The Right Stain Removal Techniques
Stains can make a carpet appear more soiled than it really is, so no carpet cleaning method is complete unless all removable stains have disappeared. A basic knowledge of different stains and chemicals for spot cleaning and removal is vital, since improper or indiscriminate use of spotting chemicals can worsen a problem.
Helpful Tips on Spot Cleaning
Always blot or scrape up as much material as possible before is soaks into the carpet.
For blotting liquids, use white paper towels or tissues. You might use a cloth but it is less desirable. If used too long, the matter soaked into the cloth will redeposit into the fibres and spread the stain.
For scraping solid matter, use a table knife. Never use a sharp instrument.
Do not allow solvent-based products to penetrate to the backing. They might damage and soften the latex compounds used to strengthen the carpet backing.
