Cleaning your carpet might not be your favourite among all the house chores and that’s understandable. In fact, most often than not it is one of the tedious tasks at home that we are trying to avoid as much as possible. That is why we often choose the type of carpet that can camouflage dirt as much as possible. Besides, it is really one of the reasons why we install carpet, to hide dirt from our sight.
But here we share with you simple tips that you can do to clean your carpet like a pro even though you don’t really feel like doing it.
Tip #1 Inspect the carpet and identify the issues you need to resolve
Before you try to remove any dirt or stain from your carpet you need to know first what type of stains you need to deal. That is to make sure that you won’t add any more damage to your stained carpet.
Tip #2 Remove hairs from your carpet
You might think that vacuum can deal with hairs but unfortunately, it is not 100% satisfactory, so here is a simple hack to deal with those hairs. Get a squeegee! Though squeegee is made to wipe off liquid it is also perfect to remove hairs from the carpet.
Tip #3 Loosen up the stubborn dirt
You might want to jump to the last step and get the carpet cleaning done as soon as possible. But if you want to get a satisfying result, cutting the cleaning process won’t help. And take note of this tip because it can make your cleaning easier later. Get a stiff brush to loosen up the resistant dirt in your carpet.
Tip #4 Let your vacuum working
Since you already remove the hairs and loosen up the stubborn dirt from your carpet it’s time to let your dependable vacuum working. Make sure that you work your way from one side to the other to avoid overlapping and dragging dirt back to the already cleaned area.
Tip #5 Do spot cleaning
If you already identified the stains that you need to deal you should have the right agents to remove them. But just in case you are clueless on what solution you need to use it is better to do some research just make sure that you take in consideration the type of stain and the type of fabric your carpet is made of when you search for the right cleaning agent or stain remover.
Tip #6 Shampoo or Steam Clean and Deodorize your carpet
After the spot cleaning, you can now shampoo or steam clean your carpet. But take note not all carpet can be shampooed and not all vacuum has a steam cleaning ability that is why we had it on the title “like a pro” because these are the process professional carpet cleaners do. But yes, if you are really ready to give it an all-out try then this is a must. But other than shampoo or steam cleaning, deodorizing is also a must. Deodorizing will eradicate the mouldy odour produced by a filthy carpet that’s why it is an important process in deep carpet cleaning. Make sure that you vacuum thoroughly after this process to take away excess water that was absorbed by the carpet.
Tip #7 Keep good ventilation for drying
Open your windows and if you have a ventilation fan it’s time to turn it on. Good air circulation is important to the drying process of the carpet. And avoid stepping on your carpet while it is not yet fully dried to avoid new stains.
