If you are like most people, you have been putting off large purchases because of the economy. Maybe you need to replace your carpet because it’s old and dirty but you simply don’t have the money to do it. While you are saving your money to replace your old carpet, you should make sure that it is cleaned regularly. Since old carpet can rip or tear easily, you might want to hire carpet cleaners to take care of the tough task.
These carpet cleaners will gently clean your carpet without damaging it because they are fully trained in the proper techniques and they have powerful carpet cleaning equipment on hand to assist them. They will be able to make it look brighter without altering its colour.
If you are doing your own carpet clean, you will need to first remove any excessive food debris. This can be tricky because if the food has been sitting on the carpet for days or even months, you will need to use a warm rag to try to soften the stain. Soak a rag in warm water and apply a mild soap before applying it to the tarnished area.
This should loosen the food debris which will allow you to remove it with relative ease. If this does not work, you may have to use a knife or other sharp utensil to cut through the hardened debris.
Once you have removed all of the difficult food particles and debris from your carpet, you will need to run a vacuum cleaner over the area to pick up the crumbs.
Carpet cleaning involves several steps and you will have to make sure you do all of them when you are maintaining an old carpet. Removing stains is the final step after you have gotten rid of debris.
You have your choice of stain removal sprays on the market but you should do some research to make sure that you don’t choose cleaners that are inappropriate for your old carpet. After all, you don’t want to ruin the fabric, making your attempt to clean even worse a result than keeping the carpet filthy.
If your old carpet has seen some serious neglect to the point that it looks duller than how it was when brand new, then you will certainly need to consider using a cleaning company that supplies experienced carpet cleaners.
