Carpets may be a nice decorative detail and may add to the overall warmth and comfort of your home, but maintaining them can sometimes seem as an extreme bodybuilding workout. Especially, if you have kids and/or pets who are main ‘offenders’ of frequent stains. The best way to avoid hours of scrubbing is by spot-cleaning promptly. Of course, you should have your carpets detail-cleaned at least once a year. For this, it is best to hire a reputable carpet cleaning Gold Coast company as they have the expertise and the equipment needed for such task. In the mean time though, it is recommended to take care of the irritating stains to keep your carpets looking superb.
Remove Gum – Do not try to scrape gum with a knife or similar sharp object. Instead go over it with an ice cube which will stiffen it and gum will practically fall on its own. In case there is a stain, place a sheet of paper over and go over the area with a warm iron. Stain will disappear.
No More Red Wine Stains – If after a small reunion with friends you’re left with not only a pile of dishes but few red wine stains as well, do not panic. Before you contact carpet cleaning Gold Coast professionals, try this trick – blot area with clean cloth, then sprinkle baking soda or salt directly on the stain, wait 5 minutes and vacuum. Repeat if necessary.
Clean Oil Spots Instantly – To remove oil stain from carpet, grab the baby powder, sprinkle well on the affected area, wait around 15 minutes and then vacuum. You may need to repeat the process more than once. Be determined as result is a super clean carpet.
Easy Candle Wax Removal – If you were unfortunate enough to accidentally drop burning candle, do not go into frenzy mode over candle wax on your carpet. Candle wax can easily be removed if you follow this tip. Wait for wax to cool and then scrape off as much as you can with a blunt knife. You’ll be left with a stain but you can easily get rid of it by placing a sheet of newspaper over the area and going over the stain with warm iron few times. Stain will completely disappear.
Remove Odor From Carpets – Carpets take most of the beating where there are kids and pets. To remove funky odor and freshen up your carpets, use this tip. Once a week, sprinkle baking soda over your carpets, leave it on for about half an hour and then vacuum. Results will surprise you.
Hopefully, these tips will help you maintain your carpets better. Regular vacuuming is a must and always try to spot clean to prevent stubborn stains. And at least once a year have your carpets professionally cleaned. There are many carpet cleaning Gold Coast companies that will do a quick and good job at very affordable price.
