25 April 2016 | (No Comments)

Coffee, wine, your dog’s feces – your carpet has seen it all. It is only natural to grab a sponge and a bucket, and start scrubbing the carpet when you see a stain on it.

Before you launch your offensive on the stain, take a minute or two plan your attack. Your cleaning strategy can actually make a whole world of difference which can leave your carpet stain free instantly or stuck with a spot which stays forever.

There are a million of ways of going about dealing with a stain. However, there are some that just won’t work. In this blog, we have busted a few carpet cleaning myths. Read on to discover them:

Drying the Stain to Remove it Easily

Most homeowners think that if they let the stain dry out before cleaning, it will be easier to root it out. Carpet staining is usually due to the spillage of liquids, and if you allow a liquid to dry, it will actually set in deep. The liquid will penetrate deeper into the layers of fiber, making it difficult to remove the stain.

Scrubbing Instead of Blotting

Scrubbing is the vigorous to and fro motion, while blotting means gently dabbing the cloth over the stain.

Scrubbing helps disperse the stain particles, spreading the stain molecules even further. This creates an even larger mess for you to deal with. On the other hand, blotting roots out the stain without diffusing the stain further.

After you are done with your spot removal treatment, make sure that your carpet is damp, not wet. Wetness disturbs the weaves of your carpet, leading to contracting or stretching of the fiber, depending upon the type of weave. Pat dry your carpet with a help of sponge, and allow fresh air to pass through the room to ensure quick dryness.
