When someone enters you home, the first thing they are going to notice will be either the carpet, the flooring or the laminate. If you want to make a great firs impression, then you need to make sure your floor stays clean. That can be difficult to do, especially if you have kids at home or pets. You may not always be able to avoid stains and spills, but you can keep them from causing trouble for you.
Here are a few methods we use as professional cleaners to deal with stains in our own homes. Hopefully, these will save you time in cleaning up the next spill and money by ensuring you don’t have to replace your carpet after a nasty spill.
Carpet stains are some of the worst problems you will have to deal with in your daily cleaning. They are often very difficult to get out, and many times you have to use toxic chemicals to deal with them. The eraser cleaners often use dangerous chemicals that are not good for you or the environment. They can even be harmful to your carpet.
What most of these erasers contain is something called melamine foam. You can actually use the foam with some water to clean pretty much anything. It gets rid of stains on the first try, without having to buy expensive or dangerous cleaners.
You can do this for yourself- just test out a little of the foam and water mixture on a part of your carpet that no one will see. You can use a corner of the carpet or a part that is covered by a dresser or chair. Just rub a bit of the mixture on and see if it causes your carpet any damage. It will damage some types of carpet, but in most cases, it is perfectly safe to use. Still, make sure you test it before you use it on a highly visible part of the carpet. Otherwise, you could end up with something worse than the stain you were trying to get out.
The melamine foam erasers are somewhat different from many cleaning methods used for carpets. In the case of these erasers, all they need to start cleaning is some water. Just be sure you wear rubber gloves while you work to avoid damaging your hands. Some people will suffer an allergic reaction or skin irritations if the melamine comes in contact with their skin. You also don’t want to use this cleaner while kids or pets are present.
This foam looks just lie a regular sponge, but you will find that it are much more efficient at removing stains. The foam is very rigid which allows it to clean more briskly. It is also flexible, so you don’t have to worry about breaking it as you work.
You may not always be able to get out stains for yourself. For this kind of problem and any other domestic cleaning chore that you need help with, you should contact professional cleaning companies. These experts have the tools and the training to ensure effective cleaning each and every time.
So if you have a stain on your carpet or someone spills something on your rug, don’t stress out about it. Now you know what it takes to get rid of practically any carpet stain in a flash. Just keep the melamine sponge handy for your next emergency.
