Carpet Cleaning Secrets to Keep Your Home Fresh All Winter
The cold weather can discourage most homeowners to do winter carpet cleaning. With the cold and wind chill, your carpet will probably take forever to dry, right? Experts say, however, that the winter season is actually the best time.
Allergens enter our home during the warmer months through our open windows. When carpets don’t get cleaned, indoor environment becomes unhealthy. Minor stains from our holiday entertaining become more difficult to remove, or can even become permanent. Plus, it’s easier to schedule professional carpet cleaning because of the misconceptions. Spitz Carpet Cleaning shares a few carpet cleaning secrets so you can keep your home fresh all winter.
This can sometime happen no matter how well-trained pets are. Do not use chemicals. Instead, use organic products in spray bottles. Some organic cleaners can be used on other stains such as sauces and coffee.
Professional carpet cleaners say that blotting, not rubbing the stains, is the key. Make sure you dab from outside going inward so that you do not spread the stain. Shaving cream and club soda are some of the most effective weapons in winter carpet cleaning.
If you’ve stepped in a chewed gum on the street and dragged the sticky mess into your precious carpet, do not freak out. Just go get some ice cubes from the fridge and freeze the gum for 30 seconds. Once it becomes solid, you can easily spoon it off your carpet.
Remove wax by heating it up with a white cloth over your iron. Repeat ironing using a paper towel this time. The wax will melt and bind to the paper.
Hydrogen peroxide is the answer to blood stains. Apply it directly on the stain after you have loosened the dried blood with a mild detergent and water solution. Use towels to dry the carpet.
