If you have carpet in your house, it’s a given that there’s eventually going to be a spill. When this finally happens, you need to be prepared for the cleanup.
Here are a few tips for carpet cleaning in South Lake Tahoe, CA that come directly from professional carpet cleaners:
- Never rub the stains! This only causes them to get deeper into the fibers of the carpet. Instead, blot them lightly with paper towels, sponges or cloths.
- Certain common household items can indeed be used as cleaners if done properly. For example, club soda or vinegar can be used on certain types of stains. Vinegar should be mixed equally with water and then sprayed on to the carpet before being dabbed.
- Grease is best cleaned with a couple drops of dishwasher detergents. It easily goes through the grease in carpets just as it does on the dishes in your sink.
- Pet accidents can be a little more difficult to clean up. You can purchase pet-specific carpet cleaners, which come with their own instructions. In these cases, it might be necessary to scrub the carpet.
