Stains on your carpet can be an absolute disaster…we know!
But the mess that they cause isn’t always the worst of it. Sometimes, it’s the process that follows — or should we say, your cleaning method.
A dirty spot on your carpet can be temporary if remedied the right way.
Here are a few methods to ensure you avoid any and all hiccups while cleaning your carpet.
Leave The Bleach Alone!
While it may seem like a strong cleaner, bleach can cause irreversible damage to your carpet, and leave entire areas of it discolored forever.
When cleaning your carpet, think of it as clothing– if you wouldn’t clean your clothes with it, don’t clean your carpet with it.
Assess The Stain Immediately
Depending on the type of stain, it is critical to understand the type of cleaning method you’ll need to move forward with. Did you spill your favorite cocktail? There are specific methods to cleaning that prove much more effective than the ones for a blood stain.
Blot, Don’t Rub!
Paper towels, napkins, and towels are great options for spills and stains. Scrubbing will only spread the stain and force it into areas that may not be reachable.
If The Stain Is Dry, Vacuum First!
Chances are, your vacuum has the reach and cleaning capabilities far superior than using a bit of elbow grease. Applying this type of suction from different angles gives you the possibility of cleaning the stain without having to get on your hands and knees.
