Cleaning carpet will be done quickly and without a hassle, if you use the service of northern beaches carpet cleaning. But you could try to clean it on your own by using the right type of cleaning product. Here’s how to clean the carpet using powder, whether it’s carpet cleaning powder or baking soda powder. Sprinkle generously on the carpet. Leave it on for 30 minutes — or overnight for better results — to give the powder enough time to work on softening the stain and absorbing bad odors. Vacuum the powder using a vacuum cleaner.
There are many brands of carpet shampoo on the market, so make sure you follow the directions for use on the packaging. In most cases, the shampoo will need to be dissolved in water, so make the solution according to the instructions on the label. Use enough shampoo solution to cover the areas you want to clean. Don’t make the rug too wet, as this will be ineffective and will make the drying process longer. Soaking the carpet is also not the correct way to wash the carpet. Especially for stubborn stains, scrub with a hard-bristled brush such as clothes washing brush. Let the carpet dry. Vacuum the shampoo residue when it dries.
For stains that have just stuck to the surface, clean them as quickly as possible before they are completely dry and soak into the carpet material. Remember, don’t be tempted to scrub the stain so it doesn’t spread or soak into the carpet. Just pat it. Although you can get rid of the stain using detergent, you can also try the practical tips below, depending on the type of stain. For sticky stains such as gum, use an ice cube to make the stain harden before removing it. For smelly stains, make a mixture of vinegar and warm water and then apply it to the stain with a cloth. For matters of stains, the sooner they are handled the better – salt can be used to remove new stains.
