Follow These 7 Steps To Remove Carpet Stains

1. Inspect And Prepare

Before you start straight away removing the stains, the first step is to inspect and prepare the space. Conduct a thorough inspection of the carpet and stains. Assess all the stains on the carpet, and prepare the area by moving all the furniture aside. Then you can proceed to the next step.

2. Remove As Much Dust And Debris As Possible

Clear away any solid material covering the stain before using any stain remover. By doing this, you can avoid forcing any more dirt into the carpet’s fibers. Crush crumbly, dry material using a vacuum cleaner. Using a butter knife or popsicle stick, scrape anything sticky from the carpet or use a paper towel to absorb any extra liquid.

3. Blot The Stains

Before you apply stain removal, blot the stain with a dry or lightly damp cloth from outside in. Avoid scrubbing the stain, as it can further penetrate the carpet fiber. To avoid any risk of printing, use white cloth, as rubbing any other color cloth can add an additional stain.

4. Make A Solution

You can now make effective stain removal at home using home ingredients to clean the carpet. It can be baking soda, white vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide, as all these contain chemicals to fight stains. Let us look at two options for making a cleaning solution.

⇒ Baking soda and white vinegar: Mix equal parts of baking soda and white vinegar, one-fourth teaspoon of each for every 1 cup, or approximately 240 ml of water. Stir it and put it in a spray bottle. You can also add warm water to speed up the stain lifting time.

⇒ Hydrogen peroxide: Mix equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water to make a dilute solution that won’t harm the carpet. You can also add 2-3 drops of non-bleaching laundry detergent in it.

5. Blot The Stains With A Solution (Choose Any One)

Now choose any one solution and spray it on the affected area and let it sit for 10–15 minutes, or blot the stain with a dampened cloth in the solution.
Note: Ensure you test the solution on the hidden part of the carpet to check adverse effects.

6. Rinse The Carpet

Once you have cleaned the stain, rinse the stain and residue with a clean cloth dampened in fresh water to avoid any sticky or crunchy effects.

7. Vacuum The Carpet

After the complete cleaning and drying process, you can vacuum the area to further clean and lift the carpet fibers. You can sprinkle some baking soda or powdered carpet cleaner for further cleaning and odor removal.
