How To Remove Spots on Your Carpet

We are always interacting and having fun in our homes and it’s not unusual for someone to spill their coffee or even wine on your carpet. Most homeowners never realize how best to remove carpet spots and stains from their carpet. They assume everything is fine only to end up with an unpleasant carpeting which spoils the look of the entire living room. The following tips should help you conquer even the worst spots on your carpet.

Act fast

Whether you have a synthetic or a woolen carpet, it’s important that you act promptly and immediately to any spills to prevent your carpet fibers from getting stained. When dealing with hot liquids, you must act fast, otherwise it might be almost impossible to remove the stains if they cool and dry.

Your first step should, therefore, be to remove or rather blot as much of the spill as possible using white paper tissues or towels. If you’re dealing with solids, consider using a spoon or a blunt knife. To prevent the liquid from spreading to other areas of the carpet, work from the outside edge of the affected area heading towards the central area. Don’t make a mistake of rubbing since you may cause damage to the carpet fibers.

Treat the Spot or Stain

Once you’re done removing as much solid or liquid as possible and the area looks dry, apply a certified carpet cleaning product on the stained area. Consider pre-testing whatever cleaning product you want to use on a small inconspicuous carpet area to make sure it doesn’t cause any damage to your carpet. Now that you’re sure the product cannot damage your carpet, follow the directions and guidelines given carefully.

Use a white piece of towel to apply the carpet cleaning product on the spotted area and work in gently, from the outside edge to the center.

Blot the Spot or Stain away

Using the clean piece of towel, blot from the outside to the central area of the affected part. Be careful not to rub or scrub the area. Repeat the process until when the spot is gone. You can now remove any remaining spots or stains by blotting the carpet area with clean water. A good way allowing the area to dry would be placing a layer of white towels over the affected carpet area and then adding a flat weight until the area dries. Don’t allow anyone to walk over your carpet before the area is dry.

Well, if the spots on your carpet don’t seem to respond adequately to the treatment, maybe it’s time you called a professional Carpet Cleaning Ipswich service which you can find at
