If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about carpet cleaning until there’s a big, unsightly stain read more. And even then, you may not know what to do about it. Here are some tips on how to clean carpets, courtesy of the professionals at carpet cleaning mosman:
1. Pre-treat stains immediately
Try to spot clean as soon as possible after a stain occurs. This will reduce the amount of dirt and grime that is allowed to set in, making it easier to get rid of the stain. If a liquid or food spill occurs dry, blot it up as much as possible with a clean cloth before treating the carpet.
2. Use the right stain removal agents
For dry stains, use a powdered carpet cleaner or baking soda to clean the surface or a wet vacuum to remove loose dirt, before you apply a liquid carpet cleaner. For liquids, always check if the stain is water soluble. If so, immediately pour small amounts of cold water onto the stain, while blotting it with a clean cloth. Then rinse with a wet-dry vacuum or wipe it dry with a towel.
3. Make sure you’re applying the right amount of cleaning solution to the affected area
Make sure there is enough cleaning solution to wet the area. If there isn’t enough, you won’t be able to thoroughly scrub the carpet fibers, which will prevent the stain from coming out completely. Don’t use too much cleaning solution either.
4. Allow the cleaning solution to work
Allow the cleaning solution to work for at least two to three minutes before wiping it up. The longer you wait, the more effectively the carpet will be cleaned, and nearly any stain can be removed if it’s allowed to sit long enough.
