Dirt, which is abrasive and similar to sandpaper is what causes the carpet to “wear”. While regular vacuuming will remove most of the dirt, a deep carpet cleaning is necessary to get rid of all the abrasives that are embedded in the carpet fibers. Carpets trap allergens, dirt and mites that can be harmful to your health and family. Carpet cleaning professionals are essential to maintain the appearance and performance of your carpets. This will prolong the carpet’s life and make your home healthier.

Professional carpet cleaning also offers spot and stain removal. You may not be able to remove the stain completely on your own. However, you can improve it.

These are some tips to help you get started.

To ensure that your carpet is safe from damage, always test any cleaning product on an inconspicuous area of the carpet.

Store-bought “spotters” should be used sparingly. They will leave residue, make the area resoil faster, and make it more difficult to clean up professionally.

Spills and other spots should be cleaned up as soon as possible.

Blot liquids quickly and gently rub the area with a white towel or paper towel.

Do not rub if the spot is still wet. Rubbing can damage the fibers and “lock” the stain in place.

Warm water is best for stain or spillages. Use a warm, but not hot, cloth or towel to blot the area. Make sure to not flood the area and then blot until the stain and moisture are gone.

Apply a non-flammable dry-cleaning product to the area with a towel.

Next, use an absorbent towel to press any moisture from the carpet.

It is more difficult to get rid of a stain that has been left on for a longer period of time.
