DIY Tips To Keep Your Carpet Smelling Better Than EVER!
Have a pet? An old carpet? A random stain from years ago that constantly smells?! All of the above? Amp up the ambiance of your home by keeping your carpet maintained, smelling fresh AND looking pristine with Perth Carpet Cleaning!
If your carpet is prone to stains, there is a significant chance that there might be some particles still present in the carpet fibres that may cause odour to emanate from your carpet, even if you have dutifully cleaned the stain. That is why you need to use a carpet cleaner or deodorising products to get rid of that odour that may push your carpet condition from mere good, to excellent.
DIY Carpet Cleaning Tips For Home
Deodorizing with vinegar:
YES – Vinegar! It goes great with carpets as well as chips! Spray vinegar on your carpet and let it sit until the vinegar completely dries off. The reason why vinegar tops the list is because it is a natural deodorizing ingredient that is odourless once it dries off. Vinegar also has odour absorbing properties, which eliminate any other odour that may be lingering in your carpet. (Also great for the kitchen sink drain!)
Deodorize with Baking-soda:
Mix half a cup of baking soda and borax with one teaspoon of cinnamon. Dust your carpet with this mixture and let it sit for around half an hour, after which you can vacuum clean the carpet. Voila! You have a clean and fresh, earthy smelling carpet!
Deodorize carpets with vodka:
Did someone say vodka?! Vodka can be used to get rid of foul odour as it can remove stain and exterminate bacterial compounds. Especially in cases of pet urine, clean the stain and spray vodka on the cleaned area. After 15 minutes, remove the moisture by gently pressing paper napkins to the wet surface. Proceed to vacuum clean your carpet and your carpet is restored!
Preventive cleaning is crucial to avoid odour-emanating carpets, these methods include:
Open up the windows and doors to let fresh air come in. Proper ventilation allows air to escape, thereby not trapping foul smell inside a space.
To attain a perfect living space, it is important to deal with the humidity inside the house. Eradicate the chance of growth of mould or mildew, as a result of humidity, by installing dehumidifiers.
Good old fashioned, regular cleaning
The most important aspect of keeping a clean carpet and hence a clean environment is to clean regularly. Clean your floors with brooms and mops and vacuum your carpet at least once a week. Prevent dirt and debris from sticking to your carpet by vacuuming regularly. And if your carpet is stained, tend to it immediately before it seeps inside through the fibres. And after the stain is properly treated and removed, use a carpet cleaner and deodorizer to eradicate any residual odour.
