When it comes to carpet cleaning, everyone wants to know the secrets. We’ve all heard things about club soda, vinegar, and other “DIY methods” but how well do they really work? Today we’re going to discuss DIY carpet cleaners, stain removers, and tips. Hopefully, next time you have a spill you’ll know exactly what to do!
Removing Carpet Stains
When dealing with soiled carpets, there are a few musts. The first step is always cleaning the stain; you don’t want whatever spilled to begin setting in the carpet. Blot the area instead of rubbing (which can spread the stain). After most of the stain is up you can begin dabbing. Don’t overdo the cleaning product; this increases drying time and can actually attract new stains if you don’t get all the residue cleaned away. If you’d rather use some DIY carpet cleaner, we’ll be discussing various homemade carpet cleaners for all types of stains that you could use! Drying your carpet using a towel or even a blow dryer can help speed up the drying process which can reduce the likelihood of new stains forming over the cleaned area.
DIY Carpet Stain Removers
There are various homemade carpet cleaners mentioned around the internet. Be careful when using certain “DIY cleaners” and make sure that they won’t cause damage to your carpet fibers or the color of your carpet. Sometimes opting for a professional carpet cleaning may be your best bet for hard set-in stains.
When attempting to remove carpet stains and apply DIY carpet cleaners and stain removers, always be aware of your manufacturer’s warranty and what can potentially void it. DIY cleaning will not void your warranty, but damage caused by improper cleaning methods may. If you have a stain that won’t budge, be sure to contact us for a professional carpet cleaning today!
