At any time when you have individuals who prefer spending more time outdoors than staying in your home, there are high chances that some of the outdoor activities get dragged onto your carpet. In most cases, the outdoor dirt becomes stains and ruins your carpets. Grass and mud stains can be especially difficult to get off from your carpet. The following are some carpet stain removal tips:
Grass stains are quite complicated to remove, because of a particular element that grass possesses making it to bond fast to other materials. Treat the stain as soon as possible because leaving it for too long – as with most stains – makes it harder to remove.
- Use a hose and a suctioning tool to suck the stain; don’t use a vacuum. Typically, the rotating brush might push the stain deeper into the fibers.
- Dilute the stain by blotting with a white cloth soaked in clean, warm water (don’t rub or scrub).
- A cleaner with a PH score of 7 is perfect. Almost all dish washing soaps have a PH score of 7. Mix a cup of water with a half teaspoon of dish soap.
- Sponge the mixture onto the grass stain and carry on blotting out the stain.
- Stay away from the practice of using cleaners with ammonia or degreasers.
Carpet stain removal tips for removing mud stains:
Highlighted below are steps to remove dirt and mud stains from your carpet efficiently;
- Dried mud is less difficult to clean, if there is fresh mud on your carpet, allow it to dry. If it is extremely wet, blot the moisture with a paper towel and leave to dry. Blot only and don’t try rubbing or scrubbing as doing so would spread the mud and push it further inside the fibers.
- Slowly and meticulously vacuum the blemished area (once the mud is completely dried) to remove as much dirt as possible. There’s no such thing as too much vacuuming, go over it, again and again, to be sure that all dirt has been removed.
- Once you’re fulfilled with the amount of dirt that has been removed, mix up some detergent in a spray bottle or bucket and then combine a teaspoon mild dishwashing soap with a cup of warm water.
- Sponge the solution on the stain, don’t saturate too much. Blot up the stain with a clean cloth each time.
- Change cloths until the stain is completely lifted.
- Spray cool water onto the cleaned area.
- Use a clean, dry towel to blot the area and allow to air dry.
