4 Carpet Troubleshooting Tips

4 Carpet Troubleshooting Tips


1. If it has lost its original color …

The wear and tear and direct sunlight “eat” the color of the carpets. Revive it with three simple homemade tricks.

·    Use salt. Mix in a bowl a handful of salt and water to make a paste. Spread it on the carpet and let it dry. Then, rub with a brush to remove the remains with a vacuum cleaner.

·    Vinegar is another effective remedy. Rub the surface of the carpet with a cotton cloth soaked in vinegar. Leave on for a few minutes and wipe with a dry cloth before vacuuming.

·    If the carpet is dark you can spread coffee grounds that are slightly moist over it. Simply remove them once they have dried.

There are professional services to take care of color run removal Portland and other locations.

2. If it has an unpleasant odor …

Neutralize it with bicarbonate of soda. Simply sprinkle it on the surface, let it act and remove it with the vacuum cleaner. Then aromatize the carpet with essential oils of lavender, cinnamon, and geranium … To make it easier, help yourself with a spray bottle.

3. If it has furniture marks …

You can repair them with ice cubes. Apply them to the affected area and let them melt. The carpet will be hollowed out and the crack will eventually disappear.

Dust is your greatest enemy

The dust spoils the fibers and, if not removed, can tear them, while caking the carpet. It is best to remove it with the vacuum cleaner.

4. If the carpet has been stained …

Act fast; it is the best stain remedy. The first thing you should do is remove the remains with absorbent paper. Clean from the edge to the center and never use a very wet sponge: you can make the stain expand. Before using any stain remover, try it in a non-visible area.
