Carpet is a luxury that most homes enjoy and provides a relaxing and welcoming environment. Carpet comes in many different colors, textures and lengths; giving home owners exactly what they desire in flooring. Carpet is soft on the feet and creates another place to fall asleep on the living room floor. It also provides an excellent area for younger family members to crawl around and play on. When carpet is vacuumed regularly and cared for properly, it can have a long life. However, there are some instances that carpet requires a little more than just a vacuum job or a wet towel.
Carpet Spills and Stains
Carpet spills can be frustrating and always seem to happen at a very inconvenient time when you cannot give the spill the proper attention and treatment that it deserves. Wine spills, food spills, pet accidents and mud from shoes being ground into your carpet create stains that may seem almost impossible to get out. Although carpet provides the most comfortable environment than all other flooring, it also requires the most maintenance to keep it looking new and clean. Carpet that is not properly cared for and left untreated after a spill, will make your home look unclean and leave unsightly stains all over your floor.
Spot and Stain Treatment
If your carpet experiences a spill from a dark wine or dark fruit juice it is important to first blot the area with a dry towel. Never rub the stain, as this can make the spill sink even deeper into your carpet. Some home owners have found success in using white vinegar mixed with a generic dish soap. Spraying this mix on the area that is stained and waiting five to ten minutes for the solution to sink into your carpet will produce the best results. Blot the area with a clean, dry towel until the stain is removed.
Pet Stain and Odor Removal
Many pet owners get frustrated with the constant clean up required after their pet has an accident on the carpet. The terrible thing about a pet accident on your carpet is not only the stain it can leave, but also the smell. If not quickly attended to, a pet accident will soak into your carpet’s padding, which will allow a horrendous odor to be present in your carpet. The only way to completely remove the odor is to replace your carpets padding. This can be avoided by quickly cleaning up the accident right after it occurs.
