There are many factors that contribute to a clean apartment. However, one of the easiest ways to freshen up an entire living space is by removing unsightly stains from your carpets.
Pets, frequent visitors, or heavy foot traffic can all cause your carpets to slowly build up dark spots and stains. If you’re able to catch a stain quickly, try some of the tips in our quick clean list. If you’re removing a stain that’s set in, or dark spots from heavy foot traffic, skip to the deep clean section.
If you catch a spot or stain quickly, it’s much easier to remove, and you have more options. Resist the urge to scrub, as it pushes the material further into the carpet and makes it harder to remove.
If you have some old stains or heavy traffic areas, you will have to spend some more time and effort to clean your carpets, and you may not be able to remove the stains completely. When you mix the paste, test it in a hidden corner to make sure it won’t discolor the carpet.
Allow the carpet to dry, and check to see if the stains are successfully removed. If not, repeat the process a few more times. If you still cannot get the area clean, it may be time to rent a carpet cleaner, or hire a professional service.
