Carpets are present in most households. However the most prevalent problem with all carpets, area rugs and floor mats is that they are the perfect place for microorganisms to breed and multiply. The reason is simple. The deep-rooted pile is a reservoir of everything you bring in with your shoes, lawn chemicals, lead dust, animal faeces and everything else found on the outdoor grounds.
Also such carpets are a favourite spot for the untrained kittens and pups to pee and poop which once again attracts microbes and stains and makes it difficult to maintain.
Encourage family members and guests to remove shoes at the door – Pollutants, mud and dirt enter the indoor with the shoes and are tracked onto carpets.
Vacuum twice a weak – Vacuum helps reduce the level of dust mites, which are a potential cause’s asthma and allergic problems. Also it helps to clean the dirt before it settles in and creates a stain. A vacuum cleaner with strong suction and rotating brushes used back and forth over the same spot several times, especially in high problem areas can be really effective.
Clean up Spills immediately to Prevent Stains – Spills should be immediately taken care to avoid stains by covering the spot with clean cloth or tissues papers or with a clean wet cloth. The spill should not be rubbed or scrubbed as it may damage the carpet fibres and aggravate the stain spread.
Household Ingredients – Club soda is useful to remove red wine stains. Ice cube comes handy to harden gum and candle wax and scratch it off. As a last resort alcohol can be used to remove stain from the carpet, applied in a small amount to the stain and rubbed with a towel helps remove the stain. For deodorizing baking soda can be used which has inherent properties to soaks up the odor.
