished foaming and fizzing.
#5 – Remove pet hair with a squeegee.
Sure, squeegees are designed for windows, but they also do wonders for removing pet hair from carpet and upholstery.
#6 – Fluff matted down carpet with vinegar.
Spray a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar on matted carpet spots, then fluff the area using a spoon.
#7 – Use shaving cream to treat carpet stains.
Apply shaving cream directly to the stain, wait 30 minutes, then scoop it away. Rinse the area using water and white vinegar.
#8 – Remove gum with an ice cube.
Place an ice cube over gum, wait for a minute or two, then use scissors or knife to chip away the frozen pieces.
#9 – Remove wax stains with an iron.
This step requires caution. Treat the wax first using 3 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Place a towel over the area, then iron over it on a low setting. The heat should transfer the wax to the towel.
#10 – Cut grease on carpet with dish soap.
Get rid of even the toughest greasy stains using a solution of a few drops of dish soap in warm water. Repeat until the stain is gone.
#11 – Utilize area rugs and runners on high traffic areas.
Protect high traffic areas of your carpet by strategically placing rugs over entryways and spots that get a lot of foot traffic.
#12 – Keep up with annual pet urine odor removal.
Get rid of potent odor crystals and bacteria left behind by pets by scheduling an annual pet urine odor removal treatment with Chem-Dry.
#13 – Have your carpets cleaned on a regular basis.
Be sure to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. Chem-Dry not only removes tough stains, but allergens and bacteria, too. We also help fortify your floors to repel future stains.
