Our Favorite Hacks for In-Between Carpet Cleaning Visits
Get ready to jot down our technicians’ top hacks for getting your carpet looking its best in between scheduled deep cleans:
Hack 1: Removing Carpet Dents
Carpet cleaning can be a tricky task, especially when it comes to carpet impressions caused by heavy furniture. Without the right tools and know-how, it might seem like an impossible feat! Thankfully, there’s a surprisingly low-effort solution for this carpet cleaning conundrum.
All you need is an ice cube. Put the cube onto the carpet impression and let it melt away into it. Then use a white cotton cloth to absorb whatever excess water goes into the fabric fibers. Securely tuck a second white towel overtop the carpet and then use an iron on top of it to warm up the carpet fibers until nearly dry – voila! It should leave them soft, pliable, and lifted back up to their original form.
Hack 2: Vacuum Shag Carpets With A Nozzle
Shag carpets are making a fashion comeback, but cleaning them is just as challenging as ever. Vacuuming regularly can lead to the shag fibers becoming frizzy, loosening, and shedding – which totally ruins the look of your carpet and creates a mess throughout your home.
To help avoid this, instead of vacuuming normally, use the hose attachment for more precise and concentrated cleanings. This nozzle will go deep into the roots of the shag pile, preventing it from being stressed during cleaning and therefore reducing the risk of shedding and frizziness. So ditch your regular vacuuming; with a little effort, you can keep your shag carpet looking its best!
Hack 3: Refresh Using Baking Soda
Baking soda is a true household hero, capable of reviving carpets that are beginning to smell musty without the time and hassle of a deep clean. To use it, simply mix some drops of citrus essential oils with a 16-ounce box of baking soda, sprinkle the mixture on your carpets, and then vacuum it up after five or ten minutes. This simple trick is an easy way to keep your carpets looking and smelling fresh.
Carpets are an important part of any home and by taking just a few extra steps in caring for them, you can keep them looking like new for much longer. By using some simple household ingredients, you can achieve amazing results in between professional carpet cleanings. So don’t be afraid to get creative in your fight against dirt, grime, and stains – your carpets and party guests will thank you for it in the long run!
