The majority of people in this country spend a lot of time and money getting their home just the way they like it and take great pride in their accomplishment. We spend a fortune on carpets, wallpaper and getting things painted and hate it whenever things get dirty or damaged.
Our home carpet is one of those things that seems to get covered in stubborn stains at some point no matter what we do but sometimes there are ways of getting it back in fine condition that don’t require expensive carpet shampoo or cleaning machines.
There are a few products that you may have in your house already that are useful carpet cleaning products in a pinch. These are: ice cubes to remove gum, ordinary rubbing alcohol to remove ink, WD40 that you usually to loosen locks but can also double as stain remover, or DeSolvit and Orange Clean to remove dried or hardened chewing gum.
Remember that spot cleaning will almost always leave a ring or a small mark no matter how carefully you try to remove the stain. If the area in question is in a very visible place, or if you have children who spill things often, or have pets, but you still want to keep your carpets looking like new, you must get a carpet shampoo rental that works with dry foam carpet shampoo and have your entire carpet shampooed.
Carpet cleaning products and carpet shampoos vary as to what type of stains they lift and how well they deodorize or disinfect your carpets. Discuss your specific carpet care needs with a professional carpet cleaner or invest in a Kirby, Hoover or Electrolux carpet shampoo machine and do it yourself as often as needed.
