Five Easy Steps on How to Clean Old Carpet Stains

Carpet Cleaners Can Remove Even The Toughest Food Stains

If you are like most people, you have been putting off large purchases because of the economic crisis.  Maybe you need to replace your carpet because it’s old and dirty but you simply don’t have the money to do it.  While you are saving your money to replace your old carpet, you should practice regular carpet cleaning so that the new carpet will not suffer the same fate after a few months.  Since old carpets can wear and tear easily, you might want to hire a carpet cleaning company London.  Their professional cleaners will gently clean your carpet without damaging it, using the appropriate technique for the particular fabric, whether its carpet steam cleaning or dry cleaning.

If you are doing your own carpet cleaning service, you first need to remove any embedded foods from the fibres.  This can be tricky because if the food debris has been on the carpet for months or even years, you will need to use a warm towel to try to soften it.

  • Soak a clean towel in warm water and apply a mild detergent to it.
  • Place the towel over the stained area and blot gently.  This should loosen the stain, which will allow you to remove it.
  • If this fails, you may have to use a knife or other sharp utensil to cut through the hardened food debris.
  • Once you have removed all of the difficult food particles from your carpet, you will need to vacuum over it.
  • Apply the warm towel and detergent to remove the remaining stains.

Of course, it is a lot easier when you act immediately after an accident occurs.  Even the toughest stains, such as wine or coffee can be removed given the knowledge, and there are a number of websites that can provide helpful carpet cleaning tips.

If the thought of carpet cleaning is overwhelming then you can always hire carpet cleaners London.  With just one phone call you can receive excellent carpet cleaning services at affordable carpet cleaning rates.
