Title: Cleaning Your Carpet Like A Pro Summary: Carpet is one of the most common flooring materials because of the several advantages it offers. However like any other flooring material this comes with some cons and one of the major disadvantages is the cleaning and maintenance. Keeping your carpets always looking great and smelling fresh can be a taxing task. As such here are some home remedies you can do for two of the most common and difficult stains – butter and grape juice. Body: There are many styles in which people live. Some people keep a very tidy home while some prefer not to bother. In any case if you own a home in which there is carpet it is important to have some carpet cleaning skills handy. Whether you are meticulously clean or don’t mind a food fight once in a while eventually there is bound to be some food spilled on your carpeting and you’ll want to know what to do. While there are a number of companies qualified in carpet cleaning in Elgin you may find that it isn’t always the most convenient option to call a professional into your home. And in the event that a carpet cleaning emergency arises and you are stuck with no professional carpet cleaning service on speed dial here are some tips and tricks that you may be able to use until you can get the help you need. Butter There are a few food items that qualify for the toughest carpet cleaning in Elgin and butter is one of them. In this article we will focus on food stains that are nearly impossible to remove from carpets but can be done with these simple tricks. Even if there is no carpet in the kitchen with children food can walk from one end of the house to the other on its own. As with any stain you’ll need to try to remove it as quickly as possible. The longer it sits the more likely it will not come out. The first thing you do to remove butter is to scrape off as much as you can. This can be achieved with a knife or utensil of any kind. The more excess butter you can remove first the better. Butter is a greasy substance so it is best when the grease is absorbed. You can do this with any powdery substance such as baking soda or cornstarch. Let the powder sit about fifteen minutes and vacuum up the remainder. Use soap and water to clean the area after and dry with towel. For additional drying you can use a hair dryer or light fan but be sure to get all of the soap out of the carpet before you dry. Grape Juice

slide 2:

Carpet cleaning in Elgin can be tough for a certain things and these often include grape juice. Just like most stains the longer this sits the harder it is to remove. One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make is using the one stain remover they have in the house on every stain no matter the surface. With a stain as fickle as grape juice it is important to know what your carpet can withstand. Pouring a bottle of bleach on your brown shag carpet will most definitely not yield positive results. Therefore you should first test out some carpet cleaners to determine what your carpet can handle. You will start removing the stain by blotting the grape juice. This should remove a good portion of the juice before you tackle what has sunk into the fibers. Once you have blotted the stain you can begin removing by using whatever worked best during your trial period. If warm water and liquid soap worked best with your carpet fibers then use that. If your carpet responded well to a carpet stain remover feel free to use that to remove the stain. With most remedies it will require blotting and then removing the chemical or soap with warm water. This is followed by drying the carpet with a towel hair dryer or fan. There are several other stains that may require professional carpet cleaning in Elgin but for these two these are the best stain removing methods you can try. For more questions on stain removal contact your local company.
