April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 102

Indeed, carpet cleaning and maintenance can be a very hectic task when underestimated. Every day, as you walk around the house doing your chores, there are too many potential accidents that may occur and cause irreparable damage to your carpet. It is true that there are different types of damages that can be done on a carpet. However, one of the most common ones would be stains caused by spills. As a carpet owner you would have to deal with hard-to-remove and easy-to-remove stains every now and then. The tough stains are those that will take a lot of money, effort and time.

Actually, one of the most common of such stains would be stains caused by grease. It is true that grease originates from a variety of sources; however, the most obvious source would be that used on vehicles nowadays. Some people are well aware of how nightmarish grease stains could be when they hit the carpet. They are not only black and unsightly on the beautiful carpet, but they equally get sticky and this damages the fibers of the carpet. Nevertheless, no matter how difficult motor oil grease may appear it is not impossible to clean. You will certainly need some tips, the right tools and some patience to go through the cleaning process. Below are a few steps to follow:

Step 1; you will start by scraping off any excess grease that has settled on the carpet. This prepares the carpet for proper cleaning while keeping the stain from spreading any further. For this step, use a bread knife or a strong spoon; use this to scrape off the excess with a lot of care while making sure not to spread it to other parts of the carpet.

Step 2; after removing the excess, take a good amount of baking powder and sprinkle it over the area that has just been cleaned and then allow for 15 minutes. After the fifteen minutes have elapsed, get your vacuum cleaner and use it to absorb the baking soda. You should notice some improvement on the stained area.

Step 3: Follow the vacuuming with an application of the right carpet cleaning chemical. You may choose one that you are used to. You will want to spray this product on the affected area and then blot it out with a clean piece of cloth. This step should be repeated as often as possible, until the stain is completely removed.

Step 4; lastly, sprinkle very clean water to the affected area and use some clean towel to soak it out.

By following these easy steps you will get rid of stains that get you frustrated and ruin your beautiful carpet. A clean carpet is very important for every home.
