There are a few carpet cleaning tips and techniques that you can use if you want to keep your rugs looking nice, clean and new. Stain cleaners and odor eliminators are often used and can be highly effective but if not used properly, it can cause more harm than good for your carpet.
In order to prolong the life and beauty of your rugs and carpet it is advisable to vacuum them meticulously and regularly (at least once if not more each week). You need to slowly pass a high-powered vacuum cleaner over your carpets for it to be properly cleaned. Passing too quickly can result in your carpets not actually being cleaned.To clean the carpet more effectively, you should divide your carpet into quarters and clean one section at a time. You must pass over each section of floor at least once in two directions. Through this, you will be able to remove all the dirt which if left might damage the fibers of your carpet.
Soap based cleaners and too much water when used in removing stains can in fact create new stains instead of removing the existing ones. Sadly, some of these cleaners will stay even after drying which can damage the floor even further.
Additionally, you can drive the dirt on your carpet deeper through saturating it instead of removing it all together. Although the stains seem to be gone, it is in fact beneath the surface of the carpet waiting to wick back up.
To remove as much excess liquid from your carpet, you must right away blot liquid spills with a towel. If this is not done immediately, the spills can become soaked into the bottom of your carpeting.
It is necessary that you blot the stains on your carpet instead of rubbing them. Rubbing the carpet may actually drive the stains deeper into the carpet rather than lifting them from it. You should be sure about the towel that you are using; it should be clean so that you can avoid the risk of adding more stains to your carpeting.
