What’s the secret to keeping your carpets clean—especially when they’re bound to face spills, stains, and accidents?
Chem-Dry is here to help eliminate your stress with carpet cleaning in Dupont. And between our visits, these tips are sure to help keep your carpets looking their best.
#1 – Never rub carpet stains—gently blot them instead.
It may be an instinct to vigorously rub carpet stains. But keep in mind this can work them deeper into the fibers. Gently blot stains from the outside inward instead.
#2 – Remove stains using club soda.
Mix one part club soda with one part vinegar to create a highly effective solution for removing carpet stains. Also keep in mind that Chem-Dry harnesses the power of carbonation to lift carpet stains using far less moisture than steam cleaners.
#3 – Use a lint roller.
Get rid of crumbs, hair, and other participles vacuuming might miss with a lint roller.
#4 – Remove tough stains with hydrogen peroxide.
Hydrogen peroxide can remove even the toughest stains, like blood. Apply it full strength to your carpet then wipe it away using a soft cloth.
#5 – Get rid of pet hair with a squeegee.
A squeegee—intended for use on windows—can do wonders for lifting stubborn pet hair from carpet and upholstery.
#6 – Fluff matted down carpet with vinegar.
Dilute vinegar in equal amounts of water, then spray over matted down areas. Once the solution is absorbed, fluff the fibers using a spoon.
#7 – Use shaving cream on carpet stains.
Apply shaving cream directly to the stain, let it sit for 30 minutes, then blot dry. Clean away residue using a water vinegar solution.
#8 – Remove gum with an ice cube.
Press an ice cube over gum for about a minute. Once it’s frozen solid, carefully remove the gum using scissors or a knife.
#9 – Remove waxy stains with an iron.
Vacuum the spot. Treat it with 3 parts water and 1 part vinegar, place a towel over the stain, then iron over it. The heat should transfer the wax to the towel.
#10 – Cut grease on carpet with dish soap.
Dissolve a few drops of dish soap in a cup of warm water to remove stubborn, greasy stains from carpet.
#11 – Use area rugs and runners on carpet.
Rugs aren’t just meant for hard flooring. Place them over high traffic areas of your carpet for added stain and damage protection.
#12 – Take advantage of professional pet stain removal.
Chem-Dry breaks down stubborn odor crystals and stains trapped deep within your carpet. Keep up with professional pet stain and odor removal at least on an annual basis.
#13 – Keep up with routine deep cleanings.
Be sure to schedule a professional carpet cleaning at least once every year. Chem-Dry removes stains, germs, and allergens from your carpet, plus can help prevent and repel future stains with our specially formulated carpet protectant.
