Carpet Cleaning Tips

Do you have one of those stubborn carpet beer stains that won't come out? If it is really beginning to bother you then here are some great tips to help you get rid of that annoyance. We highly recommend the - Unbelievable Stain Remover. This is an effective formula to use especially with stubborn smelly beer stains.

Make sure you blot the area of the stain before applying with a clean white cloth, do not wet it under any circumstances. Apply the unbelievable stain remover to the nasty spot and leave it there for at least five minutes. Once the five minutes are up, neutralize the area by rinsing with cold water and blot dry carefully with a clean white cloth or towel. Dry the area with a fan heater or hair dryer. At all stages make sure you clean your hands or use protective gloves. If the stain persists repeat the process until you are happy with the results.

Carpets are complex textile products and can be made up of many different fibers which can be blends or pure fibers. There are natural or manmade fibers. Different schools of thought suggest that man made may be better than natural whereas others believe the opposite. Whichever carpet you have, make sure you are aware of the properties of the fiber so that you know how to treat it.

Natural fibers such as wool and silk will burn and give off a pleasant odor that may remind you of feathers or hair. Manmade fibers melt under intense heat and do not emit a particularly pleasant odor. One has to be very careful with natural fibers as they can dissolve in chlorine bleach whereas the manmade fibers are more resilient, although the two types of nylon, regular nylon and stain resistant nylon do dissolve in hydrochloric acid. Today, most commercial carpets are made from nylon and stain resistant nylon which have by far the best properties.

Having a carpet in your home or office is considered an investment and needs to be looked after and nurtured. There are some relatively easy ways to ensure that your carpet remains as clean as is possible in the environment that it resides;

- Regular Vacuuming - as mentioned previously, plenty of care needs to be applied to a carpet, it should be vacuumed regularly. Think about how many people or animals pass over your carpet on a daily basis, bringing in dirt and soiling it. If possible you should try and vacuum at least once a day or every other day depending on the traffic on your carpet.

- Deal with Spots and Marks Immediately - how many times has something spilt on your carpet and you can't be bothered to get up and clean it just then. This is a big mistake, the longer you leave a mark on a carpet the more ingrained it can get into the carpet and work its way into the fibers. The stain will become more and more stubborn and difficult to clean the longer you leave it untreated. So for that little bit of effort at the beginning, you are saving yourself more hassle in the long run.

- Always Test an Area - even if you are sure you have used the detergent before on your carpet, test a small inconspicuous spot again before you spill loads on a central area. Detergent formulas sometimes change from batch to batch and your carpet may react differently with age. Even if it is a small spot you want to clean, the area can turn into a larger mess if the detergent has reacted with the fibers. For a little bit of extra effort it is worth testing a small area.
