How to Spring Clean Your Carpets in Ester

Spring is a great season because of the warmer weather and longer days. However, many may not look forward to one important part of the season: spring cleaning. If you're dreading cleaning your home, remember that it has to get done at some point. As you tackle your spring cleaning checklist, don't forget about your carpets. Fairbanks Cleanpro has some tips to make your carpet cleaning easier this season.

Remove Pet Hair

Before you get started on deep cleaning your carpets, focus some of your attention on the surface of your carpet. This is especially important if you have pets running around on your carpeting. Even if you can't see the hair they leave behind, that doesn't mean it's not there. Before starting up your vacuum, grab a squeegee to get this task done. Run the squeegee over your carpet to collect all the hair hiding in plain sight. You might be surprised to see just how much hair your squeegee can collect.

Start Up Your Vacuum

If you have carpeting in your home, you know just how important it is to take care of this task regularly. Ideally, you should vacuum your carpets at least once a week, if you have pets this should be done more often. This method is effective for removing dirt, dust and other contaminants on the surface of your carpet but usually won't take care of everything hiding under the surface. For the best clean, replace your vacuum's bag or empty out the bin before vacuuming. This will help reduce the amount of dust that gets blown back onto your carpet. While you're at it, take care of your upholstery as well. Use the arm attachment to remove dust from the surface of your upholstery and window treatments.

Treat and Remove Old Stains

Carpet stains are an inevitable part of life. The best way to get rid of them is by treating them as soon as they occur, but sometimes we don't have the time to do so or may not even notice when they occur. For those set in stains threatening to become a permanent fixture in your home, there might be a couple solutions. One of the most effective ways to remove these stains is quite easy and only requires few items you likely already have at home. Create a solution by mixing one part white vinegar with two parts water in a spray bottle. Spray the stain with the solution and place a damp, clean wash cloth over the spot. Next, grab an iron and put it on its steam setting. Iron the area for about 30 seconds to remove the stain. If the stain is very  old, you may need to repeat the process a couple times to fully get rid of the stain.

Steam Clean Your Carpets

Once you've taken care of individual stains around your home, move onto deep cleaning the whole carpet. A great to take care of this yourself is with a steam cleaner. Instead of using a store bought cleaner with harsh chemicals and contaminants, make your own safe and effective solution at home. Mix together equal parts of white vinegar and water for an effective and ecofriendly cleaning. If your carpet is extra dirty, add more vinegar into the solution for a deeper clean. To avoid having your home smell like salad dressing, add a couple drops of your favorite essential oil into the solution.

Get Rid of Carpet Dents

If you're planning to change the look of your home a but by reorganizing furniture, you may be surprised by the amount of dents your carpet has acquired. Don't fret, these dents are quite easy to remove. Grab some ice cubes and place them on the dents. Allow the ice cubes to melt and proceed to gently soak up excess moisture with a clean washcloth. Next, vacuum the area and allow it to dry. This method encourages carpet fibers to plump back up and return to their normal shape.
