Carpet stains can be cleaned
Hand cleaning is the best option for small stains. Attachments are available with many carpet cleaners. It is easier to remove stains if you can catch them immediately. It becomes much more difficult to remove the stain once it has set.
Blot the stain immediately, even if it’s still wet. This will remove most of the moisture. Do not overblot, as it could cause pile damage and crush. You can also use one of many household products such as vinegar, baking soda or commercial carpet cleaners if blotting is insufficient. Apply a small amount of the solution to the stain, and then blot it immediately.
This method is best if the stain has not dried. If the stain is not fresh, you might want to mix one part white vinegar with one part water. Leave the area to soak for about 10 minutes. Use a sponge to scrub the area. Rinse it off with warm water. Allow the area to dry completely.
You may need to hire a carpet cleaner that is suited for your carpet type and stain type if your stains resist your cleaning methods.
It is not easy to remove wax from carpets. Allow the wax to cool down and set before you begin. Use a sharp knife to remove as much wax as possible. Place the wax residue in a brown bag or paper towel, and iron gently on a warm setting. The wax will stick instead to the towel or bag.
Preventative care is a great way to keep your carpets clean and free from damage. It is easier to clean carpets in good condition.
Vacuuming is the most important and essential step. Vacuuming does not remove dirt below the surface, so it should only be done once per week. This will prevent dirt and dust from getting into the fibers. High-traffic areas should be cleaned on a daily basis.
