Carpets are quite often the last thing someone thinks about while thinking about home décor. Yet, for better or for worse, they usually do end up making or breaking the look and feel of the house. So it is inevitable that one has to take good care of them. The question that now arises is how? Well luckily for you, we at Carpet Cleaning Melbourne, are experts in carpet cleaning. And today, we are going to let you know the tricks and tips for carpet cleaning.
The tips and tricks for carpet cleaning are:
1. NEVER RUB THE SPILLS
One common misconception that everyone has is that if you rub a stain hard enough, it will disappear. Well, we got some bad news for you. Rubbing causes the spill to spread and permeate into the fibres of the carpet. This usually leads to the premature breakdown of the carpet. So how do you avoid this? Well, it is quite simple. Just blot the spill away. Do keep in mind to blot inward though you don’t want the stains to spread.
2. CARPET LIKES TO SHAVE TOO
No, we don’t mean to say that you should grab a razor and give your carpet a shave. Instead, try using shaving creams on stains. Just like how they get rid of that incorrigible stubble, they also work wonders on persistent stains. They just about clean everything up. And what they can’t, we most definitely can.
3. DISHWASHERS ARE CARPET WASHERS TOO
While shaving creams tend to take care of most of the stains, there are quite a few grease stains that they are seemingly ineffective against. So for them, we have another idea. Step forward dishwasher detergents. Just a drop or two of this magical commodity will go straight through the grease stain and make it all disappear in no time at all.
4. HYDROGEN PEROXIDE FOR THE BLOODY ONES
Bloodstains are the most visible and persistent variety of stains on a carpet. So if you killed someone on your carpet and you are wondering how to get rid of those bloodstains, well don’t worry we got you covered. Scrape off the dried blood with a mixture of water and dishwasher detergent. Then, apply hydrogen peroxide directly to the stain. Then dab it away with a clean cloth and viola. You just got away with murder.
5. DEEP CLEAN OFTEN
Lastly, follow deep carpet cleaning regularly. The above methods are for cosmetic purposes only. But if you want to prolong the life of that rug you like, then we advise you to deep clean the carpet through steam cleaning etc. as often as possible.
