5 Tips from Your Vancouver Carpet Cleaning ProsMay 2nd, 2018 | by Angelo | 0
As a Vancouver carpet cleaning company, the team at Angelo’s FabriClean has seen it all. No degree of stain prevention is 100% foolproof. But with a bit of time and preparation, it’s possible to prevent little accidents from becoming big problems.
1) Winning Technique: The Blot Any carpet cleaner will tell you never to rub stains—you blot them. It might feel like scrubbing is more effective, but what’s really happening is the stain is being driven deeper into the fibres of the carpet. Blotting draws the mess out. Dab the stain with a cleaning solution. And blot from the outside in using a clean, colourfast cloth, paper towels, or a sponge.
2) Creative Solutions There are some easy and inventive options when it comes to stain removal. Classic club soda is a tried and tested a go-to, either on its own or combined with vinegar. Soak the stain for a few minutes and then blot away. Repeat as needed. If no club soda is handy, shaving cream works surprisingly well. Apply and let it set for 30 minutes, then blot away. For grease, try dish washing detergent. And hydrogen peroxide is a sound treatment for blood stains.
3) Special Techniques If gum is stuck on the rug, don’t reach for the scissors. Instead, apply ice. Wait until the wad is solid and then lever it off with a spoon. Wax stains, on the other hand, require heat. Place a white cloth over the mess, then use an iron to warm the wax. Then scrape away as much as possible using a butter knife. After that, use paper towels on the surface and iron again, any remnants should stick to the paper and lift away after a few applications.
4) Pets Stains For pet-related accidents, an organic cleaner with enzymes is the best bet. There are many options for pet stains that will clean, sanitize, and deodorize. In this case, a little scrubbing might be necessary, but remember to be gentle.
