The carpet in your home is a comfortable and beautiful addition to any home. After the carpet is installed, it needs to be cared for on a regular basis by vacuuming and having it professionally cleaned. Another area that needs to be dealt with is to have stains treated and removed. If you try and treat stains with the wrong method you could damage your floors. A professional carpet cleaning company can come out and treat stains on your carpet when they clean them but usually you want to treat the stain as soon as possible to lessen it. You never want to wait as the faster you get to it the better your chances are of getting it removed.
Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning lists ways that you can treat for stains on your carpet.
Ice Cubes: If you have a sticky piece of candy or gum that is stuck on the carpet or rug it can seem hopeless. It can be removed if you use the right method. Just like any other stain it is a great idea to try and remove it as soon as possible. The longer it sits the more it will get ground into the carpet fibers and the more difficult it will be to treat. Take the ice cubes and place them in a bag and lay over the sticky candy or gum. Allow it to sit on the spot for several minutes to be sure that the gum is frozen and more solid. This will allow you to take a hard card of knife and scrape away the gum.
Baking Soda: If you are looking to remove a stain that also has odor such as pet urine or coffee it is a great idea to use baking soda. You want to start by removing any excess moisture with a dry cloth. Then sprinkle the baking soda over the area and allow it to sit in place for several minutes up to overnight. Once it has done that it will need to be vacuumed up. You can repeat the process if it is necessary.
Table Salt: If you have a red wine stain on your carpet that needs to be treated you want to get to it fast! The first thing you want to do is to dilute the red wine using water or even a white wine,. Then use a dry cloth to soak up all the moisture that you can. After that you can sprinkle the salt on the spot and allow it to sit. This will help soak up as well as break down the stain. Once it has sat you can use the vacuum to remove the salt and pull up the stain at the same time.
