There are some spills and messes that require deeper cleaning though most people stay on top of carpet cleaning by vacuuming regularly. More extensive staining and leading to other problems, including mold and mildew development and the production of strong carpet odor are caused when liquids seep into a carpet, and they reach the carpet underlay. In order to keep your carpet in the best condition possible, it is important to know more about cleaning carpet underlay and we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to share tips.
Steps to Clean Carpet Underlay
It is worth it to take the time for this project as cleaning your carpet underlay can make a big difference in the way your carpet looks, how long it lasts and how it smells. You may be unsure of where to start in the event you have never cleaned your carpet padding before. Fortunately, there are a few straightforward steps to follow when cleaning your carpet underlay below.
1) Removing the Carpet. Removing the carpet itself is the first step in cleaning your carpet padding. The only way to access the underlay and make it possible to achieve a deep clean is done by pulling the carpet back. Carpet Care 2000 will take the time to clean it thoroughly so the underlay doesn’t get dirty when the carpet is put back down again before removing the carpet.
2) Underlay Vacuuming. To remove debris and dirt, next the underlay is vacuumed thoroughly. If this step is skipped, you can be left with a muddy mess while you are trying to wash the padding. It is worth it to take the time to vacuum it completely.
3) Underlay Spot Cleaning. When cleaning, it is usually not necessary to apply a cleaning solution to the entire underlay. Using a bucket filled with a bleach solution and a rag, it can be spot cleaned instead. The bleach can be applied with the rag to clean the padding and remove unpleasant smells after stains or odors are identified.
4) Ensure the Underlay is Fully Dry. Allowing enough time for it to dry completely is one of the most important parts of cleaning carpet padding. A damp environment can be created under the carpet that promotes the development of mold and mildew if you cover up the underlay too quickly after cleaning. It is a great idea to let it dry overnight and set up fans and dehumidifiers if you have any to maximize the drying process.
