When it comes to carpets, it is only a matter of time! Wether its residue buildup over the years, a sudden spill or accidents from your pets, the day will come when professional carpet cleaning is your only option! However... If you are not ready to take the dive to have your carpets cleaned by professionals using commercial grade products to get rid of even the worst of stains, here are a few tricks from our professional carpet cleaning services at West Hartford Carpet Cleaners to help you out.
While you may have heard about the effectiveness of using club soda on cloths to remove stains, the process works the same on your carpets and upholstery! While club soda alone might do the trick, try adding some white vinegar to the mix to increase the effectiveness! Apply your solution to the stained area and wait for about 15 minutes. Then blot the area and repeat as necessary until the mess is removed.
IMPORTANT! Blot, Don't Wipe
It may be tempting to simply wipe the area BUT, our pros beg to differ! Make sure to blot the area so that you do not spread the stain further out. After you have repeated this process and the stain is gone, make sure to lay down paper towels with a weight on top to soak up the water and effectively dry the area!
