How to successfully clean your carpets the fast and easy way. Read the tips in the list below.
Rug Cleaning, Upholstery Steam Cleaning & Water Removal Services
The basic form of carpet cleaning involves vacuuming and this should be done right. One round of cleaning in high power will just not do. Go over each section many times and ensure that you work slowly. This way all the embedded dust and grime is removed effectively. Plush carpets look beautiful but tend to absorb more dirt and they need to be vacuumed thoroughly.
High traffic carpet vacuuming
Experts at Carpet Cleaning Union City recommend carpet owners to pay close attention to areas where traffic is relatively high. Carpets at entrances, seating areas and corridors usually carry a high volume of dust and dirt. The style of vacuuming should be different is such cases. Use crisscross strokes and ensure that they overlap. This way dirt is eliminated effectively.
Stains might do a comeback
Depending on the make of your carpet, and how severely it has been soiled in the past, you might find that the odd spot may reemerge after cleaning. If this happens you can attempt to clean it again with warm water and a more intensive soap than was previously used. If this fails, then you will need to call a residential carpet cleaner to inspect the problem.
Do not pour water on carpet and rug stains
This is certainly not an equivalent to washing. Water can only spread the compound to the surrounding fibers and take it further down as well. Basically, you will end up with a bigger and deeper spot than before. For effective damage control, you need to use a dry paper towel to blot the spot gently. The towel will absorb most of the liquid.
Never put potted plants on your carpet!
A common mistake homeowners often make is to put a potted plant on a rug or carpet and assume it will cause no damage. When the plant is removed a few years later, they are startled to discover that without proper air circulation, tiny amounts of moisture over time have rotted the fabric causing irreparable damage. Our experts will do our best to repair the damage, and often we can help the situation, but in many cases the damage can't be completely repaired.
