Carpet Cleaning Tips

Although getting your carpets cleaned is beneficial, sometimes knowing when to call is more important. Most carpet cleaners wouldn’t want you to know that there are easy steps to getting rid of those tough stains and spots. Here at Chem-Dry, customer satisfaction comes first so we are going to share a few of these tips with you.

The first solution only requires warm water and a white towel. Simply dampen the stain and then blot it with your towel. Be cautious when using this technique that you do not wipe or scrub.  This can damage your carpet and cause the stain to bleed into the surrounding carpet that was previously unstained. Continuing to blot and dab will be most effective.  It pulls the stain from the carpet to your rag. As you are blotting the stain, check the towel to see if the towel is darkening.  The darkening will indicate that the stain is transferring. Stop this technique if the stain isn’t transferring to the towel.

After water, club soda is the next step up. This is a great alternative because club soda is also a natural cleaner – using the same principles behind Chem-Dry’s cleaning solutions. The process is identical to the warm water stain lifting, simply replace the water with club soda. If this doesn’t get rid of it, then it’s time to call in the pros.

Our powerful, yet gentle techniques make us confident we can finally get rid of those pesky spots and stains by whisking away unwanted particles. Don’t let your carpet absorb the stain too long – call Chem-Dry today!
