Removal of stubborn stains from carpets

Carpets always add an extra elegance to your home but if not cleaned well it can be a mess. Cleaning the carpets make your home hygienic and healthy. Carpets may vary according to their size, color, material, shape etc. There are different methods for cleaning different types of carpets say wool, nylon, polyester or cotton. Carpet cleaning is a tedious task for most of the homeowners. Still, we use carpets due to its durability, softness and it is reasonable too. Carpets can have a lot of stains, spills, spots and grits. The chances of pet stains and grime can be more on carpets.
I would like to share some simple tips for carpet cleaning.
1)Nylon: It is the cheapest and common carpet material mainly used for high traffic areas. The simple method for cleaning is blot the stains before it gets settled. Natural methods like detergent and water, white vinegar solution, lemon and soda solution can really help you clean a nylon carpet.
2)Wool: These carpets always gives a polished and shiny look. A mixture of diluted white vinegar, warm water and wool detergent can help you remove the stain. But make sure you scrub gently on the affected area or else it may lose the shiny look.
Also, vacuuming the carpets are one of the best methods to make it stay longer and durable. Getting professional help once in a year is also recommended. I would also like to share a blog on carpet cleaning which mentions some more tips to remove stubborn stains.

Although,you can clean your carpet by yourself but it will take a lot of time and chance of damage. I always suggest, hire professional cleaners as they are experienced for the carpet cleaning services that they deliver. First you should know what types of stains you have? Is it a water-based or oil-based stain? If you get tough stains may require the combined action of baking soda and vinegar. Although, professional carpet cleaning might be expensive but their services can satisfy all your cleaning needs. Whether your cleaning job needs shampooing and freshening; reconditioning and spot cleaning; or odor and stain removing, we have the right equipment, system, and experience for carpet cleaning job.

That's a good and detailed information about carpet cleaning. Carpet stains are really tough to remove as sometimes it even ruins the aesthetics of it.
Another way of removing the stubborn carpet stains is using alcohol and microfiber cloth. I found it in this blog where there is every hack for home cleaning.

Thanks for the share. Cheers!

Expulsion of stubborn stains from the carpet is not a simple errand, but rather there are some strategy which we take after can undoubtedly evacuate this tenacious spot.

1. We have to vacuum our carpet to remove the tiny dust particle before going to clean the stain.

2. For cleaning, steam cleaning is a better option.

3. After cleaning, then we should drying up the carpet and give the final touch up to the carpet.
