Being perfect for covering nearly any floor in the home, wool carpet is a great option for the plush texture and luxurious status that many homeowners enjoy. Being extremely durable, it can even last a lifetime as long as it is properly cared for and maintained. High-quality wool carpets are worth the investment. To help you better preserve wool carpeting, we at Carpet Care 2000 have some recommendations.
 

Wet Wool Carpets

Being a natural fiber, wool will not shrink, stretch or become warped when it comes into contact with water. Like all carpeting options, excessive moisture can cause water damage to the carpets, padding, and even subfloor. But you should use water first to treat spills and spots. To prevent any oversaturation, be sure the wool carpets are dried as quickly as possible. Cover the area with a towel and place weight on top of it for period, and if weather permits, open windows and implement any floor and ceiling fans to expedite the process. You can also extract excess moisture, should you have access to extraction equipment such as wet/dry vac. Call a professional immediately if the wool carpets should be victimized by flooding. Foul odors can develop, wool carpets can be discolored, and potential mold growth can occur if the carpets remain wet for too long. Also, never use hot water or you can set the stain into the fibers when treating the carpet stains and spots stick with warm or cold water.
 

Wool Carpet Cleaners

Because not all detergents are the same, wool carpets require specific cleaners when water is not enough. Always check the label to ensure it is safe for wool carpets when buying a carpet cleaner. Designed specifically for wool, be sure to follow manufacturers recommend investing in a cleaner. Because it will disintegrate the fibers, never use any bleach (chlorine) or bleach-based cleaners. Also, laundry detergent is not wool carpet friendly. Without fading the wool’s colors, peroxide can generally take care of stains for tough stains. With minimal dishwashing liquid soap solution for gentle removal, any grease or grime that comes into contact with wool carpets can be removed. Enzyme cleaners are best to remove stains caused by any organic materials. To ensure the wool carpeting is not compromised, always perform a patch test in an inconspicuous area, no matter if you use commercial products or a DIY concoction.
 

Treat Stains & Vacuum High Pile Wool Carpets

Wool carpets should be vacuumed daily or as often as possible. Vacuum before any deep cleaning. Only blot spills immediately with a white cloth. Before the chance to absorb into the fibers and become a stain, remove the spots. Because it contains a natural waxy coating that is designed to repel liquids, wool carpets are less likely they are to result in a stubborn or permanent stain. Even if it is given the opportunity to linger, a stain can still develop, the sooner the spill is treated the better off the carpet.

Deep cleaning wool carpets can be tricky. To ensure they are done correctly, it is in your better interest that your wool carpets are cleaned by a professional 1-2 times a year of more so. Also have a professional take care of the stain as soon as possible if any stubborn stains occur and they are a challenge to get out. Call in the experts of Carpet Care 2000 and let our experienced team of professionals do the rest when your wool carpets are due for their deep clean.

For those who work hard to keep their upholstery clean and free of stains, keep in mind that it is important to clean stains as they occur. It is also important to clean the stains properly or you could be ruining the furniture. Too many times furniture is ruined due to improper stain cleaning. Carpet Care 2000 will share how to properly remove stains from upholstery without damaging or ruining your furniture.
 

Vacuum Fabric Sofa

When taking care of your upholstery it is a good practice to always vacuum the upholstery’s surface once a week. This way if a stain does occur, you will have better success removing the stain. Dirt trapped in the upholstery can cause water or mineral stains to worsen. If you haven’t vacuumed your upholstery lately, make sure to vacuum the stain site before you begin cleaning the stain itself. By vacuuming the site first, you will be able to clean the stains without dirt or other substances causing the stain to multiply. Additionally, vacuum up the stained area first. This helps to remove some of the stain particles away as well.
 

Cleaning Code on Couch

Next, before you begin cleaning the stain, check your upholstery’s cleaning codes. Upholstery is made with a number of different fabric blends. This is why upholstery will have a tag with a cleaning code to let you know how to properly clean the fabric. There are four codes that are used to help provide a cleaning guide:
(W) – Code W stands for water based cleaning, so you should use water based shampoo or foam cleaner. It is safe to use a soft brush or sponge when cleaning W upholstery. However, never over wet W code upholstery as they can develop water ring stains.
(S) – Code S fabric stands for solvent or chem dry cleaning only. It is important to avoid water based cleaner. Only use dry-chem or solvent cleaners when cleaning S fabrics. Avoid using water to rinse or clean the stain.
(W/S) – Code W/S means it is safe to use a solvent or chem-dry cleaners, as well as water based cleaners. However, if you need to soak the fabric, dry the site with a fan.
(X) – Code X means you should not use any type of cleaner and only vacuum or lightly brush the surface.

Red Dye Stains Carpets

The longer the red dye soaks into the carpet, the harder it will be to remove the stain. When any stain occurs on your carpet, your very first step is to grab a dry white cloth and press gently down on the spill. You want to have the cloth absorb the stain versus the carpet. For those with a wet /dry shop vac, you can also use this vacuum to suck out the spill which can be more effective than a cloth. However, use what you can on hand and as quickly as possible.
 

Remove Red Stains Out of Carpet

Once most of the moisture has been removed out of the carpet, you will need to clean the remainder of the stain. To remove the red stain you will want to mix 2 cups of plain warm water with ¼ teaspoon of liquid dish soap. You can also mix 2 cups of warm water with 2 cups of ammonia, both are effective. Next you will once again want to use a white cloth and soak it in the cleaning solution. Dampen the stain using a blotting motion. It is important to always use a white cloth when cleaning stains. The cleaning solution can cause dye in cloth to run into the carpet adding to the problem. A white cloth has no dyes to ruin the carpet.

Carpet is one of the most popular flooring types used throughout America. Carpet provides a soft, non-slip surface. Many homeowners work hard to keep their carpets clean. However, even the cleanest carpets are hiding some dirty secrets. It can be surprising to learn what is found in everyday carpets. Carpet Care 2000 will share what is found even in some of the most well-kept carpets and why it is important to have routine professional carpet cleaning.
 

Contaminants in Carpet

Carpets are made of fiber, woven tightly together that is looped into pile that makes up a carpeted flooring. The design of carpet provides a soft surface which helps to reduce noise, make the floor softer, and is better for play and safety. However due to the carpet design, carpets easily absorb a number of different particles and even become a breeding ground for a number of living organisms. Even with weekly vacuuming and basic carpet cleaning, carpet can still be full of particles and organisms. Carpets have been tested in different settings and each reveal different types contaminants such as the following.
 

Ground in Dirt & Soil in Carpet

In an average home in America, carpets have been found to accrue 40 pounds of dirt or dust every year. As dirt and soil is easily brought into the home, carpet quickly accumulates dirt and soil deep in the fibers and down to the carpet’s padding. With weekly vacuuming, you can reduce the amount of dirt and dust that can reduce the amount of dust or soil that remains in the carpet. However, it will not prevent all of the dirt. Over time the dirt will build up and deep cleaning is required.
 

Carpet Often has Human & Pet Dander

Each day both humans and pets will lose strands of hair and dead skin flakes will fall off our bodies. Pets also have more dander than humans and they leave dander throughout the home. As a result, it comes as no surprise that human and pet hair, dander, and dead skin is found inside carpet fiber. Again vacuuming the carpet will help to greatly reduce the amount of hair, dander, and dead skin but will not remove all of it.
 

Carpet Beetles & Pests

When there is dead skin, hair and dander in the carpet, it becomes a breeding ground for dust mites and invites other pests. In carpet, carpet beetles, moths and dust mites are frequently found causing indoor allergies and damage to the carpets. Dust mites are a constant human companion which is impossible to completely remove. However, you can reduce dust mites and pest population in your carpet with routine deep carpet cleaning.
 

Mold, Fungus & Bacteria in Carpet

With spilled drinks, small food particles, along with dead skin and dander, mold, fungi and bacteria will develop. For those who have frequent skin irritations such as athletes foot, it is often because of the bacteria in the carpet. Mold is another harmful contaminant that can cause major health problems. Carpet can easily develop mold, fungi, and bacteria that need to be removed. Professional carpet cleaning use quality carpet cleaning solvents that not only removes stains, but kills mold, fungi, and bacteria as well. By killing bacteria, fungi, and mold in the carpet, your carpet will have less odors and be much healthier as well.

It is not uncommon that bleach or bleach-based products manages to make contact with carpet. Bleach in any form is a detriment to your carpet, no matter if it is a few droplets, or you managed to localize a puddle. Bleach is not like other substances where all you need to do is blot it with a paper towel and treat it with vinegar. Since bleach is a completely different situation, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to take the opportunity to discuss it.
 

Is a Bleach Spill a Spot or Stain?

When it comes to bleach, there are a few things everyone should know. Most call it a “stain” when the bleach mucks the aesthetics of your carpet. They think of something can be worked out of the carpets when most think of a stain, however, the hard truth is that bleach cannot be lifted out of carpets unfortunately. For example, a red wine stain can be treated by sopping excess wine with paper towels, preparing a solution of water, white vinegar and liquid dish soap and efficiently removed with proper blotting techniques. On the other hand, bleach does not coat the carpet fibers like the red wine. Instead, it begins dissolving the color pigmentation of the fibers. How light the carpet’s color will get depends on the potency and how long it lingers, and the composition of your carpets. The affects can range from lighter shades of your current color, to brownish, to orangish, to yellowish, and finally to a whitish color. Bleach stains are more accurately “spots”.
 

How to Remove Bleach Spots

Note: You can reduce the damage it takes by tending it immediately with the steps below in the event bleach make contact with your carpet. When treating bleach spills, avoid the following:
When you blot, do not use colored or printed paper towels, cloths, or towels. Do not create friction by rubbing and scrubbing and using excessive pressure. And don’t use hot water!
1) Blot Bleach Spots: Gently blot the excess moisture from the carpet with light to moderate pressure. The carpet should be only damp, use multiple paper towels to sop up the bleach, if necessary. To help contain the spill, blot the spot on the outer ridges and work your way towards the center.
2) Rinse Bleach Spots: Being extremely careful not to over saturation, sparsely sponge cool water onto the stain. To avoid over saturation if the stain is large and needs multiple applications of water, in between rinsing be sure to use a dry towel to absorb the moisture.
3) Neutralize Bleach Spot: In a squirt bottle, combine 1 cup of cool water and ¼ cup white vinegar. After you moderately spray the solution onto the bleached area, allow the solution to sit for 5-10 minutes.
4) Rinse Carpet Spot: Blot the spot to rinse the out the solution with a damp cloth.
5) Dry Carpet: Use an old towel to absorb as much of the dampness as possible. With a heavy object weigh down a strategically place a dry towel over the top and let it sit overnight. If the spot is thoroughly dried, vacuum the area in the morning. There will still be an unsightly blemish, but hopefully the damage was reduced.

To help optimize the stain removal, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to offer some important don’ts when treating your carpet stains.
 

Do Not Soak Carpet

In the spilled substances that made contact with the carpet, there is usually some moisture content. Leading to an increased over soaking, the liquid cleaning solution frequently requires repetitive steps to remove the stain completely.

Remove excess moisture in between applications with extra towels or paper towels to prevent over wetting the carpet.
 

Avoid Scrubbing / Rubbing Carpet

With the pressure and motion of scrubbing and rubbing techniques, the substance is pushed deeper and wider. When you treat the spots and stains, begin blotting the exterior of the stain and work your way to the center. Ensure to begin the outer rim and going inward to control the stain through blotting.
 

Cleaning Carpets with Hot Water is a Mistake

Water is a primary element in cleaning up spills. It is used in the solution, as well as often to pre-rinse and post-rinse, which the temperature is not necessarily specified. However, it is vital you avoid hot water. Heat can cause the stain to set in. If temperature is not specified, use cool water.
 

Always Rinse & Dry Carpet After Cleaning Stains

After you have lifted the stain, you have a few more steps. Never walk away by this point. Be sure to rinse the residue cleaning solution, otherwise dirt and debris can stick to the area. Once you have used a water-damp cloth to rinse the area, use a cloth or towel to remove excess water. After which leave dry towel that is weighted down overnight. Make sure the area is dry and vacuum.
 

Never Skip Carpet Spot Patch Test

Even if it is a familiar product or remedy, you want to ensure there is no damage to the carpet, so never skip the patch test. The fibers can be compromised, though it is more common to see carpet lightening. Pick an inconspicuous area for a patch test, though it is more common to see the carpet lighten.
 

Never Use Colored or Printed Cloths to Treat Carpet Stains

Using plain white paper towels, cloths, rags, and towels is essential. You can create a stain on top of a stain after using any dyed or printed cleaning aids can be easily transferred to the carpet. Only use plain white cleaning aids to avoid this predicament.

The area rugs in the home, though they have similarities, are different than carpet. To enhance the aesthetic of your interior design, the unique patterns, color, and textures of the area rugs are placed. Area rugs require maintenance and care to make them last. Today, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to discuss the fundamentals of cleaning the area rug and some recommendations to treat spot and stains.
 

Vacuum Area Rugs Often

The dirt and debris wear and breakdown the fibers of the rugs faster than consistent vacuuming, contrary to popular belief. Vacuuming on regular basis can reduce the wear in addition to preserving a clean rug, which extends the lifespan. Before vacuuming shag rug, be sure to turn down the setting and never vacuum any edge fringe.
 

Remove Pet Hair from Area Rugs

Removing pet hair from the area rug is not always effectively done through vacuuming alone. Reducing the volume also helps for a more efficient vacuuming. Using a stiff brush, gently remove pet hair once a week as a more efficient alternative.
 

Rotate Area Rugs

Rotate the area rug to help make sure that the rug wears and fades evenly by distributing the foot traffic and sun exposure instead of keeping the wear from foot traffic concentrated in one area or path. Be sure to do this throughout the year.
 

Shake out Debris on Area Rugs

Take the rugs outside and shake them vigorously once every week or two, or more often if you can spare the time the more the better. You can maximize vacuuming by using a paddle or tennis racket to loosen and remove dirt and particles that wear your rugs out faster as well.
 

Area Rug Deep Cleaning

If there are any special care instructions or warnings be sure to adhere to them as they should be printed on the label of the rug. For example, some area rugs require dry-cleaning solvents only, or exclusive professional cleaning.
 

Machine Washable Area Rugs

In a mesh bag, the small machine-washable rugs can be cleaned on a delicate cycle. Unless otherwise instructed from the label’s instructions, do not use warm water. Also, do not put them in the dryer as they can shrink and set in any tough stains. Make sure the water is cold during the washing cycle and hang them to dry in a well-ventilated area, outside is optimal if weather permits.
 

Area Rug Stain Removal

Never scrub or rub as this only forces the substance in the fibers deeper in the fibers, but gently blot away any moisture first. To treat the residual stains, use your preferred homemade solution or a store-bought stain remover. In a spray bottle, combine 1 teaspoon dish-washing detergent, 4 cups of warm water, and ¼ teaspoon white vinegar to use as a multi-stain remover on your rugs. To ensure it is used safely without compromising the rug or color, be sure to conduct a patch test in a small, inconspicuous area

If you own a pet you are probably all too familiar with the reality of living with pet hair covering most of your belongings. While it can be said that most pets, especially dogs will go through the shedding process a couple of times a year, realistically speaking pets shed constantly. Your cat or dog playing with a tennis ball sized dust bunny may be cause for amusement but the reality is that letting your home fill with pet hair can pose some very serious health risks to susceptible family members including allergies, asthma and other breathing issues. The experts at Carpet Care 2000 recommend the following tips between their professional carpet and upholstery cleaning services to help keep your home fur free.
 

Brush Shedding & Moulting Dog Hair

Begin by pinpointing the source and brush your pet daily to remove lose hair before it has a chance to shed and settle within your home. Stop by your local pet store for recommendations on the type of brush best suited to your individual pet’s needs. For example, some dog breeds have an undercoat which may require a brush designed to penetrate both the topcoat and the inner layer of hair. Add a pair of grooming gloves to your supply to gently remove dog and cat hair. You and your pet will both enjoy the extra bonding time.
 

Clean Pet Bedding Often | Sweep & Mop Floors Daily

Along with daily vacuuming, you will also want to ensure that your pets bedding is washed at least once a week to keep fur from building up. To maximize your dryers efficiency make sure that you clean any lint build up from your dryer vent each time you use it especially after washing pet bedding. Sweep and vacuum your hard floor surfaces daily. Invest in a broom with soft rubber bristles that are specially designed for pet hair pick up. These specialty brooms can also be used on carpets and upholstery to trap pet hair. Tiled floors and linoleum should be mopped daily to help eliminate any potential for excess pet hair build up.
 

Dust Regularly & Use Pet Hair Removal Tools

Depending on the breed and size of your pet, it’s not uncommon to find dog hair on surfaces such as tables, book shelves, counters and other high surfaces. While dusting removes a lot of hair build up wiping down your counters with a damp cloth is the best way to eliminate the excess hair missed during dusting. There are a multitude of expensive gadgets designed to remove pet hair but sometimes the simplest of items found in most homes work the best. Lint brushes and duct tape are two useful items that you will want to keep handy. A simple pair of rubber household gloves can remove hair buildup from soft furnishings in a jiffy. If your dog likes to ride in the car with you, keep these items in the glove compartment to help keep your vehicles interior clean between vacuuming.
