Precautions for DIY Carpet Cleaning
If you have carpeting in your home you will be very keen to keep it as clean as possible. It looks better and your home remains hygienic and fresh. When it comes to carpets and spills it is best to take care of these as soon as possible by following tips, depending on what the spill is.
For some tips on cleaning spills on your own, you can find out more information here. At Best 1 Cleaning and Pest Management we do recommend that you always seek our professional service for stains and carpet cleaning, but there are times when you need to take care of these things yourself to avoid further stain setting.
When you need to take care of a stain or spill yourself we urge that you take note of the precautions that we suggest.
A common mistake made by those cleaning carpets themselves is using too much carpet shampoo. There is a misconception that the more the shampoo the more easily dirt and stains are removed; this is not true.
Too much carpet shampoo can be hard to remove and if not removed properly white patches can be left behind. This will make your carpets look even more unsightly, which is exactly what you don’t want to do.
The excess stickiness left behind by the shampoo will make dirt and dust stick to the carpet too, making it look dirtier.
Carpet cleaning solutions
There are several carpet cleaning solutions available, but not all of these are of high quality. Different carpet fabrics can require different solutions and without expert knowledge this can be a mistake waiting to happen.
Always read the instructions carefully on carpet cleaning solutions and check to see if the product is suitable for your carpet type and that it has been tested.
