Tips to Help You Remove Common Carpet Stains

The sun is out and the days are warmer, so why not head outdoors?The spring is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your family, but you will have to be careful as you make your way back into your home, specifically in carpeted areas of your house. You may not realize it, but you could be dragging outdoor elements into your home and causing hard to remove stains in your carpet. Before these stains have time to set, Tacoma Cleanpro in Pierce County has some useful tips for removing common spring stains.

Remove Dirt and Dirt Stains From Your Carpet

One of the most common stain causing agents for carpets is dirt. It is very easy to transport dirt into your home without even realizing it. If you have pets or small children in your home that enjoy playing outside, dirt may become a serious issue for your carpeting. If you notice dirt has made its way onto your carpet, take care of it right away. Start by removing any large chunks on the surface of your carpet. Next, vacuum up any loose and dry dirt particles left in your carpet. If the dirt has some moisture to it, it can easily start causing a stain. To remove a dirt stain, grab a white washcloth and mix together 1/4 teaspoon of liquid dish soap with one cup of warm water. Dip a bit of the washcloth into the cleaning solution you prepared and start dabbing the stain. Avoid rubbing the stain since this can make it spread further on your carpet. Dab from the outside and work your way in to prevent allowing the stain to grow. Let the solution sit on the stain for a few minutes and then blot it up. Using another clean, dry washcloth start dabbing the area and soak up the solution. The stain should transfer onto the clean cloth along with the moisture. Once the stain has been removed, lightly rinse the area with cold water and blot up the excess. Allow the area to dry before walking over it.

How to Get Rid of Grass Stains in Your Carpet

Grass is another common stain causing agent, not just on clothes, but also on carpet and upholstery. If you notice grass stains in your carpet, don't fret, they can be removed with a bit of elbow grease. Create a cleaning solution by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of laundry detergent with a cup of cold water and grab a clean washcloth. Dip your washcloth into the solution and start dabbing it onto the grass stain. To avoid damaging your carpet fibers, dab the area and avoid rubbing it. As you work your way from the outside of the stain to the center, check your washcloth to see if the stain is transferring. Once the solution is on the stain, grab another clean washcloth and dab the area to remove the moisture. As you dry the area, the stain should also come up with the cleaning solution. If the whole stain isn't removed with the first attempt, give it another go. Once you're satisfied, rinse the area with some water and remove the excess moisture by dabbing the area with another clean washcloth. Remove as much moisture as possible and let the area air dry.

Successfully Remove Water Stains From Your Carpet

Water probably doesn't sound like a common stain concern for carpet owners, but in reality it can cause unsightly marks. The reason water stains carpet isn't so much the water itself, but rather the particles it is carrying. Whether the stain is caused by a leaking pipe, runoff from plants, or was dragged in during a spring shower, it will likely leave some unattractive brown marks. Start by removing any dirt or other dry particles in the stain. Next, using a cleaning solution of dish soap and warm water, dab the area to remove any dirt stains left behind. You can also use a solution made up of equal parts white vinegar and cold water to remove the stain. Use a spray bottle to lightly moisten the stained area. Let the solution sit for a couple minutes and then proceed to dab the area with a dry washcloth. You can repeat this method as many times as necessary until you're satisfied. Remember to let the area dry before allowing foot traffic over the area.
