Owning a carpet is both a great thing, and sometimes a very trying thing. You go above and beyond to keep your carpet clean, but despite this, days of running outside and then inside will plague your carpet with dirt, on top of the usual accidental spills and dropping of items.
However, have no fear!
There are ways to get your carpet back to its former glory; these are four of the best carpet cleaning methods to restore carpet, and while on a budget, too! Try these and your carpet is sure to look brand new.
Use club soda.
Some days will require the presence of beer, wine, and other spirits after a tough day. However, even the most coordinated person can drop their drink and cause a huge mess; especially after having an alcoholic drink or two. When there is a beer or wine spill, you can use some club soda. Simply put a bit of club soda on a cloth and blot up the mess. Afterward, take warm water on another cloth and blot at where the stain was to get rid of any excess club soda and left over particles of the stain.
Battle wax stains with heat.
This might sound crazy, but it actually works. If you have a bit of wax, be it candle or any other wax type, you can heat it up to remove it from your carpet. To do this, place a cloth over the wax area on your carpet, take an iron and place it over the cloth and heat it up. Use the iron for ONLY thirty seconds or it can cause an issue. From there, you take a butter knife and scrape the wax off of your carpet, leaving the carpet looking like brand new.
Pet accidents can be cleaned with organic solutions.
We love our pets, and we have trained them to always go in their designated areas when they need to relieve themselves. However, sometimes when you have to go, you have to go. You can clean up your pets accident by using organic cleaning supplies. Organic cleaning supplies come as a spray. This is better than using chemicals that can make your pet sick if they lick it, or it can cause damage to your carpet. Spray the organic solution on the stain, and scrub. Afterward, wipe up the excess spray with paper towels and you're good to go.
Deep clean whenever possible.
Even if there are no accidents, you still have to content with dirt, hair, and other particles that get embedded in your carpet. To keep your carpet healthy and looking brand new, the best thing to do is deep clean it twice a month. The solution in a deep cleaner will get down to the very bottom of your carpet and get anything that may be stuck there, leaving your carpet looking flawless. Depending on the size of your family and how many pets you may have, once every four to six months would be good to deep clean your carpet.
