Therefore, you need to pay attention to different aspects such as material, fiber, and other elements. Here, we will discuss a few secrets that have come from the professionals in cleaning industry.
Never rub stains
Whenever there is a spill on a carpet, what most of the people do is that they put a cloth on it and start rubbing the stain. Ultimately, it reaches deep inside the fibers and damage your carpet. However, if you are absorbing the liquid, instead of rubbing it into the carpet, you will be able to do better. Whenever you have a spill, dab it with cleaning solution and a clean cloth. If possible, use a paper towel or sponge to your assistance.
Using club soda for beer and wine
If there are beer and wine stains on your carpet, which are visible on most of the rugs that you see in various houses, you can clean them effectively with the help of club soda. However, you need to know how this remedy works. Start by blotting the area with the help of soda. Don’t put the soda directly on the blot. Instead, use a cloth and put some of the club soda on the cloth before you pat the stain dry.
There are instances when this solution may not work appropriately. So, you can use white vinegar with water, in equal proportions, and put it in a spray bottle. Gently spray the mixture on the affected area and let it settle for at least 10 to 15 minutes before using a clean sponge to remove the stain.
The gum problem
If you have a gum stuck in your carpet, it looks ugly and at the same time it is very hard for you to clean. The secret to removing gum from your rugs is freezing. Use ice cubes and put it on gum to freeze it. Let the cubes sit on the gum for about 30 seconds, or enough to freeze it thoroughly. Once you are done with freezing, lift up the gum with the help of a spoon. Then, cut the strands underneath the glob, as close to the gum as possible. You certainly end up cutting a few strands from a part of your carpet but if you freeze and lift the gum appropriately the spot won’t be noticeable.
