Carpet Cleaning at Home

 Buy the necessary ingredients required for making cleaning agents and start your carpet cleaning at home. Use the following carpet cleaning hacks and get rid of dirty carpets.

Remove Dirt First

First, remove all the dirt from the carpet while doing the carpet cleaning at home. For this, vacuum it with the help of a vacuum cleaner from any carpet cleaning company that meets your budget requirements. If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, use a broom and a dustpan to sweep the dust out of the carpet.

Blot Instead of Rubbing

When you see a spill or a stain on a carpet, the first remedy that will come to your mind is to remove it by rubbing. You will start rubbing it with a piece of cloth until it is completely removed. Do you think rubbing will remove the stain? No. Rubbing will lead the stain to go deep down into the carpet. 

Rubbing can cause permanent damage to the carpet as well as it will destroy the carpet fibers. Instead of rubbing, blot the stained area with a cloth or a paper towel. Make sure that the cloth you choose to use is itself free of any stain. In this way, the stain will be absorbed in the cloth and will be removed from the carpet.

Baking Soda and White Vinegar

When you have a small stain such that the overall cleaning of the carpet is not required, baking soda and white vinegar are suitable to be used in this situation. A combination of these two products is very effective against stubborn stains. White vinegar causes the stain to be thoroughly soaked with water and also softens it. Baking soda helps to get rid of any unpleasant smell due to the stain. 

Take equal parts of baking soda and white vinegar. Mix the two ingredients and pour them onto the stain. Their solution produces bubbles of carbonic acid which removes the stain completely.
