Dirt in a carpet can sometimes be hard to remove, especially if it has been grounded in. While calling Orkopina cleaning services would be the most convenient option for removal, some homeowners prefer to try a hand first before getting professional assistance.
DIY carpet cleaning
First, start by vacuuming the carpet to remove loose particles.
Get a professional cleaning solution or mix up your own with ¼-teaspoon dishwashing liquid for each cup of water. Test this solution on a hidden area of the carpet and make sure this does not remove the color.
Apply a small amount of cleaner on a clean white cloth, and work this into the carpet, inward from the edges. That will keep the stain from spreading. Leave the solution on the carpet for some time and then blot it off with a dry white cloth. Repeat this process for as long as it takes the stain to completely transfer to the cloth. This might take many tires, but remember that you chose this option over calling Orkopina cleaning services.
The stained area needs to be the rinsed in lukewarm water, using a dry cloth. Afterward, use more such pieces of cloth on the area, and weigh them down with a heavy object, so the remaining moisture gets pulled from the carpet. Leave it this way overnight for best results.
Get the towel and heavy objects out, and then vacuum the area once more to get any dried solution out of the fibers. If there were any left, it would attract dirt and leave you with a new stain to clean up.
Try using an extractor if there is a large area of ground in dirt. This is called steam cleaning and helps loosen up the dirt particles from carpet fibers. There are extractors, which inject a cleaning solution into the fibers and then pull it out right away for additional cleaning power. If you have one of these and the time to use it, you just might end up doing as good a job as a crew of Orkopina cleaning professionals.
It is up to you whether to call Orkopina professionals to help with your carpet cleaning, but this option leaves you free to manage other matters while professionals look into the stain removal.
