Spring Clean Your Carpet This May

Somehow, it’s that time of year again. The Easter bunny has come and gone, days are getting longer, and coats are no longer necessary on evening walks. If you haven’t already, you’re probably feeling some pressure to give your house a refresh, perhaps have a clear-out and make your home sparkling clean for the oncoming warmer months. 

There are few things quite as frustrating as cleaning a room top to bottom only to uncover pesky stains that won’t budge, ruining the pristine look you were going for. If this scenario resonates with you, worry no more. We’ve got you covered with our comprehensive guide to making those carpets look as good as new.

Remove Stains From Easy-Clean Carpets

The first step to any carpet cleaning is thorough vacuuming. There’s no point trying to get out stains if your floor is scattered with crumbs, mud and dust; you’ll likely only end up scrubbing new stains into the carpet. Once you’ve ensured all the easily removable dirt is gone, it’s time to tackle the more challenging parts.
If possible, it’s always best to perform this process as soon as the stain occurs, as it will become harder to remove the longer it is left. Start by making a solution of household bleach, one part bleach to ten parts warm water. Apply the solution to a white cloth and gently dab the stain, starting from the outside and working inwards. Refrain from scrubbing at the carpet, as you run the risk of pushing the stain deeper into the fabric. You could also end up damaging the carpet. If it isn’t budging, try adding a little more bleach to the solution. Once the stain has vanished, use a paper towel to pat the carpet dry.

Remove Stains From Wool Carpets

Again, make sure to vacuum your floor before anything else, and try to remove the stain as soon as it happens. Start by using a small amount of warm water and a paper towel to gently blot the stain. Avoid using too much water, as this could damage the wool and cause a lingering odour. Once the stain starts to fade, use a white cloth and warm water to continue blotting it. Eventually, it should disappear.

Make Your Home That Little Bit More Homely
