Tips to Help You Remove Spring Carpet Stains

Keeping your carpets clean and looking bright doesn't have to be hard work. Even if you have some spills and accidents on your carpeting, there are ways to get rid of just about every type of stain. To get rid of some of the most common spring stains, DuPage Cleanpro in Kane County has some easy to follow tips that will keep your carpet looking great!

How to Remove Dirt Stains

Dirt stains can become more common during the warmer months of the year. The more time spent outdoors and in areas like parks, gardens, and in your yard can cause you to track more dirt into your home and carpet. If you notice a clump of dirt sitting atop your carpet or a stain caused by dirty shoes, a little elbow grease and a simple cleaning solution will do the trick. First, grab your vacuum and get to sucking up the excess dirt. As you vacuum the area, take long and slow passes over the stain. This will help you remove as much dirt as possible before getting to work. Once you're done vacuuming, mix together 1/4 teaspoon of mild liquid dish soap and one cup of lukewarm water. Using a clean, white washcloth, dab the solution onto the stain. Gently blot the area from the outside and work your way to the center. This technique will help you avoid damaging the carpet fibers and will keep the stain contained in the small area. As you blot the stain with the solution you should start to notice it transferring onto the washcloth. Continue blotting the stain with clean parts of the washcloth until it has all been removed. Avoid over saturating the area since a wet carpet and carpet padding can present their own issues. Next, blot the area with a dry washcloth to soak up as much moisture as possible. Let the spot dry completely before walking over it.

Make Mud Disappear From Your Carpet

If mud has been tracked onto your carpet after a rough sports practice or by your furry friend after a fun playdate, don't stress. Mud will require the same basic technique as dirt but with a couple more steps to start. If the mud is still wet, allow it to dry before getting to work on the stain. By allowing the mud to dry, you will avoid pushing it further into your carpet fibers and increasing the size of the stain. Once it's dry, carefully remove any large dry chunks doing your best to not damage the carpet fibers. Next, vacuum the spot and proceed with the same technique used to clean dirt stains.

Remove Brown Water Stains

Water is often used to clean carpet stains, so it may come as a surprise to some that water can also be the cause of stains. Clean water won't usually do much damage to carpeting, but water that has sediment in it can leave behind a nasty stain. Oftentimes, this type of stain will be caused by a leaking pipe, water coming out of potted plants, or even storm water that makes its way indoors. Figure out where the water is coming from and take care of that issue before tackling the stain. Once you're sure no more water will leak onto your carpet, start removing the stain. Keep things simple by making your own cleaning solution at home. Start by combining 1/4 teaspoon of liquid dish soap and a cup of warm water. This solution will help you remove the sediment before combating the stain. Using the same blotting technique mentioned previously, work to pull up the sediment and remove the dirt. Next, combine equal parts white vinegar and water and spray the area with the solution. Remember to not soak the area, but rather moisten it enough that you can start to remove the stain. Using a clean washcloth, blot the moistened area to remove the stain. Once the stain is gone, rinse the spot with cold water and blot it dry.
