Do-It-Yourself Spot Cleaning

Children, pets, parties and such can tend to create accidents on your carpets and rugs. It is wise to clean them and remove any spots as quickly as possible to prevent stains. We have found that many people will use products purchased from the store to try and remove these accidents. As cleaning professionals, we do not recommend that approach for the following reasons. Consumers assume that if a little bit of something works well, than a whole lot of it should work even better. This philosophy is bad in the spot cleaning world. The reason is that store bought cleaners will leave a residue. The amount of residue left is based on how much cleaning product was applied to the spot and how good of a job the consumer did trying to remove the cleaner after application. The problem is that the residue left on the carpet will then attract dirt.

Also, some of the store bought cleaning products can utilize harsh products to address spot removal. If these type cleaners do not remove the spot, they tend to make it a permanent stain.

So what do you do? First, removal of the initial insult is top of the list. For liquid spills, use a dry clean white cloth or towel. Put it on the spill and apply pressure. The liquid will migrate from the carpet/rug onto the towel. Keep moving the towel so a dry area is over the spill and keep this up until no more liquid is transferred to the towel. For any solid particles, scrap them off with a spoon or dull object. If a spot is still visible, we recommend starting with clean water. If the water does not work, try either 1 teaspoon of a neutral detergent with ½ pint of lukewarm water (a non-alkaline detergent that does not contain bleach such as used for washing delicate fabrics) or 1/3 cup white vinegar to 2/3 cup of water. Using a spray bottle, sprits the spot with the cleaner but do not over wet the spot. Then blot it up as described above.

  22. Good information here. The tactics you shared for cleaning the carpets are quite effective. I did try it and the stains were gone. But, carpet and rug cleaning on your own is a little hectic. Therefore, I contacted a professional carpet cleaning company to help me clean my carpets, because dust, allergens, mould, etc. was a big trouble too. After checking for carpet cleaning NSW near my area, I got in touch with 2mcarpetcleaning and they first checked the carpets to understand what type of cleaning my carpets need. They told me about the complete process and quoted a nominal price for their carpet cleaning services. After cleaning, I was also given some tips to maintain the carpets well. So, the suggestions you gave do work and one can implement that, but periodically for effective cleaning, contacting a professional carpet cleaning company is definitely useful.
