If you have carpets in your home you are sure to spend time cleaning, vacuuming and removing stains on a regular basis. One of the problems with carpet is it is a fabric product that is made up of fibers. These fibers are able to not only soak up any physical drops, splashes and spills but also seems to collect the smells too. You may think that if you do not have a pet walking around your home you don’t have an odor issue. But you can have odors from food, shoes, feet, pets, spills and much more. The fibers that make up the carpet or rug have been known to soak up smells and even after the initial spill is cleaned. The smell can linger for a long time. This can lead to the entire room having that same odor throughout the house or room. The very best way to treat odors that are settling in the carpets or rugs is to have them cleaned on a regular basis by a professional carpet cleaning company such as Carpet Care 2000.
Carpet Care 2000 has the best way to deodorize your carpets in between your professional carpet cleanings.
Start with spill and stain removal: Take time to go over the carpet and see what stains and spills there are and take care of them. You can clean them with a carpet cleaner that you have already spot checked somewhere in your home. This will help to remove any of the spills that may be causing the actual odor you are worried about.
Vacuum the entire area: This is another step that is necessary to removing smells and odors on your carpets and rugs. It is best to start with an area that has all the dust and dirt removed the best you can. Use the vacuum to run through the area and also use the attachment tool to remove any debris that is left around the edge of the carpeted area as well.
Use Baking Soda To Remove Odors: This is the step that will actually take the odor and help to eliminate it. Take some baking soda which you can mix with some borax and a drip or two of essential oils to add a level of smell that you choose. You want to use the mixture to sprinkle over the carpeted area and allow it to sit for a few minutes. After it has had time to si,t use the vacuum to remove the powder from the carpet fibers.
