Cleaning your carpet incorrectly can result in further staining and potential damage depending on the severity of the stain. Using the right equipment and products is essential to making sure that the stain is removed without damaging your carpet. Having a professional come to clean your carpet will ensure that the stain is no longer visible and that your carpet is carefully handled. Here are some tips to clean your carpet effectively.

1. Clean it Right Away

If you drop any food or drink on your carpet, making sure to act fast is the best way to remove as much as you can. If you leave the stain, it will dry and be much harder to remove and may even require professional equipment if you cannot remove it with commercial cleaning products.

2. Using The Right Technique

If you rub a carpet stain, you are really just rubbing it further into your carpet and spreading the food or drink across the fibers. It is recommended that you dab or tap the stain with a cloth so that you are cleaning it while not spreading it around your carpet.

3. Using Products Found At Home

Common household products such as baking soda and vinegar are great for cleaning stains that will not go away. If a stain is still visible after you tried to clean it, using vinegar and baking soda can help reduce the visibility of the stain without spreading it across your carpet.

4. Using Commercial Products

Other than using professional equipment that may be expensive, using commercial products is the best way to remove new and previous carpet stains as they are made exactly for this purpose. However, some carpet cleaners are known to cause more damage depending on the type of carpet that you own. Therefore, it is best to do research about which commercial products will work most effectively for the material you are cleaning.

5. Hiring a Professional

Hiring a professional carpet cleaner that uses the latest carpet cleaning technology is the best way to restore your carpet without having to replace it.
