It’s been constantly raining here in Tacoma, and you know what that means: mud in the carpet. No matter how much you try to stop it (with the “No Shoes” rule, and placing mats all over the place), mud will creep into your home.

If you’re currently in this dreadful situation, worry not! The Cleanpro Tacoma Professionals have the ultimate guide to getting mud out of your carpet.

Getting Mud Out of Your Carpet


Get the Excess Out

If the amount of mud that made its way into your house is considerable, you’ll probably need to take a piece of cloth and a knife and remove it manually. Just be careful not to smudge the mud into the carpet any further!

Wait Til It's Dry

When dealing with carpet stains, the common advice is to “act quickly”. But to clean out mud, it’s just easier to do it after it’s dry and all is left is dirt. You can even move the process along by leaving a fan on in the affected area.

Vacuum Thoroughly

Now that you have a patch of dirt in your floor, all you need to do is vacuum it away. Make sure to vacuum thoroughly and in every direction imaginable to lift off all the dirt from your flooring!

To Remove the Stain

Certainly, the most annoying thing about getting mud in your carpet is the stain that it leaves even after it has dried out. To eliminate it, follow these steps:

-Mix water and dishwasher, and with a piece of cloth, blot the area to get rid of even more dirt.

-Then, use vinegar and dab the area until the stain is completely gone! 

-Allow the area to dry out and you’ll be set.

Getting mud in your carpet is annoying but it’s something we’ll all have to deal with at some point (probably). Nonetheless, if you follow these steps, you stand a good chance of not having a headache caused by a dirty carpet!
