All carpets need a little care and attention every now and then, whether you have coffee stains on a dull-colored carpet, crayon marks from a cheeky toddler, or simply a buildup of dirt and dust. Given below are some simple steps to remove lingering smells and stubborn stains from the carpet.
To start, thoroughly vacuum the carpet to get rid of any excess dirt or debris. Doing this at least twice a week would make it easier to clean the carpet in the weekends.
A great way to clean the carpets would be with powder. It can be either baking soda or powdered carpet cleaner. Sprinkle some on the carpet and leave it there for around 30 minutes. It would be good if you can leave it overnight because it would soften the stains, consume the odors, and give the powder time to work. Afterwards, vacuum up the powder.
There many brands of carpet shampoo available in the market, so be sure to read the instructions carefully before using them. In many cases, you would have to mix the solution in water. Be sure to do that as directed on the packaging. Use a hard-bristled brush scrub on the stubborn areas and leave the carpet to dry. Vacuum later, if necessary.
Mix a quarter cup of ammonia with a cup of warm water, and pour the mix into a spray bottle. Blot the stained areas by spraying the carpet with the solution. Repeat as many times as necessary, and then wipe with a clean cotton cloth.
The detergent with which we clean the dishes can also help in cleaning the carpet. Mix the detergent the same way you did with ammonia and spray onto the carpet to blot the stain. Wipe it clean after 15 minutes.
