Having carpets and upholstery as part of your furnishings gives warmth and comfort to your house. However, even if they won't necessarily wear away, their appearance can deteriorate over time and become less attractive.

One of the major problems most homeowners face is how to clean the carpets and upholstery. The general rule for carpet cleaning is the sooner, the better! So, if you act fast, you will need to clean less. Nevertheless, adding to the concerns about health and hygiene that Covid-19 exposed, it's essential to have a proper cleaning and maintenance that will not only keep your carpets and upholstery looking great for their entire life but it'll also help you remove dirt, pet hair, food, and germs that vacuums missed.

Depending on the materials of your carpet, different methods should be used for vacuuming, liquid spills, and deep cleaning.

But the basis for all kinds of carpets to keep them as clean as possible is to limit how much dirt gets into them in the first place. Declare a shoes-off rule, or place sturdy doormats at all entries. Frequent vacuuming is the only way to keep grit from becoming embedded, and having a vacuum that's easy to use is crucial.

Carpet cleaning is all about developing a routine. You will see great results if you get into a good routine and keep it up. Some tips can always help clean the carpet and bring it back to its original condition.

  • Drinks: Soft drinks and wine are some of the most common spills on your carpet or upholstery. If this happens, blot the area with a tissue or a dry cloth to absorb the moisture. Once you've spotted the area, you can gently clean the area with warm water and dishwasher liquid.
  • Food spills: You can use baby wipes to wipe and clean the area for minor spills. For solid stains like ketchup or chocolate, dip a cloth in white vinegar and apply it to the stained spot. Repeat this several times until the stain disappears.
  • Candlewax and gum: Removing candle wax and gum from carpet or upholstery without damaging the material is tricky. For this, freeze the candle wax or gum using ice. Once frozen, carefully pull it out from the carpet using an unsharpened object like a spoon. If there is any water residue, blot the carpet with a towel. Vacuum the carpet thoroughly.
  • Bad odor: To eliminate bad odors from your carpet, sprinkle baking soda abundantly onto the carpet. Let it stay for some time, preferably overnight. Vacuum the carpet thoroughly to remove the powder.
  • Oil: To remove an oil spill on the carpet, place a paper towel over the spill and iron the paper towel in a warm setting. The paper towel will absorb the oil. Vacuum the area thoroughly and wash with a dishwashing detergent.

The best advice is to clean carpets before they become saturated with soil. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty, you only see the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged. If you wait until carpets look dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance.

However, contacting a professional cleaning company is the best option if you cannot clean it as thoroughly as you would like.
