Dealing with Carpet Stains
Accidental spills are one of the worst enemies of carpeted floors. While there are spills that can be dealt with easily, there are spills that call for more careful handling and may lead to long-lasting stains if not sorted out as soon as possible.
What makes matters worse is that there are some carpet-cleaning professionals that are not available to provide Alberta home services 24/7. It’s not guaranteed that you would get the help you need as soon as possible.
In the event of liquid spilling on your carpet, do not panic. Most of the time, panicked people become hasty and immediately goes to grab the brush, apply the toughest cleaning chemical, and try to scrub the stain as scrupulously as they can, in the hopes that the stain would be wiped away. When, as a matter of fact, such actions could just lead to more damages for your carpet.
There are some important factors you should keep in mind if your carpet gets spilled on such as:
The first thing to remember is to blot the area wherein liquid was spilled on. Blot and don’t scrub. It can be frustrating attempting to remove such a stubborn stain, but vigorous scrubbing of your carpet can cause harm to its fibers. You can use a soft absorbent material to dry the wet spot to get the liquid out. It is also wiser to use a white cloth to dry your carpet, or even paper towels to prevent getting any color bleeding stains from colored clothes onto your carpet.
No matter how much a branded cleaning chemical claims that they are the best in removing stains, refrain from using a lot of it when you try to clean the stain. Use a little amount of cleaning agents.
Having your carpet completely dried is just as important as the other factors. Make sure that the area of the spill would be dried by using a hair dryer or an electric fan. If you leave some wet spots on your carpet, molds could be formed.
It’s very important to take action at once when it comes to dealing with spills. Otherwise, if you wait long enough, the spill would set in and can even lead to permanent damage to your carpet.
So, don’t fret if you can’t immediately book carpet cleaners in Alberta for home services. With the right mindset and proper techniques, it is possible to get rid of the stains yourself.
