6 Easiest Carpets To Clean…

professional-carpet-cleaners

In a perfect world, you could buy carpets that are aesthetically pleasing based on the colour and style that reflects your personality, home or office space without giving a second thought about its upkeep. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and hence need to give considerable thought when buying carpets.

Like every other investment in life, carpets also offer the best value for money (if it is of the greatest quality). But to keep it up to spec, professional carpet cleaners are a MUST!

Quick Tips:

  1. Check for the bulked continuous filament (BCF) in carpets as the bulky strands of fibre last longer and do not get fuzzy after minimal usage.
  2. Check for the density of the fibres. The fibres should be dense enough that when you bend it, the backing is not visible. Such high-density carpets are usually “stain-resistant” as it can repel dirt, particles and stains due to the density of the fibres.
  3. Other carpets share the stain-resistance factor when they are treated with special chemicals, that repel stains during the manufacturing process.

The different types of easy-to-maintain carpets available on the market are:

A Guide to Carpet Stain Removal

Our homes act as harbingers of comfort, and we try our best to keep it in optimal condition. But often, our carpets face the brunt of certain uncontrollable actions. Sometimes someone accidently spills over some wine, and at other times kids walk in with muddy shoes. Now, under such circumstances, the carpet is left with a stain and requires immediate cleaning. Even if you try your best to keep your carpet spruced up, something will always spring up on you. Thus, it is important to be adept in the crucial art that is carpet stain removal.

The Two Types of Carpet Staining Are:

Soiling: Soiling happens when a residue of the carpet cleaner, used to remove the stain, is left on the carpet fibres. The residue becomes sticky on not being completely rinsed and blotted, thus attracting dirt and soil.

Wicking: Wicking happens when the substance that was spilled soaks through the carpet into its backing and sometimes even the underpad. In this case, the substance stuck in the backing and/or underpad is reabsorbed by the carpet and makes it way to the carpet fibres. Wicking usually happens when the carpet has not completely been dried out after steam cleaning.

Now that you know what can affect your carpets, how can you prevent it from happening?
Treat spills immediately to prevent it from soaking deep into the carpet, thereby preventing the reappearance of stains. After this, lay down a stack of papers or a clean towel to draw up the left-over moisture in the carpet. Else, you can contact the best Carpet Steam Cleaning team in Perth to remove the stains and clean your carpets professionally. The high-grade, professional equipment used by our team will ensure that your carpets are clean and dry; thereby leaving no chance for wicking to occur.

DIY Tips on Removing Carpet Stains

  • Get rid of the coffee or tea stain on your carpet by pouring a bit of beer on top of the stain and rubbing it lightly.
  • Add 1 cup clear ammonia to 2 litres of warm water. Sponge the stains on the carpets with the solution. After the carpet has completely dried, repeat this procedure if the stains still exist.
  • Make a mixture of 2 tablespoons salt, ½ cup vinegar and 2 tablespoon borax and rub it lightly on the stain. Once the solution is dry, vacuum the carpet.
  • To remove a pen/grease/oil stain, mix milk with corn-starch to make a paste and apply it to the stain. Let it dry for a few hours and then brush off the residue, followed by vacuuming.
