Domestic Carpet Cleaners
Almost everyone has had the misfortune of spilling something on their carpet. This is something quite memorable if you were drinking something like black coffee, and you spilt it on your white wool carpet. The ability to get a stain out has to do with whether or not there was some type of carpet stain guard, and how quickly you are able to act in regard to removing what has spilt. Most people understand that using strong detergents on your carpet can actually not only remove the carpet stain guard, but also damage the carpet fibers at the same time. That’s why it’s good to use certain techniques when trying to remove the stains as best as you can before you use a steam cleaner or hire a professional to get the rest. So is it better to blot or scrub? Let’s take a look at both of these techniques.
Blotting Or Scrubbing?
The consensus on which technique is the most effective, and also the safest to use, is to blot with a paper talo or sponge, or a damp cloth, instead of scrubbing trying to get the stain out. Essentially, when you scrub, you are rotating all of the carpet fibers, making it easier for the liquid that you have just spilled to permeate deeper into the very fibers of the carpet. When you do this, instead of soaking up what may be resting on top of the carpet fibers due to the stain guard, you are actually helping push it deeper into the carpet through these movements. Therefore, when you get a sponge or a damp cloth, you want to gently push down on top of the stain, or what is called blotting. By doing this, you are able to soak up what is on top of the carpet fibers, and by being very gentle, you can avoid pushing the dark liquid into the carpet to the best of your ability.
Once you have done this, you will soak up a considerable amount of whatever you spilled on your carpet. You will then need to get your steam cleaner out, or contact a professional. This is the only way to truly get everything that you just spilled out of your carpet, and the faster you are able to do this, the more likely the stain will be completely gone. Hopefully, this will help you understand how to approach spills on your carpet without making the situation worse.
