SAVE ON CARPET CLEANING 5 practical tips on how to ease household chores
Take note of practical tips on how to keep carpets in your home clean for as long as possible. This will save you a lot of money on dry cleaning, and the chic of your rug will stay with you for a long time.
Have you ever noticed that carpet cleaning becomes more and more difficult over time? Or that with the same actions you don't get the same result? The thing is that any pile will definitely get flattened one day. As a result, dirt and dust will get stuck in it.
To avoid this, experts recommend cleaning the rug with a brush at least once every 30 days, gently lifting the pile. The most smashed part of the pile can be plumped up with ice. Take a piece and put it on it. Having melted, the ice softens the pile, so you can easily straighten it even with a toothbrush (which you no longer in use, of course).
After this treatment, your vacuum cleaner can easily cope with dust and small debris in the depths of the pile.
Dumping tea or coffee on the carpet is as simple as that. Wondered or distracted one can spill it on a rug and a puddle will spread across the carpet at a suspiciously unusual speed. In this case, do not waste time on drama, try to blot the tea with a towel or napkin at lightning speed so that it does not get absorbed.
But if you are late then mix a glass-cleaner with water (in ratio of 1:2). You can also use a mixture of baking soda, dishwashing detergent, and vinegar.
Note: Before using the mixture, test it on a small area of the rug.
Why not wash the rugs in the washing machine? Unless it is not recommended to do so in instructions. You certainly do have such a rug in the bathroom, hallway, or on the balcony. Just don't wash it in hot water. And forget about bleach. After that dry it outdoors in the shade.
Carpet cleaning with simple things, which you keep in the kitchen or on bathroom shelf, of course, saves money. They can be easily found in every home. But using them when cleaning a rug, the followings should be taken into account.
As you know, ammonia or vinegar has a pungent odor. Therefore, after the procedures, you will have to ventilate the room for a long time.
When very dirty, especially if the carpet is woven with natural fibers, baking soda may not help.
Starch is of no use, and probably will harm it if the carpet is dark.
It is not recommended to use kerosene and gasoline when cleaning the carpet. But if this is the only thing left in your house, or you don’t want to spend on dry cleaning, first try the liquid on a small area. It should also be noted that it will take a long time to ventilate the room.
To ease your household chores, when buying a rug, choose carpets or paths made of synthetic fibers. Artificial carpet is practical, so buying such a carpet for the living room, kitchen, bedroom and even for the balcony is the best choice you can make.
