Carpet cleaning is one of the most tedious household tasks, but certain cleaning products with the proper use of cleaning supplies can make the chore bearable, even light work.
Your carpet bears the brunt of dirt and grime and yes, constant force and delayed stain removal lead to permanent damage. Such condition calls for an earlier replacement that can disrupt your monthly budget.
The trick to stain removal is to immediately start the cleanup.
Carpet stains come from various sources- accidental spills of food and beverage, muddy shoes of playing children, drool of your beloved pet, the list goes on. You might think that carpet rehabilitation will cost you money, it might even make you consider replacing your carpet altogether but certain cleaning products work magic in carpet mishaps.
Mild detergents, the detergent you use for your laundry, work wonders with food and beverage related discolorations with the use of household cleaning supplies such as damp rags and clean sponges.
Vinegar, a vital cooking ingredient, is also a powerful cleaning and deodorizing home remedy that removes acid stains caused by alcoholic beverages such as beer and coffee, blood, catsup, and chocolates. Be reminded though that a generous portion need to be applied in order for it to be effective.
Cleaning equipment such as a vacuum will help make sure that your carpet is in good condition.
After using the cleaning products, gentle vacuuming seals the deal. It is also important that your capet is not only clean, it should also smell fresh. Sodden footwear cause unwanted odour- and like stains, the key to odour removal is acting on it immediately for a good chance of elimination of the smell. A teaspoon of baking soda mixed with cinnamon will give your carpet a sweet scent. Dried herbs such as thyme, tarragon, and basil will provide an earthy and soothing odor. Mix your choice of scent, sprinkle in the carpet, let it sit for several minutes, and vacuum gently but thoroughly. Keep in mind though that the scent is an icing on the cake, the carpet, should first and foremost be clean and fresh before being fragrant.
Keep in mind that prevention is always better than cure- and yes, this does not only apply to living things.
