How to Remove Winter Salt Stains From Carpet

carpet cleaning Brisbane | | carpet cleaning Nundah
Cold. Snow. Sleet. Slush. Winter is bad enough when it is outdoors. You donít want to see signs of winter indoors either. OK. Maybe a nice fire in the fireplace is an exception, but specifically, you donít want to see messes and stains associated with winter in your home.
One mess that can occur during winter is a carpet stain caused from salt residue from ice melt. Salt residue stains stand out due to their almost bleach white appearance and can significantly damage carpet fibers.
In order to prevent or remove salt residue stains from ice melt, you will want to follow these tips from Oracle Carpet Cleaning Blog:
There are two ideal ways to prevent salt stains from appearing in your home during winter. One way is to start a rule in your home where your family and your guests are not allowed to wear shoes in the house. Simply set up an area near the front door of your home to keep shoes when people arenít wearing them. If youíre a prepared host, you can offer guests slippers for their feet when they come over to visit.
Another prevention method is placing welcome and doormats outside and inside your home around your front and back doors. Doormats prevent up to 60% of outdoor contaminants from entering a home and can be used for family and guests to scrape the slush, mud and salt residue from the bottoms of their boots or shoes.
General cleaning and maintenance also helps prevent salt stains and winter messes in your home. If you have a wet/dry vacuum you can use that over your doormats or carpeted entryways to try to soak up all of the slush or snow where some salt might remain. Depending on how bad the weather is, you might want to use the wet/dry vacuum multiple times in a day.
Once the mats or carpet are completely dry, use a traditional vacuum to pull up any dry salt residue left behind. The best vacuuming method is to use a back-and-forth diagonal pattern over the carpet fiber.
If you see crusted salt embedded in the mats or the carpet you can use a dry brush to dry to loosen the salt. Once the salt is loosened, run the vacuum cleaner over the mat again and you should have the results you want.
If you arenít able to remove the salt stain you will want to call a professional carpet cleaner in Brisbane. Carpet cleaners are often equipped with specific solutions and methods designed for salt stains and similar winter stains found in homes.
