4 Carpet Cleaning Hacks for Your Spring Clean
Spring Cleaning Hacks for Your Carpet
Spring is right around the corner, bringing with it warmer weather, longer days and the perfect opportunity to give your house a good spring cleaning.
It goes without saying that this will probably involve a thorough scrub down of your kitchen and bathroom, but remember to pay special attention to your carpets, too. Taking a proactive approach to carpet maintenance can help keep them looking beautiful for years to come while improving the overall hygiene of your home.
Dang Good is seen as one of the leading carpet cleaning companies in Calgary, we’re well versed in what it takes to keep carpets in pristine condition. Here are four of our favorite carpet cleaning hacks:
1. Use Baking Soda to Remove Stains
Baking soda is renowned for being able to clean a variety of surfaces and carpet is no exception. While it isn’t quite as powerful at removing stains as steam cleaning in Airdrie, baking soda is reasonably effective at combating blemishes and discolorations. Simply sprinkle some baking soda over the stained area, mist it with some hot water and allow it to sit damp overnight. In the morning, vacuum the baking soda up and the stain should be gone!
2. Pick Up Pet Hair With a Squeegee
We couldn’t live without our pets, but there’s no denying that our four-legged friends are not great for our carpets. If your vacuum cleaner struggles to pick up the pet hair lodged in your carpet, it might be time to try a completely different type of cleaning tool: a squeegee. Give the squeegee a good rinse to remove any existing grime, run it along the carpet and watch as it effortlessly pulls the hair from the carpet.
3. Embrace the Lint Roller
It’s no secret that lint rollers are great for removing loose fibres from your clothes, but you may not be aware that they can also be used to cleanse your carpet to a level that most commercial vacuum cleaners can’t compete with. Do keep in mind that it takes a fair bit of time and effort to lint roll your carpet (particularly if it’s a big area), so in some cases it may be easier to opt for professional carpet cleaning in Calgary.
4. Fluff Your Carpet With Ice
If your furniture has been resting on the same spot for a while, the carpet has probably developed unsightly dents. The good news is that this is reversible. Place an ice cube in the dent, allow it to completely melt and then use a soft towel to gently blot up the water. Place the towel over the dent and run an iron across the towel until the carpet is nearly dry. Finally, let the carpet air dry and manually fluff up the fibres using your hands.
DIY methods are a great way to keep your carpets healthy, but for best results, you should call in the experts.
