When you walk about barefoot in the summer, nothing compares to the softness of a carpet, and it is warm on your feet in the winter. However, carpet cleaning can occasionally turn into a nightmare for the owner. No matter how careful we are, food crumbs, spills, and other bits of trash constantly end up on our carpets at home. Vacuuming a carpet thoroughly is typically the first step in cleaning it. You tend to feel that it wasn't enough, though. It can be challenging to maintain your carpets looking clean despite your best efforts. Accidents, spills, and stains are unavoidable, but there are several quick fixes that can help.

Tried and proven hacks

Lint roller

Typically, lint rollers are used to remove pet hair from garments. These rollers work quite well on carpets as well, though. They will grasp onto smaller particles, like dust, better than a vacuum because of their stickiness. The process of cleaning a carpet using a lint roller may seem to take a long time. That's not necessarily the case, though. Even though it might not be the quickest solution, it can help you get rid of any fibres the vacuum might have missed. If your carpets have too much dirt, you can hire an expert carpet cleaning service.

Fluff them up

Carpets placed in high-traffic areas of your home have a tendency to get flat over time, lose their fluffiness, and start to look faded. Additionally, they collect additional dirt, hair, allergies, and pet dander. The vacuum cleaner can pick up more dust and entrapped dirt if you fluff up the carpet. Spray a pre-treatment solution on the carpet and let it sit for a bit. After that, fluff the carpet fibres by raking over them. The strands will be able to stand up as a result.

Squeegee away pet hair

It can be difficult to remove pet hair. Even a vacuum finds it challenging to get rid of the fine hair that adheres to the carpet fibres. Using a window squeegee is an efficient strategy to remove stubborn fur. This brilliant tool is made to remove sticky materials from practically any surface. To clean an area, all you need to do is wet the squeegee by running it under the faucet until it is sufficiently damp. Keep going until all pet hair has been removed from the surface.

Club soda

Club soda is a cheap and efficient way to get rid of stains on carpets that just won't go away. The major ingredients in club soda are carbon dioxide, water, and a few salts. It has been demonstrated that the solution can fade stains, particularly those caused by beer and red wine spills, because of its weak acidity. Spray some club soda on the stained area first, and then rinse it after a while. To completely dry the area, use paper towels.

Always blot, never rub

Rubbing at dirt happens instinctively but there is a good risk that you'll work the stain into the cloth. This is the fastest way to result in permanent discolouration. No matter what cleaning product you choose, please be aware that only blotting will remove the stain because it involves exerting pressure on the area where the stain is located, which causes the liquid to be absorbed into the cloth or sponge. To prevent the stain from spreading further, blot from the outside inward.
