01 Jan 4 Tips To Keep Your Carpet Clean
Having your carpet professionally cleaned is like getting a new car. It has that new car smell and it’s refreshing. Yet, if you have little ones around, then that new sparkling carpet may not last long. At Smart Choice Cleaning, we understand how hard it is to keep your home clean. Our IICRC-certified technicians utilize our truck-mounted hot water extraction system of steam for all of our carpet cleaning services, treating our clients’ homes in the Northern Virginia area as if it was our own. The following are only a few tips that will help you keep your carpet clean after a professional cleaning.
Blot. Don’t Rub.
After having your carpet professionally cleaned, you want to avoid any spills or accidents. However, spills happen sometimes, especially if you have little ones running around. The worst thing you can do to a stain is rub it further into the carpet. The best solution is to place some cleaning products on a paper towel or cloth and dab.
There are many Do-It-Yourself home solutions out there – and this is one of them. Take some shaving cream, add vinegar and water to it, and then blot it directly on the spot. This will remove just about any spot. While not all DIY solutions are as effective as professional home cleaning, get in touch with our team to see how we can help you.
Because of the cold winter, you may have many candles lying around your home to keep warm. Although candles add atmosphere to your home, getting it out of the carpet could be a hassle, but it’s not impossible. Try placing a thick cloth on the area and then place the iron on top of it. This should heat the wax back up and allow you to pick it up easily. However, we suggest calling a professional before you attempt this method. Also, be sure not to leave the iron for more than 20 seconds or you may damage your carpet.
Soda Is Not Just For Drinking
Along with the other home remedies, club soda is a secret weapon. Add a little vinegar and water, and start blotting inwards from the outside of the stain. It may take a few tries, but this trick tends to work most of the time!
